All info on mechanical watches and hobby watchmaking in one place

In the years I’ve been “busy” with watches I often found that the info is scattered. Some information is on a forum there, someone knows something about this etc. Especially for the beginner collector or enthusiast, it can be overwhelming and confusing.

I created WahaWatches to collect as much knowledge and info as possible in one place and also as a means to share my passion with all of you.


I can’t and I don’t want to write all the articles myself. I welcome all collectors, amateur watchmakers, and enthusiasts who’d like to write an article to contact me.

It’s a fantastic way to give to the watch community and share your knowledge and experience.

About me

I’ve always had a fascination for vintage watches, listening to the ticking of my grandfather’s watch.

After he passed away I inherited his watch and I decided to get it restored. A couple watchmakers told me that the watch wasn’t worth the time, effort and money to fix it. Of course, an heirloom piece is priceless so I decided to do it myself.

From that time I started to appreciate watches more and more. I started to collect them and started learning all I could about watchmaking.
