Plus, remembrance of the Casio F7 given to him by his grandfather,watches he'd like to pass on to his own children and taking an Urwerk UR210 for a ride on the subway.

"That was the snowball. The grain of sand that became the pearl of my collecting. And it just went out of control from there." Says Craniotes, self proclaimed horology nut and co-founder of Redbar. "There have been many 'grails' that I've attained. You get up to [a certain] bar and think, 'this is as high as I'm ever going to go,' and then you just reach higher and higher."
