People seem to really want a watch with a limited quantity as they feel they have something unique and rare. This puts small to medium sized watch makers in a tough spot. Coupled with the fact that today's younger gen doesn't even acknowledged watches as timepieces, but as fashion accessories. I think the cottage industry small Micros will do ok as long as they keep overhead low and don't expect to get rich off of their efforts.
    Hey, thanks for calling me 'young' :grin

        I thought Armida was Helson’s sis? Are you saying they were triplets?

          doh ! u may be right... the " lore " goes back at least 6 years...and other horo trivia might have scrambled this juicy tidbit...will wait for some one who actually knows to settle this... no need for CODE DUELLO under the cliffs of WEEHAUKEN where A BURR plunked A HAMILTON for saying BURR was amorous with his own sister- usually they just fired straight in the air to preserve honor...not this time...
