Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, Cameron and Matt, joined again by Chef and Rolex expert Carl Ruiz, explore the history and watches of the most valuable and iconic brand in watchmaking history: Rolex. Rolex doesn't make the most technologically advanced watches, or the most complicated watches, and they haven't been around as long as many of the other manufacturers, but they are the most iconic watch brand on the planet, recognizeable the world over for their timeless designs, underwater capabilities, and overall quality.

Rank #2: Getting to Know the Omega Speedmaster

Podcast cover

The Omega Speedmaster doesn't realy just describe one watch. The name Speedmaster describes an entire array of watches built over the last 62 years, and appreciated for their strong value-oriented approach to highly technical timekeeping, while, again, surviving the rigors of space flight time and time again. It takes a sharp eye to be able to spot differences from one model to the next, but Cameron and Matt do their best to cover all the crucial versions.

In this episode, Cameron and Matt explore the somewhat murky history of the Omega Watch Copmany. Because of Omega's earliest roots, they developed in a different way from other companies, and therefore, as we discuss, it can be hard to get straight information.

Rank #10: Affordable Vintage with Jonathan Ward

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, we invite the legendary Jonathan Ward into the studio to talk about affordable vintage watches! Jonathan has a long history with The Smoking Tire, as the creator of an incredible array of project cars for some very wealthy paying customers. He is primarily known for the ICON series of Toyota FJ and Ford Bronco resto-mods, but if it's mechanical and manly, odds are, Jon knows a lot about it.  He has over 100 watches, and so we asked him to bring a selection of fine vintage watches that could be bought online for under $1,000. We go over several examples, and then Jon gives us his strategy for finding good vintage watches on eBay. Finally, we get an exclusive look at the final, production version of Jon's first ever watch design, "The Duesey," and it's very cool storage box.

The International Watch Company, better known as IWC, celebrates its 150-year anniversary in 2018. In order to honor the occasion, Matt and Cameron take their first individual-brand deep-dive into the history, the technology, the story, and the watches of IWC. Known at first for highly legible tool watches, IWC has developed a reputation for tough, stylish, and in some cases, highly complex watches; watches which wear stealth on the wrist but offer tons of satisfaction to the owner.

Rank #15: Modding Seikos! With Mark of AverageBros

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, our most requested topic ever, we invite Mark Almeras from the AverageBros YouTube channel in to talk about modifying Seiko watches. The Seiko is like the LS engine of watches: good bones, reliabile and durable, but not always pretty out of the box, and with some obvious cost cutting in terms of some of the parts, the straps, bezels, etc. Fortunately, Seiko's have a huge aftermarket, not to mention lots of special edition, higher end models from Japan, and a lot of the parts are interchangeable! Whether you choose to modify the watch at home yourself, or take it to a watchmaker, Mark, Cameron and Matt explore some of the different ways you can modify a Seiko to get not only a unique look, but also the feeling on your wrist of a watch that's much more expensive and high quality than what comes out of the box.

Rank #16: The History and Watches of (Tag) Heuer

Podcast cover
Read more

In this episode, joined by Nick Farrell of DC Vintage Watches, we discuss the complete corporate and manufacturing history of Tag Heuer, known simply as Heuer before 1985. From its conception, the brand has focused on innovation in precise time keeping, eschewing pushing the boundaries of complication in favor of the boundaries of precision; at one point producing mechanical stopwatches capable of measuring in 1/1000 second increments. We take a look at some of Heuer's most iconic models, and their relationship with motor and yacht racing, and examine a bunch of watches from their current offerings.

Breitling has always been a brand associated wth aviation; pioneering the Pilot's watch far beyond a simple "large dial with clear numbers format. " Anyone who's ever watched an air show, or a Red Bull Air Race event, will have seen Breitling's racing planes taking home wins. Since 1884, Breitling has been obsessed with moving forward the art of precision chronometry, function, and, more recently, safety, with their innovative "Emergency" series of locator beacon-equipped wrist watches. Breitling has shown some innovative technologies, interesting designs, and passion for extreme human activities, which makes their story very interesting.
