Bedat & Co. makes classic, feminine timepieces for women. The brand’s founder, Simone Bedat, prides herself in being one of the few women to have founded a luxury Swiss watch brand at the time. The luxury watches are recognizable by the number 8 standing out from the others, which are marked by Roman numerals, diamond indices or other markers. This unique feature, also the symbol for infinity, is representative of the timeless quality of Bedat & Co. watches.

The Artistic Inspiration of Charriol Watches
Charriol is a mixture of French, Swiss and Celtic inspiration, making its watches unique among luxury timepieces. The company was founded in Geneva in 1983 by Phillipe Charriol, a Frenchman. A lover of art and history, he drew inspiration for his first collection of watches from Celtic ironwork that he had seen in the British Museum. He was the first to use a twisted cable as a decorative motif and watch bracelet. Charriol’s luxury watches are the only ones to have this feature, as the unique design is now patented and used in a variety of products produced by the brand.
The brand has been an enormous success, having sold over 1.35 million watches and 2.3 million jewelry pieces. They also make belts, handbags and writing instruments. Each design is influenced by Charriol’s passion for art, and the brand’s motto L’Art de Vivre la Difference, translates as The Art of Living Differently. With his brand’s success, Charriol even created a charity supporting the arts and artists.
Featured here is one of Charriol’s luxury watches for women, no. CAH-81-0-98-HS01. The elegant timepiece has a white crocodile strap, white mother of pearl dial, and features a total of 40 white diamonds! It has been marked down from an original price of $3,495.00 to $1,095 at The Watchery.

Don’t Miss The Swiss!
Our Spring Clearance sale is sadly at an end, but if you are still shopping for watches, never fear! We have started a brand new promotion today on many of our brand-name watches made in Switzerland, the birthplace of designer, intricately crafted timepieces.
But Switzerland has other claims to fame, too, and some of them are either pretty neat or vaguely hilarious.
- The portable personal cassette player with headphones (“Walkman”) was first tested in the woods of St. Moritz, Switzerland, in 1972.
- Thumbs Up has a whole other meaning in Switzerland, where it also signifies the number 1. By the way, the number 1 is often written like a 7 in the US and a 7 is written with a horizontal cross.
- Latin is the third most used language. It is not actually spoken, but appears on the stamps and coins as “confoederatio helvetica” or “helvetia”. This is the Latin name of Switzerland. This is why the international abbreviation for Switzerland is CH.
Of course, watches are still a very important export from the country with more banks than dentists. This elegant women’s Concerto watch from Movado features a contemporary look that’s sure to complement your attire, with smooth mother of pearl dial, quartz movement (Swiss, of course), and stainless steel strap.

Swiss Military Calibre Watches Perform In Any Environment
We have talked more than once on this blog about Swiss Legend watches and extolled their unique heritage and technical virtues. But perhaps you are looking for something just a tad more exacting, built for function and endurance over pleasing aesthetics. Enter Swiss Military Caliber watches. These are built with all the timekeeping precision that all Swiss movements are famous for, and with the additional hardiness to meet the toughest Alpine conditions.
Now, the words “Swiss” and “military” may seem odd together considering Switzerland’s reputation for neutrality. Only about 5% of the country’s land and air forces are professional soldiers. The rest are ordinary citizens, who are compulsorily enlisted in the country’s militia system. These citizen soldiers keep all their personal equipment, including weapons, with them at home. This requirement has resulted in the popularity of military-grade gear, including high-performance watches as well as the world-renowned ‘Swiss army knife.’
This Swiss Military Calibre Men’s Revolution watch with black dial, including large, readable numbers to help ease timekeeping while hiking or engaging in other outdoor pursuits where visibility may change, as well as a comfortable and functional black rubber is brand new and available for TheWatchery.com’s signature free shipping. Come check out all our high-functioning and designer watches online today!
Swiss Watches, The Standard
What exactly is “Swiss precision?” It is a phrase you hear thrown around about dozens of products and yet it is almost solely derived from the precise time keeping of Swiss watches. This is because Switzerland is the standard in watch manufacturing and in many ways used that reputation to build a consensus that Swiss engineers were some of the best and most innovative in the world.
Even a cursory knowledge of the history of brand name watches will reveal this perception to be one hundred percent valid. The Swiss have spent time in the intervening century or so since they became the standard in engineering to take that sense and apply it to everything from pop-songs to automobile manufacturing. They have woven intricate ideas about how things work and the parts of those things collaborate to make some fantastic and practical leaps in the evolution of machinery and more.
Brand name watches, of course, still remain the Swiss people’s most note worthy export. This is likely because, ironically, their work in this field remains so timeless and continues to be the standard in the industry. If you are an enthusiastic collector or admirer of watches, it is likely you have a love affair with the Swiss.
