Episode 36: Fratello On Air — Arcanaut In The Building
Welcome once more to the house of horological hilarity. Rob returns in the host’s chair. He welcomes back James Thompson (AKA Black Badger) who has invited his friend and collaborator Anders Brandt, co-founder and chief designer of Danish brand Arcanaut, to join the show. Needless to say, shenanigans ensued.
An Irishman, a Canadian, and a Dane walk into a bar… It sounds like the opening line of a bad joke, but it might well be the perfect set-up of what is an amusing, far-reaching conversation that flips from the serious to the surreal with little warning.
This unholy trio discusses the benefits of being sociable, why one should never attempt to drink a Dane under the table, and their next business venture, which involves capturing and milking Finnish watchmakers for their rare and delicious mustache wax. Yep. It was a slow day at the office…
On a more serious note, Anders shares the philosophy behind Arcanaut watches and his hopes for the brand’s future. James pitches in with the kind of enthusiasm every young brand needs to find its footing in the watchmaking world. If you’d like to join in with the discussion, hit us up in the comments below with your thoughts and feelings. And don’t forget to give Arcanaut an idea of what you’d like to see from the brand next! Happy listening.
*No Finnish watchmakers were harmed in the making of this Podcast. Rob, however, was seriously injured.
