We spend 45 minutes with Simon at James Porter & Son Watch Dealers in Glasgow’s Argyle Arcade.
It’s a big year for 50th anniversary celebrations in the watch world. Putting aside moon landing shenanigans from Omega; its a half century of quartz, automatic chronographs and loads more. So we chat with Simon about Casio, Seiko, Grand Seiko, smaller brands plus how life has changed in Glasgow’s Argyle Arcade.

Got into the horological hobby only a couple of short years ago; but got, as us Scots like to say, “baw deep” pretty quickly. Thanks to buying a lemon of a Rolex he spent hours researching why his watch wasn’t working and along the way gained an interest in what makes them tick. He now runs the Scottish Watches website and keeps cohort Rick in check on the twice weekly Scottish Watches podcast.
