By  |  0 Comments

James Thompson of Black Badger returns for Keeping Time with Oster Watches Podcast, S5 Episode 6.

We welcome back our intriguing and always curious friend, James, to chat about… well, whatever comes to mind! James Thompson is one of the most interesting and in-demand craftsman who adds a certain magic to some of the coolest watches on the market – from MB&F to De Bethune and a whole bunch more. Are you wearing an Indie watch with some cool lume? If so, it’s a pretty safe bet that James is responsible! Doug, Jeremy and James engage in an unscripted conversation which meanders back and forth amidst a variety of topics ranging from Octopus to Tikron of Russia, Spector Titanium to CNC Machining and of course Gypsy curses. We also engage in some irreverent topics.

As usual, this episode is a free-flowing conversation with minimal editing. Jeremy Oster is your host along with co-host, Doug Hoyt.  Thanks as always to Doug who is also the Producer of Keeping Time Podcast.
