For this year’s instalment of the T+T version of “these are a few of my favourite things”, I’m going to substitute noodles, poodles, and brown paper packages tied up with string for videos. So, without any further Julie Andrews’ references, here are five of my favourite videos.
Russell Crowe talks exclusively to us about the stories behind his watches, and why he’s selling them
Unsurprisingly, our video with the Kiwi who became an actor, who became a star, who collected watches (AKA Russell Crowe) was popular. In fact, it’s our most popular video to date, with a cool half a million views and a total watch time of more than 2.5 million minutes. Are you not entertained?
I ditched my mechanical watch for the Apple Watch Series 3 Edition, and this is what I discovered
Fun little bit of backstory: I filmed this review while nursing a fairly terrible migraine. But headaches aside, I think this video came together really well, and the watch is quite excellent, regardless of what the inevitable YouTube comments storm might say.
Felix’s top 10 watches from Baselworld 2018
This is a great example of the Andrew and Felix double act in full flight. In addition to still being a solid list of watches, I’m pretty sure this was a single take, which is nice.
What makes a travel watch? Exploring Rome with the Longines Conquest V.H.P. GMT Flash Setting
The V.H.P. GMT is one of the coolest GMT watches I’ve seen in a while, and having the chance to put it through its paces in Rome is something I just couldn’t pass up. But really it’s the video I’m most proud of — our videographer Marcus Flack knocked this one out of the park.
Which Panerai Submersible is right for you?
Even though it’s only a few weeks old, this atmospheric aquarium shoot was a real highlight of my year. Big watches and even bigger sharks. What a combo.
