Tissot Powermatic 80: Easy to give into its luxurious temptations

As I’ve gotten deeper with gentlemen on the more serious sides of human nature, I gradually found out such men to be always on the lookout for the perfect tool. Be it something to fix up gadgets; or something to travel. To play! Or to manage their time! At times, they want in all simplicity […]

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 […]

Gonzo’s grumblings: Are Emporio Armani watches a worthwhile purchase?

“-Oh, not another horologist’s rant!” Not everyone is interested in the technical contents of a watch – which I understand – some are not at all! All they want is sporting a nice timepiece; good to look at. Armani watches – I find them to do that in style – are quite in line in their overall stylistic existence, some being extraordinarily understated and cool. There’s no doubt about watches from this Italian designer being successful!

Ask Gonzo about Watches (XXXIX) – Buy one or several of them?

Gonzo expresses his views on experimentation. Q. Hi Gonzo! I come straight to the point: Is it owning that one watch or trying out several different watches and never fixing upon one that earns more credit among the watch experts? By experts I mean those who make and those who appreciate and collect, both. A. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A return gift for the wedding ring

So many people hold this wrong notion that a gift out of gratitude or love must be a Patek Philippe or Rolex or a Lange but frankly speaking, a Swiss timepiece, most of the times is not the best option to go for. There are many in this world that qualifies to be called a […]
