Really, really watch this guys. It may be the most interesting 35 minutes I've spent in front of a screen in a while.

I especially like his opinion on the Geneva Seal and the the womens Elegante watch. The man is a genius.

Vacheron Constantin used to be my favorite top watchmaker, I respect Journe even more after watching this.

Oh, man; it made me want to throw rocks at my own collection! I concur with you that the man is a genius, but in a way I feel sorry for him, as he seems to have been almost imprisoned by his watchmaking abilities.

My favorite piece in the film was the brunette French woman with the long legs ... sorry 'bout that; sometimes hornology outweighs horology... :oops:

AKA, an outstanding and fascinating film that grabbed me early and didn't let go; I was disappointed when the end credits started to roll. Thanks for posting, Andrew! 8)
