For 2013, the aBlogtoWatch watch gift guide will take the form of an editor’s and contributor’s wish list. Some of the editorial team has gone ahead and chosen a few of the timepieces from last year that are really high on their list. These are mostly newer watches, but ones that should be available for purchase now. So for this holiday season you’ll get a good idea of what we’ve personally wanted, and we didn’t include crazy stuff that no one can get, even if they could afford it.

Welcome to “My First Grail Watch,” a new interview series on aBlogtoWatch that explores the first major timepiece lusted after by important people in the watch industry. Today, we’re hearing from Jerome Mage, co-founder and Creative Director for MARCH LA.B.
Every year watch lovers and collectors in the Midwest look forward to the Watch Fair at Wixon Jewelers in Minneapolis, MN. The event brings together some of the top Swiss watch brands under one roof to offer special pricing and display an extended selection of these highly revered collections…
Major auctioneer Christie’s is currently running their first ever “online-only auction,” “The Essential Watch Collection” These days, we’re all accustomed to researching watches online, and then, very likely also buying them online. Major auctioneers have for a long time been trying to get a piece of the “eBay pie,” and the plan is to approach the sale of vintage watches online by offering a curated, safe environment where watches are vetted by professionals and available through a trusted source…
For the start of August, we spend time with one of the hottest new releases at Baselworld, the Tudor Heritage Chrono Blue. We also find out Jess Hess’ “Grail Watch”; learn about brands that make their own metal; and attempt to understand why watches cost what they do.
The aBlogtoWatch team has made dressing up that much easier (and costlier) with our list of the top 10 elegant dress watches. In life, we usually avoid complications, in a dress watch as well, the less the better, a simple uncluttered dial is one of the timeless qualities that a dress watch should fulfill. The focus should ideally be on the essence of a watch…
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…
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.
Tourbillons have come a long way during the past 200+ years of their existence. That time has proven sufficient to provide major ups and downs – and more than one full life cycle for this fairy invention.
We recently featured an exclusive hands-on look at the new for 2013 Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Ultra-Thin Perpetual calendar watch. We were excited both by the price and aesthetics of that sexy and slim perpetual calendar with its classic design. That watch represented one of the three pillars which we consider to be the strengths of Jaeger-LeCoultre as a brand.
At an event this evening in Las Vegas, Jaeger-LeCoultre launched their brand new Master Ultra Thin Perpetual, a svelte addition to the Master line of dress watches that boasts a full perpetual calendar in a case family that we all know and love…
We talk turkey about SIHH 2013, some of the watches, a lot of the people. And what it is like as a watch blogger to be there. Oh, and more…
At SIHH 2013 the most prestigious of the actually many prestigious new Jaeger-LeCoultre watches was a new version of the famous Gyrotourbillon.
We get asked for advice on buying watches all year long but we can’t answer everyone. If you still aren’t sure what watches should be on your shopping list this holiday season, let’s see what the aBlogtoWatch writing team has to say.
We battle it out over the coolness or lameness of the Morgenwerk Satellite Precision watches. We then talk about the final versions of the HYT H1 hydromechanical watch, as well as the awesome new Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX 7 Chronograph. Then we try to understand and sum up the new watch brand by, and featuring his royal undeadness, Karl Lagerfeld.
Jaeger-LeCoultre announces the seventh version of their Aston Martin automobile collaboration watches with the AMVOX 7 Chronograph. It marks eight years of working together with the auto maker on a watch which began with the kitschy idea of having a function that allows you to lock and unlock your Aston Martin car with a luxury watch.
