Basel World 2018 is over, everybody – the dust has settled and the Two Broke Watch Snobs have just one question… did the event live up to the hyperbole (or is life just as meaningless as it was before more Blackbays were rammed down our gullets)? Mike and Kaz take a look at releases from this year’s event – including Tudor, Sinn, Nomos, and more. Plus the guys shed light on some news that weirdly enough no one seemed to care about (cough Citizen cough….cough, seriously, people…Citizen). Tune in, sit back, and enjoy! 🙂

Also, Mike and Kaz both had super stressful weeks and as a result both fell back on watches that simply make them happy for this week’s wristcheck… Both are iconic divers and both tend to get forgotten in the greater deluge of dive watch over-saturation. 0_o

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.
