James D. Malcolmson has been covering the Swiss watch industry as a journalist for more than 15 years. As a contributing editor to Robb Report and the editor of Robb Report Watch Collector, he has enjoyed an insider’s perspective and witnessed a new appreciation of fine mechanical watches blossom in the United States.

John Lyon is a senior editor at Robb Report magazine who has contributed to the publication, both online and in print, since 2009. While attending UCLA his passions for the written word and contemporary international events pulled him in two radically different directions. The pleasure of writing eventually won out, and he earned a bachelor’s degree in English and a minor in global studies.

As a research editor at Robb Report, Christina Garofalo covers men’s style and topics including watches, travel, and dining on the web. She is also a contributing writer at First We Feast, a website dedicated to popular food culture, and the editorial manager for Serendipity Labs coworking spaces. Her passion projects include a screenplay and a collection of poems that recently received honorable mention from HotStreet.org.
