There are some among us who love the feel that accomplishments bring. And there are people who just love having fun in creative ways. There are people from every age group, skill sets and skill levels who are into this….
I’m going to go out on a limb and speculate this time, under full knowledge of it might be bringing over derisory comments and remarks from the larger crowd. Only a few will be trying it out.
A couple of years back I was bitten by the watch-bug and ever since, I’ve accomplished and maintained the goal I had set back then. Every 5 months I buy a new watch and time is approaching for another; this will be the 6th addition.
“Honestly, separating the fashion watch from a real watch at times becomes quite difficult and greatly moves our objective standpoints, irrespective of our individual tastes.”
What – in your esteemed opinion – should be counted as the current five most significant Seiko watches between $500 and $1000?And what significance does each of those pieces hold?
This might sound judgmental to a great extent to many people. Still, a lot of truth remains hidden into it.
The luxury industry is driven more by an unhealthy desire for displaying status arising from an inability to admire the intellect, creativity and skill that goes into the creation of luxury products. It also exhibits an inability to maintain status while being frugal, which at best, is a lack of worldly knowledge.
Or – many of those things. For, we know for sure that you cannot resist too long the allure our current collection throws at you! It’s a huge one, so we’d like you to take things one step at a time, giving you ample space to choose and finalise on your heart’s desire. You might still be wearing that timepiece from your college days and looking forward to something more appropriate for your present lifestyle, the only things stopping you from acquiring one is time restraint and a lack of variety.
The word Swiss or Suisse inscribed on the dial of a watch has its own charm despite them being ambiguous designations. While this might be unacceptable to some without details properly
Foreworddiscussed, to the majority, this can mean something really, really big.
Watches made wonderful gifts yesteryears as they do now; only that there weren’t too many when it was about making a choice. Very recently – compared to the entire timeline of the watch industry – concepts behind watch-making went awash by the digital wave; now, you’re spoilt for choices.
Integrated chronograph movements are undoubtedly a complex and difficult affair to build. The whole process is expensive and time-consuming; therefore, someone shouldered the responsibility for building them in bulk, so that others can get them without wasting time, energy and effort. The concept of stock movements was born.
Not many objects can eclipse us flesh-and-bone humans and attain stardom in public memory; much less secure a place in history. Those that did became famous; sometimes even overshadowing the human/non-human character they associated with. We gather around here to speak about a few such iconic movie gears. We gather around here to speak about watches that made it big on the silver screen.
Every March (barring 2020) is when we see horological passion face a crescendo through releases; like at the end of March this year,
It all starts with respect. Respect the watch you’ll mod for what it is before modding Honour its rights to be treated fairly and honestly.
Modding is not only for those watches in which you don’t find the perfect look. It is to make a watch look your preferred way, irrespective of whether its design has won an award or not.
here are numerous real-life stories about watches that survived absolute Hell – whether at Saigon or in Afghanistan or Benghazi – and still keeping on ticking, maintaining perfect time; however, it is not good for the watch not to get some tender, loving comfort in return after hard days of labour, irrespective of how good or solidly built the watch might be. Similarly, a watch running for a decade without some TLC is equally
It will be good if we mention right at start that we’re going to discuss about not just two, but 5 movements altogether. For, the roots of the calibre 8215 go down to the calibre 8205 and it branched out to become the calibre 821A later. The calibre 8205 also has another descendent – the 820A – which is its decorated version. Or, you can simply say that it is the day/date version of the 8215. It won’t be fair if we leave them out of this discussion.
