Today's episode is action-packed! We hit the mics for a one-two combo of good old-fashioned watch matchmaking. But before we get to Juuso and Louis, the people of the internet ask Andy the tough questions over his latest acquisition, the 36mm candy pink Rolex Oyster Perpetual. He fearlessly answers every one, and by the end of it, we can guarantee you will have sold all your 40mm+ black-dialled divers and falling in love with petite fun watches.

Eventually, though the questions die down and we dive into our watch matchmaking. Juuso is in a very 2020 predicament. He had his name down for the 39mm white-dialled Rolex OP, and then Rolex discontinued it. He wants an alternative.

And Louis, well he has a different problem entirely. He's an American entrepreneur looking for a watch to tide him over until his rose gold AP comes in. Louis is also after a watch he can pass down to his kid. Buckle up people, it's about to get wild (and watchy) up in here.

Watch Matchmaker for Juuso

I turned 30 in July, and I celebrated the milestone by ordering Rolex Oyster Perpetual 39 in white. I saved money for that exact watch for two years. Then out of nowhere, Rolex decided to cancel making OPs in 39 and my AD called that I don't get what I ordered ... what would you recommend for me?

Watch Matchmaker for Louis

So here's the thing. Looking for a watch I can wear everyday - pool or board meeting. (I'm an entrepreneur - basically make my own schedule). I dress in a lot of white jeans/denim shirt/blazer with vans. Love PJT which is what brought me here ... I like leather bands and natos.
