Event Report - OMEGA X Fratello Watches Speedy Tuesday Event in Bienne

OMEGA Speedmaster Mark III

The Men’s Swiss Chronograph watch makes a great gift for any outdoorsy man, even if he’s a lawyer Monday-Friday and only goes fishing on the weekends. The black rubber watch strap adds to its durability; if you get it wet (it has a water resistance of (330 feet) the rubber will not leave those gross black marks on your wrist. The chronograph watch’s high level of water resistance means that he will not have to worry about getting it wet while swimming, rafting, or participating in other water sports.  Both the red colored second hand and unidirectional elapsed time bezel with Diver’s scale makes this watch fashionable and functional. It is a fun watch that works with casual-wear for playing outside and also complements a suit for the office.

But it’s real and it’s happening on WorldofWatches.com today through Wednesday. And this sale seriously has something for everyone. A great assortment of brands and styles so you can find the sunnies and watch that are meant for you this Spring. I’ve taken the liberty of pairing some together for your convenience.

Smart, Highly Evolved Gifts Of Time…

IWC was founded in 1868 by an American, Florentine Ariosto Jones, in Schaffhausen -the northernmost corner of Switzerland- breathing new life into a town struggling with its industrial development.  In 1888, IWC was one of the first companies to install electricity in its factory providing it with an manufacturing advantage.   In 1944, a fatal error caused the air bombing of IWC Schaffhausen’s manufacturing facility; however the company soon picked up its pieces and by 1957,  Hans Ernst Homberger, the founder’s son added a new wing and purchased more efficient machines to accommodate  the soaring demand for precise mechanical watches. In the mid to late 1960’s, IWC’s decision to embrace the latest quartz technology rather than fearing the demise of its watch company ensured the continuation of its success.  In fact IWC became co founder and shareholder in the “Centre Electronique l”Horlogerie Suisse” (CEH) contributing funds towards the development of the Beta 21 quartz wristwatch movement, which was unveiled at the 1969 Basel Fair,  accounting for 5-6% of the total sale of quartz watches at the time. While the “Quartz Scare” of the 1970’s  intimidated all the other Swiss Watch Companies, 1973 was one of the most successful years for IWC Schaffhausen. However, in 1974 the gold price tripled and the US Dollar fell 40% against the Swiss Franc causing watch export costs to rise by 250%.  Simultaneously Japan had found an even cheaper way to manufacture cheap quartz watches with acceptable precision, and began to flood the watch market world wide.
