The Beauty of a Second is a one-second short film contest, hosted by Wim Wenders and Montblanc, in tribute to the man who invented the chronograph, Nicolas Rieussec. An exploration of presision and art – a homage to capturing the smallest fragments of time.

People were asked to submit one second-long videos. From the submissions, we created 60 second compilations of the best videos from each round. These were published on vimeo and youtube. The content created received millions of views, helping us get even more people to submit seconds to the competition. This made it more successful than we could have ever imagined.
