Marcus talks ceramic IWCs, and how to shoot watches with Lego and sandBorna Bošnjak
You can count on Marcus to bring you some great insider info – whether that’s showing you how to create a unique environment for shooting a watch or eat a banana while being followed by a high-tech gimbal. And if you’re wondering what the hell this series is all about – make sure you check out the introduction into our new, more casual format. In a nutshell, Marcus just happens to be a non-nerdy watch lover who has a unique way of presenting that on camera, so what better way to make than happen than have him tell you about it! And if you’re wondering where the Lego comes in, well, the link is just below.
Just before jetting off to Dubai Watch Week, Marcus finds himself unboxing an Oris alongside two IWC Pilot’s Watches. In a matter of moments, and with the help of a prop or two, the first watch is framed. Despite getting a little more technical than in the first episode – don’t worry. We haven’t turned Marcus into a bitter watch nerd, shaking his fist at misplaced date windows. Nevertheless, he’ll go into the history of the Oris x Fratello limited edition a little more, as well as explore the colouring prowess of the new ceramic-cased Mojave Chronograph 41 and Ceratanium Timezoner Woodland. Without spoiling too much, if you’ve ever wondered how to use just enough sand to make sure it doesn’t permeate a watch case, but enough to provide a stunning, beige background – this is the video for you. Throw in a few patinated leather pieces, and you’ve got yourself the makings of a Time+Tide video review.
Most importantly – this isn’t a one-sided series. In fact, Marcus puts it to you, dear reader/viewer. What do you want to see him explore in future episodes of In The Metal? Is it more non-nerdy quick facts, or more in-depth breakdowns of the process of shooting watches? As usual, Marcus will be reading your comments – so make sure you leave one!
