Ariel Adams

Owner, Publisher, Editor-in-chief

Fueled by an unshakable love for horology and a general curiosity for intricate things, Ariel Adams founded aBlogtoWatch in 2007 as a means of sharing his passion. Since then, ABTW has become the highest trafficked blog on luxury timepieces, and Ariel has become a contributor to other online publications such as Forbes, Departures and Tech Crunch, to name just a few. His conversational writing style and inclusive attitude brings a wider appreciation for watches the world over, and that’s just the way he likes it.

Bilal Khan

Managing Editor

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.

Patrick Kansa

Contributing Editor

Patrick Kansa (@abtw_patrick) is an Business Intelligence developer by day, and a [redacted] by night. When he’s not compiling crazy huge data sets to drive data visualizations, he’s spending time with his family, reading up on fascinating watches, whipping up something in the kitchen, or trying to graduate from being a professional amateur photographer.

The photography ties directly into another passion – watches. This is a more recent development, and has only grown since he began writing about them in 2011. He’s loves the fact that we can carry these micro machines on our wrist without a second thought, and looks at watches through the lens of practicality, uniqueness, and relative value.

And after all of that? Well, we’re not saying he is Batman, but we’ve never seen him and Batman in the same room.

James Lamdin


James Lamdin (@analogshift) is a freelance writer based in New York City with a passion for slow cars, peaty single malt scotch, and old watches. A longtime timepiece collector preoccupied with the past, he quit his day job to found analog/shift, an online boutique for a curated selection of exceptional vintage wristwatches. When he’s not scouring the planet for the very best in vintage horology, he can typically be found cruising around Manhattan in his ’67 Porsche or holding court at a pub in Hell’s Kitchen. He couldn’t think of a good enough zinger to finish this bio, so will maintain that he’s just not that clever.

Rob Nudds

Contributing Editor

Rob Nudds is a watchmaker, freelance writer and American sports fanatic based in the UK.

Rob spends most of his time trying to design the perfect watch, but is pretty sure no one will like it when he finally gets it down on paper. He looks for intrinsic congruity and cultural relevance in watch design, and has been known to get quite grouchy when he finds neither. Despite practically living on Wikipedia, he still struggles to understand digital technology and believes the Casio F-91W is either a deity in plastic or entirely powered by magic.

James Stacey

Contributing Editor

James (@jamesstacey) is a writer, dilettante photographer and part-time adventurer. An obsessive fan of many things, he loves watches for their breadth of style, historical connections and raw technical design. James has tendency for diving with dive watches, obsessing about case thickness and, despite owning a vast collection of leather straps, he lives by the adage – “when in doubt, just nato”. He also wrote this entire bio himself and is pretty sure it’s not a cry for help.
