The good news about the watch market today is that there are more choices than ever before—and at every price point —for a guy on the hunt for a new timepiece. That's also the bad news. It's hard to single out the right watch from the literal thousands of options made available with just a few mouse clicks, and even more so when a lot of those choices look, well, the same. That's where these timepieces come in.
That doesn't mean getting your hands on one will be easy. There's a vast sea of diver watches that hit the market every year and while most don't get past wannabe Submariner status, a select few manage to bring something new to the all-purpose silhouette. You can add the Shinola Lake Erie Monster watch to that list, the latest entry into the Detroit-based brand's timepiece lineup and their first-ever automatic watch.
The Tambour All Black Chronograph is just what it says it is, a slick timepiece by the iconic French brand. When Louis Vuitton released their first smartwatch earlier this summer, it was notable for being a tech-enhanced watch that didn't look like one. In fact, it fit seamlessly into the French brand's beloved Tambour range of watches (so much so that the watch's straps could be interchanged with any timepiece from the line).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
