Het Formule 1 seizoen gaat dit weekend van start in Australië. Met Max Verstappen en misschien wel Giedo van de Garde. Hoewel, Sauber wil Van der Garde niet laten rijden. Volgens het team is het niet veilig genoeg voor de coureur, omdat de auto niet aan hem is aangepast. Hoe onveilig was de Fomule 1 in de jaren 50 en 60 wel niet? Menig coureur liet het leven. Onder hen is Graf Wolfgang Berghe von Trips. Velen zullen hem vergeten zijn, maar het Duitse Elysee horloges eert hem (volkomen terecht) met verschillende horloges.

Ever heard of Elysee watches? Probably not. But there is no escaping them now. We have become an official Elysee dealer, which makes us super proud! These Elysee watches look amazing and sell at amazingly sharp prices to boot. And did we mention they are made in Germany?
Elysee’s history reaches back to 1920, with Jacques Beaufort making the first Elysee watch. The name Elysee is registered again in 1960. But the history of the current Elysee watches starts in 2006, with Reiner Seume connecting the brand to former racing driver Graf Berghe von Trips.

Vintage watches. More and more watch brands release Vintage watches these days. For fans of these watches, it should feel like the golden age. Our newest vintage models are manufactured by Welder watches. Their motto seems to be ‘The older the look, the better’.
This week we have been able to add 4 new Welder watches to our collection. Three of which were real vintage watches. The Welder 3600 and 3602 have a brown frame and a black/brown worn out dial that appears to be scratched.
Their little brother, the Welder 3601, has the same appearance in combination with a gilded accent. That historical look is what Welder excels in. The price of this watch is 690 euros, but that will get you a watch designed by Italo Fontana, famous for the U-Boat watches.
U-Boat is another brand that is highly adept in creating vintage watches. What do you think of the Chimera watches? The combination of brown and brass is a brilliant find. But the U-Boat U-42 vintage watch models are not to be overlooked either.
Are you looking for a Vintage watch in a cheaper price class? TW Steel has two beautiful automatic watches, the TW Steel TWA203 and TWA202. Or how about the more modern looking MWG Vintage-01 by the Molarity Watch Group? And, of course, the Lenzers LEW201, an one hand watch that should definitely be included in this category. Also, the Aeromatic A1401 can be yours for a mere 99 euros. I have been mulling over the fact if I should add Retrowerk watches to the list of Vintage watches. I have decided not to do so, because retro is not automatically vintage in my opinion. But you have the right to disagree.

What are you wearing on your wrist this spring? Are you going with a TW Steel watch or would you rather take a Haemmer? Or are you brave enough to choose a model of Versace? There’s one thing all these watches have in common; we offer them at WatchXL at a steep discount! Hurry while stocks last!
It took a while, but spring finally appears to be starting. Let’s celebrate it with magnificent offers. We managed to get our hands on different demo watches of the TW Steel series. Once, they filled the suitcases of representatives or the TW Steel display cases on fairs. We were warned that the watches might show some signs of usage, but these TW Steel watches exceeded our wildest expectations. They look brand-new! And what more, you get a 50% discount on them. Isn’t that a great offer?
We have also managed to make a great deal with Haemmer Germany, that our customers can benefit from. Haemmer watches at discounts up to almost 200 euros. Checking the internet tells you that this makes us the cheapest selling point for Haemmer watches. Naturally, we take a little (or rather a lot of) pride in that! But be quick about it, because stocks are limited.
Finally, one more special offer. There aren’t many shops that offer Versace watches online. But now, the Versace 92QCP9D008S009 Reve Ceramic can be bought at discount prices on our site. And have you taken a look at the Nixon A-127-000 Chronicle SS XL men’s watch? Speaking of great spring offers…
