Thanks for popping in to our regular Sunday feature, the Watch Video Rewind, where we point out watch related videos we come across that we think are of interest. Today, I am going to combine the Watch Video Rewind with a bit of Historical Horology, and point out some museums and museum exhibits related to the watch world.
The first video has Roland Murphy, head of RGM watches, taking us on a tour of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors Museum in Columbia, PA.
The next video is from theWatchesTV, which takes us on a tour of the “Telling Time” exhibition at the Mudac Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, exploring different ways that artists can, and have, craft time telling devices.
Staying with the exhibit, the museum has their own video presentation, although the audio is not in English. Thankfully, there is an autotranslate option for the subtitles.
Finally, we’ll head back to the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors Museum to check out an exhibit of the quartz watches worn by James Bond
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 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.
