We all love a great story – they are at the heart of everything we do at MrWatchMaster. We seek out the best stories connected to watches and bring them to life.

Our series, The Story Of Your Watch, gives you an insight into the stories that motivate people to choose a specific watch and the special occasions they celebrate asking two simple questions…

  1. What is the story of the watch you bought to mark a special occasion in your life? 
  2. Tell us about the watch you bought because of specific story attached to it?

Our next story comes from Thierry Hess who is the Head of Marketing at Armin Strom.

When I was 10 years old I was standing with my father in front of a watch boutique in Bern. He asked me which watch attracts me the most and it was the Omega Speedmaster. I didn’t know at this point who exactly Omega were and I didn’t know the story with the first watch on the moon.

The idea to buy this model was one that followed me for years now and I always thought back to this moment with my father in front of the store. So a few years back I decided to buy a speedmaster from 1986 because this is my year of birth and yes probably the story that this was the first watch on the moon also helped that I have bought the piece.
