    Episode 20: Daniel Sum & Lung Lung Thun

    In this episode we sit down with Daniel Sum, one of the founders of the famous Shanghai Watch Gang, to discuss how this group of collectors came about, how different Asian collectors are compared to their western counterparts, and if watch brands have the right approach to connect with them.

    We also touch on the Shanghai Watch Festival and we bring back our previous guest Lung Lung Thun to talk about The Waiting List Podcast, which the pair recently launched along with their friend Alex.

    Episode 19: Lung Lung Thun

    Episode 19: Lung Lung Thun

    Our guest on this episode of the Revolution Watch Podcast is Lung Lung Thun. It’s taken us 18 episodes but we finally have a female watch collector as a guest on our podcast. We couldn’t have picked a better person than Lung Lung Thun, who from the very first minute we met, had shown great enthusiasm for not just the watches, but for bringing her watch knowledge to the wider audience and encouraging more women to share their passion too.

    We had a little more fun than usual on this episode by going through a list of what we look for when getting a watch. How do we feel about manual wind and self-winding? Do we like quartz? Tune in now to find out.

    Also, a lot has happened since our last episode, Covid-19 disrupted lives everywhere and the doomed Baselworld saga is still being written. We won’t go on about it here, but click the link below to read all the coverage we have so far on the Baselworld Debacle.

    Episode 18: Horoloupe

    Episode 18: Horoloupe

    Our guest on this episode of the Revolution Watch Podcast is none other than Austen Chu, a young but prominent collector, known by many of us as @horoloupe on Instagram, and a familiar face amongst our pages.

    When we sat down with Austen just before Christmas, we were only keen to learn more about his collecting habits, how he has helped grow the community of watch collectors through his social media accounts, and the burgeoning role collectors today have in bringing their dream watches to life as unique pieces. He also shared a little about a passion project he's working on — designing a new line of accessories and jewellery called Seraph.

    What we didn't know then, was that Austen was secretly working away with Audemars Piguet not to create a unique piece like most collectors do, but to create a limited edition series of watches exclusively for the Chinese market. An incredible milestone to say the least!

    The news is out now of course, and Austen was kind enough to share some of his thoughts on the process.

CAN’T HEAR!

The volume is horrible. They record at way too low a volume so even turned all the way up you can barely hear them.
