Watches hatch from eggs

Feedback to watches hatch from eggs

Dear SpuriousMonkey,

Of course watches hatch from eggs; but a designer is not needed. The watches develop from the somite "clock" that is present in the 2-5 day embryo. Tbx4 is found in the long arm, and Tbx5 specifies the short hand of the watch.

Best wishes, Scott
