    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    If you can find it, "John Harrison and his Timekeepers".

    Longitude is a movie about John Harrison, not a documentary and more about a clock at first than watches, but it did get some excellent reviews. Also, search for RGM watches on YouTube and you'll find a series of videos about their company.
