Wei Koh Interviews Geoffrey Hess...

Wei Koh 


Geoffrey Hess

There is a Confusious proverb that says, "A single conversation with a very wise man is worth more than ten years of study", and whenever I listen to Wek Koh, I know I am in for an amazingly deep intellectual conversation. In the interview below, Wei Koh interviews Geoffrey Hess who is the CEO of and they have a really deep conversation in the current state of collecting vintage watches.

In the video Geoffrey Hess says one of the most profound things I have ever heard on the subject of watch collection:

"The average vintage watch collector is searching for an equilibrium between passion and investment. Passion is what drives us to buy these watches. It’s what gets us excited. We make sense of the world through narrative; through stories; through objects and events that connect to our aspirations. That’s what passion is. That’s what keeps you up at night. That’s what drives you to buy a watch."
