How a Watch Works
761 17 142739
Vintage video (1949) from Hamilton Watch Co. explaining how a mechanical watch works.
This short movie gives a simple demonstration of the working principle of a mechanical watch. "The inside story of a fine watch" is shown on a giant in-line movement, exact and to scale in every detail. The function of each part is demonstrated as the huge watch is assembled and disassembled.
This is a shorten version of the original movie (1949) produced by the Jam Handy Orginization for Hamilton Watch Company.
The original version can be downloaded on archive.org

I have recently became interested with the inner workings of watches and found this 1949 video to be a perfect explanation of the underlying concept of a watch movement mechanism: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYBvt9kA3bE
