On Time is back! And for our first episode of 2018 we're talking to none other than Cameron Weiss of Weiss Watch Company. We talk about the challenges of building a watch company and what is in store for Weiss Watch Co.
It all starts with a design...this week Mike and Chase sit down with Karel (@barrelhand) to discuss his journey into watchmaking with his Urwerk homage timepiece, the use of CAD and additive manufacturing in R&D, and the start of his new project.
This week on OnTimePodcast, Mike and Chase sit down with @onehourwatch and go in depth into watch designs, what inspires original designs, and how one gets into committing to creating one watch-inspired drawing every day.
Put on your sunglasses and try not to stare directly at them. That's right, this week we're talking iced-out watches and the flaws they hide beneath the surface. Sometimes they may look great, but besides debates about taste and subtlety, we investigate how icing-out a watch may compromise its durability...
Any watch collector that has shopped private sales online knows that there are some great deals to be had buying second hand. Unfortunately there are quite a few scammers out there as well. This week, the On Time crew talks to Art, aka PuristPro forum moderator, "Dr. No", about spotting, avoiding, and shutting down the scum and villainy of watch sellers.
When Matt Farah of TheSmokingTire.com drops by to hang out with the On Time crew, the agenda goes out the window because we know we’re in for a wild ride. Naturally, we talk watches, cars, and the joys of breaking the speed limit. Buckle up...
This week we welcome Ray Santamaria a licensed MFT with a masters in clinical psychology and a self diagnosed WIS. Ray, Mike, and Chase gaze into the abyss that is the psychology of a WIS and come out the other end in mostly one piece. We'll look at different types of compulsions, addictions, and the various enthusiasts they belong to in an attempt to better understand the kung-fu grip this hobby has on us.

Many moons ago we sat down with Christian of TheoandHarris.com for an earnest discussion about the good, the bad, and the ugly of horology and the industry itself (retail and aftermarket). We finally got around to giving the episode the attention and polish it deserved. Now we're happy to finally bring you our discussion with one of the coolest guys on the front lines of the vintage watch market, fighting the good fight for collectors everywhere.
This week we sit down with Sheldon, owner of the Rolex informational site "Minus4Plus6.com." We discuss how he came across the "first Swiss watch in space" and how a concerted effort from him and other well known watch enthusiasts spread the word about this special piece even before the manufacturer ever marketed the story.
When On Time does a watch review you can count on two things: one, it's not going to follow the format of a normal run-of-the-mill watch review, and two, it's going to get nerdy up in here. We look at a Rolex 5506 with an identity crisis and break down all the quirks of this odd Air King / Explorer.
What's your craziest, most epic, or just plain odd watch story? This week we sit down with our friend Art from the PuristPro forums to share his amazing story about acquiring a special Omega Seamaster, a story that spans decades.
LA's own Joshua @engineturned Shapiro sits down with us to talk about the exquisite art of engine turning and his goals going forward for producing the best possible watch dials in the US to spreading the gospel of this rare craft.
Call them certified pre-owned, secondhand, or even used, the CPO watch market is something the industry can't ignore any longer. While it remains to be seen how this all plays out, the guys discuss what's currently going on, what should happen, and what could be possible for the used watch market.
This week we got a chance hang out with our very first 'On Time' guest, co-founder of the LA Watch Gang, Andrew Lee. We discuss new additions to his collection since the last time we talked, his continuing obsession with blue watches, and general watch nerd shenanigans.

From the first time #teamOTP met Michael Margolis, we knew we had to have him on the show. He's an industry veteran that started out, and to this day still is, a collector like us. Join us to hear his journey from discovering the watch world through a 56k modem to working with Jean Claude Biver.
On Time presents a quick and dirty guide to keeping your watches safe at home and on the go. Mike, Chase, and Manuel go over some simple life hacks and the story of Mike's first ill-fated IWC. So check your seals, bracelets, and straps, -let's go.
This week, the crew talks about the venerable Co-Axial Escapement and delves deep into the technical geekery of why watches equipped with a Co-Axial escapement are so awesome. Also they examine why servicing a Co-Axial is a venture that requires a lot more care than a typical Swiss lever escapement movement.
