Based in the Toronto area, Ian brings a lot of different and unusual pieces to Instagram. He shares your love for watches (and food!) and brings lots of yummy goodness to our feed each week. He’s a great example of a #WISdad, often capturing his kid doing some unboxings of new pieces. He’s got everything from Seiko and Citizen to Omega and Tudor and lots in between and he’s avid on the forums as well.
