We examine specific case studies in watchmaking that involve repairs of poorly-serviced luxury watches in "Bad Watchmaking." We view the hallmarks of sloppy workmanship as applied to movements from Patek Philippe and Valjoux. Mike walks Tim and the audience through a discussion of modular complications including multiple time zone watches from Franck Muller and a triple-retrograde chronograph from Harry Winston. Conducting service on skeleton watches and Geneva Hallmark movements receives attention and explanation. Finally Tim Mosso and Mike Michaels answer your lives questions on topics in luxury watches.
