Hour time Episode 162 – Once Upon a Time

Posted on 01 September 2014

Welcome to the HourTime show, the best 30 minute (+/-) hour podcast on the web.

In this weeks episode we discuss:

One upon a time there were two guys that really liked watches.

One day they had the fantastic idea of creating a podcast for other people that liked watches too. So shortly there-after, just like tireless seamstress behind her Singer, they ‘made it sew (so)’ and everything was great.

But after a while, both the watch nerds decided that instead of sitting behind their computers all day, dreaming, looking at, reading about and contemplating watches, they would go out side. And you know what? They liked it … a lot … and in no time flat, just going outside was no no longer enough for them so traveling to far away mystic lands became the order of the day – and they went EVERYWHERE!

This went on for many months, and the two guys that made that podcast, were not herd from for great stretches of time. This perplexed the inhabitants of the ‘Land-of-podcast-subscribers’ to no end, and they wondered if the watch nerds would ever start producing the podcast again. It was a dark time in the kingdom and many listeners were very sad, and turned to podcasts about cooking to help ease their wretched suffering.

Then one day they recorded another podcast and the people rejoiced. The End.


The moral of this story is: if you leave the seat that sits in front of your computer, the kingdom falls in to ruin.

Historical Horology: So, Who Made The First Chronograph?

Posted on 31 August 2014


When it comes to watches, there are generally two camps – those who are interested in where our modern watches originated from, and those who could care less. Now, the second camp, I am guessing we lost those people as soon as they saw the title of the post. Those of you left, well, welcome to the first camp. In today’s entry in the Historical Horology series, we will talk about who created the first chronograph. Continue Reading

Everywhere you look, smart watches are cropping up. The incoming Android-powered watches (and the long-rumored iWatch) of course take the lion’s share of the attention.

Today, we’ll be taking a look at one of those, the MOTA SmartWatch G2. Continue Reading

The GoS Bifrost Dresses Up

Posted on 28 August 2014


I have long been a fan of the creations coming from Gustafsson and Sjögren (aka GoS) Watches, with the inclusion of damascus-process steel. They pair the amazing patterns they fold into the steel with treatments that introduce colors evocative of different scenes, to great effect. While many dress watches tend to go for a look that will not attract undue attention, the GoS Bifrost instead has a stunning dial that invites commentary. Continue Reading

Looking For A French Connection – The G.Gagnebin & Cie Karaktero Review

While I’ve had a few languages represented by the watches that cross my desk, I’ve never had one with French on it come in for a closer look.
