It’s a wristwatch rodeo with special guest Katlen Schmidt from Nashville, Tennessee who works for an undisclosed Swiss manufacturer … but can you figure out which one?
Keep listening to the end to find out about our brand new hush hush watch strap venture!
We talk limited edition releases such as Hodinkee’s Seiko Alpinist plus the 4am Omega Speedy Tuesday gold rush.
Watch and car flipping with eBay and the WWE’s John Cena’s Ford GT.
Rick tries to use Katlen’s home as a Deliverance address for his new USA only watch buy and Rikki stumbles blindly into the Invictaholics Facebook group – which seems like an episode of the Twilight Zone.
Katlen talks about the lack of proper female watches and what its like working in an authorised dealer.
She also thanks us very much for for not sending her any unsolicited Rick pics.
Rick offers to be Rikki’s watch mule, but says no to sticking a Seiko up his rectum. Then repents on his Hodinkee rants of the past.
The jealously pure rips out of Katlen because its cheaper for us to fly from Scotland to Switzerland than the cost of the petrol (sorry Katlen, gasoline) to the airport.
And we chat about Baselworld price gouging, Tudor cracking safes and now having functional email addresses!

Just call it the “Mr T” for me
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.
