Watch Doctor

The 21 November 2022 Nature's Where I Work feature is about Rebecca Struthers, "a watchmaker and historian at Struthers Watchmakers in Birmingham, UK." Her career path is interesting and after dropping out of high school she spent some time studying jewellery and silversmithing in art school. She found she "missed science and technology," and returned after earning two academic degrees to watchmaking as well as restoring "antique and vintage pieces." She occasionally finds herself making "a replacement (part) by hand."

And where do science and technology come in" She notes "We need to understand how things are made to restore them."

She and her husband have owned C & R Struthers Watchmakers since 2012. Here is the webpage and I recommend a visit the premises.
