Watches and aesthetics

Friends, since I started the YouTube channel I鈥檝e been obsessed with ahestics and presentation.

The shot on this post, for instance, took a lot of time, lights, and props. For a Timex World Timer, 1972 (which I love).

I feel like watches, being, so often, pieces of art an ingenuity, deserve the best presentation we can give them.

That鈥檚 the reason we buy nice boxes and frequently display our collection with such care and attention.

But I wonder, how much of that play into general interest when browsing through watch videos online?

What is your take? Do you care for the aesthetics of a video about your favorite watches?

To be totally truthful, I don't.

What are the most important things for you on a video review? Tech details? Seeing the watch on the wrist? Macros of the dial? Thanks for commenting, my friend!

I care more about the information provided. But with that being said I appreciate good production value and presentation. So if you can combine both should be a win win. I don't think you will hear to many complain about nice video or picture quality but the information must be there.

That makes total sense. it's nice to have both, but if we can only have one, the quality info goes above everything else. Thanks, my friend!

I think companies spend an absurd amount of money on marketing research and photgraphy. And why wouldn鈥檛 they? The goal is to make your product as attractive as possible to help with sales. Now how much of this actually works is a good question. If I see a watch I think looks good and someone makes it look better then I鈥檓 more likely to say 鈥渙h okay yeah I need that in my life.鈥 But yeah like I said this is a whole topic of discussion for marketing research and analytics. Even picking which subtle colors are in the background is thought out.

I do enjoy seeing high end and interesting production value when looking at a watch video. Whether it鈥檚 one I don鈥檛 know, or one I own

Very true. In the end, everything around the watch counts as packaging. Good point, my friend,.

I am a sucker for macro shots and beautiful cinematic views. 馃ぃ

I do a bunch of watch videography on my TikTok for the fun of it, it's fun trying to get a cool video shot of your watch for the aesthetic, I love a good b roll.

Btw, your YouTube link in your bio isn't working, would love to subscribe

I hear you. Is there anything that is not there though? Is anything missing that could be there and it's not? What would or could make you interested in watching video reviews again? Thanks for chiming in!
