Think Inside The Box…

Square and rectangular shaped wristwatches evoke a both a vintage and heirloom vibe. The classic linear silhouettes on these timepieces recall the splendor and romance of models worn on the wrists during  on the early and mid 20th century.

CARTIER-W2603156-SD
Cartier Tank Americaine

In fact, one of the very first wristwatches,  the Cartier Santos introduced in 1904, featured a 31mm wide square-shaped gold case on a leather strap. In 1917, Cartier followed the Santos with the Tank, an elongated, rectangular shaped timepiece modeled after Renault tanks used during World War I. Other watchmakers such as Movado and Bulova offered their own version of rectangular shaped models during the same era with the the Polyplan and Trojan timepieces respectively.

The Tank watch was so popular for Cartier at the time, that the brand registered and copyrighted the name in the early 1920’s.  In the 1940’s Swiss watchmaker Baume & Mercier offered a wider rectangular shaped gold men’s watch presented on a snakeskin strap, which would later serve as the inspiration for one of the brand’s most popular collections for men and women: The Hampton.

In the early 1970’s, TAG Heuer introduced a racing inspired chronograph The Monaco, which was worn by actor Steve McQueen in the film “Le Mans,” and brought the brand to widespread popularity throughout the globe and is still being produced 46-years later today.

Chanel is also known for introducing the Little Black Dress” in her early collections during the 1920’s as well.

Breitling Watches: The Sky’s The Limit!

Often a watchmaker’s emblem or logo says a lot about the brand. The crown emblem on Rolex timepieces symbolizes the brand’s long-standing association with royalty and heads of state. The Greek letter logo on Omega watches actually stands for the name Omega, a phrase also used to describe a popular jewelry link chain in bracelets and necklaces. The indented cabochon dot has long been used on Movado watch dials since the brand featured the design on its Museum watch in 1947.

Wings have long been associated with flying and aviation watches and no two watch brands with wing insignias easier to mind than Breitling and Longines. In the early 1920’s Longines developed navigational watches for the International Aeronautical Federation used by aviation pioneers of the era and soon incorporated wings into their brand emblem, which still remains today.BREITLING-A2336035-BA68

Breitling has long been the consummate pilot watchmaker for decades, since the brand first produced onboard chronographs used on aircraft cockpits in the 1930’s. During World War II, the British Royal Air Force equipped their fighter planes with Breitling timepieces for air strike missions.

Leather Strap Luxury…

Leather strap watches offer an air of prominence and time-honored distinction  to the wrist.

Rolex Oyster Milgauss

The Burberry trench coat remains a popular fashion mainstay throughout the globe today and has been worn by renowned world leaders, entertainers and athletes. The brand’s iconic check-pattern cashmere scarves have also been a fashion mainstay for many decades and are more popular today than they were in the 1900’s.

Notably very little has changed in both the styles of the Burberry trench coats or scarves, outside perhaps double and single breasted buttons and protective finishes on the coats along with slightly updated patterns on the scarves and coat linings.

In the world of horology, some wristwatches hold the distinction of being time-honored classics. Prestigious watchmakers Rolex, Bulova, Movado, Maurice Lacroix, Oris, Gucci, Lucien Piccard and Raymond Weil have been producing fine timepieces for decades and a number of their styles have remained time-keeping classics as well. These brands are highlighted this week in the Time Honored Classics event at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.

The Rolex Oyster Milgauss automatic men’s watch is as attractive today as it was when the first model debuted in 1956. The updated, generously sized model features the 40mm diameter Oyster case in premium grade, polished stainless steel, presented on the signature Oyster link bracelet in brushed and polished stainless steel.

The handsome black dial features luminous baton hands and hour markers. A green colored, scratch resistant sapphire crystal covers the dial. The premium Swiss-made automatic movement inside assures you of the utmost time-keeping accuracy. Additional features include official Chronometer certification from the COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Test Institute).

The Maurice Lacriox Les Classiques automatic wristwatch in 18K yellow gold captures the heirloom appeal of timepieces from yesteryear and is still a popular choice today. The handsome 37mm diameter case in polished 18K yellow gold is presented on a genuine black alligator strap with a matching 18K yellow gold buckle. The handsome black dial shines with polished gold-tone sword hands and baton hour markers. A window at the 6 o’clock hour reveals the automatic date calendar.

The semi-skeleton crystal case back lets you see the intricate Swiss-made movement inside. Additional features include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal above the dial and water-resistance to 30 meters or 100 feet.
