Welcome to Episode 41 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I ventured into the world of Antiquarian Horology, and English pocket watches, with knowledgable and incredibly patient watchmaker, Seth Kennedy. Seth brought along a selection of the tools he uses when working on the timepieces of the past, along with a few watches from his own collection, including two that he has hand crafted brand new, sterling silver cases for.

Welcome to Episode 39 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I met up with Jonathan, to talk about four modern British watches, that caught his eye, stole his heart, and made their way into his watch box. The first two from smaller scale independents, the third from a company that’s supplied watches to the Ministry of Defence for over 4 decades, and the fourth from an internationally known brand that’s sold alongside it’s Swiss contemporaries in retailers around the world.

Welcome to Episode 38 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I caught up with Arwind, an early Time 4A Pint attendee, and man who embodies the core value of Time 4A Pint, as a drinking club with a watch problem. Whilst we recorded today’s show during the day, and drank nothing more than tea, the watch problem persisted, and things got kind of nerdy, and before we knew what was going on there were El Primeros everywhere. A nice problem to have. Watches on this week's show: Zenith El...

Welcome to Episode 37 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I was out in Karlsruhe, Germany, for the Chrono24 get together, and through a mix of good luck, good timing, and other people being much more organised, got to sit down with Eric Wind for a chat.

Welcome to Episode 36 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - For those of you that are listening to this show as it comes out each week, you might be wondering what’s going on. There was supposed to be a two week break between the last show and this one, and there was a weird gap between episodes 34 and 35. And a post on instagram that looked somewhat… medical. Well the good news is, that I am on the mend, and this week I’m going to bring you up to speed on everything that’s been going on since we...

Welcome to Episode 35 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - For this week's show, I spent an evening with Nathan, talking about his transition from vintage vinyl, to watch collecting, and the friends he's made along the way. With 5 pieces on the table, each with a background story linking it into the wider watch collecting community, it's fair to say that Nathan is collecting with a little help from his friends.

Welcome to Episode 33 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week we spent an afternoon with Mister James Dowling, Rolex aficionado, and not so secret lover of the Beta 21, talking about the high end electronic movement from the past, and the futuristic watches that it was fitted to. With fifteen Beta 21 equipped watches on the table, we focused on some of James' favourites, including models from Patek Philippe, Rolex, IWC, and Rado - vastly different watches, with identical movements.

They're from different ends of spectrum in terms of production location, retail price, and size of the businesses behind them. And very...

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...

Welcome to Episode 24 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - this week we dragged ourselves off the sofa, got dosed up on cold and flu remedies, and headed out to meet Nathan, who like us was valiantly fighting a serious case of man-flu. And, very much like us, spends hours looking at shiny time keeping devices on Instagram. After discovering the shear volume of watch pictures being shared by collectors, dealers, and enablers alike, Nathan's collecting turned from fashion brands, to an eclectic, but...
