Do good mechanical watches best standard quartz?

Quartz watches don’t seem to mind being called upon need and then looked down upon once job is done. They are pretty confident about their stand in the world of finer, furthermore complex time-related calculations that mechanical calibers can only dream of. Or, achieve them just as concept; not for meeting the demands of the

What kind of goods are watches?

“Since when did logic invade the realms of luxury; may I ask you back?” Disclaimer It’s not an attempt in evading the very question hurled; it’s rather an attempt to draw a parameter around which, an answer to an equation we perhaps could attempt finding out for a clear answer at the end. For, why

Why are Seiko watches so good?

It’s not a rare sight nowadays to see someone spending $10,000 on a Grand Seiko than going for its Swiss brethren costing a much and sometimes, even lower.

Why you should wear a wrist watch?

We already know when wristwatches caught up as a trend among men. The WWI soldiers benefitted immensely as pocket watches found a new abode on their wrists but well, what about them who are not exactly fighting a war on the battlegrounds?

Expensive watches: Reasons behind the high price

What are usually the first names that come to mind as expensive (and super-expensive) watches? Pateks, Lange, AP, J-LC, Rolex, Ulysse Nardin, Franck Muller…the list stretches to quite afar; mostly into the Swiss territories. High-end luxury timepieces spell S-W-I-S-S to a large chunk. Also, P-R-I-C-E-Y! Question remains: “Why?” The nature of the movements is a vital determinant. We know that more or less. Mechanical watches take more labor to make and are more expensive than quartz.

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

Widening extreme tunnel visions

All this while, we swam around in the world of European affordable luxury outside Swiss. Today, we decide upon a little breather by going back to the Japanese. Invariably, that brings Seiko into the discussion for us most and a little annoying fact that it is often thought to be good only as a tool

For social peacocks this time!

We are now pretty much used to watches that do more than just telling the time. I’m not quite sure how many people opt for them out of pure appreciation as opposed to their sheer inability for draping around a banner with their personal details on it; in my not so humble opinion, it is

Orient Star Power Reserve: Quite easy to get, very hard to forget

Grand Seiko, in my humble opinion, is quite close to any JLC. A step down and there’s something that bridges the price gap even nicer, removing a fundamental constraint in affordable, luxury horology.

Gonzo and his grumblings – I

Better versions to some of the bests There’s nothing that probably beats the Swiss! That’s how the world goes. You can’t blame anyone for that. Bigotry has been a longstanding tradition among humans. Even watches were (and are) not spared! End result: You end up denying many other fantastic pieces equal to their European cousins.

Calibre 9S86 in something very elegant, robust and traditional
