Watch gifting basics Not every watch gifted needs to be the Breguet No. 160 Grand Complication from the Swedish count Axel von Fersen the Younger to Marie Antoinette, the Queen of France (wife of Louis XVI). Or – the Ladies Oyster Datejust from John Meyer to Jessica Simpson! Only to remember while gifting a nice watch is the other

Clearing the ‘Mall Watches’ stigma (II)

2 easy ways to match your clothes and watches!
The power of a wristwatch, gentlemen – like that belt, the tie and those shoes of yours – can build your appearance as easily as it can destroy! Earlier, we had a somewhat similar discussion on this; now, we broaden the aspects. As an ideal example of an ungentlemanly style of dressing, nothing compares to
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
We heard the story of the Spring Drive earlier once, so what’s the point in going for another one? It’s a simple answer: We like to evolve and update. And so does our precious, beloved blog. In simple words, Spring Drive is a watch with a movement that measure time the way of the quartz

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. So, there must be something about a Seiko and we would like to weigh in about the brand. This Japanese watch company has shown unmitigated nerves to
Seiko divers in a nutshell Seiko is consistently recommended for their quality and value and we all know there’s a reason – several reasons in fact – why – specifically Seiko only – holds the crown among excellent quality and value dive watches. There might be several other exorbitantly priced pieces around, fit to be
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? Especially now, when time is displayed almost on everything – From your computer
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.
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
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
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
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. The other one in this category is the Presage, but we are here to talk about the Star! Both are owned by
