Preliminaries A good day to you, readers! Today I correspond with you about the subject of Seiko again the past times alike; still, on a different note.

Pitting Seiko against Hamilton (or, Hamilton against Seiko)
Words from the team: This is an interesting comparison the outcomes of which, strangely, shall almost always reflect the mindset of the person drawing the comparison. We’ll try our level best to stay impartial; however, Gonzo seldom pays heed to the rest of us. So, we’ve presented a list of innovations from either brand at

Is Citizen more accurate than Seiko?
Grand Seiko, undoubtedly, stands as the most accurate watches from Seiko, either mechanical or quartz or Spring Drive. Unfortunately, most think Citizen maxes out with their GPS watches or the Campanola; they probably haven’t yet heard about the very impressive Citizen Caliber 0100. It’s the world’s most accurate, self-contained, quartz movement. One might well argue
Are Seiko watches collectibles? The Gist: There are many timepieces currently from Seiko which have grown to become collectibles. Now, they are considered timeless and their demand is growing every day. Seiko Prospex Fieldmaster Solar 200M: Quite a vintage feel!

Why are Seiko watches so good?
It’s not a rare sight nowadays to see someone spending $10,000 on a Grand Seiko than going for its Swiss brethren costing a much and sometimes, even lower. So, there must be something about a Seiko and we would like to weigh in about the brand. This Japanese watch company has shown unmitigated nerves to
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
SEIKO ISN’T A BRAND IN ITS CONVENTIONAL SENSE. SO, IT NEEDS MORE THAN ONE PAGE. Strumming the Seiko chord In our last post only we mentioned Seiko higher end watches are as good as the Swiss albeit costing a whole lot lesser. Whether you are shelling out $500, $5000 or $50,000, Seiko will always have
Seiko ‘Save the Ocean’ range deals with choppy seas and shark fins passing by! Often doesn’t go beyond Planning on purchasing your first mechanical watch reading reviews is just where it starts at. Most find it difficult criticizing; seldom do they find fault with the piece (or, pieces) under review. Unvarnished opinions are rare. Getting

A small confession to begin with It’s for more than one reason I sat down to pen down some of my observations on the Smart Watch. Certainly they don’t exude the timeless elegance
Short ‘n sweet Style and functionality packed into one piece, Seiko proved it once again! High-grade stainless steel guards its soul – the Seiko Solar movement.

How do you find the luxury watch perfect for you?
Navigating the complicated, online maze for that perfect timepiece is fun till you feel dazed and confused. This is the time when you feel like throwing away your preferences and going for the next one you come across; worse, you give up the spree altogether. Should you have stayed focused on a few, good points;
The reader is expected to understand the heart-cam is a very important component within the Rattrapante (Rattraper in French; means: To catch up again or taking again) chronograph mechanism (from our last post) and our discussion continues onward from that point.

The Citizen Pro-Master series proves that functional watches can also be fun, even for wearers who are not professionally attached to hazardous endeavors.
