An exceptionally high quality horological magazine (it means watches, honest, we looked it up and everything). Though printed in English, Plaza Watch Magazine is truly international in nature, featuring contributors from across Europe and global features.
Plaza Watch brings you not only the latest watches from all the leading designers, it also features intelligent and thought provoking articles on watch culture, accompanied by some exquisitely produced photography and photoshoots showing off the most elegant and gorgeous timepieces. Plaza Watch is published only twice a year, and is exceptionally good value for a magazine of this calibre, making it essential for those who know that a watch is about far more than just telling the time.

Our minds never cease to be staggered by the costs of some of the watches out there. Flicking through the really very well made pages of Plaza Watch (it is definitely worth a purchase in our opinion for the combination of quality and amount of content and production values alongside the low cost), we noticed that one typical watch cost 15, 300 €.
My word we thought. That’s about as much as some of us earn a year. You could buy a fairly decent new car for that kind of scratch. Who would pay that much for a watch?
Then we figured it out. When you are buying a watch, no matter how much it costs you are buying into a style, a fashion, an object that speaks volumes about you. A watch is far more than a simple portable chronograph – if that was true everybody would be wearing mass produced cheap plastic tat. A watch is a symbol, an accessory, almost a piece of jewellery that says ‘I can afford to spend this much money on a watch, therefore I am exceptional’.
And you know what? People spend a huge amount more on ludicrous super-cars. A watch is something that is also an investment; it doesn’t lose its value the way a car does, and can even appreciate rather than depreciate. What's more, every time you take it out for a spin it won’t be punching you in the wallet whenever you pull up at a petrol station. NB
