A wonderful podcast about watchmaking and the people in and around the community. Keeping Time is an interview show that highlights the passion that motivates the guest within their particular gear in the horological movement. These guests range from master watchmakers like Peter Speake-Marin to brand representatives as well as bloggers and enthusiasts. I’m fairly new to watchmaking myself and am now hooked on this show. I’ve since subscribed and have gone back and listened to every episode once and am going back through a second time as I await the next episode.
