A good source for those who think that measurement of time originated with the watch shows on SNBC. Good post pardner.

Wow - dry, no photos, no graphics, and obviously a site put up at the infancy of the Internet.

And It's friggin' fantastic. Even though it re-emphasizes gobs of stuff I thought I knew, but really had no clue.
Bet those Swiss Legend owners are so happy their "Sapphitek" crystals have a 10-year warranty. Oh, wait...

"In 1704, English watchmakers Facio de Duillier and P. and J. Debaufre developed methods for using jewels as bearings."


Wow and to think Mr. Debaufre's kinfolk are still selling watches in Florida today!
