Thankfully, there’s Tudor, launched by Hans Wilsdorf in the early 20th century as a more affordable alternative to his beloved Rolex brand. So if you can't find the Rolex of your dreams, then why not give Tudor a go? There's a good chance you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what’s available — and how much they cost.
Omega is one of the most respected and popular luxury watch brands in the world, boasting a wide assortment of watch styles. Whether you’re looking for a classic dress watch, sporty chronograph, or causal yet cool everyday piece, chances are Omega has it — but the brand is particularly strong at the diving watch.
Like any other luxury good, caring properly for your fine timepiece is a big part of extending its life. While high-end watches are built to last, this is entirely dependent on how the owner treats it.

While I’m far from blasé after 15 years of writing about watches—they will always be my thing—it takes a truly special design to blow my mind. The one I can’t stop thinking about these days is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Hybris Mechanica Calibre 185 Quadriptyque.

Not too long ago, walking by a Rolex boutique meant being faced with a window full of glistening luxury watches, enticing you to come in and try one on.

If you’re lucky, you may find a few lonely watches desperately trying to fill out the beige space.
On the caseback of certain Omega watches like the Omega Speedmaster and Seamaster is a distinct engraving known as the Omega Seahorse or the Omega Hippocampus. Have you ever wondered where this particular emblem came from?
Some of the most famous vintage military watches are a group of timepieces affectionately known as the “The Dirty Dozen” — nicknamed after the 1967 World War II film, but with an origin story that pre-dates the movie by over two decades. Let’s explore the history, design, and collectability of these WWII-era military watches.
If you follow watch-focused Instagram accounts, you may start to believe the goal is to amass as many watches as possible. After all, collectors like to collect, and if you get bitten by the watch bug, the urge for “just one more watch” can be strong.
