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.

Lookout especially for […]

Maybe that’s blatant; maybe something even more – either way, I don’t mind. Remembering Alberto Santos-Dumont – the very […]
We are now pretty much used to watches that do more than just telling the time. I’m not quite sure how many people opt for them out of pure appreciation as opposed to their sheer inability for draping around a banner with their personal details on it; in my not so humble opinion, it is […]
While I could only speculate about a substantial chunk holding Hesalite dear to their heart, there is no doubt about Sapphire being the crystal of choice for an unlimited number of people.
