It is Time for a New Years Resolution.

The doorway to 2011 is just hairs breath away, and at midnight ,News Years Eve, be sure to have a New Years Resolution in hand. I am sure some of you have the "lose weight" or "find a new job" or "stop smoking" goal, which are all pretty admirable; however to accomplish these goals, one must have an overriding goal which will effect all facets of life.
I am talking Time Management.
Time Management is essential, if one wants to make good on personal promises. Time Management goes hand in hand with taking control. Instead of time marching off leaving one scrambling to keep up or merely being hurled along like a pebble in a current, one can capture and utilize time in a way which solidifies that moment forever. That moment you have captured becomes the first stepping stone to reach the next level.
For instance, set your alarm clock for 6am, get out of bed (no easy feat) and hop on the treadmill. By doing this you have taken control of that moment and laid down the foundation for the next day and the next, each time getting closer to reaching your goal - each moment in time marked for the next. New Years Resolutions ,if taken seriously, can be achieved with taking control of your Time.

At THE WATCHERY, we understand the importance of Time Management, and that is why we provide the ultimate tool for your journey. A Watch. Not any watch. A watch you can count on. A watch which is adapted to your needs, your style, your sense of purpose. A watch which embodies you, and becomes you. A Luxury Watch.

At THE WATCHERY, we sell top name brands, such as Cartier, Audemars Piguet, Concord, Breitlign, Tag Heuer, IWC, Baume & Mercier, JeanRichard, Ebel, Zenith, Hublot, Chopard, Blancpain and many many more, at hugely discounted prices. All watches are genuine, for the passage of time does not lie.
Take the first step in taking control of your time, of your life and purchase a Luxury Watch at THE WATCHERY.

Happy New Year!

2010 Brought Renewed Hope For the Luxury Watch Industry

2010 saw the slow but steady recovery of the watch industry. After a huge luxury industry nose dive in 2008 and the gut wrenching descent in 2009, the watch industry entered 2010 with much trepidation. However 2010 proved to bring a sigh of relief to many luxury watch companies with the reports of better earnings. Richemont Group who owns a portfolio of leading international brands such as Jaeger LeCoultre, Piaget, IWC, Baume & Mercier, Vacheron Constantin, Panerai, A Lange & Sohne & Roger Dubois, report a "very convincing six months" and a "strong sales growth". Swatch Group which owns Watch Brands including Breguet, Omega, Longines, Rado, Tissot, Hamilton, Tiffany & Co as well as ETA, a producer of mechanical and quartz watch movements claims a huge resurgence in sales. Bulgari reports "business is picking up, while Hermes reports an excellent first half year. Swiss watch exports show a vigorous recovery in the first half of 2010 as well as heightened confidence of the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry.

2010 saw a large amount of new luxury watch boutiques worldwide. Omega opened nine new boutiques in the United States alone, and Corum set up shop in china and opened the doors of its very first store in Switzerland. Raymond Weil opened three new stores in India. In 2010, both Ulysee Nardin and Richard Mille opened their first boutique stores in the US.

Although the watch industry, has still ways to go in terms of recovery, the prospects are very good indeed. Watch companies are being more conservative with research and development opting to reintroduce older successful collections rather than an entirely new line of watches. In addition, many watch companies have taken high end expensive watches and made them more affordable by using steel or ceramics rather than gold and diamonds. For example Breguet has taken its high end Reine de Naples timepiece for women, usually crafted in gold, lined with jewels and sporting a complication, and downsized it to more affordable steel version with no jewels and only the time on the dial. Breuget's elegance, craftsmanship and precision still remains whilst the luxury watch becomes more affordable.
Cartier ,as well, opted for utilizing cheaper materials such as steel and rubber for its Roadster Collection. The Roadster S is much more affordable with a definite mass appeal, which is exactly what the high end luxury watch companies need to survive. Mass appeal, that is, without damaging the integrity and quality of the watch brand. At a going rate of $4,600 for the steel version and $4,600 for the combo, this watch is much cheaper than the original Roadsters thereby enabling young aspiring individuals to own a watch worn by millionaires and noticed by all.
Luxury Watch Companies are looking to 2011 with a renewed vigor and hope, and just like the recovery from the Quartz Scare of the 1970's, they have survived.

Happy Holidays from THE WATCHERY

Gifts are nestled under trees carefully wrapped in shiny gift wrapping paper. The house is basked in a warm glow while the winter wind howls outside. Perched on top of a large rectangular box (which ,you are quite sure, contains that big screen T.V - Super Bowl here we come - you mentioned to your wife many many times), is a small box. Within the small box, however, contains a gift which will last a lifetime. This gift will not be obsolete by newer models. This gift will not be hidden in the "utterly useless house hold objects drawer" where heart shape pancake molds and chirping key chains reside. This gift will be treasured and kept close at hand, for this gift is a luxury watch.
Upon opening the box, your loved ones face will be basked in a glow of pure destiny, as this watch will mark the passage of her time, every second of her day. Mayhap you gave her a 18k rose gold Cartier Tank, with hand picked diamonds along the sides of the bezel, or mayhap you gave her an Ebel Beluga radiating a gentle pink mother of pearl dial, or perhaps an exquisite Chopard Happy Sport Luxury Watch where diamonds dance above the dial between two sheets of scratch resistance sapphire crystal.
She will surely gasp, as she will lift the watch, oh so gently, from the box, and gaze up at you with wonder as she places it on her wrist. And on her wrist the watch will stay marking her the time as it passes from seconds to minutes; from minutes to hours, from hours to days, from days to weeks, from weeks to months, and from months to years. From this day on until forever.

Happy Holidays from the WATCHERY.

Moon Phase Watches at THE WATCHERY

At 3am Tuesday morning as I was staring up at the rare lunar eclipse , it occurred to me the extent to which humanity is transfixed with the moon. Although one may not always be consciously aware of it, one expect to see the moon in its various stages of waxing and waning hovering above us in the nights sky. Looking up at the strange burnt orange hue of moon, I suddenly realized the novelty of wearing a watch with the moon phase complication. A complication which mirrors the happenings in the heavens above. IWC
Grande Complication Perpetual Calendar IW927020

THE WATCHERY PRICE $238,500 Save 25%

A moon phase complication depicts the varying phases of the moon: New Moon, first quarter, full moon and last quarter. A lovely example of a moon phase is at the 12 'o' clock position of the IWC Grande Complication Perpetual Calender. The case and bracelet of this luxury timepiece is crafted from platinum.

Below I will briefly describe the basics of the watch components of the moon phase. The phases of the moon are usually displayed on a disc visible via an aperture, or more rarely by a hand. A typical moon phase watch a disc portraying two moons is driven by a wheel with 59 teeth. Every 24 hours a finger turns the wheel by one notch. In reality a lunation lasts 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.8 seconds or 29.53 days; however, the lunation displayed by an ordinary moon phase watch lasts 29.5 days thus the moon phase depicted on the watch is out one day every 2 years, 7 months and approximately 20 days. Astronomical moon phase watches compensate for this difference by utilizing a wheel with 135 teeth, thus achieving a lunation of 29 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes. This reduces the difference to just one day every 122 years.
Many watch companies invent new ways of depicting the moon phase. The De Buthune DB25 Moon Phase Watch reveals a spherical moon phase below the 12 'o' clock. Consisting of two hemispheres, one in steel and the other in platinum, rotates on its own axis.
You may have noticed most moon phase complications adorn the dials of men's watches; however, true to Girard-Perregaux's Cat's Eye Movement Collection which adds complications to women's watches, a gorgeous moon phase luxury watch accompanied by the signs of the zodiac mark the waxing and waning of the moon. (Click here for more info about Girard-Perregaux's Cat's Eye Movement Collection)

Moon phase Watches are available at THE WATCHERY

Fortis Hits THE WATCHERY and Sets Sight on Mars

647.28.13.L.13 B-42 Black Mars 500 Black Dial leather Men's Watch 647-28-13-L-13

Fortis Watches are bold time tellers surrounded by an air of adventure - an adventure into space. Fortis is looking to the future when one day man will voyage to the Red Planet and discover a world beyond the scope of our wildest imagination. Fortis Watches are preparing for the day when man will step onto Mars. An unprecedented expedition is currently underway in a Research facility near Moscow. The objective is to simulate the voyage to the Red Planet. The expedition is called Mars 500, which entails 520 days of complete isolation in an artificial habitat constructed according the the real dimensions of the actual space ship. In addition, the facility contains storage rooms, a green house, lab and a stimulation of the surface of Mars.
This experiment is a joined effort with the European Space Agency ESA and the Russian Space Agency ROSCOSMOS.
Fortis is the official supplier of timepieces for MARS 500. The crew members are given a MARS 500 timepiece as their official timekeeper of this mission. Since the 1990's, Fortis automatic timepieces have proved their reliability in weightlessness by accompanying many astronauts on space missions. As the hatchway of Project MARS 500 closes, and the crew is locked from the outside world in complete isolation, a Fortis automatic timepiece tracks the time with extreme reliability and precision. To commemorate this monumental project, Fortis has issued a limited edition of 2012 FORTIS B-42 BLACK MARS 500 watches.

Purchase your FORTIS B-42 BLACK MARS 500 and be part of history in the making.

Corum's Admiral Cup Collection at THE WATCHERY

The Watchery has a large selection of great watch buys for the holidays with rock bottom prices.

A personal favorite of mine is Corum's Admiral Cup Collection. Back in 2008, I blogged about the remarkable popularity of this particular collection - see post; and since then Corum's Admiral Cup popularity has soared even higher. I am sure you may wonder from whence came the name?

The Admiral's Cup is an international yachting regatta occurring every odd year. It was organized in 1957 by the Royal Ocean Racing Club based at Cowes, on the Isle of Wright in England. In 2003 the Reggatta was held in Australia between different yacht clubs. 2003 was the last race; although, there is some talk in the works for 2011.

Corum's name is derived from the word “quorum” which means “the minimum number of persons present, required to enable a meeting, to hold discussions and take valid decisions”.

Looking at the dial of a Admiral Cup Luxury Watch, visible are 12 nautical flags just beyond the bezel and above minute indexes. Admiral Cup Luxury Watch have no hour markers, baring rather minutes scaled in 5 minute increments. Corum's signature key on the seconds hand counter-weight unlocks the future with each passing second.

Corum Admiral Cup Luxury Watches are a great pick for the Holidays. Buy a Luxury Watch at The Watchery for Unbeatable Low Prices.
