The Brits are back
Switzerland keeps the watch world ticking, but some British brands are putting us back on the map
Posted: 21 Nov 2012
English watchmaker Peter Speake-Marin knows his stuff - he studied at the highly respected Swiss watchmaking school WOSTEP before setting up his own workshop in 2000. Today his watches are some of the most desirable in the world. This is the 2012 incarnation of his Serpent Calendar. It comes with a steel or red gold case, and, unlike most calendar watches that display the date in a little window, it has a separate dial and snaky hand for the day of the month.
