NEW YORK – Brian Sacawa, the professional musician and former elite-level bicycle racer behind the enormously popular men's site He Spoke Style, values the roles that quality and craftsmanship hold in men's fashion – and especially watches. A self-described "budding watch geek" who has already developed an impressive growing collection of his own, Sacawa is excited to dive even deeper into the world of vintage timepieces, heritage brands and the world of auction. Ahead of Sotheby's 8 June sale, we spoke with him about his personal aesthetic, all-time favourite watches and styling tips. BRIAN SACAWA. PHOTOGRAPH COURTESY OF HE SPOKE STYLE.
