Greetings one and all, and welcome once again to Hey, HODINKEE, that ever-evolving extravaganza of enquiry in which you, the faithful viewer, pose horological questions which we attempt to answer.
This week, a reader who loves watches but hates winding writes in to ask about long power reserves in particular, and how best to avoid a ritual which some of us find one of the most intrinsically charming of all the aspects of watch ownership – hand-winding. Another wants to know what exactly, if any, are the differences between dive watches rated to 100 meters, and to 300 meters? And a trend-watcher wonders whether or not, after many years of stainless steel ruling the roost when it comes to luxury, gold might be making a comeback as the de rigeueur case metal for luxury watches.
Finally, a reader asks an interesting question to which I have given a considerable amount of thought: What watch would I give Ben Clymer as a gift, assuming that price is no object?
As always, we hope you enjoy the show! And remember, keep those questions coming. If you’d like to see your questions featured in an upcoming episode, email us at " target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener">.
