Welcome to Watch Video Rewind for November 29, 2015, our weekly installment where we highlight interesting watch related videos that we find across the web. Today will be a bit of a potpourri, with videos highlighting a couple of topics that answer some questions I have about watches.
First up there is this great animation of the MB&F Legacy Machine Perpetual Calendar complication from Hodinkee. One of the reasons I prefer not to have date wheels is that they tend to be too small for my aging eyes, but I also don’t like having to reset them every other month. This video addresses how a perpetual calendar tracks the days of the month, and even the leap years.
Next up is a short time lapse video showing the difference between a couple of forms of illumination for our watches, luminous paint, SuperLumiNova paint and tritium tubes.
Lastly, from TheWatchesTV comes parts 2 and 3 of a video series about chronograph features. Part 1 talks about the history, while Part 2 (above) describes various features of the chronograph and Part 3 (below) talks about the flyback feature found on some watches.
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.
