Promaster Aqualand Diver: Big, thick and Brawny

It’s a stroke of luck or I don’t know how to put it otherwise. Altichron was good but not being a pale and frail looking techno-geek trying to look tough in the swimming pool, I decided to wait and see if Citizen brings out a Diver less complicated than the Altichron but tad more than […]

Orient M-Force Automatic Titanium: Built tough for the happy oceanic times

There have been quite a few posts on titanium in this blog but none on the Orient M-Force Automatic Titanium. A few hours were enough to be convinced why it deserves additional categories (rather than just titanium) to fit in and enhance the pleasures of snow sports for the pro and the weekender alike. No, […]

Stylish, inexpensive quartz: A clash of opinions

It was a bitter fight and the reasons are as juvenile as they could get. Don’t blame me, though; it’s just that Gonzo’s dogmatic POV-s fry (or, fray) the nerves considerably at times. Giving off your steam – at those moments – is only human. It’s clear as broad daylight. An example, perhaps, might help. […]

Tougher than iron, stronger than steel: Super Titanium redefines what strength is all about

Most people I’ve asked who don’t wear a watch seems to be paranoid not only about damaging a costly piece of accessory but also ruining something that has sumptuous amount of sentiment behind it. It seems the guys at Citizen also faced quite a few of them, else their journey towards the superior version of […]

Grunts, groans and grudges

Note: Gonzo jades out. He will return but for now, he appoints me his mouthpiece. I never handled letters and queries before, so I’m writing instead a long answer to those that match. The remaining shall hear from Gonzo. ……………………………………………………………………………………………………… Out of several questions that poured in this week, most go like this, more or […]

Seiko Velatura – Why it delights?

It’s bad luck that Seiko Velatura is not available for every profession. But those who are catered to wear the most robust and solid jewels from Seiko at work, sea-men are one and they score the most with the Velatura. To be more specific, it’s the ocean churners racing the 49er Class. In modern standards, […]

Nautica: When you don’t want a serious watch

” – High styles with good built, materials that kind of flatter and it doesn’t go high up on the scales that determine the seriousness of a watch.- “ That kind of rounds up Nautica but given the number of fascinated users around, I believe I owe them an explanation. However, I meant no offence […]

Auto- vs. solar quartz: On land and under water

When I asked Gonzo the first time which one he would prefer, he questioned back with the same ROI theory in mind: Which one generates more power within a given time span and for how long does it retain that. Now, he is no blind person and obviously he knew the technical sides better than […]

Watch-wearing: An art by heart (Part I)

In my childhood days, wearing a watch the first time was kind of a rite of passage. In those days (not much; just 30-odd years back), a watch announced the boy has grown and he’ll soon be a man. Trousers, too; shorts were for anyone under 13. Maybe the scene was different at your end; […]

Watch-wearing: An art by heart (Part II)

That a watch is jewelry – and perhaps the only jewelry wearable anywhere, even in military – and it sends visual messages is not just my perspective but a lot of people believe in that. Especially at the very formal gatherings (Black Tie events); though, ideally, if we follow the century-old tradition, there should be […]

Sportura SNAE87: Rain or shine, it should be mine

  To be very plain, the last watch Gonzo handed me over for a day – a Seiko Sportura (model no. SNAE87) – gets one impression: See it through to its end, don’t stop halfway. I’ve toyed with a few Sportura watches so far and a plunge into this wasn’t exactly my decision. I was […]

Upon Gonzo’s request: My two cents on ‘dress’

While Gonzo might say dress watches are as good in stainless steel – and by SS he means the entire thing, including the bracelet – but this is where we greatly differ unless it is the CITIZEN Eco-Drive Alarm Perpetual Calendar. To me, a dress watch should be of a precious metal (and okay, here I […]
