Overlooked British History

Got most of it wrong on British watchmaking history. Yes Brits were preeminent from 1650 but still competitive until after World War I.

No ! Harrison did not figure out how to find Longitude, He did figure out how to make a time keeper to make well known methods work.

No !Ford did not teach industry about assembly line and mass production. Ford was a watchmaker himself and learned from US mass producers who became pre eminent and showed technology at US 1876 Centennial. Swiss learned from this; Brits ignored it.

British watchmaking history is very much appreciated by teh Antiquarian Horological Society which published monthly and holds lectures tours and meetings.

Very interesting coverage on current watch scene but not reliable on real history
