The Watch Video Rewind for July 27, 2014
It’s Sunday, so that means it’s time for some lazy morning watching, courtesy of the Watch Video Rewind. While past installments of this series have had a handful of videos in them. Today, I’ve only got one video for you – but what a doozy it is!
Today, I’ve got a video on the Art of Watchmaking, from Parmigiani. Now, as I’ve mentioned in the past, I really enjoy seeing watches built and/or taken apart. With those videos (at least the ones I’ve found in the past), they’re solely focused in on the watch, with some sort of soundtrack overlaid to it, giving you a quick (five minute or so) view into the process.
This video, however, interviews the people who are working on making the parts and putting them all together. These folks are French-speaking, so you’ll need to read the subtitles (in English), but I think it gives a whole new element to the process. These interviews are interspersed with the actual work being done, so it makes for a good viewing.
You may want to get yourself comfortable for this one, though – it clocks in at just over 53 minutes!
