The time travelling watch snobs bring you another episode from the past! Fear not, our regular scheduling will resume this coming week. For now, it’s time to talk homage watches… again. By the way, the moscato from last week makes another appearance.

Kaz also gets a new micro brand dive watch in for review and Mike is enjoying more time with a very special Orion Field Standard. There’s also a fun Sistem51 review up on the site and don’t forget to check the show notes to catch a video of watches actually EXPLODING.

Finally, Mike shares a dirty secret – he’s considering the Alpha ‘Paul Newman’ homage. What’s the deal with homage watches? Are we still offended by them? It gets exhausting and people on the internet are terrible… except you. Yeah you, thanks for catching the show 😉
