Ceramic vs. Porcelain – How do they differ?

Among the least understood of all synthetic materials used in making watches, ceramics and porcelain are perhaps discussed about the least. Not just expensive brands like Rolex, Omega, IWC or Hublot have opted for it; ceramics are opted by affordable luxury brands too! Earlier, we held a brief discussion on ceramics as watch materials but

Clearing the ‘Mall Watches’ stigma (II)

Mall Ninja gave you enough entertainment, I presume. Them willing to catch up with the entire conversation, this is for you! Mulling ‘bout the mall Shopping malls today are vastly different from what we saw as kids. It’s much more now than the previous days’ ‘just a few times larger supermarket image. There are hardly

Do dress watches necessarily need to be expensive?

Among many-a-male obsessions, watches are one, occupying a place both large and prominent both in their hearts and in their respective wardrobes and often, what many of us initially target – names like Patek, Lange and JLC – are often dropped out of the list; a colossal price tag being the chief reason. Still, our

Fashion watches that are worth a second look

The inside matter: Fast and brief Let us not get into the formal definition for a fashion watch. We shall only be talking about watches by brands that do not make watches as their primary product. Most of their profits come from the respective industries (automobiles, liquors etc.) they operate in; watches are either their

Tissot Alpine On-Board Special Edition Automatics: To ignite and incite a passion

Linking passions together From past references, it’s very much evident that both similarities and influences from the automobile industry are noticed aplenty among watch designs. Often, the same materials also adorn a watch and this pairing – we hope sincerely – shall be endless. Both sides of the industry are passionate about keeping up the

Fashion watches Do they really put a stigma on your taste?

People with a fashion watch on their respective wrists, most often, face scary comments about the thing they are wearing. I find it pretty ridiculous. Maybe it’s because I also own (and have owned) a couple of them and have been asked about a few many times when I wore them and I wear/wore them

Some military watches that are worth a look!

Military watches are easily recognizable. They come covered mostly in black, green, gray or camo, in PVD or DLC. Neither their color scheme, nor their size and built are appropriate for wear amidst business settings. Their role is an active one; not to be confined within the boundaries set by four walls and a roof.

Invicta: Taking a closer look

Observations Raise the topic of Invicta watches and you will find many ready to throw more than a little cold water on the conversation. Serious collectors are the biggest critics; though most stop at – “Invicta watches are fine for their price”. Analysis That’s where it ends. I’ve turned the web upside down (figuratively) and

Top 5 names in sports-luxury watches: Call them ‘Timeless’, if you will

Amidst myriad crappy choices in this particular category, these 5 will fill you in. Concerns about luxury watches in the sports category provide today the chance for offering this definitive list. The biased ignorant lot will hate alike, assuming that if an item costs more, it must also be superior as well. While this kind

The journey of the Valjoux 7750: To the 7753 and RW5000

Pre-talk It all started from the Valjoux 7750; an integrated cam-operated, automatic chronograph movement. Valjoux was a part of ETA before and the caliber 7750 they built is still a highly esteemed movement for its robustness and reliability; so much that the majority of mid-range mechanical chronograph watches in the market today keeps on using

Gonzo’s grumblings: Are Emporio Armani watches a worthwhile purchase?

“-Oh, not another horologist’s rant!” Not everyone is interested in the technical contents of a watch – which I understand – some are not at all! All they want is sporting a nice timepiece; good to look at. Armani watches – I find them to do that in style – are quite in line in their overall stylistic existence, some being extraordinarily understated and cool. There’s no doubt about watches from this Italian designer being successful!

A return gift for the wedding ring

So many people hold this wrong notion that a gift out of gratitude or love must be a Patek Philippe or Rolex or a Lange but frankly speaking, a Swiss timepiece, most of the times is not the best option to go for. There are many in this world that qualifies to be called a
