Automatic Time-Keepers

Daylight savings time took place this past weekend and if you’re like millions of other Americans, you had to manually update your timepieces, moving each one hour ahead. Of course, if you had an atomic watch you would not need to do this, since atomic watches and clocks synchronize with international Atomic clocks throughout the globe, providing precise time-keeping accuracy without having to manually reset your watch.

Having a very similar name, it’s very easy to confuse Atomic watches with Automatic watches. An automatic or self-winding wristwatch features a built-in mainspring mechanism inside that winds automatically from the natural motion of a user’s arm and provides sufficient energy to run the watch and avoid manual winding.PT6188-SS001-331

In 1770  Abraham Louis Perrelet invented the first automatic timepiece with a pocket watch model designed to operate when the watch wearer started walking, utilizing an oscillating weight that moved up and down.

Prior to Perrelet’s self-winding mechanism design, mechanical watches required manual winding almost daily to keep running smoothly.

Automatic timepieces are the focus of attention this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com, during their Automatic Time Event, featuring approximately 300 automatic timepieces from the most prestigious watchmakers in the world, including Maurice Lacroix, Rolex, Revue Thommen, Breitling, Invicta, Swiss Legend, Graham, Bedat & Co., Bulova Accutron II, Rotary, Marcel Drucker, Stuhrling Original, Haurex, Momo Design, Oris, Red Line, Luminox, Bell & Ross, Paul Picot and Baume & Mercier.

The Maurice Lacroix Pontos automatic chronograph is an excellent choice. This Swiss-made timepiece is meticulously crafted inside and out from the premium grade stainless steel case in a black ion-plate finish to the intricate mechanical movement inside.

The case is presented on a high-performance black rubber strap. An exhibition skeleton caseback lets you see the precision movement inside. A stationary bezel encircles the black dial with a tachymeter outer dial, three subdials and luminous hands.

Features include an automatic date calendar, small-second, 30-minute and 12-hour registers. An anti-reflective sapphire crystal above the dial provides clear, accurate viewing. Chronograph is 43mm in diameter, 16mm thick and is water-resistant to 50 meters or 166 feet.

A year later, the Concord Mariner debuted with an even thinner case, measuring just 1mm thick. Both the Delirium and Mariner were highly popular and sought-after. In 1986, Concord introduced the Saratoga collection for men and women, featuring elegant sporty lines in high-end metals, including 18K gold and surgical grade stainless steel.

Innovative Cartier Dimensions

Cartier is one of the most prominent and recognized jewelers in the world today. From breathtaking diamond jewelry of the highest quality and clarity to premium leather goods, the name Cartier represents the highest level of quality and prestige.

The Cartier brand also holds a unsurmountable position in the world of fine timepieces. Cartier is the first brand to introduce a wristwatch. In 1904, Louis Cartier designed a wristwatch as a favor to pilot Alberto Santos Dumont, which he could wear on his wrist when flying. Pocket watches at the time were too cumbersome to handle when up in the air.CARTIER-W3108555-PO

In 1933, Cartier was commissioned by Pasha of Marrakech to create a timepiece suitable for swimming. The first Pasha wristwatch featured a protective locking cap on the crown that prevented water from entering the case and mechanical mechanism inside. Several years later, Cartier released the Pasha to the world and this innovative timepiece set the stage for water-resistant watch technology for years to come.

The Cartier Pasha is still in production today in updated models with larger, more strapping dimensions and a variety of different styles. You’ll find an excellent selection of Cartier Pasha watches for both men and women at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.

The Cartier Pasha Automatic Chronograph for men is an excellent choice. This exemplary crafted men’s watch has a premium grade stainless steel case, highly polished to a mirror-bright patina.

Red Carpet Luxury…

The Academy Awards took place this past weekend and the film Birdman emerged as the big winner taking home four Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay along with Best Cinematography. The Grand Budapest Hotel also came away with four Oscars as well, yet all were  in the technical categories. Meanwhile Eddie Radmayne, Julianne Moore, J.K. Simmons and Patricia Arquette took the top acting honors.

While the winners were heralded throughout the globe, the major discourse regarding the Academy Awards has been the fashions seen on the nominees, presenters, entertainers and those attending the awards ceremony.

From Moore’s beaded white Chanel Haute Couture gown by Karl Lagerfeld accessorized with Chopard earrings to fellow nominee Rosamund Pike’s Givenchy Haute Couture red gown accompanied by a Lorraine Schwartz necklace, the fashions and accessories worn at the ceremony have been the main focus of media attention in the past few days.BREITLING-AB011012-C783

Fortunately for Lady Gaga, her Sound of Music tribute during the show outshined the red patent leather gloves she wore to accompany her white Alaia gown on the red carpet, preceding the ceremony.

Actor John Travolta did not fare as well wearing an oversized gold neck chain instead of a traditional bow tie with his navy tuxedo.

At least the Breitling Chronomat Travolta wore at the Oscars earned him some notes of admiration. Ditto, the Cartier Pasha watch seen on presenter Jared Leto, which was received more favorably than the blue Givenchy tuxedo and white lace-up shoe ensemble he wore.

From distinguished automatic timepieces to dazzling women’s dress watches, you’ll find many of the prestigious timepieces seen on wrists of Academy Award presenters, nominees and winners at leading luxury retailer TheWatchery.com during their Red Carpet Luxury event.
