Diver watchdom revisited: No deterring. Not even for the undetermined!

Disclaimer: As someone who appreciates wearable aesthetech marvels, it would be unfair to hold opinions about watch models to be excellent, good or bad – unless technically, that is. About aesthetics, well; each person to his or her own, as long as it doesn’t transcend irritation; like digital pieces with business suits. Or, absolute dinner […]

GMT & World Time: For times when you are about to go places

Now that cell phones have become an integral part of almost everyone’s everyday way of life, many argue if a wrist watch is at all something that’s necessary to your life. Human history tells us that it has only been around for a small fraction of time; life existed before but it wasn’t the hectic, […]

Should move the way you like – Gonzo gives insights about how to select a watch

Now certainly, a watch doesn’t move around unless it’s on you; it’s just that it will remain unaffected when exposed to the things you face in a daily life. It should be able to travel – go the way you do every day without complaint. Does that mean just one watch and no more? There […]

Seiko Watches: Avoidance, inhibitions and preferences!

Seiko Watches: Avoidance, inhibitions and preferences!

One problem with the human mind is once it is in love, it forgets everything else. Maybe that’s exaggerating a bit again, but not too much. Take Seiko for an example. Despite its excellent reputation among watch buffs the world over as one of the few true manufactures who build their goods all by themselves, many […]

The scene with Kinetic Watches. What is Seiko Kinetic Watch?

Kinetic Watches

A lot of people are clueless about the phenomenon we watch lovers usually call the mecha-quartz. Drop the name Kinetic and behold! There are so many!

Tissot Powermatic 80: Easy to give into its luxurious temptations

As I’ve gotten deeper with gentlemen on the more serious sides of human nature, I gradually found out such men to be always on the lookout for the perfect tool. Be it something to fix up gadgets; or something to travel. To play! Or to manage their time! At times, they want in all simplicity […]

Gonzo’s grumblings: A look-back into the rediscovered past

“These are admittedly turning rare and the scarcity of new ones to blame. Orient’s initiative towards the problem revealed an interesting one.” A good pocket watch is fascinating. A nice pocket watch is even more! But what if it’s a fine pocket watch? That’s absolutely fascinating; to Gonzo at least! It doesn’t necessarily be Swiss […]

Expensive watches: Reasons behind the high price

What are usually the first names that come to mind as expensive (and super-expensive) watches? Pateks, Lange, AP, J-LC, Rolex, Ulysse Nardin, Franck Muller…the list stretches to quite afar; mostly into the Swiss territories. High-end luxury timepieces spell S-W-I-S-S to a large chunk.
