Tougher than iron, stronger than steel: Super Titanium redefines what strength is all about

Most people I’ve asked who don’t wear a watch seems to be paranoid not only about damaging a costly piece of accessory but also ruining something that has sumptuous amount of sentiment behind it. It seems the guys at Citizen also faced quite a few of them, else their journey towards the superior version of

The new faces of AT: Citizen rolls the game ahead

Hey again, all of you! It’s been quite some time we are flocking around at the MAW blog; the mid-upper and entry-level luxury timepieces our biggest reasons behind. Though some – at times – just graze by exhibiting tasteless showiness (their passion also see an early death, mostly) – we’ll keep them out today. Not

Beyond normal watch-wearing: Kick-up some post-Apocalyptic fun

I don’t blame you if you think I’m a lazy bum, spending my entire day doing nothing but surfing for another timepiece and ranting here all that I collected elsewhere. But that must make you jealous – firstly, because I don’t have to worry about money; next, I’m the lord of my times. But then

Navihawk AT JY8035-04E: New design elements, few technical upgrades

Upon first glance, it was like – “Oh man! It’s definitely a great looking piece!”   Upon wearing, it was zealotry.   The 48mm of stainless steel under the black PVD (it’s sort of ion-plating; we’ll get to that later) has one helluva stealthy visuals (my only gripe is the Navihawk written on the case

ASK Gonzo about watches – VI

Unlearn the unnecessary in the world of mid-tier and mid-entry-level luxury watches. Let the Watch Gonzo guide your course through the roundabouts and swirly labyrinths and rid-off all your horological ignorance. How well your prenominal viewpoints face the blow is beside the context, but it will definitely remove the crusty covers barring your illumination.  WG comments:

Casio Rangeman: The 3-sensor battle gear

I’m not the person who would give his front two teeth for digital watches; nevertheless, seeing the kind of advanced technology going into some of the Casio G-Shocks is bound to get you intrigued. That’s to say, the Casio Master of G Rangeman GW9400. It’s meant for achieving heights, but not depending upon wings, engines

Inexpensive, deep-trip survivors

Something I have often noticed in dive watch lovers, they always boast about how deep their watches can go. It feels juvenile at times; maybe you are wearing an expensive dive watch with 1,000-meter water resistance and matched with professional-grade durability, but what’s the use if all your love for the deep sea is confined within screensavers

About Time Engines

The ultimate luxury is about going Super; supercars, superbikes…do I hear super-watches? If so, then who make them and how do they look? Here, we won’t bring the question of everything being relative; from my viewpoint and purchase power, I will call the Citizen Promaster Skyhawk EcoDrive Titanium world-time a super-watch; but those with a

Limited options on limited editions

I never quite fancied the limited edition watches. I always found the looks vs. price vs. quality ratio going way beyond what I can possibly afford ; for good looks and quality in a single case, there were exorbitant prices to pay. Besides, I like to wear my watches on a regular basis. A very

Work-wear watches: The drive to GO!

The ideal work-wear watch should be an even blend of style and precision, durable but whoever says it has to be bland is bullshitting. That’s some 20 years or older mindset and applies today only to a handful of situations; the current times (more so if you are into outsourcing business) demand multiple timekeeping (and

Mechanical morbidity: A recent societal trend

It is rather shocking to see mechanical movements – no, not the human-robot kind of awkward and clumsy ones; I mean the mechanical watch movements – vanishing from men’s wish list faster than you can say “How?” The trend is going after more than you can handle in a wrist-wear; since mechanicals do not accommodate

Flieger talk

I love single malts. My Friday and Saturday evenings stay kind of drenched in it but the once drink and puke bunch have turned sober, so the fun also watered down a great deal. For example, if someone banged his wrist on the wall out of spree and broke his digital Casio, it was fun.

Watch-ing for occassions

Someone I know is marrying this winter. That’s only a couple of months before the wedding bell rings, so a lot of hurry and scurries make the scene. The spree is driving the family to grab at anything affordable and a lot of bad purchases are a part of it. Lest you too undergoing a
