Watchmaker Montblanc: The Beauty of a Second (video)

Watchmaker Montblanc is celebrating the invention of time when Nicolas Rieussec recorded time to the accuracy of a fifth of a second 190 years ago... the birth of chronograph. 
Montblanc is celebrating by announcing a short-film contest hosted by the famous director Wim Wenders. The challenge of the contest is for video artist to seize the moment and record a single second of what the artist considers 'beautiful'... 
The subject can be anything you consider as beautiful: a smile, a child's face, a flower, a piece of the world around you, as long as the video lasts only one second. Capture your second beauty now and get the chance to win a Montblanc Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph. 
The contest is open to everyone... professionals, amateurs and even everyday people with a cell phone camera. Below are two videos, the first is of film maker Wim Wenders describing this one-of-a-kind video contest and the second video is a compilation of the one second videos that were submitted. Very Very Very Cool... enjoy!
