Why wear a digital watch?

A word of advice from Gonzo: NEVER, EVER go for a digital watch unless: You got some real hots for the digital format. Some particular digital model tickles your fancy. You are into a very, very active lifestyle and inclined to the adventurous side of life. Digital watches are mostly sleek and sporty and meant […]

Gonzo’s Chronograffiti: VI

Here we arrive at our last installment of this chronograph discourse and we are going to end it with the scales that make these watches true in its real sense. For they are intended for real-life use and not for ornamental purposes though there are some who do just that i.e. keeping track of time […]

Casio: The face of contra-luxury (Part I)

Quite a lot among you readers will be surprised (and that surprisal is going to be irrational) knowing that Gonzo is spending his weekend writing about Casio. Why, may I ask? Agreed that Gonzo is a snob to quite an extent when it comes to watches and other men’s things but that doesn’t mean he […]

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 […]
