Welcome back to the Watch Video Rewind, our weekly feature where we bring to light watch related videos from the web that we think are interesting. Today, we have a watch assembly video, a video from GoS, and some insight on why Gruebel-Forsey puts so much emphasis on hand-finishing.
I have been very intrigued by the online watchmaking courses that you can take. I do not have the time to devote to it now, but it seems like it would provide a very solid foundation for understanding what is going on inside of the watch that is on your wrist (especially if you built it!) This video shows us, in a time-lapse, a successful build of a student who has gone through the courses.
It’s no secret that I really love the look of damascus steel, and what GoS has built into their watches is nothing short of stunning. This video gives a nice overview of the Summer watch from their Nordic Seasons lineup.
Finally, from TheWatches.TV, we have a video talking all about hand-finishing at Gruebel-Forsey, including an interview with Stephen Forsey himself on why this hand-finishing gets so much attention at the brand. It’s an interesting bit of insight, and a tip of the hat goes to Quill & Pad for bringing it to my attention.
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.
