The Dutch and Australians always got along well. Both fun loving and laid back, the two cultures have many similarities. So, when Aussie Andrew McUtchen, founder of leading watch publication Time+Tide Watches, met with Ace Jewelers’ Alon Ben Joseph, they immediately hit it off. Obviously their passion for watches made them connect and chat for hours in Geneva where they hung out.
In this episode Andrew shares his journey as a publicist working in the fashion industry, why he loves watches so much and he will discuss fatherhood. Obviously Andrew & Alon will try to discover if Down Under the favorite watches are the same as in Europe.
Bernard Werk is an icon in the Dutch watch scene. He is the publisher of one of the oldest watch magazines in the Netherlands: Watching. Two decades ago Bernard interviewed the Ben Josephs for the first time and a friendship was forged afterwards.
Recently Bernard co-founded a new Dutch brand: Gyre Watch. Wristwatches made of recycled fish nets! Obviously we had to support this project immediately and we became authorized dealers of these sustainable watches.
During this episode of The Ace List Live our own Alon Ben Joseph will discuss the evolution of the watch industry the last few decades with Bernard. Not only from a media perspective, but obviously from a product point of view as well. And, why a journalist felt compelled to become a sustainable watch producer.
