What is WatchBase?
WatchBase is the ultimate online watch database, the go-to site for finding full details on any watch, with a focus on high-end mechanical watches.
And with full details, we mean FULL details.
Here's an example details page for the Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch Speedy Tuesday Edition. Description, images, production years, limited edition info, dimensions, full specs about the case and the details. Plus all properties for the caliber used.
The WatchBase database can be browsed and searched for free, on this watchbase.com website.
Next to that, all WatchBase data is available in structured format through our paid DataFeed API, ready to be used in your online store, website or app.
