3 Lessons Learned While Speed-Dating Watchmakers

January 16, 2017 . by Ken Nichols

I recently returned from a week photographing the annual conference of American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute (AWCI). I was there to teach photography and get images of the event that has been held annually since 1960.

December 8, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

In case you were not aware of it, Tissot was the official watch of the NBA this past year (and for the foreseeable future).  This took the form of new shot clocks, and a handful of team-specific watches.  Now, in conjunction with the Cleveland Cavaliers winning the championship, they’ve got a new watch available for…

Last week, we brought you word of a bit of a road show that Tissot was putting on in conjunction with their new NBA partnership. With that particular article, we were focused in on the events of Chicago. Well, for those who could not make it, you do still have a chance to win tickets.



The Tissot NBA Roadshow is Coming to Chicago

January 14, 2016 . by Patrick Kansa

I like talking about local watch makers, and I also like bringing you word of cool watch-related events that are coming to my neck of the woods. Tissot is making a lot of noise around their new partnership with the NBA. At the moment, we do not have much in the way of new designs or team-specific watches, but they are working to get the word out about the relationship.
