Hello and welcome to the latest episode of The HourTime Show, the official podcast of Victor and Nicholas are your hosts this week. Thank you for listening!

We open with a discussion of two watches that were just announced: the $49,000 Grand Seiko SLGA008 (aka the “tree ring dial”) and the $895 Bulova MIL-SHIPS-W-2181. Neither of us are likely to afford the Grand Seiko any time soon—listen as we lament about not investing in bitcoin when we first heard about it *more than a decade ago*—but the Bulova is pretty handsome and fairly priced. As Victor points out, you could get a WMT watch and get the same “look” for about half the price, but sometimes you’re OK with spending twice the amount to get a logo.

We also touch on the endless debate over big watches, with a brief turn to last year’s Tag Heuer Carrera Sport.

That about does it for this week. We once again extend our thanks to Andrew Haworth for producing. Please keep it locked to and @wristwatchreview on Instagram for more fun watch content. Have a great week!
