On this episode we discuss a bunch of things that you should know/ask before you purchase a used Rolex (or any used mechanical watch for that matter). We discuss originality, lug thickness, polished vs unpolished, and much more. Keep in mind, this is just the tip of the iceberg as to what we can go
On this episode I discuss Seiko’s mighty 6309 Turtle. I give a brief overview of the 7040 and 7049, the Suwa “S” (just below the 150M water resistance line of text) and talk about my personal 7049, which I have owned for over 30 years. Seiko recently reissued these as “SRP777” with a 4R35 movement
On this episode I revisit the Hamilton Khaki Navy dive watch and discuss what happened, i.e., why I never made a follow up video! It’s a very good watch with great heritage and I love my Hamilton Field Khaki 38mm, yet this one didn’t do it for me.
On this episode I go a little deeper with the Hamilton Khaki King Auto – 40mm Date/Day watch. This watch is a great value proposition in terms of the build quality, heritage, robust movement with 80 hour reserve and fantastic overall aesthetic. This gorgeous watch is on loan from mimosjewelry.com. If you would like a
Unboxing the Hamilton Khaki King Auto – 40mm Date/Day watch. On this episode I take a first look at the Hamilton Khaki King Auto with day and date function. This watch has a gorgeous dial and is very similar to my beloved Khaki Field 38mm Auto.
On this episode we take a look at an unheralded vintage time piece from Seiko, the SKX033. In production for only 12 years, starting in 1996, this piece seems to fly under the radar amongst collectors. It definitely takes many design cues from the famous Rolex Submariner, but it does have some typical Seiko flare
On this episode I give my long term thoughts on my Hamilton Field Khaki Auto 38mm watch. I also review the Strapcode Super Oyster bracelet. This bracelet is actually made for the Seiko SARB017 but seems to fit pretty close on this watch.
On this episode I give a quick first impression of the Hamilton Khaki Scuba 100M dive watch – reference #H8231593. Based on build quality and movement, this watch is a legitimate contender for the best under $500 dive watch on the market. It features Hamilton’s H10 automatic movement with 80 power reserve, sapphire crystal, and
On this episode I take a look at a cool new retro inspired watch from Baltic Watches out of France. The watch features a Miyota 821A automatic movement, wonderful Italian calf leather strap, and has a great vintage vibe.

Tudor just surprised everybody by dropping a really interesting watch, the Black Bay P01 first at Baselworld 2019. It is not at all what anyone was expecting, (a Submariner) and it is nothing anyone has ever seen. It’s a very interesting strategy by them and I think it was a smart move for many reason,
Is this the perfect “do it all” Rolex? First an admission, back at the turn of the new millennium I worked at an authorized Rolex dealer. I have always loved the brand, going back to when I was a boy, watching Sean Connery play James Bond, making that infamous glance at his Submariner in Goldfinger. Has
