Gonzo’s Chronograffiti: I

Buying a chronograph? Get tips from Gonzo! We men are obsessed with watches that look complex. Well, maybe not all, but most of us. We might have a couple of plain-faced types set aside for formal occasions, but our heart and soul will always reside on the complex dials denoting there’s more to observe than […]

Promaster SKY: Limitless!

Promaster SKY: Limitless!

Citizen knows to get serious about people with soft corners for adventurous whimsicality. So they made the PROMASTER brand capture every imagination from sports professionals, all over the world. If it was possible, they would, by now, put everything into a single watch and send it our way but Citizen, again, is a watch company […]

The story behind ‘Pilot’ watches

Truth be told, all men’s wristwatches owe to the pilots. That definitely kills the thrill right away and right at first, but I’m not here to spin yarns for you or cook up a story either. Maybe that’s blatant; maybe something even more – either way, I don’t mind. Remembering Alberto Santos-Dumont – the very […]

For social peacocks this time!

Those made a considerable amount of money go down the drains. Call it too much of a wishful thinking […]

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 […]

ASK Gonzo about watches – X

WG comments: “…own that.” sounds better than “…buy that”. The difference is as much between desire and want. Q. Dear Gonzo, In my humble opinion, you are not someone too-aged although with a fair amount of good taste in watches. So it’s obvious why I write. For your convenience, here’s a little bit about me.
