Meet The Struthers: English Watchmaking The Old-Fashioned Wa

When you walk into the Struthers’s Birmingham workshop, you feel like you could be stepping a century back into the history of horology. Until you spy a few of Rebecca Struthers’s tattoos, that is.

And then you know you are in the here and now.

And that’s a good thing.

Because a century ago, Dr. Rebecca Struthers would never have been able to achieve the incredible first that she has just accomplished: she has been awarded the very first PhD in the history of horology.

The “el primero” of horological doctorates, so to speak.

The first doctorate in watchmaking in the entire history of watchmaking.

That’s a pretty big thing.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."

Finding out the time is about as difficult as finding a cheesburger.
