A multi-award-winning designer, watchmaker, and historian; Rebecca is half of the founding husband and wife team behind Struthers Watchmakers studio and workshops.
Born and raised in Birmingham, Rebecca was just 17 when she set out on her path to becoming one of Britain's leading watchmakers. Initially training as a jeweller and silversmith with a passion for creating complex pieces of articulated jewellery; Rebecca soon found a way to combine her passion for craft with her love of science in the pursuit of horology. Her addiction to education has continued alongside her career as a practitioner. Now a bona fide watch doctor, in 2017, Rebecca Struthers became the first watchmaker in British history to earn a PhD in horology.
Outside of her workshop, Rebecca is an active campaigner in the preservation of endangered heritage skills in the watch, clock, and jewellery trades along with the improvement of diversity within her discipline. She is a Member of All-Party Parliamentary Group for Craft and has appeared on local and national television, radio and regularly features in the press raising awareness about skills shortages and careers in watchmaking.
Away from her role at Struthers Watchmakers, Rebecca is a Fellow of British Horological Institute, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Authority.
Her first book, Hands of Time, the story of horology in seven watches, is scheduled for publication in 2022.
