Watchismo describes himself thus:
Obsessively punctual, horologically verbose, Watchismo, flouts the rules of physics — he collects Time. Specializing in unusual, vintage wristwatches of the 1950s-1980s, he is currently germinating his blog, The Watchismo Times, a reliquary of obscure timepieces from bygone eras as well as the cutting-edge designs of today. Watchismo’s affection for Oddity was evident from childhood, then nourished during his first job — in the art department of Pee-wee’s Playhouse — before he was even old enough to order his own absinthe. As his vintage watch collection grew, so did his eccentric vision, which pupated during his years as a dimensional illustrator for the likes of Rolling Stone, Absolut, Taco Bell, Warner Bros, and Budweiser. Finally he emerged from his chrysalis as the time-sensitive man he is today. Watchismo.com is the website where you can purchase vintage timepieces from his personal collection. At this moment, he is winding up for the genesis of his own creation — the first original Watchismo watch.
