Founder and editor-in-chief of atimelyperspective.com, Roberta Naas is a veteran award-winning journalist in the watch industry with nearly 30 years of experience. She was the first woman watch editor in the US market – breaking in to an “all boys network” with a pioneering spirit that would be her signature to this day. With a Master of Arts degree in newspaper journalism from the Newhouse School, Syracuse University, and as a member of Sigma Delta Chi, the Society of Professional Journalists, Naas brings responsible, factual – yet always timely and insightful — reporting of the watch industry to the forefront.
An authority in the watch industry, Naas has studied timepieces and horology from the ground up – visiting watch factories around the world, taking watch courses (disassembling and reassembling watches) with brands such as Jaeger-LeCoultre, and witnessing vast changes and advances in technology and materials. She has regularly interviewed international CEO’s, brought breaking news to light, and been given coveted behind-the-scenes access to places in horology others only wish they could go. Naas is one of the most well-respected, well-regarded watch journalists in the world, traveling the globe to re-discover time again and again.
Naas has authored five books on current watches (Jewels of Time, Times of Arabia), as well as on the history of time and timepieces (Great Timepieces of the World, Master Wristwatches, Masters of the Millennium), and has written for such esteemed newspapers as the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Herald Tribune, Financial Times. Naas continues to write for the world’s most trusted newspapers, consumer magazines and trade publications – turning out dozens of leading, informative articles per month. Currently she is the timepiece editor at Niche Media — the publisher of top lifestyle publications such as LA Confidential, Gotham, Vegas, Boston Common, Philadelphia Syle, Capitol File — and others – where they are the definitive voice of the city.
Her oath at atimelyperspective.com is to bring the facts to light about new timepieces, their masterful movements, the technology and people behind them, brands and directions they take — all to give insight into the wonderful world of haute horlogerie to discerning collectors and enthusiasts.
