Manual Drive: Andrew and Astor & Banks

Andrew will tell you, “I’m married, I have a baby… you have to go [to watchmaking school] for two years straight, and I don’t have that option.” But with Andrew, if there’s a will, there’s a way. And he found such a way to pursue his curiosity about watch movements – and assembly – all while keeping his day job, and never enrolling in a formal horology curriculum. His resourcefulness turned into a watch company, Chicago-based Astor & Banks.
