Eterna Time Classics…

It got me to thinking as we looked back on both last year’s results and on our World of Watches 20 year history, that in literature there tends to be a lot of anti-heroes too.  In an age where technology evolves faster and faster, and people line up at retailers to get new consumer electronic releases days before they are available, what would the watch industry’s true anti-hero be?

At 17, I was discovering the Smiths and R.E.M.  I wore t-shirts with sport coats, my dad’s hand-me-down wingtips along with pinned and rolled jeans.  My hair may have been a little pompadore-y.  I’m DANIELWELLINGTON-0209DWsure I was wearing a hand-me-down bracelet Seiko or Citizen as well, but if I had any idea what I was doing back then, it likely should have been something more like this Daniel Wellington timepiece. A  smart watch would have been incredibly ironic for me and I hope my teenage self would been astute enough to recognize that. Although youth being what it is, maybe not.  Unfortunately, I was not spending “warm summer nights on the Village Green”…so advantage Sinatra.

Longiness LA Grande Classique

The Swiss Legend World Timer is an excellent choice.
