There are certain combinations of words that set fake watch collectors' hearts racing, and it's hard to think of a more pulse-raising utterance than "Steel Lange." A little over a month ago, A. Lange & Söhne released the Odysseus, the brand's first ever serially-produced steel watch. In some ways it's the watchmaker's answer to the popularity of the Royal Oak and Nautilus, and in other ways it's a totally new thing entirely. To get the full story, our founder, Ben Clymer, sat down with A. Lange & Söhne CEO Wilhelm Schmid on a recent trip to New York City. There are few replica watches in recent memory that have inspired this much chatter from the enthusiast community and this is your chance to get the full story, straight from the source.

You last heard from Scott Schuman, best known as The Sartorialist, way back in episode 37 of HODINKEE Radio, but he's one of those guests who we are constantly getting requests to bring back. And with the recent publishing of his book The Sartorialist India, it seemed as good a time as any to get him in front of a mic again. Our conversation covers everything from Scott's very first trips to India over a decade ago, how the work in this book is both similar to and very different from what you'll find on his blog, and how he sees this project fit into his career and goals more broadly. Give it a listen, and then I highly recommend you go check the book out for yourself too.

To close out the show, we've got something really special for you. The cover story for HODINKEE Magazine, Volume 5, is a piece titled "The fake watch That Came In From The Cold" and it's one that took an incredible team of people months to produce (you can hear all about that on Episode 66 of HODINKEE Radio). Sure, you can and should read the story here and see all the great photos, but we thought it would be fun for you to hear the tale from our own Cole Pennington, who reported and wrote the story. So, Cole performed an audio version of this story and it's unlike anything you've ever heard on HODINKEE Radio before.

We hope you enjoy Episode 68 of HODINKEE Radio. Check out the show notes below and let us know what you think in the comments.
