Franck Muller Honors Cristiano Ronaldo With A New Watch

David Beckham has signed with Breitling, so there is competition in the world of athletic endorsements and high-end men`s watches. Perhaps that is why Franck Muller has decided to make his first ever collection for a famous footballer. Cristiano Ronaldo has been honored by the watchmaker with a series of seven top-of-the-line watches. It is a first for the watch maker and a natural endorsement for the soccer superstar.

Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT Watch

Breitling has built a name for itself as one of the most famous and respected watchmakers in the world, and those looking for a luxury watch will often consider one from their various collections. One of the most popular choices is the Breitling Chronomat 44 GMT Watch, a self-winding wristwatch that is a smaller version of an old favorite. At 44 mm in diameter, it offers comfort along with precision, performance, and style.

Romain Jerome DeLorean DNA Watch

The Romain Jerome Watch Company has a very short history, but in that time it has released some of the most legendary and talked about timepieces in history. Their first huge splash was made by releasing the Moon Dust DNA, a watch that featured actual moon dust in its construction. This was followed by the Titanic DNA, featuring steel from the famous ship. And now the company has returned with the DeLorean DNA, a testament to one of the most famous cars in pop culture history.

Longines Telemeter & Tachymeter Chronograph Watches

Today’s modern luxury watches are built on the same principles that were used more than 100 years ago. Watchmaking is a true craft, and the best luxury watches are works of art. The new offerings from Longines hope to remind watch enthusiasts of days gone by, and the Longines Telemeter & Tachymeter Chronograph Watches are two vintage style watches that are both affordable and attractive. These sport style watches draw from previous pieces offered by Longines, only with different dials. They’re well worth a closer look, particularly if you’ve never owned a Longines sport watch.

Pure & Simple – Patek Philippe Calatrava vs. Lange & Sohne Saxonia

Sometimes you can take one simple look at a watch and know that it’s one you have to have. Luxury watch owners are well-known for their taste and for knowing what they want from a watch. But it’s not always that easy, and sometimes deciding between different timepieces can be difficult, especially if they’re somewhat similar in their design. With that in mind, comparing some of the most popular watches is often a must. The Lange & Sohne Saxonia and the Patek Philippe Calatrava are two perfect examples of slightly similar watches worth taking a look at.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Unique Travel Time Watch

Luxury watch collectors and enthusiasts are always focused on time. A quality timepiece stands for a lot more than just someone who wants to keep track of the day – it’s an extension of your personality and your style. The Jaeger-LeCoultre Watch Company has one of the best reputations for quality on the planet, and continues to release compelling pieces that capture the attention of the watch world. Their newest offering is the Jaeger-LeCoultre Duometre Unique Travel Time Watch, an exquisite watch available only in a 100 piece limited edition release. In short, only 100 of these watches are available in the world. It’s expected that the SIHH event in Geneva in January of 2013 will see non-limited edition models be introduced as well, and the question will really be whether or not one wants an exclusive item or not.

IWC has a rich history of quality, and in recent years it has focused on improving some of its existing collections. The Pilot’s Watch collection was the focus for 2012, but according to most information it seems as though the Ingenieur Collection will be the company’s primary focus. This is the IWC line of sporty luxury watches, and first on its list is the newly redesigned IWC Ingenieur Chronograph Racer, expected to debut at SIHH 2013.

HD3 Slyde to sponsor PokerStars` Caribbean Adventure 10th Anniversary event in January 2013

The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is one of the premier poker tournaments in the world, so it only makes sense that the PCA would partner with a watch company that shares the same focus on innovation and excitement in every aspect of their company’s operations. It’s recently been announced by David Carrion, who serves at the PCA’s Director of Live Operations, that luxury watch company Slyde will once again be the official watch sponsor of the event and will offer its high-end, unique watches to the winners of different PCA events as they occur. This is the second partnership made between Slyde and PokerStars since the European Poker Tour also features Slyde.

The Zenith Defy Xtreme Tourbillon Sea Titanium Men’s Watch is all about extreme masculinity. It is said that the founder of Zenith once looked up into the night sky and saw perfection.

He then set out to create the world`s best watches and his company, Zenith, has done that with the Tourbillion Sea Titanium.

Why Buying Your Luxury Watch Online is a Good Idea

The Internet continues to evolve and change, which means that there is a constant flow of new technology being introduced. There was a time when the Internet was overrun with people who were only interested in causing mischief and stealing consumer information.

Luxury watches are items that people can find online for great prices, but the online shopping experience needs to be enhanced before people will spend money to buy a watch online. With all of the changes that have occurred with the Internet lately, security and a great shopping experience are now possible.
