    As a watch-aficionado I once was introduced into steampunk-watches made by Haruo Suekichi
    Crazy stuff. He makes about 6.000-7.000 watches a year!

    My kindergarten was special and, being a bit rural, emphasised crafts. We learned to make ships out of scrap wood with hammers, nails and saws in addition to other clay figures. So I had a background of craft since kindergarten — I’d say it’s the root of my career.
    I also always liked taking things apart to see what’s actually inside the mechanism, I admire it. These days, nano technology is just too small for my hands!(…)Myself and my watches are often misunderstood because I get categorised as an artist and I have many artist friends — but I wouldn’t call myself an artist. I just make and create stuff and really enjoy the making process.

    As far as I know, there isn’t a big market for this kind of watches. Only two or three brand produce some kind of steampunk-watches (I don’t wanna write names ;) ).
    Mostly they’re individual creations which makes this genre so impressively interesting!
