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.

Every Alpina watch is designed, hand-assembled, and rigorously tested for quality assurance from their headquarters in the snowy mountains of Geneva. With styles available for both men and women, these sophisticated timepieces are a worthwhile addition to any wardrobe.  Here are three of our top picks.

Alpina Comtesse Sport Automatic Stainless Steel Women’s Strap Watch

The simplicity of this watch gives it a sleek and attractive impression and can be matched with both casual and more formal attire. The stainless steel face and genuine leather strap make this piece from Alpina a durable watch for active women.

Alpina 130 Heritage Pilot Chronograph Automatic Men’s Strap Watch

At first glance, this timepiece presents with a vintage look. Yet, the classic brown leather strap and polished stainless steel case are juxtaposed by the sharp and modern blue hand indicators, giving this watch a truly unique look. The watch can be worn casually or in a business setting.

Alpina Alpiner Automatic Two Tone Men’s Watch

The two tone brushed and polished gold tone and stainless steel case and bracelet exude class from this sophisticated timepiece. For some, gold watches are too bold a look. The Alpina Alpiner softens and illuminates the gold tones in the watch with the stainless steel that surrounds it. Perfect for formal and business occasions, this versatile piece can be matched elegantly with a variety of fabrics.

 

AL-525S4E3B

Inherent in the design of any Alpina watch is a sense of rustic adventure. This subtle but standard characteristic sets Alpina apart from other sports watch brands. The manufacture and design of these watches hold true to the long-standing tradition of high-caliber, hand-crafted Swiss watchmaking. To find the Alpina brand watch that suits you, browse the selection at Watches and Beyond.

The Meaning of a Gold Watch

Did you know that the color gold is associated with success, achievement and triumph? It sounds pretty accurate considering the feeling you may get from wearing a gold watch. There’s a luxurious feeling about it that gives an air of sophistication.

In some circles, people believe that wearing gold in itself brings about increased power, good health and success, but we know that it’s really how you feel that brings about these “superpowers.” Imagine how fashion has the ability to change us in that way. Just wearing something unique and beautiful can transform our mental image of how we feel about ourselves.

Watches and Beyond sells plenty of gold watches in a ton of different price ranges, but here are some that especially bring about that feeling of power.

L41917326

This Longines watch features a gold tone dial with gold tone hand indicators and black index hour markers with a surrounding set of diamonds. Not only does it give a sense of success, it also has a feel of elegance.

246-55-8-32

This masculine Ulysse Nardin features a black dial that stands out perfectly against the gold. This is a bold watch.

W69003Z2

Finally, this Cartier Ballon Bleu is a blend of masculinity and femininity, bold and soft. The black roman numerals give it a very business-like feel.

Going for the Gold

Golden. It’s a simple word with a surprising number of meanings – we know, we checked it up in the dictionary. Our search turned up the obvious meaning: made of gold. But it also turned up some other definitions, definitions people subconsciously associate with the sumptuous metal. Among them are “full of glowing vitality” and “full of happiness, prosperity, or vigor”. Golden connotes “destined for success” and “richly soft and smooth”. It’s no wonder gold-trimmed accessories are the mark of upscale designer brands. Wearing gold, be it in jewelry, handbags or watches, screams luxury and success. Want your appearance to communicate power? Choose one of the following gilded watches to do the talking for you.
