    John Warren on relaunching the historic Cornell Watch Company

    John Warren on relaunching the historic Cornell Watch Company

    Cornell Watch Company is an old name but a new brand. Chicago native John Warren has long had a fascination with the historic American brand founded in his home city. Most people would be content with collecting old pocket watches and letting history stay in the past, but Warren isn’t most people. He’s taken the steps to revive the defunct brand and, with the help of American watchmaking legend Roland Murphy of RGM, bring it into the 21st century. We chat with Warren about the ins and outs of bringing an old brand back, why he thinks American watchmaking is important, and why his debut model, the 1870 CE, is special.

    Phil Toledano on his debut watch, brutalist design and Audemars Piguet

    Phil Toledano on his debut watch, brutalist design and Audemars Piguet

    Fresh from the flash sale of his debut watch, we chat with Phil Toledano, one-half of Toledano & Chan, and a man who’s gone from watch enthusiast to professional over the last few years. Phil talks about the hope and fears he had developing the B1, and how it feels to be memefied alongside Audemars Piguet (who happened to release the inspired-by-brutalism Remaster02 recently. Andy also gives Phil some handy business advice, and we get some old-school video game recs. You don’t miss this slightly off-the-rails chat with the one and only Mister Enthusiast.
    Phil Toledano is still not in our Discord. Don’t be like Phil.

    Only Watch 2024, Richemont’s new CEO and more news

    Only Watch 2024, Richemont’s new CEO and more news

    This week we talk about the 10th edition of the Only Watch charity auction, originally shcedule for 2023, but after drama and allegations of fiscal impropriety plagued the auction, it was delayed until the other week. Sadly, problems of a whole other nature marred its return, courtesy of some security issues with Christie’s online platform taking online voting off the table. Still, they managed to raise a tidy 28.3 million CHF, thanks largely to Patek Philippe. We chat about some of the high (and low) lights of the auction, as well as its place in the industry, On top of that, Van Cleef & Arpels CEO Nicolas Bos has been appointed Richemont group CEO, and we make a strong case for the fact that the only watch you truly need is a quartz Seiko.
    There’s only watches in our Discord.

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!
