High Tech in Unexpected Places

I had thought about gettting a smartwatch after seeing the Motorola Moto360 prototypes. They are round and look like a watch. Plus it's really what your would call wearable technology. I came across an article in the Economist that proposes high-end mechanical watches are actually more innovative and advanced than anything digital on offer. The prices for these watches are high but there is already a trickle-down effect. For example Omega is workign to make all of its in-house movement anti-magnetic by using silicon and other parts. Omega is a Swatch brand and don't be surprised to see this and other technologies incorporated by Swatch's "mid-level" brands soon. Have a look at the article and let's hear what you think.
