The watchmaker’s explanation of the watch making process is also a highlight of the event! Put on a table of watchmaking tools and movement parts, and then live demonstration of wonderful production techniques such as manual polishing, it is dizzying. The watchmaker also detailed the internal structure of the watch directly. The VIPs even put on the watchmaker’s magnifying glass, watched the movement made by the perfect craft, and personally appreciate the legendary charm from Bai Langfeng!
