Keeping Time Podcast S.6 Episode 1: James Lamb Watches

By  |  0 Comments

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.
