Unusually for us, today, we’re writing about something other than a watch specifically. If you’re into horological podcasts, you’ve probably heard of Scottish Watches. Since its first episode in 2019. it’s been a twice-a-week window into the world of watches offering a unique insight into the world of horology alongside jokes, tartan things, Irn-Bru and silly accents (who actually understands the Scottish accent?).
Yours truly has appeared on the podcast twice, once live in-person recorded in Edinburgh (episode number 52) and once more the following year during the pandemic (episode 197). During these chats, I enjoyed being able to voice thoughts and have some instant feedback and laughter. These episodes are well worth a listen if I do say so myself, but there are plenty of industry expert interviews to check out as well.
Onto the reason for this post. Scottish Watches has just released its 300th episode, which is a massive achievement considering it’s run by a small team of dynamic people (like us!). To mark this milestone, Rikki and Dave chatted with the wife and daughter of legendary watch designer Gérald Genta, who penned the Patek Philippe Nautilus designer, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak, Vacheron Constantin 222 and many more. Will it be possible to one-up this for the 400th episode, having already spoken to just about everyone in the watch industry? Who knows, but if you don’t check the podcast out, you’ll never know!
