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 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. 

As always, this episode is a free-flowing conversation with minimal editing. This podcast is all about the personalities in the industry and the passion that drives the creativity and desirability of the beautiful products that we all appreciate.

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.

Join us for the finale of a fantastic season as we we are joined by James Palmer, a driven 21 yr old watchmaker who works for the esteemed
Dr. Roger W Smith, OBE. In many ways James represents the future of fine watchmaking. It is fitting that James has earned the opportunity to learn from Roger Smith and have the opportunity to perhaps continue the legacy passed down from the great Masters such as A.L. Breguet and George Daniels and Roger Smith. After seeing "The Watchmaker's Apprentice," a documentary about Roger Smith and George Daniels, James immediately applied to the British School of Watchmaking. Listen in as we hear about James' journey and discover how the attraction of watchmaking at the highest level can entice a young man to leave his home country of England to move to the relatively peaceful and remote Isle of Man. This is a fantastic conversation: Insightful, honest and full of the hope of a young Gentleman with a highly promising career in his hands. Photos on blog. 

We hope that you all enjoy this episode and have loved this season as much as we have enjoyed the many incredible conversations. More to come next year in Season 4!
