A splendid discussion by an expert on everything before and after electrical and Quartz timekeeping.
And a wonderfully lucid and fluent explanation of the origin and importance of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, the British Horological Institute, and the Antiquarian Horological Society.
Listen, learn, appreciate, and enjoy.
