    Closer Look at the Hamilton Jazzmaster

    Hamilton is the ultimate wristwatch company — having the American passion and the Swiss precision in the bag. Their timepieces like the Hamilton Jazzmaster brings the best of both worlds; showcasing their dedication with the consistent need for improvement, be it with the designs or their company as a whole. Stabilizing its roots in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the later decades of the nineteenth century, the company stood its ground on the same spot for over a century. Here, the designers and the production department produced pocket watches, railroad, and aviation watches. They had their principles set from the very beginning. Hamilton watches stood firm on their ground and focused on quality and accuracy. This principle and work ethic helped them move to international grounds and become an A-lister brand. Hamilton’s Shift – the Process  After a century of working within American boundaries, Hamilton decided to expand its wings and wet their hands in international waters. Therefore, they merged with Swatch Group and moved to the heart of all watchmaking — Switzerland. This move helped Hamilton get that all-too-important seal of ‘Swiss made’ on its timepiece. Though the company went through unprecedented changes, both physical and artistic, it did not affect their designs and quality of products. Keeping the par high and moving into Hollywood For centuries, Hamilton watches have been known to produce the best of the best wristwatches. It has done a great job with such auspicious consistency that it caught the eyes of Hollywood A-listers. Hamilton has been the go-to wristwatch for Hollywood actors and actresses. The timepiece has been worn by a number of celebrities in more than five hundred major, high-budget movies. The wristwatch is privileged enough to make appearances in movies such as Men in Black (the original), Independence Day, Die Hard, The Talented Mr. Ripley. And more recently in The Martian and Interstellar – where the timepiece played a crucial role in the plot of the movie. Hamilton Jazzmaster Hamilton Jazzmaster is the best of both worlds. It retained its original, simplistic, retro charm while combining the rusty scenic theme with a more contemporary and modern twist. Though Hamilton has been known to have a number of intricate, luxurious, sporty, formal, and every other kind of design under its belt. Hamilton Jazzmaster has been the top of every Hamilton watches list for a significant number of times. Drawing in the crowd while satiating the allure of older and much more loyal customers; quality before quantity is the hallmark of Hamilton watches. Below are some of the top choices when it comes to Hamilton watches: 1: Hamilton Men’s Jazzmaster Thinline With a big dial, however, as the name suggests, the wristwatch is rather on the petite side. The simple yet elegant dial has a minimalistic quality to it. The 42mm dial houses Arabic numerals as hour markers. The refreshing aspect of the timepiece comes in the form of the date window, which is placed at 6 o’ clock rather than the usual 3. Though the timepiece does not come cheap, it is not as ridiculously priced as one would expect. With a stainless steel body case, blue dial, and sapphire crystal window – this particular Hamilton model has everything a classic wristwatch fan’s heart would ache for. 2: Hamilton Men’s Jazzmaster Open Heart The one Hamilton Jazzmaster which was meant to stand out is this one. With the most peculiar and innovative design, Hamilton Jazzmaster Open Heart is the one which would be the head turner in any event. The state-of-the-art timepiece has a distinct skeletal cut out right where a heart would be in a human body. The idea behind is to bare out the most important yet vulnerable part of the timepiece for all to see. The cut-out will show the intricate ticks of the timepiece and how it all works. The mere movement can leave one spell-bound. The water-resistant (up to 50m) watch has different band options for everyone. It also has an anti-reflective sapphire window – as if we needed something else to further fall in love with the timepiece. 3: Hamilton Jazzmaster Slim Petite Seconde This timepiece is made for those who have a slightly wider wrist and like to have a timepiece that covers their entire wrist. This particular model/design screams subtle luxury and formal occasions. This model offers two designs; one where the dial house a sub seconds’ dial and the date display is at 3 o’ clock. If you’re not a fan of subdials, then you can opt for another design. Conclusion No matter which design you opt to choose from Hamilton, it will be an excellent addition to your collection. However, having a Hamilton Jazzmaster will definitely be a safe but fancy addition and a classic collection.

  3. Luxury Watches: Is Expensive Always Better?

    Luxury Watches: Is Expensive Always Better?

    When it comes to purchasing a watch, there are endless options. Not only are they available in a variety of sizes, designs, and colors, you can also purchase one according to your budget. But, the question really is, should you invest in luxury watches or just buy an ordinary, inexpensive one? Honestly, when it comes to watches, renowned brands almost never fail. A watch that has been crafted with attention and care is bound to work better. Watch Crafting Craftsmanship is definitely what creates the major difference between a luxury watch and an ordinary watch. The watch is designed with love and care with attention to detail. Moreover, luxury watches like Rolex, Patek Philippe, and Vacheron Constantin aren’t created by amateurs, but by artisans who are extremely skilled at what they do. Years of training and experience help create the perfect piece. In comparison, there are way more ordinary watches made. And sometimes that can lack the finesse of luxury watches. Ordinary watches can also have defects since they are produced by machines. People who love handcrafted things more than machine produced stuff are bound to fall in love with luxury watches. Each piece is created separately, and precision and beauty are, therefore, the end results. When compared, a luxury watch will prove to be more robust, long-lasting and perfect in every way. Watch Mechanism The mechanism that runs any watch is one of the most important things to consider. It is impossible for any equipment to last long or work efficiently if any of its components malfunction or aren’t up to mark. The quality of a watch can easily be determined by deducing whether it runs on a quartz crystal or has a mechanical operation. Cheaper watches tell time using a quartz crystal while more expensive watches use the mechanical operation that is either winding or automatic. This is because the creation of a mechanical design requires more time and patience as there are many tiny parts involved. These need to be placed precisely for the watch to function accurately. Moreover, it also requires intricacy, accuracy, and attention to detail. However, quartz watches tell time more accurately and last a couple of years. Watch Parts The quality of the parts used in building a watch is exactly what makes a watch a luxury watch or an ordinary watch. There is a big difference between the kinds of material used in watches. A luxury watch is made is made of pure leather, crystal dials, crystal embellishments and even precious metals. Overall, these expensive materials make the watches not only better-looking but also robust and long-lasting. The crystal dials in luxury watches are break-resistant as compared to regular glass dials. Real crystals and precious metals give luxury watches an undeniably gorgeous look. Watch Quality As discussed above, a luxury watch simply has better quality due to all the time and effort put into its creation. In addition, a luxury watch is safe from having defects like ordinary watches. Not only do they last longer, are heavier and more robust; they also have high finesse, perfect alignment, and excellent bodies. In comparison, an ordinary watch is fragile, may have a light body and defects in its part alignment. The edges of ordinary watches may also be sharp and unfinished. A luxury watch does not have these issues as each watch is created and inspected separately. Hand finishing is another thing that makes luxury watches even more valuable. Hand-finishing results in non-reflective dials, gorgeous beveling, engraving, and enameling, something that ordinary watches fail to offer. Watch Aesthetics Both kinds of watches are available in a bunch of designs and colors, but the sparkle and beauty of luxury watches cannot be denied. A luxury watch fits the descriptions of stylish, elegant and sophisticated. Moreover, the brand name also acts as a separate embellishment. A luxury watch also, usually, has added features such as a calendar which further add to its beauty and usefulness. Extra Features Luxury watches have extra features that ordinary watches lack. This is also why luxury watches are obviously more expensive. These features include being water and shock resistant which only makes them last longer. These also attract all types of customers such as athletes and even scuba divers. Scratchproof and break-proof dials keep the watch looking new, bold and gorgeous. In fact, it is suitable for careless individuals or those involved in some kind of heavy duty work. Screw down crowns, luminous hands, and markers make luxury watches even better. Final Verdict No matter how you look at it, luxury watches are likely better than ordinary watches in numerous ways. If you’re willing to invest slightly more, you can wear a gorgeous piece of craftsmanship that is only bound to upgrade your caliber. Think about the number of regular watches you’ll need to buy just because they aren’t as durable. If assessed carefully, although expensive, a luxury watch is an excellent thing to invest in. Moreover, a luxury watch actually has a resale value, unlike ordinary watches. It can be resold due to its high quality and brand name.

  4. Top American Watch Brands

    Top American Watch Brands

    Switzerland and America used to share the throne way back before World War II hit. During the war, the wristwatches factories were used to manufacture weapons and other requirements of the soldiers; all except for one — Hamilton. Also while all this was happening, American watch brands lagged behind, which hurt its finances hard. However, during recent years, though a number of people still believe Switzerland to be the haven of all wristwatches, American watch brands have been creeping their way up and slowly reclaiming the mantle. In the last decade or so, America has reclaimed the hearts of its citizens when it comes to wristwatches.  Top American Watch Brands 1: Hamilton Hamilton is one of the OG of wristwatch companies in America; the one who waged war through the Second World War and stood its ground. Though the cover says ‘Swiss made’ on top and all of its parts are made in Bienne, the quintessential part of the matter is that Hamilton’s roots are dug deep into the heart of America. Born in Pennsylvania, Hamilton was once worn by Elvis Presley in Blue Hawaii. 2: Timex Timex‘s first brick was laid way back in 1941 when a Norwegian by the name Thomas Olsen bought a run-down company of wristwatches named, ‘The Waterbury Clock Company’ in Connecticut. His initial plan was to start the production of cheap wrist watches whose purpose was just to replace and not be long-lasting. As the country had just faced the Second World War, therefore, the economy was extremely unforgiving. Photo from timex official website However, much to his surprise, his wristwatches took off. As they were available to the mango people who could buy them from anywhere, from tobacconists to drugstores, the timepieces were a huge hit. They told time and it was not so hefty on the wallet as well. Even today, Timex produces affordable, accurate time telling wristwatches with a slight sense of fashion. 3: Hager Back in 2009 at Hagerstown, Maryland, a company was found with a dream of creating the most classic, accurate, artistic, and innovative timepieces of the world in affordable prices that were supposed to be long-lasting. As the company is determined to keep the process in budget of a normal American family, Hager has partnered with Switzerland, China, and Japan. Photo from Hager official website Though the parts are imported, each component is put-together by hand in a shop in Maryland. The team is small, therefore, if you want to buy a piece from Hager, you would have to be extremely patient. 4: Weiss A fairly new structure considering its predecessors, Weiss was found in 2013 by Cameron Weiss in Los Angeles. Weiss is one of the remaining few companies who pride in using all American made parts in their wristwatches. From cases and spring bar tools, to straps and all of the remaining packaging, everything that makes up this watch brand are finished by hand in Los Angeles. This company is day-by-day striving to make America the center for all manufacturing regarding timepieces, and bring the business back home. 5: RGM Perhaps the only company on the list that can give all the Swiss-based companies a run for their money is RGM. RGM is named after its founder, Roland G. Murphy. Founded in 1992, RGM is located in Pennsylvania. The company is responsible for creating every piece on its own with zero import. RGM also has a policy for making a total number of five hundred wristwatches annually. They take pre-orders and, therefore, the experience of wearing an RGM is about as special as special can be. 6: Devon Led by creative director, designer, and conceptual artist Scott Devon, the company is based in Los Angeles, California. If one is to describe a Devon timepiece, they might say it’s sort of Frankenstein in design. The design looks as if a scientist has been given all the luxuries in the world.  The parts of the Devon are all made in the United States.  7: Vortic A company set by a couple of college-going students by the names of RT Custer and Tyler Wolfe, the basics of Vortic was set in the dorm rooms of the Pennsylvania State University. The Vortic is a hybrid of the old and the new. It retains the functionality of the ancient pocket-watches and utilizes the new 3D printing technology to maintain the attraction of the old folks and to capture the hearts of the millennials all in one swoop. The company has successfully preserved the aura of both the style of the timepiece. This brand remains patriotic as well; all the timepieces utilized in its production are made within the borders of the United States.

  5. Why Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is a Great Choice

    Why Blancpain Fifty Fathoms is a Great Choice

    In the era of modern diving watches, there’s a huge and endless collection of exquisite and attractive pieces to fit every taste. Whether you choose a modern-styled watch or you get your hands on the futuristic pieces, the market is full of options. However, even in the realm of plentiful watches, a brand like Blancpain has something special to offer. Their Blancpain Fifty Fathoms collection stands apart. History of Blancpain Fifty Fathoms Jehan-Jacques Blancpain perceived the potential in watchmaking, a completely new business activity. Since the foundation of Blancpain in 1735, their watches enjoyed great success from the earliest years. The heirs of the Blancpain perpetuated his expertise. Blancpain Fifty Fathoms collection epitomizes Blancpain’s passion and zeal for the underwater world. It was originally expressed with the creation of first modern diver’s watch in 1953. Developed with French Military divers, Bod Malobier and Claude Riffaud required a rugged and functional watch for their precarious mission. A Great Choice The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms, as a watch itself and also the entire collection, is one of the most iconic watches. This modern version of the timepiece is the worthy descendant of the legendary ancestral watches ever created. The brand has unveiled many versions, but all the Fifty Fathoms models feature the main signature elements. They Offer Variety Since its launch, the Fifty Fathoms comes in series with a lot of variety. However, at the core of this diversified series sits the ref. 5015. Reference 5015 is the 45mm Fifty Fathoms Automatique model which hosts a steel case with a black dial. Although it was beautiful, it may seem to lack the toughness of a tool-watch. The problem was solved by introducing a new titanium variant of the ref. 5015. Titanium alloy is known for its various characteristics like its hard texture. The impact resistant and the corrosion resistant are great features too. Being strong and rust-proof, the titanium is ideal for field watches and divers. Easy to Wear Despite the 45mm diameter, titanium also means greater comfort. As titanium is about twice less dense than steel, the low-density properties of titanium give it a lighter texture. Thus, the main advantage of titanium helps the Fifty Fathoms to retain the characteristic large diameter while reducing the burden on the wearer’s wrist. The ‘burden reduction’ receives high respect and praise of divers as they have to carry a lot of sports equipment during the dive. The Fifty Fathoms is appreciated by modern white-collar workers as well. The lightweight watch meets the demands of everyday wear, making it undoubtedly a suitable choice. Water Resistant The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms watch has been favored by professional divers since its launch. It has also won the confidence of scuba divers worldwide. Being a timepiece with a 45mm titanium case, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms watch is water resistant. It is water resistant to 300 meters. Improved Visibility Apart from extraordinary technical achievements, the latest additions to the series are a great tribute to pioneers as well. The modern Fifty Fathoms series has made scuba diving easier by improving the visibility of watches under any circumstances. The Super-LumiNova luminous coating covers the front ring scale, dial hour scale, and hands. It gives a sharp contrast with the black dial with solar radiation texture. The filling of Super-LumiNova provides effortless legibility, thus making it easier to glance at the watch even in the murkiest waters. Unobstructed Movement The sapphire glass on the back offers an impeded view of the famous Blancpain caliber 1315 operations. This modern movement with automatic winding is 30.60mm in diameter and 5.65m thick. Being equipped with three high-performance barrels coupled in series, the caliber 1315 is able to provide a robust power reserve up to 5 days or 120 hours. The silicon hairspring is non-magnetic and shock-resistant, thus it is undisturbed by the magnetic field. Timeless Beauty Blancpain Fifty Fathoms follows the purest tradition of watchmaking craftsmanship. Additionally, a variety of decorative techniques such as solar radiation, spiral radiation, fish scale pearl, and ring satin highlight the unique beauty of the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms series. Last but not least, the dark grey color of Fifty Fathoms makes it a stylish daily-beater. A Statement of Luxury The Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has many signature elements in common with, and also distinct from its vintage predecessors. It is moving towards being a more luxurious watch which is evident in both the finishing and the price. For more than 60 years, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms has become a benchmark for the entire industry. The brand uses innovative materials and new technical solutions to push the limits of its timepieces and to fulfill the most sophisticated demands.

  7. Finding the Best Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

    Finding the Best Pre-Owned Rolex Watches

    A watch symbolizes time a lot more than a smartphone does. Getting accuracy in a watch (that costs thousands of dollars) is important of course. But it’s also pretty much guaranteed because these timepieces are produced by the world’s finest watchmakers. The qualities to look for when choosing a luxury watch primarily include appearance, functionality, and prestige. Usually, features and extras are the least important things of a luxury watch. Instead, the brand and price are the two vital things that really determine the true value of each of these luxury watches. Rolex watches – the best you can get Rolex is one of the topmost luxury brands for watches. When it comes to luxury watches, purchasing a pre-owned Rolex makes a whole lot of sense, if you go about it the right way. Especially with timeless and iconic designs that haven’t changed much over the years, there is no shame attached to older pieces. In fact, they may even be more desirable – besides they save up loads of your money. However, it’s not really something you want to go into unprepared as it can be risky and might have some drawbacks as well. Here are the 9 things you need to know before purchasing a pre-owned Rolex (or any luxury, for that matter) watch: 1: Pre-owned watches are either vintage, contemporary or discontinued Vintage timepieces are usually at least 30 years old. Contemporary watches, however, are the current watch models that are available with authorized retailers. Discontinued watch models include watches that are no longer sold by the brand. No matter which watches you opt for, purchasing a pre-owned watch holds much more value than buying at retail and the value of the watch might even escalate over time. 2: Service is essential Like any other pricey imported item, a high-end luxury Rolex watch needs to be looked after and must be serviced from time to time. Any mechanical watch, whether it is vintage or modern, needs occasional maintenance and service by a certified watchmaker so that it functions properly and has a long life. Your watch can last for generations if taken care of properly. If you’re willing to spend thousands on a watch of high caliber, you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff. 3: Take advantage of good credit If you have good credit, you could go for a low-interest rate. What that would mean is it may not cost a lot to pay for the watch you want over time. This can be a great way to buy the more expensive timepiece you really want to own but can’t afford to pay for all at once. 4: Be aware of replicas  One major problem arises when replicas get better and better and only highly trained watchmakers and experts can differentiate between original and fake. What’s inside the watch matters as well; even if the case is genuine, the movement can be dodgy. With Rolex, to be specific, many watches have had parts replaced with parts that are not authentic over the years or even movement parts that are not the right ones. Only a good experienced watchmaker can ensure authenticity. If the authenticity of the watch isn’t guaranteed and backed by a refund from a reputable dealer, then don’t take the risk at all. 5: Have all the information You must ask the right questions when looking into a pre-owned Rolex. Does the watch retain its original manufacturer finish? Has it been adequately polished? Does it keep possession of all of its original and correct manufacturer parts such as bezel, crown, clasp, etc.? Pieces that check all these boxes are much better to invest in and are less likely to let you in for an unpleasant surprise down the line. But again, you must decide what matters most to you and what price you are willing to pay. 6: Know the original price Check retail prices for new pieces to see how much you are saving and not just handing your credit card over at a retail boutique. Like a brand new car, a brand new watch decreases in value the second you take it home. But a pre-owned Rolex has already been decreased in value to the near maximum by the time you buy it. Knowing the correct market value is extremely important. This way, you can be sure you’re not paying extra and are getting yourself a good deal. 7: The price can go up at any time! The value of most pre-owned Rolexes for will definitely go up. It totally depends on trends in the market, auction results, and what the brand is currently offering. An example includes when Rolex revealed the magnified date lens on the new version of the Sea-Dweller. Since then, there’s been a rise in demand for discontinued Sea-Dweller models without the lens. 8: Try getting the original documents Consider paying more for a timepiece when it comes with its original box and papers. Though a watch that comes with a certificate of authenticity from a highly regarded dealer doesn’t necessarily need them. Usually, watches with their original boxes and papers will have more worth and retain their value better. But if it’s a piece you just plan on using and not reselling, the alteration in price may not be worth it. You need to make sure that the watch is in excellent condition. 9: Be careful with vintage watches Vintage watches are not as durable, dependable or worry-free as contemporary or discontinued models. Vintage pieces, even sturdy sports watches, are more fragile and this is more applicable when the watch is older. For a majority of people, the appeal of a vintage piece takes precedence over these negative concerns. But you must keep in mind that you shouldn’t go swimming with it on!

  9. Monochrome Watches: What Are They?

    Monochrome Watches: What Are They?

    Monochrome generally refers to any object opposed to a pair of colors, or a set of multiple colors. Mono means one, single, or sole. Be it a monochrome computer display, a monochrome painting, or a monochrome photograph — each of them tends to have a single shade. Monochrome watches are widely popular. Typical monochrome watches come in black/white or grey/silver color. To elucidate it further, some monochrome watches carry a traditional color combination of black and white while some seem to be flaunting a rigid grayscale look. Monochrome Watches: True or False? Nevertheless, classic monochrome watches are presented in silver, grey, black, and white. That being the case, are we supposed to believe that monochrome watches are colorless watches? Actually, there is an ongoing debate about whether or not black and white are colors. According to a reasonable number of citations, black and white are ousted from the color family though, it is a situation of unresolved conflict. Ask a physicist and his opinion will be, ‘’Black is not a color, white is.’’ Ask an artist with crayons, and you will get to hear, ‘’White is not a color, black is.’’ Identifying Colors: Colors exist as light: If this theory is to be believed, white is a color while black is not sure to be a color.Colors exist as pigments or molecular coloring agents: If this theory is to be believed, black is surely a color, but white is not guaranteed to be a color. So, there is ambiguity with respect to this question. There are various opinions within the society; one does not seem to dominate the other. Simultaneously, there are diverging theories on this issue, and none of them confirms the inclusion of both in the color family. Are They Necessarily Black/White and Grayscale? There are many monochrome watches market-wide that are not typically black or white or grayscale. Yet, as per the definition, they are rightly considered as monochrome timepieces. In simpler words, any watch having its entire body (including strap, round case, dial, back-case, buckle) colored in single guise is a monochrome watch in essence. For instance, Sepia-toned watches are one fine example of atypical monochrome watches. Sepia simply means a fusion of red and brown color. These watches are often designed for both genders, condoning to equality. Sepia has been the soberest color, often liked by moderates. Who Loves A Monochrome? Watch enthusiasts who love sticking to a minimalist design are fascinated by these watches. These watches don’t have much to offer to those who look around for extraordinary colors and fantastic designs. Monochrome watches are meant to provide you a basic and elegant look. Anyone who wants a casual or sporty watch with a mono-faceted look will become a fan of these monochrome watches. People who are not excited to pull-off timepieces with an over-the-top look are certainly the right ones for this kind. These watches are meant to facilitate watch fanatics wanting to have something just up to par, and nothing excessively appealing.
