The making of a Panerai

The Science Channel’s How it’s Made program, which shows how everyday things are created, recently took a horological bent, with an engaging and educational look at how a watch (in this case a Panerai) is made. Even for those of us who are Panerai owners it was still really interesting, as I had never seen footage of many of these processes.

Take a look. It’s fascinating, regardless of whether you’re a watch person or not, to see each step and to find out how much of this particular creation is automated and how much is done by hand.

Part two –

Now tell me how you can watch this and NOT immediately want to go out and buy a mechanical watch?
