28: Episode 28: Buying and selling pre-owned watches online THE BITE by Esquire Singapore

    • Society & Culture

Take a bite: Want to buy a pre-owned watch but don't know where to start? For episode 28 of The Bite podcast, we speak to Glenn Meijer, Customer Experience Manager of leading online timepiece reseller Watchbox (https://www.thewatchbox.com/sg/en/home) , about the ins and outs of buying and selling luxury watches online.
Editor-in-Chief of Esquire Singapore Norman Tan is joined by two new guest co-hosts—Celine Yap, Esquire's watch editor, and Matt Benfell, personal trainer and host of an upcoming Esquire fitness series—to discuss all things pre-owned watches: Which luxury brands are a good investment? Which watches are currently under the radar? And how do you know you're getting a good deal? 
In the November 'Believe in Something' issue of Esquire Singapore (http://www.esquiresg.com/subscribe/) four different religious leaders from four different faiths in Singapore were asked to contribute, in their own words, why they believe what they believe in. At the end of the podcast, Norman reads out passages from each of these four different religious leaders and gets the podcast guests to guess which phrase belongs to which religion. Can you guess the correct answer?

58:27—"Last call of the day"
In the last segment of the session, the podcasters try to guess which passages read out by Norman from the November 'Believe in Something' issue of Esquire Singapore belong to which religion: Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism or Humanism?
