A newsletter and publication dedicated to making you smarter about watches.


Rescapement is dedicated to helping enthusiasts get smarter about watches. The only way to get all of our content — in-depth guides and analysis, auctions and vintage watches for sale around the web, as well as event invites — is to subscribe to our weekly newsletter.

Rescapement is driven by a passion for all things mechanical watches. Our singular goal is making you, the consumer, a more informed enthusiast, purchaser, and collector. Not brands, press releases, trade shows, or selling watches from our shop. We’re dedicated to fostering a community of enthusiasts, sharing knowledge and a passion for these mechanical wonders. A watch community shouldn’t be exclusive or inaccessible; it need only be passionate.

While we’re a publication with national (and international) focus, we work to actively foster a community of watch collectors, enthusiasts and savants in our home of Chicago. If you’d like to get involved in our meetups subscribe to our newsletter, or just contact us (website form, Instagram DM, or email). We’re always down to meet fellow watch lovers. We’re not pretentious or exclusive, we just love watches.

Rescapement is written mostly by me, Tony, but we welcome partners and guest writers. If you’re interested in writing an article, please reach out.
