LEJON Uhren Ambassador Matt BenfieldWhere did you grow up and what are your best memories about your childhood? 

I grew up in a small town in North Carolina in the US called Catawba. There are only about 600 people living there, so it's a typical US farm town ?. Some of my best memories from childhood always include reading - I was a huge reader as a kid and still am as a young adult. I didn't have the most exciting childhood, so reading was my gateway out of that small town and into the worlds of magicians and knights.

What is it that you like most about the city you currently live in?

So, I currently live in Berlin and have been here for about three months now. The thing I like most about Berlin is how unashamedly original it is. Berliners really don't care what you have to say about them because everyone is accepted here, no matter how "weird" you might seem to others. And I really love that originality because that's the beginning of creativity and innovation, which Berlin has a ton of.

How would your best friend describe you in three words?

Ambitious, Impatient, Loving.

When did you start blogging and what was the reason of it?

I started blogging back in July of 2016, but didn't really start working on it until January. I started my website (http://everyday-pride.com) for the reason that I simply wanted to voice my opinions. I wanted a place where I could share my thoughts on everything from lifestyle topics to LGBTQ topics. Right now, my main focus is on my Instagram account (@mr.benfield) and putting out great content over there.

What do you like most about your LEJON watch and the LEJON brand?

LEJON seems to me to be a pretty unique brand when compared to other watch companies. All the time on Instagram, you see content creators working with the same watch brands and their watches really don't look original. LEJON watches are unique for me in their style, which is something I always look for in brands that I work with.

What is your favorite watch strap combination for the following occasions?

Work:
LEJON DISTRICT 1 Matte - Camel Brown Strap

Daytime/casual:

What is your quote of the day?
