Welcome to our regular Sunday feature, Watch Video Rewind, where we point you to videos of interest related (at least somewhat) to watches or watch making. This week, we have two rather lengthy (but still interesting) videos on watches from the gang over at the National Watch & Clock Museum that also have us verging into Historical Horology territory.
This first video dives into the beginning of the wrist watch. Fair warning, the audio on this is a bit quiet (and spotty), so crank up your headphones for this one. It appears that these are from webinars, so you have a variety of information presented.
Next up, from the same folks, we have a similar topic – but this time, it focuses in on the start of automatic wrist watches. Fortunately, the audio quality is better in this one.
That’s it for this week’s watch video rewind. Yeah, there are only two videos, but they are both length (and chock full of information). 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.
