We continue the story of Aaron Becsei, who polishes, spheres, and pearls a bunch of parts of his famous watches on the far earth - especially those that don't appear at all. If anyone were to raise their eyebrows with no sense, it would talk to you on the one hand and check out the previous Gentleman magazine for some art theory introduction on the other.
