WATCH CROWNS AS THINGS OF BEAUTY
Here is background on this release. The “crown” to a watch, whether a Rolex, Tag Heuer, Omega or other luxury watch is an intersection where form meets function. A simple watch, say your garden-variety Timex, will just have a nob. It’s all form. But a grander watch, like a Rolex, Tag Heuer or Omega will have some flair, some design, something to make it an object of beauty. This principle of form AND function, of utility AND beauty is something that one sees again and again in the luxury watches. It’s what makes the timepiece on a wrist both something practical and something beautiful. Of course, the word “crown” comes from Royalty, and if one thinks about it a similar rule applies there. The crown that the monarch wears on his or her head is both form and function. It connotes that he or she is “in charge” of the country (form) and the beauty of it (the gold, silver, gems, and design itself) reaches up to the divine. This double-faceted idea became part of watch design as well.
The post then explains how to appreciate the history of the “crown” when it comes to watches. Interestingly, it also has pointers to high-tech Google and Pinterest searches so that an interested person can browse watch crowns from the comfort of his or her phone or desk.
