His work is beyond exceptional and the incredible works of automotive art created by his company are sought the world over by serious Porsche enthusiasts and collectors. His work also caught the eye of renowned watch designer, Marco Borraccino.

An integral part of the story is the chance meeting with celebrated, award-winning watchmaker Jean-Marc Wiederrecht (7 GPHG awards!). Serendipity played its part and led to one of the most extraordinary chronograph wristwatches of all time.  Join us for a superb conversation with in-depth discussion ranging from Porsche to true haute-horlogerie watchmaking and the inspiration that drives a leading designer to create a legacy brand.

    Keeping Time S6, E01 James Lamb, James Lamb Watches

    Our guest for the first episode of Season 6 is James Lamb, a British watchmaker and Member of the British Horological Institute. Join us as we discover James Lamb Watches and the release of The Origin series, James' first collection of individually created handmade watches.

    The Elements (Earth, Air, Fire and Water) provide the inspiration and theme to be explored in the four pieces that make up the collection. James brings the watches to life for us in an engaging conversation that is focused on the methods used by James in the creation of the new pieces. We discuss the beautiful art of forging and forming Argentium watch cases, largely by traditional methods, with each piece being individual and full of character. We explore the methods used for each of the unique dials and the techniques such as cloisonné enamel that capture the essence of the elemental inspirations.

    James Lamb is a craftsman seeking to gain mastery of all aspects of watchmaking. Our conversation is engaging and natural with tremendous insight into the many dimensions that encompass the art of traditional horology. Like a personal gallery tour by the artist, James brings his works to life with eloquent illumination as he invites us to join him on his personal quest to attain creative freedom.

Great!

That Scott Rosen is a great talent and a wonderful guest host.

SvenTK ,

Insightful and Interesting

Jeremy gets to the heart of each interview and asks the questions no one else does but that everyone wants answered. I like the dynamic with Doug because technical terms and ideas get broken down so that even a novice enthusiast will understand. Love the introductions too…very informative!

athens7 ,

In Depth and Insightful

Jeremy and Doug go beyond headlines and superficial topics, exploring the people, crafts, and business of horology. There is knowledge and insight to be gained from every episode to which I have listened. Jeremy's guests are well chosen and share candid information about watches and watchmaking that are not commonly heard in coverage of this industry. Keep up the good work!
