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.

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.
P.S: all pictures are my own

You probably noticed that the title of this review is a bit odd but please try to stay with me. We all know that big brands with big marketing budgets aim to convince many people that they are offering the real thing, it is true that the Rolex Submariner or the Omega S...

One hand watches are a tricky thing, sometimes they are hard to read and sometimes they could be also a bit plain, I mean there is not much to play with, look at Tudor for example, the overall shape is very generic, doesn’t say much but those snowflake hands really do

What is watch collecting? And how many watches you need in order to have a collection? Is a question that I have been asking myself lately. People usually try to have a variety of complications or nuances that make one piece different than the other, for example, I hav...

Everything changes when you grow up, I always remember how good complicated cars and watches made me feel, the first time I looked the photo of a Lamborghini Diablo my heart stopped, it was amazing, I had no idea how fast or how it handled, I just knew that it look awe...

If I had to pick the most useful complication on a wrist watch today it would be the GMT one, having the ability to track a second time zone is more useful that knowing the exact time to boil and egg (sorry chronograph lovers it just is), even if you have no relatives...

Being a watch collector you want to experience everything: a call from your AD telling you the watch that you have been waiting for is ready for collection, a pre-owned  purchase that you consider a bargain and of course, making your own watch, the latter is probably t...

It is a bit odd that not so far ago mechanical watches occupied a big role in precision time keeping, I mean time is essential even more so by todays standards but the peak of mechanical pieces is long gone thanks to atomic clocks and even smaller devices like our smar...

We all know the history of the Royal Oak and how it helped (other ones believed that it saved) the industry for the big bad wolf called quartz. In all honesty the Royal Oak was like anything else seen in the market at the time, a steel square body watch with an integra...

The microbrand world is a large one, I remember when we could count the amount of watch brands out there by memory but now it is just impossible. For consumers and also for brands is a good and a bad thing, the supply of watch parts is high because the demand also is b...

All watches do the same thing or at least the propose is similar which is to tell time, now with the digital era at its best, mechanical watches were relegated to be more of a statement piece or an object to mark an important achievement in life, this is not always a b...
