The price of their products may be out of reach, but I do like looking at the tools they are using:
A type of Rose Engine Lathe.

I have heard, possibly here, in the past, that the watches created (if they are created) by him, are being sold at greatly inflated prices, with extremely inflated claims, on ebay and possibly an online site.

I would definitely make serious inquiries before buying anything, based on what I've heard, even though my knowledge is second-hand.

Greg,

It's just a plain old rose-engine turned silver dial with a milled recess for the sub-seconds. Fits in a 42mm case and uses the UT6497 movement. There are a couple of people in the Denver area who do this kind of engraving work. That machine pictured above is excellent and I've had a chance to play with it. The person is NOT an employee of MA. He's an american craftsman who does work for others, mostly jewelry (he's a master jeweler). He makes a "mean" Faberge egg.

I would love to have one of those lathes to play with. Ever since I bought a copy of COMPLEX AND ORNAMENTAL TURNING by Holtzapfell(sp?). But the cost is hard for me to justify (w/o winning the Lotto jackpot).


Best regards,
Greg
