This week, the founders of Revolution, Fratello Watches, Monochrome and of course Time+Tide spent a debaucherous evening discussing the new releases from Watches & Wonders. It was a wild four-way Zoom call of bad jokes, Negronis and, most importantly, solid discussion around the best watches of the year so far.
The discussion is set to be released in four parts, each of which will tackle a different category of watches as Andrew, Wei, RJ and Frank select their pick of the litter and justify why it’s a winner in their eyes. The first subject they tackled was “buyable” watches under $10k – a market segment that had extremely strong representation at W&W this year.
What did each of the four amigos select? You’ll have to watch the video to find out. If you do then you’ll have the chance to win one of four prizes donated by each member of the cartel, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled over the weekend. Even if (for some reason) you aren’t interested in winning prizes, each clip is a succinct summary of the best watches we’ve seen so far in 2021, discussed by some of the most knowledgeable guys in the game. Plus, it’s bloody entertaining too.
Have a great weekend,
