In what settings, professions, and social circles are luxury watches considered acceptable?

I only own one relatively quite dress watch, but this is a question I like to ask myself as I browse some of the more imaginative offerings on this forum from brands like Urwerk, MB&F, and DeBethune. For those who own watches that could be considered "fla

Boutique Experiences in NYC

Really good selection of Independents - MB&F, Urwerk, De Bethune, Greubel Forsey, Richard Mille etc. My experience with their sales staff is that, yes, they are most definitely in the business of selling watches and making money, but I think the vast majo

2019 (did I really just write that? Where does the time go?) reflections on where we've been and where we are going in the watch world.

That is how my keeper looks like

for hundreds of instructive hours spent here. I am not much of a “poster”, I know, but I enjoy my time here a lot. To celebrate, here’s a pic of my current line-up which I find very balanced and practical. I know, I am missing some “independent”, most lik

2018: Your most worn watches.

So, what's hogged the most wrist time this year for everyone. And were there any surprises in how those watches may have found themselves more frequently on the wrist. For me I'll chose two watches, quite different but equally wrist grabbing. #1 Rolex Sub
