Fratello On Air: Picking Watches For Each Other — Rolex And Citizen
This episode of Fratello On Air was recorded on the eve of Watches and Wonders. We talk about a couple of the newest releases before turning to our main topic. We choose an accessory, an article of clothing, and a watch for each other. After so many years and countless episodes, can we get it right?
Yep, we’re picking watches for each other along with an accessory and a piece of clothing. First, though, we hit upon some of the releases at Watches and Wonders. The new IWC Ingenieur, the TAG Heuer Carrera Glassbox, and even the Biver debut pieces make our discussion.
Before we start picking watches for each other, we walk through the Handgelenks Kontrolle. Balazs starts things off from Bari, Italy with the Fratello × Nivada Grenchen Racing Chronograph. He’s rocking the reverse panda while enjoying the heat. Mike is wearing a watch that he bought in 1994, an automatic Omega Seamaster 120m Chronometer reference 2301.21.00. Almost 30 years later, the gold bezel has turned a bronze-like color, which works well with a burgundy Horween shell cordovan strap.
Choosing watches for each other
We get into our main topic by starting off with some accessories. Balazs found a cool Rimowa-like AirPods holder and thinks Mike would enjoy it as well. For Balazs, Mike recommends the iconic Chris Reeve small Sebenza 31 Plain Insingo. It’s a no-nonsense tool that should last several lifetimes. For clothing, Balazs stumbled upon pieces from Felco while Mike recommends Western shirts from his favorite clothier, Double RL. When it comes to the main event, Balazs digs deep and plays to Mike’s love of Japanese watches with the limited-edition Citizen “The Citizen” NC0206-18E. Mike goes old-school and feels that it’s high time for Balazs to add a classic Rolex Submariner 5513 Maxi Dial to his collection.
