Rolex Time-Keeping Excellence…

The brand is also noted for being one of the best watch brands that keeps it value over time and depreciates far less than perhaps other watch brand.

Wilsdorf and Davis opened a watch production facility in Le Chaux-de Fonds, Switzerland three years later in 1908 and registered the Rolex trademark name that same year, incorporating the standards of their high-end private labels in a new brand that has gone on to become synonymous with time-keeping excellence.

In 1910, Rolex was the very first watchmaker to be awarded official Chronometer certification from the highly esteemed COSC (Official Swiss Chronometer Test Institute) for its precision crafted automatic and mechanical timepieces.

Today almost all Rolex timepieces feature automatic movements inside and also have official Chronometer certification. You’ll find many outstanding Rolex watches at TheWatchery.com, including prestigious styles from the esteemed Daytona, Oyster Datejust, Submariner and Yacht-Master Collections.

Leather Strap Luxury…

Leather strap watches offer an air of prominence and time-honored distinction  to the wrist. Whether featuring a crocodile, lizard, ostrich, alligator of supple calfskin strap, a leather timepiece has long been associated with classic, traditional dress watch styles, while a bracelet model has a more sporty, contemporary look and appeal.

OMEGA-5068-SD
Omega Constellation Quadra

For generations leather watch styles have remained popular and widely used by prestigious watchmakers from Cartier, Chopard, Graham, Omega and TAG Heuer to Invicta, Oris, Tissot, Lucien Piccard, Bulova, Citizen and Seiko.

Cost efficiency is perhaps the one aspect many watchmakers feature exotic-skin and genuine cowhide leather on their watches. Numerous high-end luxury timepieces feature cases crafted in white or yellow gold and pairing the cases with matching white or yellow gold bracelets would be cost prohibitive to both consumers and watchmakers alike.

Leather strap watches are highlighted this week at TheWatchery.com with the site’s Leather Strap Luxury event. Over 90 popular men’s and women’s leather strap watches are featured in the promotion, including highly sought-after styles from Omega, Oris, Michael Kors,  Raymond Weil, Victorinox Swiss Army, TW Steel, Swiss Legend, Lucien Piccard, Ingersoll, Ted Lapidus, Rotary and Red Line.

Time-Honored Classics…

In today’s ever changing world of fashion and trends, some classic items rarely if ever go out of style. The Burberry trench coat and cashmere scrarf easily come to mind. Since the late 1870’s Burberry has been producing men and women’s trench coats featuring beige cotton gabardine fabric exteriors lined with the brand’s signature check pattern.

ROLEX-116400GV-PO
Rolex Oyster Milgauss

The Burberry trench coat remains a popular fashion mainstay throughout the globe today and has been worn by renowned world leaders, entertainers and athletes. The brand’s iconic check-pattern cashmere scarves have also been a fashion mainstay for many decades and are more popular today than they were in the 1900’s.

Notably very little has changed in both the styles of the Burberry trench coats or scarves, outside perhaps double and single breasted buttons and protective finishes on the coats along with slightly updated patterns on the scarves and coat linings.

In the world of horology, some wristwatches hold the distinction of being time-honored classics. Prestigious watchmakers Rolex, Bulova, Movado, Maurice Lacroix, Oris, Gucci, Lucien Piccard and Raymond Weil have been producing fine timepieces for decades and a number of their styles have remained time-keeping classics as well. These brands are highlighted this week in the Time Honored Classics event at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.

To The Moon And Back…

The moon has certainly stirred the imagination of many popular watchmakers. In the early 1960’s,  Bulova, Longines, Wittnauer and Omega were in competition to produce the very first watch to be worn on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969.

Although American watchmakers Bulova and Wittnauer had the domestic edge, Swiss watchmaker Omega won out with the Speedmaster mechanical timepiece which featured a Plexiglas crystal and dust-proof elements, two essential characteristics necessary for the moon landing.

More notably, lunar timepieces have held a far longer heritage in the world of horology. For generations preeminent watchmakers Patek Philippe, Oris, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Franck Muller, Lucien Piccard, Omega, Chopard, IWC, Vacheron and Zenith have been producing Moon Phase timepieces.

Moon phase timepieces follow the progression of the moon in its different phases, from the new moon and first quarter to the full moon and last quarter. The different phases of the moon are presented on a window of the watch dial. A rotating disc on the dial displays the portion of the moon as it could be seen from the earth. The cycle is designed to feature the actual 29.54 life cycles of new moon to new moon.

Popular Moon Phase watches are highlighted this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com with the March Moon Phase Time Event. Over forty Moon Phase timepieces are featured in the promotion, including highly sought-after styles from Maurice Lacroix, Oris, Egard, Frederique Constant, MOMO Design, Croton, Lucien Piccard, Akribos XXIV, Ingersoll and Invicta.

Eisenhower was the first US President to wear a Rolex watch and was followed by Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan. Eisenhower was also seen wearing a Heuer chronograph watch during his tenure as President and also wore a Hamilton watch as well.
