I remember a few years ago, 2 the minimum if my memory serves me, that watchmaking is a dead business. Even the us education dept. considered it dead and buried with less than 100 students per year taking it.

today though, with watchmaking (back) on the rise, the supply of workers is much less than the demand.

everything, well most thing at least, is cyclical. we'd expect so called researchers to have much longer timelines in their research than the immeduate ones.
