Eddie Phluff: Of Silicon & SIHH Simps

Post by JAS1125 » Fri May 03, 2019 8:30 am

Musing over recent press releases, news reports, and assorted stuff:

Best Use Of Silicon Since (Fill In The Usual Crass Joke Here): There was a really interesting tidbit of news inside the recent announcements that The Swatch Group made about its sales for last year: Swatch, whose brands includes Longines, Tissot, Omega, Certina, Mido, Certina, and if you’re reading this particular site, I’m sure you know the rest, will install anti-magnetic hairsprings in all of its automatic and mechanical watches. Sure – easing fears of magnetic fields is great, but this development actually means a lot more than just that.

And I really miss Betterskills, a guy who caused Jim Skelton much angst at the height of the skull-ringed bloviator's "success."
