Your weekly installment of Fratello On Air is here. This time, Balazs and Mike handle a reader question about a few rather different chronographs.
We love a good reader question, and this week, our faithful listener John sent us a great one! Firstly, thanks, John! John works at a hospital and we’re thankful for the efforts he’s putting in during these trying times. We’re glad that our podcast helps just a little during those tough days.
Before getting to our reader question, though, we talk a bit about bicycles and then get into our Handgelenks Kontrolle. Mike is still in love with his ’90s Rolex Datejust 16200, which shows few signs of leaving his wrist. Balazs is wearing a truly uncommon Certina Chronolympic with Hungarian Air Force cred.
The Reader Question
John’s question led to a number of subtopics. He brings up the legendary Sinn EZM1 with its Lemania 5100 movement, the original Orfina Porsche Design chronograph, and the Breguet Type XX. John asked what we thought about these watches and why they haven’t become as legendary as some other iconic pieces. It’s a fun discussion on three watches that we wouldn’t have considered discussing otherwise.
As always, we thank you for tuning in to Fratello On Air and welcome your questions!
