If you're in the mood, Brexit market jitters might have just made this Longines Silver Arrow re-issue on eBay great value for money. Learn about the provenance of the original which made the Silver Arrow one of St. Imier's most sought after watches.

During the mid 20th century, many movements developed by Longines were an answer to demand and needs from international markets with most of them made specially for the United States. During the 1930s, the US accounted for up to 50% of the factory’s…

According to Bloomberg, we are experiencing economic conditions similar to the 1930s as growth is constrained by companies unwilling to spend, falling inflation expectations and governments backing away from fiscal stimulus.

In this week's Throwback Sundays article, we feature six watches that we reckon have an excellent value proposition.

One of the few popular questions that we have been always been asked would be something along the line of “what is the best watch to get” or “what is a watch that is worth buying”. While we are pretty much happy to answer these questions, but we reckon…

Opinion piece: Citizen's Acquisition of Frederique Constant: Goths at the Gate? As more Swiss watch brands fall under foreign ownership, does Citizen's acquisition of frederique constant herald a new paradigm in watchmaking?

With 800,000 citizens, Rome was arguably the biggest, most influential city in the  mighty Roman Empire. Yet, on August 24, 410, “the eternal city” fell to a horde of Visigoths at the gate and suddenly, the Romans didn’t seem quite so invincible anymore.…

A collector recounts his collecting journey, and how he came to buy the Lange Zeitwerk Striking Time.
