ASSOCIATE EDITOR – WATCHES AND JEWELLERY
We have Mr Woolnough to thank for all watch-based and time-related puns in GQ Watch (p147).
ASSOCIATE EDITOR – WATCHES AND JEWELLERY... IS THIS YOUR FAVOURITE EVER JOB TITLE?
It’s a close second to features editor of The Cairns Post. If you said it quickly, people thought you worked in Cannes.
YOUR FIRST WATCH WAS A…
Timex with a rubber strap.
SERIOUSLY, BE HONEST.
Why would I lie about this? Especially the rubber part.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE RELEASE OF 2016?
Deadpool, and the ‘Monsieur de Chanel’. It’s always exciting to see a major luxury player step up its watch game.
THE BEST TIME-BASED ANECDOTE YOU’VE OVERHEARD LATELY?
“I’ll call you back in five minutes,” from the current object of my affection. That was some time ago, though, so the ‘lately’ part might be in question.
SO, ARE SMARTWATCHES HERE TO STAY?
They are, but I don’t know how long the tech will stay on our wrists. VR might give smart glasses another chance.
IF YOU WERE TO INVEST IN ONE WATCH, WHICH WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
The Rolex Oyster ‘Perpetual Day-date 40’ with a green dial. My grandpa Cecil always wore a watch with a green dial and managed to look cool and avoid the haters, even with a name like Cecil.
