Happy 4th of July! Well, technically it’s July 5 but many places in the US (including us here WristWatchReview.com) are taking the day off to celebrate the holiday. So what I I thought would be a fun idea would be to highlight some of out favorite episodes of our official podcast, The HourTime Show, since we re-launched last December.
Let’s start with the first episode of our comeback, which was initially published on Dec. 22, 2020. In it WirstWatchReview Kingpin John explains the site’s podcast history while Nicholas (IE, me) explains what got him into watches in the first place. Fun!
Fast forward a few months and NFTs are dominating the discourse online, so of course we had to talk about them. In this episode your pals go over some experimentation with putting watches on the blockchain and what lessons the watch industry could learn from the hype masters over in the sneaker world.
Did you hear that Alex Rodriguez broke up with Jennifer Lopez? Of course you did. But I like to think we were the very first podcast to talk about it because the New York Post story breaking the news had just gone up seconds before we hit record and of course we needed to address it. Who knew that J. Lo had a line of watches? We also discuss some of the nonsense that goes on trying to get your local AD to sell you the watch you want. Dumb!
In this summer-themed episode, your pals discuss the idea of the perfect poolside watch. OK, the Submariner is sort of the default answer here but that is by no means the only one!
Our latest episode, recorded just a few weeks ago, includes a very rare appearance from WristWatchReview Managing Editor Patrick Kansa and a recap of Nicholas’s trip to the Grand Seiko boutique in New York City.

Thank you, and have a great week!
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
