Fratello Talks: Our Watches and Wonders Hits And Misses (Rolex, TAG Heuer, Cartier, IWC, And More)
Lex, Daan, and RJ discuss the watches that impressed them the most at Watches And Wonders as well as those that failed to spark their enthusiasm. They discuss the titanium Rolex Yacht-Master 42 in detail, first because it is very cool (according to Lex) but also very far away from previous Yacht-Masters (according to RJ). Here are the hits and misses from the Watches And Wonders 2023 edition!
During this podcast, Lex is wearing the Timor Heritage Field ATP. He covered the watch in this article and explained its strong connection to the military pieces commissioned in 1939 by the British War Office. Daan is wearing the white gold Breguet Classique (34.5mm) that he bought a few months ago. He has been wearing this watch on a very regular basis in the office but also wore it during Watches and Wonders a few weeks ago. Lastly, RJ is wearing the Omega Speedmaster H10, which celebrated the 10th anniversary of Hodinkee back in 2018. It was a gift to our founder RJ from Ben Clymer, his longtime friend. The H10 was inspired by the first real watch that Ben Clymer owned (and still does), the Speedmaster Mk40.
The Watches and Wonders 2023 debrief continues
Last week, Nacho, Sinara, and Daan already covered their favorites from Watches and Wonders 2023. They also shared their experience of going to Geneva to cover the new releases. This week, Lex, RJ, and Daan take a different route and talk about the hits and misses of Watches and Wonders 2023, including a special focus on the all-titanium Rolex Yacht-Master 42. This watch surprised all to varying degrees, even though it received some exposure a while ago on social media when we saw a prototype on a rubber strap. We also mention some other watches and brands that surprised us in good and not-so-good ways. Hear our thoughts on watches from TAG Heuer, Cartier, Louis Moinet, IWC, and more.
