The Cartel on W&W 2021 – Andrew, RJ, Wei and Frank Talk “The Biggest Dark Horse”

4 guys, lots of private jokes... and some watches in the middle too.

Following yesterday’s talk, it’s time for the second session of our best of Watches & Wonders 2021. Once again, with the absence of a physical event, Zoom became the way to do things! So Andrew (Time+Tide), Robert-Jan (Fratello), Wei (Revolution) and I meet once again to discuss watches, in what Andrew calls “the least official Watches & Wonders wrap possible.” Today, it’s my turn to host the show, as we speak about the hidden gem award, for the most surprising killer watch, a.k.a “The Dark Horses” of W&W21. 

Once again, we all threw in some cool items to be gifted, randomly to anyone who (intelligently) comments on our rant. So do hit the keyboard and let us know your choice in the ‘Dark Horses’ category and try to win one of our canvas watch rolls.

  1. Agreed on the white gold black dial Patek, Frank; before the show I predicted a new calibre to replace the 215, but I didn’t see the guilloché bezel coming.

    My watch of the show – in whatever category – is Lange’s QP salmon dial, though. Damn expensive but probably the best-looking Lange 1 I’ve ever seen.

    Wei’s beauty spot had gone by the end, but I managed to pay attention to the talking this time.

  2. @Gav… Yeah, that new Calatrava is seriously attractive. Fully agree on the Lange 1 QP, it’s drop-dead gorgeous. And indeed, the price is eye-watering… the white gold LE is almost 4 x the price of a steel Odysseus.
