It was a busy morning in the city of Paris, France. Russell Gautier, a 28-year-old watchmaker, stared at the events unfolding before him down onto the streets below from his workshop on the second floor. The streets were bustling with people going about their daily routines, either working or shopping for groceries. Tourists were exploring the city, their curiosity becoming sparked due to the city’s history and lore. The aroma of freshly baked pastries, coffee, and flowers traveled into the workshop through the open window. After a few moments, the bell on the cathedral tolled ten times signaling the change of the hour.
Russell turned his back to the open window and began to work. His workshop has wooden flooring and grayish green wallpaper. It consisted of a mahogany desk with a wooden chair, and wooden bookshelves lining the walls, filled to the brim with cogs, springs, screws, and other parts necessary for clocks and watches, along with tools, and written manuals
