Who Doesn’t Love a Gold Watch?

Frederique Constant Classics Business Timer

A gold watch is judged by an entirely different set of rules than that of other watches. A gold watch demonstrates success and achievement. Today, a gold watch is the embodiment of modern luxury and contemporary tastes. Take the Frederique Constant Classics Business Timer, an affordable golden timepiece that just reeks of style and sophistication. Most effective, as it so happens, when gilded. The Bulova 97A121 is another example of where gold elevates a timepiece. This one – a …

Up Close & Personal With Seiko

Seiko Prospex Solar World Time Dial

The Seiko I’ve chosen for the featured image is the SSC509 Prospex Solar World Time, and after two weeks, it’s time for me to send it back to Certified Watch Store (I’ve had it on loan). As much as I’m going to miss the sound of the integrated alarm wailing for 20 seconds every night at 6:52 pm, I suppose all good things must come to an end. Besides, it’s someone else’s turn to “enjoy” …

Brand Feature: Armand Nicolet

Armand Nicolet M02 Complete Calendar

With thanks to my contact at Armand Nicolet, Bobak Sabzevari, who worked closely with me to make this article happen. As a boutique firm, their presence is much smaller than the national heavyweights – the Omega’s and Rolex’s of the world – but their small size is an essential part of their charm. Rolex produces an estimated 4,000 watches per day and employs nearly 5,000 people, whereas Armand Nicolet will produce around 6,500 watches annually …

Thursday Night Shoot With the Frederique Constant Slimline Classics

Frederique Constant Slimline Classics Automatic

It’s Thursday night and I’m wrapping up my review, photoshoot, and video shoot (lol) for the Frederique Constant Slimline review that went live on WYCA on the 7th. I’ll be shipping the Slimline back to Certified Watch Store early next week- on to a new home soon, no doubt. Back in 2013, Justin from Gem by Carati loaned me a Tissot Le Locle to review. It was one of the first Swiss automatics I had …

Macro Photography Monday w/ the Mileneal Classic

Mileneal Classic Rose Gold & White

I recently reviewed the Mileneal Classic on WYCA and was quite impressed with it. The quality of the finishing on the case and hands is superior to many other rose gold watches I’ve reviewed, and considering its sub-$100 MSRP, the finishing quality is quite telling. The Mileneal is a well-made watch indeed. Something being made well shouldn’t be a differentiator. All brands should be made well. Why would you want to put your name on …

Mechanical Movement Macro, Pt. I

Tissot Chemin Des Tourelles Squelette Skeleton Watch Movement - Macro

A mechanical movement is a prime candidate for macro photography. Because a watch is so thin, it’s easy to overlook how deep a watch movement really is. But, with a macro lens and some time to kill, you can showcase the depth of the modern mechanical movement. The first watch I ever got with an exposed caseback was a Lucien Piccard automatic. The next, which remains my favourite to this day, was the 2013 Hamilton …

Tissot Chemin Des Tourelles Squelette

Tissot Chemin Des Tourelles Squelette Skeleton Watch

Tissot’s gorgeous Chemin Des Tourelles Squelette is powered by a Swiss-made mechanical, the ETA 6497-1. Tissot has tastefully decorated the dial and movement with fine machining and excellent workmanship. It’s a stunning example of tasteful design that enjoys added excitement from its skeleton motif.

Swatch Irony Body & Soul

Swatch Irony "Body & Soul" YAS100G

The Swatch Irony “Body & Soul” YAS100G is an affordable Skeleton watch powered by an Automatic movement. A sister watch, called the “Uncle Charly” YAS112G, is available that utilizes the same movement and dimensions. I reviewed the Body & Soul on WYCA in August 2017.

How to Take a Great Photo of a Skeleton Watch Using a DSLR

Tissot Chemin Des Tourelles Squelette Skeleton Watch

Taking pics of skeleton watches is easily one of my favourite pastimes. A mechanical watch is almost always a thing of beauty, and with the right eye (and gear), you can capture some incredible images.

In my first ever post on WristWatch.Photography I am stoked to showcase the excellent and beautiful Tissot Chemin Des Tourelles Squelette, which is perhaps one of the most entertaining watches I’ve come across to shoot.
