In this episode, Cameron and Matt cover all the major different type of wristwatch movements, with examples of each and descriptions of how they work.

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 #12: Getting to Know the Omega Speedmaster

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Rank #13: 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.
