ROTARY gold-plated Quartz Pocket Watch, ca. 1987
Apologies watch enthusiasts, but this
ESA 960 111 movement is such a beauty...
I simply had to give you the full resolution that came out of my Coolpix S10. What a fantastic piece of Quartz technology. Ironically I bought this watch at a time when watch companies tried to find "mechanical watchmaking talent". And quite desperately so. But after 10 years of unemployment, company closures and many very hard years for many watchmakers and their families, quite a few left this industry and by the time the watch sector needed them again, they were not willing to leave their safe e.g. information technology jobs.
