Welcome back to our regular feature, the Watch Video Rewind. In this series, we bring to light videos we feel are interesting and worth sharing out with our readers. Last week, Matt mentioned that we hadn’t had many videos that were truly educational. Well, I’ve corrected that this week. Read on to see what we have in store.
First up, we have a video that is the very definition of education – the create of a “watch school” watch. More precisely, it is the building up of a movement, but it is still an intriguing view, especially if you have ever considered going into watchmaking. It is not as flashily produced as some other videos we’ve seen, but it does give a feel for the work involved.
If you do get into watchmaking, ever wonder if some of those tools could be used for other purposes? Well, of course they can! In this video, we see a watchmaker’s lathe getting used to create a brass canon out of an old key.
If you’d like to use their tools for their originally-intended purposes, then perhaps this video, from Roger Smith, will be of interest. In it, he walks through burnishing pivots, and then closes things out with fitting a wheel on.
That’s it for this week. If you stumble across any interesting watch 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.
