Welcome to the Scottish Watches Podcast – Episode 268! You most likely know of the British watch company Pinion as we have mentioned them before on the podcast but maybe you don’t know the back story of the brand and the founder.
Piers from Pinion has been involved with over 40 films before he started Pinion, his portfolio might even include one of your favourites. And after starting his watch company he continued to work with the film and TV industry by providing watches that have appeared in the likes of Doctor Who and Fast and Furious 9. He talks about his early involvement in the watch fam, forums, Bremont beginnings and on to starting his own business.

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.
