David is a writer, technologist, SAE-published engineer and patent-holder who has been fascinated with watches from his earliest years. He brings technical knowledge, an entrepreneurial spirit and an appreciation of all things vintage to Beyond the Dial.
As a Brit now living in the mid-Hudson Valley, David’s career has spanned California, the Netherlands, the Channel Islands, France, Belgium and now New York with jobs as varied as designing spacecraft to implementing secure financial networks for the world’s largest banks. He has a Mathematics degree from the University of Bath and a post-graduate diploma in Spacecraft Design from Southampton University.
David has deep interests in both the history of Seiko watches and everything Ferrari; making several pilgrimages to the storied Italian manufacturer to indulge the later.
When not working, writing, restoring watches, cooking or driving his vintage Ferrari, David can usually be found trying to keep up with his three young children.
