Video: SIHH 2019 Best of Show - Kristian Haagen

Some people comment on watches and others who collect them. Scandinavia’s Kristian Haagen has the specificity to be competent in both categories. We never know which Haagen we’re getting, the collector or the specialist. Let’s discover his selection for SIHH 2019.

Since 2002, Kristian Haagen has written several relevant books regarding watches and a plethora of articles throughout essential media. Kristian is also co-founder of 8past10, an app for watch collectors, and he’s extremely prolific on social media.

We had the chance to sit down with him on day three of SHH 2019 to know which watches from the fair particularly impressed him. To validate his earlier selection, we crossed paths with him again later in the show to re-confirm that he still confirms his primary choices.

And receive each week a custom selection of articles.
