    How a watch works - 1949 vintage video of simple watch mechanism.

    Hi All.
    I'm not sure whether a link to this video has been posted previously.
    It's very grainy and extremely 'old school', but I found it a fascinating insight into the basics of a mechanical watch

    Even if you know all about watches, maybe your missus and kids might find it interesting.
    I just hope the link works.
    Cheers.

    Thoroughly enjoyable, noiseboyuk. Love old films anyway, but the explanations for complete beginners like me were very interesting, especially the giant movement. Wearing a manual wind movement now so pertinent as well.

    Thanks for the link
