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

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.

Immensely refreshing! Always

Immensely refreshing! Always

Pre-talk Gonzo recently lead us in the direction of a thorough research about some of life’s horological staples. But given – “as laid back as we all are” – as he claims, in matters of horological learning and investigations (“We are, O Gonzo; you needn’t graduate medical science or medicine to marry or whatever….),we could

Furla: Full-figured, feminine forms

Full-figured, female-friendly forms

Furla, no doubt, is a fashion watch brand, the class of watches loved and abhorred equally for their varying degrees of quality. The good ones can be really, really good indeed; reliable, accurate – with movements that wouldn’t win any beauty award contest, but might just for their steadfast perseverance. Often they will use Hattori,

For social peacocks this time!

We are now pretty much used to watches that do more than just telling the time. I’m not quite sure how many people opt for them out of pure appreciation as opposed to their sheer inability for draping around a banner with their personal details on it; in my not so humble opinion, it is

The Italian face of Luxury!

Around a couple weeks back (or longer) a question was raised by a close friend who is ready for another purchase and wanted to get my perspective on an Italian watch maker, Maserati; knowing that I often post (or, try to) for the Creation Watches Blog. This gentleman deep up to his eyeballs in motorsports

An announcement from Swatch!

An announcement from Swatch!

All these years of my obsession with watches never witnessed previously the Swatch Group letting the world know about their technical innovations until this month (Aug. 2018), where they announced about their soon to be released Nivachron balance springs! What about the mainspring, then? A mainspring powers the mechanical movement alright, but it is the

ETA Quartz movements and COSC: A requirement or an extra add-on?

On contexts of accuracy Quartz movements are typically more accurate than their mechanical brethren, but accuracy and precision; then again, are not exactly the same things. Precision is not lagging or going beyond the +X number of seconds within a given timeframe and that does not mean the variation will be consistent for each day.

Quartz: The Upper Crust of it

Why this break? Before we get to Pro-Trek, we must get some idea about high-accuracy quartz movements. We start with the plain analogs. We must get it clear right at this point that we are not discussing enforced accuracy – the kind that comes from radio-tower signals and the orbiting GPS satellites. Neither the non-standard

Does Gonzo approve of the Italian watch brands? – Team CW wonders

Luxury watches, to the most of us, do not go beyond the Swiss borders; only the truly horologically erudite glides into the French, English, German and Japanese realms and uncovers unprecedented pieces that stand ground on their own merits. Add to this list a republic in southern Europe, famous for its artworks and its luxury

Morellato: Exclusively Woman-isque

Newsleeter: Morellato: Exclusively Woman-isque

Few are there in the male-dominated world of horology who thought about creating pieces exclusively for women. Morellato banged the nail right on the head. Today, the wonderful collection of Morellato watches show that they are in business and the business is good! The most impressive collection – arguably – from Morellato is definitely the
