Watches and Beyond Presents: A Case for the Wristwatch

22852977 - glasses with champagne against fireworks and clock close to midnight

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.

 

Our Top 10 Iconic Watch Ambassadors

63762721 - russia - october 11, 2016: the beatles logoThere’s some buzz in the horology world… Gucci has just asked Florence Welch, the 30-year-old English lead singer of “Florence and the Machine” to sponsor their watches. Some eyebrows have been raised over the unorthodox choice…what propelled the luxury brand to feature Florence as the face of their company?

According to Alessandro Michele, creative director at Gucci, her music “in many ways evokes the spirit of Gucci”. Florence is now the official Muse of the Italian company, and with that power comes one great responsibility: to wear their brand as often as possible, and look amazing doing it.

Here are some other famous watch brand – celebrity collaborations that have become as iconic as the watch designs themselves:

Kate Winslet for Longines

David Beckham for Breitling

Amanda Seyfried for Movado

Gwyneth Paltrow for Frederique Constant

Don Johnson for Ebel

Elle Fanning for Tiffany and Co.

Lebron James for Audemars Piguet

Charlize Theron for Christian Dior

Sir Richard Branson for Bulova

Katy Perry for Ice-Watch

The Beatles for Raymond Weil

That last one surprise you? Despite the fact that no Beatle was ever (or will ever be) seen wearing a Raymond Weil, the brand has announced a Maestro inspired by the hit band that rocked your parent’s prom night. This exclusive watch features the Beatles logo at 3 o’clock and the band’s thirteen album titles engraved around the bespoke dial. Every Maestro Beatles timepiece issued will also feature an engraved limited edition number.

You don’t have to be an A-List celebrity to enjoy these iconic watch brand superstars. Check out our collection of discount luxury watches, available right now on our site!

Taking Care of Your Watch

longines

When you buy a watch, you are beginning a relationship with a brand new addition to your collection of valuables. Not simply a timepiece, a watch is defines your unique style and becomes an extension of you that can last over an entire lifespan. This is why it is important to take care of your watch and maintain it well over the years.

One thing you must know about keeping your watch in good shape is that you have to clean it often. Give it a good wipe down every night to prevent rust build up from sweat and dirt that has accumulated during an entire day of wear. Aside from a daily cleaning, be sure to give your watch a full yearly cleaning at a jewelry store to get all the spots you would miss from a cleaning that you’ve done on your own. A professional jeweler will have the ability to take out smaller, harder to reach pieces of the watch that we wouldn’t advise you to take out on your own.

If you own a mechanical watch, another thing you can do to maintain your watch is to wind it daily. This is done to ensure that your watch is running smoothly. Turn the crown back and forth a few times until you feel a tightness or resistance. When your watch is fully wound, it will have a power reserve of 38 to 48 hours.

One thing to note about your watch is that it doesn’t do well in tropical, icy, or damp weather. When faced with these conditions, you may see condensation build up in the watch. One tip to remove this is to open the watch and lightly use a hairdryer to dry the works and the case. While the watch is open, you may even notice some dirt or debris inside. To clean this up, you can take an air can and quickly pump it over the watch.

With a stunning piece like a Longines watch or Raymond Weil Tango, you’ll want to make sure that you get the most out of your investment. Like all things in life, a watch is only as good as the care you put into it, so make your time piece look and feel as special as it was the day you bought it. You’ll be thanking yourself years later.
