Portrait of John McGonigle and his watch  0 Comments


I met John the first time at TEMPUS II. But he made me felt relaxed with his Irish charm and straight talk. My conversations with both John and Roger Smith in preparation to our Tempus Plenary Session on British Horology, both men shared with me their passions and plans for their future. I had a great sense of their passion and look forward to their future enterprise. John impressed me as a genuine and down to earth watchmaker who was happy to make new friends and share about his watches.
John also allowed me to photograph his gold tourbillon with him modeling it - as I always preferred - a watch maker with his ware.
In addition to the portrait, I have here a sample of one of my images of his watch. A photomontage should follow in quite soon (when time permits!).
