Clearing the ‘Mall Watches’ stigma (II)

Mall Ninja gave you enough entertainment, I presume. Them willing to catch up with the entire conversation, this is for you! Mulling ‘bout the mall Shopping malls today are vastly different from what we saw as kids. It’s much more now than the previous days’ ‘just a few times larger supermarket image. There are hardly

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

7 Quartz watches worth collecting

The question is… Automatic movements, some of them, are priceless works of art, drooled after to be collected and treasured. We don’t feel the same way about quartz calibers, though. Had there ever been any comparison test between quartz calibers from different brands? The stand of quartz From a collector’s standpoint, there are only a

Orient Retro Future: Honoring an artform

It doesn’t matter if it’s a grail piece or just another variation of a model already there with you. The hunt is – and always will be – ON! It’s the hunter-gatherer instinct A collector chooses to do what he or she will; don’t expect the reasons to stay within the count of a hundred;

Fashion watches Do they really put a stigma on your taste?

People with a fashion watch on their respective wrists, most often, face scary comments about the thing they are wearing. I find it pretty ridiculous. Maybe it’s because I also own (and have owned) a couple of them and have been asked about a few many times when I wore them and I wear/wore them

Watch dials: Simple explanations and a few examples (Part I)

For that same reason, most of us stop at just the design of the dials and other components it provides the background for; the hands and the indices, the logo and other alphanumeric characters, applied or printed

Being selective here means having to leave something out; that means, you have to think a bit more carefully. What to leave out and what to include is

Maserati Epoca: Thoughtful, subtle; delightful and done right

Truth be told, most of us all are illiterates to varied degrees when it comes to explaining the inner clockworks. That is about getting deep into the mechanical- or circuitry-related matters. Esthetics, comparatively, is an easier subject. Only the learned knows about the nitty-gritty intricacies. Gonzo is not that. He just appreciates and tries to

The Italian side to affordable luxury

It goes without saying that Gonzo is not particularly an Italian watch fan. He might like a Brioni suit to wear; he also would prefer an Alfa-Romeo to drive around in; but when it comes to wristwears, he prefers to go Jap or Swiss any given day. However, this time he wouldn’t deny his preference

The Italian face of Luxury!

Around a couple weeks back (or longer) a question was raised by a close friend who is ready for another purchase and wanted to get my perspective on an Italian watch maker, Maserati; knowing that I often post (or, try to) for the Creation Watches Blog.
