Kaz and Mike talk about Quartz watches, their value, precision, durability, and why they make people angry in the pants. Our first quartz watches and what they mean to us as collectors today. Mike’s wife interrupts the watch snobs. We also talk about water resistance, how it’s marketed, and share some cool new straps from ToxicNATOs. Kaz eats toxic candy.
This week the Affordable Vintage Watch goodness continues with a brief discussion on Kaz’s Omega Seamaster 30 and Mike’s Vostok Amphibia. Plus the guys then transition to talking about first time affordable vintage time pieces for those on a budget: the Seiko World Time and the Raketa Perpetual Calendar.
Mikes shares his experience attending the Hodinkee + Dobel Tequila event in Miami, breaking down the watches he saw there and how he doesn’t know shit about tequila. The guys are also getting ready for Wind Up NYC 2016 and Kaz shares that one time he ate kale stems… he doesn’t like kale stems. You know, because he’s not a gerbil.
