    Ep. #175: Watch Jargon - Digging Through the BS

    11/05/2020 Duração: 01h33min

    This week the guys are digging into one of the more pervasive perils of watch collecting out there: watch jargon. All too often we just nod our heads to watch terms that brands and other collectors fling about. So all of us here at TBWS have taken it upon ourselves to start shedding light on those watch terms that we feel all modern, thoughtful and informed watch enthusiasts should be aware of.... there's also a fair bit of horological hooliganism in this one.

    Ep. #174: The "F*ck You" Watch

    04/05/2020 Duração: 01h35min

    This week the guys tackle the "F*ck You" watch. Now, where "Guilty Pleasure" watches are loved with a sense of guilt, the "F*ck You" watch is loved loud and proud. Sometimes existing outside our normal taste spectrum, and obviously existing far outside our normal budgets, the "F*ck You" watch topic is a safe space for horological enthusiasts to articulate their love for watches that are often ridiculous, ostentatious, or just plain weird.

    24/02/2020 Duração: 01h32min

    This week we're tackling more horological prejudices by taking a deep dive into a single burning question: why all the fashion watch hate? When we make the transition from horological civilians to watch collectors why is there so much hate for fashion watches (i.e. Timex, Michael Kors, Fossil, Kate Spade, ect ect.)? This week we argue that based on the accepted derogatory definition of a "Fashion watch," all watches are fashion watches.
