Since May 2015 I have been discovering the world of Vintage Watches.
Writing for a great client, Momentum Dubai, I have taken over the role of creating in-depth reviews on watches, watchmakers, technical insights, and all things related to the haute horologie industry.
“Wayne B is a great person to work with. I have enjoyed a great treat of professionalism, in both managing me with my requests as well as the content of work. The way he handles time is what a client wants to see: Honest what he can and can’t do, gives himself enough time to react and finally over delivers. He is very flexible to amend his work according to your preference and puts your needs over any personal attitude. ”
The articles are all aimed at enthusiasts and collectors, high-end watch nuts and anyone with an interest in timekeeping. The tone is professional, yet approachable, aimed at drawing interest to the exclusive watch boutique in Dubai’s commercial center. The magazine articles are more upbeat, and feature themes that appeal to the target audience.
Writing every week on behalf of the proprietor, Tariq Maliq, I have discovered that the watch world goes incredibly deep, and that it is filled with amazing stories and insights. The history, evolution and craftsmanship of mechanical watches is a fascinating niche.
Here are some links, so feel free to browse, but beware, the subject becomes addictive!
