Man, that was great, honestly.

I once watched a guy take a watch apart and put it back together, but the watch in this link was a far better one. The time, the care, the smarts, the skill. I mean, wow.

That's the real deal right there. Great post, love; don't know how you found that one, but it was worth the long read.

Excellent. Love how he put the Christie's tag back on the tang. I really want that wood/leather pad he used to work on the movement.

Was dumb luck, actually. Was surfing Imgur and stumbled across it.
