One reason the IWJG (International Watch & Jewelry Guild) just deals mainly in new watches is because they don’t have maintenance and repair problems. They’re under warranty or parts are available. Patek Philippe just stopped supplying parts for their older calibres a couple of years ago. So now you’ve got to repair or make a new part or find an old part that’s been lying around in somebody’s drawer unused. Collectors, at least the ones I know, quite often stick to one brand and get really deep in its history, but that doesn’t necessarily need to be the brand they wear in daily life.

When great men tell you that ideas are sometimes best born on the backs of restaurant napkins, they might actually be thinking about a balmy afternoon in Paris circa 1904. Then, a young Deutsch Prize winning aviator complained to compadre Louis Cartier that pocket watches are a tad dangerous when both hands are needed to pilot aircraft (there were no avionics in the nineteen aughts, everything was manual). Cartier created the Santos-Dumont with a simple leather strap and buckle and they say the rest is history.
