The Time 4A Pint Podcast

The global watch industry produces an estimated 1.2 billion units a year. With around, 7.5 billion people on the planet, that means that over a 6 and a half year period, enough are made for every one of us to go out and buy a brand new watch of our own.In reality, that’s not what happens.For starters, just because all these watches are being churned out, doesn't mean that anyone is actually buying them.Lots of people can’t understand why you would spend money on a wrist watch.After all, with just a couple of taps, your mobile phone can tell you what the time is anywhere in the world - and you can catch Pokemon on it. You can’t do that with a watch.On the other hand, for some people, one watch isn’t enough.There are those among us that hunt out, capture, collect, catalogue, and show off their watches to others who share the same passion. On internet forums, Instagram, and even at in person meetups.For those who collect, watches are kind of like Pokemon, they’ve got to catch them all. And that’s what this show is all about.Watch collectors. Not Pokemon.

15: The Super Long Sunday Session with Mike from Fratello Watches

Welcome to Episode 15 of the Time 4A Pint podcast - this week we sat down with Mike Stockton, from Fratello watches, to talk about being a (part time) watch journalist, and a full time watch nerd. Mike has a enviable collection of interesting watches, but to keep things under control we made him choose 7 to bring along - a 1980 Rolex GMT Master Root Beer a.k.a "The Clint Eastwood" (although we think "Miami Vice" would be a better nickname!), a Grand Seiko SBGW047, a Gallet Multichron 12, a Breitling 756 Co-Pilot, an Enicar Sherpa Graph Mk1b, a 1965 Seiko 62Mas 6127, and a Heuer Camero. If you're interested in the BCatt Watchstraps that Mike has fitted to his Breitling 765 Co-Pilot, and Enicar Sherpa Graph Mk1B, and would like to see more of Ben's work, or find out how to order, you can check out his Instagram Page.

46: Drinking Beers and Talking Watches with Ben

Welcome to Episode 46 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I got together with Ben, blogger for 8 Past 10, and watch enthusiast (not collector... or so he thinks!), to drink beers and talk watches. This show was a fantastically quick turnaround, from a very brief chat over a beer on Friday, to a recording (and a couple more beers) on the following Wednesday. And up to the point where the recorder started rolling, I had no idea where the conversation was going to go, or what we were going to talk about. Pretty much the same position you guys are in at the start of each show. Cheers. Head to https://www.time4apint.com/podcast/the-time-4a-pint-podcast-episode-46 for pictures and show notes.

47: Getting to the Core of Chris' Collection

Welcome to Episode 47 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - Ever since the first episode aired in April 2017, people have been sending me messages, asking about my watches. What do I have? What have I sold? What do I like? What doesn’t do it for me? What’s next on the list? And whilst answers to those questions, and more, have been woven into to the conversations that I’ve had with guests over the last 46 shows, there was no single place where I just got to talk about my stuff. So this week I set out to change that, and Invited friend of the show Jonas over to drink some beers, eat some pizza, and talk about the 6 watches which make up the core of my collection. There are some mistakes in here, some questions I just don’t have answers to, and I’m sure I got some things totally back to front, but hey, I never claimed to be an expert. I’m just a guy who likes watches. And beer and pizza. Clearly. Watches on this episode: 2002 Omega Speedmaster Professional (reference 3570.50.00) 2002-2006 Omega Speedmaster Professional X-33 Second Generation (reference 3291.50.00) 1974 Omega Speedsonic (reference 188.0002) 1969 Omega flightmaster Cal. 910 (reference 145.013) 1971 Omega flightmaster Cal. 911 (reference 145.026) 2013 Omega Speedmaster Professional Racing "TinTin" (reference 311.30.42.30.01.004) Head to https://www.time4apint.com/podcast/the-time-4a-pint-podcast-episode-47 for pictures and show notes.

26: Stupid. But Incredibly Lucky.

Welcome to Episode 26 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - this week I sat down with Jason to talk about his watch collecting journey, the lessons he's learned along the way, the ones he hasn't, and to remind him that watches are not investments.  When I'm writing notes before and interview, I try to build a theme around the collector in question's watches. It could be that all the watches are from a brand,  that they came from various trips, or milestones, or just that they're things their owner was drawn to. This week, things seemed to split into 4 distinct groups: Stupid but... lucky? Seamasters for Fathers Down the Internet Rabbit Hole Future Classics I'm sure we've all bought and owned watches from the first and third categories, and hope we're currently holding them from the fourth!
