Lots to Crowe about!

February 20, 2018

Mark the date in your calendars,Hollywood superstar Russell Crowe is auctioning film props, costumes, memorabilia and “stuff” (quote). It is the “stuff” that I am particularly interested in, as this includes 29 luxury watches, apparently half of the lucky man’s collection! When and where? 7th April 2018, Sydney Sydney? Well, he is Australian. Anyway, if you can afford to bid for one of his watches, you can certainly afford a flight…

Rent a watch?

December 20, 2016

Watch rental is a new concept currently being operated by a Company called Eleven James in the United States. It is a membership club and they rent luxury watches to their customers. For a fee of $149 per month, they receive a new timepiece every quarter. Sounds like a good idea, but will this catch on in the UK? Take a look at the video, in which the CEO of Eleven James,…

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend…

October 4, 2016

…sounds better than ‘shiny sparkly crystals that look like diamonds but actually are not are a girl’s best friend’! Yes, we are talking crystals, but not any old crystal. Swarovski crystal no less! If the woman in your life is like my wife, she cannot pass the Swarovski store without at least stopping to look in the window. Seriously, it’s like watching a magpie. Her eyes literally light up! Having…

Watch does that mean?!

September 13, 2016

Tourbillon, Uni-directional rotating bezel, applique, tang buckle! What the hell am I talking about? Have you heard a term related to watches that you just don’t understand? Maybe you have heard somebody talking about their latest timepiece and you just nod and smile and pretend that you know what they are talking about. Well, chances are, they don’t know what they are talking about either and they are just repeating, parrot-fashion, what…

Celebrity Watch Watch: Tom Cruise

August 25, 2016

Which watch would a Hollywood star wear? No, not a tongue twister, but a genuine question. Not just a Hollywood star, though, oh no! A Hollywood superstar, no less. A real heavyweight, at least in terms of his bank balance! With an (estimated) fortune of a gazillion dollars, he can afford the very best that Switzerland has to offer. Not a Swiss watch – what’s that about, then?! Except that one…

Skeleton in the closet?!

August 19, 2016

Skeleton watches are all the rage at the moment – apparently! I say this because I have mixed feelings regarding this style of watch. What is a skeleton watch? With a skeleton watch, the mechanical movements have been stripped down to the bare bones and some or all of the moving parts are visible. This may be via the front or back of the watch, or through a small window within the dial….

Not just a pretty face!

August 12, 2016

Women and watches, my two favourite things in life! Well, one woman in particular, my wonderful wife. Not so when it comes to watches, though, as I find it impossible to stay faithful to one particular model, no matter how sexy it may be! There was a time (pun intended) when watch manufacturers were, to be brutally honest, condescending towards women. They figured that just adorning the watch with a…

Breitling – the sky’s the limit, or is it?!

July 26, 2016

Not content with manufacturing watches that are out this world, Breitling are literally going out of this world! The Breitling Jet Team Yes, Breitling have their very own aerobatic display team. How cool is that? Not just any old aerobatic display team, though. Oh no! It is the largest civilian aerobatics team in Europe no less. And they fly with the winged B proudly displayed. In keeping wth the brand,…

Celebrity Watch Watch – Obama

July 21, 2016

Our latest celebrity watch watch features the leader of the free world. Yes, Donald Trump. No, wait, strike that, he’s not in power (yet)! Besides, we all know that taste is one of many things that the Trumpster lacks in abundance! I am, of course, referring to the current (as I write) President of the United States, Mr Barrack Obama. What would the President wear? On his wrist, Mr. President…
