10 THINGS NOT TO DO WHEN WEARING A WATCH

Wearing a watch is something that goes beyond a simple gesture. It could be considered a kind of art. To make it easier we are going to show you 10 tips that should not be done when we want to wear a watch. In order to show elegance and style. 

1.- WATCH OVER THE SLEEVE OF THE SHIRT

Discussions aside, this is unanimous and not open for discussion. The watch is designed to be worn under the sleeves, it will only be displayed when arm movements are made. 

2.- CHECK THE TIME IN THE MIDDLE OF AN APPOINTMENT

The time is always looked at discratically. At no time do we want to show our companion that we are in a hurry or need to leave. This can lead to misunderstandings or discomfort. 

3.- TALK ABOUT YOUR WATCH

Talking about watches is something very specific, unless you are both watch lovers and this world is a topic to avoid. 

4.- A DISPROPORTIONATE WATCH

Tell me what you brag about and I’ll tell you what you lack. A watch of disproportionate dimensions is synonymous with lack of confidence or a desire to hide insecurities. 

5.- LEATHER STRAP WHEN IT’S HOT

The leather bracelet is an elegant option, but in extreme heat the sweat deteriorates the material. You should always know which bracelet to wear in more extreme conditions. Opt for a steel bracelet. 

6.- ILL-FITTING WATCH

You must wear the watch just before the protruding ulna bone on the outside of the wrist. In order to obtain comfort and elegance, it is adjusted so that it is neither droppind nor too tight. 

7.- BEING LATE

Arriving late? Never, lack of respect and bad manners. Let’s not forget that the watch is there to tell the time, it is not a simple accessory. 

8.- WEAR YOUR WATCH ON THE LEFT

Nowadays it doesn’t matter the fact you wear it on the right or the left. No more rules! But be careful not to choose your dominant hand, for optimum comfort and reading. 

9.- WINDING YOUR WATCH

Wearers of mechanical watches with manual winding know that a watch is always wound after it has been removed from the wrist. A simple gesture that avoids exerting unnecessary pressure on the stem and crown.

10.- Wear your watch with an evening dress

-Baroness Rothschild-

“when you  celebrate, time stands still”

This is something that does not apply to men. But never forget, in the case of a lady, she should always do as she pleases. 

These small tips are tips for the correct use of wristwatches. We hope they can help you and above all make you enjoy your favorite timepieces more.

THE BIG 5 OF THE DIVING WATCHES BRANDS

The primary use of dive watches is far less important to their owners today than it was in the past. This does not make dive watches and their brands any less interesting. 

In this article we are going to expose which ones are these brands:

OMEGA

Rolex

BlancPain

Panerai

Doxa

For the following we are going to focus on the brands OMEGA and Panerai.

OMEGA

One of the leading brands of diving watches is, and always has been, Omega, which launched the Omega Marine in 1932. At the time, the water resistance of the watches was at most splash proof, it was the first watch that could be worn underwater. The Omega Marine was immersed in Lake Geneva to a depth of 73 meters (240 feet) and then tested in a pressure chamber where it withstood a depth of 135 meters (443 feet). This experience gave the brand the impetus to develop water-resistant watches, making Omega one of the leading brands of diving watches. The popularity of scuba diving in the years following the Second World War made this period the first era of modern diving watches. Omega launched its famous Seamaster 300 in 1957 as part of its Speedmaster, Railmaster and Seamaster trilogy. This timepiece became a cult watch and is still the inspiration for the current Seamaster 300 collection. Today, Omega continues to develop advanced diving tools for professional divers.

PANERAI

Panerai is also a famous name in the world of diving watches. In the first half of the 20th century, Panerai earned a reputation as the official supplier of marine instruments to the Italian Royal Navy, as well as watches for the army’s combat divers. The timepieces manufactured by Panerai in the 1930s for the Italian Navy are still very popular among diving watch enthusiasts today. For the record, all of these dive watches were designed and manufactured by Rolex. With their oversized cushion-shaped cases and minimalist dials with large numerals, these watches we know today as Radiomir still stand out today.

Diving watches are classics among watchmaking history, they’re still trendy nowadays.

WHAT MAKES IT ART

What are complications?

The word complication indicates something that is considered complex or difficult. As
regards watchmaking, a complication consists of additional functions that complement a watch.

What difference does a complication make?

These features added to a watch represent a serious challenge to skilled watchmakers who have to incorporate them in spaces as small as a wristwatch case.
The more functions a watch has, the more complicated it will be to manufacture.
Today, complications add value to watches and directly affect their price. There are many different types of complications, including chronograph, power reserve, tourbillon, etc.
Here we are going to focus on the tourbillon, the GMT and the chronograph.

Tourbillon

What is a tourbillon? In basic terms, it is a feature that improves the accuracy of mechanical watches by offsetting the effects that gravity can have on certain parts of the movement when the watch changes position.

Tourbillon watches feature a tourbillon carriage that is often visible on the watch’s face.

One example is this Jaeger-LeCoultre…

GMT

This is a very useful complication, especially for frequent travellers, as it makes it possible to quickly see the time in the place you are visiting and at home. GMT stands for “Greenwich Mean Time”, thus giving meaning to the world time function. 

GMT is the mean solar time at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London, which marks the Prime Meridian that runs from the North Pole to the South Pole.

This Panerai features a tourbillon as well as a GMT function…

Chronograph

It is used to measure short time intervals. To do so, a watch with a simple chronograph has two push-buttons, one on each side of the crown, that are used to start, stop and reset the measurement. 

There are other kinds of chronographs: 

  • Mono-pusher: three actions are performed with a single push-button
  • Rattrapante: allows you to time different events that start but do not stop at the same time.
  • Flyback: allows the chronograph hand to return to zero and restart immediately by pressing the push-button once. 

The SEAMASTER below has a chronograph…

The world of watches is extensive and complex, which is why timepieces are considered highly complex works of art.

The Breitling Navitimer, the favourite watch of aviators

The Breitling Navitimer is undoubtedly one of the primary cult watches on the watch scene. This iconic watch stands out with its slide rule dial. Pilots swear by it, and for good reason. A closer look at this legendary model.

The story behind the Navitimer

The Breitling Navitimer was created in 1952 to provide pilots with a true instrument they could wear on their wrist. Its name is a contraction of the words «navigation» and «timer». The slide rule on this watch allows wearers to analyse and solve all air navigation calculations. Hence, it is possible to calculate things such as fuel consumption and flight time and convert miles to kilometres. Indeed, when it came out, it was extremely popular with collectors.

The rebirth of the Navitimer

The Navitimer disappeared somewhat in the 1970s. Yet, it came back on the scene in 2009 when it was equipped with a manufacture movement, Breitling calibre 01, a technologically advanced chronograph movement that is COSC certified. Subsequently, in 2014, the case size was increased to enhance readability. Since then, the Navitimer has continued to captivate fans of watchmaking and aviation.

Watch certifications

All watch connoisseurs are concerned about certifications, as they should be. Certifications are a guarantee of quality and precision. They reflect the excellence, knowhow and passion of Swiss watch manufacturers. Would you like to know more about watch certifications? Here you go.

COSC certification

In 1973, five watchmaking cantons (Bern, Geneva, Neuchâtel, Soleure and Vaud) and the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry decided to found the Official Swiss Chronometer Testing Institute, also known as the COSC. This independent control body grants certificates of excellence exclusively to Swiss watches.

To earn this certification, a watch undergoes performance-related testing. The average daily rate, the difference between rates in horizontal and vertical position, and the variation in rate depending on temperature are all fundamental criteria to earn this certification. Many major brands have their models regularly certified by the COSC, including Rolex, OMEGA, Tissot and TAG Heuer.

OMEGA METAS certification

In 2015, legendary watchmaker OMEGA unveiled its first Master Chronometer (METAS) certified watch, the OMEGA Globemaster Co-Axial Master Chronometer. This certification can be obtained by all Swiss watches, in addition to COSC certification. It ensures excellence in terms of performance and resistance to magnetic fields.

This certification, granted in addition to COSC certification, is open to all Swiss watches. It guarantees an unprecedented level of performance in terms of precision and resistance to magnetic fields.

A watch is rigorously tested to earn METAS certification. Indeed, it must withstand a magnetic field of up to 15,000 gauss. It must also have superior power reserve and water resistance. These tests take place over the course of 10 days. At the end of this time, if a watch passes the tests, it will receive METAS certification. Such certification is a way to dispel many concerns about the proper functioning of a timepiece.

There are still other certifications. If you would like to learn more, feel free to ask us for advice about certifications directly at our shop.
