Timely Game-Changers!

The official NFL Football Season kicked off this weekend with the Super Bowl rivals the Carolina Panthers facing off against the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium in Denver, CO last night. Although the journey to this year’s Super Bowl at NRG Stadium in Houston, TX on February 5, 2017 is months away and the names of the two top winning teams is anyone’s guess, there is currently much speculation of who will be kicking off in Houston for the big game.

Watch Collection Essentials: Pilot Watches

watch-collection-essentials

A Pilot watch is another timepiece essential to consider for your collection. Pilot watches have long been associated with precision timepieces since the very origin of men’s wristwatches in 1904, when jeweler and watchmaker Louis Cartier designed a timepiece for colleague Alberto Santos-Dumont to wear on his wrist while flying. Pocket watches were favored by men at the time, yet were too cumbersome to use when flying in a single engine plane. The first Cartier Santos wristwatch featured a square-shaped case with rounded edges on the lugs and a leather strap that comfortably fit on the wrist. Santos-Dumont always wore the…

The Lightness Of Being…

Solar power is a viable and environmentally friendly source of energy. Originally developed in the 1980’s, solar power relies on reflective lenses or mirrors to track sunlight into beams of light and convert these beams into electrical currents. It is estimated that by 2050, sixteen percent of the worldwide energy consumption will be solar powered. Interestingly the solar power concept was originally conceived in the late 1970’s with the introduction of calculators from Casio and Texas Instruments and select timepieces featuring solar panels. The solar watch was developed and conceptualized by Seiko, Citizen and popular Japanese watchmakers at the time.…

Cuff Love…

Watches Fit For Cuffs

Wearing one of today’s uber-thick wristwatches may pose a problem if you’re like most guys who wear long sleeve shirts with cuffs that button at the wrist. The average width of the cuff of a non-bespoke shirt is anywhere from 8 to 11 inches, even if you use the first button on the sleeve cuff, which will allow you a drop more room. You could opt to wear a dress shirt with French cuffs that do require cuff links to close the sleeves and may offer a bit more room on your wrist. However, French cuff shirts with cuff links have…

In The Thick Of Things…

thick-watches

The phrase “Slim Is In” certainly does not hold true in the world of horology these days. As both men’s and women’s wristwatches have grown in diameter and width in the past two decades, they also increased in thickness as well. Influential Swiss watchmakers Raymond Weil and Movado prided themselves in the 1990’s on producing some of the thinnest timepieces available with their ultra-thin Othello and Soleil collections, measuring less than 7mm in thickness, which is little more .27 of an inch in size. The Citizen Stiletto introduced in the early 2000’s probably holds the record for being the thinnest timepiece,…

Women’s Fashion Week Trends

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…

Citizens Of Time

Citizen  is one of the largest and most popular watchmakers in the world today. The company’s timekeeping origins date back to 1924 in Tokyo, Japan with the introduction of a pocket watch by the Shokosha Watch Research Institute. The pocket watch was given the name Citizen by the city’s mayor with hopes that a luxury item of this quality would become available to ordinary citizens and sold throughout the world by the Institute. The Tokyo mayor’s statement would later prove to become a prophecy as the Institute changed their name to Citizen and introduced many revolutionary timepieces in the past…
