Life without liberty is misery, as Andrew Hamilton had put it while defending freedom of speech at House of Representatives, Pennsylvania. Andrew Hamilton owned the land on which factories were built and the watch company took his name. He is the lawyer who founded the city of Lancaster in Pennsylvania and imposed strict law and
Minimalistic designs have been around for decades. Bauhaus to mid-century modernists, the less-is-more outlook remains a big mainstay. This whole watch-trip over the past few years I faced clichés of which branding watch designs as ‘timeless’ or ‘heavenly’ is the most abound. It doesn’t make sense. You can simply talk about minimalist watches instead. Their
Let me clear it right away, right at the very first of the discussion. No man has ever successfully broken down the world of female psychology; I’ll merely attempt towards gauging its preferences for timepieces. It states clearly that I’m not accustomed towards providing suggestions for ladies’ watches. This, however; I certainly know that a
Bauhaus: The house of structure. This school of fine arts and designs’ working tenet was form following function. Anything unnecessary and superfluous got no place in the final product. Type: German styled architecture. Founder: Walter Gropius, 1918. Existence: 1919 – 1933, Germany. Some watch design concepts were never meant to be the shy types. That kept
Finding a reputable pocket watch after about a century they went out of fashion along with the horse and buggy and waistcoat is undoubtedly tough. Still, you can get the last tailor-made to your specifications but not the watch. But forgetting that particular flourish and ceremony with which a man whipped his pocket watch out
“Nothing should come between your watch and your real happiness. Let no fashion stigma and perceptions of ‘what a watch should look like’ pollute an extremely enjoyable experience. Remove the elements that are not the most important and valuable to you. Get set on your watch hunting spree. Go!” Most of us are in the
An average working man’s wrists, if they could speak, would scream every now and then for something less bulky and simple but trendy and elegant at the same time. Last few years have seen been bigger been equaled to better and these kinds of watches we are talking about didn’t stand an exception. Extremely formal
” – Ventura caught the public eye immediately; chief reason being – it is miles away from those lame attempts that butcher the very will of donning a watch. IT IS SUPER IRRITATING TO LOOK WEIRD WHEN YOUR DAILY LIFE IS GIVING YOU A HARD TIME. This is where the Ventura comes to rescue.-“ Ahhh…the
We already know when wristwatches caught up as a trend among men. The WWI soldiers benefitted immensely as pocket watches found a new abode on their wrists but well, what about them who are not exactly fighting a war on the battlegrounds? Especially now, when time is displayed almost on everything – From your computer
As I’ve gotten deeper with gentlemen on the more serious sides of human nature, I gradually found out such men to be always on the lookout for the perfect tool. Be it something to fix up gadgets; or something to travel. To play! Or to manage their time! At times, they want in all simplicity
“These are admittedly turning rare and the scarcity of new ones to blame. Orient’s initiative towards the problem revealed an interesting one.” A good pocket watch is fascinating. A nice pocket watch is even more! But what if it’s a fine pocket watch? That’s absolutely fascinating; to Gonzo at least! It doesn’t necessarily be Swiss
What are usually the first names that come to mind as expensive (and super-expensive) watches? Pateks, Lange, AP, J-LC, Rolex, Ulysse Nardin, Franck Muller…the list stretches to quite afar; mostly into the Swiss territories. High-end luxury timepieces spell S-W-I-S-S to a large chunk. Also, P-R-I-C-E-Y! Question remains: “Why?” The nature of the movements is a vital determinant. We know that more or less. Mechanical watches take more labor to make and are more expensive than quartz.
“-Oh, not another horologist’s rant!” Not everyone is interested in the technical contents of a watch – which I understand – some are not at all! All they want is sporting a nice timepiece; good to look at. Armani watches – I find them to do that in style – are quite in line in their overall stylistic existence, some being extraordinarily understated and cool. There’s no doubt about watches from this Italian designer being successful!
-“With high-priced (and very high-priced) watches, even a relatively well-informed person undergoes a certain dilemma; of what’s been told and what he will get. Choosing an awesome watch thus gets difficult and then, again you come back to reality. So, understand first that different watches have different objectives; so to speak, a watch is intended to be appreciated on its own terms.” Affordable – in its real sense – is simply ‘less expensive’. To some, those two very words add a stigma right away;
