Artisanal French Watchmaking

Postby koimaster » July 26th 2018, 9:04am

After three years of designing, sawing, filing, and assembling, French watchmaker Cyril Brivet-Naudot has released Eccentricity, his first timepiece. Made entirely by hand without any numerically control machine, Brivet-Naudot’s Eccentricity features an original and mysterious time display with one rotating dial for the minutes with a second dial turning inside for the hours. In addition, it features a manual key-winding system, a nostalgic look back to the long history of watchmaking.

Wagnerianly ghey.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Nice one Cyril.
Not.
His art is anal.

By Jove, that's got to be the third time that I see this nice (in terms of finishing, not of design), but otherwise idiotic contraption here.

Artistry's artistry, but there's literally no justification for something quite as idiotic as a key-wound watch with no dust cover to protect the movement against sweat and all sorts of filth that can get inside the case through the holes for winding and setting arbors. Judging by the level of finishing on the watch, and that the movement was designed from scratch, that guy really could do something as simple as giving the watch a hinged dust cover.
His deepest need was that people should like him. An admirable trait, that... In a spaniel, or a whore.

I'm wondering if a simple plug is/could be utilized for the hole?

Edit-scratch that, I see the key receptors are flush with the holes.

I would think that Bazinga! is well acquainted with plugs.
