Best of Horological 2011!

As we are just mere hours away from the apocalyptical 2012, it is time for inevitable Best of list. Chosen by us, the WatchAllure crew, this is not a ranked list, but the selection of the Top 11 most interesting watches seen on WatchAllure in the past year. It was a hard job, with so many magnificent […]

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Best wishes from  WatchAllure crew!    

Xmas Light Show: Angular Momentum Glowing Urushi

For the end of this exciting year, I present you a watch from one of my most favorite independent watch brands, the etherical Angular Momentum. This rather obscure Bern based independent manufacture might sound like a strange choice for the favorite brand, but only to those who never saw some of theirs watches. Roughly divided […]

Aquadive Bathyscaphe 100 DLC

As 2012 is slowly creeping toward us, and various brands and manufactures are hurriedly preparing to start the next year with a bang in SIHH, the news is getting scarcer and scarcer. However, there are some who pay no heed to such conventions so today we have the pleasure of presenting you the recently revived […]

A breath of fresh air: Hublot King Power Unico GMT

A week is not a week without Hublot, don’t you think? But wait, since the 2011 Formula 1 season finished in November in Brazil, and there are still three more months till the next season, what could Hublot possibly show us? Puzzling, I know. Don’t worry that’s where we come in. Amazingly, this time, Hublot […]

ArtyA says Bye Bye Euro

Remember when I debated if watches should be considered art? Yea, I know it is a topic featured in my every other article, but in this one, in particular, I noticed one aspect of timekeeping objects in general that was, up until now, thought to be impossible to incorporate into a watch. That missing aspect […]

Movado Red Label Calendomatic

For the end of this week, we will descent from the dizzying heights of the haute horlogerie for a quick look at something more accessible to the average human being. Would you believe this is our first article about Movado? Neither could I. Surely, this occasion deserves an introduction! And what better introduction than a […]

Sander Mulder Continues Time

And now, something completely different. Watch Allure is a web magazine solely dedicated to wristwatches, right? Indeed. Oh well. Primarily. We are no strangers to time keeping objects a bit larger than life that, and no cool horological device can escape our watchful, scrutinous eyes. Allow me to present to you one immensely groovy clock […]

Have you seen THE OWNER of this watch?

With Christmas just around the corner, the Watch Allure crew got its chance to do (at least) one good deed before this year ends. Earlier this day we got an email from the kind people of our (ahem, mine) favorite haute horlogerie manufacture, the esteemed Vacheron Constantin, asking us kindly to help in their search […]

The Only Way is Up: A. Lange & Sohne Datograph AUF/AB

Glashütte. Probably, the best known watchmaker’s spot outside the Vallée de Joux, and definitely the German watchmaking epicenter. Saxony, a state province of Germany famous for their wonderful medieval castles and eternal art collections enclosed within, is a home for this horology Mecca and all the German brands worth knowing about have their own castles […]
