Piaget Quality Watches On The Net If you've been following Time Factors watches since the beginning, this one will be familiar to you. It first hit the drawing board in 2003 but techical problems delayed it for so long it was put back on the shelf until 2009, when the design and revised specification were given to another company, who overcame the original difficulties and produced what is a superb watch. At least one manufacturer boasts that it (only) takes a year to make their watches ;-). It would have been easy enough to make the watch without the rotating bezel with pointer under the crystal but this is such an important part of the watch that I wasn't prepared to omit this important feature. The watches to which the PRS-9 pay homage had little or no water resistance, arguably because if you need water resistance in an aircraft, your watch is the least of your worries. The PRS-9 is fitted with a new old stock AS1130 movement, one of the calibres popularly known as a "Wehrmacht" movement. Gallery

A Basic Homemade Watchmakers Bench Photo layout Hello WUS Member's,This is my first contributory post and I hope some will find it useful. Yes I know all of you look forward to my comical and wise-cracking posts but after more than a hundred or so, it's about time I post something serious. Let's get Started...After looking over the web for plans for a watchmakers bench and finding very little in terms of dimensions I sat down an did some tinkering with the bench on my own. I came up with a bench 40 inches long by 40 inches tall and 18 inches deep.I picked out Birch ply panels 2' x 4' x 1/4" for the front and sides, this took four sheets of material, then the top I used another 2' x 4' Birch panel by 3/4 inch. 1 sheet of that material. Then for the framing I used Douglas Fir in 2" x 4" in 10' length. 3 boards used. (try to find the dry ones if you can, sure helps too keep it square.) Sorry for the quality of the pics it's totally the fault of the operator!

The Clock is real. The Clock is now being machined and assembled in California and Seattle. The Clock’s inventor introduced the idea of the Clock (in 01995) with this context: I cannot imagine the future, but I care about it. That’s Danny Hillis, a polymath inventor, computer engineer, and designer, inventor and prime genius of the Clock. Eno also composed the never-repeating melody generator that rings the Clock’s chimes inside the mountain. To see the Clock you need to start at dawn, like any pilgrimage. You keep climbing.

Watch Nerdist Interview: KM Independent Watchmaking by A Real Person on October 5, 2010 In my last post I talked about a couple of items that could be the future of the wristwatch. One not (necessarily) designed as a watch (the iPad Nano) and the other taking new technology into the wristwatch arena (Seiko E-Ink watches). As a young guy in his early twenties, Keaton decided that his future lay in watches. JE: So, what kicked off your interest in watches? KM: My interest in watches goes back to my childhood. The passion came later. JE: So you kind of knew at this point that watches were going to be your career and it was a matter of getting to that formal training? KM: Yes, I knew I had found something worth pursuing, but I also realized the difficulty of getting into some of these schools. JE: Knowing then that you were going to pursue watches as a career you started tinkering before you enrolled in school (I know this because you worked on a couple of mine). KM: Repairs are a wonderful thing. KM: Lititz has a very intense curriculum.
