Boardwalk Empire Nucky ThompsonBy Martin Green for Longitude – Christies Watch Blog

Watch auctions are basically a way of connecting top of the line watches with collectors and connoisseurs who appreciate them. A watch needs to suit you, especially when you are an actor playing a particular role. That’s why in the past we have matched “Suit’s” Mike Ross and gentleman K. Cooper Ray with a watch suited for them.

Now it is time to do this once again; this time for Steve Buscemi and his alter-ego Nucky Thompson. Steve Buscemi is not your typical actor. No broad shoulders, large muscles or a smile that seems to come straight out of a toothpaste commercial. No, Buscemi is more your everyday guy, with an extraordinary talent for character acting.

To see what Martin suggests Nucky wears on his wrist… Trust me it’s definately worth a read the full article can be found at Longitude – Christies Watch Blog http://blogs.christies.com/longitude/brands/watch-matchmaker-boardwalk-empires-nucky-thompson-gets-a-new-watch/

In Martin’s own words “I’m convinced that his taste for the finer things in life would definitely make him recognize and appreciate the extraordinary craftsmanship of the Vacheron. A character actor needs a character watch! I call that a double match!”

To Wind or not to Wind – Ask the Queen???

To Wind or not to Wind Your Timepiece, that is the Question: Queen Elizabeth Says Wind

Since the Queen of England winds her clocks and watches, does that mean you should too? The Queen has a position amongst her staff of that of a Horological Conservator and one of the duties is to keep the watches, clocks and other mechanisms wound and working.

 

Now that is definately an important question and one that a number or watch collectors ask.

We all agree that the care and upkeep of your personal timepieces is an important factor to keep them running well and on time, but does keeping watches ticking preserve them for longer and keep them more effective or is it better to let them wind down?

The Queen has a position amongst her staff of that of a Horological Conservator and one of the duties is to keep the watches, clocks and other mechanisms wound and working.

A Square amongst the Norm – Nomos Tetra

The Nomos Tetra Adds More Tint to the Rainbow

As you all know we concentrate on haute timepieces, Nomos is a brand based out of  Glashutte, Germany with arich tradition in producing quality timepieces, very clean designs and subtle but impresive cases. Up until recently they have manufactured all their timepieces in round cases, but with the introduction of the Tetra, as the name suggests it is the only square watch in Nomos’s stable. The Nomos Tetra is also probably the most feminine style watch in the Nomos manufacture

So who better than Meehna Goldsmith to talk us through the Nomos Tetra on Longitude – Christie Watch Blog, here is a bit of what you can expect

The Nomos Glashutte Tetra is not only for Ladies it can certainly do the job with its well-proportioned 29.5mm size. Smaller, more vintage-sized watches have circled back round to become fashionable again.

Busser and Baumgartner create C3H5N3O9 Redefines the Watch World Yet Again…

 

The Wacky and Wonderful World of Busser and Baumgartner: C3H5N3O9 Redefines the Watch World Yet Again

Maximilian Busser is the type of guy who really doesn’t care what people think about him. That’s a huge statement to make. Most of us attempt to do an elaborate tango in the social and work arena because we’re trying to gain friends and good will. Busser just won’t do the dance. And this is a good thing, especially in the often times-constrained world of watches. If Busser were to tippy-toe around, we wouldn’t have the quirky and playful creations from his company MB&F like the HM3 JWLRYMACHINE and the Legacy Machine 1.

Watch Matchmaker Series – Brooke Lewis and the Ulysse Nardin

Watch Matchmaker: Actress and Life Coach Brooke Lewis and the Ulysse Nardin Lady Diver Starry Night

By Meehna Goldsmith

In Meehna’s WatchMatchmaker series as published on Longitude – Christies Watch Blog , Meehna and her contributors have restyled fashion and manners king K. Cooper Ray along with Mike Ross from the hit TV show Suits. This time Meehna has got some advice for Brooke Lewis.

Brooke is a talented actress and producer. She’s won many awards for acting including, Excellence in Film for Sprinkles, Scream Queen of the Month on ScreamQueen.com and the Silver Lei Award for Ms. Vampy’s Tween Tawk, Teen Tawk & In Between Tawk, my personal fav.  I love her saucy and straightforward vampire, providing valuable insight and advice to young girls in a supportive environment. Without the teeth and cape, she also runs a successful business as a sought after life coach. A very smart cookie, this adorable and fiery brunette possesses the acceleration of a souped up Ferrari. You don’t want to get in her way when she wants to get something done.
