Hey, TBWS Fam!

Kaz here and this week I’m recording solo again – my better half in broke watch snobbery wasn’t available to join me for the second time. But the show must go on!

This week we’re returning to our most beloved segment here at TBWS. That’s right – it’s the one that started it all: Affordable Vintage Watches. This episode we’re breaking down our picks for Affordable Vintage Pilot Watches.

Hope everyone enjoy’s this week’s show!

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.
