Scottish Watches Podcast #74 : Q Timex, G-SHOCK, Urwerk Plus Actual Watch Content

We are back and flying solo, or duo again this week.

Continuing our adventure in actually talking about watches, we first of all find Kaz from TBWS the next great American novel courtesy of Kat at TennandTwo’s vast and brilliant show notes. Word of advice Kat, no one reads them, or maybe it is just ours no one reads.

I would like to take part in my own Deadpool to benefit my heirs and successors, hardly seems fair not to let me have a go.

Scottish Watches and TOCKR Watches

We are already getting ready for the drunk TBWS and Scottish Watches GPHG Royal Rumble in November – are you ready to tune in?

We’ve mentioned it before but it was asked of again – The Rolex Daytona vs Jool Tool video :

Have you checked out our live IG chats? Missed them check our YouTube channel for the recordings.

Missed us on Instagram…so did we for 24 hours, we spent the extra time on our Facebook Group, do join, most of you will know the answer to the entry question.

The Seiko Gold Arnie is my watch of choice this week, the Panerai is back in its box, for Rikki he has a predicted watch for next week, actually three:

The Back in Stock (briefly) Q Timex for only 159 of your Great British Pounds,

or a Black Casio G-SHOCK “Royal Oak” The “CasiOak / Royal Shock”

… or maybe it will be an old version of this Raketa “Copernic” if it ever arrives from the guy in Kiev.

While we remember go to James Porter and Son and check out the new Seiko 5 range with a nifty 10% off if you use the Scottish Watches discount code of Seiko10, for buying Seiko 5’s go figure but 10% off is better than 5%.

Be sure and beat the #halfwatchtuesday guys before they buy them all.

Next up something more exotic from Urwerk and a row from Barbara @whatsonherwrist

What appears to be another Hodinkee exclusive and another £500k worth of Benjamins for Benjamin, just buy the Gorilla.

We quite like the look of this new Aqua Racer, well we did, then we didn’t then we decided to have a survey instead. Do you think watch companies should provide Automatic options for the traditions quartz ladies versions of these watches? Let us know in the comments please!

More green this time from Certina, and includes a Nivachrome hairspring taken from the Swatch Flymagic

… and now for something a bit different.

Now for some Oris Chat from show alumni Archie Luxury, but what were TGN on with their price thinking for this Oris

Lets leave it to Rikki to name the “cannot unsee” for this watch, just like this one from TBWS episode which was a Citizen and not a Seiko

The Citizen Y Fronts Watch.


We got a listener email, well by listener we mean Bamford who think Adrian works for us….ssshhhh the secret agent is supposed to remain secret, that is the secret watch club rules.

Now what about embargoed email documents, are we obliged to keep to the embargo if the sender and recipient do not actually agree in advance.

Car time, would you rather own this Invicta than any of the ones Rikki owns?

Then quickly some Apple content…..eekkk run away, run away.

Now something a bit special and Christmas is coming.

Not quite as affordable for Christmas we have this from Artisans de Geneve


Finally some watch cleaning advice from Watchmaker Rikki and Paul Thorpe, which “watchmaker” do you trust more?

Enjoy the show!
