Watch you seek is Watch you get!
Welcome to Watchuseek! We have the largest collection of horological links, links to all known watch manufacturers, lots of interesting unofficial and official watch forums and a nice collection of fine watches & accessories.

On behalf of the Watchuseek team, I wish you a pleasant and informative stay!
The Swiss fascination with the art of fine horology is well known, yet there is an equally age-old Swiss tradition regarding the creation of mimetic mechanical objects of art that imitate nature, thus blurring the dividing lines between artistic creativity and life itself.
Hublot presents the first tourbillon in the new Big Bang line. With its new case (unveiled in 2013), the watch features a skeleton movement and an added power reserve indicator function on the dial side.
The first major horological event of the year kicks off Monday January 19 at Palexpo in Geneva. The Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) is celebrating its quarter century this year. It started in 1991, when exhibitors took the decision to stage an exclusive fair, reserved for watchmaking professionals.
Fans of CLERC will be happy to note that we have secured an appointment with the brand at SIHH next week. Of course on show will be the CLERC Hydroscaph collection – described by the brand as the most powerful Swiss luxury dive watches ever created, but also combined with fun a technical prowess.
Those two much treasured words ‘Swiss Made’ are about to become a cost which for some manufactures may be too much to bear.

If you are not one of those who are helping to put the ‘Rich’ in Richemont, then the glittering haute horology fest that is next week’s SIHH will hold little for you save to gaze through the cold and frosty glass of your computer screen as the great and good get to try on all the latest dazzling and priceless novelties.
Hublot first unveiled its celebrated Magic Gold - still the only scratch-resistant gold – three years ago. It is certified as 18 carats by the Central Office for Precious Metals Control, and developed by Hublot in Switzerland in cooperation with EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology).
Playing James Bond has not always been kind to actors after they are no longer first choice for a license to kill, but Pierce Brosnan had plenty of acting variety under his belt prior to playing Bond, and has continued to broaden his repertoire post Bond, with a mix of romantic comedies, thrillers, dramas and even an excellent Western in Seraphim Falls with Liam Neeson. Check it out on Netflix. He has successfully escaped typecasting and remains one of the most watchable stars in Hollywood. In 2015 alone Pierce will appear on cinema screens in The Moon and the Sun, It, Last Man Out and Survivor.
