In this episode of aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick, Ariel, and David sit down to discuss some of the latest news stories and noteworthy new releases from this week in the world of watches. The trio kicks off the show with a quick discussion about receiving watches in the mail that you completely forgot that you purchased, along with a brief chat about the longest amount of time that any of them have had to wait in order to receive a watch, and how they cope with that anticipation. From there, the conversation then pivots to Hublot and the brand’s rather obvious yet unconventional decision to sponsor the world of soccer, followed by a deep dive into whether or not all watches should be available in multiple different case sizes, so that we can finally put an end to the whole “best watch size” debate.
To kick off the discussion about this week’s new releases, the group first talks about the new Shinola and Lincoln Runwell models within the greater context of watch and car collaboration pieces, while Ariel briefly provides some context for the Lincoln brand itself to two Europeans who aren’t quite as familiar with this decidedly American automotive manufacturer. Following the conversation about cars and watches, the show breaks for a surprise interview with this week’s mystery guest, Richard Benc from Studio Underd0g. After getting to hear the latest updates directly from Richard himself, we then get to hear our trio of hosts’ thoughts on the latest new release from his brand, which is a mechanical chronograph that draws its aesthetic inspiration from strawberries and cream (yes, the dessert dish). Continuing on with this week’s new watches, our hosts discuss the new Mach 1 Synchro from Bangalore Watch Company that celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the “Suryakiran” Indian Air Force formation aerobatics team, along with the latest limited edition NASA x G-Shock collaboration and heads up about a brand new place in Los Angeles where you can find some of G-Shock’s premium models.
