Podcast Episode N.37: Watch Snobs, Dressing with Dignity and Gene Wilder’s Willy Wonka

In this episode, I respond to some readers’ reactions to an article about a new affordable automatic tool watch that resembles similar watches on the luxury spectrum. I also share a few anecdotes about how dressing with a sense of occasion served me very well. The last segment is about what Gene Wilder’s performance as Willy Wonka meant to me as a young boy.

  1. I loved your comments about the jackasses who look down upon the Hager watches you wrote a piece about. I purchased one of the Aquamariners and cannot wait to get it. I totally agree with you that pretty much everything out there is inspired by something that came before it. Nobody is forcing anyone to buy one of these which is why I don’t understand the snobs that act like we are committing a crime by buying one claiming they are “legal fakes.” Get over yourself. One of my favorite watches is a watch bought at Walmart for $9 on a striped NATO Strap. Put that in your Rolex/Tudor pipe and smoke it watch snobs!!!!
