I just watched this video on YouTube by Watchfinder & Co, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It makes a point which is difficult to articulate without visuals – the difference between a rounded seconds hand finished by hand, and a machined seconds hand… or the finer details in a hand finished dial – this video beautifully demonstrates these points with excellent macro videography, and is well worth a watch (pun intended!).
Here’s the video description, and the video below. Enjoy!
Think of a number, any number. Take that number, stick a pound sign in front of it, and chances are, no matter how big or small it is, there’s a watch you can buy for that price. But just because you can spend the money, does that mean what you’re getting is worth it? To answer that question, we’ve got three watches: one for £2,000, one for £10,000 and one for £20,000. The question is, can you tell the difference?
