This week the guys are digging into one of the more pervasive perils of watch collecting out there: watch jargon. All too often we just nod our heads to watch terms that brands and other collectors fling about. So all of us here at TBWS have taken it upon ourselves to start shedding light on those watch terms that we feel all modern, thoughtful, and informed watch enthusiasts should be aware of…. there’s also a fair bit of horological hooliganism in this one. Enjoy!

Watch terms we discuss:

  • Incabloc
  • Co-axial escapement
  • Integrated chronograph
  • Modular chronograph
  • Flyback chronograph
  • Split seconds chronograph/rattrapante
  • Minute repeater
  • Grand complication
  • Tourbillon
  • Ébauche

Kaz Mirza( Co-Founder )

Kaz has been collecting watches since 2015, but he’s been fascinated by product design, the Collector’s psychology, and brand marketing his whole life. While sharing the same strong fondness for all things horologically-affordable as Mike (his TBWS partner in crime), Kaz’s collection niche is also focused on vintage Soviet watches as well as watches that feature a unique, but well-designed quirk or visual hook.
