Apprentice Callum Scobie-Youngs has done just that.
Scobie-Youngs is the first clockmaking apprentice at the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers for many years. He is now an apprentice to his father Keith Scobie-Youngs.
His father, a liveryman and court assistant of the City of London livery company, will ensure his son follows the required indentures which stipulate he abstain from the aforementioned temptations for the seven-year term of the apprenticeship.
Alongside this appointment, a new master was welcomed to the livery company. Joanna Migdal, who is a sundial maker by profession, takes over from Jonathan Hills.
Hills, a senior specialist in clocks and barometers at Sotheby’s, will now serve as deputy master for one year.
