Interview With Ariel Adams Of aBlogtoWatch On His Personal Watch Collection By Founder Of Crown & Caliber

My close colleague Hamilton Powell, who started the pre-owned watch retailer Crown & Caliber convinced me to do something I would normally not – which is to participate in an interview talking about my own personal watch collection. While Crown & Caliber is based in Atlanta, Georgia, he visited me in Los Angeles and wanted me to share a “spread” of my watches including ones from my personal collection, as well as some that I was currently wearing for review.

One of the most ironic parts of my “job” is the conflict between wearing my own watches and those I am currently writing about or otherwise reviewing. I acquire watches that I like or that have meaning to me, but I rarely get to wear them given that much of the time I am wearing watches on loan from watchmakers as part of doing a review, and getting to know both that specific model and the brand overall better. Thus, it was an interesting exercise for me to focus on my personal collection and talk about my own subjective experiences and tastes. I’m typically shy about this because I never want anyone to feel as though they should like something just because I do. I attempt to explain the rationale behind liking or disliking any product, and then hoping that the person listening can make up their own opinion about the item that I am talking about. ... n-caliber/

So REL posts an interview with REL on the site that REL runs?

Why, he's no fun, he fell right over.

Frankly, I always enjoy interviews with TV Antenna Adams, mainly because they sound exactly like a six-year-old sucking the air out of a helium balloon, then talking.
I would rather be seen wearing an Invicta than a Hublot - at least I can explain away the Invicta.

It appears so. It's like he's wanking to the portrait of himself wanking in front of a mirror.
His deepest need was that people should like him. An admirable trait, that... In a spaniel, or a whore.
