Today on Rant&H, I dove into the world of affordable mechanical watches. Whether a $50 quartz watch, Swatch automatic or a big brass case, I think the watches I brought forth today represent great value and, even more importantly, distinct steps into new worlds of watchmaking. While wearing a bronze Archimiede might not make you a watch geek veteran, it undoubtedly opens your eyes to the idea of alternative case materials, for example. This episode is all about thinking differently, understanding what a dollar should return in modern watches. (Oh, and yes, The Seiko SARB deserves a spot between the Swatch Sistem 51 and the Stowa Partitio!)
