Craig Struthers

Master Watchmaker

 

Craig has always loved vintage mechanics and discovered watchmaking in 2004 after years spent playing with classic cars, motorbikes and scooters.

Studying at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design's School of Jewellery, Craig soon picked up a reputation for having an incredible degree of patience working on complex repairs for complicated antique watches. This extensive experience has given him the skills required to make or repair virtually every component found inside a watch.

After graduating, Craig spent his time learning from some of the greatest vintage and antique restorers in Britain, and has apprenticed a veteran chronometer maker for Mercer.

A Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Craig holds a master's degree in art and design.
