Nothing Here if You Don’t Like Watches, Sick Burn from Marc Andreessen
Nothing: Volume CII, Issue #7
This was a weird week. This issue is all about Watches. I like watches. I even made my own. Made might be a stretch. More like heavily modified.
Made, modified, whatever you want to call it, it serves a constant reminder of my failed e-commerce business. That’s a story for another time…
Why stop at Italian cars and women? Let the achingly beautiful Italian watches break your heart and bank account too. I’m not sure what a ‘Bespoke Unit’ is, but the website does a pretty good job of highlighting Italian brands and the history of Italian watchmaking.
Panic with Friends
It’s another Panic for this week as well. Couldn’t be helped. I love watches. Justin is an expert on buying, selling, and trading pre-owned luxury watches.

I don’t know what kind of crack this dude is smoking, but he makes Justin Reis’ point from the Panic podcast. Buy a Submariner. (The only thing better is a Valhalla — ha). I’ll give the guy credit for bringing the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms up. I’ll concede it’s maybe, just barely, a near peer to the Submariner.
Since this issue of Nothing was about Watches, I wanted to throw some love to Rob Petrozzo of Rally. Maybe you’re not looking to sink five figures down on a watch? The Rally app has opportunities from time to time for fractional ownership of some iconic, investment-grade watches.
