In this episode we discussed watches that have been Frankensteined. Meaning modified to such an extent that they are don't look like the original piece it started out to be. Should you buy these or not, or the better questions would be, would you do this to your watch?

We had to chose our 3 watch collection and had a budget of $15,000. While that sounds like a lot of money, and it is, it was not easy choosing 3 pieces to fit that criteria but we did it. Our personal takes on this. As usual, our opinions!


Hope you enjoy this one!

The questions is to service your watch or not? This has been a hot topic for a long time as manufacturers like to change dials, dials and polish your watch too much. Here are 3 opinions on whether to service or not.

On this episode we give some love to lesser know brands no one is peaking about. Superb manufacturing, in limited numbers and quantities but the quality is exceptional. As always, the conversation goes sideways, but hey, that's what makes us different!
