I’ve to begin this text by admitting to the truth that regardless of a basic disdain for actuality TV, one in every of my favourite reveals is Top Chef. I’ve been watching it since season one, I’ve by no means missed a season, I’ve even not too long ago rewatched a few of the earlier seasons only for the hell of it. Proper now, Season 17 is at the moment airing, and each week I eagerly await every new episode. Naturally, as a watch man, I additionally take discover of the watches the contestants and company put on. Sometimes, there isn’t something too surprising. A Sub right here, a Panerai there, although within the present season chef Kevin Gillespie prominently wears a Tudor Pelagos on a nylon strap, which Hodinkee beat me to the punch on writing up.
However the different week there was a watch that basically caught my consideration, because it took me a while to determine it out. On the wrist of visitor decide and world-famous chef, Jonathan Waxman was a sq. watch with a shiny teal dial… However what was it? Even higher than instantly recognizing a watch in a film or present is when it’s a puzzle that will get revealed slowly. Once I noticed Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, determining the watch Brad Pitt was carrying was like a side-quest only for me. So, throughout this week’s episode, each time I caught a special approach of the watch, which conveniently had a number of moments in body, a bit extra information was revealed.
