I’ve been thinking about this for quite a while and I’d like to do it. I’d like to collect a book of watch essays for publication called “About Time.” It would be a vanity project for us watch geeks, but I think we could also raise a bit of interest in the mainstream world as well. I’d like to propose the following:
Send me your best essays, 500-5000 words, on all aspects of watch love. Watchmaking, watchbuying, getting Pop’s watch after he’s passed… everything is fair game. Co-editor Scott and I will read and edit them for content and clarity and we will collect them into a print-on-demand title that will be sold on this site. They will be sold at cost, but all comers will be considered for inclusion. Please email essays to john at wristwatchreview.com with the subject heading “ESSAY.” We will hold this call open until October.
I hope we can get some great essays and I think this will be a blast.
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.
