Not just a pretty face!

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…

Celebrity Watch Watch – Obama

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)!
