Spring Escapes

April is almost here and winter’s fury is still played havoc through many parts of the nation. This past week, snow storms hit the northeast and New England and temperatures  were below 60 degrees in most states throughout the nation.

There is no better time than right now to plan a Spring Escape from the cold and travel to the tropics.  Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Playa Del Carmen and South Florida are among the most popular hot spots to travel to this spring.  Each not only offers warmer climates, but incredible beaches too.INVICTA-13683

While you’ll be able to take-in some much needed rays of sunshine,  you’ll also be able to partake in many outdoor water activities while you’re there, including snorkeling, scuba-diving, water-skiing and rafting.

Deep-sea adventures in the tropics call for water-resistant timepieces capable of withstanding more than just 30 or 100 meters of water. You’ll want a wristwatch water resistant to 200 meters or more.

The Invicta Corduba Automatic Chronograph for men is the ideal deep-sea timepiece. This high-performance diver’s watch is water resistant up to 1000 meters or 3300 feet.

The strapping black titanium case is extremely lightweight and incredibly durable. Yellow-gold plated unidirectional rotating bezel on top has highly legible engraved markers. The attractive black Kevlar strap  is ideal for deep-sea exploration.

Chronogrpah dial features three subdials, an automatic day and date calendar, luminous hands and hour markers. Features include a small-second, 30-minute and 12-hour register. Quality crafted with premium Swiss-made automatic movement inside.

The Invicta  Corduba Chronograph is available at online retailer The Watchery.

Maurice Lacroix: Masters of Time

Swiss watches reflect a rich heritage in time-keeping excellence. A number of prestigious watchmakers, including Lucien Piccard, Jean Richard and Graham have been around for centuries and carry the name of their eponymous founders.

Others such as Omega, Rolex, Vulcain and Maurice Lacroix are purely brands with no ties to a single individual or inventor.

Founded in 1975, Maurice Lacroix is the leading Swiss watchmaker of prized mechanical timepieces. Every element of the brand’s watches: from the intricate movements inside to the outer cases are produced expressly for Maurice Lacroix at the company’s manufacturing plants.

The brand started as a manufacturer of private-label third party watches for its parent company Desco, who decided in 1975 to market its own brand of wristwatches. Five years later, Maurice Lacroix timepieces were so successful, Desco stopped producing third party watches.MP7218-SS001-110

The introduction of the Masterpiece collection in the early 1990s gave Maurice Lacroix world-wide popularity and led the way to a wide array of heralded automatic and mechanical watch collections for men and women, including the Les Classiques and Pontos series.

Many of today’s best-selling Maurice Lacroix men’s and women’s timepieces are showcased this week at online retailer The Watchery’s “Masters of Time” event.

The Maurice Lacroix GMT Mechanical Timepiece for men is one of the distinguished timepieces featured in the promotion. This extraordinary mechanical wristwatch has a generously sized case in polished steel, that is 46mm diameter and 14mm thick case.

The handsome black alligator strap and fluted polished steel crown add to the luxurious good looks. The skeleton crystal exhibition caseback lets you see the intricate mechanical movement inside.

The silvery-white and black dial has an Art Deco feeling with luminous sword hands and highly stylized Roman numeral hour markers. Features include  a small-second subdial, power-reserve, GMT time and date indicator.

Additional features include Swiss-made hand-wound mechanical movement inside and water-resistance to 50 meters or 165 feet.

Rado – Innovators of Time

Ceramic watches have been the top fashion choice for both men and women since the year 2000, when Chanel introduced the celebrated J12 Ceramic Watch Collection. Fellow French design house Christian Dior soon followed suit with their own collection of ceramic timepieces.

High-tech ceramic watches not only make a high-fashion statement, they are virtually scratch-resistant, mirror-bright, hypoallergenic and exceptionally comfortable on the wrist.RADO-R13810702

Interestingly, Swiss watchmaker Rado has been producing high-tech ceramic watches since 1986, when they introduced the Integral timepiece, featuring a ceramic case and bracelet.

In 1996 the Rado Ceramica became the world’s first platinum colored ceramic watch, while in 2008 the brand introduced the Sintra Gold Jubile watch featuring a gold colored ceramic case and bracelet.

Chanel may hold the distinction of making ceramic watches chic and trendy, but Rado holds the distinction of inventing ceramic timepieces.

The Rado Sintra Jubilé men’s watch is a real eye-opener. The lustrous square shaped case and horizontal link bracelet are crafted in high-tech ceramic and feature a silver colored finish that is mirror bright and incredibly durable.

The Ides Of March

“Beware of the ides of March,” is a very popular phrase made famous by William Shakespeare in his play Julius Caesar. The term corresponds to the date March 15th in present day calendars and also marks the time of the assassination of Caesar in 44 BC.

The assassination of Caesar started the transformation of the Roman Republic to the Roman Empire and Rome’s dominance in the world at the time.
