Since our travel budget can’t absorb tickets to Switzerland, I am going to have to enjoy Basel virtually, hence the all BaselWorld 2016 edition of Watching Video Rewind. Yes, this is our weekly feature where we highlight watch videos we think might be of interest. I have a tourbillon from Tag Heuer, new watches from Seiko and Breitling. I usually start pulling this together before I look at the previous week’s article, but I am always amazed how Patrick and I frequently key in on totally different watches, even when we are looking at videos from the same event. If you have not checked it out, go look at last weeks videos for a different take on the show.
This is a watch that almost made it into yesterdays Watching the Web, but instead I am going to let Ariel from ABTW walk you though this affordable (by Swiss standards) tourbillon from the Tag Carrera line.
Next up is a rundown of Seiko watches from Basel. These run the gamut from the very affordable up to the very high-end Grand Seiko line.
Finally, Jean-Paul Girardin of Breitling talks up their technological advancements, including a new material called Breitlight, which is lighter and more scratch resistant that titanium, as well as the use of carbon fiber.
That’s it for this week’s edition of 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.
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.
