cinnamon-mint-18Linux Mint 18 is now available!

Based on Ubuntu 16.04, which was made available in April, this release of Mint is based on the LTS release of Ubuntu, rather than following the twice-yearly updates – and will have only incremental changes and updates over the next 2 years – thus being more stable and predictable, and avoiding any potential instabilities introduced by the biannual Ubuntu upgrades.

So Mint 18 should now be available in all the eRacks product dropdowns – if you don’t see it on the model you want, please contact us and we’ll fix it or give you a custom quote with Mint 18.

As always, contact us at for any inquiries or questions regarding the Mint 18 release, or any of our products, and what release we recommend for you and your unique needs.

Selecting Watch Movements

Before you step foot into a boutique, you’ll want to know the basics of what you’re after in a watch. The movements, also known as “caliber” is what makes your watch work.

The 3 most popular types of watch movements are mechanical, automatic, and quartz.


An automatic watch is similar to a mechanical watch except you don’t have to wind it yourself. The watch has even higher intricacies within it which wind the watch for you.

Most luxury watches on the market use automatic movements to keep themselves ticking. For example, this fashionable Rolex Submariner 16613 Oyster Perpetual powers itself.


A mechanical watch is the type you manually wind by hand. This is the oldest way of giving energy to a watch, used for centuries.

No routine battery changes is a plus of these watches. However, these mechanical watches need a tune-up every few years to keep the parts moving properly. Many vintage watches use this type of movement.
