New Citizen Eco-Drive: METAL you can trust

Embracing the latest in technology is a long-standing tradition with the watch-making industry. We have seen many of those technologies wearing the high fashion tag; some, who tried desperately doing so and a handful that became synonymous. With them, there’s no gee-whiz factor and while countless people try integrating them into their regular lives, let’s

ASK Gonzo about watches – XI

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: 

Dogged dress-watching this time

  After a few watches and countless ranting here at the MAW-blog I’m met with a crisis. I really, really need a dress watch. Not the dress-complications; it should be a plain dress watch. Gold, black and white can be a killer combo but it all depends on where you place what. For some, black,

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

Quartz and mechanical basics: A bit on the ‘power’ game

As far as I remember, my walk towards watches started with the sheer viewing pleasure of the thing on my left wrist. Needless saying, I wasted quite a lot on cheap frills – enough to buy a few Seiko 5 Sports and a Velatura; perhaps another Premier. Now, don’t you call that delicate; it’s as

Entering Swiss Borders: Hamilton sets the course

All these years, I have been into the Jap giants, namely, Seiko, Citizen and Orient. Now any watch enthusiast might get surprised that I haven’t ventured into the Swiss domain but there is a valid reason behind that. The price factor, to be precise and not being a millionaire, I have politely shunned aside allures

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

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

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

Grand Seiko: A perfect match to business suits?

This time I tell you about this guy who finally agreed to retire his Timex and look at slightly more expensive Jap makes. Provided he is into the corporate world, his options are limited. He’s one of those strictly-one people who are not willing to spend on two or more. He liked my Citizen chrono

Citizen AT8010-58E – No more of crazy resetting

Aging changes your preferences. All these years, nothing less than the heavy stuff grabbed my attention; be it in music, fabrics or in watches. Off late, I noticed I can’t carry denims all day; my ears have gone too soft to stand Danzig and MotorHead for too long and watches! I needed something to go
