If you’re into watches, you know that the tourbillon is the nitrous charger of the watch world – you’ll probably never use it, it doesn’t make an amazing amount of sense, but darn it if it isn’t cool. RGM Watches is a small watch company in Pennsylvania and they just launched their own manufacture tourbillon, a tourbillon made from scratch from stem to stern. These guys are consummate professionals and for an American brand to create a tourbillon, especially in these days of waning manufacturing prowess in the US, is amazing.
The video, above, gives you an idea of what goes into this watch and I post the HourTime podcast in which Ariel and I talk about the tourbillon, albeit slightly snarkily. I also interviewed Roland Murphy of RGM here.
