Citizen Caliber F900: A bit more push over the edge

Part- II Let me finish this one off! I was quite astonished to see people still stuck in the past, considering GPS-watches good enough only for adjusting to a time-zone that you’ve selected manually. Nay, my friend; the F900 is tad brainier than that! It is able to update and shift to the time-zone that

Ask Gonzo ’bout watches – XXXV

Again, it’s Gonzo! Sorry guys, I mean no ‘j’ business, but this whole AGAW session gives our friend a trip that lasts for at least a few hours post answering buyer/reader queries. We enjoy his (sometimes) thoroughly interesting replies and (occasional) columns but not the trip he takes on us. The only way to keep

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 ’bout watches XXVII

Q. Hi Gonzo! I find your articles, answers and explanations to watch-queries very intriguing and wanted to write you someday. There wasn’t much scope till now but finally! I admit I’m still a newbie. My understanding about watches doesn’t go beyond quartz, solar and mechanical; you throw me questions on calibres and other deep technicalities

Speed & Sea: The ways James bonds with his watch

We talk about films today. James Bond movies those were made 1995 and later. Any plausible reasons behind? – Certainly. And I see some of the readers ready to spill it out. Wait, we all know it; let the bubble burst not so fast. The thing is, Omega, unlike what many of us think, is

Pro-Trek returns bigger and better

The 3500 line showed up first at BaselWorld 2015, March and is essentially the PRW 3000 getting a step ahead; the Pro-Trek PRW-3500 now steps out of the stable to set on for bigger, badder and better adventures! Sorry if that sounded too poetic or overwhelmed, but the new ProTrek is going to sweep you

G-Shock Frogman: Dive to worry-free wearing

Watch wearing habits and the name of Casio are no stranger to each other; most of us got Casio as their first high-school watch. The trend still continues; only the products got much better. The somewhat tough Casio digital watches emerged as the Casio G-Shock, symbolizing toughness rivaled by none! No other watch maker till

Tissot T-Race Touch: The race DNA is obvious!

As far as ana-digi complications go, none perhaps blends tech wizardry with fine esthetics as Citizen, but once in a blue moon, we also come across such wonders dedicated to a couple of specifics and that they do with utmost perfection. The Tissot Touch line grabs attention primarily because of that. The practical usefulness of the T-Touch

Orient M-Force Automatic Titanium: Built tough for the happy oceanic times

There have been quite a few posts on titanium in this blog but none on the Orient M-Force Automatic Titanium. A few hours were enough to be convinced why it deserves additional categories (rather than just titanium) to fit in and enhance the pleasures of snow sports for the pro and the weekender alike. No,

Stylish, inexpensive quartz: A clash of opinions

It was a bitter fight and the reasons are as juvenile as they could get. Don’t blame me, though; it’s just that Gonzo’s dogmatic POV-s fry (or, fray) the nerves considerably at times. Giving off your steam – at those moments – is only human. It’s clear as broad daylight. An example, perhaps, might help.

Tissot: The Touching timepieces

It’s been almost a decade and a half since Tissot T-Touch hit the market as the first wristwatch with a touch-screen LCD. There was no iPhone in the year 2000, so it was quite a sweet sensation to tech-lovers and over the years, it has evolved to keep watch-nerds smiling. Whatever your challenge may be,
