Talking Watches

May 11, 2016

If you haven’t been following Hodinkee’s Talking Watches, you’re missing out. It’s a running web series – now twenty-one episodes deep – where the site’s founder Ben Clymer interviews interesting watch collectors from around the world. Granted, the world of horology can sometimes be a bit dense and hard to understand for neophytes like me, but these episodes are always engaging for anyone with an eye for design.

Especially this week’s episode with Roni Madhvani, who collects vintage timepieces based on their case designs. Hard to pick a favorite here, but this Markowski case and Gilbert Albert-designed Patek have to be contenders. You can watch the video above or visit Hodinkee for the full story.

Another one of my favorite episodes: the one with watch author John Goldberger.
