With The Horological Minute, Eric Ku and 10 Past Ten engage in a fascinating dialog with collectors and members of the watch industry, as they discuss anything and everything about watches. Think of it as the Proust Questionnaire for the watch aficionado.
My first watch was a Michael Johnson limited edition SWATCH which my dad found recently. I must have been 9-10 years old when it was given to me and I was obsessed. I still have it today in completely original condition with no polish, original dial and strap :)•
The last watch I bought was a Omega Speedmaster 2998-1 with a very charming patina and deep chocolate brown dial. I am obsessed.•
Vintage all the way Eric!!! This bug is a hard one to shake…..•
I ate at O YA in Boston with my fiance. We got the 17 course Omakase which was out of this world; if you are a foodie and are visiting Boston for a few nights this place is a must.•
I was wearing a Zenith A386 which took me years to find. I missed out on 5 of them before I landed the one I currently own and love.•
I love that no 2 watches are alike. No matter what the reference, there is always something unique about that individual piece. Hunting the right vintage Rolex that suits your own tastes or “requirements” is what I love about collecting.•
I was a strap guy until I saw how awesome all these vintage watches look on bracelets. Over the past year, I have been really enjoying GF style / JB Champion bracelets.•
I am passionate about dive watches and chronographs so I have to go with Submariner on this one followed by Daytona as a close second place.•
I think people are anticipating a ceramic bezel Daytona which would be a huge hit I am sure. I would love to see a few steel sports models in a 38mm case for those of us who are human and want a watch that fits the wrist. Sky dweller complication in a steel sport model would also be a hit, in my opinion.•
I would say the most interesting watch I own is this Blancpain Fifty Fathoms “Demo” Milspec 1 which was made as a civilian version of the well known radium model. There were very few of these made with the microbile case with the hash mark bezel. I love the watch!!•
On my wrist today is a Heuer Carerra 2447 SN in the on my favorite high polish, straight end link bracelet.
