About C & R Struthers

The Struthers Watchmakers workshop and studio was founded in 2012 by husband-and-wife partnership of master watchmaker and antiquarian horologist, Craig and Rebecca Struthers

Their family-run workshops specialise in the continuation of traditional watchmaking through the handmaking of parts, use of heritage tools and machinery, and practising of rare craft skills such as the making of watch cases from sheet metal.

The workshops and studio combine over 30 years of the Struthers’ experience in vintage and antique watch restoration, with award-winning design and research. Between Craig and Rebecca they have studied and qualified in watchmaking, goldsmithing, silversmithing, fine art, gemmology and history of design. This rare combination of skills and experience allows them to bring heritage fine craftsmanship into the  21st century.

Their critically acclaimed first watch Stella, 2013, received multiple awards collecting a Design Innovation Award for ground-breaking design in platinum and a Commendation from the Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council. Since then, the Struthers have won over a dozen more accolades and featured on television, radio and press both at home and around the world. They have been recognised for their work towards the preservation of the traditional art and science of watchmaking. While they work on their first in-house movement, Project 248, they specialise in the servicing and restoration of vintage and antique watches, and, the re-commissioning of historic movements which they rescue from the bullion trade and return to functional pieces of history.
