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

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. The other one in this category is the Presage, but we are here to talk about the Star! Both are owned by […]

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

Whoever has known about Seiko’s earlier high-beat watches must also know a thing or two about the Calibre 9S85; its superior accuracy came with an enhanced resistance to external shocks. So, when Seiko stepped up a level introducing the Calibre 9S86, you can pretty well anticipate their glee! The difference this time was an incorporated […]

Why Grand Seiko mechanicals are honoured as timeless luxury? – Gonzo explains, Santo writes

[Part: III] So we return to the topic again. Gonzo went on about the 46 years of experience backing up Seiko’s production quartz watches. He started on the finer details a bit and was about to raise his praises about the greatness of the movements (his ‘hots’ for the 9F showed), when suddenly, there was […]
