Robbie and Watches

Reviews and photos from beautiful timepieces

Welcome to Robbie & Watches. when I started this project my idea was to learn about watches in general but I ended up falling for photography and horology, not a bad combination. Please ask me any questions about any watch (not only the ones featured here) I will try do my best to help. I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do.

About

Why watches?

What fascinates you? For me, it’s watches and photography (mostly watches), that feeling of  taking an incredible picture of a truly unique object brings me great satisfaction.
I have seen many watch blogs and I am sure that almost all of them have a different view on the watch industry, here is my position:
I love all kinds of watches, people seem fixated with Pateks, AP, Vacherons . One day I hope to have the privilege to review incredible brands like these but it wouldn't make me love watches more than I do now, this blog is not to show off how much I spend on watches or what is a good/bad watch, this site is about what an average Joe thinks about a mid range/high end pieces and hopefully take a beautiful photo of it. I hope you can relate and enjoy this little project.

I am a sucker for field watches, there I said it. Every tool watch has an specific requirement, in dive watches is the ISO certification, for pilot watches is legibility and for field watches everything is focused in toughness trying to make the watch as simple and leg...

There are many trends going around in the watch world, as mentioned in previous articles the trend  big watches might disappear (for a bit) giving some space to the vintage scene. Why are vintage watches so popular? Is it the history that they represent or is it the no...

Heritage and tradition are words that feel sacred in watchmaking, weather you are a journalist, a collector or a watchmaker, these 2 words aren't questioned very often, I believe this is why is so hard for any watch brand to really stand out, this kind of approach can...

Before we all went diving, flying and racing, watches were considered a piece of jewelry to complement an outfit. In the case of chronographs the history is completely backwards, they were never intended to use while raising your glass on a fancy dinner, but you know w...

Movies and watches go hand and hand, I am as much a movie fan as I am a watch fan so when you combined both for me it is something I cannot resist. From the Heuer Monaco in the movie Le mans to the Hamilton Khaki on Interstellar, watches are usually placed by a marketi...

When I started receiving microbrands for review I saw a common trend that I wasn’t expecting, some of the watch companies where based in the Netherlands, there is a great watch heritage in this country with brands like Grönefeld and Christiaan van der Klaauw, you do no...

We always hear people like Jean Claude Biver saying that mechanical watchmaking is an art, to me and to many watch enthusiast this as true as anything but the word ''mechanical'' makes the above statement harder to digest, let me explain. I do agree that there is an ar...
