Rumors of our demise have been grossly overstated. We have, however, had a busy November. We do apologize, dear listeners, for leaving you in the lurch for so long. While the time off was busy, there was a new watch added to Spence's collection. We wax poetically about it in this episode. We hope you enjoy!
This week's episode is a lot of fun. Spence sits down with Nick, from StrapHabit. We talk about the origin of the pink strap collaboration with Brodinkee, watch collecting, and where he wants to take his brand next. This episode was a long time coming, as we have actually met IN PERSON before (crazy right?)! It was great to catch up with Nick and all of the cool things he is doing. There is still time to get your pink straps to support Men Wear Pink, so be sure to check them out soon!

This episode has been teased, and for good reason. We are delighted to have our buddy Chris Sohl back on the show. Chris has been rather busy since we last spoke with him. As an avid diver and watch enthusiast, he has had the opportunity to be at, or in some cases organize, some pretty cool events in which his two passions intersect. Whether it be Wind Up In a Lake, the recent Tudor FXD launch, or a Mark V dive with a special meaning. His experiences have allowed us to live vicariously through him at times, and his storytelling is superb. We hope you enjoy this one as much as we did!
Sad news this week, legendary host of The Price Is Right, Bob Barker, passed away at the age of 99. While we are all saddened by the news, we felt a tribute was in order. So we brought friend of the show @Brodinkee back to play host to a little competition between Spence and Buzz. This was a lot of fun to record, and despite having to do most of the work, we think @Brodinkee enjoyed playing host. Enjoy!
This episode is a lot of fun. While Spangler is away, Spence and Buzz play with a fun idea. We didn't even get through all of our thoughts on this, so see if there is a follow up episode! We talk about the evolution of watch tastes within specific watch categories. How one might start out with a Seiko and end up with a Submariner! This was a lot more fun than either of us anticipated, we hope you enjoy!
This episode is the first time we have had brothers as guests on the podcast. Surprising that it has taken us this long, but it was worth the wait. We have local friends Zack and Mitch who both have influenced each other along their collecting journey. Additionally, many of you may have run across Mitch's website, Menswearmusings.com! We get the inside scoop on his journey and passion for tailored clothing, the experience of going to Pitti Uomo in Florence, and how welcoming the menswear community can be. There is a significant amount of overlap here with watch collecting, so these topics seem to fit like a well tailored jacket, enjoy!
This week's episode was pitched to us (and Wrist Cheese Radio) by a listener local to us in Cincinnati. We all have watches that fill a gap in our collection, and for that reason, there are other watches we do not own. In some ways, this is the collection we could have had. It is our doppelganger collection. Enjoy!
This episode reunites the original dynamic duo after some time spent as ships passing in the night. Spence and Spangler are back at it! We are sadly without the third leg of our tripod as Buzzman had to sit this one out. That said, we are getting into some new releases and a unique thread that unites all of them. Something that frustrates us, and we are sure frustrates many of you. Enjoy!
Spence is joined once again by an esteemed guest host. Now 5 time participant on the podcast, @ryanwearswatches, joins to talk about watch alternatives. Whether you are looking at a vintage Constellation vs. a Tissot PRX, a smooth bezel Datejust vs. a Tudor Black Bay 36 on jubilee, there are plenty of good watches to discuss. Spence is very intrigued by a new Seiko 62mas re-edition compared to his own SPB149. Enjoy!
This week's episode is a different vibe from the last two weeks because Spence is back! He is flying solo from a W&W perspective, so he had to call in his wingman from the west coast. Matt McD from Spirit of Time joins to talk about all of the new releases, some cool stuff we have tried on, some collection conundrums, and the problem with watches under $1,500. Enjoy!
On this episode we are thrilled to sit down with co-founder Zac and plank owner Alex to discuss their watch collecting journey. What is neat about this episode is how the collector bug spawned something greater, service for those called to serve. If you haven't heard about AWWC (and if you listen to this and other podcasts we know you have) you should check out what they are doing as a community and charitable organization.
For those of you who listen to the Spirit of Time podcast and Wrist Cheese Radio you will know what we are talking about today. The beverage of choice of one James Bond 007. While it might take us a bit to get there, we promise that we will lean in heavy on the cocktails and heavy on the banter. Enjoy!
