Posted on 02 February 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Hamilton-Factory-Gear-Patrol-Slide-5

In the current day and age, we no longer think of the places where watches are made as being factories. Instead, we tend to call them by the name the Swiss industry uses – manufacture. Just the simple change to this non-English (yet still recognizable) word calls to mind a much different image than you likely have when you think of a plant or factory (especially for those of us who have worked in such facilities).
