    New Watchmaking Technique Developed!

    ...or at least you would think so by reading the first sentence of this article.

    http://www.thelocal.de/society/20090904-21699.html

    Nothing against the watchmaker, or his pieces as I'm sure they are quite nice...but the writer of the article has apparently been living under some sort of rock for decades

    As ever, don't expect journalists to have any idea on the subject they are covering.
