I’m a sucker for a well designed watch and I’m especially in awe of the mechanics that go in such a small package to keep (in most cases) very accurate time. It’s amazing how much much innovation there has been even over the last 50 years.
The Watch Gallery put together an amazing timeline on the “evolution” of luxury watch brands. I had no idea that Blancpain had the bragging rights of being the oldest luxury watch brand in the world (established in 1735!). Another revelation for a lot of people will be to see Bell & Ross being a baby at only 21 years old (founded 1992) compared to the heavy weight titans like Omega (1848) and IWC (1868).
