This site is under construction
...and probably will always be, as I rarely find time to work on it...

This site is solely meant to provide a "visual reference" for the occasional watch-talk with friends, collectors and sellers. Its just pictures and information on some of my favourite watches. Will give the visitor an idea of what kind of timepieces I collect and am interested in, but is just a fraction of my collection. I collect a broad variety of watches - as I'm not interested in particular brands that much, but in design.
My main interest though are LED watches, jumphour watches and early electrics/electronics.
But anything else huge, wild and odd is welcome to be added to my collection...
If you think you have a watch that I might be interested in, just let me know...

I'm living in Germany - and English is not my native language. Yet I decided to make this website in English. Keep that in mind and forgive me if I don't use all the words correctly...

I hold © on all pictures on this site (if no other © is stated). Please don't reproduce the pictures without my prior permission. Hope I won't find them in an eBay ad some day...

None of the timepieces pictured on this site are for sale at the moment.
