Episode. #23: Baselworld 2017 Press Day & The Ones That Got Away

Mike and Kaz talk shop with some of the early Baselworld 2017 releases that’ve been coming out… surprisingly they’re quite excited about a few of them! In particular Kaz is super into the new rederique Constant Flyback Chronograph Manufacture – so much so that he even chokes on his thin mints (you heard me). On the flip side, the newest Rolex Sea-Dweller has the snobs perplexed as hell.

The guys then discuss those watches…those few beautiful watches that’ve slipped through the cracks: “The Ones That Got Away.”

Mike laments the loss of his ’69 Smiths W10 and Kaz shares the tale of his white whale… all while spiraling into a hunger-induced, caffeine injected rage. Also, obviously, Mike’s dog join in to talk shop.
