You Hodinkee Don't You?

Got into watches since last year, and Hodinkee turns out to be one of the best communities when it comes to watching talks. Currently, I have an Aqua Terra 8500, a JLC Reverso, and a 70s Wittnauer. Been thinking about getting an Explorer now, and hopefully I would be able to get one after next summer.

Kinda off the topic but it's just stunning to see how Ben developed himself from an analyst at UBS to the face of the watch world, the man behind HODINKEE. Personally, I listen to every single HODINKEE radio on Spotify and wish I could have the imagination and courage to start my own side business (I collect vintage clothes and Native American jewels) someday.

Cheers!

I saw a guy on the train with what I assume was a 41mm Aqua Terra this weekend and I was just like F--- that's big. I'll just keep buying watches in the upper 30s like the 38mm Islander (microbrand) Tiffany blue I was wearing that day.

The only difference between Asset Management and Investment Research is assets. I generally see somebody I know on TV on Bloomberg/CNBC etc. once or twice a week. This sounds cool, until I remind myself that I see somebody I know on ESPN five days a week.

36 can feel a little small at times depending on the watch.

Yea I'd stay with the classic sizes. I have a 6.5 wrist, and anything larger than 38 is too much. Up until now, I find my 33mm reverso to be the best fit on my wrist. (yes, I admit I am more on the feminine side when it comes to the overall style and stuff)
