Sad to see. He brings a good point about the trade, you make many mistakes. Take a whole day to make a part and break it, go take a walk in the forest to clear the mind. A life long learning process.

At nine to ten months labor per watch I wonder how much his watches sell for?

Answer to my own question, last October one of his Duality model watches was auctioned off at $915,000 dollars. I am going to really step out on a limb here and guess none of our forum members own one of his watches.
