Chronographs and the MGJVB collection

July 17, 2019 by Tristan Tristan (0 views)

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. Therefore, at the heart of every MGJVB automatic chronograph is the Valjoux 7750 automatic mechanical movement. This movement is extremely reliable, and despite dating back to 1974 is still used in a great majority of today’s automatic mechanical chronographs, and so is used here under tight quality control standards. Read on to find out more about chronographs and let us introduce the Valjoux 7750 to you!

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.

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!

Why I like the Claro Sports Star Digital Automatic watch

June 19, 2019 by Tristan Tristan (0 views)

New to the world of watches, I recently started as an in-house ambassador for the Boutique Von Burg brand. Tasked with generating content and value for one of our best sellers – the Claro – I was initially daunted by the task, what if I didn’t like the watch? Initially I had only seen pictures and had written it off as ugly! Thankfully, it took no time at all for me to change my mind. Read on to find out why this watch is now ranked amongst some of my favourites.
