    Ace & G-Shock

    During the 2016 edition of Salon 0024, Ace Jewelers and G-Shock sealed their partnership. Ace Jewelers is now an official retailer of the G-Shock Premium collection. G-Shock Premium is currently available exclusively in Amsterdam at Ace & Dik Jewelers on Van Baerlestraat 46, and in the online eBoutique www.AceJewelers.com.

    G-Shock Premium

    G-Shock was introduced in 1983 as a result of the quest for the ultimate in shock-resistant watches. Since then it has become an icon of technical ingenuity and robustness. Over the years, there has been a great range of colors, designs and features, but the most special and exclusive models are always reserved for the exclusive G-Shock Premium collection.

    Within the Premium collection, MR-G and MT-G stand out for their stylish designs, high quality materials and cutting-edge technology. The use of titanium and/or steel combined with the extremely high quality finish, provide a stylish look without losing the distinctive functionality and ergonomics of the G-Shock brand.

    The Masters of G collection includes Mudmaster, the Gravitymaster and the Gulfmaster. The typical G-Shock combination of technical ingenuity, design and ease of use is magnified by these models; each of the models has its own strengths and intended audience - on land, at sea or in the air.

    Alon Ben Joseph, CEO of Ace & Dik says: "As a child I started wearing Swatch and G-Shock. I have  always been both a fan and a collector. Recently my father and I had the chance to visit the G-Shock Premium Production Line in Japan; it was an incredibly impressive experience. Since then, my appreciation for G-Shock watchmaking factory only increased. Although Switzerland is a big name in the field of watches and we are proud dealers of some lovely Swiss brands, the world is bigger than that. We show this love to our customers by carrying brands such as Nomos (Germany), Bremont (England) and Pequignet (France). Japan's G-Shock Premium reflects another adventure on our journey through this wonderful world of watches. "

  • It's Speedy Tuesday! Inside Omega's Silver Snoopy Award

    Omega has a rich history in watchmaking. The success of the Swiss watchmaking company has been tried and tested by NASA through space expeditions. After seeing the Omega Speedmaster Apollo 13 Silver Snoopy limited edition (sorry, long sold out!), I wanted to learn more about Snoopy’s role in NASA.

     

    Peanuts Comic Strip printed in newspapers the week of March 10th, 1969.

     

    Almost everyone knows who Snoopy is, the cute cartoon dog and best friend of Charlie Brown. In the 1960’s, the worlds obsession with the space program was prominent. That didn’t exclude Snoopy. The Peanuts Comic Strip featured Snoopy on his own Space excursions. Prior to the first lunar landing Apollo 11, they needed a dress rehearsal to ‘snoop around’ the moon to find a landing spot. The Apollo 10 module was named Charlie Brown, and Snoopy and Charlie Brown became the official mascots of the excursion. Snoopy served as the ‘Watch Dog’ to ensure safety on all lunar missions. Since 1969, NASA has awarded individuals and companies contributing to the safety of lunar missions.

    The Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch ended up saving the lives of three astronauts aboard the Apollo 13 when one of the oxygen tanks exploded, leaving the spacecraft to orbit the moon without landing before returning to work. Apollo 13 was meant to be the third excursion to the moon. The spacecraft was forced to conserve energy, and the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch was the sole timing instrument to time the imperative 14 second maneuver which allowed the aircraft to reenter the Earth's atmosphere safely. The watch featured a hand-wound movement. A self-winding movement would not work in space because the watch relies on gravity to power the watch.

     

    OMEGA-SNOOPY-LUME-SHOT-1024x682

     

    In 1970, NASA awarded Omega the coveted Snoopy Award to recognize the achievements of the Swiss watch company had in the space program. The award includes a silver pin of Snoopy wearing a spacesuit and helmet, in addition to a certificate signed by the three astronauts aboard the spaceship.Now decades later, we the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch is one of the most popular watches from Omega. Omega released the Silver Snoopy special edition edition to commemorate their great achievements in watchmaking history, and is one of the most sought after Speedmaster for collectors. 

    The Snoopy is long sold out but luckily, the Speedmaster Professional Moonwatches are still available and you can shop the entire collection online here!

  • Exclusively at Ace: Art meets Jewelry with Nanis

    Laura Bicego is the mastermind behind Nanis Jewelry. The stunning high karat gold jewelry is one of our favorite newest brands to join the Ace Jewelers Collections exclusively in Amsterdam. Striking, powerful, transforming, beautiful are just a few words that come to mind when describing the concepts that come out of the Bicego herself. Probably my favorite thing about the jewelry from Nanis, is that there is a story to be told behind every collection. Each collection was inspired by a different theme. The cultured jewelry also has some underlying inspiration with some of the most important painters such as M.C. Escher, Matisse and Monet.

    The Cachemire Collection has a simple, curved teardrop form and is based on repetition. The tessellating forms fit together just like one of M.C. Escher’s drawings. Both beautiful and tantalizing, and set with diamonds- but only where necessary. The forms were inspired by the harvest of cashmere wool, the pieces are snug and fit together, and then hand-engraved with specially made stakers to get the beautiful brushed texture. The texture done on the gold isn’t shiny or matte. The gold simply glows. The pave diamonds add extra thoughtful consideration on the placement in the collection. In most 'basic' pieces of jewelry, the clasp is not considered whatsoever. With Nanis, she uses the diamonds sparingly, but always in the right places, even if it makes the clasp the center of attention.

    The Lagoon Collection is not to be taken too seriously. The organic and playful golden forms are bulbous and rough. They are finished beautifully with the hand-engraved texture Nanis is known for.The Lagoon collection was inspired by the lagoons in Venice, close to Laura Bicego's design studio in Italy. The whimsical organization of the forms is like the Lagoon gauche and paper cut piece by Matisse, the collection is boisterous, lively and pleasant.

    The dancing in the rain collection is  a combination of varying sized “rain drops” juxtaposed between materials. The color palette for the collection is as if Nanis picked it directly from the painting, The Seine in the Rain by Monet. The The delicate chain is like rain gushing down from the sky. The aquamarine is offset by glimmering diamonds to give you that extra bit of sparkle in your eye even when you don’t like the rain.

    The Ipanema Collection is like finding a hidden treasure while stranded alone on the beach. Dazzling and full of life just waiting to be discovered- the exquisite details of the jewels are not to go unnoticed. The hand engraved detailing on the little gold pebbles resemble the marks left on the rocks as the waves go crashing into them, just before a storm rolls in. The designs are unexpected and far from boring. This bracelet features a color palette of gemstones similar to the painting The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai. The woodblock print by the Japanese artist has a beautiful white texture from the end of the wave, very similar to the texture used on the golden pods in the bracelet. The labradorite stones glimmer from a dark blue/grey to blue as crystal clear as the Mediterraan Sea. The sporadic diamonds are like when the sun glimmers off the gentle waves in the ocean.

  • Meira T. Jewelry is now sold exclusively at Ace Jewelers in the Netherlands!

    Meira T. is our newest addition to the Ace Jewelers jewelry collection. Meira T.'s jewelry designs are at the forefront of fashion, edgy and chic. 14 karat gold, pave diamonds and semiprecious gemstones are brought to you at an accessible price point.

    600 meira t gemstone diamond rings ace jewelers-1

     

    The delicate nature of the jewelry makes it easy to layer up and stack them high. The candy colored gems are easy to mix and match with all of your other gold rings as well. There are little tricks that the designer uses when keeping all of the pieces accessible. Firstly, the jewelry is using 14 karat gold rather than 18 karat gold. Don't think that this is necessarily a bad thing. 18 karat gold is actually a much softer material than 14 karat. One is less likely to damage and scratch 14 karat gold. The lightweight materials make Meira T. perfect for effortless, everyday wear.

    Do you want to see more from the Meira T. collection? Stop by Ace & Dik Jewelers today to try it on, or shop directly online here.
