He sells hand-made boots by Trickers and Oak Street, and the kind of vintage Levi’s and Barbour jackets that would make McQueen proud. Grahame Fowler is the real deal. And so is his watch collection.

Talking Watches With Spike Feresten



If you know comedy or if you know cars, you know Spike Feresten. Spike has been a mainstay of the American comedy scene for upwards of two decades – getting his start as the receptionist at Saturday Night Live (where he earned the nickname “Spike”) before becoming a regular writer for SNL, focusing heavily on the then Dennis Miller-hosted Weekend Update. He would go on to write for Late Night With David Letterman and eventually end up as the author of several of the most iconic episodes of the most iconic sitcom in history. I’m talking about Seinfeld, and Spike’s episodes include “The Soup Nazi,” “The Wig Master,” and “The Muffin Tops,” just to name a few. Like I said, iconic.
