    Thatís very cool. Iíd only ever seen Jacques Droz style haute horology automata watches before. Apparently Smiths had a range of different ones. Maybe Eddie could relaunch them.

    Indeed it is. Nice to have some data to confirm it though. They have a complete house wired up with hundreds of sensors to test their products.
