This week on the aBlogtoWatch Weekly podcast, Ariel, Rick, and David are joined by Pete McConvill of the eponymous YouTube channel! Things start out with Ariel seeming to have broken his own rules and made a list; he’s quick to reframe the situation as a simple collection of thoughts, not to the exclusion of other thoughts. The conversation touches on why the current market favors wild colors, the merits of reporting movement accuracy, and superfluous complications (plus David discusses samples that have broken during the review process—yikes!). The group discusses whether Rolex was in the right threatening legal action against a tiny British company making a clock for kids and how two very different brands are making very large amounts of money. On the flip side, a discussion of brands who aren’t spending money on themselves with unsurprisingly mediocre results. Listen below or on the player of your choice.
