For rod builder (and watch tinkerer) Matt Leiderman, he has a website but most of his communication is through Instagram. He lost access to his Facebook page but things still pop up there sometimes.
Overnight, he posted a stunning image of a recent Ijuin Rods Sakura build with a short update and an invitation to get on his fall build list. If you have a high end build in mind, few do it as noteworthy as Leiderman.
"I’ve been MIA from this account lately but still have managed to get some rods out the door over the last few months… I’ve been doing lots of watch work but starting to get some blanks lined up for fall builds. If you reached out and are still interested in talking about a build please send me a note.
In the meantime here’s a Sakura that was requested to be a “springtime in Japan” theme… love the colors."
Visit the Leiderman Rods website and reach out to get on his build list. Follow along with the latest shop news or watch projects on Instagram on the Leiderman Rods and Mecha Horology pages.
P.S. If you'd like to see more of Matt's watch work, he chronicled a refresh of an Orvis badged Hamilton Field Watch in this T.F.M. post earlier this year.
