Twice weekly, aBlogtoWatch brings you two incredible podcasts for horology lovers. Every Monday, we have the Superlative Podcast, hosted by Ariel Adams as he talks with the people behind the brands and watches you love, and every Friday, we have aBlogtoWatch Weekly with Ariel and Rick as they talk about exciting news in the watch industry. Both shows are available on all major podcast platforms, and we would love to see you subscribe, rate, and review the shows if you enjoy listening!
This week, our host Ariel Adams is joined by Jess Chow, co-founder and CEO of Vieren Watches. Ariel talks with Jess about being a watch enthusiast first, then entrepreneur, as well as who she envisions wearing her watches, and how watchmaking manifests in her family. The two talk about some of the Vieren pieces Ariel has in front of him and how this collection is inspired by Modernist architecture. The conversation really dives into the designs behind the watches as they discuss their core looks at the moment, how Creative Director Sunny Fong won Project Runway Canada years ago, and what he means to the brand. Wrapping things up, Ariel asks our guest where she gets her entrepreneurial courage, and the two talk about what they see happening in the near future in the industry.
As Ariel is in Europe, he brings news from Louis Vuitton, and the two have lots to talk about when it comes to Omega.
