These two paths woven together over time, influencing and guiding one another along the way, converged 5 years ago.

Based in New York, and with a particular appreciation for vintage watches made between the 1920’s and the 1960’s, Adam has chased, owned, and placed important watches in private collections and museums all over the world.
