A Man and His Watch : Matthew Hranek :This is a woman who had never owned a watch, banished the one I had given her to the back of a drawer, and who managed, at best, to feign enthusiasm for my watch obsession. This is incredible. I want a watch like that. An instant patina junkie, she swiftly commandeered my faded s Chronographe Suisse bi-compax, which has not left her wrist since. Yesterday, unprompted, she tells me about her morning winding ritual, then I get a text that her colleague had on a Cartier Tank. This was an unfathomable transformation. Simple, elegant, deeply compelling.

New Watches. From The Journal. Watch Finder. Speaking with people from diverse careers and with different horological interests, the author introduces us to an artist who's been wearing the same digital watch for 20 years, a race car driver with a small collection of trophy watches from his storied career, and a chef whose prized timepiece was a special anniversary gift. What ties all of these men together is that the watch they put on their wrist each day carries immense personal significance and is a small totem of who they are, where they have been, and where they hope to go. Through the stories of the watches — and with photographer Stephen Lewis's big, beautiful images — we get small, insightful biographies of the characters who own them.
