Listen to Rebecca on BBC R4's Four Thought

For anyone that missed the broadcast, you can now listen to Rebecca Struthers’ appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Four Thought with Olly Mann.

The show explored the endangered art of traditional watchmaking, the loss of heritage skills, and why our craft is still important.

“When well-made objects are cared for, it’s a cycle of relationships that can span centuries. The oldest family watch I’ve worked on was five generations and 250 years old. When working on an object that symbolises the passing of time itself, I’m acutely aware of the fact that I’ve become a moment in the history of this watch, a moment in time for an object that was made centuries before my birth and will live on centuries after I’m gone.”
