After selling his company in 2018, Tim decided to purse his passion in vintage Rolexes and launched Fog City. Since the age of 7, Tim has been an avid fan of Rolexes, saving every cent in his piggy bank to buy his next piece. 30 years later, Tim has the same passion a with bigger dream. As a global traveler, he hunts around the world searching for the best pieces to revive and share with his clients through his platform.
