Everyone has his standards, and the same value does not apply to everyone.  Watch companies ranking is highly subjective, as it is based on different elements: movement (complications) branding materials decoration/finishings exclusivity/production The five intermix, and in a typical company there are different quantities of every one of them.

The Watchonomicon is the blog of The Watch Manual. It features all the elements that have made the TWM such a great resource for its readers: easy-to-read articles, interesting questions stemming from the constant interaction of the readers, and the same down-to-earth tone that is used through the TWM series of books to explain and entertain without sounding dull or pedantic (or at the very least trying NOT to).

This is not your average watch blog: watch blogs generally present new watches, sometimes because they have an interest into presenting them that goes a lil bit further than the interest of their readers. Nothing wrong here – we all have to pay our electrical bills. But we try to do something different here. We would like to let our readers explore the universe of watches and understand why this model is better than that model, not just showing them both.

And also, to understand what you can do with an old watch. How to entertain and service it, or refurbish and maybe, resell it for a fair value. Or how to wear it to the best. Exactly as our line of books do. So, if you like watches, and you would like to understand watches a bit more, and not just to take a look at them, well – this is the place to be.
