Watch Collection Essentials: Luxury Strap Watches

watch-collection-essentials

There’s a certain mystique about wearing a leather strap watch that creates an air of distinction on the wrist. Perhaps, it’s the time-honored elegance a crocodile, alligator, ostrich, lizard or supple calfskin leather strap provides. Or maybe it’s the timeless traditional appeal… after all the very first men’s wristwatches introduced in the early 1900’s only featured leather straps. More than a century later, strap wristwatches are still widely popular and are prominently featured today in collections from such renowned watchmakers as Corum, Omega, TAG Heuer, Breitling, Cartier, Invicta, Graham, Greco, Lucien Piccard, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Eterna and IWC. In addition to their…

Titanium Watch Collection Essentials

watch-collection-essentials

Titanium is by far one of the most popular metals featured in luxury watches today. The metal’s lightweight characteristics, durability and hypoallergenic qualities are factors to consider when selecting a timepiece, not to mention essential elements for your watch collection. Titanium is a relatively new metal that has been used in the craftsmanship of watches for less than twenty-five years and is more desired by many watch collectors than stainless steel and even 14K and 18K gold. In the late 1990’s, Swiss watchmakers TAG Heuer and Breitling were the first to introduce titanium models in their collections. Numerous watchmakers, including…

GMT Time Essentials

watch-collection-essentials

A GMT timepiece is another essential to consider having in your watch collection. It is a timepiece  with an independent hour hand that offers dual time-zone functionality and may be set to the Greenwich Meantime from which it is named. Greenwich Meantime is the highly-accurate solar mean time displayed at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich England. Since it was first instituted at the International Meridian Conference in 1884, the Observatory’s solar mean time has served as the global time standard for over 130 years. The Observatory’s GMT clock is highly-regarded throughout the globe for its time-keeping accuracy. It also is used as a reference…

Watch Collection Essentials: Precision Chronographs

watch-collection-essentials

A precision chronograph is another essential timepiece a serious watch collector should consider having in their watch collection. A chronograph features independent display and stop-watch functions on the dial, the latter usually represented on an individual sub-dial window. Preeminent Swiss watchmakers TAG Heuer and Breitling both have ties to the origins of chronograph timepieces. Edouard Heuer introduced the first independent stop-watch function on a pocket watch in 1882. In 1914, Heuer, whose brand would later be known as TAG Heuer introduced the first wristwatch chronograph, while two years later Heuer debuted the very first stopwatch accurate to 1/1000 of a…

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,…
