New Watch Brand: Votum Watches - Stylish, Budget Friendly Watches

Feb 27, 2015
Votum Watches is brining you simple yet elegant watches. Designed to be worn by any person for any occasion. There are no chronographs, bloated markers or anything to distract you from the naturel beauty of the watch. Stepping away from trendy watches, this minimal design really represents the beginning era of watches while bringing in a modern feel. The crisp, clean design is perfect for that all-important business meeting as well as a casual Sunday.

The watches themselves feature a Miyota quartz movement, which is a reliable three hand movement, a crystal mineral glass, 42mm stainless steel body, all complimented by a 20mm genuine leather band.

They are now available on Kickstarter at heavily discounted prices that will never be seen again. Orders yours now before the early bird specials are gone for \$69 or two for only \$119. These two deals are both a steal, especially when buying both watches. Easily exchange the straps to create four different color schemes and truly have a unique, never before seen timepiece.

The Votum team needs your help if they want to turn their dream into a reality. We ask everyone to take the time to look at their project on Kickstarter and learn more about the company and the vision behind Votum Watches.

Enter to win the new Evarii Modular Watch

Feb 20, 2015
Evarii is a revolution in the watch industry. We have broken down a timepiece in to 5 main components to create a completely modular and customizable watch that can be completely changed in just 30 seconds or less. The components are as follows. The body (case), the Head (bezel), the face (dial,movement and glass), the arm (crown) and last but not least the legs (strap). What Evarii allows you to do is change any part at any time to any other design (everytime you buy a new piece your options grow exponentially because they can go together however you choose). If you desire a new watch you don’t have to invest in an entirely new timepiece, You can go on our site and try out a new dial, or case, or bezel. This allows you to build a collection of parts that can work together anyway you like, that you can change anytime. The parts are all designed to work with every other part so you can customize your watch differently with all the parts you collect. You can trade parts with friends who have Evarii as well as the watch is completely modular.

The design supports quartz and mechanical movements and we are developing a smart watch “band” as well. Essentially you are building a “watch wardrobe” that can be put together whichever way you want. Our website will even keep an inventory of your purchases so you can see how any design will look and share it with friends before purchasing new parts. In fact we encourage it. We will be holding competitions for designers and more!

Wear a luxury watch - and earn money

Dec 13, 2013
Singaporean based photographer Dominic Khoo started a world first investment-structure. After a decade of collecting and studying watches, the enthusiast decided that “It's About Time” to launch The Watch Fund.

What is new about the idea? Investors can actually wear top-level watches and sell them later for a profit, gaining access to extreme limited editions and enjoying high price advantages. Khoo's fund even offers provenance pieces, worn by royalty and historical figures.

Since its foundation in February 2013, The Watch Fund has become a serious player in the international investment scene. According to the fund's website, the total AUM currently stands at USD\$16,000,000.

Investors can expect a minimum return of 20% at the end of three years daily wear: “With the price of skilled labour only going to go up in the watch industry – top-level watches will become rarer and more expensive”, says certified watch expert Khoo.

Dominic Khoo is a veteran in the watch industry, having trained with the world's biggest watch auction house Antiquorum and worked in brand management for Girard-Perregaux. Additionally, he recently started up the watch auction arm for Spink (previously owned by Christie's), the world's oldest auction house.

NICK VON K unveils first ever collection of watches

Nov 13, 2013

For immediate release, Wednesday 13th November.

At exactly 11pm on Saturday 9th November a flashmob started in 1885 Britomart, where New Zealand jewellery brand Nick Von K was hosting media as part of The Black Club. When the lights went up and the music went down, designer Nick Von Klarwill had one thing to say…
“I’ve made a watch!”
Nick Von K’s watch collection is the first ever from the Auckland-based jewellery designer, who has gone from strength to strength since his 2010 inception. Nick Von K has just returned from New York, where his most recent jewellery collection Midnight Carnival was launched to critical acclaim. The collection of watches is another notch in his increasingly eclectic belt.
“I wanted to bring back the watch! People don’t wear watches as much anymore, they check the time on their cellphones. So I wanted to create a watch collection cool enough that people would want to wear a watch on their wrist again,” says Nick Von Klarwill.
Watch the Nick Von K watch official promo video here:
The idea was born earlier this year when Nick’s cousin Richard Boers approached him about making a watch line together. Keeping the rock n’ roll aesthetic core to Nick Von K, the boys came up with four unique designs – a skull, a snake, a lion and wings – with engraved quotes that play on the notion of time.

W. T. Author's 'No. 1905' Wristwatch

Sep 25, 2013
The first series of limited edition timepieces by W. T. Author.

Every part has been designed and hand-finished by W. T. Author in Britain. The watches are equipped with Swiss-made movements.

The 'No. 1905' first edition watch has been inspired by the turn of the 20th Century: a period of time when the first wristwatches for men were introduced by Louis Cartier and Edmond Jaegar. Taking inspiration from traditional aesthetics of the pocket watch, it reflects pioneering achievements of the era with signature shoulders brazed directly into the bespoke case allowing a hand-finished leather strap to be fitted. The case measures 46 mm across and 52 mm high including the shoulders. The case depth is 11 mm The dial utilises numbers taken directly from 1900's pocket watches and is enhanced with Author's unique hour markers. Traditionally formed custom-made hands complete the dial.

The watch has been modernised with a beautiful enamel screw down case back, the signature red aluminium crown embossed with the Author trademark and a Swiss made 513S calibre movement.

Every watch comes with an A5 book detailing the story of master watchmaker W. T. Author individually signed by the team and a limited editon A5 silk screen print available in 5 colours, again individually numbered and signed.

There are limited early rewards priced at £300 available exclusively for Indiegogo backers for a limited time while stock lasts at http://igg.me/at/wtauthor.

Watchfinder releases video of Rolex strip down piece-by-piece

Constantly exploring new media to present watchmaking to their audience, Watchfinder has begun to film what will become a video library of horology. Crisp, informative and beautifully shot, these videos aim to capture the craftsmanship, expertise and fineness to watchmaking.

Looking 'under the bonnet’ of the great classics, Watchfinder kicks off with the Rolex calibre 3135. Head Watchmaker, Tony Williams, meticulously demonstrates how to take this movement apart and then reassembles it.

Since going live on YouTube last month, the video has received the plaudits of the discerning watch blogging community. 00/24 WatchWorld and Prodigal Guide editor, Tim Barber, summed it up in one word; 'beautiful'.

The First High-End Mechanical Watch with Artificial Intelligence

Sep 04, 2013
For Urwerk, a precision timepiece should have at its base a movement that is accurate, reliable and long lasting. Such a movement should meet specific criteria including accuracy in 5 positions between -4 seconds and +6 seconds over 24 hours. However, while it is one thing to regulate an accurate watch in the controlled world of a workshop, performance in the sometimes-extreme real world, i.e. on the wrist, can be very different. Changes in position and temperature, and shocks, can all adversely affect isochronism (timing regularity) of a wristwatch. The challenge with EMC was in developing a mechanical watch that can be regulated by its owner to obtain the finest chronometric performance.

EMC is the first precision mechanical watch that enables timing to be both easily monitored and easily adjusted by its owner.

With EMC, not only can the wearer obtain the precise timing rate on demand, they can then use that information to accurately adjust the timing of their watch to suit their own personal rhythm. Electro Mechanical Control (EMC) is the world's first precision mechanical watch in which the timing can be monitored and adjusted by the user to suit their lifestyle EMC is fully interactive.

EMC marks the dawn of a new era, that of an interactive smart mechanical watch allowing the owner to gauge the precision of their timepiece's chronometric performance and fine-tune it to better suit their daily rhythm and pace of life.

Watch3 black

Jul 25, 2013
Watch3 black

The concept:
Watch3 black is the latest version of the watch3 line that was launched four years ago.
The original idea of adding information, without adding clutter by printing the figures on the underside of the sapphire crystal, so the are only visible when the hour hand passes underneath, is still the same. But now with the dial and the case being in black, the design becomes bolder.
The design of the case is very clear and stark. As a counterpoint, the back of the watch is engraved in a playful way with the logo and an individual serial number.
All the materials used are of the highest quality: steel case with black PVD coating, sapphire crystal, ETA quartz movement, all Swiss Made and assembled by hand in the Swiss watch capitol Biel, by renowned watchmaking family Pierre Junod.

A limited and numbered edition of 100 pieces is planned.
This product can be purchased exclusively through my online shop on http://www.stevengoetz.com

diameter: 40 mm
thickness: 6.7 mm
weight: 44 g
