This is not fresh news per se but Bill Yao (founder of legendary MKII watch company) announced on February 10th 2010 his decision to stop selling parts (dials, hands and case parts) to focus on complete watches only.
Mr. Yao started his business by selling modding parts for ETA-based watches (mainly dials and hands), and success allowed him to move towards the design of complete watches and the acquisition of the legendary Tornek-Rayville trademark.
The entrepreneur eventually found himself overwhelmed by the combined demands of development, orders fulfillment and family life. This new focus on complete watches seems logical to me. I bid Mr. Yao good luck on his new endeavour.
