The “Industrialization Of Arts & Crafts”: Is This The Unspoken Tagline Of Many (Most?) Haute Horlogerie Brands Today?

by Ian Skellern

There was a small horological polemic recently out of Geneva caused by an employment advert from a high-end watch brand looking for a “chargé d’industrialisation métiers d’art” (“manager for the industrialization of métiers d’art”).

I tried (twice) to read this article, and all I get out of it is a headache.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

I made it all the way to polemic.

Since many people weren't in lockstep with his beloved cheese box shit watch brand, The Cruise King ran off blowing snot bubbles, far away from his once-beloved forum. Here, eat this mudpie, Paw Paw. It tastes like a Hershey bar. Go ahead, dig in.
