Now, in his late 70's, he has no plans to slow down or stop creating and designing. Listen in to an engaging, open and honest conversation with the assistance of Mr Calabrese's wife as we strive to learn more about one of the most creative and fascinating watchmakers who, more than most, is at the heart and soul of what makes mechanical watches so special and desirable today.

    Keeping Time S4, E11: Joshua Munchow, Quill and Pad

    Keeping Time S4, E11: Joshua Munchow, Quill and Pad

    The best way to introduce today's guest, Joshua, is with his own words. After all, writing is Joshua's specialty. Joshua writes that he is, "the resident “nerdwriter” for Quill & Pad where I write weekly articles about the more technical side of watchmaking or just share my passion about a fantastic watch. I revel in the complicated aspects of watch movements thanks to a lifelong love of gears and clever mechanisms. I have a background in model-making, machining, and a history of dissecting anything I could as a child."

    That sums it up nicely - thank you Joshua. This podcast explores a wide range of subjects from the history and development of hairsprings to the trends in watchmaking today. We discuss Joshua's background and how he came to write for Quill and Pad as well as exploring how Joshua approaches the topics about which he writes with such eloquence. Please join us for a thoroughly engaging, meandering conversation with a highly unique and individual journalist of exceptional talent. And if you really want to know which watch Joshua really can't stand, it's all in this episode! You'll just have to give it a listen to find out.

A Rare Treat

Jeremy Oster is well connected within the watch industry and does a delightful job of bridging the gap between those of us who are not with those who are. The interviews with watchmakers themselves, particularly the independents, are fantastic. In his humble, gracious way, Jeremy helps bring to light hard to come by insights in a way that is approachable and easy to understand.
