Dean’s fascination with mechanics and design from an early age eventually led him to horology, a subject that ties together art and mechanical precision in a captivating way. He was granted a QEST Scholarship to study on the 3000 hour watchmaking course at The British School of Watchmaking. This two year course in Manchester teaches traditional watchmaking techniques alongside modern day watch servicing methods.
As a watchmaker, Dean was passionate about using traditional techniques to keep a dying craft alive in the modern age, and his long term aim was to produce one-of-a-kind handmade watches and clocks.
Dean sadly passed away in 2020.
