Memorial Day is a Remembrance of Our Fallen Heroes

 |  May 30th, 2016

Memorial Day — it is a time to celebrate our fallen heroes — those who fought for our country and died. I have lost many people in my life — parents, siblings, friends and more — and i visit the cemetery regularly with flowers to honor them. On Memorial Day weekend, though, when I go  to place flags on my father’s grave (he was a Marine in World War II) and on my uncle’s grave (he was in the army during World War II), I am always struck by the beauty of the vast number of American Flags waving and standing tall — making the graves of so many brave who served in our armed forces, and died, fighting  for our freedom.…

Finally, In Stores Now: Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Calendar and Classic Watches

 |  May 27th, 2016

Four score and five years ago the horological manufacture Jaeger-LeCoutre produced what would be one of the most iconic watches in the industry: the Reverso. One of the first true sports watches, the piece was originally designed for Polo players in  1931. The watch dial side would face up when worn recreationally, but when it came to game time, the Polo player could easily reverse the dial side down for protection. Over the years the duality of the Reverso has received creative treatment from the manufacturer,  and has seen designs ranging from engraving, to gem-setting, enameling, and high-watchmaking complications on both sides of the watch. To commemorate the 85th anniversary of the watch’s birth, Jaeger-LeCoutre has unveiled a host of new expressions this year, but…
