It’s Sunday, so that means it’s time for some lazy morning watching, courtesy of the Watch Video Rewind.  Today, we’ve got a Rolex getting taken apart, a hands-on review of the Omega Constellation, and a very musical wristwatch.

The Video Rewind For June 8, 2014

Posted on 08 June 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Alright, it’s Sunday, and that means one of two things – time to drop some knowledge via Historical Horology, or take a gander at some moving pictures.  Though, I’m guessing you’ve figured out that we’re going to go the video route today.  If you were hoping for some learning, though, we’ve got you covered.  The first video we’ve got gives a nice overview of the gear train in a mechanical watch.  No sound on this one, so be sure to keep an eye on the captions that come up.

We’ll keep the learning going with something that could very well be a lifesaving skill for you someday – how to use your watch as a compass:

Last, but certainly not least, we’ll toss up a video from the ABTW channel, this time covering a review of a diver from OWC.  They’re an Australian brand I’ve followed for some time, and was glad to see get some attention from our sister site:

And with that, we’ll wrap things up for today.  If you’ve got a video you think we should take a look at, feel free to drop us a line.

The Sunday Video Rewind For May 25, 2014

Posted on 25 May 2014 by Patrick Kansa

So, the last Video Rewind post went over pretty well, so I thought I’d scare up a few more for you to check out today.  First up, we’ve got one from the folks over at Timex that give a sort of artistic look at their Intelligent Quartz series:

Flipping to the other end of the watch-buying spectrum, the WSJ (Digital Edition) takes look at what goes on in a private watch shopping room in Hong Kong (including a minute repeater around the 4:30 mark):

And last, but not least, we’ve got a musical interlude.  Never quite sure what searching random videos will turn up, but I ran across this one called “Irish Wristwatch”:

(if you’d prefer a more studio-quality version, here it is):

And with that, we’ll wrap things up for today.  If you’ve got a video you think we should take a look at, feel free to drop us a line.

The Sunday Video Rewind

Posted on 04 May 2014 by Patrick Kansa

Alright, I don’t know if this will be a regular feature or not, but I had a couple of great videos sent over by a friend this week (and I’ve a paucity of content for Historical Horology).  So, I thought why not give you some easy viewing here for your Sunday.

First up is a video from Nomos Glashuette that takes you from the creation of some rather small components, all the way through to final assembly and boxing.  There’s a lot to like about this video, but the amazing segment is the laser engraving – it literally looks like magic.

For those looking for some history with their Sunday installment, we’ve got you covered with this video from TheWatches.tv, where they’re going through the evolution of the JLC Gyrotourbillon.  Definitely interesting to get some inside background on this watch.

And that’ll wrap things up for today.  If you’ve got something for another Video Rewind, or Historical Horology, feel free to drop us a line.
