Todd & Marlon are the names of the two gentlemen who initiated this boutique watchmaking company. They are two inseparable brothers with passion for beauty, elegance and luxury. Their style transcends time, they are young and modern, but they do also appreciate tradition and classical elegance. They ultimately bridge the sophistication of the past with the contemporary daring elegance.
Todd & Marlon brand logo is a visual translation of their unique concept and style. The font chosen is very classical and sophisticated, and the elegant typeface used for the ampersand represents the complexity of craftsmanship and the watch movements. The modern and stylized shield, a well-recognized symbol of strength, honor and authority, represents the initials of Todd & Marlon.
Let’s clarify straight away: there is not a specific way to wear a wristwatch like a pro. There exist some arbitrary guidelines about the way to best wear a wristwatch, but every outlet or person will give you his/her own version. Some directions are consistent, others might get you lost. You might wear it on the left or right hand, loose or tight, under or on top of the shirt sleeve… everyone has his/her own philosophy. However, there are a couple of things to take in consideration when wearing a wristwatch.
Our life is regulated by the passage of time, and in particular by the alternance of day and night. This rhythm of about 24 hours, that we take for granted, does control the life of many living beings, including animals and plants, and it is also called circadian rhythm. Circadian comes from Latin and it means “about” (circa) “a day” (diem), that’s because the rhythm in discussion is not always precisely 24 hours but it might vary a bit. But how does it affect us and how watches can help us?
There are only few people that have been able to transcend appeal across generations and across geographies. Dean Martin is one of the few. Everybody loves the incredible multi-talented performer, able to act, sing, entertain and much more. But this justifies only in part is incredible success. He was the King of Cool, as defined by the King of Rock Elvis Presley, and this is what set him apart from the others… and what about his style?
During the last few years we have seen quite some excitement and interest around the 24 hour watches. New brands successfully entered the market (e.g. Slow Watches) and other more established brands (e.g. Botta Design) have benefited from the trend. The offer dramatically increased both in terms of design, features and also price range. However, despite this dynamic, the offer in terms of movements for 24 hour watches did not dramatically change, and all the most common brands use the same movements.
We did look into the offer made by the most sold 24 hour watch brands and models (Slow Watches, Raketa, Glycine, No Watch, Botta Design, Fortis, Messerschmitt, Akerfalk…) and what we discovered is quite surprising!
The most common watches leverage three hands of different shape or size to measures the passage of time. The three hands indicate the hour, minutes and seconds. However, there exist many other variations that can help measuring time in different ways (e.g. stopwatches).
Among those different types of watches there is one that is very peculiar, the single hand watch. As the name says, this watch has only one hand to measure the passage of time and it generally indicates the hour, but why are they so famous?
Following the rousing success of the first Annual Member Appreciation Night, the Public Relation Society of America (PRSA) NJ held their Summer HOT List event at Patria Latin Bistro on May 10th 2018.
The "meet and mingle" event was attended by PR & Marketing pros from the New York, New Jersey, and Greater Connecticut chapters of the Public Relations Society of America. Top influencers discussed about what’s HOT, what’s NOT and what’s NEXT.
Why are you still using a watch if you can read the time on the mobile phone? or why you are not using (anymore) the watch while you might still need it? Two different situations for many of us.
Reality is that we are individuals and as such we have totally different lives and needs. Depending on our specific situation we might need or not a wristwatch.
The 10 questions quiz in this post can help you evaluating whether it is (still) worth for you to have a watch.
The difference in the evaluation of a 24 hour watch in respect to the more traditional ones is not that dramatic. There are only a couple of elements that are really peculiar and essential to the selection of the best 24 hour models. In this post, we underline all the key criteria that differentiate the 24 hour models produced by the top manufacturers. In fact, because there is not a broad choice of 24 hour watches in the market, there are only few elements that help differentiate them.
The 11th Annual New York’s Funniest Reporter Show was held on Jun 10th, 2018 at Comic Strip Live comedy club in Manhattan.
Todd & Marlon was present at the event and gladly offered a #YOURTIME 24 hour Cosmo Watch to the winner, Gerald Celente, the Publisher of the Trends Journal, business consultant and author who makes predictions about the global financial markets and other important events.
People in the army would easily guess the key characteristics of a military tactical watch. Obviously, the most important features might depend on the specific corps of the army – for example, there could be differences between the needs of a navy and of an infantry soldier, but overall the requirements are very similar for all of them.
We did look into the must-have of a generic army watch and while they are very intuitive, the list is long and quite demanding for a watch.
It is very seldom that someone asks this question. We generally grow up knowing only the 12 hour wristwatch. They might teach us the different methods to measure the passage of time and they might refer also to the 24 hour model. However, only a limited number of people knows that there exist 24 hour analog watches.
In reality, 24 hour watches not only exist but they are even fundamentals for certain people. Hence, before you buy your next watch it might be important to investigate whether you are more a 12 hour or 24 hour watch kind of person.
No matter what they say, there are certain things that is better doing with a 24 hour watch and others that people can do ONLY with a 24 hour wristwatch. We might not need to do any of them or we might take advantage of some. The point is that a 24 hour watch offers something different (sometimes better) than a traditional one.
Nowadays several watch manufacturers commercialize 24 hour watches. You might be familiar with the Slow Watches, Raketa and Glycine. Each one of them has its own specific design and peculiarities but they are all based on a dial with a 0-23 or 1-24 numbering system to indicate the hours in a day.
Long time ago there used to be another numbering system.
