We here at Matt Baily like to think we have a knack for finding cool and up and coming brands. We like to stay ahead of the curve and seek out interesting marques before they hit it big, so that we can be on the ground floor to help them develop. We also pride ourselves on exclusivity. So when we were tipped off about an interesting Hong-Kong based brand called Ancon producing cool and affordable bronze watches, we thought we’d check them out and see what was up.

"An American Brand." Hamilton's moniker is derived from their origin as an important watch manufacturer in the United States, but also stipulates the look and feel of their timepieces. A classic, retro design is common amongst Hamilton watches and reflects the company's strength in the fifties and sixties, when Hamilton was a household name. Highlighting this distinct personality over the past few years has helped the brand return to notoriety, but this time all over the world. At Baselworld 2010, the new models that were displayed at the Hamilton booth varied considerably in style. Some round, some asymmetrical, some even digital. All, however, portray an authentic and clear connection to some aspect of the brand's storied past.

In today's review I'll be showcasing not one, not two, but three Rolex Submariner Dates that we have in stock. This hat trick is perfect because we have a cross section of the line - the stainless steel, the steel and gold (two tone), and the solid gold models. So enjoy my extended presentation of the Rolex Sub trio. - JC

In recent years we in the watch industry have seen an explosion of popularity in one sector of the market – vintage watches. In the last 20 years vintage watches have been steadily rising in value, and demand is getting stronger each year. You can see the influence of this demand in the new watch market, with almost every major company making re-editions of classic designs or retro-themed timepieces that attempt to capture the stylistic essence of vintage models. Vintage, it seems, is the in thing – not just in watches, but also in cars, clothing, music, furniture… Every part of the market seems to be under the influence of old-world design.
