Watches for the Midnight Zone: It’s freezing, crushing out there!

How deep would you go? All dive watches flaunting the 1000m depth-rating mark stark on their respective dials actually mark a threshold beyond which the watch shall – probably – fail to hold and perform due to many a reason; from shattered crystals to complete implosions and failure of ingress points but given the fact

Is Sapphire an Expensive Affair?

Ratio

Sapphire and its many myths Spend some time in the watch forums across the Web and you’ll find many an inquisitive soul – the unseasoned surfers of the horo-world – expressing great doubts over the structural aspects between domed and flat sapphire crystals and regarding their differences in hardness. From this point, you’ll also find

Why would you buy a deep-diving watch at all?

It’s a valid question demanding answers regarding vaguely ridiculous but nevertheless awesome purpose-driven, functional, wrist-wears; for an open secret is – most among us will never dive beyond 300m under water. Rarely do we go for a swim in the rivers; to oceans, even rarer – only when we are in for some beach fun.

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

Is the new Seiko5 a direct replacement of the SKX007?

Quick snaps The new Seiko 5 can’t be called entry-level anymore! They take a lot from the Seiko SKX007; a very similarly designed dial and case predicts all its intents and purposes. The SKX; however, didn’t have drilled lugs and display case back like this one but yes, the recessed crown. It’s the new basis

Moon Phase: Useless, impractical, emotionally appealing

Horological tinkerers aside, even knobs had it defended; such is its entertaining absurdity! Phasing-in, slowly The moon phase complication has attracted many a debate over the years. Despite appearing out of place on a limited number of models, its historical and aesthetic appeal overrules its functional aspects. A complication that’s oddly appealing; to some, there’s

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. 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

Kinetic Perpetual: Runs as long as you give it power

Almost a decade and a half back from now, Baselworld witnessed unveiling of Kinetic Perpetual for the first time and was immediately noted for its exceptional convenience and durability. The Kinetic energy helps the perpetual calendar run uninterrupted until February 28, 2100; all that cased within excellent metal body-crafts. Its perpetual calendar internal mechanism is

Look! It’s Lukia!

Seiko has this general impression of being traditional, functional pieces that don’t scream for attention. They are attractive enough for that. That holds true even for the simplest of the Seiko 5s! The Lukia doesn’t deviate too far! These mid-sized timepieces come in both metal bracelets and leather-strap versions and are noticeable for being charming
