I had an older friend who lived on a verdant hilltop at Chardonne overlooking the beautiful Lake Geneva in Switzerland. The view from the large double-storey house, of the Lake and the Dents du Midi mountains in the background, was breathtaking to say the least. My friend had been in the watchmaking industry since he was fourteen years old following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. As a youngster his job was to get up early every morning and go on the rounds of the public clocks in Vevey on the shores of Lake Geneva, and ensure they were all on time, to the second. In his later years he mended grandfather clocks in his own workshop and in his own time at home. Clients were surprised that the waiting time for repairs was two years but happy to know he had the expertise handed down from generation to generation.
