Hear from the people who made the watch and the content happen...
In this episode, we’re talking about our brand-new watch: the Sierra Zero One Phalanx. We’re delighted with it and even happier to introduce you to a man who was absolutely instrumental in its creation: Richard Brown. Richard worked for many years with Special Forces units globally, and we’d love to tell you exactly what he did – but then we’d have to kill you, which isn’t exactly going to boost our audience figures. Instead, Richard talks about what the Phalanx was inspired by and how it was created, throughout a process that took nearly two years. It's a fascinating glimpse behind the scenes that tells the full story of how an exciting new watch came into being, from concept to reality. Let us know what you think…
