Q: If I can’t spend more than $5,000 on a mechanical watch, should I buy a new timepiece or a vintage one. What if I up my investment to $10,000. A: The first step in buying a watch—on any budget—is research. One advantage of modern watches is that they reflect cutting-edge mechanical timekeeping.
If you have visited watch fairs and seen various exhibitions organized by the FHH, you have more than likely seen work he has curated but didn’t know it. Thus, it should not come as a huge surprise that Fléchon would author such a comprehensive... Likely the most comprehensive historical watch book ever written, this 456-page tome on the history of watchmaking almost reads like a story – an entertaining historical novel imparting myriad culture.

Your desktop computer or laptop, your mobile phone, the fitness tracker you’re still wearing after a morning run earlier and the ol’ analog watch on the other wrist – time, in its most essential form, has never been more present. In a fast-evolving new space, digital devices from smartwatches to fitness bands and activity trackers are becoming "life companions" – recording, interpreting and feeding back on your most basic daily functions, and in the process becoming more... Is the inevitable consequence of this development that our traditional methods of time-telling will become quaint, possibly obsolete oddities. The Apple Watch release has been merely the most high-profile among a flood of new entrants into the field of smartwatches, from the traditional players through to tech firms, consumer electronics companies and health and fitness brands, such as... According to Morley, health and fitness trackers are seeing "mass adoption", with Australian sales growth of 132 per cent. Australians, he points out, are now the largest market in the world per capita for connected health and fitness devices, while the category as a whole is on track to become the fifth-largest consumer durable in the world by sales volume by the.
