Rolex Factory In Meltdown? Ferrari And Gucci Step In To Help? Does ClickBait Work? The Cheapest Diamond Watch Ever And Does Cartier Have A Plot To Take Everyone’s Money, With Andrew From WatchFinder
In this episode ofaBlogtoWatch Weekly, Ariel is away attending to other business, so Rick and David are joined by guest host Andrew — a.k.a. “The Man With The Hands” from Watchfinder & Co. to talk about the latest news and reviews from this week in the world of watches. To start the show, a quick message from Jake, the aBlogtoWatch Social Media & Community Manager, sets off a discussion about how the ever-changing algorithms are forcing everyone to use “Rolex” in YouTube titles as clickbait, which spirals into a conversation about the psychology behind clickbait itself and how the way we consume video content has changed over the years. To properly measure the effects of clickbait, the trio decides to conduct an experiment using two different titles for this podcast episode, and given how discussing clickbait-worthy topics seems to come naturally to Andrew, you can have fun guessing about which version you're actually seeing. From there, the conversation gets into Rolex and how the brand became the world’s most famous watchmaker, along with why Andrew thinks Porsche is the car company most like Rolex (see, we told you he naturally talks about clickbait-worthy topics). After discussing the homogenization of people’s preferences in regards to watch collecting, the trio gets into a discussion about affordable GMT watches, the cheapest diamond-set watch available, and the least expensive timepieces in everyone’s collections that receive wear on a regular basis. Finishing up the discussion of new releases and reviews is a conversation about whether or not the removable grill on the latest Cartier Pasha is just a plot to make more money on replacements when customers inevitably lose theirs, followed by a brief discussion about the new Seiko Speedtimer and the brand’s obsession with difficult naming conventions. Lastly, rounding out the show is a brief look forward and what we can expect from both Andrew and Watchfinder & Co. in the near future. 34:34 Actually Affordable: Bottom-Dollar GMT Watches | aBlogtoWatch 42:34 Hands-On: Cartier Pasha With Removable Grille Watch | aBlogtoWatch 49:34 Seiko Debuts The Prospex Speedtimer Chronograph SRQ043 Watch  | aBlogtoWatch aBlogtoWatch launched the first-ever podcast about watches back in 2010 and continues to be the most referenced and respected publication for watch enthusiasts, buyers, and collectors in the world.

Should Rolex Make A 38mm Submariner? New Watch Reviews From Shinola, Bangalore Watch Company, And G-Shock, Plus A Surprise Interview With Richard Benc From Studio Underd0g
In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick, Ariel, and David sit down to discuss some of the latest news stories and noteworthy new releases from this week in the world of watches. The trio kicks off the show with a quick discussion about receiving watches in the mail that you completely forgot that you purchased, along with a brief chat about the longest amount of time that any of them have had to wait in order to receive a watch, and how they cope with that anticipation. From there, the conversation then pivots to Hublot and the brand’s rather obvious yet unconventional decision to sponsor the world of soccer, followed by a deep dive into whether or not all watches should be available in multiple different case sizes, so that we can finally put an end to the whole “best watch size” debate. To kick off the discussion about this week’s new releases, the group first talks about the new Shinola and Lincoln Runwell models within the greater context of watch and car collaboration pieces, while Ariel briefly provides some context for the Lincoln brand itself to two Europeans who aren’t quite as familiar with this decidedly American automotive manufacturer. Following the conversation about cars and watches, the show breaks for a surprise interview with this week’s mystery guest, Richard Benc from Studio Underd0g. After getting to hear the latest updates directly from Richard himself, we then get to hear our trio of host’s thoughts on the latest new release from his brand, which is a mechanical chronograph that draws its aesthetic inspiration from strawberries and cream (yes, the dessert dish). Continuing on with this week’s new watches, our hosts discuss the new Mach 1 Synchro from Bangalore Watch Company that celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the “Suryakiran” Indian Air Force formation aerobatics team, along with the latest limited edition NASA x G-Shock collaboration and heads up about a brand new place in Los Angeles where you can find some of G-Shock’s premium models. 12:01 An Argument For Brands To Make The Same Watch In Multiple Sizes | aBlogtoWatch 18:37 Shinola And Lincoln Unveil Collaborative 100th Anniversary Watches | aBlogtoWatch 25:33 Studio Underd0g Unveils The Strawberries & Cream Watch | aBlogtoWatch 38:27 Bangalore Watch Company Debuts The MACH 1 Synchro To Celebrate The 25th Anniversary Of The Suryakiran Aerobatic Team | aBlogtoWatch 46:17 Final Frontier: This Limited Edition Casio G-Shock Watch Is A Can’t-Miss, Launching At Augustine In Los Angeles | aBlogtoWatch aBlogtoWatch launched the first-ever podcast about watches back in 2010 and continues to be the most referenced and respected publication for watch enthusiasts, buyers, and collectors in the world.

Is Instagram Ruining Watch Collecting? Plus New Watches and Reviews From Tag Heuer, Parmigiani Fleurier, Jaeger LeCoultre, Christopher Ward And Speake-Marin
In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick, Ariel, and David come together to talk about some of the latest new releases and trending stories from the world of watches. To kick off the show, the trio dives deep into a conversation about Instagram and the greater impact that it has had on watch collecting. The group unanimously acknowledges how it has brought a lot of people together and introduced countless new individuals to the hobby. However, given how ever-changing algorithms are continuously getting in the way of people actually seeing the content they want, the trio then attempts to answer the question as to whether or not Instagram is actually ruining watch collecting for everyone and how the online community can exist without it. After thoroughly unpacking the issues with Instagram and proposing a few alternate solutions, the conversation then shifts to some of the latest new watch releases and reviews to hit the site this past week. Up first is the Tag Heuer Carrera Red Dial Limited Edition within the context of non-traditional dial colors and the value that they offer within someone’s collection. Next is a discussion surrounding the relative value of watches such as the Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT Chronograph and the Jaeger LeCoultre Polaris Perpetual Calendar, before the trio gets into the new colorful Christopher Ward C63 Sealander watches, and whether or not the industry is now over-saturated with bright dial colors. Lastly, Ariel is still looking for someone to fill the role as his personal assistant, and rounding out this episode is a quick discussion of some of the various applications he has received since recently reposting the job listing.

Rolex To Produce 30% More Watches, Collecting With An Unlimited Budget, Plus Reviews From MB&F, Formex, Raymond Weil, G-Shock, And Zodiac
In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick and Ariel sit down to talk about some of the latest news stories and releases from the world of watches. The duo kick off the show by talking about how Ariel severely needs an assistant before briefly touching on whether or not the GPHG awards actually mean anything and whether or not Tudor is pushing the boundaries enough with its watch designs given the recent release of the Ranger. From there, the pair dives into talking about Rolex’s brand-new factory, its plans to increase production by 30%, and whether or not this actually means that people will finally start being able to buy the watches that they want from authorized retailers and boutiques. While there is no surprise guest on this week’s episode, there are plenty of new reviews and watch releases, and Rick and Ariel kick off the roundup by talking about the Formex Reef GMT and Ariel’s hands-on review of the Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph 7780 within the context of the new model the brand will be designing in collaboration with the aBlogtoWatch community, which will be drawing its main inspiration from 1980s new-wave synth music. The duo also discusses the new Bamford x G-Shock collaboration and the time when Ariel’s got a chance to see the MB&F Horological Machine 9 Sapphire Vision HM9-SV, along with the new Zodiac Super Sea Wolf “Whitecap” and how the herd mentality of the collecting community can impact the discussions that surround various watches and their respective manufacturers 20:52 Watch Review: Formex Reef GMT Automatic Chronometer 300M https://www.ablogtowatch.com/watch-review-formex-reef-gmt-automatic-chronometer-300m/ 27:10 Hands-On: Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph 7780 Watch https://www.ablogtowatch.com/hands-on-raymond-weil-freelancer-chronograph-7780-watch/ 31:30 Bamford And G-Shock Unveil The DW-6900BWD-1ER Collaboration Watch https://www.ablogtowatch.com/bamford-and-g-shock-unveil-the-dw-6900bwd-1er-collaboration-watch/ 41:40 Hands-On: MB&F Horological Machine 9 Sapphire Vision HM9-SV Watch https://www.ablogtowatch.com/hands-on-mbf-horological-machine-9-sapphire-vision-hm9-sv-watch/ 49:53 Hands-On: Zodiac Super Sea Wolf ZO9291 "Whitecap" https://www.ablogtowatch.com/hands-on-zodiac-super-sea-wolf-zo9291-whitecap/

aBlogtoWatch Weekly: Rolex vs. MoonSwatch vs. G-Shock: Which Boutique Says "No" The Most? Plus New Releases From MB&F, Maurice Lacroix, Shinola, and Tissot Featuring Guest Host George Bamford
In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Ariel, Rick, and David are joined by guest host George Bamford, founder of Bamford Watch Department. The group starts the show by talking about which boutique employees have it the hardest these days between Rolex, Swatch — and now G-Shock after rowdy crowds at George’s own Bamford x G-Shock launch caused the event to get shut down by local authorities. From there, they pivot to talking about the possible long-term implications of the MoonSwatch on the public’s perception of the Omega Speedmaster before trying to figure out if the Bioceramic used in its construction is up to the task of frequent, long-term use and if should even be called a ceramic at all. After briefly talking about the continuing equalization of prices on the secondary market, the group switches focus to discussing this week's new watch releases and latest reviews on aBlogtoWatch.com, including David’s analysis of the M.A.D. 1 RED, the new Shinola Mackinac Yacht Watch, and the Maurice Lacroix Aikon #tide Benzilla within the greater context of artist collaboration pieces. In addition to discussing how the 35mm Tissot PRX stacks up to its full-size sibling, the question comes up whether or not there needs to be an HBO television drama about the colorful personalities of the watch industry before the group rounds out the show by trying to come to a consensus about which luxury watch brand name makes the best replacement to shout out instead of a swear word.

aBlogtoWatch Weekly: Has Tudor Officially Become A Rolex Homage Brand? And Reviews From Richard Mille, IWC, And anOrdain
aBlogtoWatch Weekly: The Scariest Watch Ariel Has Ever Seen, A Record-Breaking Richard Mille, And Has Tudor Officially Become A Rolex Homage Brand? In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Ariel, Rick, and David sit down to talk about some of the most noteworthy new releases and trending stories from the greater world of watches. The trio starts the show by talking about a timepiece that has surfaced from a dark corner of history that Ariel describes as the scariest watch he has ever seen, before moving on to collectively speculating about the future of watch prices and retail availability. Rick asks the question of whether or not consumer trends may shift to the point where people are consolidating their collections and only buying grail pieces before the conversation ultimately shifts towards trying to hash out what actually classifies an individual as a watch enthusiast. While there is no surprise guest on this week’s show, there are plenty of new releases to discuss, and Rick, Ariel, and David kick off the new watch roundup by talking about how the Richard Mille RM UP-01 Ferrari recently claimed the record for the world’s thinnest watch before getting into how anOrdain can keep up with demand for its small-batch enamel dials and whether or not the novelty of having a white ceramic watch like the new IWC “Lake Tahoe” will eventually wear off after several years of ownership. Lastly, no conversation of new releases from this past week would be complete without discussing the new Tudor Ranger, and the trio addresses the question of whether or not the new watch is actually worth all the excitement, and whether or not Tudor has officially become a Rolex homage brand.

aBlogtoWatch Weekly: Rolex Bubble Finally Bursting? And Reviews From Breitling, Oris, Timex, Girard-Perregaux, Hermes And Guest Host Rob From WatchPro
aBlogtoWatch Weekly: New Releases, Rob Corder From Watchpro, And Are Rolex Watches Becoming Available Again? On this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick and David sit down with Rob Corder, Co-Founder and Managing Editor at Watchpro. As a publication that could best be described as the Wall Street Journal or Financial Times of the watch industry, Watchpro is known for its unique business-oriented perspective on the world of watches. Rob offers his insights on everything from whether or not we are actually seeing an increase in the global supply of Rolex watches, to the greater state of the watch industry as a whole, and which brands are most likely to be impacted by changes in the supply of ‘unicorn models’ that have historically been unavailable at a retail level. In addition to talking about their predictions regarding the future supply of Rolex watches and how liquidity differs between luxury timepieces and the stock market, the trio also go over some of the latest new watch releases that span everything from five-figure statement pieces like the pink gold Girard-Perregaux Laureato and the Hermès Arceau Le Temps Voyageur to budget-friendly collaboration watches such as the James Brand x Timex Expedition North White and the Oris Aquis New York Harbor Limited Edition. Additionally, with the release of the new colorful time-only Breitling Superocean models that were unveiled earlier this week, Rick admits that he prefers watches with date displays, while David suggests that Rick’s preference may be simply due to the fact that he doesn’t spend enough time lounging at beach-side bars.

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.
