This person is a damn good engraver. But then he'd have to be, to be an authorized engraver for Jaeger-LeCoultre.

That and watchmaking are good businesses to get into in the US, if you've got the skill for it and are willing to move to where the work is. The average age of practitioner in this country is something like 65, and as long as there are collectors, there will be demand. Not to mention that they're both dying artforms worthy of preservation.

Nice. My Dad was an engraver, among other things.
