It has been an incredible year here at ATimelyPerspective. As a family run company, we were thrilled to have watch collectors join us with guest columns throughout the year. We were lucky enough to travel to all ends of the Earth to bring you- our loyal readers – great insight into timepieces and brands. From Iceland to South Africa, from Geneva to New York — it has been an exciting year of adventure and learning.
This year we posted 298 articles — and top stories included interviews with Derek Jeter (read more here) and Susan Sarandon (read more here) about what time means to them. We found that you were interested in brands that do the right thing, as evidenced by the popularity of our article on Chopard’s Fair-Mined Gold Tourbillon. We saw you were also interested in Hollywood thanks to your response to articles such as Hamilton’s involvement with Intersteller here, and to the interview with actor Nadir Hasan here.
Brands you loved most included the creative independents such as MB&F (with the most viewed article about them here) , Armin Strom and Arnold & Son (again, with the most viewed article here). As to the big brands, the most-read stories were about Audemars Piguet (Royal Oak), Jaeger-LeCoultre (Geophysic) , Chopard (Fair Mined Gold), Montblanc and Patek Philippe (anniversary watches).We indulged in a month of coverage about international football and dedicated several weeks to other specialty subjects, including the rise of German watch brands.
Atimelyperspective has grown to be a force in the online community wherein one can find informative, accurate, journalistic reporting on the watch world. This past year we delivered articles on new products, watch education, behind-the-scenes factory tours, interviews and more. We have thousands of avid followers reading us week after week, with more than a dozen stories read at each visit. We have great guest writers, including readers and collectors, and continue to seek the stories no one else can bring to light – thanks to our 30+ years of experience in watch journalism. In all, it has been a productive and enjoyable year. Thank you.
