After two days inside Rolex, we have no choice but to share our experience with you. Rolex doesn’t allow photography so we tried to express the tale from within using our own words. John, unfortunately, was not there, but I am joined by Rolex historian and expert Jake Ehrlich from Rolexmagazine.com who was. If you are interested in Rolex in any way this is a must listen…

Live from Switzerland, the show returns to discuss John’s new mistress named Eleven James (she makes house calls) and what is brewing over at TAG Heuer and what is up with their new Calibre 1969 movement. We also discuss Panerai, and where we’ve been all your lives…
John gets unusually excited about Bathys’ Atomic Cesium 133 watch (and we reminisce about a night with the brand’s founder in Vegas), and I get even more excited about the upcoming LEGO watches for adults (that we debuted and went pretty viral all over the net). Last, we one again discuss the major winners and sore losers of the Only Watch 2013 auction.
John learns to find love in a smartwatch – which one is it? We discuss the real future of the smartwatch industry and what watch lovers need to know about it. We discuss the love child of MB&F and Urwerk that is C3H5N3O9 and discuss “experimental” watch brands. Lastly, we talk about Spero Lucem…
Interview special episode. Live from the 2013 Hong Kong Watch & Clock Fair, I speak with the interesting and charismatic Vishal Tolani (from Solar Time Ltd.), who answers questions about Chinese watch production, why people in Hong Kong love watches, and other tid bits of interesting information about the Asian watch market.
Are you curious about the Hyetis Crossbow smartwatch that ideally should make its Swiss way on wrists by the end of the year? So are we, and we delve right into it. We also discuss Mondaine’s new automatic and Ulysse Nardin’s new Freak watch models.
John discusses a Girard-Perregaux Chrono Hawk watch he is reviewing and I discuss a Blancpain Fifty Fathoms that I am reviewing. Which is the better watch? Then we proceed to get into the dirty details of smartwatches and the potential failings of Bluetooth. Of course Casio is about to come out with new Bluetooth watches that may just have us eating our words.
This latest episode of HourTime was recorded as a series of interviews and conversations that occurred while at the aBlogtoWatch event with Girard-Perregaux in New York City. You’ll hear from John, Ariel, and fellow readers.
Live from New York it’s the Hour Time Show! John and I hang out and discuss Tudor’s return to the us and the aBlogtoWatch review of the Heritage Chrono Blue. We also talk again about smartwatches, and the Eone Bradley watch for the blind.
The HourTime Show watch podcast is back after some pause and John and I discuss smartwatches with the Sony Smartwatch 2, the Chinese/Swiss free-trade agreement that will heavily impact the watch industry as well as the aBlogtoWatch + Girard-Perregaux event on July 25th, 2013 in New York City.
John is in Iceland but we still manage to stay warm with watches. We discuss the innovating yet perhaps futile Urwerk EMC movement, and the easily lovable Seiko Prospex Tuna with the Spring Drive movement. We also cover Montegrappa’s new Chaos watch (you’ll either hate it or love it), and the nice looking new Hamilton Khaki Pilot Pioneer Auto Chrono.
Can someone explain to us why most smart watches are so terribly ugly? “Connected” electronic watch makers can sure learn something from the Swiss watch industry. We also discuss the aBlogtoWatch trip to Frederique Constant to build timepieces, and what it means to have emotion for mechanical watches.
Post Baselworld 2013, John and I take a closer look at the new offerings from Rolex and Tudor, as well as some interesting items from TAG Heuer such as the MikopendulumS watch that once again brings magnets (successfully) to a timepiece.
After Baselworld 2013 day 1 James, Mark, and myself sit around the kitchen table at the Basel apartment to recap on the day and discuss Rolex, Patek, and more from home base at watchpocalypse 2013.
A slew of cool watches are on the discussion plate. We investigate the Christophe Claret Kantharos, Zenith Pilot Annual Calendar, Ressence Type 3, and Swatch’s Swiss exclusive d’Schwizer watch (that is meant to be funny).
We just can’t stop talking about Cholex. In this episode we talk about what a “robot turd” watch really is, and how ambitious modern-designs mix with luxury well (and not so well).
