The first time someone meets me in public places, the conversation typically goes something like this: Them: “Hey, can you get me a discount on that new Rolex, Omega, Lange, or whatever? ” Me: “Nah, I really can’t. ” After the awkwardness subsides there, the next question is usually, “Okay, so then who’s next upon Talking Watches? ” And, usually, I have a handful of names with which to reply that might mean something to said John Q. Public – like a professional baseball player (with exceptionally good taste in watches and cameras), a noted writer (with exceptionally good taste in cars and comedy), or a watch-world intellectual, or perhaps a well-known financial institution. Today, however , you’re getting nothing of that. Few know the name Morgan King. He’s not a celebrity, or even an active poster of his watches on Instagram (but, then does he even exist? ). He lives a somewhat quiet life in rural Los Angeles and is one of the most unsuspicious, down-to-earth, as well as fun-loving collectors I’ve ever encountered. Morgan is just a great guy – and one that many might confuse for a man considerably younger than he is. But don’t be confused, Morgan King is a connoisseur and watch collector of the highest order. The majority of Morgan’s collection consists of vintage chronographs from Iwc, Heuer, Beritling watch, and others. But that’s not all he’s got. Jacob Co Replica
