"The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter
...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
Its just fantastic.
AND Carter Harris Head Curator got to wind these pieces. Wow!Not sure who has highest Kudos. Tompion who made these pieces, or the 'gentleman' who purchased them and now puts them on WW display.
I met this man, a 'True English Gentleman'
To me, I had the honor and privilege under Noel and Carter to 'touch' these pieces. A Horologist can ask no more.

NEVER ARGUE WITH AN IDIOT. FIRST THEY WILL DRAG YOU DOWN TO THEIR LEVEL. THEN, THEY WILL BEAT YOU WITH EXPERIENCE.
