Collect "ing" Around Watches
Analog Explorer x Zulu Time Podcast joint episode
Dan is the host of the Zulu Time Podcast, based out of the UK, a military watch collector, an Analog Explorer alumni, and a very good friend of ours in the #watchfam.
In this two-part joint episode between the Zulu Time Podcast and the Analog Explorer, AJ and Dan take a look at the notion around Collecting Around Watches.
To listen to the whole hour and a half episode you will have to do a little collecting yourself.
Part one can be heard on the Zulu Time Podcast Ep. 61 | Link.
And now, onto this second part: On this episode Dan and AJ are diving into the topic from the lens of the recent Cole Pennington (Hodinkee) wrote in the article “Buying, Selling, & Collecting So You Collect Watches, But What Else? This Is How You Make The Hobby More Fun.” Check out the Link and see if you can spot the mention (and patch) of the Zulu Time Podcast Cole’s article.

Most of his books were about mountaineering and geography. His works include Banner in the Sky, which was a book based on the true story of the first climbing of the Matterhorn (it was filmed in Switzerland as Third Man on the Mountain), and The White Tower (which would star Glenn Ford and Lloyd Bridges).
