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?

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.

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.

Rousseau himself was not a watchmaker but he comes from a watchmaking family spanning four generations. Continue reading
