Today's Talking Watches is more than just our first episode of the new year. It's also the first time we've featured three collectors in a single video. What can we say, they work as a team.

Hagley West heads East
Tim Hayden, owner and founder of British micro brand Hagley West, is hoping to build on growing enthusiasm for its watches in the United States by relocating to the East Coast.
The company will turnover around $1 million this financial year, and reports a significant increase in US sales thanks to social media campaigns #loveyourjourney and #FindTim challenges.

#Deinfluencing emerges as TikTokers turn their backs on lifestyles of the nouveau-riche
TikTok is leading a new viral social media trend dubbed ‘deinfluencing’, where influencers tell you what you shouldn’t buy.

GREATEST SHOWROOMS: Grand Seiko, Paris, France
Grand Seiko only started selling its watches outside Japan around a decade ago.
Already, it is almost treated as an honorary member of the Swiss watchmaking elite; winning horology awards at the GPHG and exhibiting at the exclusive Watches & Wonders in Geneva alongside Cartier, Rolex, Chopard and Patek Philippe.
Adjacency, as all retailers know, is everything.
Grand Seiko is not afraid to mix it with the great jewellers of Europe either, having opened its biggest flagship in the world on the
GREATEST SHOWROOMS: Maurice Lacroix, Bangkok, Thailand
Maurice Lacroix has become one of those challenger watch brands that is cutting through thanks to the energy and expertise of a new breed of CEO.
Stéphane Waser took the reigns of a struggling company in 2014 and has been tirelessly building the business with a laser eye on detail and a consistent strategy of appealing to younger, perhaps first-time, watch buyers.

Garmin Instinct Crossover review
I have been wearing Garmin’s Instinct Crossover continuously for over a fortnight. I have not taken it off in that time and it still has 13 days of battery life remaining, despite always being on and displaying the time with analogue hour and minute hands along with useful information including the day and date, heart rate, sunrise time and weather shown using electronic ink on a black background.
If something interesting happens, such as reaching a step count goal, the watch vibrates and the di

Ferrari 250 GTO – the most celebrated car ever made
Reading Time: 3 minutes
The Ferrari 250 GTO isn’t merely a beautiful car in the subjective sense of the word, it is officially a work of art – the Court of Bologna legally ruled as such in 2019, forbidding any company from creating replicas of Maranello’s iconic piece of industrial design.
Nicknamed the ‘The Anteater’ on account of a long, low bonnet that extended to streamlined Plexiglas headlamp covers and a protruding front grille, the 250 GTO was first and foremost about function-driven
