aBlogtoWatch Weekly: Featuring Zodiac, NORQAIN, Bamford, Girard-Perregaux, Ressence, Ulysse Nardin, Tissot and a Mystery Guest
aBlogtoWatch Weekly: Questions from the Community, A Recap of New Releases, and Yohann Martinez from Art In Time Monaco In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick, Ariel, and David sit down to field some questions from the aBlogtoWatch community and discuss their thoughts on the latest new releases from the world of watches. Questions cover everything from an existential crisis resulting from realizing that your watch has too much branding to favorite summer drinks and an IWC watchmaker’s practical uses for a chronograph. Additionally, there have been a number of new releases this week, and the aBlogtoWatch crew offers their initial thoughts on everything from automotive-inspired collaboration pieces like the Michelin x Bamford and Girard-Perregaux x Aston Martin F1 models to whether the Ulysse Nardin Diver X Skeleton or the Ressence Type 5 AIT is the better high-tech black and yellow dive watch. This week’s mystery guest is Yohann Martinez, the Director of Art In Time in Monaco, who briefly stops by the show to talk about the new Ressence Type 5 AIT watch that was created in collaboration with Monaco’s famous watchmaking gallery. While all eleven of the publicly available examples have already been claimed, Yohann reveals how the final one will be sold for charity and why you aren’t likely to take it home unless you are already a supporter of the Foundation Prince Albert II de Monaco. Beyond discussing their initial takes on new releases, the aBlogtoWatch trio also digs into the finer points of the fluted bezel and whether or not Rolex even cares that other brands feature this distinctive design element on their watches.

aBlogtoWatch Weekly: Featuring Controversial Collaborations, Excessive Dial Branding, Vacheron Constantin, Vertex, Citizen, Moser, Bulgari, And A Mystery Guest
In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick and Ariel discuss some of the most noteworthy articles and trending topics from this week on aBlogtoWatch.com. The duo discusses everything from what François-Henry Bennahmias might do with himself next year after he departs from Audemars Piguet, to the greater significance of collaboration watches within the context of the new recrystallized titanium Citizen Satellite GPS Watch produced with the AKUTO-R lunar expedition program and the highly-divisive H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Chronograph that was created in collaboration with the Los Angeles streetwear brand Undefeated. This week’s mystery guest is Vertex Watches Founder, Don Cochrane, who stops by the show to chat about the new Vertex M690 AquaLion dive watch. Don is the great-grandson of the brand’s original founder, who revived Vertex in 2016 with the goal of creating high-performing tool watches with a military-inspired design influence. In addition to discussing their thoughts on the latest release from Vertex, Ariel and Rick also cover the widespread practice of excessive branding as it exists throughout much of the watch industry, and briefly try to sort out which luxury watch brands might be in contention for having their names appear the most on a single watch dial.
