Luxury Timepiece Quiz

Gentlemen and Fellow Followers,

 

When you are in market for that extraordinary timepiece you have no doubt been conducting some serious market research to understand the style of timepiece that would fit your needs and gentleman style.

 Rolex Timepiece Quiz

Some people would say “there are not enough hours in the day”, however when selecting your timepiece this is the perfect time to spend time on going through the different touch points.

 

There are various questions that should be considered:

  • Price: do you prefer buying a brand new timepiece or second-hand would do the job?
  • Style: Traditional Rolex or the latest Hublot design?
  • Strap or Bracelet?
  • Movement: Chronograph, Fusion or Tourbillon?
  • Technology: traditional or latest?
  • Standards of Craftsmanship, Swiss or American?
  • Financial Value
  • Guarantees: after a considerable amount of investment, make sure to check what guarantees you have.

 

Our fellows over at Crown and Caliber have developed a small and fun timepiece quiz for us fellow Gentlemen to see how well we have done our homework before going out to buy our timepiece.

 Hublot Timepiece Quiz

If you feel ready and want to test your timepiece knowledge and skills, you can take the timepiece quiz.

 

Do let us know how you get on by tweeting your results to @luxuymenblog and the fellows with the top 3 highest scores will get mentioned next week.

 

So Gentlemen and fellow followers, do you think you have what it takes?

Daniel Wellington Summer Style 2013

Gentlemen and fellow followers,

Before packing our bags for the south of Europe, we were eagerly researching a new summer gentleman’s watch. We had a specific criteria, the watch had to be stylish, be a positive additional piece of our summer outfits as well as being preppy and elegant. It was a challenge! However after a few weeks of investigation, we came across Daniel Wellington’s watches. After visiting their Facebook (here) and Instagram pages (here), we really liked the look and feel of the brand.

We found the story behind Daniel Wellington very interesting. He was a man with a “colourful personality who had an inspiring ability to be gentlemanly, relaxed and unpretentious at the same time.” This fellow Gentleman used to wear his old Rolex on Nato straps which originated from the British Navy. This changed the style of the old rusty Rolex to a more modern and preppy look.

One of the added benefits of the Daniel Wellington watches is that the straps are interchangeable, meaning one day you can opt for a preppy look to go to the tennis courts and the next you can have a classic formal watch for that important client meeting.

Our personal favourite was the Canterbury with the silver ring colour as its fit very nicely with our summer preppy outfits. We have been using it both as a complementary piece to our outfits but also as an individual piece.

The Summer Preppy Look 2013
: the watch goes very nicely with a pair of colourful chinos and boat shoes for any boat and pool party that we had planned in the South of Europe. Works wonders with a tan, blue chinos, navy boat shoes and a pink shirt!

The Meeting Back to Work
: Of course the different straps that are available, are a nice addition as with one watch, you can customise the look to become more formal and classical.
