Waiting for Alain Silberstein

Life, by its very nature, is not a stationary occupation.  As a watch observer it is easy to lose track of people and brands.

I first laid eyes on an Alain Silberstein watch traveling from Helsinki to London.  It was the GMT alarm with the trumpeting angel on the dial.  I still hold out hope that someday I will find that watch and be able to own it.

I have, in many ways, been chasing Alain Silberstein.  First as a potential buyer/customer, and now as someone anxious to write about him and  his watches.  He and his watches have taken on  an almost mythical quality for me.  I have met him once - very briefly - at BaselWorld 2011, and since then I have not seen or heard much.

His website says "see you soon!" so I hope that means just a bit more patience is required.  For now, we are waiting for Alain Silberstein.
