In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick and Ariel sit down to talk about some of the latest news stories and releases from the world of watches. The duo kicks off the show by talking about how Ariel severely needs an assistant before briefly touching on whether or not the GPHG awards actually mean anything and whether or not Tudor is pushing the boundaries enough with its watch designs given the recent release of the Ranger. From there, the pair dive into talking about Rolex’s brand-new factory, its plans to increase production by 30%, and whether or not this actually means that people will finally start being able to buy the watches that they want from authorized retailers and boutiques.
While there is no surprise guest on this week’s episode, there are plenty of new reviews and watch releases, and Rick and Ariel lead off the roundup by talking about the Formex Reef GMT and Ariel’s hands-on review of the Raymond Weil Freelancer Chronograph 7780 within the context of the new model the brand will be designing in collaboration with the aBlogtoWatch community, which will be drawing its main inspiration from 1980s new-wave synth music. The duo also discusses the new Bamford x G-Shock collaboration and the time when Ariel got a chance to see the MB&F Horological Machine 9 Sapphire Vision HM9-SV, along with the new Zodiac Super Sea Wolf “Whitecap” and how the herd mentality of the collecting community can impact the discussions that surround various watches and their respective manufacturers.
