It seems these days, that in order to get truly noticed in this crowded watch market, the watch companies have taken the complication pact to “boldly go where no one has gone before…”

Feature articles about watches in our daily lives, watches in society, watch love, watch hate, in short – there’s a great big world of watches out there and we talk about it.
I have been writing about watches for just a little over six years, and while that may not seem all that long to some of the feild’s more seasoned writers, that is the amount of time it required before the necessary connections and relationships were in place for me to be able to attend BaselWorld.

Be it space or spaceship, the watches below are some of the coolest modern watches which honor or make actual use of elements far from the Earth. Imaginative watchmakers use meteorite dials or design their cases and movements to look like spaceships. We love this stuff and as traditional as watchmaking is, these timepieces are directly inspired by science and science fiction…
Timezone.com Founder Richard Paige laments high watch prices and questions the logic of it all.

With the 2013 movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby book being released shortly, we wanted to take a look at some of the best wrist watches from the roaring 20s. The 1920s, in a sense, was the first real decade of the wrist watch. It was when both men and women started to adapt wrist watches over pocket watches. Some of the best brands that make watches today were around back then…
The good news is that new watches in 2013 are better than ever, and take it from people who’ve seen the watches. Top 10 lists are great, but a few we’ve seen are written by people who haven’t even seen the products…

How we see time influences how we communicate and perceive time. Time for some people is waiting for hands on a dial to move into position, while for others it is carefully watching seconds precisely count away on a digital dial.

It was not until I was a bit older did I realize those words had meaning not related to telling the time.
If you look at many of the most popular watch brands, you’ll notice that their collections usually contain a few (or many) classics whose names have been around for years. Brands like Rolex don’t really release new models, but rather continue to improve on their core collection over time.
