Quick reminder: it will be the third Sunday in June this weekend.
That means you’re probably still on the hook for finding a Father’s Day gift. So, instead of the obvious last-minute #1 Dad mug or bottle of booze, you ought to get him something thoughtful (and last-minute).
There was a time when a man wearing just a watch was considered flashy—but nowadays, with the addition of lapel pins, tie clips, bracelets, et cetera, to the menswear oeuvre, there’s a lot more to take into consideration when adorning oneself.
With the weather already warming up, chances are you’re going to find yourself diving into some body of water in the near future.
And whether that’s going to be a lake, an ocean or a rooftop kiddie pool, you’re going to want a proper dive watch—with the requisite depth rating.
It would seem that another legendary Swiss mechanical watchmaker has thrown its hat into the smartwatch ring...
Today IWC announced its plans for IWC Connect, a similar concept to the Montblanc e-Strap we covered a while back, which straps a miniature smartwatch to a traditional timepiece.
You’ve heard of timeshares before (usually in the company of billowy aloha shirts and drinks with umbrellas).
But here’s a new one: Marc+Spring, an online startup launching this week that offers fractional ownership in high-end wrist candy—allowing you to wear a Patek Philippe for an allotted amount of time, without having to pony up the entire 90-grand price tag.
There’s been a lot of talk about smartwatches lately...
But Ressence makes the sort of smart watch (two words) that we can get behind.
The brand pushes the boundaries of watch innovation, by using existing technology—in the mechanical sense—to make a watch that’s more interesting than anything that needs to be charged every few days. (Nor will their watches ever require a software update.)
There weren’t really any big surprises at yesterday’s Apple event in Cupertino.
We basically got a rehashing of what to expect from the Apple Watchand when to expect to be able to buy one (April 24). And we finally learned what to expect to pay. The base price of $349 seemed like a forgone conclusion, but the big reveal was that the “Edition” line of watches would cost upwards of $10,000. Yep, you’re starting at five figures for the opportunity to buy a gilded version of the same $349 watch. Naturally, we’ve got a better idea of how to spend that 10 grand, on some serious timepieces.
It seems like Swatch has been around forever, making bare-bones Swiss watches favored by kids, minimalists, ’80s enthusiasts and, more recently,
But they’d gone largely unheralded by horology buffs, until they unveiled the Sistem51 line of watches at Basel World a few years ago. The fully automatic watches (named for the 51 parts hermetically sealed into the case) were made entirely by machine and boasted some impressive stats for a watch that costs less than it would to service most high-end timepieces.
As you’ve probably surmised, there’s a certain romantic holiday happening this weekend.
And if you’re still searching for the right token of your affection, let us suggest giving the gift of time. Of course, depending on a number of different factors—length of relationship, her tastes, your wallet—gifting a watch can mean different things. And different price points.
