One of the nicest things about doing trade shows like Baselworld is that occasionally you come across a fresh idea, which in watchmaking is a lot harder than you might think. After all mechanical horology is nothing if not an exercise in technical incrementalism. Thomas Mudge made the first watch with a lever escapement in the mid-18th century, and if you were to show him a modern automatic wristwatch, he might have a couple of questions about metallurgy, and he’d probably get pretty excited about the lubricants, but there’s nothing he wouldn’t fundamentally recognize.
