Purist of the month

1. Please introduce yourself!

Well, I could begin like in a W.A.A. (Watch Alcoholic Anonymous) meeting: “Hello, my (nick)name is Alkiro and I’m a watch addict” and the gathering would reply “Hello Alkiro, welcome here” ;-)

No, I’m just a French guy very close to make his mid-life crisis who previously worked in Finance as a Derivatives Strategist (I know, nobody’s perfect!) in Paris and now lives in Geneva after following his wife last year. I’ve been living in couple for almost 8 years with a really sweet and understanding woman (really important for our passion in my opinion) and we have a 4.5 years old son.

Many of you already know my “own story”. I’ve had the chance to take a sabbatical year to experience, at first hand, my passion for watches by studying horology. After I passed my exams last December and April, I will now go back working in Finance (I know “boring” but it’s my other passion… which helps me to finance the first one!).
