    "I'm very proud of my gold pocket watch. My grandfather, on his deathbed, sold me this watch." - Woody Allen.

    "I don’t wear a [Cartier] Tank watch to tell the time. In fact, I never wind it. I wear a Tank because it’s the watch to wear." - Andy Warhol.

    "Like a genial hotelier, Rolex has introduced me to some of the nicest people. I ask about their Rolex and they ask about mine. It's as marvelous a conversation piece as it is a timepiece." - Maurice Chevalier.

    A CLOCK is an instrument used to indicate, keep, and co-ordinate time. A silent instrument missing such a mechanism has traditionally been known as a TIMEPIECE. In general usage today a "clock" refers to any device for measuring and displaying the time. Watches and other timepieces that can be carried on one's person are often distinguished from clocks. The clock is one of the oldest human inventions, meeting the need to consistently measure intervals of time shorter than the natural units: the day; the lunar month; and the year. Devices operating on several different physical processes have been used over the millennia, culminating in the clocks of today.

    A WATCH is a timepiece that is made to be worn on a person. It is usually a wristwatch, worn on the wrist with a strap or bracelet. In addition to the time, modern watches often display the day, date, month and year, and electronic watches may have many other functions.

    Most inexpensive and medium-priced watches used mainly for timekeeping are electronic watches with quartz movements. Expensive, collectible watches valued more for their workmanship and aesthetic appeal than for simple timekeeping, often have purely mechanical movements and are powered by springs, even though mechanical movements are less accurate than more affordable quartz movements.

    Before the inexpensive miniaturization that became possible in the 20th century, most watches were pocket watches, which often had covers and were carried in a pocket and attached to a watch chain or watch fob. Watches evolved in the 1600s from spring powered clocks, which appeared in the 1400s.

    A CHRONOGRAPH is a specific type of watch that is used as a stopwatch combined with a display watch. A basic chronograph has an independent sweep second hand; it can be started, stopped, and returned to zero by successive pressure on the stem.

    The modern day chronograph works by pushing a start button, normally located at the two o clock position, to begin recording time, and by pushing the same button to stop the recording. When the button is pushed to start the recording, a series of three (in more complicated and more precise chronographs there are more wheels) train wheels start turning. The smallest has a revolution time of one second, the next sixty seconds, and the final one has a revolution time of sixty minutes. The three train wheels interact with one another and record how long it has been since the start button has been activated.

    In horology (study of clocks), COMPLICATION refers to any feature in a timepiece beyond the simple display of hours, minutes, and seconds. A timepiece indicating only hours, minutes, and seconds is otherwise known as a simple movement. Common additions such as day/date displays, chronographs, and automatic winding mechanisms are usually not sufficient to permit a movement to be called complicated. The more complications in a watch, the more difficult it is to design, create, assemble, and repair. A typical date-display chronograph may have up to 250 parts, while a particularly complex watch may have a thousand or more parts. Watches with several complications are referred to as grandes complications.

Red is the hue of gold that has been traditionally used for dress watches, special editions or high complications, but these five rose gold watches update that tradition with subtly modern tweaks, preserving the formality of the hue while adding a contemporary kick. Since all are made by small or independent brands - and since they are gold - they will be produced in small quantities, which makes them rare and collectible, with investment potential."

Sometimes, however, it's less clear why certain specifications are included. Jewel count, for instance. Many watch enthusiasts probably have some idea why watch movements have jewels in them, but some don't. And yet the jewel count is not only a feature of spec sheets in watch articles, it's also often specified by the manufacturer on the movement itself. Frequency is another one - most modern movements made in any quantity run at 28,800 vph, so why bring it up in the specs if that particular frequency is more or less ubiquitous?"

It follows Michael Caine as Jack Carter who travels to Newcastle to avenge his brother’s death and winds up single-handedly taking on the local mob.

In fact, Rieussec invented what is referred to as the 'time writer' - an inking chronograph. Essentially, two dial disks were put in place in a box and were connected with a small ink pen of sorts that would mark the start of an event on one disk and the finish time of the event on second small disk. The ink writer was the inspiration behind Montblanc’s Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph collection. Now, in honor of the 200th anniversary of that inking chronograph, the brand releases the new Star Legacy Nicolas Rieussec Chronograph Limited Edition 200 watch."

  • Patek Philippe Pumps Up The Volume On Its Minute Repeaters With New High-Tech Amplification System - "As if to remind us there is more to this elite brand than pretty dials on iconic steel watches, Patek Philippe is launching a revolutionary new sound amplification and diffusion system for its chiming watches. In layman’s terms: It’s like putting the minute repeater on stereo. In fact, the system was inspired by the way an old-fashioned phonograph works. The key component is a small, suspended wafer made of sapphire crystal poised on the end of a tuning fork-like suspension. The crystal disk vibrates and sends the sound back down the fork and along a titanium ring that carries the sound outside the case. The result? It powers up the volume of a minute repeater by six times its usual rate. A chiming watch using the new system sounds the same at 60 meters as a classic minute repeater does from 10 meters says Patek Philippe. It is launching today in a 15-piece limited edition as Ref. 5750P. Price upon request."

Patek Philippe holds no less than 31 patents on the movement, seven of which are applied specifically to this reference.

  • Why We Spend More For Luxury Watch Brands - "When consumers spend money on most luxury goods, they are, in fact, purchasing two things at once. First, they are purchasing a 'nice object' or service. That is the thing they are acquiring, and for it to be an authentic luxury, it has to be manufactured rather well, often with a refined design and using less-than-ordinary materials. But that alone doesn’t make anything a luxury good. The second thing consumers are purchasing when getting a luxury good is the brand name on the good. This is a more amorphous area of value but a real one nonetheless. When you buy a brand you are in fact purchasing an association with a concept, feeling, image, or status."

For many of the world’s wealthy individuals, acquiring luxury goods such as art, fine wine, and watches is a passion.

A rare painting, for example, does not generate cash flows, meaning its value is truly in the eye of the beholder.
