THE WORLD’S GO-TO WATCH-GUY

Postby koimaster » February 25th 2018, 2:04pm

It’s the mid afternoon on a Friday, the sun is long packed away behind clouds and we are finding us being next to a bunch of greatly decorated shipping containers. After entering and walking up a few steel stairs we are greeted with a big open “Welcome”. The words are coming from a guy we have been looking forward to meet for a long, long time. Namely, Kristian Haagen. If the name does not ring a bell, lets just start digging into his impressive resume:

One of the co-founders of the social media for watch-geeks, 8past10, doing consulting and strategy work for some of the biggest watch-brands including Vacheron Constantin, Glashütte Original and Graham (to name a few), founder of the magazine Timegeeks that has been published monthly since August 2009, overseeing Bruun Rasmussen’s watch-auctions, author of six books – book no. 7 is released in April – which he publishes himself. Haagen runs his own webshop where you find watches, a Caran D’ache fountain pen costing +23.000€, bracelets and much more curated by the watch-geek himself. We have probably forgotten something, however, the list of his activities is quite impressive to say the least.

Just looking at him makes me certain that he's the last mother fucker I'd go to for advice on a watch.

I like his glasses, they go well with that $200 haircut.

Interestingly, it's pretty rare to seen a Danish douchebag. But there he is.
