Rank #1: Episode #3 - What's In The Collection? - Part 1

Podcast cover
Read more
In this episode: Perpetual Girl wears an evening gown...and...Ranch Racer reads some instructions!

This is an epic episode as it marks the team’s final recording before posting the first three episodes on iTunes, making the Love ‘N Watches Podcast official. Exciting stuff! Recording quality should be noticeably better from here on out.

Wrist Checks: Double R is sporting a recently acquired Seals Watch Co. Model A that he borrowed and didn’t return to another fellow watch geek. Michael Seals is a local watchmaker in the Northern California Foothills who takes his inspiration from military tanks. PG is wearing a mid-2000s era Bulova ladies quartz that Double R bought for her after a few years of marriage.

The topic for this episode focuses on revealing just a small part of the dynamic duo’s watch collection. PG actually had a plan, discussing several of her Bulova pieces, both vintage and modern. Double R did no planning whatsoever, basically grabbing three completely random watches from his collections and talking about them in no particular order. PG - 1, Double R - 0.

PG kicks things off with her very well preserved Bulova Miss America from the Art Deco period of American history, complete with an original box that the watch would have been delivered in back in the day. Double R then chimes in with his hideously gigantic Bulova Precisionist - not a watch that he wears all that often anymore - with its high frequency 262kHz quartz movement and very cool chronograph complication, a Christmas gift from PG.

Then it’s back to PG with her Bulova blue dial Ladies Diamond Collection watch, a Christmas gift from Double R, who then waxes poetic about his Detroit Watch Co. 1701 Power Reserve. PG wraps up with another vintage Bulova that she actually bought for Double R and then stole back. Double R finishes off with his newly acquired Omega Speedmaster “Sapphire Sandwich”. Great story behind this one!

The team is heading to a couple of really cool shows in the next month. First up is Windup in San Francisco May 18th through the 20th, followed by COUTUREtime in Vegas the first weekend in June. Should make for some great future show content!

Rank #2: Episode 7 - Welcome To Watch Class 101

Podcast cover
Read more
This week’s show kicks off with a HUGE apology to our listeners who’ve been asking about episode 7. Our goal is always to release a new episode every other Tuesday night. Unfortunately due to a crazy work schedule for Ranch Racer, along with workers pounding around, hammering and nailing a new roof into place on the house, it just wasn’t in the cards this time around so we’re a few days late. Going forward we’ll try our best to get these episodes out on time every time.

Get out there and rate and review us folks! Take a couple of minutes to tell us what you think with a quick iTunes review. It’ll help grow the show and help us tailor future content for you. Remember, we’re not in this for the money! We’ve invested our own funds to bring you a show that we hope you’ll enjoy, simply out of our love for the hobby. Help us out by letting us know what you think.

On the wrist today Perpetual Girl is wearing her funky vintage Seiko she just picked up on eBay and Ranch Racer is sporting his Seiko Presage SRPB43 (a recent gift from PG) on a new blue leather strap.

Today’s topic is around educating our listeners on the basics of watch collecting. What information should you be armed with if you’re intent on entering this crazy hobby? What about more advanced topics? And how about all of that terminology the big blogs use that sounds more like a foreign language than anything having to do with a watch?

We’re here to help. We’ll cover all kinds of fun watch related stuff in this extended episode. We just hope you don’t get bored to death listening to Ranch Racer geek out on all things watches!

See https://www.lovenwatches.com/2018/07/05/episode-7-welcome-to-watch-class-101/ for photo gallery of topics discussed on today's show.

Rank #3: Episode #4 - Discussion On Watch Materials

Podcast cover
Read more
In this week’s show Ranch Racer and Perpetual Girl discuss the various materials used in watch construction, and the merits (and demerits) of each. Let’s just say that rose gold most definitely is NOT their favorite.

PG kicks off the wrist checks with her Christopher Ward C60 Trident GMT 600 38mm. The duo both have a ton of respect for CW and what they’ve done with the various collections. Ranch Racer is wearing his newly acquired Casio AMW-320R analog/digital diver from the early 90s, who’s purchase was inspired by an Instagram post. Thanks @casio.geek!

A HUGE shout out to Mike and Kaz from Two Broke Watch Snobs. Kaz was super patient with Ranch Racer’s late night questions on website design, Podcast publishing, etc. And both Mike and Kaz took the time to listen to the first couple of episodes and provide their feedback. Thanks guys!

On to the main topic where the pair touch on the various materials used today in watch design including rose gold, yellow gold, bronze, carbon fiber, and stainless steel. Not everyone will agree with their assessments, but disagreement is what makes the world go ‘round! Let us know what you think.

Rank #4: Episode 8 - Buy What You Love & Love What You Buy!

Podcast cover
Read more
In this week’s episode Perpetual Girl and Ranch Racer dive into some controversial topics. First they discuss the world of Invicta, why the brand frequently comes under fire from the watch community, and why that shouldn’t matter to you if you see an Invicta YOU like and want to own. They also touch a bit on brand ambassadors and why that tends to be a big turn off for them personally. Finally, they delve into the topic of why we all collect watches in the first place. Oh, and Ranch Racer meets a twenty-something who can’t tell time! Ugh. Hope you all enjoy the show!

Rank #5: Episode #5 - Fun in Vegas!

Podcast cover
Read more
It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt! Actually, nobody got hurt in our Vegas adventure to COUTUREtime 2018, and we met with some great brands. We also had some fun shopping on our “day off”, and might have bought a couple of new pieces that you’ll hear about in the wrist check.

During said wrist checks there may be some brand boutique bashing. Well, not bashing per se, but most definitely an important lesson to be learned. In this case the brand boutique lost out and the multi-brand Vegas retailer won.

In this first show covering COUTUREtime we discuss Philip Stein and Oris. Philip Stein we knew next to nothing about prior to the show, but learned some cool things and were actually pretty impressed with their offerings. Oris, on the other hand, we knew a TON about and were certainly not disappointed seeing their new offerings in the metal.

Hope you enjoy the show!

On the wrist of both hosts today are some pieces in for review from Philip Stein. Aside from the promise of better health through positive frequencies, they're just cool looking pieces.

Rank #7: Episode 24 - Moonphase Complications and Movie Reviews

Podcast cover
Read more
Ok just kidding, no movie reviews, although we MIGHT just throw in our opinion of some of the newer Star Wars releases at the very end of today's show.

PG has done a bunch of research and digging to bring you the history and background of the moon phase complication. Only fitting for the topic we're both wearing our newly acquired moon phase watches. PG has her Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase and RR is sporting his new Glycine Combat Classic Moonphase that he recently grabbed on Massdrop.

We also FINALLY announce our inaugural Love 'N Watches regram contest winner, talk about a fun event coming up hosted by Redbar Sacramento, and throw our two cents in on Seiko's recently announced Alpinist reissue.

Hope you all enjoy the show. Don't forget to follow us on Instagram at @lovenwatches, and check out our new YouTube channel as well.

We hope PG's suggestions help ease the stress that can inevitably come with holiday gift shopping. Check out lovenwatches.com for photos, prices, and links for all of the items discussed on the show.

We also go in depth (no pun intended) on watch water resistance ratings and what the ISO 6425 dive watch standard really means.

And does a good experience lead you to buy a watch you may not have even considered? We'll tell you our thoughts and the results of our Vegas watch shopping.
