SIHH has come and gone since our last episode, and we thought it would be lovely to get some of our editors on the pod to give you their take.

For this episode, our guests are Revolution US Editor-in-Chief Keith W. Strandberg and Revolution Online Editor Sumit Nag. They tell us a little about how they got into watches, what their favourite watches are from the fair, and even get into what predictions they have for Baselworld this coming March.

First, we chat with Keith, who addresses some of the biggest stories coming out of SIHH, as well as dive into the category of watches for the athlete. (Keith himself being the outdoorsy type, with a love for motorcycles and martial arts).

Afterwards, we chat with Sumit, where we get a behind-the-scenes look of what it’s like covering the fair live on social media, and shadowing Wei Koh during his many appointments. He also shares his picks for watches for the old soul.

Keep on listening to find out what their picks are!
