This week we said cheerio to Philip Roseblade our most senior watchmaker who helped establish our watch workshop 53 years ago. Philip has been an invaluable asset to the company and a friend to many for over half a century. He has nurtured and trained countless young watchmakers over the years including his three most recent protégées who endeavour to fill his shoes in our workshops today. We would like to wish Phil all the best in his retirement – we hope that the sun always shines on your garden, that your glass is always full of a good vintage and that your bicycle tires are never flat. Thank you for everything.
