As part of the Watch Matchmaker Series we have extracted the following article from Meehna’s new home Longitude – Christies Watch Blog, following on from previous on screen characters and their lack of a quality timepiece, Martin Green has picked on Nucky Thompson from the award winning Broadwalk Empire..

We hope you enjoy them as much as we do and look forward to Meehna and her team over at Longitude providing us with many more great reads. Here is a snippette of Martin’s thoughts on a timepiece fit for Nucky of Broadwalk Empire….

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.

Mike Ross From “Suits” gets a Watch Matchmaker Makeover

I suggested a watch makeover for Mr. Manners K. Cooper Ray, an IWC Portofino 8 Days, which he thought fit him to a T. Now it’s time for me to address a watch issue on the TV series “Suits”. In the show on AMC, attorney Harvey Specter is the best closer in the business. Attractive, knowledgeable and a creative problem solver, he’s got a sharp mind as well as smooth social moves—and he hates to lose. On his team is young protégé Mike, who he’s grooming to move up the ranks. The fact that Mike, an exceptional talent, doesn’t actually have a law degree is another story. Harvey realizes Mike has got the chops, but he has a long way to go. Particularly in watch department.

Harvey got Mike fitted in a tailored suit and Italian shoes but he forgot the watch. Mike’s got to ditch that plastic number that he probably bought at the drugstore. It’s tacky. Especially for an associate at the prestigious firm Pearson Hardman. You don’t want to scare off a client with an off-the-rack polyester leisure suit and garage sale shoes. The wrong watch has the same effect. It doesn’t exude confidence and sophistication. And without a decent watch, Mike’s look just isn’t complete.
