At the beginning of all action is a belief
When it comes to mechanical watches, today’s vocabulary flourishes with superlatives and ready-made statements.
Words like "creativity, manufacture, exclusivity, innovation, limited edition, trend, ultimate, etc." keep flooding the professional literature and the advertising in general.
This somewhat legitimate turmoil conceals the very nature of a mechanical timepiece.
Because of the hundreds of tiny pieces combined in an intricate web of gears and wheels, the precision of a mechanical instrument will never match that of a quartz instrument. Interestingly enough this has never been an issue.
Why? Simply because a mechanical timepiece is and will always remain the quintessence of traditional craftsmanship with a long lasting value. Some of our museum pieces have been passed on from one generation to the next six times already.
To many of us, acquiring or inheriting an ever ticking instrument with a noble history behind it is like making a dream come true.
