The Citizen watch is, by certain standards, the most popular time piece in the world today. But Citizen wasn’t always Citizen. Long before that it was the Shokasha Watch Research Institute, which took shape in 1918. Analog watches are simply watches with moving hands. A digital watch is a watch with a small LED or LCD screen that displays the time in a digital format. Analog watches are considered to be somewhat more elegant and dressy, as well as traditional.

Another Rolex I really love is the GMT-Master (named for Greenwich Mean Time). They were designed in collaboration with Pan Am for pilots on long haul flights to manage multiple timezones. The “Root Beer” colorway was really popular in the 1970s and continues to be a hot collector’s item (above is a 1979), but the original design featured a red and blue bezel, a.k.a. “The Pepsi Dial”. The almost entire Fine Watch Making Collection can only be seen here and in the case that a watch is available, in two or three different colours of gold, or platinum, the various versions are here, ready to be seen and checked out.

I got interested in pocket watches from working on mechanical things. I had an old car, and working on it gave me immediate satisfaction. It’s a thrill to fix something and get it to run. But I realized that keeping an old car in San Francisco wasn’t the most efficient thing to do, so I guess pockets watches became a substitute. From pocket watches I moved into wristwatches. Pocket watches are still my primary interest, but I love classic wristwatches , like old Rolex Bubblebacks and things like that. This Hamilton Coronado from 1937 is an Art Deco masterpiece. It features 14K white gold, black enamel, and blued steel hands.
