Hello and welcome to our first May edition of Watch Video Rewind, where we post various watch related video we find of interest. This week, I am carrying on a series Patrick started last week, as well as adding a few related stories, all centered on Frederique Constant. If there are any budding filmmakers out there with interesting stories regarding their watches, I challenge you to make your own Watch Stories video, load it up at YouTube or Vimeo, and send us a link, and we may just feature it here in a future week.
Our first video is a Watch Story regarding a Frederique Constant watch that the current owner is hoping becomes a family heirloom.
About 2 years ago, A Blog To Watch ran a contest where they took the contest winner to the Frederique Constant factory in Switzerland to try their hand at making their own watch. The amusing and informative video above shows the (highly edited) process.
If you want to check out the watch that they built, Worn & Wound did a review of the Frederique Constant Slimline Moonphase, this time built by the factory, not by a pair of watch enthusiasts.
Finally, if you want to see what the brand has in store for 2016, the WatchesTV took a look at their new offerings at Baselworld.
That’s it for this week’s edition of Watch Video Rewind. If you stumble across any interesting watch (or time) related videos out there, or if you make your own Watch Story, drop us a line. If we end up using in the watch video rewind 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.
