The Largest Watch In The World?

watchesThe Watchery’s blowout spring clearance savings on luxury watches continues today, with new discounts on Swiss Legend, Movado, and Seiko watches for both men and women. We have some big power watches at over 70% off and quite diminutive prices. But if you are looking for the biggest watch statement in the world, there is a fixture that may have you beat regardless of what you are willing to spend.

Believe it or not, we are talking about Stonehenge. While we have no written records of Stonehenge or clear evidence of its intended use, its alignments show its purposes apparently included the determination of seasonal or celestial events, such as lunar eclipses, solstices and so on, making it a large, authoritative timepiece for the ancient peoples who utilized the site. Archaeologists believe it was built anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC. Radiocarbon dating in 2008 suggested that the first stones were raised between 2400 and 2200 BC, while another theory suggests that stones may have been raised at the site as early as 3000 BC.

We do not have anything quite so old, but this women’s Girard-Perreguax Vintage 1945 watch with mechanical hand wind movement, a silver dial and 18k rose gold case and genuine leather strap has a timeless quality all on its own.

Minimalism And Maximum Savings

watchesGood news, everyone! We have ramped up the discounts on our featured and clearance watches to new highs as part of our sensational spring clearance season. Save thousands on high end luxury watches like this Movado men’s sapphire watch with black dial, Swiss quartz movement, and black rubber strap. Elegant and clean, with clear, bold lines, this watch is an excellent example of minimalist design.

Minimalism describes movements in various forms of art and design, especially visual art and music, where the work is set out to expose the essence or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features or concepts. Minimalism is any design or style in which the simplest and fewest elements are used to create the maximum effect. The subject is reduced to its necessary elements, with ideas that could be expressed by using basic elements such as lines and planes organized in very particular manners. Minimalist design has been highly influenced by Japanese traditional design and architecture. Designed to always tell time with precision and elegance, this Movado timepiece adheres well to that and would be a fashionable addition to any men’s wardrobe.

Impeccable Meccaniche Veloci Watches

watchesIt’s good to be the king of watches. The chronograph was invented, was to please King Louis XVIII of France in 1821. The King greatly enjoyed watching horse races, but wanted to know exactly how long each race lasted, so an eminent watchmaker, Nicolas Rieussec, was hired to invent a contraption that would do the job. He created the first ever commercialized chronograph, a stopwatch combined with a display watch. Chronographs, adopted for strategic and scientific uses over time, have since found their way into the world of luxury watches, and we here at The Watchery certainly have many fine examples of chronographs among our brand name watches.

Here is a special one we have not yet covered on the blog. Meccaniche Veloci is an Italian creative time lab that has managed to successfully combine motor engineering with the highest quality watch craftsmanship since 2006. Funneling all of the adrenaline of high speed sports into the elegance of wristwatches, that stand out for their state of the art design, as well as their strong sports and technological imprinting. This men’s Cordura chronograph with automatic movement, military green dial, black IP case, and green camouflage strap is one of our featured sales today, discounted by a full 75%!

Great Discounts On Lucian Piccard Watches

watchesHappy vernal equinox, everyone! On the day of the equinox, the center of the Sun spends a roughly equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on the Earth, so night and day are about the same length. In reality, though, the day is longer than the night at an equinox. When Julius Caesar established his calendar in 45 BC he set March 25 as the spring equinox. Since a Julian year (365.25 days) is slightly longer than an actual year the calendar drifted with respect to the equinox, such that the equinox was occurring on about 21 March in AD 300 and by AD 1500 it had reached 11 March. It was this drift that induced Pope Gregory XIII to create a modern Gregorian calendar we still use today.

If you do not want time to drift so dramatically on or off the equinox, the discounted luxury watches at The Watchery will make sure you are always in step. We have featured discounts right now on Lucian Piccard men’s watches like this cool, even-keeled and stylish LP Breithorn with silver dial, Swiss-made quartz movement, and genuine black leather strap. It is a whopping 83% off the list price! Come visit us online to see all our incredible feature and clearance sales at TheWatchery.com today!

Quartz Vs. Automatic

watchesWe have not talked about the different ‘movements’ of watches, literally the pieces that make them ‘tick.’ Electronic movements are sparks by reactions from a quartz crystal, while mechanic movements govern both ‘automatic’ and ‘manual’ wind watches. Quartz is the most accurate movement, you do have to change a battery. However, a well engineered automatic can be just as accurate in all practical terms, and they require far more engineering and craftsmanship. The right choice depends on your lifestyle and aesthetics.

Quartz watches are not only less expensive, but also better suited to a highly active lifestyle. For evening wear or the executive boardroom, though, a solid mechanical watch, whether it’s manual-wind or automatic, is the clear choice to turn heads. A quartz dress watch might be a good compromise for those on a budget, but the good news is that we have great discounts on all kinds of movements.

All of our brand name watches are fine, but today we are featuring Ebel. 100% Swiss made, each Ebel watch is the product of a keen eye, a skilled hand, and an unwavering quest for perfection. The movement of an Ebel timepiece is a result of many years of research and development along with each watchmaker’s devotion to finding the technological optimal solution. Here is a fine example: this Tarawa mens’ stainless steel black dial with automatic movement and  a genuine black leather alligator strap. Check out our entire collection of automatic and quartz movements today at TheWatchery.com!

Great Deals on Baume & Mercier Watches

watchesWelcome to the Ides of March, friends, Romans, countrymen! The Romans did not number days of a month sequentially. Instead, they counted back from three fixed points of the month: the Nones (5th or 7th, depending on the length of the month), the Ides (13th or 15th), and the Kalends (1st) of the following month. In modern times, of course, the Ides of March is best known as the date on which Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BCE. Caesar was stabbed to death at a meeting of the senate. As many as 60 conspirators, led by Brutus and Cassius, were involved. According to Plutarch, a seer had warned that harm would come to Caesar no later than the Ides of March. On his way to the Theatre of Pompey, where he would be assassinated, Caesar passed the seer and joked, “The ides of March have come,” meaning to say that the prophecy had not been fulfilled, to which the seer replied “Aye, Caesar; but not gone.”

Another thing which have come but not yet gone are the fantastic deals available on luxury watches, like this Baume & Mercier Men’s Classima Executive watch with silver dial and dark brown leather strap. Find all our usual conspirators of brand name watches right now at TheWatchery.com!

Terrific Tag Heuer Watches On Sale!

watchesTAG Heuer traces its roots to the 1860 foundation of Uhrenmanufaktur Heuer AG by Edouard Heuer in St-Imier, Switzerland; in German it means literally “Day This Year.” The designer and manufacturer has a much broader reputation than just watches, though.

From 1911, Heuer manufactured timepieces to be mounted on the dashboards of automobiles, aircraft and boats. These clocks and timers included a variety of models, designed to address specific needs of racers and rallyists.

In 1958, Heuer introduced a new line of dashboard timepieces, which included the Master Time (8-day clock), the Monte Carlo (12-hour stopwatch), the Super Autavia (full chronograph), Sebring (60-minute, split-second timer) and Auto-Rallye (60-minute stopwatch). Heuer continued to manufacture these dashboard timepieces into the 1980s, at which time they were discontinued. Heuer also introduced timing devices for ski and motor racing events, including Formula One.

TAG Heuer has been the official timekeeper of the three Summer Olympic Games of the 1920s, the Skiing World Championships, the Formula One World Championships and has developed a watch for the McLaren F1 team. The brand has also had a long list of sports and Hollywood ambassadors.

One of the Watchery’s featured luxury watches on sale right now, for 35% off, is a TAG Men’s Carrera chronograph with automatic movement, sleek black dial and black genuine leather strap. Check out our entire collection at TheWatchery.com!

Singular Gevril Watches Featured Now

watchesThe Watchery’s featured watches are spotlighted because of their particularly fine discounts, but one of our featured brand name watches is a real rarity all on its own: the Gevril ‘Avenue of the Americas’ watch, with a modern elegance to match one of the busiest streets in Manhattan.

The avenue’s official name was changed to Avenue of the Americas in 1945 by the City Council, at the behest of Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, who signed the bill into law on October 2, 1945. The intent was to honor the nations of the Organization of American States. It was felt at the time that the name would provide greater grandeur to a shabby street, and to promote trade with the Western Hemisphere. After the name change, round signs were attached to streetlights on the avenue, showing the national seals of all the nations in the OAS.

Gevril, on the other hand, actually began as a maker of fine pocket watches. There is one on display from the year 1781 in the Museum Geneve. The dial texturing features a technique carried forward within the dials of the very sublime and current “Avenue of Americas” Collection. Collectively matching anyone’s style, this gorgeous Gevril Avenue of the Americas men’s watch with black textured dial and black leather strap, will elegantly go with any scene.
