Back in September, we held the debut HODINKEE Radio Watch Collection Fantasy Draft . Ben, Cara, Jack, and I plunked down and each needed to assemble a six-watch assortment that included present day sport watches, vintage dress watches, sacred goal pieces, and everything in the middle. It produced some beautiful fascinating outcomes, and it seemed like every one of you truly delighted in tuning in and projecting your decisions in favor of which assortment administered them all. In this way, we’re doing it again!

This time around, we have three new editors going along with me in the room –  Cole, James, and Jon –  and we’ve changed our center a piece. Rather than swinging for the wall, we’re looking to marginally more available watches. Every editorial manager was given $10,000 in HODINKEE Bucks to buy a bunch of five watches. Every manager had the choice to stack up with one tremendous piece and four minor players or attempt to make it all the more even, and both vintage and current watches were accessible on the whole adjusts. There were a couple of easy decision picks, just as a huge load of astonishments and a lot of conversation of watch-gathering methodology, so you’ll certainly need to give this one a listen.

The Collections

Just like with our last dream draft, we chose to give this one a touch of construction. Every assortment should contain five watches all out, and those five watches should incorporate one blender/ordinary watch, one appropriate dress watch, and one complication or the like (the watch should show some different option from hours, minutes, seconds, and the date). The other two spots are absolutely open, so every authority can pick what he thinks best balances the assortment. Additionally, much the same as last time, just a single individual could pick each watch or watch original, so there’s as yet that competitive edge.

With those standards as a main priority, here are the four assortments we drafted:


  • Everyday/Beater Watch: Tudor Black Bay Fifty-Eight

  • Dress Watch: Vintage IWC Caliber 89 In Gold

  • Complication: Minerva Cal. 13-20 Chronograph In Steel

  • Flex: Swatch Sistem51

  • Flex: Casio G-Shock


  • Everyday/Beater Watch: Rolex Explorer Ref. 14270

  • Dress Watch: Vintage Omega Seamaster DeVille

  • Complication: Omega Seamaster Professional Ref. 2234

  • Flex: Halios Seaforth

  • Flex: Garmin Fenix 6


  • Everyday/Beater Watch: Tudor Black Bay 36

  • Dress Watch: Cartier Santos-Dumont In Steel

  • Complication: Apple Watch Series 5 Edition Titanium 40mm
