This one may well sink like a stone...
I was looking at my watch just now and thinking about the pic I took of it earlier for today's WRUW thread and I realised that the most amazing and beautiful thing about watches can't be captured in a still image.

Here then is my attempt to create a thread dedicated to watches in motion. An ongoing wrist check where only videos are allowed.

Here's my not very good first attempt, maybe next time I'll take the watch off and place it and the camera on a stable surface.


Oh, big tip - use the film button above not the Youtube one!

I like the idea of the video but I'd have to agree with horrovac that the shaking is annoying. Maybe not wrist vids but just stationary vids would be best?

I love this idea. I'm wondering about what a good setup would be since I don't think a gorillapod will let me point my phone straight down. Any suggestions for someone who wants to make do with the video recording capabilities of his phone?

I think it's rather similar to a pic just showing the dial but if the watch was set down on a place-mat and revolved to show the sides, case-back, bracelet etc it would be a great way to quickly showcase a watch.

Very cool idea, what. I'm on dial-up, (I know get into the 21st century, TDHO!) So little thirty second blurbs are easier to handle. I also concur that off the wrist might be the better option. Thing is, you've said it correctly and the idea is sound that these are motion objects, better served by seeing them so.

Thanks to everyone for the comments and to JarrodS and chriswalkerband for joining in.
Here's today`s hopefully slightly less nauseating attempt.
I'm also going to start posting a direct link for smartphone users.

How do I post youtube video here?
Copy the link to the video from the address bar on YouTube. This will be something like "YouTube.com/watch?v=shdykf"
Click the film icon above the field on WUS where you type your post (in-between the photo icon and the quote one).
Paste the link into the box that opens up.
Click ok and you're done!

Oh, whatmeworry

Such an excellent idea! My recent purchase:

Thinking of getting a yellow striped NATO on this - ideas where to get one?
Tho, next up: a phone with a better camera! (HTC Deside doesn't cut it)
