Welcome to Timeline.Watch
. We invite you to be part of our story
We believe that understanding the background and context in which a timepiece was created increases its importance and beauty. We have created a vintage watch online encyclopedia that catalogs timepieces by model, brand, production year, and through their styles and functions (such as diver, alarm, extra-flat, triple calendar, and many others).
The Dan Henry Collection
I was born a collector. As a child, I collected seashells, coins, stamps, magnets, stuff that glows in the dark — basically anything that fascinated me.
When I was ten, I received a Roskopf pocket watch as a present. I remember staying awake all night cleaning, polishing, and staring at this wonderful gift. I soon became a fanatic vintage watch collector. Thirty-five years later, I still spend nights examining my favorite watch — which is usually the latest one I acquired!
My collection has expanded steadily, and so has my desire to share it. First, came an Instagram account, where I could meet other fanatical watch-collecting people like me. Then, came the need to make something bigger out of my collection.
And so a collection turned into a online global collective
Timeline.Watch is not about an individual collection — it is about creating a online global collective of treasured watches from enthusiasts all over the world, and bringing images and information into a living and growing permanent digital encyclopedia of these beautiful timepieces.
We believe that every collector is a natural-born keeper. However, collecting should not be about hiding; it is about hunting, studying, and sharing. This is why collectors and enthusiasts get together.
With that in mind, I invite you to take your watches out of the drawer and make them part of history. Click here to join us on Timeline.Watch.
