  • This week we immerse ourselves for an hour in the world of one of the world’s hottest (and hardest working) custom jewellers. A lot’s changed since we originally chatted to Greg Yuna in mid-2020, but he’s still out there, messing up factory watches and making them cooler in the process.

    Not too long into our interview with iconic NYC jeweller Greg Yuna, he asks to speak freely. "I like fucking the watches up. I like ruining them." Of course, he's doing nothing of the sort — his stone setting of Patek, AP and Rolex is up there with the best (he's called The Cleanest for a reason). While some purists might argue that this sort of custom work is sacrilegious, Yuna has a long list of clients, including Drake, Meek Mill, Floyd Mayweather and Ariana Grande who would argue the opposite. But Yuna's work ethic is as flawless as his stones — the man does not stop and is always onto the next thing, be that a stone dialled Rolex Day-Date, consulting on and appearing Adam Sandler's Uncut Gems, launching a new line of jewellery or helping sell the Jacob & Co 'Billionaire' watch. Do not miss this. You'll laugh, you'll learn, you'll be inspired.

  • This week we look back at one of our (especially Andy’s) all-time favourite episodes; our chat with James Cox, the man who sold Paul Newman’s Paul Newman …

    On the 26th of October, 2017, after 12 minutes of bidding, a Rolex Daytona reference 6239 that belonged to legendary actor Paul Newman was sold for $17,752,500 USD (including premiums). It’s widely regarded as the most significant watch auction to date, not just for the hammer price achieved, but for the significance of the watch. In the room was James Cox, who, for decades, wore that watch on his wrist. That was nearly three years ago now, so we thought it was high time to catch up with James and revisit the story of ‘Paul Newman’s Paul Newman’, how it ended up on James’ wrist. We talk about what he’s done with the millions of dollars (hint: making the world a better place), why even he can’t get a new Daytona at retail, and what watch has replaced the most famous Rolex in the world.

  • For our last episode of 2021, we catch up with a certified viral sensation and verified nice guy, Miles Fisher. We speak to Miles about how he’s been spending 2021, including trips to Dubai with Audemars Piguet with a side serving of Dubai Watch Week, and his rigorous collecting philosophy. But even if you don’t follow Miles for his snappy watch collection or coffee-related content, you’ve seen his work. Because Miles also has a double life as the man behind deepfake Tom Cruise, a parody account that’s scarily good. We chat to Miles about how some funny Tom Cruise election videos turned into exploring bleeding-edge technology with incredible possibilities and serious ethical issues. And of course, we look back at 2021; the good, the great and the forgettable.

  • Cara Barrett’s back, and now she’s at the helm of one of the coolest kid’s watch brands on the block, Parchie. We talk to Cara about what she’s been up to since she left Hodinkee, which largely involves getting to grips with the global supply chain, wrangling designers and manufacturers to create a series of cute, colourful timepieces made with small people in mind.

    Learn about the nuance of velcro straps and how life in the watch media prepared Cara for building a brand. We also talk about her growing Audemars Piguet problem, and what difference a few millimetres can make. Felix also talks about his love for well-muscled men, and Andy accidentally jumps onto the sneaker hype train.

  • In an OT: first, this episode features the guests outnumbering the hosts. Lung Lung Thun and Daniel Sum from The Waiting List podcast spend some time chatting to Felix about their thoughts on the hypiest of hype watches, the Tifanny-dialled Patek Philippe 5711 and quickly make it very clear that they are never getting one. But beyond this level of hot-take hijinks, we find out how Lung Lung deals with being low-key famous and get some fascinating insight into the reality and evolution of luxury watch brands and Chinese consumers.

    We also chat old Movado, what it’s like to temporarily lose access to your collection and why Dan’s a Reverso man. Of course, before the interview, Andy and Felix debrief on their debut collab, the anOrdain Model 2 OT: Edition, which came and went in less than 24 hours.

  • Hold onto your hats because OT: The Podcast has teamed up with everyone's favourite Glaswegian watchmaker, anOrdain, to make not one but two limited edition watches.

    Top line, the watch is a 39.5mm version of anOrdain's field watch-inspired model 2, with a stunning vitreous enamel dial in off-white or pink, and a distinctive 3,6,9 layout. But to understand the watch, you need to understand anOrdain. This is where Lewis comes in. He talks about the genesis of the anOrdain in 2015, when he posted an ad for an enameler at the local arts college and went about learning the tricky art of enamel watch dials. We find out how design innovation can be the result of happy accidents and find out just what goes into a successful collaboration. We also find out what his favourite part of the new watch is (spoiler — it's the hands) and what he enjoyed most about working with Andy and Felix.

    But back to the watch. Aside from the obvious details like the dial design and the larger case size, there are smaller touches to appreciate, too — like the seconds hand and track, as well as a caseback with an engraved map of Melbourne, Australia. The OT: Edition is a great example of the 'old crafts new hands' motto of anOrdain, pairing the traditional characteristics of an outdoors watch and anOrdain's expertise and unique typography with a lively colour palette perfectly in line with modern tastes.

  • A few months ago we ran an episode of hot takes, where we dialled up the spice with some controversial content from Discord and out very own heads. Well, we’re back at with round two. From bezels to watches as cosplay and even Felix throwing shade at the mighty MAD watch, we hold nothing back. Even before the user-generated content gets hot, we’ve got plenty to talk about, from more Aussie boutiques, a unique Big Pilot for Kennedy, a cheery Minions watch plus Nicholas Cage and his pig.

    This episode is brought to you by NOMOS Glashütte. Today Felix and Andy indulge in some hypothetical watch shopping, and chat about the new Orion in gold and silver. Find out more here.

  • Today’s guest is Alan Bedwell, the antiques expert behind cool curio site Foundwell. We chat to Alan about what it’s like growing up in an antique-dealing family and how he ended up looking after Ralph Lauren’s antiques, including dog paraphernalia, of all things.

    From there, Foundwell was formed through a stint at Bergdorf Goodman, and Alan was off to the races. We find out how the scene has changed over the years (hint, cufflinks aren’t cool right now), as well as his thoughts on why the watch market is white-hot.

    We also stray into watch-adjacent territory, talking about why clocks, even those from makers like Cartier and Jaeger-LeCoultre, are under-rated. Before Alan joined the chat, Andy and Felix found the time to talk luxury toaster smartphones, retro-futuristic cars and why Nomos nails watch accessories.

    This episode is brought to you by NOMOS Glashütte. Today we talk accessories and extras perfect for Christmas. From straps to postage stamps, you can always find something fun at NOMOS.

  • Today we talk to James Lamb, a British independent watchmaker who has taken a decidedly (and deliberately) old-school approach to his debut Origin series. While it's easy to be wowed by the four enamel dials (each inspired by one of the four elements), take a minute to appreciate the amount of skill and care that goes into handcrafting each case from a bar of Argentium silver — from the lathe-work to the soldering and the final polishing, all of it is 100 per cent Lamb.

    Beyond the watch itself, we find out how Lamb went about creating his watch and went against the grain of feeling the need to polish every screw and bridge, instead focusing his skill and effort on the details that really make his watches stand out. Before all that, Andy and Felix accidentally chat about a bunch of blue watches from Blancpain, Tudor and Nomos.

    This episode is brought to you by NOMOS Glashütte. Today we chat about the Nomos Club Sport neomatik 42 date blue, an all-terrain Club on a brand new bracelet. Check it out here.

  • It’s that time of the year when everyone starts talking about lots, hammer prices and buyers premiums — yep, Auction season. Many of the major houses all hold significant auctions in Geneva, along with some more special events. One such, being the Pink Dial Project, a charity auction put together by Revolution and supported by other media platforms and held on Eric Ku’s Loupe This platform. We chat about the $500k plus result and the surprising watch that pulled in $172K.

    We also catch up on the results of the star-studded Only Watch, another charity auction of unique pieces that saw five lots hammer in for more than one million francs, with the whole auction raising $32.1 USD. Then there are the less charitable lots, like a significant Dufour, and an early Omega that achieved an eye-watering record price. All this and more (G-Shock, sailcloth straps and GPHG analysis) in this week’s episode.

    This episode is brought to you by G-Shock Australia. Tune in to Andy chatting up the vivid red GM2100B-4A, and why it reminds him of that classic RTS game, Command & Conquer. To learn more about this G-Shock, head to g-shockaustralia.com.au

  • Today we chat to Sarah Hirini, the two-time Olympic gold medal-winning captain of New Zealand’s women’s national rugby team, the Black Ferns. And as if that wasn’t enough, she’s also a Tudor ambassador, which puts her alongside Lady Gaga as one of the brand’s few female ambassadors. We talk to Sarah about what it’s like to represent NZ in the Olympics, how she channels Tudor’s born to dare attitude, and why women’s rugby and professional women’s sports generally are finally getting the attention they deserve. We also find out how she’s liking the Black Bay 925 on the wrist. Andy and Felix also talk about rich kids, spies and metal G-Shocks.

    This episode is brought to you by G-Shock Australia. Felix gives us the run-down on the GM-2100-1A and discovers a festive pair of limited editions. To learn more about the G-Shock, head to g-shockaustralia.com.au

  • Today we chat to one of the founding fathers of Aussie hip hop, the mighty MC Bliss (also known as Jonathan Notley) from Bliss n Eso. We talk about the origins of Bliss n Eso, their latest album The Sun and what makes Aussie hip hop unique, and how it’s evolving. Of course, we talk about the special relationship hip hop has to watches, and how G-Shock has remained relevant in a genre known for its love of flex. On the topic of G-Shock Bliss talks about some iconic Eminem moments and what it was like to do the first Aussie collaboration with the super-tough Japanese brand. Finally, we find out Bliss’s surprising connection to hit drama Succession, and Felix and Andy get a little spooky with some Halloween suggestions.

  • This episode is something a little bit different. Several weeks ago, Andy and Felix hosted a very special evening for Cartier — exploring the Maison’s watchmaking collections live in front of a select group of Australian guests. This presentation, which covered the importance of lines like Tank, Privé and fine watchmaking, explored the history and legacy of these collections as well as some highlight pieces, watches like the Tank Cintrée, through to more modern pieces like the innovative Tank Must Solarbeat. We also talk about the legendary Crash and show off an emerald-decked example. We also check out the Santos and find out why the Pantheré is such an important emblem for the brand. We also open up for questions, which is something we’ve never done before, great fun and definitely something we should do again.

    On top of all this, we will also upload the stream to our Youtube, so if you’ve ever wanted to see the watches we talk about or just check out Felix’s lockdown hair, this is the perfect opportunity.

    This episode is sponsored by Cartier, to learn more about the watches we discuss, visit your local boutique or head to cartier.com

  • Today’s guest is Blake Buettner, watch media veteran and Managing Editor of Worn & Wound. Given his day job at the leading value-driven watch site, we naturally spend a lot of time chatting about what a value watch looks like in 2021 and whether or not a watch with four or more zeros in the price tag can be ‘value’, On a related note we cover off the state of the micro-brand scene, and dive into two of the watch enthusiasts traditional darlings, Seiko and Grand Seiko, and what their rapid growth and changing focus (epitomised by the White Birch) means for the brand. We also find out how Blake is — indirectly — responsible for getting Andy into mechanical watches, what really makes for a daily wearer and the joy of clacky keyboards. All that plus Andy and Felix go hands-on with the Apple Watch Series 7.

  • Seven years ago, Silas Walton founded A Collected Man, and in that time, it has grown into one of the most respected names in high-end and independent watch sales. If you’re in the market something special, be it an upper-tier independent like F. P. Journe, a connoisseur-grade Cartier or investment-level Patek, A Collected Man is the place to go (it’s also a great place to go if you want to read some of Andy and Felix’s great articles) As Walton explains though, this wasn’t always the case — the digital landscape has changed dramatically in the last few years, quickly gaining credibility with brands and consumers alike. We also chart a change in Walton’s own tastes, from the moment he decided to take the plunge into a Patek Philippe reference 5940, to falling in love with independent watches and seeing their business potential. Time clearly proved him right, and we find out how Walton is less concerned with making the sale and more worried about managing their place in the market, as well as being careful not to hype their own supply. So whether you’re interested in the rise of independent and neo-vintage watches, or the business of how they’re bought or sold, you’ll want to listen to this.

  • Today on the pod, we chat with Collective Horology co-founder Gabe Reilly. And we’re speaking to Gabe for a very good reason because Collective has just teamed up with IWC to release the Pilot’s Watch Chronograph C.03, Which Reilly describes as a love letter to IWC. To be fair, he also describes it as that watch you would get if you time-travelled back to IWC in the mid-90s, kidnapped the design team and brought them back to 2021. Thankfully for all involved, no time-shenanigans were involved in this watch. IWC still has a decidedly no-nonsense aesthetic, and Mr Klaus and Mr Habring haven’t been pruned from the timeline.

    We also find out how Cartier and James Bond got Reilly into watches, and explore how community has changed over time – as well as what stayed the same. Finally, Felix and Andy have some profound realisations about the nature of their working relationship. As you do.

  • Adrian Barker (from Bark & Jack) is back! We get the inside story on all the YouTube drama, from increasing collaboration to the poorly planned implosion of the Timepiece Gentlemen, and the negative effect it had on the broader watch community. We also get Adrian’s take on just why so many watch YouTubers are having videos removed. Is it the algorithm or something more sinister? Moving onto watches, we find out what Adrian thought of the two-tone Explorer and the new Vacheron Constantin ‘Everest’ editions.

    Felix also called Adrian out for trash-talking Hublot. So if you’ve ever wondered who would win in a fight between Felix and Adrian, listen in (hint, the answer is Andy).

  • Andy first met Jonathan Ferrer from Brew Watches back in 2015, at the first Worn & Wound Wind Up Watch fair. And while Brew’s heart can still be found in a good cup of coffee, the brand has evolved and matured with the times. We talk to Jonathan about balancing growth while staying true to the brand vision. Jonathan also talks about the founding impetus for Brew, built off his work as a freelance watch designer and the importance of coming out of the gate strong, with a powerful silhouette that triggers nostalgia.

    We also get into the nuts and bolts of a small watch business, the importance of social media, how to balance stock and customer expectations, as well as why Brew went all out with the bracelet of the Metric, which is unusually complicated for a $400 watch.

  • Robin Swithinbank’s Instagram bio reads that he’s on the frontline of luxury journalism — a position he’s held fearlessly for the last 20 years. We managed to pry Robin away from New York Times, Hodinkee and GQ deadlines to talk about the changes he’s witnessed in the previous two decades, and the changes he sees coming. With the rise of sustainability and e-sports, through to the vulgarity of watches as an asset class and rebranding the secondary market, Robin has a well-informed take on the space that only experience can bring. Often we get swept up in the details of product and can forget to analyse the macro level – where the industry is going and what existential problems it faces — not with Robin. If you’re interested in the big picture on the business of watches, this is one you won’t want to miss.

  • This week we’re excited to have Shawn Stockman from Boyz II Men back, and for a very good reason. We’re auctioning off a limited edition SevenFriday x Micah’s Voice T1/02. All funds raised support Stockman’s charity which works to support autistic children. We also talk about Shawn’s latest pickups, from Tudor, AP and Rolex as well as some straight talk on Richard Mille, as inspired by Diddy.

    How the auction works

    This limited edition SevenFriday x Micah’s Voice (valued at $988 USD) will be auctioned off on our Instagram account. Bidding will be via comments on a post published at 8 AM AEST 11/09/21, with a starting bid of $500 AUD. The auction will end at 8 AM AEST 12/09/21. New bids made within five minutes of the closing time will add a further five minutes to the deadline to allow counter-bids. Bids in AUD, but the watch can be shipped globally. The winner will be DM’d a link to purchase, with the sale to be completed within 24 hours.

    The winning bid will receive the limited edition watch, signed care package and thank you call from Shawn Stockman. If the auction results in 5x the retail price of the watch, Shawn Stockman will sing you a song. 100% of proceeds from the sale will be donated to Micah’s Voice.

    Thanks to SevenFriday Australia for making this auction possible.
