    What watch topics and news are important to you right now?

    I work 7 days a week now and I find myself listening to a ton of podcasts to get through the day. I know there are some other watch podcasts out there, but I have been thinking about doing one myself, maybe with my old watch collecting grad school roommate, maybe just once every other two weeks or once a month. I like the casual conversation dynamic of the famous Stuff You Should Know so I would like to emulate it, but with news too.

    So while I consider doing this, I was thinking, what are some subjects you guys would want to be discussed? I mean there's the classic controversies, the ETA pullout, in house/outsourced, rolex v omega, etc etc, and I can touch on that, but anything less generic come to mind? Anything in watch news?

    I'll see about doing a pilot 30 minute podcast and if people like it maybe I'll do the series.

    I'd say the rebirth of Tudor is an interesting topic. They have done a nice job with retro designs.

    I like learning about the technicalities of parts of movements - why the co-axial is special, accuracy vs precision, isynchronism, and developments like silicone escsapements etc.

    Yes, this! New developments, even if it's not high end stuff like the Powermatic 80, Sinn Ar......
    On the other hand I'm so tired of re-issues with stock movements and no new tech/materials

    Shoveling against the tide of calling a knockoff a homage, but it's like shoveling sand against the
    tide using a spoon.

    I must admit to a weakness for reviews that cover not just the design points of a watch but also cover some detail of the movement therein.

    The watch making industry in China appears to be evolving and expanding. I would like to read more about the new directions that industry may be headed. Is more direct partnering with other established watch companies indicated? What new interesting products are being released.

    Great ideas. If I did a conversational podcast on this every 2 or 3 weeks, would you guys want to listen to it?
