Historical Horology: How A Mechanical Watch Works

Hamilton_movement

I had a friend send me a link for this video, and I knew this would be something perfect for this Sunday series of posts.

It”s a movie made by the Hamilton back in 1949 as to how a mechanical watch actually functions.  Aside from just the subject matter, I think this is a great example of how informational videos were made back in that era, especially the tone/pacing of the narration.

Additionally, the use of an oversized model really gives you a great sense of what parts are involved in making a watch work, and how they work together.  If for some reason the embed breaks, you can head on over to view the video.
