The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

About 2,000 lbs. worth! ;)

You're being quite charitable old chap! :)

Although, I'm not one to talk!

One would think New York would attract much more of a global presence.
But Maybe this is just the first one........
New Hampshire is actually a good choice for such a venture. There is no sales tax for one thing, and it is close to both Boston AND New York...... The Nashua-Merrimack-Bedford area is a shopping Mecca for our Canadian friends as well (at least for those situated in Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritime provinces).
This is what my research showed. Plus I live here. :D

Congratulations on the opening, The USA is a tough nut to crack as others from this side of the pond have found. That said, with the quality products and at sensible prices, it is a very logical step.

Just another plug for the showroom. It's a great experience if you get a chance to visit and see all the watches first hand and hear Kip's takes on things (although I'm sure he's good about providing his takes on here as well).

I drug my family off course in our family vacation in the New England area to stop by for a visit, and I'm glad I did.

Is every watch stocked in the USA showroom that's listed on the site?

Thanks Kip, looking forward to making a visit. Living in Boston is definitely helpful.
