This week on the podcast, Blake Buettner, Zach Weiss, and Zach Kazan are discussing some of the recent new releases that have caught our collective eye in the month of August. There’s a lot of Grand Seiko activity to discuss, including some new US exclusive limited editions at an affordable price point, and some flagship Spring Drive releases that have the watch community buzzing. There’s also the matter of a new four-way collaboration between Habring, Massena LAB, J.N. Shapiro, and the Horological Society of New York, which produced not only a beautiful and interesting watch (that sold out almost immediately) but provided a preview of the potential for great things to come from the HSNY and the independent watch community. Speaking of collaborations, the latest release from Oris and Hodinkee is discussed as well, along with our hottest possible takes on the pricing of Oris’s latest watches with their in-house caliber.
