Hello and welcome to the latest episode of The HourTime Show, the official podcast of WristWatchReview.com. Your hosts this week are Victor and Nicholas. Stay a while, and listen.
We open this week with some Apple Watch news.
According to a recent report in the WSJ, it may soon gain a whole bunch of health-related capabilities including the ability to measure blood pressure. While we may not necessarily need these capabilities today, they do go some way toward fulfilling Tim Cook’s 2019 suggestion that Apple’s biggest contribution to mankind will be related to health.
We then take a quick right into strap discussion, including rumors suggesting the upcoming Apple Watch Series 7 will not work with Series 6 (and older) straps and how new straps can help rekindle your interest in old watches. YouTuber Teddy Baldassarre, who we like a lot actually, recently made this suggestion and we wholeheartedly agree!
Next up, some of the watches that were announced at the recent Geneva Watch Days trade show… Nicholas doesn’t get ’em. They’re *very* fancy and impressive in their own right, but are they really the same thing as like an SKX or Seamaster or Oris? IDK! We’re talking pieces like this Urwerk, this Girard-Perregaux, and this Greubel Forsey.
We close out the week with our two cents on brand management, or lack thereof, focusing on Citizen, Seiko, and Bulova.
That about does it.
Thank you again to Andrew Haworth for producing.
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.
