  • Benefits of Buying a Pre-Owned vs. New Fine Watch

    May 11, 2016
    Searching for a watch can be a time-consuming endeavor. Style and color is an obvious concern, but perhaps the most important factor to consider is the price. Unless money is a non-issue, which is not the case for most people, you'll want to find the best quality at the most affordable price. Though some might hate to admit it, brand tends to be an important factor – and understandably so. Where watches are concerned, quality is nothing to sneeze at! Not only durability, but comfort and even style tend to come at an often unattainable cost. For instance, buying a $30,000 Rolex may not be feasible, but who says you can't enjoy the same amenities? If you have worn various watches across the price spectrum, you've probabl ...
  • How Luxury Watches Match Up Against the Rise of Smartwatches

    March 2, 2016
    Luxury watches, particularly Swiss-made watches, have been highly valued and highly sought after since the 16th century, but since the age of cell phones and computers, people generally don’t need them for telling time. Instead, they’ve become more of an investment and statement piece. In April 2015, Apple released its first Apple Watch. Smartwatches have been around for several years, with the first “smart” watch technology dating as far back as 1927, but the Apple Watch has blown the competition out of the water when it comes to sales. Will new technology replace luxury watches? Most horologists (a person skilled in the practice of measuring time) think not. Ariel Adams, founder of A Blog to Watch, suggests tha ...

  • A Brief History of Rolex Watches

    January 15, 2016
    When someone says “luxury watch,” many people immediately think “Rolex”… and for good reason. Since the company’s founding in 1905, Rolex has risen to the top of the luxury watch market by making timepieces of uncompromising quality and ability. Rolex was founded by Hans Wilsdorf in London. Only 24 years old at the time, Wilsdorf wanted to build a company that focused on luxury wristwatches at a time when wristwatches were nothing of the sort. Wilsdorf set his focus on making reliable, precise timekeeping wristwatches that could also be elegant accessories. The Rolex name came about a few years later when the brand was officially trademarked by Wilsdorf. In 1919, the company was moved to Geneva, Switzerland i ...

  • Real Rolex or a Cheap Imitation?

    September 23, 2015
    Rolex is one of the most recognizable watch brands in the world. These high value pieces can cost tens of thousands of dollars, both new and used. Because of this, counterfeit Rolex watches are in wide circulation and it can be difficult to tell the true Rolex watches from the cheap imitations. Here are a few ways to check and see if that pre-owned Rolex watch you’re considering buying is, in fact, authentic: 1. The Fluid Second Hand Inside a true Rolex watch, the second hand moves almost fluidly around the clock face, while the second hand in a counterfeit watch will stop or stutter on each of the seconds. 2. Inaudible Ticks Counterfeit Rolexes often have loud ticks, which is indicative of imperfect inner mechanisms. ...

  • Cleaning a Luxury Watch DIY

    September 7, 2015
    Even luxury timepieces need cleaning once in a while. Over time your watch can build up dirt and oil that may hinder the ideal shine your watch is capable of. In order to maintain your watch’s luster, consider having your watch professionally refurbished. However, if you want to postpone regular watch maintenance for a later date, a simple cleaning may be just what your watch needs. Pre-Cleaning Before cleaning your watch, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water. This will remove oils from your hands and ensure a more efficient cleaning. Make sure your watch is water resistant. Luxury watches, such as Rolex, normally are water resistant up to 330 feet. Before wetting your watch, make sure the winding crown of ...
