Our friends at Scottish Watches have reached a significant milestone – and celebrate with a special edition of their podcast.

The Scottish Watches Podcast Reaches 300 Episode Milestone

Launched in early 2019, The Scottish Watches Podcast began as a bit of fun and has rapidly grown in popularity and stature to now be one of the leading voices on podcasting platforms when it comes to delivering watch content in a humorous but informative manner. Releasing two shows weekly, Monday’s episode covering new releases, news and chat of the past week, followed up by an interview episode on Thursday featuring collectors, watchmakers, brands and people of interest to
listeners; the show delivers an hour of content that is professionally edited and available free of charge across all popular podcast players and websites including Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify and SoundCloud.

“What started as a joke comment on Instagram sometime in late 2018 has magically turned into a podcast that’s listened to across the world by watch enthusiasts and industry veterans alike” said Rikki Daman, founder Scottish Watches.

David Sharp, the other half of Scottish Watches added: “Reading the messages of support and enjoyment of the podcast content from listeners is a genuine source of pleasure, and drives us to try and deliver ever better and original content”.

The shows are jovial in nature and although packed with “genuine watch content (TM)” the hosts play to their strengths and use every ounce of their Scottishness to have fun with the topic matter and laugh through each episode, rolling in the odd inappropriate joke when listeners least expect it

Some of the stand out guests over the past 300 episodes include everyone from Jean Claude Biver to Archie Luxury; plus Roger W. Smith OBE, Max Busser, Frank Stephenson, Brian Duffy, George Bamford, Tim Mosso, Edouard Meylan and many, many more.

For the 300th edition of the show, Rikki and David decided to celebrate the man who helped shaped the watch world as it stands today, Gerald Genta. After speaking with his daughter Alexia and then his wife Evelyne, a date was arranged for the recording and in the blink of an eye, the hour had passed bringing with it countless stories and anecdotes that have never been heard before, directly from those closest to him. This is also the very first time that either Alexia or Evelyne have appeared on a podcast so the 300th
edition marks many firsts including the first watch podcast in the world to reach that milestone episode count.
