Walter will address on his encounters functioning as an autonomous horologist. Walter positively meets the severe meaning of an autonomous horologist. A Liveryman of London’s Worshipful Company of Clockmakers , Walter lives and works in Santa Barbara, California. From Perth to London, Vienna to Perth, at that point to California, Walter will give bits of knowledge on the stuff to be a genuinely autonomous horologist in the present world.
