10 Reasons EVERYONE Should Own A Watch - Why It's Better Than A Cell Phone To Tell Time & Collect
The Urban Gentry


Published on Jun 26, 2017
In today's video I respond to a comment left on a recent video. A viewer made an excellent point "if cell phones have such accurate time, then what is the point of owning or buying a watch?" So in this video I share my 10 reasons why everyone should consider getting a watch. I directly compare each reason with the use of cell phones and explain why I am extremely optimistic about the future of watches and the hobby of collecting them
.
My ten reasons are as follows:

1. The link to the history of Horology and civilisation.
2. The importance of measuring time and how it unites us all.
3. The refinement in understanding and learning about horology.
4. The culture, hobby and community of collecting watches.
5. The tradition of owning, inheriting and passing down a timepiece.
6. The dependable practicality and functionality of a trusted technology.
7. The investment potential of buying the right watches.
8. The enhancement of ones personal style and complimenting and outfit.
9. A great way to start a conversation and meet people.
10. Marking special occasions, events and associated memories withe watches.

Traser h3 Tritium Watches Review - Novelties from Basel 2017
Long Island Watch


Published on Jul 11, 2017
Today's video will be one of the last focused on Basel new releases. We will go over 5 new releases from Basel 2017, as well as a couple other models in the existing lineup.

Traser Watches, for those that aren't familiar with the brand, is owned by mb-microtec, a Swiss company that manufactures tritium light sources. These watches contain radioactive tritium that make the hands and markers glow without needing to be pre-exposed to light, like Superluminova or Lumibrite. Tritium glows through it's own radioactivity, and will last well over a decade.

To see the traser watch lineup, please visit: https://www.longislandwatch.com/Trase...

How to reset (recalibrate) the hands on a chronograph watch - Watch and Learn #30
Long Island Watch


Published on Jul 7, 2017
In today's episode of Watch and Learn, we will show you how to reset (or re-calibrate) the hands of your quartz chronograph watch. Many times, either after changing the battery, or in transit, the hands do not go back to their proper "zero" positions. Most chronograph movements have a method you can use to put the hands back in their proper positions.

Save yourself some frustration and possibly a trip to the jewelry store by watching this quick video.

Please visit our store at www.longislandwatch.com to see the watches shown in this video, and view our entire selection.

7 Watches Under $500 That Will Double In Value - What Increases Their Worth? (WWT#84)
The Urban Gentry


Published on Jul 11, 2017
In today's WWT (Wrist Watch Talk) episode, I take a look at 7 watches currently under $500 that are either in the process of, or I predict will double in value over the coming years. In doing so, I highlight key determining factors which increase the demand and value of a watch.
Among my choices in this video are, the current trend for 1950s manual wind Omega watches. The iconic movie star that is the Seiko Ripley SCED035. A classic 60s "Made In Britain" annual wind Timex. Rare Japanese market special editions of the Casio G-Shock Riseman GW-9400BJ-1JF and vintage digital casio watches. Pop culture or artist themed Swatch watches from the 80s and 90s. And lastly, the Marina Militare's automatic dive watch of choice, the Citizen Promaster NY0040.

The Perfect Everyday Automatic Chronograph? - Fortis Classic Cosmonauts Ceramic PM Review
The Urban Gentry


Published on Jul 13, 2017
Fortis has history unlike any other and today we take a look at another important watch from their Cosmonautis line. Fortis is also, without a doubt, one of the most underrated but massively horoligicaly important Swiss watch brands too. The predecessors of this Cosmonaut chronograph 401.26.11 have been used in over 50 space missions and are still is worn on the International Space Station. When it comes to attention to detail, performance and reliability, the Russian Space Agency for over 20 years chose Fortis as their official watchmaker. Today we understand why. With it's rich heritage, classic Rolex Daytona meets Omega Speedmaster styled design, modest pricing and outstanding quality, it could quite be one of the best everyday automatic chronographs in it's price range.
