Bilal Khan

Bilal lives in Los Angeles by way of New York and shares the same appreciation and love of watches that likely brought you to aBlogtoWatch. His least favorite question to be asked is "what's your favorite watch?" since the answer changes every day. His collection began with the watch that has likely fueled horological obsession for countless people, the Omega Speedmaster. Since then he has worn, enjoyed, or mocked about every other watch out there. You'll have to ask about the whole collection in person, though.
