In this week’s episode of ASKTNH LIVE, Christian tackles the hardest hitting questions of the week from the watchfam over on our Instagram (@theoandharris, wink wink).
The first of these questions deals with the HODINKEE collaboration with Swatch to bring not just a KILLER design of a Sistem51 to life, but also the first truly accessible HODINKEE collaboration piece in the history of the company. From there, we take a short side trip to the land of Rolex Turn-O-Graphs, before diving head first into the main topic of this week’s episode.
A viewer asked Christian what the deal is with vintage chronographs, specifically those that have chrome plated cases rather than straight steel. This question is a reasonable one, no doubt, but it speaks to a much larger issue concerning the bubble bursting in the vintage watch market. Ultimately, Christian concedes that yes, the bubble is eventually going to burst, but it may not impact some of your (and our) favorite brands the way it will some niche brands (or relatively niche, within the context of vintage watches).
