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 […]

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 […]

Seiko Kinetic battleships: Premier, Sportura and Velatura

Let’s not get into any tilt on whether you can really compare watches to armaments. Cartier had built a Tank earlier and built like a tank is a phrase used often in the watch-dom; so deductive logic does the rest and I’m more than happy calling them so. It’s the ocean of time, so it […]

Velatura SRX010P1: Blue without one

Following the 31st bash, there was another afternoon of old boys gone wild. We don’t get to share much time with one particular fellow; his office always keeps him aloof, on foreign lands, which is good, in a way. His trips proved fruitful for me a couple of times; however, cutting the long story short […]

The Q&M continues

It’s a pumped-up Tuesday! I borrowed a friend’s laptop to work while the grease monkey does the gearbox. The ratchet and the hangar are down to their last stage and there are gear and clutch slips. But it’s great that the problem got detected fast; fixing it back got easy.  Two hours for the engine […]

Quartz and mechanical basics: A bit on the ‘power’ game

As far as I remember, my walk towards watches started with the sheer viewing pleasure of the thing on my left wrist. Needless saying, I wasted quite a lot on cheap frills – enough to buy a few Seiko 5 Sports and a Velatura; perhaps another Premier. Now, don’t you call that delicate; it’s as […]

ASK Gonzo about watches – III

Unlearn the unnecessary in the world of mid-tier and mid-entry-level luxury watches. Let the Watch Gonzo guide your course through the roundabouts and swirly labyrinths and rid-off all your horological ignorance. How well your prenominal viewpoints face the blow is beside the context, but it will definitely remove the crusty covers barring your illumination.  WG comments: […]

Seiko’s passion continues

The quartz watch started in the same year when Man, arguably, landed on the Moon. Whether you take that period favored by planetary conditions or ruled by the numbers, 1969 witnessed several conventional concepts give way to inspirations, some of which still stay put. Putting a crystal oscillator at the core for steadfast accuracy is […]
