quote [ Interactive article explaining how a mechanical watch works. ]

Their visual demonstrations are excellent.
I also recommend this latest one about how bicycles work

This was a really good exhibit. I've restored spring driven clocks and grandfather clocks which share some similarities and mechanical concepts and I thought this was cool.

This is fascinating, and the demonstrations really are excellent.

Fabulous, but I have a few questions:
-how do you read the watch face with no numbers?
-if I look into my applewatch will I see the same thing?
-who paid for this elaborate explanation?

> who paid for this elaborate explanation?

this is a blog of interactive infographics dating back some years and being wildly popular among tech people.

So I guess there is more to the internet than pornography.
Although, I suppose, the mechanics of a watch are akin to pornography, right?

Come back to say I just finished this over several hours and it's brilliant.
