    Eric Ku and Justin Gruenberg (Loupe This)

    Eric Ku and Justin Gruenberg (Loupe This)

    Today on the podcast I'm thrilled to have two legendary collectors and dealers join me, Eric Ku and Justin Gruenberg.
    Of course, Eric is no stranger to Hodinkee, having appeared on the site, Talking Watches, and this podcast. He got his start as a vintage watch dealer, soon founding 10Past10 back in 2005. Most recently, he co-founded the online auction site Loupe This in 2021. He's since become known for his expertise in Rolex, Cartier, and pretty much all things vintage.
    Eric's Loupe This co-founder is today's other guest, Justin Gruenberg. Justin is a second-generation watch and jewelry dealer from L.A., and since joining the family business he also founded the vintage dealer The Keystone. Justin is widely admired for his wide tastes that run the gamut from vitntage to modern, sport to dress, and everything in between.
    Both of these guys have a keen eye, great taste, and extensive about watches. In today's episode, we discuss the most recent auctions and the market more broadly, what dealers and auctions can do better, and git into the nitty-gritty with vintage Patek, Rolex, and Cartier. We also have a little fun – I get both of the guys to tell me what watch they'd love to snag from the other's collection.
    Thanks as always for listening, and make sure to hit the show notes to follow along with some of the watches we discuss.

    Q&A – Cartier, TAG Heuer x KITH Formula 1, Auctions, And More

    Q&A – Cartier, TAG Heuer x KITH Formula 1, Auctions, And More

    In today's episode, I tapped our style editor Malaika Crawford, client advisor Rich Fordon, and video producer Jonathan McWhorter on for a Q&A. Some of the questions we take on:
    What other brands should release a Cartier Privé-style collection that taps into its heritage, and which brands should not;
    Our thoughts on the TAG Heuer x KITH Formula 1;
    Whether brands and stylists have ruined watch spotting at red carpet events like the Met Gala;
    Finally, Since Rich was on his way to Geneva for the spring auctions, we talk about how to navigate the sometimes scary world of auctions.
    Before we get to the Q&A, we also touched on our 21st Century Fantasy Draft from a few weeks ago. We announce the winner, and then Rich and Malaika tell us about all the amazing watches from the past 24 years we should've included.

    Hodinkee Radio: Watches & Wonders 2024 | Day 4: The Editors Debrief After The Week In Geneva

    It’s our last day at Watches & Wonders in Geneva, so we’re recapping everything we saw. We talk about the best watches we saw all week, the best watches under $10,000, drop some of our spiciest takes, and then all of us – all seven of us – pick one watch we saw that we’d purchase, money no object.

    Hodinkee Radio: Watches & Wonders 2024 | Day 3: Hermès, Oris, Chopard, and Parmigiani Fleurier

    Hodinkee Radio: Watches & Wonders 2024 | Day 3: Hermès, Oris, Chopard, and Parmigiani Fleurier

    Three days into the show and we’re all a bit slap happy and talking about some of our favorite novelties from Hermès, Cartier, Oris, Chopard, and Parmigiani. We also talk a bit about the general mood of the show, which we’ll discuss more on our final show tomorrow. But first, we talk about: Hermès’ new ladies’ watch and whether it’s actually a ladies’ watch; Oris’ new Aquis and why the lack of any mega releases might actually be the best thing for the Swiss watch industry; and we finish with dress watches from Chopard and Parmigiani Fleurier’s update of the Toric collection.

New Format

I just got into watches about 6 months ago, and eventually found Hondinkee’s content. I didn’t listen to the “old” podcast format (so I can’t comment on that), but really dig the new format, and glad to see it’ll be a weekly podcast. The “what’s on your wrist” and “collecting advice” are good standard discussion points—looking forward to hearing those in future episodes.

Great podcast but Malaika is insufferable

Would give 5 stars to any episode that does not include Malaika.

Out of touch?

It feels like the podcast and publication has lost touch. What was once enthusiast focused, has crossed over to something else. The production quality is good as ever, but the content is not for everyone.
