    Episode 32 - The Aesthetic Revolution (Will Be Beautiful)

    What started as a cute aphorism has grown into a socio-economic theory. Allen works his way through the assumptions that make up this theory, drawing on personal memory, Marxist and Anarchist failures, Pan-Indigenous Environmentalism, and, of course, horological love. The goal? Nothing short of transforming Late Capitalism through our built-in human love of Beauty.

    Episode 29 - An Ode to The Future of Refinished Dials

    Why do watch aficionados hate on refinished dials so vehemently?  How can these otherwise astute folks miss the incredible artistry involved in refinishing dials, and the layered narratives (or mysteries!) that so often accompany a refinished dial. Allen takes listeners into the future, when the refinished dials of the 20th Century become museum pieces in their own right, and he examines why it is refinished dials tend to degrade a watch both socially and in monetary value today.
