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

The middle-price point sensibilities

It’s interesting – entertaining too – choosing something substantial in a completely arbitrary manner, from a vast ocean of models covering the base of the watch market.

Why you should wear a wrist watch?

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

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!

Pre-talk Gonzo recently lead us in the direction of a thorough research about some of life’s horological staples. But given – “as laid back as we all are” – as he claims, in matters of horological learning and investigations (“We are, O Gonzo; you needn’t graduate medical science or medicine to marry or whatever….),we could

Does Gonzo approve of the Italian watch brands? – Team CW wonders

Luxury watches, to the most of us, do not go beyond the Swiss borders; only the truly horologically erudite glides into the French, English, German and Japanese realms and uncovers unprecedented pieces that stand ground on their own merits. Add to this list a republic in southern Europe, famous for its artworks and its luxury

Newsleeter: Morellato: Exclusively Woman-isque

Few are there in the male-dominated world of horology who thought about creating pieces exclusively for women. Morellato banged the nail right on the head. Today, the wonderful collection of Morellato watches show that they are in business and the business is good! The most impressive collection – arguably – from Morellato is definitely the
