    KISS Drummer WIS

    The December issue of Watch Time magazine has a great interview with drummer Eric Singer currently of KISS. This guy reminds me of so many of us in this forum... heck, he may be a member.

    When the interviewer observed that Singer really seems crazy about watches, Singer responds, "Sometimes I can identfy a person's watch from all the way across the room. I have fun watching old movies on YouTube to find out which watches the actors wore."

    Later in the interview, Singer says, "At home, I like to wear two watches at once. I change them as often as four times a day."

    This guy has a great collection, is very knowledgeable, and has an obvious passion for watches. Great read. Check it out when you have a chance.

    Couldn't find that story, but found this story about Cristophe Claret, pretty incredible stuff! Besides all of the incredible movements he designed, he's a precision machine tool designer as well. Take a look at the photo of his manufacturing production area!

    Too many watches, only two wrists and never enough time...

    You lie! He doesn't even wear a watch! See for yourself!

    So what difference does it make, whether it's 20 minutes or 20 years, since neither amounts to the faintest echo of the tiniest whisper in the thunder of time.

    Re: KISS Drummer WIS

    There was a thread with a link to a video with him talking about Ball watches and the train crash in the early 1900's that started official railroad time. I'll see if I can search it (if the new format allows it).


    EDIT - bingo!: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f239/an...re-319061.html (the video link is at the end in the last post)

    WatchTime just ran a story about him. It was a pretty interesting article. I would never take a member of Kiss to be a WIS. There is also a video of him talking about Ball watches on YouTube.

    The video is posted by the Ball USA President Jeff Hess. Here is the link from back stage at Tampa :

    This is his second interview this year in a watch magazine.
    His collection looks to be stellar and his knowledge is terrific.
    Someone I'd like to meet one day.
