watchmaker.jpgA nice thread about the creation of movements and the death of watchmaking.

Among many other speculative reasons, my friend and recognized world wide authority in the world of fine timepieces, proposed an idea I had heard before, whispered between old timers for years, in this niche, curtained world of magic and mythology that is Haute Horlogerie – “modern movements are designed on, by, and for computers and automated production, and thus, leave no room for the world of true skilled manual watchmaking. The world where an experienced, gifted watchmaker adjusts, files, polishes, tunes, something that was conceived with more ‘human, real world’ tolerances.”
