At the January 9, 2018, meeting of the Horological Society of New York, British watchmaker Peter Speake-Marin will present his new platform for watchmaking education, The Naked Watchmaker. The platform stems from Speake-Marin’s time as an antiquarian horologist in London working on antique pocket watches and vintage wristwatches. In his lecture, Speake-Marin will address the technical points needed to understand modern brands, the finer aspects of independent watchmakers and the key points to consider when looking at calibre manufacturers. Speake-Marin will also touch on future goals for The Naked Watchmaker, including his interview series and fascinating macro photography.

About Peter Speake-Marin

Peter Speake-Marin, born in 1968 in Essex, England, left school at 17 and discovered horology. Speake-Marin’s watchmaking career has touched on every segment of the watchmaking industry, from the antique world of restoration to modern complications, from being a consultant, to developing brands. His final dream of sharing his love of watchmaking (modern and vintage, simple to complex) was never realized, until today with the launch of The Naked Watchmaker platform.
