Welcome to Watch Video Rewind, our regular look at watch related videos from around the web. Today we have a bit of an ecletic mix, with some new watches being built, a comparison of inexpensive (vs more expensive) watches, and then a length servicing video.
First up, we have a Seiko Spring Drive getting built up. These are an interesting mix of electrical and mechanical, and I don’t know that I had seen one of these being built before.
Next up, we have a video about something that all of us have likely been asked, or asked ourselves – what is the difference between similar looking watches, one that costs $30, and another that costs $300? Check out this comparison of a Timex and a Hamilton.
Then again, we also have watches much more expensive than those.
And we’ll wrap things up with something that the bargain hunters might run into in the secondary market – a movement that is definitely in need of some maintenance and TLC. This particular example runs through a teardown of a Valjoux 7750.
That’s it for this week’s watch video rewind. If you stumble across any interesting watch (or time) related videos out there, drop us a line. If we end up using it from your suggestion, we’ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
