Worth A Second Look - The HDM Champagne

I have been to Besançon twice, and I still have not managed to coordinate a visit to the workshops of Humbert Droz. This is something I plan to remedy AC (After COVID).

I don't tend to live my life with too many regrets, but as a would-be employer once told me - "You only regret the things you don't do".  

And yes gentle reader, I was there in the shop at Utinam, it was within reach, but I had another appointment to get to and then an afternoon train to Paris, but this little bijoux still calls out to me -

The movement is from within the French borders, and is hand-winding -
