Ep. 12 - Eric Wind (Wind Vintage)

The first episode of the STANDARD H Podcast explored a brick and mortar business within the independent watch and fine jewelry world. Today’s guest is also in the world of watches, primarily focused on servicing those interested in collecting vintage timepieces. Eric Wind, owner of Wind Vintage operates a website displaying many of his watches, however, I feel the sweet spot for Eric is his personal relationships with collectors. He’s been in the watch game for a while now, namely having cut his teeth as a writer and contributor to HODINKEE. I sat down with Eric while in New York City this past June to discuss everything from writing speeches for Angelina Jolie, to now selling watches that cost six figures. We talk about golf, as well as cars - namely Porsche and how they may just parallel the watch market and Vice versa. It seems many of you are watch fans here, and this conversation really gets into the nitty gritty of the process behind buying a vintage timepiece from one of the more reputable vintage watch dealers today. So if you’re in the hunt, this should give you a bit of behind the scenes insight.
