Welcome to the Scottish Watches Podcast – Episode 360! A new co-host is making his debut on the podcast, though he has been a long-time website contributor, and helped me cover W&W. From Singapore we bring you Philologus or @wildwristwatch if you are familiar with his amazing Instagram content. He shares his watch story and photography tips.

After researching mechanical watches and the history of Tudor he acquired the Black Bay S&G, then the Submariner and a Speedmaster FOIS.

Consuming a lot of content on YouTube, Philo ended up acquiring many microbrand pieces like NTH and Nodus Sector Field.
