Winter Time Classics…

Winter is by far the coldest season on the year. It is also the season of the weakest solar radiation from the sun with the occurrence of both shorter days and longer nights.

Interestingly, the winter season occurs during the months of December through March in the Northern Hemisphere and from June through September in the Southern Hemisphere.

Hence, as we’re experiencing icy and chilly conditions in most parts of the nation with temperatures in 20’s and 30’s in the Northeast, Midwest and Northwest, the climate in South American countries such as Brazil, Argentina and Peru is in the upper 70’s and 80’s.

What Makes You Move?

Whether you’re considering making your first major watch acquisition or looking to enhance your timepiece collection, there are many aspects to take into consideration, especially the watch type, brand, characteristics, cost and movement.

Once you’ve settled on a specific brand or brands, the style and cost of your new timepiece, you’re left with deciding upon which watch movement will be right for you – automatic, mechanical or quartz. Each movement has both its advantages and disadvantages too.

Mechanical watches feature time-honored precision and craftsmanship and hold the distinction of being the oldest watch movement around, dating back to the early 17th Century. Mechanical watches have a spring driven mechanism inside and are powered by a series of gears oscillating back and forth at a constant rate. The one caveat with owning a mechanical watch is that it must be wound by hand on an almost daily basis.

Breitling Windrider Automatic Chronograph

Automatic watches feature a built-in mainspring mechanism that wind automatically from the natural motion of the user’s wrist and provides sufficient energy to keep the movement running without manual winding.

Quartz watches have a vibrating quartz mineral inside that operates with a battery that converts the vibrations into power and time. They do not require self or manual winding. However, the batteries inside must be changed periodically over a period of anywhere from eighteen to thirty-six months.

Although big and bold is the trend for most of today’s top-selling men’s and women’s timepieces from numerous watchmakers around the globe, most notably Invicta, TAG Heuer, Fossil, Michael Kors, Bulova, IWC and Omega, many Scandinavian watchmakers are going against the grade with slim and slender minimalist designs.

4th of July Diamond Sparklers

Millions of Americans will be celebrating the 4th of July this forthcoming weekend attending fireworks exhibits. Fireworks shows of every type, both small and large will be presented Friday and Saturday from neighborhood communities across the nation to major city spectacles in New York City and Washington DC.

Interestingly fireworks  have been used to commemorate the holiday since the very origins or our nation’s birth, before the Declaration of Independence was even signed.

In 1776, our nation’s founding father John Adams envisioned fireworks as part of the annual festivities. In a letter he wrote to his wife Abagail Adams he noted, the day should be celebrated by succeeding generations “as an anniversary solemnized with Pomp and Parade…Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other.”MLACROIX-LC1026-SD502-170
