REBECCA AND CRAIG STRUTHERS, STRUTHERS WATCH MAKERS | WAM CAST #0018

We travelled to meet Rebecca and Craig of Struthers Watches in their workshop in Leek, England.
We featured their story in Edition Two of our biannual publication; We Are Makers. It was great to catch up two years later to finally meet and have a more in-depth conversation about them and their journey.

Recently Rebecca has written her own book. Written by Rebecca Struthers and illustrated by Craig, you can order her first book 'Hands of Time', A Watchmaker's History of Time. Hands of Time is an intricate and uniquely personal exploration of the history, science, philosophy, and craft of timekeeping.

"When we were at uni, which is where we originally met, the two of us brought down the average age of the watchmaking course by about 40 years. One of the other students joked that time becomes more interesting the less of it that you have. It was like a retirement hobby as opposed to a career. But the watch industry has been growing massively in recent years. One school in Manchester started to teach basic manufacturing about 15 years ago, and we’re now seeing graduates from that course setting up their own workshops after an initial spell in industry. The industry is getting younger and it’s really promising to see." - Extract from Ed.2
