In this episode aBlogtoWatch Weekly, Rick, Ariel and David sat down to discuss some of the latest news stories and notable new releases from this week in the world of watches. The trio begins with a quick discussion about receiving watches in the mail that you’ve purchased, followed by a brief chat about the longest wait any of them have had to wait to receive a watch, and how they deal with that wait. From there, the conversation pivots to Hublot and the brand’s obvious yet unusual decision to sponsor the world of soccer, then a deep dive into whether all the watches should be available in several different case sizes so we can finally put one. An end to the whole “best watch size” debate.
To kick off the discussion of this week’s new releases, the team first talks about the new Shinola and Lincoln Runway models in watch and car collaboration pieces, while Ariel briefly gives the two Europeans some context for the Lincoln brand. Little is known about this decidedly American automotive manufacturer. After a conversation about cars and watches, the show breaks for a surprise interview with this week’s mystery guest, Richard Benck from Studio Underd0g. After hearing the latest updates straight from Richard, we get to hear our trio of hosts’ thoughts on the latest new release from his brand, which is Strawberries and Cream (yes, the dessert dish). Continuing with new watches this week, our hosts discuss the latest limited edition NASA x G-Shock collaboration as well as the new Mach 1 Synchro from the Bangalore watch company celebrating the 25th anniversary of the “Suryakiran” Indian Air Force Formation Aerobatics Team. Introducing the newest location in Los Angeles where you can find some of G-Shock’s premium models.
