Fratello On Air returns after a bit of a layoff, and we discuss a number of things, including the new IWC Ingenieur. We’re glad to be back with you, and we hope you enjoy today’s candid show!

Folks, we’re sorry that we’ve been away for so long, but vacation, travel, and visitors have gotten in the way. Now, though, we’re here and ready to discuss all sorts of topics. The new IWC Ingenieur is the greatest focus, but we talk about loads of other subjects. We kick it all off with some news about travel, a pair of game-worn Jordans, New Era MLB hats, and a visit to the mall in Boca Raton.

Chronograph 1970s

Handgelenks Kontrolle

The Handgelenks Kontrolle is back, and Balazs goes first with the new Vulcain Chronograph 1970’s. Mike is wearing his newly received MING 22.01 GMT Gilt. This leads to discussions about a possible acquisition in Balazs’s future!

High-End Integrated Sports Watch

The IWC Ingenieur and other new watches

We start the main part of the episode with a bit of Watches and Wonders talk. Balazs was on the ground while Mike was writing about some of the new releases. We talk about the new TAG Heuer Carrera, Zenith Defy Shadow, and all the Tudor pieces. Then it’s onto the new IWC Ingenieur, and there’s a lot of disappointment from the team. Oh, don’t get us wrong, we like the watch, but we’re somewhat confused by the marketing strategy. Announcing a shortage before the watches hit the street feels wrong, especially for a watch that so many have wanted. Finally, we end with some of our favorite watches from the show. Vacheron Constantin, Laurent Ferrier, and Rolex make the list!

We hope you enjoy today’s episode, and we look forward to recording again for next week. As always, if you have any ideas for future shows, please let us know!
