Alan Bedwell (Foundwell) on Cartier, clocks and why connoisseurship matters OT: The Podcast

    • Design

Today’s guest is Alan Bedwell, the antiques expert behind cool curio site Foundwell. We chat to Alan about what it’s like growing up in an antique-dealing family and how he ended up looking after Ralph Lauren’s antiques, including dog paraphernalia, of all things.
From there, Foundwell was formed through a stint at Bergdorf Goodman, and Alan was off to the races. We find out how the scene has changed over the years (hint, cufflinks aren’t cool right now), as well as his thoughts on why the watch market is white-hot.
We also stray into watch-adjacent territory, talking about why clocks, even those from makers like Cartier and Jaeger-LeCoultre, are under-rated. Before Alan joined the chat, Andy and Felix found the time to talk luxury toaster smartphones, retro-futuristic cars and why Nomos nails watch accessories.
This episode is brought to you by NOMOS Glashütte. Today we talk accessories and extras perfect for Christmas. From straps to postage stamps, you can always find something fun at NOMOS.
