The Tefnut Twist- A New Take On Winding from Moritz Grossman

Postby Racer-X » April 7th 2017, 8:36pm

by Jack Forster "One of the nicest things about doing trade shows like Baselworld is that occasionally you come across a fresh idea, which in watchmaking is a lot harder than you might think. After all mechanical horology is nothing if not an exercise in technical incrementalism. Thomas Mudge made the first watch with a lever escapement in the mid-18th century, and if you were to show him a modern automatic wristwatch, he might have a couple of questions about metallurgy, and he'd probably get pretty excited about the lubricants, but there's nothing he wouldn't fundamentally recognize.

This is easily the most convoluted sentence since Donald DeFreeze got immolated by the LAPD.
