Diamond Watches Are A Girl’s Best Friends…

The popular phrase diamonds are a girl’s best friend dates back to the song of the same name written for the 1949 Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes and was later presented and immortalized in the 1953 film version of the show  by Marilyn Monroe. Monroe sang of her desire for sparkling square and pear-shaped diamonds along with diamond baguettes from a man who “gives expensive gifts of jewels” from the likes of Tiffany, Cartier, Black Starr and Harry Winston in the legendary song. This summer, diamonds are once again a girl’s best friend with watchmaker Swiss Legend’s five new watch collections…

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…

Here’s Proof That Two is Better Than One…

Pantone Colors of the Year

The people at Pantone went absolutely WILD and picked not one, but TWO colors of the year for 2016. Okay so technically it’s a blending of two shades, a mashup, if you will–Rose Quartz and Serenity. If you’re like me, when someone tells you these are the colors of the year, it means nothing. No colors come to mind. But once you see them, you’ll get it. It’s basically baby pink and sky blue. But according to Pantone’s website, it’s this: Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and…

Skeleton Watches – The Traditional Watch Lover’s Watch

Skeleton Watches

When you look at watch sales last year, it might be easy to think that Apple Watch was the hero: many estimates have Apple selling 13 million units in 2015.  The impact on the watch industry was substantial and we all watched in amazement as it unfolded before us. It got me to thinking as we looked back on both last year’s results and on our World of Watches 20 year history, that in literature there tends to be a lot of anti-heroes too.  In an age where technology evolves faster and faster, and people line up at retailers to get…
