The Six Pips is a watch podcast without precedent. It is the first of its kind, as a podcast produced in-house by a British watch manufacturer
Six episodes, each comprised of six questions, explore everything from the everyday workings of a watch company to the microscopic details of design and production. Each episode focuses on a different topic, ranging from what it’s like to start a watch company to Giles’ point of view on many of the most controversial issues of the day. Schofield’s Principal Keeper navigates the choppy waters of modern-day watch making, accompanied by Harry, another Schofield stalwart. The Six Pips is an horology podcast with a difference, that difference being that we are the insiders and we’re ready to tell our tale.
