Invicta Russian Diver Bridge Automatic: Recently introduced timepieces house an unusual movement

Quite a few of my readers accept that Gonzo has preferences for automatic watches and they must not necessarily be from a certain place or a certain manufacturer to turn him on. Favoritism, well; of course, shows its ugly face up once in a while – ok, in quite a few of the instances of […]

Gonzo wields POWER…eh, the Powermatics!

There are Powermatics and there ARE Powermatics. Today, I intend to speak about the latter. The Tissot T-Classic Powermatic 80 T099 series! Why, you might ask. Simply, because I like them! I find them the most likeable among the entire Powermatic range. De gustibus non est disputandum! Not just about the esthetics; it also applies […]

Tissot Bella Ora: An exquisite piece for someone you care!

Tissot Bella Ora: An exquisite piece for someone you care!

You have already heard about Tissot, so let’s not waste any time telling you about that.

The perfect way to describe the Tissot T-Lady Bella Ora is a work of genius; they […]

Seiko: This time far more socially suave

My days as the Watch Gonzo made it almost a habit popping a post or two here every week.  It is now hard to avoid a feeling that my posts off-late are turning bit predictable. It is like many among you readers are beginning to know me well enough. That gets you to see how […]

Elvis 80: Blend is like coffee and cream!

Superlatives like innovative and iconic have become too commonplace; let’s just call this Hamilton piece a plain and different; good, entry-level watch that’s capable of giving many […]

Maserati Epoca: Thoughtful, subtle; delightful and done right

Truth be told, most of us all are illiterates to varied degrees when it comes to explaining the inner clockworks. That is about getting deep into the mechanical- or circuitry-related matters. Esthetics, comparatively, is an easier subject. Only the learned knows about the nitty-gritty intricacies. Gonzo is not that. He just appreciates and tries to […]

The Italian side to affordable luxury

It goes without saying that Gonzo is not particularly an Italian watch fan. He might like a Brioni suit to wear; he also would prefer an Alfa-Romeo to drive around in; but when it comes to wristwears, he prefers to go Jap or Swiss any given day. However, this time he wouldn’t deny his preference […]

Casio Youth: Gems in the less-prestigious subsection

Beyond surfers and rappers there are die-hard men who prefer a hardcore, sturdy Casio or two in their closet. Casio is like Asia if Swatch is to Europe. Are those sturdy sports watches? Or, just cool and fashionable pieces teens and young adults pray for? Guess what, Casio presents both within a single package! Gym-goers […]

Nixon Base Tide Digital: Almost an antithesis

Bottom line: Bright, rugged and bold – the Nixon Base Tide Digital is for hardcore activity addicts! Sedentary ones don’t even look at this! The Nixon Base Tide Digital is all about doubled overdoses of durability and functionalities, which you certainly don’t need in your daily 9-to-5-job life. Weekend land warriors; though, might find some […]
