Time To Unwind Podcast #16 - Quartz vs Mechanical, Petrol vs Electric

Tim Vaux




Do the similarities between the watch and motorsport industry stretch even further than we first thought?

Just occasionally, you get a seismic shift in an industry: as is the case right now with electric cars set to take over from the venerable internal combustion engine. But there’s nothing new under the sun that hasn’t been seen before in the world of watches. In 1969, Seiko rocked the industry by introducing the very first quartz watch. With the help of Chris, our very own in-house electric car evangelist, we take a look at how the watch industry changed - and how the automotive world is about to do the same. As is normal on this podcast, not everyone agrees...

Sit back and enjoy!

I don't think I can remember a time in my life when watches weren't in my life. I've been writing about watches online for a handful of years now, enjoying every moment of it. I'm passionate about experiencing the world of watches and translating those experiences via articles and images for the wider audience to consume.
