  18. 18. passionate about watches print edition wf&Co. issue one watChfinder&Co. time is running out for the traditional watchmaker. can wf&co.’s tony williams step in? page 4 t hebiscuittinidealofawhite-hairedwatchmaker, bent double at his bench as he labours over a movement from the first screw-turn to the last, is a scene not long for this modern world. The traditional, timeworn artisan is being rapidly eclipsed by someone cheaper, easier to train and ultimately less traditional - the sequential worker. Think of sequential watchmaking as you would a car assembly line: each worker along a chain has a specific duty, adding a screw, tightening a bolt, gradually piecing together the final product.
