Welcome to a new month, and our regular Sunday feature, the Watch Video Rewind. In this series, we like to take a break from words about watches, and instead bring you videos about watches, watch making, or sometimes even music about watches. In this week’s edition, we have a couple of factory tours, and a couple of “Watch Stories” videos, which dives into the background of favorite watches of some prominent people.
First up, we have a visit to Alpina’s HQ in Switzerland. Â Ostensibly it’s all about their smart watch (which is just like the Frederique Constant version), but it’s also a factory tour of sorts, with some testing and the like.
What’s that, you want another factory tour? Â Ok, you’ve got it! Â This time, let’s head over to Japan and visit Seiko. Â This one is a bit different, as it a bunch of stills stitched together and set to music. Just pretend you were the one taking the pictures!
For the first “Watch Stories” video, I wanted to highlight this one on the Vulcain Cricket, as I am fascinated by mechanical watches that have alarm functions.
For our other Watch Stories video, we have on on a vintange Junghans Max Bill, which is a stunning design, whether vintage or vintage-inspired.
Thatâ€™s it for this weekâ€™s edition of 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.
