Today, we’re extremely excited to announce the launch of the Revolution Watch Podcast. This will be where we will discuss all things related to watchmaking and design with the people who shape the industry and share the same obsessions we do.

Watch people, we love to talk. So it was only natural that we begin a podcast where the spoken word can take the spotlight. Through conversations with our own editors, as well as the talented and passionate individuals we meet in our line of work, we hope to bring you the latest industry news, reviews, and first-hand accounts into watch events that happen around the globe.

Revolution Watch Podcast Episode 1: Carson Chan

Our podcast debuts right before the start of SIHH, which is organised by the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH). So, we are delighted and extremely fortunate to have Carson Chan as our guest on the very first episode of the Revolution Watch Podcast.

Carson is the Head of Mission in Greater China for the FHH and has amassed invaluable knowledge of the watch industry over the years. An educator and master trainer for the FHH, few can explain the industry as clearly and concisely as Carson does.

In the episode, we discuss FHH’s dual role of organising trade fairs and its cultural, more educational side. We also learn more about Carson’s own watch journey. He is credited as the person who brought Richard Mille the brand to Asia and it was a delight to hear about Richard Mille’s astute vision for his brand in its early days.

Of course, we couldn’t part ways with Carson before getting his personal opinions of what’s to come at SIHH. You’ll have to tune in to find out!
