John goes out of his way to embarrass Ariel – he needs a girlfriend from the Ukraine. More on SIHH – we talk about Richard Mille RM 056 Sapphire crystal-cased watch (1,000 hours to machine each case) how much it costs, and how a slew of virgins must somehow be involved in that kind of pricing. More from the show and the completely unnecessary pain and loneliness that the watch industry and conventions in Switzerland can inflict. We also talk about more reasonable watches like new stuff from Hamilton (a slide-rule complication that’s useful – John disagrees) – X-Patrol!
New version of the Konstantin Chaykin Lunokhod is a topic – Ariel thinks it’s better than the one he wrote about earlier.
An awkwardly-placed ad/event announcement appears in the middle of the show. John insists that James Bond is not a real person, and the Zombie Apocalypse preparation begins.
