Hi Alex et al
Perhaps I'm wrong but there seems to be a dearth of female members here. I know many women who are interested in chronometers and I find their absence on this rather wonderful site quite strange; I know they would add much to our discussions.
One of the most knowledgable people I know on the subject of time pieces of all sorts - also my favourite jeweler/watch maker - is a woman!
Just thought I'd ask...
