That’s right – the staff here at WWR is growing! Our newest writer is likely a name you’re familiar with, as he’s been submitting some great coverage of crowd-funded watches for some time now – Matt Himmelstein. Want to know a little bit more about our new teammate? Read on to check out his bio.
In order to stay out of the well established territories of the East Coast, which is owned by the illustrious John Biggs, and the Midwest, laid claim to by Patrick Kansa, I live on the left coast, specifically in Orange County, California. My background (and day job) is in engineering, which might explain my appreciation of mechanical watches. I love the workmanship required to coax these tiny parts into keeping accurate time.
My introduction to the site came through my fascination with crowd funded projects, and yes, I do back some of the watch projects I have highlight. What I find most appealing in a watch is an interesting design that does not sacrifice usability. Another key is value; I appreciate high end watches, but am not in a position to buy them. when I am not working or checking out watches, I am generally rock climbing, biking or playing golf.
Matt will of course continue to bring us great coverage of the crowd-funded watch scene. In addition, he’ll be taking up regular news articles as well as getting into the hands-on review game. I for one am looking forward to the assistance, and am looking forward to what Matt brings to the table.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
