Open Heart Surgery

Revolution Magazine, one of the newer and more 'hip' watch magazines (and let's face it, most Western countries are getting more hip.....and more thigh, more stomach, more man boobs etc., etc. these days!) is very generous with its archive content.

It lives up to its claims, and in volume 5 offers an excellent technical and photographic essay on the "heart of the watch" - the escapement.

The magazine also operates the horomundi blog at
