Welcome to the Scottish Watches Podcast – Episode 379! Have you ever read a Rolex poem? Thanks to a listener email today’s podcast features the first to my knowledge. Today’s show is filled with listener messages and releases that will keep you hooked. Starting with the Formex Reef GMT, we move to the Tudor Ranger, a pair of Wristmons that officially bring the Joker and Harley Quinn into the Konstantin Chaykin family, plus the Citizens Silver Leaf that manages to capture the hearts of Rikki, Dave, and me. Not everything is perfect in the world because, although the MoonSwatch has been a complete success for Omega and Swatch, they won’t be sold online.

Wrist check: Our collaboration of 69 pieces with Christopher Ward is starting to make its way to buyers and to celebrate Dave is wearing his. Note the substitution of the English Flag for the Scottish. A picture containing watch Description automatically generatedRikki is wearing the new Formex Reef GMT 42mm Automatic COSC 300m sku-2202.1.5312.711 A picture containing text, black, gambling house Description automatically generatedWatch Alert: Formex Reef GMT 42mm Automatic Chronometer 300m – by @koolpepA picture containing floor, indoor, watch Description automatically generatedA watch on a table Description automatically generated with medium confidenceA watch on a leather surface Description automatically generated with medium confidenceA close up of a watch Description automatically generated with medium confidenceA picture containing watch, indoor, floor Description automatically generated https://formexwatch.com/accessories/deployant-clasp-22m-with-fine-adjustment/  Formex Field Automatic Ultra Violet 41 mm A person wearing a watch Description automatically generated with medium confidence What we’ve been up to:Amazon.com: Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa (Unrated) (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD) : Johnny Knoxville, Jackson Nicoll: Movies & TVBad Grandpa – Sexy ‘Cinnamon’ (Full Clip) A picture containing text, building Description automatically generated Now that Rikki has a white gold Daytona to worry about he’s been looking at ways to not get it nicked.

So you have to have a Rolex,

Because nothing else will do.

You’ve got that stupid feeling,

I know, I have it too.

 

Every influencer has one.

Rappers wear one or two.

Or said a random fan on Instagram

So you know it must be true.

 

Can you beat the system?

Or do you play the AD’s game?

Because you went to every dealer

And they answered all the same.

 

Nothing you can purchase.

Exhibition only in the store.

Before smiling unconvincingly

And pointing at the door.

 

So you could not lay your cash out.

First World problems are such a bitch.

You consider buying Tudor

But it just aggravates the itch.

 

The Pateks are too pricey.

The Omegas are too cheap.

The wasted nights on dealers’ sites

Instead of getting sleep.

 

Browsing every model.

So many from which to choose.

They only go up in value right?

There’s no way I can lose?

 

The forums don’t like two-tone.

So I won’t like them too.

Stainless steel has mass appeal.

If the dial is green or blue.

 

So you’ve bought a Rolex

But now you see them everywhere.

They’re on the wrists of everyone

They’re really not that rare.

 

Solid and reliable,

Yes they are OK.

Mass produced in Switzerland

By the thousands everyday .

 

So we had to have a Rolex,

Because nothing else would do.

You’ve been sucked in by the marketing

I know as I was sucked in too.
