Summer’s Over, Back To School – Letter From The Editor

Summer’s Over, Back To School – Letter From The Editor

Summer’s over and it’s back to the same old thing. Over the previous weeks, we have distributed somewhat less, and that was not only because of the diminished number of information and press delivers that we got from watch brands. Our group has enjoyed their mid year holidays, and not surprisingly, after the late spring, travel season begins. Travel season? Indeed, I’ll educate more regarding that, and about the columnist extraordinaire who wrote a four section history of the Submariner for you, and more. 

Women’s Watch Wednesday

But most importantly, I need to look back at the main articles about lady’s watches that we began distributing as of July. Once like clockwork, we ran an article about women’s watches , wrote down by non-other than Roberta Naas . According to Google Analytics approx. 8% of our readership is of the more attractive sex, and we as a whole hope that they will appreciate and enjoy that we began giving some consideration to lady’s watches, as in the whole online world it’s primarily about men’s watches. It may also assist our male readers with finding a pleasant watch for their sweethearts, spouses, little girls, and mothers. What’s more, definitely, do tell us your opinion about the Monochrome interpretation of women’s watches!

Travel Season

Brice enjoyed his holidays, thus did Xavier, and Robin. Tom, well he’s sort of a computerized nomad, so we could say he’s on a perpetual holiday. So now begins the movement season. Indeed, that’s what we call it. As of the finish of August, our timetables are loaded up with lots of excursions, and Brice is the first of the group to leave the office and he’s heading towards the Swiss mountains. Not to visit any make this time, however to take part in the Passione Engadina . This is a convention with classic Italian vehicles that leads through the Swiss Alps, on some of the world’s most lovely mountain roads. That’s right, horrible for him! Have confidence, he will share everything here on Monochrome.

In the coming two months I’ll be visiting Spa Francorchamps, Florence, Milan, the Historical Grand Prix in Zandvoort, Netherlands, and some spot far away in the Rocky Mountains. Furthermore, there will be more excursions, since we will also be visiting a few manufactures in Switzerland, and we’ll cover that with videos for you. Lots of voyaging, and we’ll update you as often as possible through our social media channels!

Rolex Submariner History

When you’re a regular reader of Monochrome, you probably know that we’re not covering vintage consistently. Truth is that although we love vintage, we’re no vintage specialists. So we’re looking for some assistance in that department. For the time being, we found Paul Alteri, columnist extraordinaire for the occasion, willing to compose a four-section history of the Rolex Submariner. Some of you may know his name; Paul is the man behind Bob’s Watches. Typically we do not acknowledge articles from others than our own group. What’s more, no, this isn’t sponsored content. It’s essentially that when I began finding out about watches, the Bob’s Watches site used to be one of the couple of pleasant spots where I could drool all over wonderful watches, and become familiar with some things. So when Paul sent me that he had simply acquired “the missing link” I was in wonder. An icon, an unbelievable watch, and he found one i that is in a very good condition! I requested that Paul do a four-section review on the principal Submariners and I’m glad to say that he accepted.

As of this afternoon, we’ll start with section 1, and when you do not know about the watch above, the “missing link” you can find out about it. Tomorrow afternoon section 2 (after my Piaget Altiplano survey in the morning), and section 3 and 4 will be distributed on Saturday and Sunday.

Hope you like it however much I do. Have a great time perusing, and in the event that you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate… comments below, and question by means of the form over here . Much obliged so much!
