Happy Father’s Day, and thanks for popping over and checking out the week’s Watch Video Rewind, our weekly feature where we bring to light watch related videos from the web that we think are interesting. Today, I have a bit of a hodgepodge of videos that I stumbled across this week.
First up is a review of the Apple Watch from the most unlikely of places, the former Speaker of the House and Presidential Candidate, Newt Gingrich. Whether you like his politics or not, he is an interesting individual and he is certainly intelligent, and the review (courtesy of Mashable) is well suited for those of us that are not tech power users, and it is pretty funny in parts.
On the other side of videos regarding the Apple Watch, have you ever wondered if “it will blend?” Well, the folks over at Blendtec have run lots of things through their blenders, so why not the Apple Watch?
There are plenty of skeleton watches out there, but there are not too many transparent watches out there with hidden movements, and Quinting does it better than anyone else. Now, the movement is there, but it is designed to sit around the outside of the watch, a cylindrical bit of machinery with the center empty space. The hands are on sapphire disks, so everything can look like it is floating. If you want to read more about this high end Swiss manufacturer, check out their web site.
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.
