Welcome back to our regular feature, the Watch Video Rewind. Â In this series, we bring to light videos we feel are interesting and worth sharing out with our readers. Â Last week, Matt mentioned that we hadn’t had many videos that were truly educational. Â Well, I’ve corrected that this week. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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? Â Well, of course they can! Â 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. Â In it, he walks through burnishing pivots, and then closes things out with fitting a wheel on.
That’s it for this week.Â If you stumble across any interesting watch related videos out there, drop us a line. If we end up using it from your suggestion, weâ€™ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.
