We love watch days, and last Thursday and one of those.
Our plan was to head to capital city (Edinburgh for you Yanks not in the know) for lunch, an interview with Oris, an interview with the team at Chisholm Hunter and to enjoy Oris’ RedBar Edinburgh meet up. For once, everything went to plan and we managed to put a tick beside everything on our todo list!
The interview with the guys from Oris was great and you can hear it when it launched on Apple podcasts, Spotify, Google Play and YouTube on Monday morning (27th May 2019). Being honest I dont think they had a clue what they had signed up for when agreeing to come on the show and from the off they got our usual dosage of guest banter but took it in their stride. A slightly more sedate show but with a few choice jabs in the gut where needed humour wise and definitely one to check out.
The Oris meet up itself was great too, with a ton of their current and prior releases on show for everyone to check out and try on. We will let the pictures do the talking and close up by saying thank you to Paul and Darren from Oris for giving us their time on the day and being very good sports with our show.
Floatlite who organised the event but couldnt make it due to striking air traffic controllers. Chris, Issac and the team from Chisholm Hunter Edinburgh for being hosts and allowing the use of their flagship Princes Street boutique and of course everyone who came along on the night.
Here’s to the next one folks!
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.
