UHREN-MAGAZIN: advice for purchasers – all about watches
Advice for purchasers – all about watches: that’s the heart and soul of UHREN-MAGAZIN. As a high-class special-interest magazine with outstanding textual content and its visual appeal, UHREN-MAGAZIN stands for unlimited watch fascination. Alongside rational, technical information about the mechanisms and the constructions, UHREN-MAGAZIN also conveys to its readers the emotional components and the pleasure of owning high-quality mechanical watches. The proven competence of the examiners who administer the magazine’ watch tests assure that diver’s and pilot’s watches are subjected to rigorous ordeals under empirical conditions. Comprehensive market overviews, helpful service information and fascinating reports to teach watch knowledge, as well as the fact that this publication appears ten times each year (including the Watch Catalogue / Price Guide) guarantee its topicality and acceptance as the oldest German-language watch magazine.
The Price Guide is published shortly after the watch trade fair in Geneva and after Baselworld. It illustrates more than 1,000 models from over 200 watch brands, along with technical information about their functions and movements. The watches are arranged in ten price classes ranging from less than 500 euros to more than 30,000 euros.
Alongside comparative tests, market overviews are also regularly presented. Particular focal points in the two-year cycle are tests of diver’s and pilot’s watches. Both comparative tests are conducted in accord with the publisher’s specifications and under conditions that closely simulate actual usage. For example, diver’s watches are tested in underwater missions, and then their rate behavior is scrutinized in laboratory tests with artificially generated water pressure. Diver’s watches with mechanical bathometers are tested in a decompression chamber at the Berufsgenossenschaftliche Unfallklinik Murnau (Clinic for Accident Victims in Murnau). Pilot’s watches are tested by pilots who specialize in acrobatic flying. The timepieces’ rate behavior is tested before, shortly after, and 14 days after these acrobatic flights, which subject the watches to stresses as severe as eight times the force of gravity.
