A brilliant and original podcast from a modern British Watchmaker. The first episode shines a light on just one aspect of watchmaking - dial design - from conception, through design to prototyping and production. On this sparkling journey, Harry steers a course while Giles (the founder and "Principle Keeper" of the Schofield Watch Company) rambles across swathes of his knowledge on the subject, dispensing knowledge and opinion in equal measure. Informative, educational and genuinely entertaining, this is essential listening for anyone with an interest in watches, design, manufacturing, materials, or the county of Sussex.
Totally brilliant podcast! I will inform everyone.
An hour of fun, education conversation, and a brilliant insight into the mind of a watch designer and the processes they go through...top class! Can't wait for the next one!
