Glashutte Original: Watch Buying Deja Vu

It’s strange how often watch obsessed people repeat their buying preferences over and over again. There are the guys who proudly show off their collection of say, dive watches, often by the same brand, and announce that they are going to add another watch to the collection – turns out it’s going to be another

You will find here a selection of timepieces that will blow your eyes, your mind, and possibly – your wallet – if “watch fever” eliminates the constraints of fiscal responsibility. While a month has gone by since this year’s festivities have come and gone, the memories of my favorite timepieces continue to happily linger.

The GMT watch: A popular and practical complication for the real world

Of all the watches which have complications (anything beyond the function of telling the time) my favorites are those which display one or more timezones.

The Virtues of Simplicity In Watches

I love simple watches.

Mechanical complications are a wonderful thing, to be sure, and ones

The Dedicated Dress Watch

As seems to be the case every year, the December holidays are upon us. And, while deep down, we all KNOW that our family, friends, and good health are what really matter, it simply wouldn’t be human of us not to have a wish list of at least a couple of shamelessly decadent material things
