The Rise of Digital in Swiss Watches- Watch Repair

Watch Repair

Watch Repair

The reign of the digital watch started in the early 80’s, after technology improved and lowered the cost for a digital display watch. These low priced LED or LCD watches became so popular that many luxury Swiss timepiece brands saw sales decline dramatically and even a few brands went out of business. It was not until the late 80’s that digital watches lost much of their popularity and Swiss retook the throne. It is no wonder many Swiss brands have shunned digital and rarely incorporate digital display into their watches. (It is important to note that these high end luxury brands will likely not have full digital displays, instead they will only have small digital displays with classic displays.) Watch Repair.

Lately it seems some Swiss brands have buried the hatchet and are starting to warm to digital displays. Breitling one of the top Swiss brands has really embraced digital and has many models that incorporate some form of digital into their displays. Some of Breitling’s most popular collections feature watches with digital dials such as: Breitling Aerospace Avantage, Breitling Airwolf, Breitling Emergency and Breitling Co-pilot.

TAG Heuer also has partial digital displays and even has one watch collection that has an all digital dial (TAG Heuer Microtimer). Having an all digital dial may not seem like such a big deal but it is quite rare for a high end Swiss watchmaker to have a watch with a full digital dial. TAG Heuer has quite a few partially digital dial watches: TAG Heuer F1 Chronotimer, TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty Nine and the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Chronotimer. My favorite would have to be the TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty Nine that has a really unique look with its large rectangle swivel case, mechanical and quartz movement.

Tag Heuer Carrera Featured In Inception!- Jewelry Appraisal

Jewelry Appraisal

Jewelry Appraisal

Christopher Nolan’s Inception is one of this summers biggest blockbusters, successfully incorporating visual, emotional and intellectual elements to create a masterpiece.  As I was watching Inception I was struck by the sleek style of the characters and could not help but notice the amazing timepieces strapped to their wrists. During one of the opening scenes we see  a close up of Leonardo DiCaprio’s watch, the Tag Heuer Carrera model number WV211B.BA0787. This beautiful watch with a stainless steel band, black dial and diamond shaped hands has many close up shots where you can see the Tag Heuer logo and “automatic” on the rich black dial.

The Tag Heuer Carrera was introduced in 1963 and designed by Jack Heuer. The Carrera was meant to have a simple yet elegant design, with only the registers and applied markers on the dial. These early Carreras were available with a variety of dials but the most popular were all-white or all-black.  Many of today’s Carreras have chronograph features and have sacrificed simplicity for a more modern industrial look. The model featured in Inception is a return to the vintage Carreras  of the past and complements DiCaprio’s style in the movie. Jewelry appraisal.

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Tag Heuer’s brand ambassadors and this is the reason for the Carrera making an appearance on the big screen.  You don’t have to be a movie star to have the movie star look, just take a look at our website for the latest watches at the lowest prices.
