Glam Rock GR11158D Miami “Matelasse” Chronograph


by Adrian Herscovici  

Sophisticated Luxury Defined

Glam Rock WatchesNo glossary of terms cites a definition for “sophisticated fashion watches,” but if one did, the watches of Glam Rock would surely be in the description. Glam Rock watches combine Italian design with French-made case covers and Swiss movements – the result is a lineup of watches with true European flair and quality.

Model number GR11158D, from the brand’s Miami collection, is a fine example and a watch that will certainly draw attention starting with its polished oversized 46 mm stainless steel case. The case cover (the bezel, essentially) is also stainless steel, with black enamel and diamonds – 52 genuine high quality white diamonds, to be exact.

Interchangeable case covers are a feature of many Glam Rock watches, including this one, and while few covers are more dynamic than this diamond-studded knockout, the ability to mix and match is an important Glam Rock ideology. Rounding out the case design are an onion-style crown and matching chronograph pushers, which add a stroke of antiquity. The caseback is stainless steel and affixes by way of six screws, and the watch is water resistant to 330 feet.

Another interchangeable feature is the strap, and Glam Rock straps are simply extraordinary. The brand goes out of its way to source its exotic leathers from French and Italian tanneries. The black strap on the GR11158D is genuine leather with a matelassé (pronounced “mat-la-say”) pattern, which gives it the quilted and padded appearance. A classic prong buckle completes the look.

Like others in the Miami collection, this model features a chronograph powered by a Swiss made Ronda quartz movement. The chronograph functions are expressed on the dial by way of the sub-dial totalizers that track elapsed minutes and hours up to 12. The white sub-dials contrast well atop the colorful mother-of-pearl and are thus easy to read. The movement also has a date function that appears in an unframed window at 4 o’clock. Large and playful Arabic hour numerals and teardrop hands add further panache and character to the already dazzling arrangement.

Haemmer Ladies DHC-19 Secrets Nereus White Dial Chronograph Watch

Haemmer DHC-19 Nereus: The Perfect Timepiece for
Women Who Display Their Secrets Openly

Haemmer WatchesIn Greek mythology, Nereus was the fabled old man of the sea and the god of the ocean’s secret bounty of riches. He was known for his truthfulness and virtue. It is a fitting name for a watch that carries a rich bounty of its own. The Haemmer Ladies DHC-19 chronograph is part of the popular “Secrets” Collection, providing women with a unique and beautiful way to make a big statement.

Like all Haemmer Ladies timepieces, this 45 mm beauty is impossible to ignore. A bold white dial features oversized numbers at 6 and 12, with artfully designed black raised indices and a date window at 4 o’clock. Three well-placed subdials complete the design for timing events. The timepiece features a distinctive left-sided screw down crown that is flanked by two stainless steel pushers for activating event-timing functions. A precision Miyota OS10 quartz movement powers the watch and a durable stainless steel case that is water resistant to 330 feet protects it. The watch features a hardened mineral glass crystal and has been fitted with a beautiful stainless steel bracelet.

When young German watchmakers Holger Bohne and Jeroen Opdam founded Haemmer in 2008, they had big plans for both men and women. They recognized the demand for fashionable, oversized timepieces and were determined to manufacture a big, bold, fashion statement that defined everyone who wore it. Their vision was an overwhelming success. There is an authenticity to the Haemmer concept that appeals to a whole new generation of fashionistas and watch aficionados.

Maybe this is why big, bold timepieces like the fashionable Haemmer Ladies DHC-19 have already become status symbols in over 24 countries in four different continents. If you’d like to experience for yourself why having a Haemmer on your wrist is such a unique experience, contact an authorized Haemmer dealer immediately and reserve your Ladies DHC-19 Nereus today.

Viceroy Unisex 432109-35 Flash Chronograph


by Adrian Herscovici  

Vivacity and Substance for the High-Spirited

Viceroy WatchesPilar RubioViceroy ambassador, Pilar Rubio, personifies the brand’s charismatic Flash Collection, and just like the Spanish celebrity, Flash watches for men and women are ambitious and vivacious.

At 45 mm in diameter, with its eye-catching digits and substantial dimensions the Flash Chronograph is no subtle timekeeper. Some love it for its colorful and energetic persona, others for the embossed numbers and sport functionality; but no matter how you look at it, there is much to appreciate.

The case is made of stainless steel, as is the bezel, which is coated with IP for additional hardness and scratch-resistance. Because the bezel is quite thin, the dial is roomy, and Viceroy takes advantage of every available millimeter. A tachymeter appears on the flange just inside the bezel. The outer ring features the watch’s stand-out attribute — large embossed numerals for the even hours and large embossed line markers for the odd hours, all of which appear in the individual model’s feature color — in this case, light blue.

A 30-minute and small-seconds counters appear within the central ring, which has a seconds track and accommodates the full length of the hour, minute and chronograph-seconds hands. The date aperture is also within the central ring and is wide enough to display several days; an arrow below the Viceroy logo, perfectly centered in the vertical middle of the dial, points to the correct day. The hour and minute hands are made of steel, skeletonized and blue-tipped.

Large chronograph pushers and a fluted crown also feature light-blue accents, as does the strap’s matching blue thread. The Flash Chronograph is water resistant to 165 feet and houses a quartz movement. The strap is made of bicast, or PU leather, which has a layer of polyurethane applied to the surface; the resulting texture is easier to clean and maintain, meaning this Flash watch is not only versatile in every fashion season, it’s ready for most weather phenomena too!

by John Sealander  

What to Wear When You Refuse to be Ignored

Haemmer WatchesHaemmer Ladies DHC-12 Secrets Collection Yellow Dial Chronograph WatchWas the unmistakable Haemmer DHC-12 Cino named after Café Cino, the birthplace of Off-Off-Broadway theater, the Italian Cino commune, or perhaps after enigmatic American sculptor John Cino?
