Despite the crafts and technology of mechanical watches have been made obsolete, they are still desired, collected, and bought in large numbers still. I love mechanical watches.

A. Lange & Söhne are even crazy when it comes to perfection in watchmaking, they even trump Patek Phillipe in my opinion.
