Watches must in affordable luxury!

Affordable, a vague and variable term; in modern luxury contexts presents something presentable; something that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. The watch kingdom, as we see it today, offers quite a few of such surprises worthy of respect. Which to endorse? All equally good for the purposes they have been built. Most […]

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 […]

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. Also, P-R-I-C-E-Y! Question remains: “Why?” The nature of the movements is a vital determinant. We know that more or less. Mechanical watches take more labor to make and are more expensive than quartz.

Gonzo and his grumblings IV: Choose a chronograph without the pain

Purchase something on your birthday! It’s not mandatory that you go for a lump-something, but it should commentate the occasion for an extensive period. In simple words, it should last. Purchasing a new timepiece serves the purpose well. Many prefer exotic chronographs that are worth looking at and these do not cost you a fortune. You may consider them over a Patek or a VC or a Lange, for very few would put those super-expensive big names under a real test.

Mother’s Day ideas: Beyond flowers, chocolates and family dinners

A great Mother’s Day idea is something to accompany her year round. Watches fit just right! Mother’s Day is happy time for the fortunate who received motherly love from anyone; not just from the lady who bore you in its literal sense. Or, it could be about anyone whose motherly instincts you admire. It’s about […]

Automatic conversations: Citizen triggers it all the more!

One thing about Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology-oriented watches is they got boring. To me, at least; despite their so many variations on the technology! Citizen is not just about Eco-Drive; Citizen’s Miyota calibers – although overlooked by all except some of the real watch connoisseurs – are something that I’d like to talk about this time. […]

Gonzo’s Chronograffiti: I

Buying a chronograph? Get tips from Gonzo! We men are obsessed with watches that look complex. Well, maybe not all, but most of us. We might have a couple of plain-faced types set aside for formal occasions, but our heart and soul will always reside on the complex dials denoting there’s more to observe than […]

If it was possible, they would, by now, put everything into a single watch and send it our way but Citizen, again, is a watch company […]
