About author / Florian

Ich schreibe gern eigene Geschichten über Uhren. Mehr Erfahrungen, als Details über Technik, Mechanik. Die begeistert mich zwar auch, aber ich denke, dass es hier andere Quellen gibt, die auf Spezifikationen von Uhren eingehen. In english: I like to write my own stories about watches. More experiences than details about technology and mechanics. That excites me too, but I think there are other sources here that go into the specifications of watches.
