This week on the Superlative podcast, our host and aBlogtoWatch Founder Ariel Adams is joined by Roger Peeters, the Founder and Master Watchmaker of Hooke and Huygens. To start the show, Ariel dives into discussing small independent high-end watch brands and their important role in the watch industry. The two talk about the mentality behind the modern watchmaker today, and how important having a true artist’s touch is when creating a watch brand or new design. Ariel asks why Roger did not go with his own name when creating this brand, and who exactly Robert Hooke and Christiaan Huygens were. They dive into the brand’s overall strategy with its relationship with its customers, and they go over its patented Hooke and Huygens ring-shaped semi-skeleton ring movement with 12 positions and 41 jewel bearings.
