Ich schreibe gern eigene Geschichten über Uhren. Mehr Erfahrungen, als Details über Technik, Mechanik. Die begeistert mich zwar auch, aber ich denke, dass es hier andere Quellen gibt, die auf Spezifikationen von Uhren eingehen. In english: I like to write my own stories about watches. More experiences than details about technology and mechanics. That excites me too, but I think there are other sources here that go into the specifications of watches.

Schools remove analogue clocks from exam rooms.

Schools are removing analogue clocks from exam rooms because teenagers cannot tell the time, a representative of the UK teachers’ union has said. Teachers are now installing digital clocks after students complained in their GCSE and A-level exams that they had difficulty reading the correct time on an analogue clock. Malcolm Trobe, deputy general secretary of the Association of School...

Baselworld 2018 – III Summary in pictures and videos

Frank Jutzi - Tischuhr mt ewigem Kalender

Video von der Baselworld 2018 I would like to note that I took all the photos and pictures myself, originally without the plan to start a blog. That’s why the quality is very “authentic”. For this reason, I have summarised all the films into one without further ado, because this gives you a good impression of everything that can be...

Baselworld 2018 – II, Big Brands and Challenges

Baselworld: Big Brands, Breitling, Rolex, Tag Heuer, Glashütte Original and curious luxury pieces After visiting the AHCI stand at this year’s Baselworld and other independent watchmakers, I ended up in the Big Brands hall. One is, yes once again, blown away. I’m a big fan of (Tag) Heuer, especially from the years 1960-1980, and right at the entrance I find...

Deep Space Nine von Vianney Halter

What is Haute Horlogerie and what does it have to do with the quartz crisis? Literally translated “Haute Horlogerie” means high (art of) watchmaking. The term emerged in the 1970s during the quartz crisis. Another term like that. In the 1970s, more and more watches were being made that kept time much better, i.e. more accurately, than the mechanical watches...

Baselworld, Independent Watchmakers

Breitling Super Ocean aus den 60ern

My view of Baselword This year I made it to Switzerland for Baselworld, one of the most important watch fairs in the world. It’s my first visit to the fair and, as always, my very own take on the spectacle. That means I don’t write about audience numbers, which manufacturers won’t be at Baselworld 2019 and internal watch industry stuff....

Uhren Technik Börse Munich – my experience

As a watch fan and newbie blogger, you have to hang around at some trade fairs and industry events. So I went to the Uhren Technik Börse in Munich/Unterschleissheim for the first time, the Euro Watch Fair. Or Uhren Technik Börse, or Euro Watch Fair. As I said, my first time. With that in mind, here’s my experience report on...

Heuer Autavia 3646 Andretti

Heuer Autavia 3646 third execution A vintage Heuer Autavia 3646 as a “bad buy”? This could be a contribution under the motto: How do I start collecting watches? You learn. Those who chase old things know that it can be like a fever, a chase, excitement, emotion, excitement and joy. Failure is also possible. One knows little about old watches,...
