Historical PuristSPro moderator and editor of French blog Equation du Temps, François-Xavier Overstake knows his watches. Most importantly, he knows how to explain a watch in a good way as he’s also a collector. Giving a personal opinion and not trying to issue an objective point of view, Overstake’s singular analysis is sought after by many.

If you don’t read him every day, a lot of you probably follow François-Xavier Overstake on Instagram (@equationdutemps) with his recurrent wrist shots all paired with striped shirts... better than any copyright or watermark.

Overstake has a solid taste and is always exploring in-person new watches before issuing his first opinion. With that rigorous approach, he has a structured and personal analysis where other commentator’s views don't match.
