The Watchmaker by Dustin Cohen

View all 10 Photos

Filmmaker Dustin Cohen embarks on a journey to capture the story of Brooklyn through the eyes of the craftsmen that live and produce there in a series called “Made in Brooklyn.” After his first installment “The Violin Maker,” Cohen takes us through the life of the artisan watchmaker, David Sokosh where he shows us a beautiful portrayal of the intimate relationship between a man and his watches.

“It’s really easy to tell what time it is if you have a cell phone,” Sokosh said. “But there’s a little bit of a luxury of having something mechanical on your wrist, something that you can look at and tell what time it is and that it is little more alive.”
