About

Hi there. I’m Nigel, and I am the main person behind Watch Pursuits.

I sort of accidentally immersed myself into this world while researching for a simple cheap watch to wear after breaking my Apple Watch a few years ago.

That watch? A simple Seiko 5 SNKL23.

I remembered being mesmerised by the sweeping seconds hand, hearing it tick, and how the watch shines under the sun.

I was hooked, and there’s no going back.

I have since owned and sold some watches along the way, an experience I look forward to sharing on this website.

Great Watches Do Not Have To Be Expensive

Watch Pursuits aims to show that great watches do not have to be expensive. Horology can be a low-cost and extremely rewarding hobby.

In fact, some of the most legendary watches, such as the Seiko SKX007 or Casio F-91W are well within the three-figure range. Even James Bond wears affordable timepieces too!

Also, if you covet some expensive Rolexes or JLC, there are many homage watches that could cure that itch, at an affordable price.

This is why… WatchPursuits.com will focus on watches that do not exceed four-figures in price tag.

We focus on reviewing the watches, brands as well as the movements, complications accessories etc. We also aim to help you with your watch purchases by recommending great watches that aren’t a rip-off.
