I bought my first mechanical watch in 2019
Tudor, Rolex
The Tudor Black Bay 41. I don't count my previous quartz watches.
Realistically: the Rolex Submariner. If money were no object, it would be the Rolex Day-Date 40 or something a bit out-there like a Rainbow Daytona.
I was never particularly interested in watches, but then, in 2019, I decided to purchase a mechanical timepiece – and thus, a new passion was born. I absorbed as much information as I could. I was particularly drawn to iconic watches with long and exciting histories. Suddenly, watches became more than just a hobby. In late 2019, I began working as a writer at WATCHVICE, a popular German YouTube channel dedicated to watches. As of 2019, I also regularly contribute to Chrono24 Magazine, where I'm always glad to share new and engaging content with our community. While I'm now interested in anything and everything to do with watches, Tudor will always have a special place in my heart. The brand was not only the spark that ignited a fiery passion but also what led me down a new career path.
