I rarely find press releases interesting, let alone useful. However, sometimes you find a nugget. Here’s one of those rare cases. This is from a Tourneau article about daylight savings. Terry Irby, Tourneau’s chief “watch doctor,” warns:

  • Never change a watch during the hours of 9p.m. and 3a.m. During this time, the watch gears are engaged to change the calendar, so changing the time can easily cause breakage.

I’d never heard that before, but it makes perfect sense. Thank you, doc Irby!

While you’re here, learn more about how the esteemed Irby is helping “at risk youth” learn mission critical life skills through watchmaker craft.

Bravo. How can we help?

Full press release.

    Good to know. Thank you.

    Someday, remind me to tell you the story of my father’s wrist watch from his WWII days. Also, maybe there’s lots of guys with watch stories. Maybe we could have a central blog or original COURG owners club as a place where we could share (past and present) stories, make suggestions for your future production models, etc.

    What do you think?

    • I REALLY LIKE THIS IDEA! I would really like to hear that story soon. I will think about how best to make this happen, thanks for the thoughtful note, John!
