Grand Seiko Godzilla, Seiko’s new chronographs, Mike’s new gold Speedmaster and the watches that our wives wear: Episode 6 of our podcast is now online. Available on Buzzsprout, Soundcloud, Apple Podcast, Google Podcast and Spotify.
Michael Stockton and Robert-Jan Broer talk about the new Breitling Avenger, SuperOcean and Aviator 8 Mosquito watches that were introduced last week in Zurich, Switzerland. But first, the wrist check (as always). RJ is wearing a Grand Seiko Mt Iwate (SBGJ201) and Michael is boosting his brand new Omega Speedmaster Professional Apollo XI in Moonshine gold.
And talking about that, Mike and RJ are discussing whether it would make sense for Omega to re-introduce a Speedmaster Professional in 18-ct gold in the regular collection. It was in the collection previously but discontinued in 2012. With the recent demand for (vintage) gold Speedmasters, it might make sense to have it back in the collection.
We also share thoughts on the new Seiko Presage Chronograph and Seiko Prospex Chronograph, for the 50th anniversary of Seiko’s automatic chronograph movements. Michael isn’t blown away by them, to say the least. The Grand Seiko Godzilla that was introduced last week also gets discussed. RJ likes the colors and Grand Seiko case design but has no link to Godzilla. The price of €12.700,- is being discussed as well, as it is definitely putting certain things in a different perspective. Last but not least, Mike and RJ answer a reader’s question: What watches are your wives wearing? Admittedly, they have been heavily influenced by us, but what are the watches they are wearing and were these really their choices?
Please find below some of the watches mentioned in the podcast.
