Hublot Watches Given the Jay-Z Seal

men's watchesAs the build-up to superstar rapper Jay-Z’s latest album, Magna Carta, reaches incredible heights TheWatchery would like to take a moment to show some appreciation for Hip Hop’s Best-Dressed Wrist. Sean Carter is no stranger to luxury watches with a collection ranging from Rolex to Audemars Piguet to Richard Mille and more. We could talk all day about his entire collection but to save some time we’ll just focus on one outstanding model that will give its wearer the feeling that they can rock a stadium.

Featured in the music video for the overwhelmingly popular single “Otis” found on the Watch the Throne album, the Hublot Big Bang Automatic Chronograph watch is a stunner. If you listen to the track, you’ll notice Jay-Z is such a fan he included the watch in his lyrics! With hip hop’s passion for fashion and excess, it makes perfect sense for the genre’s biggest star to admire the Swiss watchmakers who are also responsible for the $5 million watch, the world’s most expensive model.

While all their watches will take a substantial bank roll to purchase, at TheWatchery we make getting your hands on a genuine Hublot easier than most with discounts of 30% and more! Stop by for the Hublot Big Bang and other designer watches!

TAG Heuer and Hettich Jewellers have been doing business for several generations and they have announced how pleased they are to welcome the man who will usher in the future of precision in wristwatches. These designer watches are just as attractive to the physics nerds as the fashion elite.

Hollywood Watches: Expendables 2

Panerai Mens Watch ExpendablesThe 2010 Hollywood action-extravaganza The Expendables was released to great acclaim and gave fans of classic action films exactly what they were missing. The 2012 sequel made everything bigger, from the explosions to the muscles to the cheese-factor of non-stop one-liners. One thing that caught our eye at The Watchery is that their style also blew up! Sly Stallone can be seen wearing one of our favorite luxury watches from Panerai.

Dating back to 1860 in the gorgeous city of Florence, it makes sense that the ‘Italian Stallion’ would choose an elegant design from his Motherland, and one that has a macho, wartime history. It also makes sense, however, because this is not Stallone’s first encounter with the watch-maker. In 1995 he bought a Luminor in Rome for his film Daylight and has remained a stalwart customer since.

men's watchesOur finest Panerai on offer, this Men’s Radiomir with a genuine alligator strap is simply spellbinding. This is the model that brought fame to Panerai by becoming the official watch for the Royal Italian Navy, and has continued to hold the title for over one hundred years.

Stack Up on Style

discount luxury watchesWhile a well-crafted women’s watch is an accessory that’s sure to stand the test of time, sometimes it’s fun to mix up your look to keep monotony at bay.

A current trend that’s more than a mere flash in the pan fad is mixing luxury watches with bracelets, cuffs and bangles. A great look for daytime, this accessory arrangement can easily be tweaked for evening engagements.

What you’re aiming for here is pleasing contrast so try to source a watch that’s slightly jarring when considered alongside the accompanying accessories e.g. combine a robust, eye-catching  style like the Activa AA201-020 with a generous stack of slim brown leather bracelets for an intriguingly complex look.

For those enamored of fashion’s current fondness for sci-fi looks, the Breil TW1012 (pictured) is the ideal entry piece. Pair this minimalist, slightly masculine timepiece with a sleek black leather cuff for an edgy take on this trend.

A particularly opulent look is easily achieved by teaming one of our more outré women’s watches with several pieces of metallic jewelry. Gold bracelets and studded silver cuffs help in bringing out the brilliance of this watch.

Essential Tips for Storing Luxury Watches

bracelet watchesFor those of us with a taste for the finer watches in life, we know that security and style go hand in hand so ensuring luxury watches are safely stored at home is imperative. Unsure how to go about sourcing a storage method that keeps your favorite brand name watches safe but also shows them off to full effect? Check out our top suggestions below:

Opt for a standard watch box. Since storing watches each in their own original boxes can be untidy and too space-consuming, a watch box offers a simple means of storing each piece of your collection together in one place.

Consider a safe for optimal security. If some of your watches cost more than your car, then it’s advisable you make sure they’re out of sight and under tight lock and key. This is especially true for styles studded with diamonds or made with gold. A quality safe is an essential accessory for a highly valuable watch.

Make-over a humidor. Especially useful for those with a collection of vintage watches, a humidor is the perfect environment for watches that need to be hidden away from moist air and dust. The constancy of temperature and humidity provided by a humidor is ideal for such watches.
