“Hi, I’m Dan Spitz. I’m a master watchmaker and I also co-founded the band Anthrax.”

In 1995 Dan Spitz quit his thrash metal band Anthrax to find some quiet. A third-generation watchmaker, Spitz quit the band and learned the trade and now builds his own complicated pieces. “There’s no roadmap for those pieces,” he says. He’s an incredible dude. Check out the video below and celebrate watches repaired by the guy who wrote “Death From Above.”
