About the Author:

“What started as childhood fascination has turned into a full-time occupation. I am Amr Sindi, a young Saudi Arabian born to a family of horophiles. My own initiation into the magical world of horology was at 5 years old, when I received a Flik Flak from my grandmother upon her return from a trip to Switzerland. It’s been a burning passion ever since.”

Amr began sharing his passion for watches  and building his knowledge of watchmaking on, where he became the youngest moderator on the site’s history and still remains a moderator today.

Through his professional experience within the watch industry in Switzerland, Amr aims to bring in-depth content straight from the source.
