At the very least, they ease the pain of what is often a heartbreaking situation.

With morning comes light

Whenever we chat about what's "in the air," inevitably talk turns to the weather and the changing climate, not just where we live but on all five continents. As the poet says, "with morning comes light" and morning, for me, is the year 2010 which just ended for Swiss watchmaking, an industry that is active across all four corners of the globe.
