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. We'd very much appreciate your support by visiting the websites of our sponsors.
On behalf of the Watchuseek team, I wish you a pleasant and informative stay!
Brothers Bart and Tim Grönefeld, shown here in front of the Baselworld halls, are among our former dear leader Ernie Romers' favourite independent watchmakers, and they’ve certainly got the right idea when it comes to press releases.
Watchmakers will go to the ends of the earth and back to bring you rare and exotic concepts for the watch you wear. None more so than highly regarded independent watchmakers DeBethune. This time they have combed the ancient lands of South America to bring you Quetzalcoatl, which, as you will know, is a composite name in the Nahuatl* language derived from quetzalli and used to describe the large, precious green feathers of the sacred quetzal bird; and coatl, meaning snake.
You learn something new every day. Apparently Montres duManège is the only Swiss brand of watches to display the name La Chaux-de-Fonds on its dials. Now the brand is launching a timepiece in the lounge of the Hotel Ramada, on the plaza in front of Baselworld.
First introduced in 1962, Eterna Super KonTiki, the first diver's watch with a rotating bezel, is being revived with several new models, including the Black edition, limited to 888 watches. When Eterna developed its first KonTiki models back in 1958 to commemorate Thor Heyerdahl’s famous expedition across the Pacific, the watch line rapidly established itself as a benchmark for extreme sportiness, absolute reliability and precision. It has remained so to this day, almost five decades on.
The new Adventic GMT from Eterna will be one of the watches to look out for at Baselworld this year. Not because it’s a high-end novelty, but because it’s a contemporary timepiece that doesn’t need to resort to unnecessary gimmickry, which in itself is kind of refreshing. It runs on the Eterna in-house 3914A caliber.
Arnold & Son unveils the TBTE Tourbillon, featuring the hand-finished A&S8503 calibre with True Beat Seconds complication. This timepiece forms part of the Royal Collection which combines classic styling with leading-edge technology.
Motor racing heritage is full of extraordinary stories, but the pioneering Grand Prix races of the early 20th century rank among the most exhilarating and courageous in the sport’s history. This is the premise for Christopher Ward to celebrate this exciting period by expanding their Motorsport collection with 4 new COSC-certified chronometers designed to celebrate the winning drivers from the inaugural Grand Prix races in France (1906), Italy (1921), Belgium (1925) and Great Britain (1926).
Baselworld is the biggest, brightest and boldest of all the watch exhibitions around the world. It attracts scores of watch connoisseurs, horology loving celebrities, watchmakers, watch brand head honchos and of course the army of watch media who daily congregate in the Media Centre armed with laptops, smart phones, iPads and more than a sprinkling of Smart Watches.
With its perfectly choreographed dance of six retrograde hands, the TNT Royal is an endless source of fascination. Not content with staging a complication that is unique in the world, it now explores the field of futuristic materials by introducing a bezel in itr²®. This totally hypoallergenic composite material is six times lighter than steel and four times lighter than titanium.
The MB&F M.A.D. Gallery presents a remarkable collection of “Mechanical Entomology” featuring insect-inspired sculptures by four talented artists hailing from both sides of the Atlantic.
