HourTime Show Watch Podcast Episode 138   Ugly Smart Watch, Fun Making Watches   look inside manufacture hourtime show

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.

We answer the age-old question: Who spends the most time laughing about watches and the watch industry?  It may not be who you think.

You over ran big-time on this episode.  Hope it's not too long 'til the next episode.  Possible suggestion for future discussion (since it caused some heated debate in an earlier post) - the effect country of origin has on the perception of a watch.  I'm pretty sure millions of dollars could be made or lost based on how much the customer is willing to part with based on how they view a brand.
