What could be better than two Scotsman, a Manx resident and a guy with the surname France to introduce the latest organisation dedicated to the world of British Watch and Clock making.
We bring to you today the Alliance of British Watch & Clock Makers
Founders Roger Smith and Mike France are here to tell you all about it and how you can get involved.
We do also chat a bit about both their brands and what they are up to, and they are up to a lot.
Plus Roger gives us an insight into George Daniels and the creation of the co-axial escapement that Omega are now utilising in their current watches.
Today also sees the launch of something new from CW, but we cannot tell you until I re edit these notes after 10am on Friday, because we are not ABTW….
Enjoy the show
Got into the horological hobby only a few 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.
