After getting his start as a stock boy in a jewelry store and watching them expand to carry Swiss watch brands including: Ulysse Nardin, Oris and Roger Dubuis, he was hooked. He read every watch magazine as it entered the store and even collected old Wristwatch Annuals. His first watch is an Oris XXL Chronograph which he still owns. He has also owned a Graham Chronofighter Oversized, a Panerai PAM 251 Daylight and an Oris Pro Driver. His ultimate grail watch is the ultra rare Kari Voutilainen Monopoussoir Chronograph. He has a tremendous respect for the art and science of watchmaking.
After getting into watches at a young age, Josh acquired his first luxury watch while still in high school, the Omega 300m GMT 50th Anniversary.

He started at Govberg Jewelers in 2012 and it has only fueled his passion for collecting timepieces.
Newbie to watches but a quick learner. She loves the history of watches and loves learning how watches work. She prefers Rolex and Omega watches but is learning the history behind other brands. Her watch of choice right now is her vintage Omega Ladymatic that is a mere 19mm. She has her eye on a few other watches including the Plum dial Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36mm and a Patek Philippe Twenty ~4 (4910/10 A011). While she enjoys the look of vintage watches, she is excited to learn about new models and build her collection.
