First and foremost, TAG Heuer is a watch making company. They have earned a legendary reputation for their innovativeness and dedication to timekeeping. Creating the most accurate chronographs in history and developing inventions, which were patented, and still in use today by many fine watch companies. They obviously have strong ties to the Formula One racing world, but did you know that TH has a presence in Hollywood? As early as 1960, TAG Heuer was working on the development of the, now famous TY Film Master stopwatch. The Film Master was designed to give Hollywood directors the ability to track how much of their film footage had been used in a particular filming sequence. These innovations for the film industry gave TAG Heuer a place on the big screen. Today, the avant-garde watch maker has a presence in the filming of many great movies. In “Good Luck Chuck” starring Dane Cook and Jessica Alba, Dane is wearing a TH Monaco Chronograph. In Jodie Foster’s film, the “Brave one”, her character sports a TAG Heuer Twin-Time Carrera, and in “The Bourne Ultimatum”, the famous character which Matt Damon plays, wears a TAG Heuer Link Chronograph, featuring a blue dial. This huge screen presence is evidence of the respect that actors and directors have for the TAG Heuer name.
Movado is a well known watch brand, but what do we know? We know the Museum Watch. We definitely know a Museum dial, when we see one. These watches have been Movado’s defining symbol, for as long as I can remember, but what of the Movado…before the Museum?
The Museum dial was designed in 1947, but by then Movado had been in business for many years, and created many important timepieces, so what has happened to these vintage pieces?
Looking on line and you can locate many rare and highly collectible Movado watches from the early to mid 1900’s. These creations are beautiful, and their quality is unmistakably Movado. As I said, this Swiss watch maker came long before the Museum watch did.
One such find, is the Movado Women’s Bracelet watch, circa 1960. This watch was crafted in 14 carat yellow gold, and has really contemporary styling. It is modern and stylish, and features a rectangular dial, made of Mother-of-Pearl. The delicate arms and minimalistic face of this women’s watch is in keeping with Movado’s design elements. This watch is a mechanical movement, and Swiss made. It offers a bit of color, in its’ blue jeweled cabochon crown. There are many of these fabulous estate finds, so the next time you think of Movado, remember they are more than their Museum watches.
Ok, the superior watch makers at Breitling have done it, again. Wow! That is the reaction I had, and I’m sure you will have, when you get a look at the newest creation from this authoritative watch maker. The Breitling Chronomatic Diamondworks watch was recently unveiled, and isn’t it spectacular. The 01 Chronomatic Diamondworks is the 2nd generation of the Chronomatic watch, which was produced in 2009. Looking over the original Diamondworks, it’s hard to believe that Breitling could raise the bar any higher, but they have. The 01 Chronomatic Diamondworks is dripping in 18 carat rose gold and diamonds. The setting of the diamonds is one of a kind, as is the movement which runs the timepiece. The powerful automatic winding mechanical movement is one of Breitling’s proprietary innovations. Breitling, leaders in their industry, have infused this watch with some surprising and unique design elements. The Diamond setting is like nothing you’ve ever seen before. The diamonds which mark the hours are displayed in a double row, atop a beautiful Mother-of-Pearl dial, and the bezel diamonds are meticulously integrated with numerical carvings, giving off an almost hieroglyphic appearance. There is no way to mistake this for any other, than a Breitling. The combination of exceptional horologic design and superior craftsmanship give this watch real collector appeal.
Who are the Movado Ambassadors? Well, one of the proud Ambassadors to this legendary watch maker is actress Amanda Seyfried. The American born actress and former child model exudes chic and elegance…a perfect match for Movado. The actress is best known for her roles in both the film Mamma Mia! and in the role of Karen in Mean Girls. Ms. Seyfried also played a starring role in the film adaptation of the Nicolas Sparks book, Dear John. The movie was a hit, and so was her portrayal. Looking at her doe-like green eyes and delicate features, it’s easy to see why Movado would want to join forces with her. She seems to emulate, through her appearance the same qualities the Movado designers have been working on for years. The demurely subtle look of Amanda Seyfried is so complimentary to the minimalistic stylings of Movado’s watches and jewelry, that it appears to be a match made in heaven. I wonder, what watch does she prefer? If I were to make a guess, I would pick the Amorosa. The ladies Amorosa in solid stainless-steel is a bangle bracelet, jewelry watch. It is delicate and alluring, with just a touch of sparkle…what do you think?
The newest designs from Raymond Weil are creative and symbolic. In the creation of the Freelancer Black 8, symbolism abounds. Raymond Weil is an independent company, with individual views on watch making. This uniqueness shines through in the personality of the Freelancer Black 8. The dial is a dreamy interpretation, full of spice and allure. The number 8 is indicative of the eternal. The never ending curve of the shape is symbolic of everlasting life. This powerful novelty watch by Raymond Weil uses the number 8 to display and promote infinite prosperity. The luckiest number in the universe is the centerpiece for the dial of the Freelancer Black 8. It is used in an, almost art deco fashion to display the hours, marked by diamonds. The release of this watch comes on the heels of the companies global expansion project, and is an apropos sign of Raymond Weil’s desire to become infinitely prosperous, themselves. The privately owned and operated watch maker has come a long way in a very short time. Using the traditional designs from the past and bringing them, full throttle into the future, with technological advancements and forward thinking designs has pushed Raymond Weil to the front of the pack in just 40 years.
