Way back in January, Jon composed an anecdote about a Antiques Roadshow segment highlighting a veteran in North Dakota who discovered that the almost unworn Paul Newman Daytona he purchased for $345.97, thinking back to the 1970s is currently worth a huge number of dollars. He in a real sense hit the floor when he was determined what he had, and the watch community did a lot of a similar when they saw what occurred. This week, we’re adequately fortunate to have Antiques Roadshow leader maker Marsha Bemko and appraiser Peter Planes go along with us on the show. These two were answerable for finding and esteeming that Paul Newman, and they’re adequately thoughtful to share the whole in the background story of how it was found and why this is definitely in the pantheon ever Antiques Roadshow finds. We get into a couple of other watch-related features, and both Marsha and Peter offer more extensive experiences into how Antiques Roadshow is created, why it’s so compelling, and what they’re wanting to discover next.

Following that discussion, I talk with our bold chief, Joe Thompson, about the condition of the watch business, what precisely is going on with Baselworld, and the continually changing expo scene. Its an obvious fact that the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting in a real sense each aspect of life and each industry possible – and the watch business is no exemption. Joe’s been doing some genuine detailing and fills me in on what he’s realized. In like manner, he’s been following all the different exciting bends in the road in the expo dramatization that has unfurled for this present year and offers up an extremely fascinating point of view on what’s occurred, why it’s occurred, and what the future may look like.
