Through out time and more recently in the new 20th century the art of watch making has become not only a creative form of art but quite uniquely an intrinsic expression. The role Man has had to play in this is very special and carries an immense amount of responsibility and governance August Berg.
The creative love and desire to fashion a well worked time piece is more about imagination and endeavor than its mechanical parts, although these have an instrumental part to play as well. The original thought which conveys this in to a unique and bespoke object is special in itself, design and presence being an end result of this process. Some of the major time pieces have been designed for men and it is the watches for men ethos which drives ahead the passion and motivation to innovate very special items.
Watch innovation engenders the very best in horology and from this some of the greatest horologists have become famous. The major brands such as Rolex, Omega, and Seiko cater for entirely different markets yet each with their own psyche conjure the ultimate in watch design. Watches take on their own personality and represent the inner soul, they are a mirror to our feelings, a demonstration of our personality, and they convey belief, presence and above all an aesthetic individual quality.
The physical entity of a watch can be made from the most fabulous of materials, traditional styles using gold and silver. Today some very creative man made materials are utilised, more recently the use of ceramics has become very prevalent. The incorporation of gemstones in to watch designs such as diamonds lends itself more towards ostentation yet appealing to a particular group of people.
So watches are everything to everyone, basic models, creative technology as well as gold encrusted specimens are available for purchase. The choice of a watch is a personal one and merits a selective appeal which only the person choosing can I believe truly understand. Watches as with other personal items in my opinion are individual and will always remain special.
