At last year's Basel World Tag Heuer launched their covetable, one-of-a-kind Tag Heuer Formula 1 Lady Yin Yang. It is, by far, the most refined and luxurious TAG Heuer watch to date.

The spectacular Haute-Joaillerie women's watch is constructed from 136 grams of 18 carat white gold; the unique yin-yang dial is set with black diamonds for Yin, white diamonds for Yang. What's more, the 32mm case is set with dazzling baguette diamonds on the bezel and the bracelet. In addition, the Swiss watch manufacturer has created their iconic shield logo at 12 o'clock from those same baguette diamonds.

The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Lady Steel and Ceramic Yin-Yang Model is a tribute to Tag Heuer spokeswoman and tennis ace, Maria Sharapova, who has been the face of Tag Heuer for some time.

The Watchery counts Tag Heuer watches as one of their bestsellers, and carries a thorough selection for their consumers. Though we don't yet carry the Formula 1 Lady Steel and Ceramic Yin-Yang Model by Tag Heuer, we can't wait to see one soon.

Luxury watches and Top of The Line Cars: A marriage made in heaven

There has been an age-old relationship between luxury watches and cars. They both strive for perfection. Lovers of one tend to be fans of the other, and of course there are similarities in their construction, too. A watch movement, is, for example, akin to a car's engine; the watch case to a chassis. In addition, both watches and cars are judges not just on their design but also their performance. What's more, many watches have see-through backs which is probably for the same reason that so too do Ferrari's V8s and Lamorghini's V10s, whose engines are proudly visible just behind the cockpit.

Both the watch and car industries have long recognized this very connection between performance cars and mechanical watches. So much so, that the two have often partnered in a number of ways in order to capitalize on it.

Many of our favorite luxury watch and Swiss watch manufacturers have teamed up with luxury car manufacturers. Some of our favorites? Breitling and Bentley, Tag Heuer and Porsche, Tag Heuer and Mercedes, Pannerai and Ferarri.... There is a timeless partnership between Swiss Watches and luxury cars. Long may it continue.

The Allure of Designer Watches

This afternoon, Gucci posted on their Facebook page about their watch collection. The Italian design house stated: "In the 1970s, Gucci was the first luxury house to add watches to its offering? The tradition continues today with our Gucci Timeless and Coupé collection." And Gucci watches continue to be popular amongst watch-loving consumers.

Indeed, many of our Watchery customers love Gucci watches in particular, and a design-house timepiece in general because they can add a fabulous statement to your look. Design-house watches, by labels such as Gucci, Fendi, Armani and so forth, offer the status symbol appeal without the earth-shattering price tags of Swiss-made luxury watches by esteemed watch manufacturers such as Breitling, Rolex, Cartier and more.

The latest design house to jump on the bandwagon is Roberto Cavalli who announced last week that he is teaming up with coveted Swiss watch manufacturer, Franck Mueller, for a new range of Roberto Cavalli watches.
The time pieces will cost from $1,600 to $7,600, with entry level timepieces up to more luxurious items.

No word yet on whether The Watchery will be stocking Cavalli's highly coveted new watch collection but watch this space...

How to Choose a Man's Watch

The best men's watches are not necessarily the ones from the most expensive watch brands on the market. Though a watch is often an investment, it does have to suit your budget. Your new men's watch should also look good on you and fit your personality.

How do you select the best watch for you? We have written up our list of some of the best ways to choose. Here, our advice on choosing a men's watch.

  • When it comes to mens' watches, one of the most universal types is the chronograph style. They can be worn by anyone because it doesn't matter what they are worn with--they always say 'cool and casual' or 'sporty.'
  • When selecting a watch you also have to consider your build and a watch-face size that suits you.
  • Leather v. plastic v. metal? Most people can carry each of these bracelet types well but you need to get the appearance right for your look. For example, you wouldn't want to sport the plastic rubber band for a formal affair.

At The Watchery we have a diverse selection of men's watches at significantly reduced prices. From domestic brands such as Activa and Invicta to luxury Swiss watches by Tag Heuer and Breitling. You will undoubtedly find the right men's watch for you at The Watchery.
