TimeCaptain’s perspective

Hamilton King Pilot

A cool Hamilton King Pilot from TimeCaptain’s collection

I was asked, recently, if I am in the “watch” industry. No. I’m not. I am just a blogger. I don’t sell watches for a living and I really don’t have any connection to the industry, per se. I have a full-time job and watches (timepieces) are just a hobby for me. Well, it’s more of an obsession.

My goal, in blogging, is simply to share my passion and learn. Every day, I learn something new about my passion and by writing about it, I learn even more. Each time I write a blog, I read some references or talk to experts and I expand my knowledge. The more I learn, the more I enjoy the world of timepieces.

By blogging, I also hope to reach someone and infect them with the same sickness as mine — this crazy obsession with timepieces. I’m also trying to explain to people why I have this obsession — why timepieces are so important to me. I want to encourage people to put some thought into their timepiece selection.

I also want to promote WatchPaper. The guys in charge of WatchPaper are great guys and I would like to contribute, in my own small way, to their success. I think WatchPaper has a bright future.

So you see, my blog is all about passion and intersest. When you read my blog posts, I want you to see watches through the eyes of an addict — a hopelessly passionate collector of fine timepieces. A fellow blogger advised me to stay honest and I’ll definitely do that, although I’m a very positive guy by nature. If you have some down time this weekend, browse WatchPaper and check out my blogs. But be careful- it could be expensive as you get the urge to shop for a serious timepiece.

Yours truly,


TimeCaptain is a self-confessed timepiece junkie.  He spends nearly all of his spare time buying,  selling,  trading,  researching, admiring and trying different timepieces. He's also a fanatic Formula 1 fan, having followed every single Grand Prix since 1991.  He switches to NFL football in the fall and roots for the Green Bay Packers. A child of the 1980's, TimeCaptain is mad about 80's music,  TV, cinema and pop culture.  Another interest of TimeCaptain is space exploration and the study of distant planets and galaxies. When asked about his favorite watch,  TimeCaptain remembers Enzo Ferrari's answer as to his favorite car- "the one I haven't built yet."
