Author: theurbangentry

Description: In this month's #WatchTalk episode, I'm joined once again by my good friend and watch industry expert Marc from Long Island Watch.

We discuss watches you (and we) love to hate, the controversy around them, and why some brands are so loathed. We also examine why we dislike certain watches, along with an in-depth look at some of the worst aspects of watch journalism in this social media age.
