Aaah you...Your incurable :p good read. It is interesting how he suggests that to try and start an independant company now would be trumendously difficult owing to the fact that the larger conglomerates have bought up all of the valuable resources. Such a shame...

If there ever comes a day I am cured...it would be the day I am no longer a WIS...

I found his comparison of annual output with other brands interesting. How he went from himself to Patek and then Patek to Rolex. I always knew 900 was a small number but it was never really clear just how small. Interesting even between Patek and Rolex. Now I know what high-end exclusivity really means.

Now to get to memorizing the article..:D
