A Sunday Morning History Lesson For You

For many, cracking open the Sunday is likely a tradition you grew up with, and perhaps even carry on to this day.  While I can’t guide you to watch info in that medium, I can point you towards a very interesting article from the Wall Street Journal.

The article in question covers the history behind Abraham Louis-Breguet, his genius in watchmaking, and his eventual path to creating the very first wrist watch.  Who knows – this might even be good background to read up on before John’s book hits.
