There’s a super fun audio wrist check in order, and a big announcement at the very end. Tune in and share your thoughts. Are the guys just grumpy old men? Are they overreacting? You be the judge.

Kaz Mirza( Co-Founder )

Kaz has been collecting watches since 2015, but he’s been fascinated by product design, the Collector’s psychology, and brand marketing his whole life. While sharing the same strong fondness for all things horologically-affordable as Mike (his TBWS partner in crime), Kaz’s collection niche is also focused on vintage Soviet watches as well as watches that feature a unique, but well-designed quirk or visual hook.
