I'm not saying they're not his own work, don't get me wrong. It's just another guys who reads spec sheets like he's revealing something new to the world. He also uses his "show" as an excuse to start his own "watch company." Spare me. I guess nauseous just thinking about these people.
It's all good. Forgive me, though, if I respectfully step aside. These people just leave a sour taste in my mouth.

This guy is polished, and the graphics he uses and the production is top notch. I have many in the 'ol library.
EDIT: Like you T, I learned from the forums, my watchmaker, who passed at the ripe old age of 94 a few years ago, and from a couple of family members in the jewelry / watch business.temerityb wrote: ↑Sat Apr 10, 2021 1:45 pm

I have learned 75 percent of what I know about watches from the forums. The other 25 percent comes from talking with friends in the watch and retail watch businesses. 0 percent came from opportunists on YouTube.
I'm not after a YouTube education, and I have to say that while the guy can put an intelligent sentence together making him a cut above 99.9% of the shit on YouTube, there can be something about the guy-but I think he does a polished job overall. I feel exactly like you feel about this guy about 'ol REL Addams although he has some cogent insights into the watch marketplace from time to time. These guys can be shitheelish, indeed.
I checked the 'ol library, and several of this guy's vids in the 3F card catalog turns out to be four. Three of them cover Daniels (my horological hero) and the coaxial escapement, and one illustrates the function of the whole works. As far as my entire library goes, I have about 75 or so videos and graphics that illustrate various aspects of watch making and engine turning, the art and craft of guilloche fascinates me.
I'm not a particularly visually oriented person when it comes to mechanical subjects, watches, engines, and so forth, so I like Teddys's graphics and animations. I don't know where they come from but they are well done. Someday I'll get around to clipping the vids down to the art work. In the meantime I don't feel like throwing a brick through my monitor as I watch. In an admittedly cheeze-in-a-can marketplace, the guy is Pule.
As for his little store, I've never bothered to check it out. And fuck trust fund kids if he is one, the fuckin' fucks.
That right there paints a perfect mental picture of 99% of what passes for "news" and "research" on the interwebs. Bravo!
