Get ready for a winding episode for this week’s Fratello On Air! Balazs and Mike return after a one-week hiatus with news from the road. Enjoy this open discussion!

Mike has been on the road for much of the last month and Balazs is gearing up to leave. Movement around the globe forms part of today’s episode along with a couple of news bits. As always, though, it’s time to start with a Handgelenks Kontrolle.

Speedmaster Tintin investment

Handgelenks Kontrolle

Balazs is sporting the new Nivada Datomaster Mecaquartz and we discuss this affordable entry model. We also muse about how this watch looks like the Nivada Dato 4368 that Tomas reviewed for #TBT. Mike has pulled out his Omega Speedmaster Professional “TinTin” and decided to put it on the original bracelet for the first time in years. We’re not sure how long that will last!

Travel and the news

We spend some time talking about the news. Specifically, we mention the new IWC Pilot’s Watch for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team. That sparks a conversation about racing in general. Then, we discuss shipping woes, including lost and stolen packages. Regarding travel, we talk about some of the most common watches we see while moving through airports. Mike brings up the enduring Rolex GMT-Master II reference 16710 and 15-to-20-year-old Speedies. Balazs talks about Breitling. Finally, Mike mentions a quick coffee with Jason Heaton in Minneapolis and the Vertex AquaLion he was wearing.

As always, we thank you for listening! We’re ready to discuss another brand, so if you have any suggestions, please feel free to let us know!
