61: Victor Boyd - "My first Rolex Submariner cost £295"

For episode 61 of the Time 4A Pint Podcast, I got together with nomadic Irishman, and owner of Brooklyn’s Iona Bar, Victor Boyd, who you may know from Instagram, as PapillonVic. We talked about buying Rolex Submariners for £295, working in high end restaurants in London and Paris and opening one in Manhattan, selling an entire collection to pay the bills when the world changed on September 11, and starting over in Brooklyn with a very cool neighbourhood bar called Iona. Diving with watches, changing beer barrels with watches, buying vintage, meeting independents, and being tipped off to a spectacularly uncommon, and tough as nails JLC by a former NFL player. There is a lot going on in this episode. So grab your headphones, pour yourself a drink that is time-of-day appropriate, and enjoy. You can find pictures and reference numbers of all the watches that we talked about on the Time 4A Pint website. If you like what you hear, please leave a rating and review on Apple Podcasts.
