    Mark Cho (The Armoury) on selling his watch collection

    Mark Cho (The Armoury) on selling his watch collection

    So much of the discussion in the watch space is around the acquisition of new watches. Yet the other untold side of the story is that for every watch bought, another is sold. Mark Cho (The Armoury) is balancing the scales. He’s selling off the bulk of his collection to fund the expansion of his business, The Armoury, and he’s doing it through Phillips. 
    Rather than anonymously consign his watches, Mark has made a custom site – called The Beauty in Everything –  showcasing the watches and some of the stories behind them. Even if you’re not in the market for a new watch, it’s well worth having a look at Mark’s significant and very tasteful collection.
    None of Mark Cho’s watches came on Artem straps. Don’t make the same mistake. Buy one here.

Of course, many people will know Traina from his phenomenally popular newsletter Rescapement. We chat to Tony about what it's like to leave a stable career in law for the world of watches, championing weird watches and whether or not Franck Muller is on the cusp of cool (again).

    John Buckley on Rolex dials, watch deals and cracking TikTok

    John Buckley on Rolex dials, watch deals and cracking TikTok

    Today’s guest, John Buckley, casts a long shadow over the world of vintage Rolex. He's a veteran of the New York watch scene who has seen trends come and hype go, which makes the fact that he’s TikTok famous somewhat surprising. Buckley’s TikTok’s follow him on his visits to the dealers of 47th street and gives you a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes wheeling and dealing of watches far removed from the white glove service of the boutique environment.
    Gem-set Daytonas sit in plastic pouches, waiting to be plucked out by John, who will inevitably ask, “how much is this $60,000 watch.” We find out what John thinks about the watch market's state, why he’s on TikTok and why a reality watch TV show might be coming to a streaming service near you.
    This episode is sponsored by G-Shock Australia. This week, in our retrospective exploration of the iconic model, we discuss the watch in the 2000s. Eminem, Bieber and all the other cool kids wear them. Stay tuned for more on the future of the digital icon, and discover more at G-Shock Australia.
    Artem straps! They’re great. Find out about them here.

    Kristen Shirley on demystifying watches plus Rolex goes titanium

    Kristen Shirley on demystifying watches plus Rolex goes titanium

    Today we chat with veteran luxury and lifestyle journalist Kristen Shirley, the founder of La Patiala. Kristen’s journey into watches starts the best way possible — Baselworld. After a crash course in the fundamentals of fine watchmaking, Shirley was hooked, and eventually developed The Watch Encyclopaedia section of her site. We also chat to Kristen about American taste in watches and how the industry is evolving to incorporate more diverse perspectives. Before that, Felix and Andy weigh in on the brand new (and very big) Deepsea Challenge, and why Kenny Rogers’ Zodiac is an unsung piece of horological history.
    This episode is sponsored by G-Shock Australia, and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this icon, we’re talking about the origin of the watch, and how it evolved over the decade. Stay tuned for more on the evolution of G-Shock over the years in upcoming episodes, and find out more at G-Shock Australia.

    Chris Hall (The Fourth Wheel) on chiming Omegas, integrated Bremonts and Newsletters

    Chris Hall (The Fourth Wheel) on chiming Omegas, integrated Bremonts and Newsletters

    We enjoyed our chat with Chris Hall so much that we just had to have him back, and we did! Chris chats to us about his exceptionally good Substack, The Fourth Wheel, which provides him with an avenue to share a broader scope of stories and insights about the world of watches. And while the newsletter is great, we thought we’d get his patented ‘Fourth Wheel’ take on some of the latest releases — including Omega’s surprising pair of chiming watches, as well as Chris’ hands-on thoughts about the Bremont Supernova (and what it means for the future of the brand), and why TAG Heuer’s confidence is paying off (hello Mario!)

Amazing Hosts with Inside Knowledge

Andy and Felix bring such a dynamic to this podcast that any watch lover would genuinely appreciate. They work so well off of each other, and you can tell they are not only in tune with their guests, but with each other overall. I never deemed myself as a watch connoisseur, but an avid watch enthusiast. This podcast makes me want to learn more on the ins and outs of watches. I also love hearing the stories behind a watch collection! Keep up the great work, gents!
