For Wired’s “Deconstructed” video series, CW21-certified watchmaker Ryan Jewell does a part-by-part break down as he disassembles both a Japanese and a Swiss movement. He compares the differences between the manufacturing of each but more than that he gives a highly descriptive explanation of virtually every part of the watch movement and how each component interacts with one another to make the watch function.
