For episode 57 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast, I got together with Tokyo based Eric Skier, also known as "Jewpanese Dude".
Originally from the United States, Eric has been living in Japan since 1991. He is a 5th degree blackbelt in Kendo, who enjoys living a simple life, with friends, family, a cold beer or three, and some better than decent food.
We talked about his love for fine timepieces. Hunting out rarities in Japan. The risk of buying broken and obscure watches. 10 of the wonderful pieces in his personal collection, and two of the many that he’s helped pick up for friends:
