    At the end, Roy says he knows what’s coming but wasn’t allowed to say. I didn’t know if this interview was before or after the gold 50th Apollo was announced so I DM’d in instsgram to clarify. He said it wasn’t the gold 50th so I’m assuming it has something to do with the c321 :)

    Oh boy ... I'm all ::popcorn::

    FWIW : if you are fortunate enough to meet these gentlemen, this kind of enthusiasm and openness is what you will always get, no matter who you are :thumbsup:

    Yes, watched this and came to the conclusion that they were a couple of good eggs; a couple of good eggs with some exceptional Speedmasters! Well worth watching.

    Nice vid and amazing collection. Collection is akin to Stalh's in the Rolex world.

    I enjoyed the video. I immediately reached for my Ed White and wore it the rest of the day.

    And on expanding vintage to end of tritium...the reasoning makes sense to me.

    That was lovely. Can't believe I watched a 45 minute geek-out about Speedmasters.

    I admit watching the video over and over. That blue Base 1000 bezel is such a killer. Would love to pay a visit to their shop in Geneva one day.

    We’ve been saying that for some years now

    The private collection is not visible at the shop ;) but the Speedmaster box is 90% of time worth the trip :)

    This is so painful to watch... He can say a damned "yes" every 2 freakin seconds. I'm irritated right now.

    Good to know.

    I'm 60% vintage following that criteria.

    Here is my first Omega. Purchased in 2012, when I thought I was buying a modem watch. Now it is vintage. :) It is a 3572.50.

    The "Private Collection" is probably in a big ass vault. Any ideas as to the total value of their "Private Collection"?

    you guys are REALLY good at picking holes in people’s performance from behind your keyboards.
    Bravo.

    Yes I’m a big fan of Wei. Think the videos are great. And he loves dachshunds!

    i dont know what it says on chrono24, but i have bought 2 spectacular pieces from them and they stand behind their watches. one they bought back from me at a very reasonable price when my tastes changed. no. .they will never be the cheap guy in the market (see offices in cosy part of zurich)

    And I think he is doing a great service (and job) in reaching out to people about watch collecting; particularly Omega. Without him, none of us would have had the pleasure of seeing those amazing collector grade examples.

    I can't really understand how your comment is relevant in any way. Why sound agressive like this ? You can't criticize anything if you can't do it ? Do I have to be an actor to dare criticizing the acting in a movie ?
    This video is indeed interesting, the watches presented are awesome, I beg your pardon for agreeing that Wei Koh's punctuating every 3 words the brothers say with "yes" and "awesome" is very irritating.
