Watches and Beyond Presents: A Case for the Wristwatch

We’re only a few days away from 2017!

So much is about to change… new president, new movies, new technologies…we can’t wait to see what the year will bring!

As we move further into this digital age, we couldn’t help but wonder: what with all these new developments, would people still cherish the “Good Ol Days?” Will they still wax nostalgic about gathering ‘round the TV to watch “Full House” when its sequel, “Fuller House”, is available to stream from the machine in your pocket, just 10 years later?

And then, of course, we thought about our magnificent watches.

Would our customers still marvel over an expertly crafted bezel? Gasp in delight at the bold, strong face of a Raymond Weil watch? Lovingly cherish a Patek Philippe for the next generation when they can just as easily glance at their phone for the admittedly easier-to-read analog time?

And then we unanimously decided: Yes. Yes they will.

Timepieces are more than just a simple convenience. They are an embellishment, a statement, the gentleman’s accessory. They allow us to indulge in the simple joy of owning something magnificent, tangible, and all our own. To many, timepieces are as essential as shoes and socks, and you’ll never catch them without a sparkling Longines or Ulysse Nardin gold watch, because they enjoy the simple pleasure of that telltale glimmer on their wrist.

And those are who we’re proud to serve. The men and women who fully appreciate the delicate craftsmanship, the thoughtful design, the mysterious mechanics that lie within each of our timepieces. In other words, you.  18801830 - businessman checking time on his watch

So we’re only a few days away from 2017! And we know it’s going to be a great year. Because we’ll make it one.

Happy New Year from Watches and Beyond.
