Fred Dingemans of d.m.h. watches: shedworker

Fred Dingemans makes watches. Really nice ones. As Hodinkee comments in a fascinating article, his Dingemans Mechanische Horloges company - which is based in a garden office shed at his home in the Netherlands, pictured above - makes unique handcrafted watches, "a throwback to days long since defeated by an age of electronics and mass production". There's a considerable waiting list for his work (not least because he only makes one a month) which is all undertaken in his tool shed using tools which date back several decades including a 1947 lathe.
