Police Watches Offer Style Squared

brand name watchesHere at The Watchery, we’re still continuing to change the connotations of tax day, offering extensive discounts of up to 90% on some of our most stylish brand name watches!

One of the most distinctive men’s watches currently retailing is this Hydra watch from esteemed Italian accessories brand, Police. Owing its name to the serpent-like chthonic water creature of Greek mythology, Police’s Hydra boasts two clock faces; the left face features gunmetal indices, while the right has black indices and Arabic numerals.

Despite its difference, this watch is easily paired with both casual and formal attire. Wear with a white button-down shirt and slim tie and well-cut suit for a sharp business-appropriate look, or opt for a long-sleeved tee or v-neck in inky black for an equally striking look that’s less constrictive.

Founded in Italy in 1983, Police initially specialized in designing sunglasses. In 1997, the brand expanded into cosmetics, launching their first fragrance collection. 2003 marked the debut for Police watches, while 2008 saw the unveiling of the brand’s first full apparel line. Celebrities who have promoted the brand in the past have included Bruce Willis, George Clooney, David Beckham and Antonio Banderas.

Watch Terminology 101: Part 2

women's watchesContinuing on from our first installment which went some way in demystifying the language involved in watch-shopping, we thought we’d add a few more terms to our guide to watch terminology. Read on, and appear every inch the watch expert on your next shopping trip:

Bezel: This term is used to refer to that part of the watch to which gemstones are attached. For example, in the Glam Rock women’s watch to the right, the bezel is that circular part surrounding the watch face which features 48 white diamonds. Rotating bezels are also available; these are bezels which can be turned and which perform different timekeeping and mathematical functions.

Bracelet: This seem self-explanatory, but the term ‘bracelet’, in horology, is used to refer specifically to a metal watch band constructed of elements which resemble links.

Chronograph: A chronograph is a complicated watch which has separate functions and dials, usually for timing. Many of the luxury watches we stock here at The Watchery are chronographs. The first chronograph watches were designed for pilots and aviators in order to make complicated calculations.

Crown: A round metal cap which is used to wind and set a watch’s time and calendar.

Isochronism: This means the watch in question runs at the same rate whether the watch is fully wound, or only partially wound.

Watch Terminology 101

men's watchesWhen it comes to buying watches, the product terminology involved in the process is enough to leave any astute brain frazzled. From quartz to bezels, and cases to chronograph, sometimes the theoretically simple task of buying a luxury watches becomes a time-consuming and complex procedure that demands you attempt to decipher a vast lexicon of unfamiliar terms.

That’s why we’ve decided to compile some of the more unusual timepiece-related terms, as well as their definitions:

Complication: This refers to any function of a watch beyond the simple process of timekeeping. Complication could be used to refer to features such as a stopwatch, a lunar calendar, or an alarm.

Movement: This is used to describe all of the cogs, wheels, and bits and pieces located inside the watch, which enable its timekeeping.

Quartz: This refers to a type of movement powered by a battery and regulated by the oscillations of a quartz crystal. Quartz movement is generally considered to be the most accurate type of movement.

Self-winding: Also known as ‘automatic’, a self-winding watch is a type of mechanical watch containing a rotor on a pivot, that is wound by the day-to-day movements of the wearer’s wrist.

Women’s Watches Inspired by Masculine Style

women's watchesCross-pollination in men’s and women’s fashion is not so much a trend, as a fixture. Beginning with the inimitable Marlene Dietrich’s tuxedo-ed performance in Morocco (1930), androgyny grew from an outrageous statement in the interwar years to a casual style in the 1990s with the popularization of the ‘boyfriend’ jean. Along the way, designers such as Yves Saint Laurent went to great lengths to ensure women wearing masculine styles were interpreted as undeniably sexy, rather than inappropriate.

Now, masculine styles (oversized blazers, baggy jeans, lanky tanktops) are regularly advocated by major fashion magazines and personages, and certain accessories offer the opportunity to start flaunting this style.

Here the at the home of luxury watches, we offer an array of androgynous women’s watches styles that are irresistibly enticing. Take a look at the Swiss Legend 10051-BKBGR, an arresting timepiece combining the ‘masculine’ (inky black linked ceramic strap, black ceramic case and black mother of pearl dial) with the resolutely feminine (gold tone hands, luminous indices and Karamica diamond-encrusted bezel)

Best of all, this little piece of luxury won’t break the bank, with the style now currently reduced from $399.99 to $269.99, as part of our up to 90% off sale on diamond watches! This product also ships same business day if ordered before 2pm EST.

Diamonds At Best Friend Prices

watchesThe Watchery continues to offer huge discounts on dress and luxury watches. For those of you who have or have loved ones with April birthdays, now might be the perfect time to take advantage of our special discounts on diamond watches. April, of course, is lucky enough to have diamond as its birthstone. How that came about is pretty neat.

The first century Jewish historian Josephus proclaimed a connection between the twelve stones in Aaron’s breastplate, the twelve months of the year, and the twelve signs of the zodiac. In the eighth and ninth century religious tracts were written associating a particular stone with an apostle, as Revelation stated their name would be inscribed on the Foundation Stones, and his virtue. Practice became to keep twelve stones and wear one a month. In 1912, in an effort to standardize birthstones, the (American) National Association of Jewelers met in Kansas and officially adopted a list.

Crafted with elegance and a bold design, this a solar-powered Citizen Regent chronograph is equipped with a solar cell in the watch dial that converts light energy into electrical energy to power the watch. Its white diamond and mother of pearl dial and rose gold tone stainless steel strap with add grace and sophistication to any outfit. Check out all our diamond watches today at TheWatchery.com!
