An Electrical Engineering View of a Mechanical Watch Videos for Engineers
In this MIT electrical engineering lecture, Professor Sussman explains how a mechanical watch mechanism relates to
an electrical oscillator circuit consisting of resistors, capacitors, and inductors. Sussman is a life member of
the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute and exploits his expertise by demonstrating via close-up camera how
various parts of the watch function while explaining how they relate to electrical components. This goes far
beyond the comparatively lame textbook and classroom examples most of us have experienced in college.
