Collect “ing” Around Watches | Analog Explorer x Zulu Time Podcast

Dan with the UK flag behind him

Dan is the host of the Zulu Time Podcast, based out of the UK, a military watch collector, an Analog Explorer alumni, and a very good friend of ours in the #watchfam.

In this two-part joint episode between the Zulu Time Podcast and the Analog Explorer, AJ and Dan take a look at the notion around Collecting Around Watches. To listen to the whole hour and a half episode you will have to do a little collecting yourself.

Part one can be heard on the Zulu Time Podcast Ep. 61 | Link.

And on this second part, you can find here on the Analog Explorer Substack (and wherever you like to subscribe to podcasts.

Watch Collect’ing’

AJ’s mantra with his collect’ing’

“Watch collecting’ and collecting around the watch is more about the ing for me. Remember where I was or what I was doing , where I was diving , driving , hiking.”
