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,

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.

The story behind ‘Pilot’ watches

Truth be told, all men’s wristwatches owe to the pilots. That definitely kills the thrill right away and right at first, but I’m not here to spin yarns for you or cook up a story either. Maybe that’s blatant; maybe something even more – either way, I don’t mind. Remembering Alberto Santos-Dumont – the very

Better versions to some of the bests There’s nothing that probably beats the Swiss! That’s how the world goes. You can’t blame anyone for that. Bigotry has been a longstanding tradition among humans. Even watches were (and are) not spared! End result: You end up denying many other fantastic pieces equal to their European cousins.

Citizen Caliber F900: A bit more push over the edge

Part- II Let me finish this one off! I was quite astonished to see people still stuck in the past, considering GPS-watches good enough only for adjusting to a time-zone that you’ve selected manually. Nay, my friend; the F900 is tad brainier than that! It is able to update and shift to the time-zone that

Smart or Simple – Who wins the game?

This again happens to be another futile attempt at covering the occasional – now a bit old – dire warnings of modern electronics sucking out the lifeblood off watch-crafting as we mostly know it today. If that’s a little hard to understand, it is the chewed-dry remnants of the smart versus classic watches debate. The

Ask Gonzo ’bout watches – XXXV

Again, it’s Gonzo! Sorry guys, I mean no ‘j’ business, but this whole AGAW session gives our friend a trip that lasts for at least a few hours post answering buyer/reader queries. We enjoy his (sometimes) thoroughly interesting replies and (occasional) columns but not the trip he takes on us. The only way to keep

Cost: From a vegan perspective

“Hamesha itnie kimti ghadiya kaheko lagaata?” – “Why do you put on such costly watches every time?” Things are not much different in India. Here, too, the craft of watch-making comes under siege at times. Stepping into the battleground thus created is a matter of choice; to defend it; plain, cold logic is enough. Their

Ask Gonzo ’bout Watches – XXIX

Q. Hi Gonzo. Which do you think are the most expensive quartz watches with a reason? What’s the max you would pay for a quartz wristwatch? What you consider would be a suitable cut-off? A. I’d like confess first. It’s not till the year 2000 I considered watches to be of any special value; a

Fit, finish, fervour – As close to flawless

The Spring Drive is not quite your usual thing. The seconds-hand is its giveaway; despite its relation with quartz, it makes small, multiple jumps, instead of one every second. It gives the Spring Drive a mechanical glide; completely smooth, totally silent. How does that go? Spring Drive, at its core, is mechanical every bit. There’s

GMT: A useful complication to any man

The New Year is just around the bend. Wishing friends and families living abroad often brings time-clashes; let it not happen this time. Those who already bought the GMT watch solved half the problem; the other half is about knowing how to put it into use. Earlier there have been posts on GMT watches but
