Andreas Tiebel, 32, works in the production department—and is giving away a tin of chocolate caviar together with a golden spoon.
»Watchmaking is almost a form of micro-technology now. For many, the dimensions with which we work are almost unimaginable. Do you now what a micrometer looks like? Exactly! It is invisible to the unaided eye. A micrometer is one millionth of a meter, or one thousandth of a millimeter, meaning it is thinner than a strand of hair. Having to be so meticulous in my job has also made me precise in my private life: Whatever I do has to be flawless. Even if it is of little consequence. If a picture somewhere is ever so slightly squint … I can’t stand it! I have to straighten it up immediately. There is only one exception, since I have no sense of scale for it: I love anything made of chocolate. All the better if it comes in larger units!
I therefore had to carry out stringent quality assurance of my gift. This beautiful tin of chocolate caviar was once in the kitchen for all employees to enjoy—I discovered it too early, and not much was left over for my colleagues. Perhaps someone else can do a better job of sharing this unopened tin. Good luck—and bon appétit!«
