One of my #1 things about HODINKEE has consistently been the community. I’ve worked for a modest bunch of distributions throughout the long term and have encountered nothing very like it. In the course of the most recent two years or somewhere in the vicinity, we’ve been investing more energy in Los Angeles, and I’ve been sufficiently blessed to be there for some of our occasions and meet-ups, becoming acquainted with the unbelievable West Coast watch scene in the process.
At one of our first LA occasions I met the present visitor, Chris Bruss. Actually he works in Hollywood, yet Chris is a disarmingly decent person, somebody who does not have the entirety of the ostentatiousness and assumption that you’d ordinarily partner with somebody who goes through his days teaming up with A-rundown entertainers, chiefs, comedians, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. His story sounds practically like a platitude: A dedicated child from the Midwest gets his beginning in the sorting room at CAA and, before you know it, becomes the leader of comedy media titan Funny Or Die .
During our last excursion to LA, our author Ben Clymer and I plunked down with Chris to get the full form of his backstory, a gander at the early bootstrap long stretches of Funny Or Die, and a few clues about the thing they may be doing straightaway. Past his profession however, Chris and I have various shared fixations we needed to discuss as well. These incorporate Grand Seiko watches, gaming long standing customer focuses frameworks (regardless of doing it on competing carriers), and searching for that next under-the-radar thing to get way too into. The current week’s scene is quintessential HODINKEE Radio – it’s only a few of geeks hanging out, discussing geek stuff.

I completely partner Chris with his Seiko Prospex Diver SLA017 now. He was wearing it the first occasion when we met and it truly feels like an ideal fit for him. The restricted release entertainment of Seiko’s unique 1965 plunge watch appeared at Baselworld 2017 and gatherers went insane for it immediately – I got huge loads of instant messages and Instagram DMs from people asking how they could hold one of the 2,000 pieces early. Regardless of being that attractive however, it’s a generally unnoticeable watch that spectators wouldn’t perceive as anything strange. That sort of serene cool, the sort that is better the nearer you look and the more you know, is by all accounts Chris in a nutshell.
