As mentioned in our previous articles it is the Valjoux 7750, an automatic chronograph movement, that lies at the heart of each MGJVB watch, as well as numerous other watches around the globe. The Valjoux 7750 continues to be an extremely popular movement used in the majority of chronograph watches on the market today, albeit with variations to the movement and complications added as seen fit.

If you browse our collection here (https://www.boutiquevonburg.com/brands/brand-watches/mgjvb), you will notice that all MGJVB watches, originally designed as sports watches, belong to the chronograph family, so we thought it would be a good idea to do a piece covering the recent history of chronographs.

The Manufacture George J Von Burg (MGJVB) collection

July 16, 2019 by Tristan Tristan (0 views)

As it’s one of our in-house brands I was curious to know more about the Manufacture George J Von Burg watches (MGJVB) which are intertwined with the history of Boutique Von Burg and seen as the elder brother to the Claro brand, which makes my favourite watch, the Sports Star Digital Automatic and now Beach Star Automatic. I decided therefore to delve into the history of MGJVB and Boutique Von Burg, and I bring some of that information to you now so you may too understand a little more about our watch collections.

Having just recently covered the history of the Omega Moon Watch, we thought we would descend in altitude a little and cover the ever-popular aviator style wristwatch. So, if you've ever wondered where they came from and wanted to know about their history please read on to find out more!

The Moon Watch

July 8, 2019 by Tristan Tristan (0 views)

Listed in the Omega section (here) of our website is a rather special watch that I had no idea had so much history behind it. A quick skim of its wikipedia page will also tell you that this watch is next to bulletproof, perhaps laughably so, as I had no idea some watches underwent such demanding testing. With that short introduction I present to you the Omega Men’s Speedmaster, also known as the Moon Watch, as it was the first watch worn by an astronaught walking on the surface of the moon and the watch worn during the first American spacewalk. Normally I don’t go in for watch history, but this one is actually quite good. Read on to find out more!
