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 ;-).

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). While both of these designs could be the start of the next area of watches, the immediate future, in my eyes, belongs to guys like Keaton Myrick. As a young guy in his early twenties, Keaton decided that his future lay in watches.
