I especially liked the comment that an Automatic watch if overhauled and cleaned every 5yrs will last forever whereas a quartz will be hard to get parts after 10yrs.Thanks for the upload mate.Total relaxation Video.

Well done documentary. Just loved what they had to say.

"a mechanical watch will last forever"
"watches have a soul"
"every day a watchmaker retires, we lose something"

The last quote is sad but true. Watchmakers locally are a dying breed, thats the reality.

There were some great quotes in there. I gotta watch it a couple of times.
Magnificent craft and mechanical art in motion.

"when I look into the watch, I feel like I live in wonderland. Because zis movement is completely crazee, and my world iz also completely crazee"


"I don't like the reality of real time, I prefer my reality in my time"


A true artist, perfectionism, makes sense why it takes so long to make/repair watches.


haha, love it. wink.gif
