The Beauty and Art of Making a Watch

An excerpt from Dr. Rebecca Struthers new book, Hands of Time:

You build a closer relationship with what you’re making when you work by hand. You can hear when the cutting speed of a lathe or drill is perfect, and you can feel from the resistance whether the pressure of your tool is correct. We like this sense of connection to the objects, and to the generations of artisans who came before us.
