Adore Gems & Timepieces - - CONTRIBUTORS -

DAR­REN HO’s ob­ses­sion with watches has some un­for­tu­nate side ef­fects, such as the oc­ca­sional drool­ing when he sees an haute hor­logerie piece. In this is­sue, the man­ag­ing ed­i­tor of Au­gust Man writes about the re­la­tion­ship be­tween watch brands and the sil­ver screen (page 64). His goal is to even­tu­ally set up a com­pany that re­searches new ma­te­ri­als and oc­cupy a small part of this niche mar­ket. Prob­a­bly in the next three decades or so.

A free­lance jour­nal­ist and ed­i­to­rial con­sul­tant who has lived on three dif­fer­ent con­ti­nents, Y-JEAN MUN-DELSALLE has come face to face with emerg­ing and es­tab­lished artists, designers and crafts­men, and the movers and shak­ers of the world to­day. She finds joy and so­lace in writ­ing and con­trib­utes reg­u­larly to re­gional and in­ter­na­tional ti­tles, shin­ing a spot­light in par­tic­u­lar on art, ar­chi­tec­ture, de­sign, horol­ogy and jewellery. In this is­sue, she lists the 10 most ex­pen­sive com­pli­cated time­pieces on the mar­ket (page 60).

EL­IZ­A­BETH DO­ERR has been a reg­u­lar in the world of watch pub­lish­ing since 1991 and is the ed­i­tor-in-chief of horo­log­i­cal plat­form Quil­ A reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to, she pub­lished her first book on in­de­pen­dent watch­mak­ing in 2010, ti­tled 12 Faces of Time. She lends her ex­per­tise to Adore with a fea­ture on the dif­fer­ent types of cer­ti­fi­ca­tions used by watch­mak­ers (page 54).

When SEAN MOSSADEG isn’t busy chas­ing his dreams of be­ing a Sith Lord and prac­tis­ing yoga with Yoda, he writes for Au­gust Man and its time­piece sup­ple­ment MVMT. Fas­ci­nated by watches from a young age, his love for all things horo­log­i­cal is only sur­passed by his ob­ses­sion with cats — es­pe­cially fluffy ones. He gets caught up in the world of smart­watches in this edi­tion (page 38).
