Events: Peter Speake-Marin’s Lecture at The Horological Society Of New York

As HSNY enters their 152nd year, watchmaker Peter Speak-Marin will be on hand to introduce his new platform for watchmaking education.

By Josh Shanks

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.
