Affordable Elegance…

Numerous luxury car owners share a secret they may not want to divulge : their highly covetable Porsche, Ferrari or Jaguar may be a showroom or pre-owned model. Both the pre-owned and showroom luxury car markets offer buyers more affordable options on highly desired models.

Showroom models in particular may not have the mileage, along with the wear and tear that pre-owned models may have, but they do experience some wear with customers checking the vehicles out, not to mention their exposure to everyday lighting in the showrooms. Although the savings on showroom models are considerably less than pre-owned, they are still exceptional values.

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.

Watches That Make The Man…

LONGINES-L56555717
Longines Dolce Vita

The adage “The Clothes Make The Man,” is long attributed to playwright William Shakespeare from his 16th Century play Hamlet and is used as a moment of comic relief by the character Polonius in the play. The phrase is also attributed to author Mark Twain, who during the 19th Century used the term as a forward to the remainder of the phrase “Naked people have little or no influence on society.”

Numerous fashion aficionados today may differ to agree that it’s the “It’s The Shoes That Make The Man,” while others would concur “That It Is The Watch That Makes The Man.” The latter holds some credo with the Suitable Attire For The Perfect Gentleman event taking place this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.
