TICK TOK!

In my hunt for a new timepiece I have found some gorgeous watches (and at many price points)! Here are some of the chic standouts.

But first, get a load of some “Then & Now” print advertisements for watches… my how times (pun intended) have changed!


Then: Teach him the value of time, states this 1900s ad from Dueber-Hampden Watches.


Now: Want to be Brad Pitt? Where this Tag watch!


Then: Domestic animals sell Benrus watches, in an ad circa 1960.

Now: Wild animals help sell Cartier watches.

Then: Prim and proper is the pitch for Harvel Watch Company’s ad from the 1940s.

Now: Sharon Stone in a Dior ad for Christal Watches. She knows sex sells!

Now some chic watches… Enjoy!

    My father's father started the Harvel Watch Company. What a pleasant surprise to find a copy of a Harvel Watch ad online – thank you!
