After John’s absence from the Hourtime Show’s last episode, things are back to normal as Ariel and John converse about a wide array of topics including the recent – and sensitive – key issues facing the watch industry, new and unique offerings by two high value-brands, as well as Ariel’s obsession over properly sized watch hands.
In the HourTime Show Watch Podcast Episode 160, they discuss Christopher Ward’s C9 Harrison 5-Day Automatic and its poor crystal design, the Oris Big Crown ProPilot Altimeter Watch which Ariel recently tested on a fighter plane in the air with Oris, and last but not least, the complex and important topic of Explaining What’s Wrong With The Watch Industry In 2014.
It is with good reason that improperly sized hands have long been been criticized at the HourTime Show and, as you will hear, there always are good and bad examples to follow – and to forget. As the discussion unfolds, the guys talk about how the same can be said about brands’ choices for manufacture or sourced movements… Which ultimately leads to the bigger picture, as they debate what’s wrong with the industry and what can be done about it.
