Of grail watches and life changing experiences.

Nov 26, 2020,11:28 AM

I've been reading these forums for a long time, but it's the first time I'm posting anything here. I hope you're interested in hearing the story behind my 191.039 as well as what made me decide to become a watchmaker at the age of 35.

Kind regards,

Is it still possible to edit my original thread? I would like to share the story that is closely related to watches and my Lange, but I would rather not make a completely new thread for it.

Welcome! Beautiful and rich pictures!

Glad you found a direction you seem to enjoy. Many people go through their whole life without finding something they are passionate about. Me I have too many LOL.
