Superb Watch Podcast.

This podcast offers a fascinating, in depth and expansive insight into starting and running a modern watch brand within the U.K.

Not only do you get to hear very detailed insight and specific details of the whole watch design process but also discussion on the wider watch industry and its practices.

Giles is clearly an excellent communicator, he speaks very clearly and with great passion and intelligence. Within half an hour of the first episode I wanted one of his watches even though I had never seen any of his watches before!

Highly recommended podcast.

Exemplary.

Anyone working in design practice or the business of design would do well to listen to this.

Highly Illuminating

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.
