The Calibre 37 is at the heart of two of their main timepieces namely: Senator Chronograph Panorama Date and the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date. The movement was the first Glashütte Original had conceived and built inhouse specifically as a chronograph, power reserve of 70 hours and the simplified movement has increased stability which resulted in improved time keeping.

Glashutte Watches

Fellow followers, should you be looking for a classic timepiece for that next important meeting do have a look at the Senator Chronograph Panorama Date. All hands are in blued steel and the dial is framed by an elegant bezel. The case is satin brushed and polished in either platinum or red gold. The Senator Chronograph Panorama Date fits well on a tailored suit.

If on the other hand you are looking for a timepiece which has a more sportier feel to it, then the Seventies Chronograph Panorama Date could be your next timepiece. It features a polished and soft cornered square bezel and the satin brushed case in stainless steel brings back the vintage look and feel. It is a nice luxury time piece for a less formal event and would go well with chinos and a shirt as the summer is just around the corner.

Luxury Timepiece Buying Guide

Fellow followers, whilst travelling we have been meeting quite a few fellow luxury gentlemen and gentlewomen who asked us the same question: “how do I go about buying my first timepiece?”.

Rolex Submariner

In this article, we will be going through some of the basic steps to buying a luxury watch. This is a quick and easy timepiece buying guide. If you are in the market for a new luxury watch or a pre-owned timepiece, the basic guide to buying your first timepiece remains the same.

1. Budget

Firstly and foremost, your budget is the most important part to starting your journey. Timepiece prices range greatly so knowing your budget before getting into the research phase is very important, more importantly once decided stick to it. A good Swiss watch can range from as little as £500 and up to £5M! You can read our article on luxury watches.

2. Research

Once your budget is fixed, the second phase is the research. When you delve into the world of timepieces, you will quickly notice that there are multiple places from which you will be able to purchase your first timepiece. There are official retailers, second hand dealers and more and more online retailers.

Watchfinder store

A word of caution, we would recommend reading reviews of the places that you are planning on visiting buying your timepiece from as this is one of the best methods to find out if that dealer is genuine. You can read a good article that can help avoiding buying a fake watch.

3. Investment

A luxury timepiece is somewhat similar to buying a car. It is an expensive purchase that carries a price tag but also holds a sentimental value to the owner.

As with any form of investment, you will want to take care of your first timepiece. Insurance is a good start, as there are many brokers out there offering good deals. It is important to note that usual home insurance doesn’t necessarily covers luxury timepieces.

4. Warranty & Aftercare

One of the most important factors to take into consideration when looking at buying your first timepiece, if pre-owned, is whether it is still under manufacturer guaranty. Because of amounts of money involved in luxury watches, many resellers offer their own watch guaranty, but double check what this covers!

Another point to think about is the aftercare. A bit like a car, a luxury timepiece has many complicated movements that need to be regularly checked to see that everything is working correctly. Brands recommend servicing your watch every three to five years to make sure that everything is running smoothly.

Rolex Submariner Aftercare5. Water Resistance

One aspect that seems to confuse potential first time watch buyers is the numbers on the dial describing the watch’s water resistance. Here is a quick recap, but if you want to learn more here is a good article:

  • 30 metres water resistance will repel rain, but shouldn’t be submerged in water.
  • 50 metres water resistance can be worn for swimming
  • 100 metres for snorkelling
  • 200 metres for more extreme water sports.
  •  500 metres water resistance for water diving, although those specially designed for professional SCUBA diving might come with 1000 metres or more on the dial

6. Purchasing

Once you have finally decided your budget, whether you want a new or pre-owned timepiece and decided from which retailer you want to purchase from, it doesn’t end there!

Handing over a considerable amount of money for your first timepiece is no laughing matter. Every time piece is unique and even within a specific model, a year compared to another one, there could be minor changes which changes the timepiece.

It’s always worth trying before buying. Most establishments are happy for you to call and make an appointment so as you don’t feel rushed into committing.

 

In conclusion, buying your first timepiece is much like a journey on which you can learn a lot whilst making a sound investment. If you have any questions please do email us or get in touch on Twitter/Facebook and we will be happy to help you fellows out.

The Roof Gardens London One Day Event

Gentlemen and fellow followers,

 

If you are visiting London this summer and are looking for the perfect place that combines: rooftop bar, party people, good music, great location then look no more as The Roof Gardens offers all of these.

 

Welcome to The Roof Gardens - the roof gardens london

For those who haven’t been to The Roof Gardens before, it is located in the chic and area of W8 (High Street Kensington to the non Londoners). Situated on top of the previously well known Derry & Tom’s Department store (now above M&S, H&M, GAP and High Street Kensington Tube Station) The Roof Gardens boast a fantastic location in central London and should not be missed this summer 2014.

 

The Roof Gardens are more than your average London club. Renowned for their high end gardens (achieving 4* on Trip Advisor ), the three gardens are definitely worth a visit: The Spanish Garden, as the name suggests, is based on the style from Granada in Spain. The Tudor Garden, surrounds you in lilies, roses and lavender during the summer months. Finally, the English Woodland Garden the best of the 3 during the summer months with thousands of anemones bursting into life.

The Club is also well known for its moto of “no effort – no entry” – very much in line with our own philosophy! Furthermore the famous restaurant – Babylon – sets the scene by being on the 7th floor and showcases London’s amazing skyline.

 

We were lucky enough to be granted VIP access to The Roof Gardens One Day event. Our fellows from The Roof Gardens definitely know how to celebrate the start of the summer and the kicking off of the outdoor party season. We weren’t disappointed by the turnout on the day as all the gentlemen and gentle ladies from London turned up promptly and dressed the part.

 The atmosphere was buzzing to the beats of Benny Blanco, DJames, Serene Sass and Basil (Black-II-Basic) and the drinks were flowing all afternoon in the hot English weather.

Gentlemen if you are looking for an establishment in London which is more than your average club, that has character and history, then The Roof Gardens is a definite recommendation.
