Welcome to Follow Me, a monthly column showcasing our favorite watch-related Instagram accounts, from collectors to dealers and everything in between.
This month, we've got three great accounts for you to check out that tick a wide range of horological boxes: Analog/Shift sells vintage watches from a couple thousands bucks all the way into "If you have to ask..."-territory, while A Collected Man concentrates on the high end of the market and Ed Jelley writes about and photographs affordable watches and EDC.
If you're looking for special vintage watch in New York City (or anywhere in the world, for that matter), chances are you'll eventually find yourself at Analog/Shift. Their Instagram is a must-follow, as it features watches that will sell before they ever hit the company's website, so be sure to check it often. Also, make sure not to miss Fridays.
London-based A Collected Man sells high-end vintage and modern independent timepieces and collectibles, but they also run an excellent online journal on horological, menswear and related subjects. Their IG is chock full of drop-dead gorgeous watches from brands such as F.P. Journe, Patek Philippe, Audemars Piguet and more.
Ed writes about affordable (generally sub-$5k) watches for our friends at Worn & Wound, but his own blog covers fountain pens, and he writes about EDC for Everyday Carry. The versatile writer and photographer's IG is filled with great shots of fun watches that anyone can aspire to own — the sort of stuff we love here at Gear Patrol.
