Talking Watches With Curtis McDowald, U.S. Olympic Fencer



For the full episode, go to:

By the time you watch this episode of Talking Watches, Curtis McDowald will be in Tokyo, along with the rest of the US fencing team. Fencing, for many Americans, is an exotic sport – so much so that if you mention it, you might very well get a blank stare. (I remember asking a clerk at a Montgomery Ward department store, in the 1970s, if they sold fencing equipment. I ended up in an aisle full of gear for building fences.)

But McDowald and his team hope to change all that – and to establish American fencing as a force to be reckoned with, internationally.

  1. Bro, I love your collection and the stories your watches tell. As a sport watch, may I suggest a Girard Perregaux Laureato. It's a gracious step up for your collection. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This episode and the Brooke Sheilds' episode prove that it's stories that make a watch great, not complications, or status, or investment value, or anything else.

  3. Love this collection. Not about the names but the stories which is great, and the G-shock Casioak is that beautiful twist at the end! Love it.

  4. This is awesome. Finally a guy that's like most of us. Has attainable, yet cool pieces with a story. Reminds me of my own collection.

  5. The Olympic watch ended up being I believe a Hamilton chronograph. Still very nice but not what he was hoping for
