“Why is he yelling?” someone in the YouTube comments has already asked. And it’s a good question. In my first appearance in Every Watch Tells A Story, I am shouting like a person in a particularly noisy pub. That’s because, for the shoots that comprise this series that’s what the Time+Tide office turns into. A particularly noisy pub.
It’s the excitement. It’s the enthusiasm. And yes, it’s the refreshments that are always flowing. These events, usually based around Club get-togethers or, in this case, an Indie Explorer evening, are ones to let the hair down at. The official brand events are special, too, but they’re usually more about discovering collections, meeting the people behind the watches and, very often, education.
They’re super fun for the team, too. And I miss them like I never thought I would right now. Anyway, the lady doth protest too much. Yes, I’m shouting; yes, I’m well refreshed; and yes, I’m enthusiastic about these two watches. Very much so. What we have here is the DOXA SUB 1200T, a now discontinued model. And we have the William Wood Valiant, Red Watch. In a first for Every Watch Tells A Story, the modern variation of the DOXA and the exact same model of the William Wood are available in the Time+Tide Shop. I hope you enjoy the stories behind both watches; they have a place in my heart for different reasons. Thanks, as always, for watching.
