This time, Balazs and Mike welcome a really particular visitor from the icy North. Fellow Fratello member Jorg Weppelink graces the mic alongside the duo along with his ideas on the present development of supposedly uncommon and unique watches.
Sure, we contact on a subject that’s prime of thoughts for a lot of watch collectors and that’s this concept of uncommon and unique watches. We’ve so many questions! Is it silly once we name a watch such because the Submariner “uncommon”? Would we snap up a metal Rollie at retail? Do we predict this present development of discovering scores of supposedly unobtainable watches on the gray market is a bit ridiculous? What will we take into consideration burgeoning manufacturers like MING or Unimatic that purposely restrict manufacturing? And at last, how does early aughts rapper Fats Joe come into this?
