Justin Mastine-Frost

Senior Editor, Horology

Justin Mastine-Frost is a New York–based journalist obsessed with all things well-crafted. He has spent his recent years covering horology for a broad swath of the industry's leading print and digital publications, having previously been deeply entrenched in automotive journalism before a personal love of watch collecting became the catalyst for a change in fields. He also has an extensive background in the automotive world where experience as a luxury brand automotive technician helped propel his penchant for taking the technical and making it digestible (and entertaining) to readers in a variety of segments. Being a slightly obsessive collector to the core, Justin has a number of categories that feed his passion including (but not limited to) mid-century modern furniture, aerosol and abstract art, custom jewelry, and Flavio Poli glass.
