Learning Lifestyle Photography With the Timex Waterbury

Timex Waterbury Classic in Rose Gold

I have lost the bug that a photographer needs to really be interested in their craft. As much as I love watch and macro photography, I’ve hit a point where the results are fairly predictable. I’m not the best out there, but I’m good enough for what I’m doing with it, and so the incentive to really push myself hasn’t been strong. The lack of updates on WW.P is a good example of that diminished passion. …

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.

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 …

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.
