Natasha’s love of watches started when she began working weekends in a jewelry store as a student.
She was both surprised and intrigued by the huge variety of designs available and decided to learn more about the features and benefits of different models so she could better assist customers visiting the store.
Showcasing some of the most luxurious timepieces available allowed Natasha to see and appreciate their detailed craftsmanship up close, though she couldn’t quite afford one herself!
Natasha believes that it’s possible to find a stunning timepiece at a more affordable price, and enjoys writing reviews that help people find their ideal watch at any budget.
