    The only thing I have seen close is How its made did at least 2 episodes on watches. One on Blancpain and one on Panerai (the Panerai one is in two parts) I am sure there are more shorts on youtube as well.

    ^ Both are really good episodes. They kind of gloss over certain bits, but overall they're worth watching.

    Er...no pun intended.

    This is a fun 25 minute show from the UK in the 1980's called, "The Secret Life of Machines". In the episode below they deal with quartz watches (and also how LCD displays work), but a big chunk of the episode discusses the history of the mechanical clock and watch before quartz.

    Yes, they both left me wanting more and occasionally it gets a little dumbed down. I do like seeing the different levels of automation.

    You can find a variety of videos on archive.org. I like this one about Hamilton (the real one).

    Is the documentary about George Daniels available anywhere? I saw it last year at QP Salon in London, hoping I could see it again.

    This is an excellent one about our fascination with watches.
