Today’s guest is the cool, calm and collected Cole Pennington from Hodinkee. We got up with Cole fresh from a stint in Thailand, a country close to his watch-collecting heart and one with a special relationship with Seiko. Speaking of Seiko, Cole and Felix politely disagree about the legendary Monster, and Cole talks about the one that got away. We also chat about Cole’s important story uncovering a new space watch and how he went about putting it together. From there, we dig into the watch stories that make Cole tick, the ones he can’t tell, and why he’s busy telling his own story fishing with a Rolex Pepsi in the Ozarks.
