Hey, you guys like cookies? The Snobs have a bone to pick with you #watchfam… Why do you all keep outbidding Mike on auctions that he’s really trying to win? There’s a heat wave going on, he’s actually melting on air, and he just wants to win a cool watch. J/K… you guys do what you want ;)

We get the latest update on Rivkah Watches, and Kaz thanks the listeners for all the support during the design and manufacturing process. Keep an eye out for pre-orders coming soon and be sure to follow Rivkah Watches on Instagram @rivkahwatches

Finally, the guys crack their heads open on the concept of building a large, budget-conscious collection vs. a smaller collection comprised of slightly more expensive watches. What do you guys think? Be sure to listen in and share your thoughts!

Kaz goes on an epic journey to the Miami Seiko boutique to claim one of the coolest limited edition Seiko divers ever released. He covers the details of his buying experience, gets a chance to sample some real Japanese whiskey, and stresses the importance of developing a positive relationship with a brand that means so much to him. Meanwhile...Mike’s wrist is still starving after weeks of #watchfasting.

The snobs then go on to share their hopes and predictions for Baselworld 2017, talk about a few pre-Basel releases, and try to figure out what really draws watch enthusiasts to Seiko.

Mike also finds himself in a brief state of panic and can’t figure out if he’s actually talking to Kaz or Aziz Ansari.

Also, matching Seiko Tsunami butt tattoos anyone?

Mike gets in a new “flyer” watch and is really enjoying his new Marathon Pilot Navigator. We get another Rivkah update (Pre-orders coming soon!) and Kaz reaches out for some pre-order advice from the #watchfam. Kickstarter? Indiegogo? What’s the best approach?

Also, stuff that isn’t dishwasher safe in 2017 sucks ass.

Rank #15: Ep. 132 Traveling With Watches

Podcast cover
Read more
This week Mike and Kaz are talking about what they look for in a good travel watch. What neither expected is just how much their perspectives have changed over the past 2 years. Do we actually need a "travel" watch? Or is it just another one of those collector-pitfalls we convince ourselves is normal? The guys discuss choices for a sporty travel watch, a dressy travel watch, and the perfect hotel bar travel watch.

Rank #18: Ep. #17 In Pursuit of the Ideal Watch Collection

Podcast cover
Read more
Kaz and Mike discuss exactly what types of watches (a diver, a chrono, ect.) would be necessary in the most basic, but fulfilling quintessential collection. Also, what types of watch categories are stand alone categories? Should certain watches even be considered a type of category?

Plus, Kaz discusses the finer points of watch-to-testicle timepiece ownership - the only surefire way to properly claim ownership of a watch (for guys anyway).

The group closes the show on the idea of the "cash-in-your-chips" watch - the watch purchase you make at the end of your collection as the final expression of your horological passion. You've collected x and y watches for however many years, and now you buy one watch to punctuate that collection - think of it almost as a grand finale to your collecting.

Rank #19: Ep. #3 - Affordable Vintage Watches P.2..?

Podcast cover
Read more
NOTE: we had some technical difficulties here and experienced some bleed through with our audio - so sometimes you may catch a faint echo noise - we're so sorry. It really shouldn't impact your listening experience but we just wanted to let you know that we were aware of it.

===

Kaz opens with an apology for insinuating a conspiracy against the TBWS Instagram...

Then we continue with our affordable vintage watch talk with brief discussion of Kaz's Omega Seamaster 30 (1962 - 286 Cal) and Mike's Vostok Amphibia.

Afterwards the team sinks their teeth into the topic further by recommending first time vintage watch purchases for the discerning (but broke as hell) watch snob: The Seiko World Time and the Raketa Perpetual Calendar.

In the process of talking about the pieces we chose, we discuss methods of buying vintage and doing your best to research everything sufficiently.

Things we considered when picking our choices:
-Conversation/cool factor
-Price (obviously)
-Rarity
-Risk factor

Kaz and Mike also reminiscence about the first time they ever talked about watches... the scariest day of Mike's life. Also, Talkboys, Pogs, and the Jackie Chan Richard Mille inevitably come up as talking points for some reason.

Plus Mike talks about NAWCC! (not the NAACP like Kaz though)

PLEASE NOTE: We curse - a lot.
