Welcome to Watch Video Rewind for this first weekend of August, 2016. We use this page to highlight watch related videos we think are interesting from around the web. Today, I am going a wee bit off topic, and instead of watches, I am going to highlight some clocks. I saw a post on Slate about a new clock installed in Lounge 2 at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, and I wanted to know more about the artists and his works.
Maarten Baas has a web site with a range of his creations, including a page devoted to his “Film Clocks”, like the Sweeper’s Clock above.
His Grandfather Clock series, looks like an earlier iteration of the Schiphol Clock, and one a bit more personal and whimsical.
And that brings us to the Schiphol Clock itself. If you are traveling through Amsterdam, be sure to check out the clock. And if you have 12 hours to kill, you can always make your own living clock video and re-purpose an old Grandfather Clock case to show off your own creative mind. If you do, just be sure to send us a snippet to post here.
And with that, I’ll wrap up 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.
