Legendary watchmaker Vincent Calabrese joins Keeping Time with Oster Watches Podcast, S5 Episode 3

We’re back for another episode! As always, we look for the most interesting stories that need to be told. We are joined by Vincent Calabrese, founder of AHCI, inventor of some of the most famous movements including the Golden Bridge for Corum and the original Blancpain Tourbillon with 8-days reserve as well as the more recent Caroussel Tourbillon.  An icon in the watch industry and a restless creative force, Mr. Calabrese joins us to discuss his incredible journey in haute horlogerie.  Mr. Calabrese started his watchmaking career at the age of 14. Now, in his late 70’s, he has no plans to slow down or to 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.
Deep within me there is a true desire for innovation. I am incapable of limiting myself to what I know, and to surpass myself is still my goal even after a career of nearly sixty years.” – Vincent Calabrese.
