Zhao Zhenling

Post by AlbertaTime » September 30th 2020, 12:45am

Zhao Zhenling, 28, may look like an ordinary, shy and quiet man, but he is the youngest master watchmaker in China. He is the designer of China's first tourbillon minute repeater, the inventor of the first Wu Ji "Infinite Universe" tri-axial tourbillon movement in the world, and the director of the design center of Beijing Watch Factory.

Great read, wish it had been more detailed. What a talented and dedicated young man.

BWF has a couple that I wish were readily available in the West but they have a market that already buys all they can produce. They do some incredible dials.

Jeesh, what does that guy do when he turns 30? Nice read.
Thanks.

And, yep, that's what i was thinking--but there's some very youthful crew at Beijing.

Remember, this is the master engraver for the Playing Dragon and Phoenix.

^^^Damn! Wow!

And I am happy when I clean the garage: think I have really accomplished something. I am low hanging fruit.
