CAN WATCHMAKING AVOID A LOSS OF HERITAGE?

Post by koimaster » April 26th 2022, 10:44pm

Forty years ago, the quartz crisis caused havoc in the Swiss watch industry, leading to the destruction of many valuable documents in the ensuing economic debacle. Now that the sector is once again in deep turmoil, many fear that another loss of heritage is on the horizon. Fortunately, technology has made a quantum leap forward in terms of preserving knowledge. The case of Arkhênum, a company that is currently digitising the archives of the League of Nations in Geneva (15 million pages), illustrates this.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
