I HAVE TWO PASSIONS: cars and motorcycles, and watches. Being enamored of these doesn’t mean I really have two consuming passions, however, only one: mechanics.

In cars and motorcycles the engine is, well, the engine: crankshaft, pistons, valves, spark plugs, and so on. In a watch, the engine comprises the gear train, escapement, balance and attendant devices.

The enticing quality of both is visibility. You can see an engine and understand how it works—how the various parts, moving and stationary, contribute to the functioning of the whole. You can even comprehend that the engine is a product of human intelligence, engineering, and dexterity.

The passion takes different forms: What some like to observe, others like to build. Two watches appearing later this year feed on this intense desire to create—and observe—things mechanical.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
