Dogged dress-watching this time

  After a few watches and countless ranting here at the MAW-blog I’m met with a crisis. I really, really need a dress watch. Not the dress-complications; it should be a plain dress watch. Gold, black and white can be a killer combo but it all depends on where you place what. For some, black,

Dress watches – Part II

Let me mention again all this is just a basic guide to dress watches although not just on the basics. It is intended for people who are graduating to manhood and past the young adult phase; it doesn’t matter if you lagged behind  a bit. It is a complete rumor that you need to know

Playing safe in the mid-tier Stygian netherworld

It is my happy chance I’ve had a few opportunities to hang around with few enlightened art admirers. I have applauded heartily at their taste and astuteness and tried picking up bits and pieces but they didn’t really teach me how to mould one’s taste into another. I’ve seen them praise their stuff vociferously yet

A recap of the watch wearing basics

I was quite flabbergasted last evening. A new but promising start-up asked me to join over a drink and chat to see if we can make it to better days together in the near future. The business talk went intense, smoky, sweet, rich and smooth, as much as the accompanying single malt. But it pained

About Time Engines

The ultimate luxury is about going Super; supercars, superbikes…do I hear super-watches? If so, then who make them and how do they look? Here, we won’t bring the question of everything being relative; from my viewpoint and purchase power, I will call the Citizen Promaster Skyhawk EcoDrive Titanium world-time a super-watch; but those with a

While there’s no doubt on the part that quartz watches exhibit a consistently higher accuracy than mechanical watches, it’s also a fact that they are not always dot on time. They can run as less as ±1 second per day to a little more (±5

Swiss vs. the Rest: The silly war continues

Till now, I’ve had mixed views from others on watches of value. While on one hand there are them who consider the $5 quartzes and digitals to be sufficient; on the other, I’ve had known the lot who won’t even give Hamilton-s a damn because of its American lineage. This, obviously, brings into mind the

My pastimes with C9F

I once came across people whose collective idea on watch collecting is confined within the Swiss mark, dim lights, champagne and silk. Now, I won’t give examples (neither should you ask for evidence. They are happy in their worlds; I must make sure I stay too) but their virulent, vitriolic fulmination towards tool watches make

Watch-ing for occassions

Someone I know is marrying this winter. That’s only a couple of months before the wedding bell rings, so a lot of hurry and scurries make the scene. The spree is driving the family to grab at anything affordable and a lot of bad purchases are a part of it. Lest you too undergoing a
