I’m pleased to announce that Mytro is now available on Amazon.com. It’s available as an ebook now but will be available as a paperback shortly.
It’s been a long road and it’s been a great deal of fun building a book and learning about self-publishing. I’m glad I got to share it with you.
I’ll be offering a few things in the next few weeks to sweeten the pot for buyers but anything you can do to help out in these crucial first few says would be amazing. I appreciate your support and look forward to your thoughts on the book!

Movado is a brand we’ve not covered too much on the site, as they don’t seem to really capture the attention of watch lovers. I myself hadn’t paid much attention to the brand (other than a rather unique solid gold one a family member had for awhile) until a co-worker stopped by, rather excited to show me his newest watch. As you can tell by even a quick look at the pictures, this particular model comes from their Museum line, which is delineated (at least in my mind) by the silver dot that shows up at 12 o’clock.
