    I can't ever get enough of his videos.

    I love his line where he breaks a part then walks in the forest to cool off, then returns to work--there is no other way!

    The media would have us believe that smart watches are the red eyed beast from the East. I think it is more the quartz fashion portion of the market that has most to fear from them as I can’t think of a single person who’s stopped wearing a Breitling (or whatever) in favour of an Apple Watch.

    Somewhere on the internet I've read about a few older gentlemen who had health problems (such as a stroke etc) and did just that, started wearing an Apple Watch instead of an expensive mechanical watch out of necessity, for health monitoring. But I agree about the first part, even Casio incorporates smart-ish functions in the sort of watches that a few years ago didn't have them.

    Fascinating video and it made me quite sad. Such a beautiful art shouldn't be allowed to die out. Where are all the eager apprentices??

    Sorry for resurrecting the thread, but I just came across this video in a link on the BBC site today. I didn't realise it had been posted way back in June.
