Lucien Piccard – Keeping Time with Timeless Style

I’ll make no apology here.  I’m a huge Lucien Piccard fan.  #SorryNotSorry. And I love the direction the brand is taking. The new watches just fit me. I take my martinis with top shelf vodka, and one well educated rock. I wear a sport coat sometimes. Dress shoes. And I wear a Lucien Piccard almost every single day. The history of Lucien Piccard is compelling, and that speaks to me as well. In particular, I love the fact that Ava Gardner gifted a custom Lucien Piccard watch to Frank Sinatra back in the 1960’s.  It was a 17-jewel, 14k gold…

The Real World of Watches – Who We Are

World of Watches - Mens Watches

As we rapidly approach the busy holiday shopping season, I wanted to take a few moments and talk about us, and more so, to talk with you about who we are, where we’re going and what that means for you. Let’s start out though with a bit about who we aren’t so that you can shop with us confidently. Recently, a few websites have popped up selling watches at unbelievable prices. Some of them have gone so far as to copy our content and watch selection, and even use our Miramar, FL mailing address as their own. They simply aren’t…

Chat Time – Scott Rosen Interview, Former Hublot President

Doron Basha sits down and discusses the watch industry with Scott Rosen, former Hublot Watches president. Mr. Rosen discusses the evolution of the Hublot Big Bang, which came about from an attempt to partner with Ferrari.  While back then Panerai won the bid, Hublot went on to modify the design for their own use, and the Big Bang Collection was born. The conversation shifts to the merits of end-to-end in-house watch manufacturing, and concludes with how quartz movements impacted global and Swiss watchmakers. Thanks for joining us, Mr. Rosen!

Rebuilding a TAG Heuer 1000 Submariner Diver

Sometimes even a blind squirrel finds a nut. I was wandering around an antiques dealer in Buffalo, NY last summer and happened upon TAG Heuer 1000 Submariner Diver watch for $25. So, that happened. I sat on it for a while, but once I moved down to Miami I decided I was going to find out if we could make it run.  I had the repairs team here pry it open and have a look. Not surprisingly, the gasket was shot, since the watch is somewhere around thirty years old. So we replaced that. TAG makes a great watch though,…

3 Great Watches for 3 Great Scotches

Scotch and Watch Pairings

When it comes to spirits, single malt scotch is my favorite. Sure, I turn to red wine most Friday nights, but when I really want to relax and enjoy a drink, it’s scotch. Scotch has a “feeling.” When I lived in Western New York, cold winter nights needed something to warm your heart and spirit.  Believe me, February and March turned into long, long months waiting for the weather to break. So sitting in a leather chair with a good book and a good scotch became a habit. I’d like to think it was in front of a roaring fire…

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…
