Luxury goods companies like Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co. sell watches in addition to their other goods. These watches are often highly limited and of good quality these days (the story was different 20-25 years ago). Often times, these watches are given oversight as not coming from a traditional watch company, but they deserve […]

There are far more watches costing $100,000 than you’d guess; and many that exceed that price. If you are going to spend that type of money on a watch, it might as well have a unique novelty, considering you aren’t going to wear it very often. Here we have an interesting toy for the uber-wealthy, […]
Here is something you don’t see everyday. A rare Tiffany & Co. watch that I just can’t seem to figure out. I learned of this watch as it is being offered on eBay right now with no end date until someone purchases it. The seller claims that it is a Tiffany & Co. watch built […]
There are certain high-end Swiss watches that I’ve always admired for their style and function, among them is the Ulysse Nardin GMT ± Perpetual. It’s a travel watch in the tradition of the Rolex GMT Master, but with a neat twist: It has two buttons that increment or decrement the local time. When you travel, […]
The face of a watch, like a person, often tells you quite a bit about what they are. Sometimes they’re subtle and restrained, and sometimes their place in the world is writ large for all to see. The Casio Pathfinder, model number PAW1500T-7V is one of those “this is who I am, got a problem […]
There is a new diving watch brand in town. It is not particularly unique or exciting to me, and it looks like the bastard love child of Ocean7 and NauticFish. “Style” copying in the watch world is pretty prevalent as the look of a watch is almost impossible to copyright. The only practical things you […]
Tragedy ensues in many communities as watch maker and jeweler Jacob & Co. founder Jacob Arabov will be sent to prison for 30 months. The crime was essentially laundering drug money and lying to law enforcement while providing false documents. Arabov’s organized crime client “The Black Mafia Family” (this is what they are called and […]
Brazilian Artist Romero Britto has popularity in many art circles because his work combines styles cherished by many. Though he has his own distinct look, it is all heavily influenced by Picasso cubism, Roy Lichtenstein pop art, Japanese pop art, and a “world” urban happy feel. I’d say that most of his art tends to […]
It is no secret that precious jewels have always featured in men’s high-end, luxury watches. Yet it seems that these days more and more of these jewels are finding their way onto dials, bezels and bands, as opposed to only being incorporated in the complicated movements that power these incredible timepieces. One brand that has […]
Please don’t make me choose one of the two. Both are highly desirable to me. Are you really going to make them fight for my affection? I wonder who would win. Here you have two Valjoux 7750 automatic movement based watches from American and Germany, though the movements are Swiss. The Kobold Phantom is the […]
I am convinced that Seiko loves their dive watches most of all. Not only do their dive watches get to sample each fragment of new technology that they release, but dive styled watches fall at the bottom and top of Seiko’s watch line from a price perspective. One result is a dizzying array of diving […]
“In my tireless search for unique, robust, and beautiful watches, it was inevitable that I would someday be wearing a Sinn. I chose the 856 UTC as my first Sinn because it represents a very nice balance between functionality and design. Before I get into the specifics of the 856, I want to provide a […]
Like many celebrities Sylvester Stallone is a big watch lover. Unlike others he is attributed with making a brand popular in Hollywood (Panerai), and working closely with watch companies. Accordingly, Panerai has even released models with the “Slytech” name in honor of Stallone for his love and participation with the company. Stallone love’s Panerai so […]
When did Citizen watches start to become the target of fakes? Its true. I first learned that Watches-brand.com was selling fake Citizen Campanola watches, such as the Grand Complication. This sort of makes sense as the watches are all above $2000 and feature quartz movements. But then I learned that they didn’t stop there. They […]
[ad#image-med-rect] Few people have the luxury of either having their own in-house design team or being able to do it themselves. In light of this issue, companies like Virtual Ideas pop up to fill the needs of those people who need professional design but cannot do it themselves. Virtual Ideas is comprised of a design […]
This is probably the first time I have ever seen ones of these watches for sale. There are perhaps a few thousand of them in the world for the entire Cora series. This diamond studded limited edition is one of only300 on the planet. I would classify the Temption Cora as a woman’s watch that […]
