This blog documents the development of my interest in watchmaking and wristwatches since 2008.  It is common for middle aged men to develop obsessions and this has become mine.  My obsession has nothing much to do with watch collecting, although I suppose this is an inevitable by-product of my particular flavour of WISdom* but is driven by the thrill of reviving something complex and potentially beautiful, and then using it.  It is fair to say that the majority of the projects described here concern Japanese watches but you will see the odd Swiss interloper as well as mention of flirtations with newer watches, most of which are insprired by the classic vintage aesthetic.
