Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to our very special 220th episode of the Scottish watches podcast. A long time ago, 2 years, in a cold and stormy day, two Richards decided to do a thing, and that thing has developed into a long-lasting podcast reaching podcast, and a great community on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. Also, in the real world, but will resume that when it’s possible. Thankyou for everyone’s support over the years no matter in what capacity you have helped us. A special thank you to those who have contributed to this episode, we got several audio clips from different people who we’ve delt with all congratulating the show and the community that hey have helped to build, we’ll provide you with the latest episode where these contributors appeared. We officially become toddlers with the help of Dave Sharp(@floatlite), and Adrian from B&J(@barkandjack) as we talk about our favorite moments of the past two years. Unfortunately, Rick is still unable to join us, he is not dead yet, but he is still saving the UK just like James Bond.
Fun fact: When kids reach the age of 2 they start to make more sense when they speak. They well start using plurals, and verbs, basically they start to speak better, so for those who still have trouble understanding us, have hope for the future.
Our first congratulations come from Roger Smith(@rogerwsmithltd) and you can hear him on our 198th podcast.
Adrian is wearing his newly acquired Seamaster white dial on a B&J NATO strap. He sold his no date Rolex submariner to acquire this piece, would you do the same?
If you like the Seamaster you can go watch his unboxing and initial impressions on it in this video:

Show notes by @misael_051
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.
