Joshua & Sons is a fairly new face in the world of watches, but they are inspired to construct unique creations by a great many waves of cultural forces, basing their designs on the confluence of the hip-hop revolution in American with quality London timepieces. Hip-hop is the culture from which so many colorful and eye-popping styles emerged; and because of its all-inclusive aspect, this urban trend allowed oneself to inject their own personality. There were no real set rules…except to be original!  It is a lifestyle that is continuously evolving with its driving force being people’s desire to be seen and heard.

Meanwhile, London has long been the center of fashion in the United Kingdom boasting a wide range of international styles integrated with a modern British influence. Smart and innovative, British design has recently has become rather unconventional, blending traditional styles with modern techniques. In the world of men’s designer watches, Joshua & Sons, with roots steeped in London vogue, embodies a unique trans-Atlantic fusion of American urban design and the very latest European watch-making technology.

Get The Right Movement

When you are beginning to research such hefty investments as those regarding luxury watches, even given the great deals on discount luxury watches available only at The Watchery, you want to know what all of your options are. Today we are going to talk about movement.

Movement refers to the interior mechanism of a watch that drives the timekeeping functions; in other words, the movement is the watch’s engine. Mechanical, automatic or kinetic, or quartz movements are the most common varieties available.   Movements may be entirely mechanical, entirely electronic (potentially with no moving parts), or they might be a combination of the two. Most watches intended mainly for timekeeping today have electronic movements, with mechanical hands on the watch face indicating the time.

Mechanical movements use an escapement mechanism to control and limit the unwinding and winding parts of a spring, converting what would otherwise be a simple unwinding into a controlled and periodic energy release. A self-winding, kinetic, or automatic watch is one that rewinds the mainspring of a mechanical movement by the natural motions of the wearer’s body. Electronic movements have few or no moving parts, as they use a tiny quartz crystal to provide a stable time base for a mostly electronic movement. While mechanicals are old fashioned and intricately crafted, automatics are more efficient and environmentally friendly, and quartz a good balance of the two. Whatever movement you prefer, head on over to The Watchery to get moving on a great deal today.

Swiss Heritage Watches

This gorgeous Men’s heritage IP Bezel watch with genuine black leather strap is both stunning and on sale right now online at TheWatchery.com. But, the heritage of Swiss watches themselves is equally impressive.

For a time, the Germans were on top.  The first timepieces to be worn were made in the 16th century in the German cities of Nuremberg and Augsburg. They were transitional in size between clocks and modern watches, fastened to clothing or worn on a chain around the neck. The shape later evolved into a rounded form; these were later called Nuremberg eggs.

But Swiss watchmakers would contribute to the worldwide spread of watches in short order. In Geneva, Georges-Auguste Leschot, a pioneer in the field of interchangeability in clock-making, invented various machine tools. In 1830 he designed an anchor escapement, which was later mass produced, and which spread the fame and craftsmanship of Swiss watches far and wide.

For over a quarter of a century now, the makers of Swiss Legend have created their own legendary reputation by bringing their loyal customers timepieces steeped in tradition, design and versatility. For the best brands in all our luxury watches, come check out our online catalog today!

Seiko Watches Great Prices For Great Watches

Getting a  sharp looking watch no longer means you have to break the bank. There are a number of brands that bring luxury styles with moderate and often even cheap prices. This does not mean these brands are not durable well made watches. Take for example Seiko watches. These are good looking time pieces and over at The Watchery you can get some incredibly stylish options for between $65 and $130. That is a great price, so great it might make you skeptical about the quality of the items.

Surprisingly however I know many people who have gone for these moderately priced Seiko watches and all of them across the board have made the watches last a rather solid length of time. Months bleed into years and these watches keep on ticking and looking sharp. It is a great asset for a watch to be durable but in a lot of ways affordability can be an even greater asset. Discovering that these two qualities are actually not mutually exclusive can be quite liberating stylistically.

Once I found these fine watches at these great rates I started to find that I could have a different watch for every day of the week if I wanted to.
