'Collecting for Tomorrow': Ariel Adams Of aBlogtoWatch Hosting Own Watch Show On Auctionata Sales & Auctions

Have you ever seen or even heard of a television show about watches that you found interesting? No? Well, this is about to change. Together with the online auction platform Auctionata, Ariel Adams from aBlogtoWatch has developed the first talk show about watches that is 100% live, authentic, and fun.

In the live talk show called Collecting For Tomorrow, founder and editor-in-chief of aBlogtoWatch Ariel Adams and his guests will discuss collectible modern watches, talk about timepiece appreciation, and present a selection of watches they find interesting. Unlike the boring lectures your average watch expert would give, Ariel and his guests will engage in lively conversations and discuss topics that are relevant even for viewers outside of the watch-collector premier league. As such, this show is dedicated to the community of watch enthusiasts around the world who want to get some expert advice and enjoy a good watch program at the same time.

The premiere of Collecting for Tomorrow, which you can watch online for free, will be broadcast live on Sunday, October 9, 2016, on www.auctionata.com, on the Auctionata Facebook page, as well as on the aBlogtoWatch Facebook page. In the show, Ariel will welcome special guest Dr. Sébastien Chaulmontet, Head of Innovation at Arnold & Son, Angelus, and Manufacture La Joux-Perret. They will talk about modern watches produced in the last two decades, a very interesting topic for both beginning and seasoned watch collectors. Ariel will present his personal favorites, share his expert tips on how to select collectible watches, and give advice on what to look out for. At the same time, you can bid live on the presented selection of vintage watches.

        Thanks for that.

    Some very interesting watches in the Part 1 catalogue. I’m going to have watch this in “reruns”. I assume this be posted somewhere for a download afterwards?

  • Bill W

    How did this sponsoredpost go down? Did he pay himself? 🙂

  • @ilplife

    Good luck on the event ariel! Cheers

  • Shinytoys

    best of luck, Ariel

    “Have you ever seen or even heard of a television show about watches that you found interesting? No?” Yes, I’ve heard of one. It’s called the Archie Luxury Channel, where the method actor Paul Pluta plays Archibald Chesterfield III aka The Pontiff aka AC3. Hello f#ckers!

    Now, regarding this live talk, all I want to know is this: will Aaron Sigmond and Chayton Grosvenor participate?

    • Dinkee, H. O.

      If he’s lucky he might get my unpaid intern Aaron Sigmond on there. However, I will make sure that Siggy is washing my car that day. You can be certain he won’t have a horology legend like John Mayer on this poor man’s Talking Watch rip-off.

      • Bill W

        Finkle and Einhorn. Einhorn and Finkle. Marius and Dinkee. Dinkee and Marius. That’s it! Marius IS Dinkee. Dinkee IS Marius. OH MY GODDDD!! cue: Crying Game music

      • Raymond Wilkie

        Why are you here ?

        • Dinkee, H. O.

          Why are you here?

          • Raymond Wilkie

            Don’t answer a question with a question.

    • Bill W

      No, but I think that future episodes may feature Zen “Dude” Love, David “The Hunkarian” Bredan, Richard “The Equalizer” Cantley, Kenny “MTV Raps” Yeo, Patrick “Little Rock R” Kansa, and Rob “Deez” Nudds.

      • Raymond Wilkie

        I think not.

      • Sheez Gagoo

        Five castles are to big for the size of Luxembourg. This is a coutry as big as a stamp. And I`m from Switzerland. A country you`ll not reach the fifth gear of your car without having left it.

      • But tune in late for my episode as everything runs on Island Time here (something like 3 hours and 23 minutes behind the left coast).

  • Dinkee, H. O.

    “Unlike the boring lectures your average watch expert would give, Ariel and his guests will engage in lively conversations…” Sorry to burst your bubble, but yours truly already has this covered with the greatest of collectors and sports and music legends. That’s John freaking Mayer in that picture below, pal. He had IWC actually respond to an open letter on Hodinkee! How can you hope to compete with this? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d2e2ee8d7d0759795057b6cf3a45ba40e849d5814d265b8029a2c5cad7353b71.jpg

    • Marius

      My distinguished colleague,

      Another aspect worth mentioning is that Hodinkee only works with the best auction houses in the world, such as Christie’s, Sotheby’s and the God Of Auctions Himself — Aurel Bacs. Now, I have never heard of Actionata before, but judging from the pathetic watches they sell, I can understand why. Where is the Patek 2499, the FP Journe T90 Tourbillon, the steel Lange 1, the Rolex Killy, the Lange Zeitwerk Handwerkskunst, etcetera, etcetera. I would describe Actionata as low rent.

      • Dinkee, H. O.

        An excellent point!

    • Raymond Wilkie

      John who ?

      • Bill W

        Thayer. No, sorry. Meyer.

  • Bill W

    Can you call it a television show if it’s not on television? Or will it be filmed with TV cameras? Regardless, good luck to the production.

    • True, to be fair the show will be produced in TV quality though, after all have 4 HD cameras and a producer team. The show will be available online, so the whole world can tune in.

      • Bill W

        Best of luck with the show and the auction(s).

  • cluedog12

    Auctionata has occasional diamonds in the rough, but nothing special in these two auctions. Euros means there won’t be any great deals either.

  • Benjamin Ramos

    Pay no attention to the nayesayers, good luck!!! I will be tuning in, unless it is too boring, then I will be tuning out.

  • Raymond Wilkie

    Some of you folks are just so disrespectful .

  • laup nomis

    Save me cocking it up, when is it on in old English money/ what time do I need to log into whatever that website is? Anyone?

    • Hello there, for UK time, start tuning in at 5 pm on http://www.auctionata.com or Auctionatas Facebook page.
      The show can be watched without any registration, but if you want to bid, you will have to set up an user account. Hope that helps – and enjoy!

      • laup nomis

        Thank you:)

    Eberhard Contograph is so gorgeous.

    • Bill W

      There’s a pretty sweet tritium Air-King in there too.

      • ??????

        I don’t recommend old watches with tritium: you’ll be dissapointed with their glow. “Being an unstable isotope with a half-life of 12.32 years, tritium loses half its brightness in that period”. And Rolly is almost 26 years old = it has only 23.62% of its initial brightness.

        • Bill W

          I know. I just like the little differences. It’s not always logical.
