Why not a watch steeped in the tradition of watch making from a company which never manufactured a Quartz Watch, even in the deep dark days of the Quartz Scare. I am referring to a Blancpain ladies watch.
It is the color of this timepiece that caught my eye - an arresting blue shimmering like a swimming pool in the summers sun. Bold Arabic Numerals don the face as partially skelotonized hands indicate the time in traditional analog display. A bezel paved with 180 fine diamonds encircle the dial ,which is protected by scratch resistant Sapphire crystal. A superior movement ,never needing to be wound at the crown, but rather by the gentle swinging motion of ones arm,. The mechanical movement visible via a screw down sapphire crystal case back has a power reserve capability of 100 hours. A blue rubber strap merges tradition with advancement, utilizing the material of today and protecting the horological heritage of the past.

THE WATCHERY has a huge selection of ladies watches by highly reputable brand names such as Cartier, Concord,Baume & Mercier, Zenith, Perrelet, Eterna, Ebel, Corum, Edox & many many more.

Mark this Valentines Day with a timeless gift. Give your Valentine a Luxury Wristwatch from THE Watchery,

Geneva Time Exhibition 2011

Starting a day earlier then the SIHH is the Geneva Time Exhibition catering to mostly smaller innovative watch companies.

60 watch brands will be displaying their newest designs including technological advancements, unique creations and exceptional craftsmanship. Watch lovers, private collectors, and watch dealers will head to the Geneva Time Exhibition.

In addition, there will be quite a competition in place, the GTE SUPERWATCH 2011 Award. The award will be bestowed on an independent watch which displays a extreme technical innovation and craftsmanship, a time telling application quite unique to the watch making world, and supreme creativity. I am sure a intriguing take on a complication may be a plus. Six independent judges will award a single watch, and the prize... a free spot at GTE 2012 plus media coverage in Plaza Watch Magazines. A number of my favorite brands are exhibitors:

Alain Silberstein, the creator of fun colorful watches with iconic bold colored hands , will be displaying his latest works of art.

Some of the other participating brands include, Artya, Clerc, Delance, HD3, RGM Watch Company, Catena, Drakkar, Catorex, Bulova, B.R.M and Quinting - the makers of the first and unique transparent watch in the world (its components crafted from finely cut sapphire crystal).

The exhibition will last only a couple of days, but the lingering effects on all participating watch brands will last much much longer.

SIHH promotes luxury timepieces with exceptional craftsmanship,cutting edge technologically, aesthetic brilliance and the quest for perfection while nurturing the deep tradition of watch making.

Concord C1 Watches at THE WATCHERY

C1 Concord Watches are now available at THE WATCHERY for up to 40% off the MRSP.

Give your 2011 a powerful start by purchasing a Concord C1 timepiece. The Concord C1 exhibits a strength of character which cannot be missed.

At 44mm in diameter and 16.7 mm from front to back, this watch can hold its ground. Wear this beauty on your arm and add a whole lot of determination to your image. The combination of black rubber on bezel and silver tone stainless steel case and bracelet works perfectly to create the ultimate time telling machine. A scratch resistant Sapphire crystal protects the dial. A multi-leveled dial creates the impression of depth, and results is an easy to read display. The clear date cut-out at the 3-o-clock position frames the day of the month for quick reference.
A unique aspect of this watch, culminating from years of intense cutting-edge research, is the running seconds sub-dial at the 9 o'clock position, whereby the hand is stationary and the disc rotates.

In addition, this watch is specially designed with exceptional resilience to withstand sudden jarring movements. Certified as a chronometer by the COSC, the movement of this watch had to undergo rigorous testing to prove its worthiness. (Click here for an in depth explanation of the COSC).
In addition, the C1 has a transparent case back completely viewable via a sapphire crystal, thereby enabling one the opportunity to see the inner mechanical self-winding movement, pulsating at 28,800 vibrations per hour and providing 48-hour power reserve. The oscillating weight of the mechanism is finished in black rhodium for creating a dramatic contrast. It features a cut-out of the C1 logo silhouetted through a fine ribbed decorative pattern.

The Concord C1 depicted in this blog is a chronograph, which makes this watch ideal for sports.
A "Chronograph" is a timepiece fitted with an additional mechanism that may be set in motion by knobs to enable the measurement of the duration of an event. For track and field or car racing, this watch is a perfect companion, for after all, all races are a race against time in one way or another. Also water resistant to 200 meters, this watch makes the perfect sporting companion, and a fine everyday addition to ones wardrobe.

With the introduction of the C1 Watch Collection, Concord phased out its old timers like the popular Delirium and La Scala. I viewed this move with much trepidation, as I had grown accustomed to the well known Concord collections. However, since the introduction of the bold Concord C1 collections, I have seen the power of Concord's vision. A power that infiltrates into the very movement of each and every Concord C1 timepiece.

Concord C1 are available in many colors and material compositions. Click here to read about the most out-of- this world C1 masterpiece.

THE WATCHERY has a large Concord C1 collection available at reduced prices.
