With the festive season around the corner, there will be plenty of different occasions to make an impression towards your fellow colleagues in a subtle manner. 100% Cashmere, the design is tailored for a slim fit. Beige is a definite must have for your wardrobe, only £395 from Burberry.

Introducing Watchfinder

Gentlemen and fellow followers,

 

We joined our fellows from Watchfinder on Thursday for a very special event at their boutique at The Royal Exchange in Bank. The master class brought together like minded gentlemen and gentlewomen to discuss the latest trends in the luxury watch industry.

Watchfinder Reader Event

We had the opportunity to meet the team from the Watchfinder at the event, who were kind enough to share with us their points of views on the watch industry and news about their new edition of the Watchmag (you can download their app here) . We also had the chance to see one of their watchmakers showcasing their art.

 

If you fellows are in the market and are looking to purchase a new timepiece or currently in the research phase, we would recommend you getting in touch with the gentlemen from Watchfinder. We came by the fellows from Watchfinder during our research for our first timepiece.

Rolex GMT Master

We opted for the classical Rolex Submariner Datejust for a few reasons. We were really interested by the history behind the Rolex Submariner. Designed for diving (up to 300m) by Rolex, the Submariner is known for its high quality, water resistance and corrosion. With the summer coming up, we thought it best to procure ourselves a luxury watch that would resist sea water.

Rolex Submariner

Another reason is that the Rolex Submariner is a good entry level timepiece for the fellows entering the luxury watch ladder. It won’t lose value over time and it could help with your next luxury timepiece acquisition. Our fellows at Watchfinder can help you with your upgrade since their moto is “Pre-owned Uncompromised”.

 

So Gentlemen, if you are interested in learning more about the latest trends in the luxury watch industry download their app here. If you are also looking to purchase your next luxury timepiece then visit our fellows at Watchfinder.

Most Expensive Luxury Watches

Gentlemen and fellow followers,

 

For most of us pay day has just arrived and for some of our fellows, Q2 bonuses are just around the corner. With these in mind, we thought it would be a good time to showcase a few interesting luxury watches. As some of your gentlemen will agree, a watch is much more than just an item that gives you the time.

Hublot Big Bang Steel Ceramic 44mm

Hublot Big Bang Steel Ceramic 44mm – £13,700

A personal favourite of Luxurymenblog is the Hublot Big Bang Steel Ceramic 44mm. The Swiss manufacturer is renowned for their “art of fusion” of different material combinations. This is the entry level watch in terms of price, but it does portrait a sense of edginess and stylish feel when worn. The combination of steel and ceramic gives the timepiece an extra sense of luxury. The movement is Hublot’s Self Winding Chronograph movement.

 

Patek Philippe 2526

Patek Philippe 2526 – £26,900

For our fellows who prefer the more classic timpiece, the Patek Philippe 2526 is a safe choice. Originally introduced in the 1950s, it was Patek’s first automatic movement which is considered an iconic watch by many collectors. The 18K gold case and porcelain dial offers something different to us fellow gentlemen. Only 600 2526 timepieces were created by Patek Philippe, making this watch quite rare.

 

If these two previous timepieces were indeed on the lower end of the spectrum in terms of price, the following timepieces are for the gentlemen who have some spare money to spend from their left over bonus.

LOUIS MOINET METEORIS WATCH

Louis Moinet Meteoris Watch ~ Price £2,760,000

The third most expensive timepiece in the world, the Louis Moinet Meteoris watch. The collection is comprised of 4 models, including Tourbillion Mars, Tourbillon Moon, Tourbillion Rosetta Stone and the Tourbillion Asteroid. Each timepiece features a rare piece of meteorite making each piece unique. Our personal favourite is the Tourbillion Mars, not only for the look but because the piece has a 180M piece of meteorite featuring in it as well as the tourbillion movement.

 

 PATEK PHILIPPE – HENRY GRAVES – POCKET WATCH

Patek Philippe – Henry Graves – Pocket Watch ~ Price: £6,600,000

Fellows, we are now entering a different league of gentlemen. The special pocket watch produced by Patek Philippe for the famous American banker Henry Graves. Being the second most expensive timepiece in the World the Patek Philippe Henry Graves Pocket Watch is by far a super rich timepiece. The watchmakers took 5 years to complete the timepiece in 1933 and boasts 24 different movements and is 18K gold. A very interesting timepiece as it has history behind it.

So Gentlemen, which would you pick?

Luxury Shopping at Bicester Village

Gentlemen and fellow followers,

With the clocks moving forward an hour, and the Spring nearly upon us, it was time for us to upgrade our wardrobe and accessories at one of London’s stylish shopping outlets. We decided to embark on a luxury journey for the day from London for some luxury shopping to the renowned Bicester Village. Technically speaking, Bicester Village is located on the outskirts of Oxford, an 1h15 North West of London.

Bicester Village

Bicester Village is part of the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages by Value Retail. The company specialises exclusively in the development of luxury outlet shopping villages. In fact, during our last visit to Barcelona, we visited La Roca Village which is part of the same group for some international outlet luxury shopping.

 

A kind word of caution, for the fellow gentlemen wanting to attempt the exploration of Bicester Village, we would strongly recommend having an early night to visit the village at its opening to fully enjoy the experience. Surrounded by likeminded gentlemen and fellows, it is easy to get carried away!

 

We visited several of our favourite brands during our visit, Burberry, Polo Ralph Lauren, Coach and Timberland to name a few. You can find the full list of stores here.

Bicester Village - Polo Outlet

One of our new acquisitions was Timberland’s Earthkeeper Heritage 2 Eye, also known as Timberland’s Boat shoe.

Bicester Village - Timberland

Made from premium leather and rawhide lace, it is a classic item for any gentleman. The boat shoe can be worn for both formal and informal events and a nice addition to ones summer style. You can find them on the official site here or even better you can go to Bicester Village to pick them up!

Another luxury acquisition was the Coach Cardholder which we have been trying to locate for some time now. Crafted in tanned leather with hand-aligned pockets, it is a nice accessory to complete your business look.

Bicester Village - Coach
So Gentlemen, if you are looking for a day out close to London, Bicester Village is the place to visit should you need a new wardrobe or new accessories to upgrade your look.
