Welcome back to another exciting edition of The HourTime Show, the official podcast of! 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.

We also discuss that Budweiser-branded G-Shock that was just announced and some Dan Henry chronos.

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 with your picks.

Once again thanks are in order to Andrew Haworth for producing this week’s episode.

Please be sure to keep it locked here at and @WristWatchReview on Instagram for more fun watch content. Have a great week! -Nicholas
