It has been a little while since I last posted here I know. This intermission has been due to a number of factors, one of which the usual summer hiatus to accommodate some sort of holiday, but life has also had its say in diverting my attention elsewhere. However, normal service looks like it may be in danger of being resumed, and as evidence of that, this short post introduces a moving picture preamble to the next project.
The video linked below presents an overview of a number of high beat 61 series Grand Seiko watches, all of which somehow interconnected in providing context to or ingredients or inspiration for projects past, present and future. You will see that the narrative eventually directs our attention to a Grand Seiko 6146-8000 dating from 1969 and it is this watch that will find itself the subject of an upcoming blog post.
You may notice some sort of advance in production values compared to my last effort but my diversion into augmented video content is still very much a work in progress and so, as with the last, try to overlook obvious areas of clunk!
