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.Â 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.Â 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.Â 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.Â 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.
Thatâ€™s it for this weekâ€™s watch video rewind.Â 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, weâ€™ll be sure to tip our hats (electronically, if not literally) in your general direction.
