About the steel you’ll feel on your wrist!

Technology has come a long way, gifting us a wide array of materials used for building your gadgets, cars and other stuff including your watches. Still, majority wristwatches are made of stainless steel, often coated with gold and titanium or wrapped in ceramics and carbon, offering an excellent rigidity at reasonable prices. Steel withstands a

Gonzo’s views about ‘affordable pedigree’

Q. Dear Gonzo, What should I consider an affordable pedigree watch? Also, what adds pedigree to watches? I find the flashier watches tempting but as of now, I resist and urge you to guide me toward a fine timepiece; peerless and respected. I’m looking for a better choice to commemorate my – what I consider

Gonzo’s simple solutions to a modern-day problem

Q. Hello Gonzo. Teacher here; working under a large educational institute. My wants are simple. You got anything that you might think look good upon someone who finds jeans and t-s a disturbing trend as teaching attires? Many among my brethren do. I pity them for missing another excuse to wear a nice watch at

Watches must in affordable luxury!

Affordable, a vague and variable term; in modern luxury contexts presents something presentable; something that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. The watch kingdom, as we see it today, offers quite a few of such surprises worthy of respect. Which to endorse? All equally good for the purposes they have been built. Most

Seiko Watches: The legend and its legacy

Seiko Watches New Arrivals

As one of the leading watchmakers in the world, Seiko’s releases look great and offer amazing functionality. They are environment-protected as usual and endowed with advanced technology behind their functioning. They are designed to make batteries last longer. The Seiko Neo Classics, chronographs and simple quartz watches got certain names that stand out from others

Expensive watches: Reasons behind the high price

What are usually the first names that come to mind as expensive (and super-expensive) watches? Pateks, Lange, AP, J-LC, Rolex, Ulysse Nardin, Franck Muller…the list stretches to quite afar; mostly into the Swiss territories. High-end luxury timepieces spell S-W-I-S-S to a large chunk. Also, P-R-I-C-E-Y! Question remains: “Why?” The nature of the movements is a vital determinant. We know that more or less. Mechanical watches take more labor to make and are more expensive than quartz.

Gonzo’s Chronograffiti: IV

“All in the name of the game.” – Other aspects of the chronograph; a game these watches play very well! Our column wheel versus cam switching discussion could go on; but then, going further downstream into the rest of the chronograph mechanism would have to wait for some more time. Today we learn a bit

Gonzo’s Chronograffiti: II

Buying the chronograph? Get further tips from Gonzo! Our last conversation overlooked the possibility of ana/digi formats, which is certainly disheartening but never intended. It’s just that the limited time and space sometimes boggles your mind. Speaking about that, legibility sometimes becomes an issue. In an effort to make too many things run – no,

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

Orient Star Power Reserve: Quite easy to get, very hard to forget

Grand Seiko, in my humble opinion, is quite close to any JLC. A step down and there’s something that bridges the price gap even nicer, removing a fundamental constraint in affordable, luxury horology. The other one in this category is the Presage, but we are here to talk about the Star! Both are owned by

The Jap-Swiss Camaraderie: Greater excitements ahead?

Barring a handful, today’s world is full of people who are unwilling to appreciate the mechanism inside a watch; instead, it is the ornate works with crystals and jewels put into the cases and on the dials that grab their attention. Sometimes, they do appreciate masterful craftsmanship like lacquer painting and layered metal construction; however,

Presage Cocktail Time: First step to the Grand Seiko

Some seven years back, Seiko thought about creating something different from the sports divers that’s equally extraordinary and would give them a different identity while sticking to the same price range. The result was a series of mechanical watches that embodied the glamour of the cocktail bars. The sad part is, Seiko made them available
