Default Making the most complicated watch

The skill and attention to detail in this video of the making of Patek Philippe's most complicated watch is just amazing.

One of the jobs offered to me after I left the Navy was as an apprentice watchmaker...I am glad I did not take it.....VBG....

Superb craftsmanship.

PS, I see only 6 will be sold, so better get your order in.....
