history-featuredThanks for popping in to our regular Sunday feature, the Watch Video Rewind, where we point out watch related videos we come across that we think are of interest.  Today, I am going to combine the Watch Video Rewind with a bit of Historical Horology, and point out some museums and museum exhibits related to the watch world.

The first video has Roland Murphy, head of RGM watches, taking us on a tour of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors Museum in Columbia, PA.

The next video is from theWatchesTV, which takes us on a tour of the “Telling Time” exhibition at the Mudac Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, exploring different ways that artists can, and have, craft time telling devices.

Staying with the exhibit, the museum has their own video presentation, although the audio is not in English.  Thankfully, there is an autotranslate option for the subtitles.

Finally, we’ll head back to the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors Museum to check out an exhibit of the quartz watches worn by James Bond

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.
