    Ep. #206: When Does It End?

    Ep. #206: When Does It End?

    We’ve talked about the exit watch. We’ve talked about the perfect collection. And we’ve even talked about the one-watch collection. Whatever it is - what exactly does it look like when someone stops collecting watches and when someone reaches this seemingly ideal goal?

    Can you still be called a collector? Join Mike and Kaz for a deep look into the psychology of watch collecting, the role social media plays, and the deeper issues involved with retail therapy. Plus, you’ll get to hear the guys talk about the recent Nautilus discontinuation and customizing watches with WMT. Tune in!

Informative and entertaining

Two guys talking about what they’re passionate about. I’m not much of a watch guy and I still really enjoy listening due to their humor and passion, I think that says something.

Boring

So boring. I like the one guy, but Kaz’s voice and personality it grating.

One of the few non-boring watch podcasts

I love TBWS. Their humor and topics are actually unique. I usually am not a fan of most watch podcasts because they are sooooo boring and dry, just a bunch of dudes circle jerking the latest rolex release and talks about watches that the top 1% might care about.

NOT TBWS! These guys seem like dudes you’d actually want to hang out with.

Other watch podcasts please take note, TBWS knows how to make a entertaining podcast and not just a NPR sounding spec sheet reading crap podcast.
