Episode 93 - Just Some Tool Watches

August 5, 2020

In this 93rd Episode of 40 and 20, we're talking Tool Watches.  Specifically, some off-the-beaten-path tool watches - not the usual suspects. Along the way, we talk about our new hosting, and how we paid for it (spoiler alert: it was you), and our pending Patreon giveaway!

Episode 92 - Interview with Michael Happe of Gavox Watches

Episode 92 - Interview with Michael Happe of Gavox Watches

July 30, 2020

In this 92nd Episode of 40 and 20, we (FINALLY) get a chance to sit down with the aptly named Michael Happe, founder and owner of Gavox Watches. Michael is such a fascinating dude, and Gavox makes a terrific watch.  Although we don't talk a TON about watches, we had an absolute blast, and we think you'll really enjoy hearing from the man himself.  

 

Along the way, we chat beer, aerospace museums in Oregon, killer duty boots, and a outrageously good place to set your butt.

Episode 90 - The Objectively Best Field Watch Under $501

July 16, 2020

In this 90th Episode of 40 and 20, we attempt to find the objectively best field watch, for under $501 (turns out one of our watches was $500 exactly). As always, we use our standard scoring rubric, which is basically proprietary (i.e. we can’t remember what it was). We also talk about backpacking adventures, how to buy summer gear, and our poison immunities (or lack thereof).

July 9, 2020

In this 89th Episode of 40 and 20, we catch up and talk about some comfort foods and keeping up with life. We give you some website updates and the final reminder on the Invicta giveaway.

Then we give you our criteria for a "Go Anywhere, Do Anything" (GADA) watch. It's rise to fame and what we think are some good fits, for every budget.

We also talk about a new camera body and how you should spend two and a half hours on your couch this weekend.

Episode 88 - 3 Watches for $600, Part 4

Episode 88 - 3 Watches for $600, Part 4

July 2, 2020

In this 88th Episode, we reach in to the vault to look at building a beginner-watch-collection (or to expand your current lineup). 3 watches for $600 (Part 4!) In the past, we have set sensical but onerous rules for the selections, but this time around, we free'd ourselves up; expect to hear some affordable stalwarts thrown into the mix.

Some website updates, a giveaway, and highlight some hard to pass on deals. We also talk about a once in a lifetime Rancourt shoe deal, and a life changing sleep mask.

Enjoy!

40 and 20 Audio Review - New Seiko Five Sports (DressKX)

40 and 20 Audio Review - New Seiko Five Sports (DressKX)

June 30, 2020

In this Audio Review, Will and Everett talk about their thoughts on the latest watch-forum/insta darling, the new Seiko Five Sports models, now with 100% less dive bezel (aka, "DressKX"). This watch is just starting to make the rounds, but has sold out at various retailers. At the time this is being published several models are available at Long Island Watch for $275 USD.

The written review of this watch has performed extremely well on the website (link below), but we thought we might something special for you audio-only folks. Enjoy!

Episode 87 - Interview with Lorenzo and Lauren Ortega of Lorier Watches

Episode 87 - Interview with Lorenzo and Lauren Ortega of Lorier Watches

June 25, 2020

In this 87th episode of 40 and 20, we spend some time with Lauren and Lorenzo Ortega, the owners of Lorier Watches. As the constant listener will know, Lorier has been featured on nearly every "list" 40 and 20 has ever recorded, so when they reached out to us a few weeks back, we were overjoyed.

It has been a total treat to (finally) spend some time with Lorier's fine time-pieces, and it was even better to meet the souls behind the watches. Although I firmly believe each of Lorier's watches stand on their own, the motivations, direction, and philosophies of Lauren and Lorenzo add so much context to the watches, and have made us all the more excited about what they are doing.

Enjoy!
