The Pocket Watch

Pocket WatchTo me there is nothing more beautiful than a pocket watch, and I sometimes wish I lived during the days when men wore pocket watches on chains and hung them in their pockets.  I think pocket watches are elegant and beautiful, especially when they are well made and in fabulous vintage condition.

I have to admit that I don’t see a lot of pocket watches come across my desk as a watch buyer, but I did get to see the most fabulous pocket watch I believe Jonathan’s Watch Buyer has ever owned to date.  A Patek Philippe made for N. Matson & Co. in Chicago 18 kt. Gold pocket watch.

Rolex Milgauss – Rolex Watch Series

Rolex MilgaussHow can you NOT love a watch that has an orange lightning bolt for a second hand? The Rolex Milgauss is such a fine watch. Here’s what’s so cool about it. It not only looks fantastic, but it really is a neat watch with a very interesting history. I bought my Milgauss because I loved the heft of the watch and the way it looked. I’ll be honest and admit that I knew nothing about the science behind the watch when I purchased the watch. I owned this watch for about 2 months when a customer begged me to buy it off my wrist. Will I buy another one? Absolutely.

What Your Watch Style Says About You

I’m Sporty.  In fact, you can call me Sporty Sergio if you want.  My wife, she’s Fashion.  We are Sporty and Fashion Nuncio, and we named ourselves after our watch style.    Does this make you want to break out in a Spice Girls song? It does for me, because it reminds me of the Spice Girls and how each of their names were indicative of their personalities: Sporty, Scary, Ginger, Posh and Baby.

When you buy a watch, the watch style is also a function of your personality.  It says who you are.  Are you sporty or a fashion icon? Are you contemporary or traditional? No matter which watch style you do go with, or even if you like to switch off, what you are strapping on your wrist is going to say who you are that day and how you are feeling.

The Three-Finger Rule

Rolex Jubilee BraceletDid you know that you can tell a lot about your watch by just three fingers? You can. I’ve actually touched on this subject before on my other site, Jonathan’s Diamond Buyer, about if you need too.

The three-finger rule, which I made up by the way, is to see if your bracelet is in good shape or not. Now, I didn’t make up the way to see if your watch bracelet is in good shape, but I did make up the name, the three-finger rule.

Rolex Cellini – The Rolex Watch Series

Rolex CelliniThe Rolex Cellini is often not considered a “real” Rolex, but it is just as real as the Rolex Explorer or the Rolex Submariner. The difference is that this particular line was designed as the ideal timepiece for those who have an appreciation of true artistry and it is also the first watch that was produced in large quantities that gained chronometric certification.

This Rolex collection was developed in celebration of sculptor and goldsmith Benvenuto Cellini, and although often overlooked and undervalued as part of the Rolex family, once men and women are exposed to the line, they rarely turn back because of the beauty that this line presents.
