Watch of the Week – Patek Philippe Ladies Twenty~4

Patek Philippe Ladies Twenty~4Welcome to our second installation of watch of the week.  This week I am going to do a ladies edition! One thing I have noticed is that there is plenty of information all over the Internet about men’s watches, but not much out there that covers women’s watches.

Time (no pun intended) to even the score and help out the ladies and blog about some watches for them, which for all you gentlemen, you should take some notes, as a watch makes an awesome gift for a birthday or anniversary! [Read more...]

Diamond Buyer Gift Guide – Hottest Holiday Watches for Her

Ladies WatchesThe holidays are here and we know our women love their diamonds, but sometimes we need to mix it up.  I know that my wife loves the gift of time, but let’s face it, I can’t give her the gift of time, because there are only so many hours in the day, but I can give her a watch so she can at least try to make some time for herself.

Watches are like a fine wine, as they age, some of them actually get better. I am a firm believer that buying a new watch is great if you can get your value out of it at a later date, but I also know that buying a new watch is generally not the smartest move.  I encourage all my customers to buy a used watch, and if you trust the source you are buying from and can get a warranty, then you are golden.

When you purchase a mid to high end brand, such as Rolex or Bertolucci, the models don’t change much year after year, so you are just as safe buying a used model as a new model, and you save lots of money by buying used that has been reconditioned and can last you a lifetime. [Read more...]

It’s Time to Break Up

WatchesI might have a touch of ADD and perhaps I can be accused of a wandering eye as well, but I do have an appreciation for beauty.  What can I say? It’s not that I get bored easily…okay; maybe I do get bored easily, but is that a crime?

What if I’m guilty of being one of those people who sees something I want and go after it, and when I realize it is better or sexier than what I have I have to break up with what I have. What choice do I have, and does that make me a bad guy? Maybe it just makes me a guy who knows when it is time to move on. After all, do you know when it it’s time to break up? [Read more...]

Diamond Buyer Presents: WWF Rolex Vs. Rolex

Rolex Submariner and Rolex GMT Master IIWelcome to the first Diamond Buyer Bout of the WWF!

Rolex Vs. Rolex

The WWF is the “Watch of the Week Fight”.  Why am I starting these bouts? Being a watch fiend (which is a disease I hope there is no cure for), I notice that many brands take a good model and remake that model, give it a new name with a few differences and then sell it.  And, what is going to make the Watch of the Week Fight so interesting, is that I am not going to tell you what models are up against each other.  I am going to give you all the details about each watch, then I want I want YOU to chime in and tell me which model you think is which and which model you think wins the bout!

I don’t find this either a good or bad practice, because I am one of the consumers that will buy both models, especially if I like the brand and feel it is a great watch, so I want to know YOUR take on this!

Let’s get ready to tick-tock!
