Watch Video Rewind for August 14, 2016

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, and I would like to thank you for sharing part of it with us and checking out this edition of Watch Video Rewind, where we find watch related videos and bring them to your attention. As part of my job of scouring the internet for the weekly Watching the Web, I came across a review of Laps watches, simple timepieces with a bit of whimsy in their presentation. So I thought I would try to track down other makers that might put a smile on your face as you glance down at your wrist.

Introducing the Virata VRT1 Series

Somewhere along the way, I became rather drawn to interestng case shapes. Then again, that should not be all that surprising. There is plenty to like about a well-executed, classic case design, as production (and sales) numbers will attest. With the flood of watches from new brands though, how best to stand out? Prior to today’s example, the best one I can point to, in terms of standing out with a new case, was Visitor Watch Co. Well, there’s a new (patented) case out in the world, in the form of the Virata VRT1 series.

Introducing the Drawing 17 from Projects Watches

When it comes to watches, I am generally able to figure out how to read the time on the watch, as well as grasping at least the basics of how it is things are being indicated on the dial. With a simple three-hander, there’s not much to decipher, as it’s rather familiar. You can get into some esoteric designs and displays though, and then it gets a bit trickier. I will admit, when I first saw the images of the Drawing 17 from Projects Watches, I finally had to ask the brand to enlighten me as to how it was working.
