    Why the Paucity of Austrian Watch Manufactures?

    While perusing Peter Braun and Marton Radkai's very fine 2018 watch annual, it dawned on me that, outside of Habring2, there seem to be virtually no Austrian watch manufactures of note. Given that Alpine next door neighbors Switzerland and Germany seem to be the epicenter of high- and middle-horology on planet earth, this strikes me as more than passing strange. Why such a powerful watch culture in Germany and Switzerland, but apparently almost none in Austria?

    Not on par with Habring, of course.

    Well, that's two. Thanks, Mike. The Austrians are still not causing the Germans and Swiss to quake in their boots.

    Probably because the Austrians are too busy writing classical music,they don't have time to assemble the watch

    An extremely complicated watch is itself a mechanical symphony...
