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 it 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 come up whether or not there needs to be 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.
