Having been fooled, conned, burned and swindled more than a few times by press conferences, often well-meaning inventors, and business men.
I like Calabrese and have owned several of his watches. He is a VERY clever guy, but to say "The Spiral Hairspring is Dead" is equivalent to saying "The Mechanical Watch is Dead".
Guys (like many of us) would have to give up those “pulsating hearts”, Vincent would have to give free access to his patent rights, other movement designs would need to be amortized, etc. before the end of the hairspring is nigh…
That’s my Thought, anyway.
