My name is Michal and I’m not a watch collector nor a watch expert. I got interested in the art and history of watches a few years ago after finding my grandpas old watch in one of the drawers. My grandpa passed away almost 25 years ago so I felt a special connection after finding out that he used to wear it every day. The watch was scratched, was missing a few parts and didn’t run so I took it for a repair. A few days later it started ticking again and I wear it during all important occassions in my life…

I always liked learning about how stuff works and while I don’t really fully understand everything about mechanical watches, my plan is to open a few and take a look at the magic that makes it tick. Hopefully I won’t break too many in the process and will learn a bit. 

Welcome to my digital dusty watch box.
