    Episode 24: Quirky and Hand Finished, Like an Early Watch from a Master

    In episode 24, the horological homies assemble for a brief catch-up after the Dubai Horology Forum in New York, where Eric Wind spoke on the "Made in America" panel along with Aldis Hodge and Cara Barrett. Then, the homies give a brief preview of fall auctions before looking at a few recent results, most notably the sale of the Cartier Cheich for more than $1 million. Finally, we talk about the vintage Jaeger-LeCoultre lamp post clock, recently covered in an in-depth post on Strictly Vintage Watches. This is a short episode, but we promise we'll be back with longer shows as the auction season heats up!

The best place to learn about the market and significant watches

I never miss an episode. If you’re into vintage, the market, and other news about literally “significant” watches this podcast is for you. I take in a fair amount of watch content - and 99% of it I can skip. Not this one. I immediately put it at the top of my queue as soon as they drop a new episode.

Favorite podcast on watches

I just heard about the podcast a few weeks ago, and I’ve already listened to every episode. I have listened to watch podcasts of all types, and I can easily say this is my favorite. I’m not a vintage or independent aficionado, but I learn so much from hearing them talk. You can’t hide the passion of any of these guys….I do miss Eric’s watch going off though 😂

Zeiss87 ,

Aficionados and Scholars of Horology.

First off like to say this really well rounded podcast about watches or horology in general.

For someone who has just really dipped his toe into the world. There is a lot useful knowledge to soak up. Also, It’s a joy to hear different opinions and views on an array of aspects in the watch world. From individuals who seem to have specific knowledge certain areas like vintage and modern watches.

Looking forward to new episodes in 2023!
