Award-Worthy Watches…

Award Winning Watches

The Academy Awards was last night and let’s face it most people watch the show to see what the stars are wearing, not to mention some of the outrageous acceptance speeches and of course the host’s monologues and between awards badinage. “Mad Max: Fury Road”, was the big winner of the evening with six awards in the technical categories… and “Spotlight” was named Best Picture. But let’s get real: without Googling last year’s winners most of us probably don’t remember that “Birdman” took the top honors last year, taking home the Best Picture prize. The acting awards are another story and…

Our Very Good Years – Men’s Watches As We Age

Watches As We Age

Call me old.  Especially around 9 PM at night when I really feel old.  Last Friday night, I spent a lot of time with the brooding side of Frank Sinatra on Youtube, and of course “A Very Good Year” came on.  That song is iconic for both the Chairman of the Board and for the whole Rat Pack lifestyle.  It expresses the good life, and how it eventually gets compartmentalized as we age in a series of moments. We start to think in generalizations about periods of our life, rather than looking on the whole.  Since I work around watches…

Independence Day, Twister and Mission Impossible were the popular films in movie theaters and Macarena was the top song on the radio. Online shopping was new and revolutionary at the time and many Americans still did not even have personal computers in their homes and relied on computers at work for online surfing and shopping. 1996 marks the year of the origin of WorldofWatches.com, a revolutionary site in both the worlds of retail and timepieces. Numerous retailers at the time barely had an online presence, not to…

Affordable Luxury For Dad

For decades luxury automakers along the lines of Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, Ferrari, BMW, Lexus, Lincoln Continental, Porsche and Audi have offered pre-owned automobiles and sport cars to consumers in addition to their newly released models. Most of these pre-owned automobiles are late-model, high-quality vehicles with little or no mileage and wear and tear that have gone through a comprehensive inspection and thorough restoration to provide a “just-like-new” operation and look both inside and out. What’s more they are considerably more affordable than new models. Prestigious high-end wristwatches are very much like these well-crafted, precision engineered vehicles in style, performance and…
