Welcome to the Scottish Watches Podcast – Episode 378! Today we bring you one of our youngest and illustrious watch fans, Curtis Kane. Being a younger collector that has gone deep into the hobby, a journey that we are happy to say we have influenced. He talks about buying, selling, and attending events with a perspective that’s not often heard. One of these events being DWW which led him to rub shoulders with Max Busser, Konstantin Chaykin, our own Dave Sharp, and other heavy weights.
