Mechanical timepiece has always impresses me with the fact that so many hand made components are packed into one small case and with its own source of energy. Surely any quartz watch with a fraction of a price of these mechanical watches are more accurate in terms of time telling, but to some, not having a small beating mechanical heart in a watch is unacceptable!
I was fortunate to visit some of the timepiece boutiques in Abu Dhabi and Dubai and can't help but fiddle with some of the impressive contemporary horology pieces out there. Here are some of my favourites:
Glashutte Original: PanoReserve hand wound
Omega Speedmaster - Manual
IWC Portuguese Classic (limited 500pc) Manual with Piaget movement
