Gonzo’s grumblings: A look-back into the rediscovered past

“These are admittedly turning rare and the scarcity of new ones to blame. Orient’s initiative towards the problem revealed an interesting one.” A good pocket watch is fascinating. A nice pocket watch is even more! But what if it’s a fine pocket watch? That’s absolutely fascinating; to Gonzo at least! It doesn’t necessarily be Swiss […]

Invicta Russian Diver Bridge Automatic: Recently introduced timepieces house an unusual movement

Quite a few of my readers accept that Gonzo has preferences for automatic watches and they must not necessarily be from a certain place or a certain manufacturer to turn him on. Favoritism, well; of course, shows its ugly face up once in a while – ok, in quite a few of the instances of […]

Mother’s Day ideas: Beyond flowers, chocolates and family dinners

A great Mother’s Day idea is something to accompany her year round. Watches fit just right! Mother’s Day is happy time for the fortunate who received motherly love from anyone; not just from the lady who bore you in its literal sense. Or, it could be about anyone whose motherly instincts you admire. It’s about […]

Modern gems from Swiss-American collaboration

Not every watch embraces the fundamentals that brand it Swiss-made. No, not even many of those luxurious (well, they look so at least!) fashion watches built under Swiss collaboration but hear me out here! Only a few could achieve the world-class accessory despite belonging to another country and culture and in this regard, the Americans […]

GIADA TIMEPIECES: INFUSED WITH STYLES AND COLOURS OF THE NATURE

Furla

Our last post spoke about the Club and the Eva, the two of the most popular collections from the Furla range. Today, we are going to take a look at the Giada. These watches are built on the Summer’s motifs and inspired by the vividness of the nature, bringing you that pop-glam touch. The Giada […]

Furla: An unknown face of women’s fashion accessories

With the global luxury accessories market gaining momentum over the past couple years, it has brought back some of the blockbuster brands that went hiding during its lackluster years.  They return with impressive, new designs and this proved to be quite a bit of a Cinderella story. The comeback is a successful one despite them […]

The Italian side to affordable luxury

It goes without saying that Gonzo is not particularly an Italian watch fan. He might like a Brioni suit to wear; he also would prefer an Alfa-Romeo to drive around in; but when it comes to wristwears, he prefers to go Jap or Swiss any given day. However, this time he wouldn’t deny his preference […]

Gonzo’s Chronograffiti: V

Gonzo’s Chronograffiti: V

In this post – unlike earlier ones – we will discuss how – over recent years – a few people complicated an invention and added to an already brilliant repertoire. TAG Heuer needs a mention in this regard before anybody.   There’s double the fun with everything in count of two – mainspring barrels, wheel […]

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 […]

Morellato:  Preciousness with precision

Morellato:  Preciousness with precision

A watch doesn’t just mark time. It does much more than that; most importantly, it gives a fair idea about who you are and your preferences. It hits the subconscious! It’s not just a man’s thing anymore; who are usually happy with its utilitarian properties, build and material qualities. To men, ornamentation is purely technical. […]
