Still ‘Hawk-ing around!

My interest towards the Skyhawk AT-s is deeper than the previously discussed Nighthawks. I like my watch complex and the Skyhawk aptly fits the bill. Citizen nailed the design and went on putting functions to it. The present ones have them on different levels, allowing control of the sportiness vs. class factors. The Skyhawk takes

Why go for the mechanicals when quartz is higher in accuracy?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to show automatic and hand-wind watches lesser than quartz. It’s a known fact quartz is superior when it comes to precision (or accuracy) but that’s not what wearing or owning watches is all about.  Mechanical watches have many other advantages and offers a different pleasure that surpasses 24/7

The ‘Hawk tale

Let me clear things right here. I’m not a pilot (and none in my close circuits is, bar one) so do not expect me tech-geeking all the way. It’s just a watch lover’s account on a great addition to the five Citizens I find oh-so-cool. Why? Because it’s easy to use, have great functionalities (yep,

Luxury and women: Features vs. facades

Certain people just love to take advantage of their position. It’s the same Swiss-maniac I’m pointing towards; now his trip is educating me on the perfect Swiss watch for women. Sure, learning doesn’t hurt, but do I really need to get on an extensive educational jaunt on something I shall be able lay my fingers

Percentages and personal preferences: Slide-rules trick’ntreats

 <= ETA With percentages, things are like unit conversions only. Say, 20% of $70. Align 10 (inner rule) with 80 (outer rule) (80% of $70) on the outer rule, making 70 (inner rule) line up with 56 (outer rule). So, final price is $56. Or, do it backwards. Say, you buy a $25 worth something

Aching to make others notice what’s on your wrist?

Frankly speaking, tensions, springs and gears are tough to handle on a daily basis unless you are a Sultan with a hundred people at your beck and call, serving for everything from breakfast to driving and beyond. That’s kinda unromantic too; for what becomes a norm, loses the associated romance. It’s the same with the

EYES opened: Fusion watches overdue since 2010

Eco-Drive, being just a light-powered quartz movement and not mechanical is not a Purist’s cuppa unless he has been fascinated by a watch’s design concepts and overall attention to detail. And that’s exactly what the watch-world was delighted about in 2013. The EYES showcase applications of traditional Japanese aesthetics of utilizing natural light and shadow

A Short review of the AT0797-01E

The AT0797-01E is an Eco-Drivechronograph from Citizen’s July 2009 collection.
