    • Via the essential Tumblr Ozu Teapot, director Yasujiro Ozu's stopwatch:This is the stopwatch which Ozu had specially built. He used it all through the years. With this watch, he recorded the times for every scene, including inserts. The red line shows how much film stock has been shot in the standard 35 millimeter format. The middle line give the seconds. And the third one here indicates the footage for the 60-millimeter format. This stopwatch was important for Ozu in order to precisely measure time in seconds and in frames.
