Welcome to Episode 26 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - this week I sat down with Jason to talk about his watch collecting journey, the lessons he's learned along the way, the ones he hasn't, and to remind him that watches are not investments.
When I'm writing notes before and interview, I try to build a theme around the collector in question's watches. It could be that all the watches are from a brand, that they came from various trips, or milestones, or just that they're things their owner was drawn to.
This week, things seemed to split into 4 distinct groups:
- Stupid but... lucky?
- Seamasters for Fathers
- Down the Internet Rabbit Hole
- Future Classics
I'm sure we've all bought and owned watches from the first and third categories, and hope we're currently holding them from the fourth!
