Blackbird Watch Manual Vol.6

For the sixth volume of Blackbird Watch Manual, we dedicate it to the incredible craftsmanship that is found in watchmaking and beyond. Our cover story is dedicated to the Chopard Manufacture, on the occasion of its 25th anniversary, and its L.U.C collection of timepieces, such as the amazing L.U.C Full Strike, which has been built through a true story of passion and a deep appreciation for the history of watchmaking by the Scheufele family.

Through the stories of Reuge music boxes making, the professional life of enamel master Suzanne Rohr and modern automatons, we explore how the spirits of craftsmanship has perpetuated through generations.

Beside horology, we explore how the British have continued to apply themselves to maintaining it across many of their industries, from watches (of course) to many of their iconic products. We also look at how furniture design, millinery, and even perfumery can be transformed by the experiences and histories of the people behind them. Finally, the story on the Concorso d’Eleganza at Villa d’Este merges the elegance of the classical automotive world with not only a spectacular venue, but also with a dash of the Saxonian interpretation of watchmaking excellence that is exemplified at A. Lange & Söhne.
