In our fast-paced, ever-changing world, there are few things we can rely on to be constant. Good design, however, never goes out of style; nowhere is that truer than in the world of luxury watches. Consider some of the most iconic models of the modern age: the Patek Philippe Calatrava, the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso, and the Rolex Submariner. While they are all very different watches, they share the common traits of consistent, functional, and attractive designs that have prevailed for decades. In some ways, this is the same for high-end, modern furniture from a similar time period.

It’s easy to draw parallels between the art of watchmaking and that of creating handmade shoes. Both represent a true craft, a trade that has little to do with today’s digital development and in previous times, was often passed down from father to son. There are many companies that have been making shoes or watches for decades, and sometimes even centuries. A question to ponder, however, is whether both industries can survive on the craft alone and the romantic ideas that surround it. It’s good to look at some of the sentiments behind the love for handmade products, and how some companies have successfully brought their historic craft into modern times.

In general, one could say that two-tone watches are not as favoured as regular steel or full gold watches. Even when it comes to famous models like the Rolex Daytona or the Patek Philippe Nautilus, vintage and pre-owned two-tone watches are usually more affordable than regular steel watches. This is a phenomenon that is remarkable, but it's simply the result of people’s demand and therefore you could say that the gold steel combo is culturally less popular.

Many watches out there have been given nicknames. You can split them up into several categories, but they all have a clear reason for being there. Either the watch has been regularly seen on the wrist of a famous person or it has such clear characteristics that the nickname immediately (or after a bit of thinking) comes to mind when looking at the watch. Some watches even get a nickname because of a flaw that shows up many years after production.

A mechanical watch is so much more than just an instrument that tells the time. It is an expression of style and personality, because let’s be honest, if it were just for time keeping purposes, there are better options out there. The same can be said for people that listen to vinyl records.
