I thought this was a pretty good article… But I am a clock guy.

What do the informed watch folks think?

I do not claimed to be informed, but it was a good article. On some other forum or somewhere on this forum, there was a discussion about using IC manufacturing technology to make better hairsprings (as I recall) so that mechanical watches could be more accurate. My position (similar to the article) is that we do not adore mechanical watches for their accuracy...we have all the accuracy we need with our Android/iPhone. So, yeah, watches are jewelry and this article does a good job with the artistic aspects of watchmaking.

Good atricle. You still cant do better at finishing watches, than a human doing it.
