Notes or transcript:  “It isn’t the material that goes into your repaired watch that results in a perfect job – it is the KNOW-HOW that does the business. Any bungler can buy the fine kinds of material that I use in repairing but SKILL is the most valuable material that can be used in Watch Repairing and the bungler can’t buy it. I sell my skill for what it is worth, and it will cost you less than bungling at a lower price. R. A. Walker, Watchmaker and Jeweler.”
