This week’s episode is a bit of a two-parter. The main attraction is, of course, Felix’s chat with Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe. Recorded during Watches & Wonders earlier this year, Mr Guadalupe discusses the difficulties of working with sapphire, and Hublot came to excel in technical case materials.

They also talk about the important role art plays to the brand and why collaborations with creatives like Maxime Pleschia-Büchi (who you may remember from the other week) and Takashi Murakami push watch design forward. But before we get to all that goodness, andy and Felix keep it colourful by wrapping some of the year’s brightest releases, and Andy also gives us a look behind the scenes on his latest article for A Collected Man.
