2019 July Meeting

4th July 2019


James Harris BA (Hons) MBHI

For our July lecture we look forward to welcoming James Harris, currently Conservator in residence at the Clockworks. James also runs his own clock and watch repair business.

After graduating with a First Class degree from the then-new BA (hons) Horology course at Birmingham School of Jewellery, James has spent time working for brands such as Tag Heuer, Omega, and Christopher Ward. He has also returned to Birmingham as a lecturer.

James chose to launch Harris Horology in order to work with his main horological interest, vintage and antique watches and pocket watches.

For his talk to us James will be describing what it’s like to train to become a horologist in the 21st century, studying horology as a degree. He will also be discussing what lead to becoming an independent watchmaker under Harris Horology and the various avenues that keep him busy away from the bench.
