This week on the aBlogtoWatch Weekly podcast, Ariel, Rick, and David keep it simple with no guests but no less lively discussion than you’re used to! They kick things off by looking ahead to Watches and Wonders 2023, with predictions for some of the biggest brands and a discussion of how brands decided what to release and when. The gang muses about the comeback of the dress watch and then gets into the bevy of new releases that have been launched in the past week, including a shedload of Audemars Piguets. There’s an inevitable discussion of the merit of the Code 11.59 and a question of AP’s brand value and how it will manage potentially having two flagship models. Plus, there’s a very special visit from Amir at CODE41 and some wondering about how much longer we’ll have to tolerate rainbow watches! Listen below or on the player of your choice.
