And what dedication - Dominique says some years the watchmakers did not even take summer vacations and often worked weekends.

with a nice discussion about the origins of the watch.

For one who can afford it, making a bespoke model from the Ateliers C. (even with a few complications only) must be a great experience.

Thanks for sharing Alex.

That is a great video. Just a wonderful tale. A 15.5 kilo I got of gold? Wow. At today's prices (if 24k), that is $618,675. Just for the gold ingot. Amazing. I love to hear about the passion of the brand, the people and the collector.
