watch-collection-essentials

With the 2016 Summer season officially kicking-off next week on June 20th and millions of Americans planning deep-sea diving vacations, we’re focusing on affordable diver’s watch essentials under $500 for your timepiece collection. A true diver’s watch should be water-resistant to 200 meters or more and feature both a screw-down crown and case back to ensure that no water or moisture enters the inner chamber of the watch. The watch case and band material should be impervious to salt water to not rust or corrode. Both stainless steel and titanium are excellent metal choices, while rubber and silicone are excellent strap materials for…

It’s Got To Be A Wittnauer!

Wittnauer Watches Now Available

For generations Wittnauer Watches have been one of the most respected and revered American watchmakers in the world. The brand was established in 1885 in New York, NY by Swiss watchmaker Albert Wittnauer and F. Eugene Robert, an importer of Swiss watches who joined together to produce American made watches with Swiss movements at affordable prices. The Wittnauer brand immediately found its niche producing scientific and private exploration timepieces for navigators, explorers and astronomers. The US Navy employed Wittnauer in the early 1900’s for aviation and navigation purposes. During the First World War, Wittnauer produced timepieces and instruments for aviation units.…

3 Great Watches for Fly Fishing

Watches for Fly Fishing

Fly fishing.  If you’ve spent any amount of time chasing trout in tiny mountain streams or targeting bonefish in the Florida flats, you’ll know that there’s a culture that surrounds this sport that is truly unique.  I grew up in Western New York pursuing native, stocked and lake run trout in rivers and streams almost all year long.  I’ve recently moved to Miami, and I’m looking forward to transitioning to salt water… and getting after snook, reds, bones  and maybe even tarpon. Regardless of what you fly fish for, you’ll likely recognize three distinct activities that are part and parcel…

All my friends are getting married and it doesn’t look like there’s any end in sight. I love how I’m talking about this as if I’m not contributing to the problem, but helloooo I’m getting married next year.

womens fashion week

The adage that Watch Lover mentioned in his Men’s Fashion Week recap: If you stick around long enough, everything old is new again certainly holds true for Women’s Fashion Week 2016. Retro-inspired styles from the Victorian age, 1970’s and 1990’s are making a comeback in many of the designer’s Fall and Winter collections. We’re seeing a lot of puffy sleeves, ruffled hemlines and high-collar necklines from the Victorian age. Oh, and lots and lots of head-to-toe floral prints. Not the biggest fan of this trend, but to each her own. The 70’s band babe was also heavily represented on the…

Bulova Watches

Jeans make up a good portion of everyone’s wardrobe. From popular styles from Levis and Wrangler to designer brands Diesel, For All Mankind and Lucky to higher-end luxury designs from Ralph Lauren Black Label, Gucci and Hugo Boss, five-pocket jeans are a fashion mainstay.

In 1905, Levi Strauss added a second back pocket and five pocket jeans have become the standard ever…

Today popular companies from Starbucks,…

Prominent watchmakers from TAG Heuer, Ebel, Rolex, Omega and Cartier to Invicta, Swiss Legend, Michael Kors and Casio all feature an impressive selection of men’s and women’s chronographs in their assortments. Chronographs are characterized by the independent stop-watch and display watch functions on a dial that are normally featured on a separate subdial window.
