Having founded the brand seventeen years ago, English watchmaker, Peter Speake-Marin is no longer a shareholder of the brand. Mutually agreed by the shareholder's, the decision was announced recently, though it had been in the works for sometime now. The financial crisis of 2008 seems to have been one of the main reasons as to why he had to sale his stake in Speake-Marin SA over the years, so much so that he no longer owned any piece of the brand.
Peter is currently busy with his next project, exploring his passion for watchmaking in another dimension all-together – imparting education on the art of watchmaking online. The venture is said to debut in September, this year.
