Kiss drummer Eric Singer talks about his growing watch collection

When we last talked to Eric Singer he was talking up Ball Watches on YouTube. Now he’s gone full-bore into collecting, talking about his many watches with the NY Times.

?A love of watches — and music — is in his blood. “My dad had some nice watches,” he said. “I would take them out and play with them, before I knew I shouldn’t.

“He had a Jaeger-LeCoultre Day Date Triple Month Calendar Moonphase. It was so cool — I could see the man in the moon. He owned a Gallet mini chronograph, the world’s smallest chronograph. I thought it was just a cool stopwatch.”

Mr. Singer recalled that his father, who was band leader for the Meyer Davis band and his own Johnny Singer Orchestra, gave him his first watch, a mechanical timepiece from Germany, when he was just 5 or 6 years old.

Singer is one of many rockers who are hardcore into watches. You can see a few fun photos here including Elvis in a Hamilton and John Lennon with a Patek and I know that Eric Clapton is a mechanical fan. I guess they need something to keep the time.

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.
