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. 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 …

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 …

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.
