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 thought we'd bring you something a bit different. We've got you covered with a first-class dealer of vintage watches, of course, but we're also psyched to introduce you to a wildly talented artist and a one-stop watch strap shop. Enjoy!
Julie Kraulis is a Toronto-based illustrator whose drawings of famous wristwatches are so stunningly real, many folks can't believe that they're not actually photographs. Having impressed even F.P. Journe with her incredible work, she's clearly at the top of her game. You can buy limited edition prints of these drawings from her website.
We're probably not telling you anything you don't already know here — namely, that Miami's Menta Watches has some of the best vintage goods in the business. But in case you don't follow their Instagram, well, you should. From rare Rolex to important military watches and more, you can find it here.
Ever wonder what kind of strap would go best with your newly acquired watch? Just give our friends at C&B a follow. From affordable NATOs to the unique Chevron to high-end leather, they sell it all. Peruse their feed for some inspiration — you're bound to find a strap you can't live without.
