The Beauty of a Second

To celebrate the 190th anniversary of the invention of the chronograph by Nicolas Rieussec, the watchmaker Montblanc and noted film director Wim Wenders sponsored “The Beauty of a Second” Short Film Contest.

Almost 4000 people from all over the world submitted a single second of video of something they found beautiful. Some of the results are below.

Take a few seconds and watch.

While you watch, remember,

            “God has made all things beautiful in their time.” (Eccl 3:11)

While you watch, ask

            “What beauty is around me at this very second?”

When you see it,

            delight and give thanks to the King of Ages

                            who is the Source of all Beauty.
