Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Scottish Watches podcast episode 228. Dave (@floatlite) joins us again as the co-host and, even though she is family, we have UK Sam (@time.on.her.hands) as our guest.
We revisit her watch journey from her first watch to her entry into Breitling and how she helped out Bremont in their early days. Because of the different connections she has made throughout her career in the watch world she is now offering a concierge service for those who are looking for watches or special parts, so we check out how that came to be and how it’s going.
Being a woman watch enthusiast, we take this chance to see how she sees the industry and the aspects they could improve upon. There well be graphic auditory moments where we all wish Rick were here.
Latest episode of Time of the Week (@timeoftheweek), which you can watch every Wednesday on the Scottish Watches Live YouTube channel, with UK Sam (@time.on.her.hands), state side Sam (@samandherwatchbox), and Lucy (@thewatchboxdiaries).

It didn’t happen as fast as it did in the last episode, but it still happened early, 3:00.
Sam is wearing her beloved Bremont ALT1-C Polished White Pilot’s Chronograph.
Dave is wearing his Swatch Flymagic in blue.
Rikki isn’t wearing anything on his wrist right at this moment, but if you keep an eye on the Scottish Watches YouTube channel, you’ll see a review of the Christopher Wards he has been wearing in the near future. This ends the wristwatch check at only 7:52.

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.
