This week on the Superlative Podcast, host and aBlogtoWatch Founder Ariel Adams is joined by Giovanni Prigigallo, the Co-Founder and Head of Business Development and Content at EveryWatch. To start the show, Ariel asks Giovanni about when his interest in watches started and what made him start a business in the watch industry. Giovanni discusses how he works with venture capitalists and what it is like talking about watches with a group of investment-minded professionals. They discuss the impact that celebrities wearing certain watches have on the value of those timepieces, and how some consumers are heavily influenced to simply buy that specific piece as opposed to it opening the doors to a new hobby for them. Ariel brings up auction houses and brands that refuse to publish their pricing, and how that affects the industry of selling and reselling as a whole. When discussing EveryWatch, Giovanni explains why they are extremely data-driven and how they provide comprehensive data and notification services that include historical, current, and upcoming data from auctions, dealers, and marketplaces globally. They dive into not only what makes them different with their business model, but also how they acquire the data they do, and how that affects auctions. Listen below or on the player of your choice.
