The Formula For High-Performance Watches

watchesFormula One, also known as Formula 1 or F1 and referred to officially as the FIA Formula One World Championship is the highest class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). The “formula” refers to a set of rules with which all participants’ cars must comply. Formula One cars are the fastest multi-turn circuit-racing cars in the world, owing to very high cornering speeds achieved through the generation of large amounts of aerodynamic downforce. Formula One cars can race at speeds of up to 220 mph, and are capable of lateral acceleration in excess of 5 g in corners.

Tag Heuer, too, is one of the most famous brands and exacting producers of luxury watches in the world. Heuers have historically been popular watches among automobile racers, both professionals and amateurs. Heuer was a leading producer of stopwatches and timing equipment, based on the volume of its sales, so it was only natural that racers, their crews and event sponsors began to wear Heuer’s chronographs and watches. Now you too can get a piece of the action with this Tag Heuer men’s Formula One Stainless Steel chronograph with black dial and stainless steel case, at a great discount from TheWatchery.com!

A Rough Guide to Watch-buying

women's watchesDespite the seriously deep discounts we offer on all of our brand name watches, we acknowledge that purchasing luxury watches is almost invariably a matter of investment. We understand that few have money to simply throw around on thoughtless purchases, so we’ve decided to offer a brief guide to finding the right watch for you when shopping:

Always consider price: Bear your budget in mind. There are watches available for pocket money, but then certain timepieces run into the millions. Make sure you know you’re getting value for money before you commit to purchase.

Do brand research: Learn more about watch manufacturers before making your decision. There is a wealth of information available online which can aid in informing you of particular brands’ strengths or weaknesses.

Size it right: Generally, if you are of a larger stature, it’s recommended you opt for watches with large faces. Those of a smaller stature will want to opt for watch faces a little smaller to avoid bad fits.

Weighing up the benefits of water-resistance: Those who plan on wearing their watches during workouts or rainstorms will want to opt for water-resistant timepieces.

Style of strap: Leather straps look luxurious but wear easier than, for example, stainless steel. Choose a strap that’s right for you and your lifestyle.

Stunning Luxury Watches from Heritage Brands

women's watchesIn the past few years, there has been a lot of talk about so-called ‘heritage brands’ within the luxury sector. These are brands which are decades, if not centuries, old, with years of experience in providing customers with quality products.

The BU1207-SD from Burberry fuses this brand’s tradition of quality craftsmanship with its contemporary design.

Brilliant Burberry Watches

watchesThis Burberry women’s watch with sleek black dial, a genuine black leather strap, and reliable automatic movement is simple and elegant, understated and yet sure to stand out.

Burberry is pretty famous, and not just for their brand name watches. As early as 1880, Burberry introduced in his brand the gabardine, a hardwearing, water-resistant yet breathable fabric, in which the yarn is waterproofed before weaving. They became the outfitters for Roald Amundsen, the first man to reach the South Pole, and Ernest Shackleton, who led a 1914 expedition to cross Antarctica. During the 1970s, the brand became popular with the British casual cult, leading to its being associated with members of football firms by the 1990s and ‘chav’s the following decade.

Burberry was the original name, but then the company soon switched to using the name Burberrys, after many customers from around the world began calling it Burberrys of London. In 1999, Burberry’s changed their marketing name to Burberry. Most of their items changed too, but many accessory items still had the Burberry’s name.

With a touch of glamour and a slender frame, adding this stylish Burberry to your collection will compliment any outfit and make a fashion statement all on its own. Check out all our stylish women’s watches online now today at TheWatchery.com!
