Hard day at the office?

Hard day at the office? Life sucks for most people. Face it. How’s your life looking? What’s your experience? Is it all worth it? We can kid ourselves that the routine we have is free choice. The hamster-wheel-of-life is happening, and we’re all spinning it around. But is there really an option to stop the wheel and hop off? Mr and Mrs Jones We’re… Read More

A company of passion – we promise to…

It can come across as all a bit cliché (and tech 2.0) for us to rattle off our values, mission and culture etc. A lot of the time it’s hollow lip service to popular culture. But I’ve had a big think about this one, and for Chronohaus, I really want this company to embody, and remain as, a passion-based company. Chronohaus is never going… Read More

Old-timers’ fleeting beauty – it’s not pretty

You think the older watches retain their intrigue? It’s almost never the case.  Watches get old – quick.  And that’s not cool. Just as cars do, some models become classics, but the vast majority are forgotten as the younger more sexy models push them into obscurity. Beauty fades It’s sad, but true. Some things date quicker than others.  And this is more so the… Read More

Good reasons not to buy a watch

Don’t buy a luxury watch – just don’t.  Here’s why. Watches are precision pieces of engineering perfection.  Many hundreds of man-hours can go into building a single watch, and they’re continually pushing the boundaries of physical and kinetic possibilities. All within a tiny case that fits on your wrist. The watch industry has done a good job making watches a revered collectible. We understand… Read More

Want a luxury watch collection?

Consumerism is the new religion. It’s maybe not the best thing in the world to acknowledge, but it’s true.  Want a luxury watch collection?  Join the queue. More is more. Consider that most people spend 95% to 105% of their income. What’s it spent on? It’s spent on stuff – anything. Very rarely do you get someone existing within 60% of their income. There’s… Read More

What’s the point in owning?

Watches aren’t for life, they’re for now.  What’s the point in owning? Be the kid in the candy store. Be the one who get’s to taste all the sweets. Be the cat that got the cream! Owning comes with obligation and hassle, big commitment, and zero liquidity.  For this, you’ve got to cough up a lot of money at the outset, so that you… Read More

Doing the math(s) on watch//es

I want to explore the maths of buying watch//es – and illustrate how you can save 97% with Chronohaus (and have more fun at the same time). Watches cost a lot of money. Let’s look at a the math for a £10k watch. Ouch Initial cash outlay/purchase… Read More

Why we aren’t ‘owning’ anymore

The world is changing. People want more flexibility and freedom.  They subscribe. Two generations ago, it was typical to have only two-or-three jobs, within one defined career, in an entire lifetime. Most people lived their lives in one or two homes, and rarely traveled outside their country. Everything is speeding up. People are switching jobs every few months, and people change careers more fluidly…. Read More
