There are no Rock the Boat items in this issue. These are meant to be comments no longer than half a page
on horological topics, including controversial ones, but not personal. This is a quick way to write a
short article, convey an important idea or ask a question.
Request for articles: New material is always needed and appreciated. Are you or someone you know working
on something that would interest our readership? Please contact me if you need help getting your ideas
and work into print.
