Category Archives: Co-Axial Chronometer

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

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronographs: Sequels are not always a bad thing

It’s unique! Omega’s maritime legacy shines brighter through the new Seamaster Planet Ocean Chronographs. The current Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean series is the first chronographs ever from the brand to be certified as Master Chronometers. Back in 2015 The Globemaster is Omega’s first to earn the Master Chronometer title. Omega further approached METAS (The Swiss

Revisiting Co-Axial: Getting rid of a dilemma (Part II)

Hello, my good folks, how have you been? Had been too easygoing the past few weeks; it’s the penning down of the rest of the co-axial instalment took the toll. It’s time to put right things that went awry. In our previous instalment, we overlooked the issues Omega faced with the first coaxial movements. Truth

Revisiting Co-Axial: Getting rid of a dilemma (Part I)

Often we face questions about whether Co-Axial signifies a specific type of movement or if it is some specific grade applied to the Omega calibres. Since it’s been quite some time we discussed it last, I wish to go back over the whole thing to clear the confusion once and for all. Firstly, Co-Axial is

Seamaster Planet Ocean: Suits well the wet-suit obsessed

A certain person sent us a query regarding the Omega. She seems to have grown tired of him wearing digital monstrosities even when they are out on dates. “…If the only thing that I’ve started disliking about him is wearing his G-Shocks on a romantic dinner for two. His obsession about the outdoors has now

Expensive watch wearing….revisited

Some of you who are kind enough to bear through the rumblings every week or twice often hold a grudge against Gonzo that he is averse to the use of plastics, circuit boards and batteries! True. If they belong to irresponsible, disposable watches. Else, he values them for almost the same reasons you value them

Cost: From a vegan perspective

“Hamesha itnie kimti ghadiya kaheko lagaata?” – “Why do you put on such costly watches every time?” Things are not much different in India. Here, too, the craft of watch-making comes under siege at times. Stepping into the battleground thus created is a matter of choice; to defend it; plain, cold logic is enough. Their

Omega movements: Better than Rolex?

Santo speaks: That’s exactly where things took off. The recent flood of Omega – the other most well known watch besides Rolex – triggered the much-discussed topic once more. Both the Rolex and Omega camps tried settling the debate in the most honourable and most arrogant of ways. So, it is foolhardy to assume I’m

The Omega De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometer – Very favourable first impressions

The OMEGA De Ville Prestige Co-Axial Chronometers bring mixed reactions; neither unpleasant. Their large and loyal following is not just about the classic and elegant crowd; its design and characteristic luxury styling is a subject of interest to anyone admiring timeless existence. It exudes from the design. They are perspicuous right at the first glance,

Co-Axial escapement: Omega’s signature creation

These entire years horology – as a whole – witnessed many different escapements. They came and they went; they still come and go and its discussion is limited within close circles. Even then, the world outside the shrunken range must know of the Co-Axial escapement. Designed by George Daniels in the 1970s, the British master
