Welcome back to another exciting edition of The HourTime Show, the official podcast of WristWatchReview.com! It’s just Victor and Nicholas this week, but don’t worry: we actually talk about watches.
Like many podcasts, your humble hosts usually banter a bit before actually hitting the record button, and one of the topics in this week’s Banter Session actually made it to the air, and that’s the idea of watch companies turning some of their most popular models (think the Seiko Willard, the Tudor Black Bay, and the Timex Q Reissue) into “platforms.” These are watches that serve as a base for a million other watches that come later. The recently announced Seiko SPB237, which Nicholas loves but will retail for $1200 when it’s released in June, is but one example: it’s a Willard with a slightly fancier textured dial.
More importantly, however, we want to hear from you: Knowing what you know now about watches, what’s the best watch you can buy for $300? Or for $500? We touched briefly on this topic in this week’s episode but will go in-depth next week featuring your responses (and our own two cents). Please feel free to email us at [email protected] with your picks.
Once again thanks are in order to Andrew Haworth for producing this week’s episode.
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.
