Mike France interview on Scottish Watches podcast

Post by timor54 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:48 pm

Mike France has been a guest on the Scottish Watches podcast where he spends about an hour talking about CW history, the Swiss watch industry, products and product development, the logo... amongst other things.

By their normal irreverent standards this was rather well conducted with few wild and wacky detours. It makes interesting listening as long as you can ken a pair of Glaswegians.

I just listened to the podcast this morning on my commute to work. I agree -- it was very interesting to hear his thoughts. I loved learning how they came up with the brand name too! :lol:

Thanks for the heads up. I like a podcast on the drive to work, so I look forward to listening to this.

Sorry but I got fed up with this after 5 mins but stayed on till about 25mins, Why early on are they talking about sitting and crashing in their own cars while Mike France is having to hang on in silence and then they're off in their own thoughts about beating Gardeners World !

What has that got to do with CW watches.

I thought this was a good listen one you get past the gooning around at the start, but that added to the informality I think. (The car thing was related to how they got the name and lampooning the way another rival English watch maker got theirs)

Definitely worth a listen, especially if you other half is insisting on watching episode 345,984 of Grey's Anatomy. ](*,)
