Watch: Seiko’s Tiny Rube Goldberg Machine

As I’ve stated many times here before, my favorite watch ever is a Seiko 5 Sports automatic. It looks cool, is extremely affordable, and has a beautiful automatic movement. For total value and bang for your buck, Seiko is always the first brand I recommend.

Rube Goldberg is most well know for coming up with zany, endlessly complex machines that use a series of increasingly complicated chain reactions to accomplish relatively simple tasks. These days, Rub Goldberg machines are usually performed as large scale stunts, like in OK Go’s music video for “This Too Shall Pass.”

This time, Seiko has shrunk down the scale to be almost impossibly intricate and small, but no less impressive. If you are enjoy the art of watchmaking, you’ll be fascinated by Seiko’s production. Check it out!

EDIT: Added a new video review below!

There isn’t a better timepiece out there. If you can only get one watch, you shouldn’t have to look anywhere else. Here’s why.
