Davosa watches; affordable Swiss made watches

Posted on 1 April 2020 at 3:43 PM

In our blog we often write about watches, watch winders and watch boxes. One of our favorite watch brands is Davosa from Germany. This brand manufactures beautiful watches with Swiss movements at very competitive prices. As a result, a high-quality watch is also in reach for watch enthusiasts who do not want or cannot spend thousands of euros. Davosa watches offer the best in quality, design and finish but are simply cheaper than brands such as Oris, Tag Heuer, Breitling etc etc. Davosa is of course less known in terms of name and reputation, but the brand has made a lot of progress in recent years. The watches are often worn by people who choose the excellent features of the brand, rather than a well-known name from Switzerland. In this blog we will tell you a bit more about Davosa watches and hopefully we can convey our enthusiasm a bit to you.

For the enthusiast of the automatic watch, the German watch brand Davosa is certainly interesting. This brand produces Swiss made watches, with which the quality is guaranteed. A Swiss made watch equals a durable and reliable product and is loved by every watch enthusiast. Davosa watches are not only characterized by the high quality, but also by the beautiful finish. In the collection of Davosa we see both sturdy and modern watches, equipped with high quality Swiss automatic movements. Davosa uses the famous movements from ETA and Valjoux. The brand also offers good value for money, in other words: with this brand you get a lot of watch for your money. Davosa offers all the features that are also found with watch brands with much higher prices.

The Davosa collection consists of several series, including the popular series Ternos and Argonautic. The Davosa Ternos Diver and Davosa Ternos Diver Ceramic watches distinguish themselves because they are waterproof up to two hundred meters. In addition, like all Davosa watches, they are equipped with extremely strong sapphire glass and a screw down bottom. A rotating bezel, luminous indicators and date display make these watches complete. The Davosa Ternos Diver Ceramic watches are also equipped with a ceramic bezel, which is well protected against scratches. Both the case and the watch strap are made of stainless steel, which gives the watches a tough look. This Davosa watch is available with different dial colors such as black, blue, brown and green. The Davosa Ternos Diver Vintage series is characterized by the stylish vintage leather strap and retro appearance. The watches from the Davosa Ternos Black series are waterproof up to five hundred meters and are made of stainless steel and stainless steel PVD. These watches are also equipped with a ceramic bezel. The Davosa Ternos Professional series also houses watches that are waterproof up to five hundred meters. The stainless steel also returns in this series and we see many shades of blue and black.

The Davosa Argonautic watches are also divided into different series. The Davosa Argonautic houses watches with a stainless steel or Nato strap. The watches are equipped with luminous indicators, helium valve and rotating bezel. The watches within this series have a sporty look. The fact that the models are waterproof up to three hundred meters is a big advantage, because you never have to worry about the watertightness. The models in the Davosa Argonautic BG are also waterproof up to three hundred meters and are the icing on the cake with Superluminova. In addition to the series and models mentioned, Davosa has much more to offer, really worth a look!

What are the advantages of buying a watch online?

Posted on 25 March 2020 at 11:24 AM

When you are looking for a good quality watch, you have several options. You can choose to go to a traditional jeweler, but a good webshop is also an interesting option. Of course there are advantages when you choose to visit a jeweler. You can view, feel and fit the watch. You also have human interaction and you can ask for advice to which you will receive an immediate answer. But there are also disadvantages, many jewelers have only a few watch brands available and not the entire collection in stock. Often the prices at jewelers are also higher, because they have to pay for their property, stock, insurance and personnel.

Buying a watch from a reliable webshop has many advantages. You can think of a wide range, competitive prices, fast delivery, professional advice and convenience. When you order online, you have your watch at home within a few days and you do not have to go out.

However, it is important to choose a webshop that has a good reputation. Of course you want to be sure that you actually receive your chosen watch. Also consciously choose a webshop with experience and the necessary "know how". They can assist you in making the right choice and provide you with any requested advice. It is advisable when you choose a particular webshop to read the reviews that are available. That often makes you a lot wiser. You can also take a look at how long a webshop has been selling watches, this often says something about the experience and knowledge of the company.

As a hint, we also want to advise you to buy from an official dealer. An official dealer provides a wide range of watches, competitive prices but also a solution in case of warranty or repair. An official dealer also proves that the brand and webshop cooperate together and has confidence in the webshop. For example, we are an official dealer of brands such as Davosa, Meccaniche Veneziane and Junkers.

As mentioned, a great additional advantage of buying a watch online at a webshop is that the collection is often much more extensive than at a jeweler. In addition, a watch shop will be fully focused on the sale of watches and possibly watch winders, while a jeweler mainly sells jewelery, silver and gold in addition to watches. It is therefore only a small part of the jeweler's range, while the watch is the most important product for the webshop. A wide range in combination with the right advice is ideal in this respect.

A goodweb shop where you can set the right filters gives you the opportunity to choose from a very wide range of watches and at the same time helps you filter the options so that all is easy and clear. You can easily filter whether you are looking for an automatic, mechanical or quartz watch. You can also choose a brand, the desired price range and, for example, the color of the dial or watch strap at a well-arranged webshop. And there are many other options. Ideal, because you end up exactly with the type of watch you are looking for, without having to take a lot of time. This way you can also easily and quickly compare watches and webshops. This is also a great advantage in connection with the price, webshops can offer competitive prices and regular nice discounts. Online you can easily see where you need to be for the best price.

Some people will find it a disadvantage that they cannot view their favorite watch in real life, such as at the jeweler. But if you shop at a good web shop, they will ensure that there are good images and specifications available so you know exactly what you are buying. So you have all the necessary information together and you can therefore filter exactly what appeals to you. If you still have questions, customer service is ready for you. Contact by phone or email is easy and accessible.

If you have found a watch that appeals to you, you will generally want to enjoy it quickly. The advantage of a webshop is that it is "open" for 24 hours, so you can always go online. In addition, a good webshop will ensure fast delivery, so that you receive your purchase at home quickly. When you have selected a reliable webshop, it will ensure that your watch is properly packed and comes with a warranty. This way you can enjoy your purchase with a good feeling.

In short, a webshop has several advantages: it is quick and easy, they generally offer competitive prices and regularly interesting discounts, there is a lot of choice from many different brands and you can always go there.

In our webshop you will find a wide range of watches. We are official dealer of well-known brands and have more than 15 years of experience. In addition, we do our best to offer you the best price. Of course you can pay with your credit card, iDeal, Paypal or simply via online banking. We ship within the BeNeLux via DPD and worldwide you can choose from FedEx or PostNL. Do you have questions? Just ask them, we are happy to help you!

Benson Black Series watch winders

Posted on 19 March 2020 at 9:11 AM

In our blog we write about watches, watch winders and watch boxes. We write about types of watches, for example automatic or mechanical watches, but also about the origin of technology and brands. This time we write about a watch winder brand. Benson, a Dutch brand that has been one of the larger players in watch winders for several years. Globally, the brand has made great strides with good distributors and dealers. In this blog we take a closer look at the popular Black Series watch winders from this brand. Simply because in our opinion they are very interesting and are an absolute must for anyone with one or more automatic watches.

There is only one watch winder brand from the Netherlands that is known worldwide and offers its winding technology through the better jewelers and online shops: Benson Watchwinders. This brand released its famous Black Series watch winders in 2016. After many years of research, design and testing, the Benson watch winders were launched. The success was immediately great. The collection was greatly expanded with various models. Currently, Benson has more than 250 points of sale worldwide where not only watch winders but also watch boxes are sold. The majority of these points of sale are the better jeweler or online specialist in watchwinders, such as Watchwinders.com.

Design

The Benson Black Series watch winders have a modern design and trendy appearance. This is partly due to the rectangular style and clean lines of the watch winders. But also because of the technology that every watch winder contains. This combination gives these watch winders the luxurious and modern look that makes them so popular. The cabinets are made of wood. The door is partly made of glass so you can see the watches well. The watch winder stands on stainless steel feet. This gives an optical floating effect. The Benson Black Series watch winders are available for 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 20 and even 24 automatic watches. As a result, there is always a unit in the collection that is suitable for the real watch enthusiast, regardless of whether he/she has a small or large collection of automatic watches. Extra nice is that each model is available in 4 versions/colors, namely black, white, carbon fiber and macassar. In addition, Benson produces watch winders that are a Limited Edition version. These are limited and a special version. This makes the watch winder easy to place in any interior. The Benson Black Series watch winders are not only functional, about which more later, but also offer a beautiful design that makes them real “eye catchers”.

Technique

The Black Series watch winders from Benson use reliable Japanese motors. These motors are extensively tested for placement in the watch winder. The motors are strong so that they can easily supply any watch with energy, and durable so that the watch winder has a low sound level. This allows you to wind any automatic watch, regardless of brand or model, in these watch winders. Even heavier watches and larger watches. The modern touchscreen allows you to operate each individual rotor and quickly and easily set the direction of rotation and the number of revolutions per day. With the touchscreen you also operate the built-in LED lighting and power winding function. Of course you can turn each rotor on or off individually, so that there are no rotors running that you have not placed a watch on. The LED lighting gives an extra luxurious appearance, but above all a perfect view of the rotating automatic watches.

The watch holder has a built-in spring so that the holder is adjustable for watches with a longer or shorter watch strap. This makes every watch fit on the holder. The watch holder is then clicked into the watch winder so that it is fixed. The watch holder with the watch cannot fall out, as could happen with a watch winder with a cushion as watch holder. Benson has opted for maximum safety when winding the automatic watches. The power winding function and overwind protection are good examples of this. By means of the overwind protection, an automatic watch can never get too much movement. The watch winder functions in a program of rotation, pause, rotation, pause, etc. etc. This simulates natural wrist movement. The spring in the timepiece of the watch is therefore never fully loaded. This is important when winding automatic watches safely.

Functionality

Every watch winder from the Benson Black Series is suitable for any automatic watch. Each rotor can be set individually so that you can choose the direction of rotation and the number of revolutions per day per watch. This makes you flexible and allows one watch to rotate counterclockwise at 900 revolutions per day, and the other watch clockwise at 1500 revolutions per day. You can run certain rotors and stop others via the touchscreen. You don't have to run all rotors at once. You can fully adjust the watch winder to your liking.

As described above, the watch holder is adjustable and suitable for any type of watch. Big, small, short strap or long strap, it doesn't matter. Winding a watch from Breitling, Rolex, Patek, IWC, Tag Heuer, Omega, Oris, Fortis or Meccaniche Veneziane, that is not a problem at all!

The Benson Black Series watch winders have another important advantage. They all have extra storage options for other watches and/or jewelry. This allows you to easily and safely store your entire watch collection and other jewelry in the watch winder. This saves time and you don't lose anything because you keep everything together.

Luxurious finish

The best materials are used for the production of the Benson Black Series watch winders. The case is made of wood, the door contains strong glass and the inside of the watch winder is covered with very soft fabric. This soft fabric protects the watches, so there is no risk of scratches or other damage. The stainless steel legs and flexible watch holders complete the high-quality finish. The watch winders are made entirely by hand. The paint consists of 12 layers, which guarantees an extra beautiful result. When a watch winder is ready, it is fully tested for at least 24 hours before it is packed. Quality is guaranteed by the materials, workmanship and extensive control. The luxurious finish is not limited to just the watch winder itself. Each Benson Black Series watch winder is firmly packed in two strong cardboard boxes with several layers of foam in between for protection. The watch winder comes with a manual, a beautiful certificate and a 2-year warranty.

Luxury watch winder

For some years, the Benson Black Series watch winders have been used by many watch enthusiasts and watch collectors for their automatic watches. These watch winders offer everything you need. Not only in terms of functionality, design and quality. The Black Series watch winders offer a very good price/quality ratio. The prices are considerably lower than comparable brands, while the watch winders offer better quality, functionality and durability. Probably the Benson Black Series watch winders are the most attractive devices in the field of winding watches.

Benson is currently working on a new Limited Edition for her Black Series. The current series Limited Editions in red with black leather and brown with brown leather is almost sold out. Only a few pieces are available. The new Benson Black Series Limited Editions are of course spectacular again. We will reveal the exact details later when we have received more information from this Dutch watch winder brand. But we are sure that these Limited Edition models will be a success again!

Benson Black Series watch boxes

In addition to beautiful watch winders, Benson also produces watch boxes under the Black Series label. The current collection of watch boxes is made of wood and suitable for 8, 12 and 16 watches. These boxes are available in the colors black, white, carbon fiber and macassar. Just like the watch winders. Benson is now working on a new series of watch boxes made entirely of leather. These boxes are expected in stores mid this year.

Conclusion

The Benson brand is well on the way to conquering the world with its watch winders for automatic watches. The watch winders offer a lot of quality, the prices are very interesting and the watch winders have a very chic appearance. In addition, the functionality is significantly better than many other brands. In this year we expect various innovations from Benson. Benson is working hard on a new line of Black Series watch boxes made of leather. In addition, various new Limited Edition watch winders will be released. In short, the Benson watch winders are a lot to look forward to!

Why do I buy a German watch?

Posted on 13 March 2020 at 4:41 PM

You will find many different watch brands in our webshop. Most brands are from Europe, but we also have brands from the United States, Japan or Switzerland. However, most watch brands come from Germany. This country has a good reputation in the field of watches and there are many different brands that make beautiful watches in various price ranges. A German watch stands for quality, reliability and often they are also affordable. These are good reasons to buy a German watch, but are there any other reasons to buy a German watch?

Quality

Anyone who buys a watch would like to be able to wear it for a longer period of time. A watch must be solid and reliable. A watch that is broken within a year is of no use to you. Germany is well regarded in the field of technology, production and finishing. Good examples are car brands such as BMW, Mercedes and Audi. In terms of technology, you can think of Krups, Miele or Mediamarkt. There are also many well-known German brands in the field of watches. Think for example of Iron Annie, Junkers, Fortis, Zeppelin and Davosa. Brands such as Heisse & Söhne and Chronovision are known in the field of watch winders.

The German Gründlichkeit is an important aspect that is reflected in the culture but also in the production of watches. Good materials and a high-quality finish are of great importance in the production process of a German watch. This translates into the quality of the watches from the above brands. During production, checks are made on quality, reliability and finish. Only in this way do the manufacturers ensure that a German watch offers many years of watch pleasure.

Appearance

German watches are not only highly regarded for their excellent quality. They are also a status symbol, as it were, just like a BMW, Mercedes, Audi or a Porsche car. A German watch exudes quality and class. German watch brands used to be a bit boring in design and use of color. However, the Germans have caught up in this area by making design technically more interesting designs. This has resulted in a combination of quality with beautiful designs. This is the combination that a watch enthusiast is looking for. A German watch actually offers everything you could wish for. With a German watch on your wrist you radiate that you have made an informed choice, a conscious choice for quality and design.

Guarantee

Almost all German watches come with a minimum of 2 years warranty. Although a lot of attention has been paid to quality in the production process, it is important to have a good and clear warranty on your watch. In the unlikely event that your watch is defective, you can always appeal to the warranty. In case of a defect, the German watch brand will examine your watch, inform you and then come to a solution. Our experience in general is that German watch brands offer an excellent guarantee and ensure good customer satisfaction.

What is an automatic watch?

Posted on 4 March 2020 at 6:27 PM

In the world of watches there are watches with different types of timepieces, such as quartz, mechanical and automatic timepieces. A quartz watch works with a battery, a mechanical watch must be wound manually by rotating the crown, but what exactly is an automatic watch? The automatic watch is actually the origin of the watch. An automatic watch is equipped with a so-called automatic timepiece. This timepiece is not powered by a battery, but gets its energy from movement. The watch is provided with this required movement by means of the natural movement of the wrist, or at the moment that it is temporarily not worn due to rotation in a watch winder. The watch winder mimics the movement of the wrist, providing the automatic watch with the required energy. The big advantage of an automatic watch is that you never have to replace a battery. The automatic watch has been less popular for a while, when the quartz watch made its advance. Nowadays, however, the automatic watch is very populair. This has everything to do with the technology behind the watch, an automatic watch is assembled by a real craftsman and has a special appearance. The true watch lover will certainly appreciate this.

The automatic watch is also called a self-winding watch. Because the watch is supplied with energy through movement, it is not necessary to wind the watch manually by the crown. This is the case with a mechanical watch. Both do not work on the basis of a battery. In an automatic watch we see the authentic effect of the clock, many enthusiasts and collectors are attracted to automatic watches. There are even automatic watches that have a see-through bottom so that you can see how the watch works. A fascinating sight for the true enthusiast, because it makes the technology behind the watch visible. An automatic watch is made by hand from a real craftsman, a special craft with a long history. A watch with an automatic movement is also very effective and is often produced by the more expensive and Swiss watch brands. You can think of brands such as Breitling, Rolex, Tag Heuer, IWC and Oris. But there are also very good watch brands that make beautiful automatic watches and are less known.

Examples of brands with beautiful, high-quality automatic watches include Fortis, Glycine and Epos. At Epos, for example, but also at brands such as Junkers and Iron Annie, we see automatic watches with the particularly beautiful see-through bottom. Fortis provides beautiful automatic watches, including diving watches, pilot watches and watches from the "Cosmonauts" series. These are standard equipment of the Russian cosmonauts, which says enough about the quality of the watches. Materials such as stainless steel, leather and sapphire glass are used. Certain models are waterproof up to 200 meters. The heart of these watches, or the timepiece, is one of high Swiss quality. Glycine manufactures automatic watches of very high quality in Switzerland. The most famous and popular model of Glycine is the "Airman" watch. A beautiful automatic watch made from the best materials. This model has various additional functionalities, such as date display, luminous indicators, GMT function, rotating bezel and a screw-down crown. Really a top piece of Glycine. The Epos watch brand uses very high-quality automatic Swiss timepieces from the ETA and Sellita brands. It is a brand with a long history that applies traditional techniques in this area, supplemented with today's innovation. These are just a few examples of great brands with high-quality automatic watches. When you choose an automatic watch, invest in a good watch. You get a lot in return!

A good automatic watch that is assembled by a professional can be expensive. Be aware that an automatic watch retains its value and lasts a long time with proper care. A nice automatic watch can therefore be a valuable heirloom. You buy this watch not only for yourself, but also for your offspring. It is important keep the automatic watch safe because this type of timepiece is more sensitive to shocks and bumps than a quartz watch. You will have to maintain the watch, for example by occasionally having a service at the watch brand or a good watch maker.

What we like about an automatic watch is that when you hold the watch next to your ear you hear the timepiece working. This is a beautiful sound. It also reflects the pure craftsmanship that a good automatic watch houses. Take a look at our collection of automatic watches and you will see that different brands in different price ranges offer very nice watches. You don't have to be rich to wear a nice automatic watch.
