With the heavy media focus on the Moonwatch and the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 this year, you could be forgiven for thinking that Omega produce nothing but manual wind chronographs, and that the only exploration they have been involved with required rockets and spacesuits. Equally, glancing at the ongoing surge in vintage, and limited edition modern Speedmaster prices, it seems that some collectors feel that if it wasn’t on the wrist of Aldrin, Armstrong, or Collins (or related to a watch they wore), that it’s not really worth hunting down. Pure lunacy. Today’s guest has pushed through the Moonwatch phase of his collecting madness, and donned mask, flippers, and snorkel, to explore the depths of Omega’s vast vintage catalogue. His focus pulled from Omega watches that splashed down into the ocean on the wrists of engineers, scientists and explorers, to Omega watches that went deep under the oceans surface on the wrists of engineers, scientists, and explorers. Horological tools that couldn’t be more different. Although those cases do look incredibly similar...

It’s early June, the show you're about to listen to has been sat in various states of draft since the end of March, and we haven’t been on the air since February. (Please forgive me if things are a little bit rusty!) Today, we’re going to talk about the podcast, the events, how things are funded (hint: it involves me and you), and because this is a show about watch collecting, 4 new watches that I’ve added to my personal stash. Watches discussed on this episode: Omega CK2300 Accurist Schockmaster Chronograph (Landeron 248) Omega flightmaster 145.036 Omega flightmaster 145.026 Head to https://www.time4apint.com/podcast/the-time-4a-pint-podcast-episode-50 for pictures and show notes.

Head back to the 1960s and 70s, and if you were buying a watch designed for professional diving, you were more likely to wear suits made from form fitting neoprene, than hand tailored wool to your place of work. Thankfully the professional tool watches that found their way into hands of COMEX and Cousteau, were incredibly rugged, and incredibly water resistant - So those of us that are more comfortable behind a desk, than in a diving bell, can enjoy them today. Not that either today’s guest, or myself are likely to be found wearing a suit, or being allowed to undertake any serious diving for that matter - Frankly, there’s more chance of us knowing the Greek word for “the depth of the ocean”. Which is Benthos, in case you were wondering. A piece of information that may prove useful in around 20 minutes time. Watches discussed on this episode: Eterna-Matic Super KonTiki 130FTP Eterna-Matic Super KonTiki IDF Issued Certina DS-2 Super PH 500M Certina DS-3 Super PH1000M Aquastar Benthos 500 (10-50 bezel) Aquastar Benthos 500 (decompression bezel) Head to https://www.time4apint.com/podcast/the-time-4a-pint-podcast-episode-49 for pictures and show notes.

Welcome to Episode 48 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I got together with Colin, long term watch collector (and longer term Formula One fan), to talk about the (metaphorical) collision of his passions for Horology and Motorsport, and the ensuing (actual) explosion of Heuer Chronographs!

Welcome to Episode 47 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - Ever since the first episode aired in April 2017, people have been sending me messages, asking about my watches. What do I have? What have I sold? What do I like? What doesn’t do it for me? What’s next on the list? And whilst answers to those questions, and more, have been woven into to the conversations that I’ve had with guests over the last 46 shows, there was no single place where I just got to talk about my stuff. So this week I set out to change that, and Invited friend of the show Jonas over to drink some beers, eat some pizza, and talk about the 6 watches which make up the core of my collection. There are some mistakes in here, some questions I just don’t have answers to, and I’m sure I got some things totally back to front, but hey, I never claimed to be an expert. I’m just a guy who likes watches. And beer and pizza. Clearly. Watches on this episode: 2002 Omega Speedmaster Professional (reference 3570.50.00) 2002-2006 Omega Speedmaster Professional X-33 Second Generation (reference 3291.50.00) 1974 Omega Speedsonic (reference 188.0002) 1969 Omega flightmaster Cal. 910 (reference 145.013) 1971 Omega flightmaster Cal. 911 (reference 145.026) 2013 Omega Speedmaster Professional Racing "TinTin" (reference 311.30.42.30.01.004) Head to https://www.time4apint.com/podcast/the-time-4a-pint-podcast-episode-47 for pictures and show notes.

Welcome to Episode 46 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I got together with Ben, blogger for 8 Past 10, and watch enthusiast (not collector... or so he thinks!), to drink beers and talk watches. This show was a fantastically quick turnaround, from a very brief chat over a beer on Friday, to a recording (and a couple more beers) on the following Wednesday. And up to the point where the recorder started rolling, I had no idea where the conversation was going to go, or what we were going to talk about. Pretty much the same position you guys are in at the start of each show. Cheers. Head to https://www.time4apint.com/podcast/the-time-4a-pint-podcast-episode-46 for pictures and show notes.

Welcome to Episode 45 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I got together with Alan, a watch collector who doesn't hang around on forums, or Instagram, and has been adding horological goodies to his stash for over 20 years, to hang out and talk watches. Starting out with all of Alan's watches laid out on a table, we spent four hours talking through what made sense to share, what made a good story, and what you, the listener would find most interesting to hear about. And after much negotiation we got down to the big 6 - a set of watches Alan would walk out the door with if his house were on fire. Probably. Enjoy.

Welcome to Episode 44 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I got together with Nicholas Bowman-Scargill, 4th Managing Director, and re-founder of the Fears Watch Company to drink tea, eat biscuits and talk about the first hand wound watch from Fears in more than 50 years! Tune in to hear about the re-establishment of what was the West of England's largest watchmaker, and the journey Nick has taken in the development, construction, and launch of the small production marvel of British engineering that is the Fears Brunswick.

Welcome to Episode 42 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I sat down for a chat with Aris, to talk about two iconic watch movements, and a selection of the automatic chronographs from his collection that make use of them. From Sinn, to Tudor, Lorenz, and Lemania, each of the watches we talked about contains either a Valjoux 7750, or a Lemania 5100. Two tried and tested workhorses, wrapped up inside six rugged, and beautiful tool watches. Get ready to add a few more timepieces to that wish list.

Welcome to Episode 41 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I ventured into the world of Antiquarian Horology, and English pocket watches, with knowledgable and incredibly patient watchmaker, Seth Kennedy. Seth brought along a selection of the tools he uses when working on the timepieces of the past, along with a few watches from his own collection, including two that he has hand crafted brand new, sterling silver cases for. For the wags who felt that the modern British watches on episode 39 weren’t quite British enough, hopefully the pieces on today’s show will satisfy your patriotic urges!

Welcome to Episode 39 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I met up with Jonathan, to talk about four modern British watches, that caught his eye, stole his heart, and made their way into his watch box. The first two from smaller scale independents, the third from a company that’s supplied watches to the Ministry of Defence for over 4 decades, and the fourth from an internationally known brand that’s sold alongside it’s Swiss contemporaries in retailers around the world. All different, and yet all sharing a uniquely British Character.

Welcome to Episode 38 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I caught up with Arwind, an early Time 4A Pint attendee, and man who embodies the core value of Time 4A Pint, as a drinking club with a watch problem. Whilst we recorded today’s show during the day, and drank nothing more than tea, the watch problem persisted, and things got kind of nerdy, and before we knew what was going on there were El Primeros everywhere. A nice problem to have.

Welcome to Episode 37 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week I was out in Karlsruhe, Germany, for the Chrono24 get together, and through a mix of good luck, good timing, and other people being much more organised, got to sit down with Eric Wind for a chat. Hear how Eric went from being an enthusiastic amateur, to regular contributor for Hodinkee, to Vice President, Senior Specialist of Watches at Christie's New York, and is now running his own vintage watch business, Wind Vintage. Oh, and we talked about some of his watches too!

Welcome to Episode 36 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - For those of you that are listening to this show as it comes out each week, you might be wondering what’s going on. There was supposed to be a two week break between the last show and this one, and there was a weird gap between episodes 34 and 35. And a post on instagram that looked somewhat… medical. Well the good news is, that I am on the mend, and this week I’m going to bring you up to speed on everything that’s been going on since we last had a catchup back in November, and share with you some of the things that will be happening over the coming weeks. Correction: In the audio, Chris refers to Lot 188 as a Panerai Luminor, it is a Radiomir Panerai. We would like to apologise for this error.

Welcome to Episode 35 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - For this week's show, I spent an evening with Nathan, talking about his transition from vintage vinyl, to watch collecting, and the friends he's made along the way. With 5 pieces on the table, each with a background story linking it into the wider watch collecting community, it's fair to say that Nathan is collecting with a little help from his friends.

Welcome to Episode 34 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week we got together with Jonas, to talk about some of the military pieces within his eclectic collection.

Welcome to Episode 33 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week we spent an afternoon with Mister James Dowling, Rolex aficionado, and not so secret lover of the Beta 21, talking about the high end electronic movement from the past, and the futuristic watches that it was fitted to. With fifteen Beta 21 equipped watches on the table, we focused on some of James' favourites, including models from Patek Philippe, Rolex, IWC, and Rado - vastly different watches, with identical movements.

Welcome to Episode 32 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - This week we grabbed a beer with Ollie, a vintage watch collector, who doesn't currently have any of his vintage watches (they're all away being repaired), to talk about two of the most popular limited edition pieces to be released in 2017, the Omega Speedmaster Speedy Tuesday, and the Halios Seaforth. They're from different ends of spectrum in terms of production location, retail price, and size of the businesses behind them. And very honestly, they're very different watches in many ways. That said, they do share some key characteristics - they're a pair of tool watches that were released on the internet, are equally endowed with epic amounts of super-luminova, and both look as at home in the pub, as they do out diving or exploring outer space respectively. We think they make rather an attractive pair of Horological Sisters from (very) Different Misters.  Head to https://www.time4apint.com/podcast/the-time-4a-pint-podcast-episode-32 for pictures and show notes.

Stuart kindly brought along two versions of the 376.0822, one all original, the other with service parts, and shared with us what to look for when trying to evaluate this uncommon Speedmaster from the 1980s.

Welcome to Episode 26 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - this week I sat down with Jason to talk about his watch collecting journey, the lessons he's learned along the way, the ones he hasn't, and to remind him that watches are not investments.  When I'm writing notes before and interview, I try to build a theme around the collector in question's watches. It could be that all the watches are from a brand,  that they came from various trips, or milestones, or just that they're things their owner was drawn to. This week, things seemed to split into 4 distinct groups: Stupid but... lucky? Seamasters for Fathers Down the Internet Rabbit Hole Future Classics I'm sure we've all bought and owned watches from the first and third categories, and hope we're currently holding them from the fourth!

Welcome to Episode 24 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast - this week we dragged ourselves off the sofa, got dosed up on cold and flu remedies, and headed out to meet Nathan, who like us was valiantly fighting a serious case of man-flu. And, very much like us, spends hours looking at shiny time keeping devices on Instagram. After discovering the shear volume of watch pictures being shared by collectors, dealers, and enablers alike, Nathan's collecting turned from fashion brands, to an eclectic, but well appointed selection of timepieces old, and new, that appeal to him. Great Stuff. Watches on the week's show: Rolex Submariner 14060M Rado Captain Cook LE Ref. 01.763.0500.3.130 Jacques Monnat Chronograph (Valjoux 7736) Breitling Sprint Chronograph Ref. 2010 aka.
