We recently joined the Zulu Time Podcast to chat about Bremont's new Longitude/ENG movement launch event (which Dan attended) and review exciting watch pickups over the course of the year. And no December podcast would be complete without a holiday gift guide! So here's a roundup of our suggestions for that watch loving bon vivant in your life. We did a round robin of three recommendations each, listed in order of how they were presented. Happy gift giving!
