By hand you say? That is quite beautiful!
Yes, entirely by hand. OK, he uses some pedal-operated machines which were already in existence 100 years ago.
Incredibly, Daniel Roth (the maker of the above watch) also made the dial and even the case. Well, that's what I was told.
The only parts of this watch that did not come from his own handwork would have been the sapphire crystals (front and back) and the strap.
Interestingly, this extraordinary watch is now owned by an Australian. The photography is mine.
If Dr Phil can do it, then so can I!
Seriously, though, I think that it's just good sense - concealment and deceit aren't good in a simple friendship, let alone in a marriage that is supposed to be between equals.
