Dr Rebecca Struthers

Exploring the heritage of time itself

An acclaimed watchmaker, designer and time historian, Dr Rebecca Struthers is the co-founder of Struthers Watchmakers studio and workshops.


In her practice, she specialises in the continuation of historic watchmaking techniques to restore old and craft new artisan timepieces. 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.


A certified ‘time doctor’, Rebecca became the first watchmaker in British history to earn a PhD in Horology. Rebecca is a Trustee of the Museum of Timekeeping in the UK, a Fellow of the British Horological Institute, a Sustainable Skills Ambassador for the Association of Heritage Engineers, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, and an Academy Member of the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève.


Her first book, Hands of Time, the story of horology in seven watches, explores the human history of time told through the objects invented to measure it. It is scheduled for publication in May 2023.
