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
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
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
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
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.
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, 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,
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
Team says: Okay folks, so here we are again, back to business full tilt and while the rest of us are busy handling the new inventory, Gonzo agrees to shoulder the responsibilities of keeping you informed and entertained for the next few weeks. So, without further ado: Are Victorinox Swiss Army watches an appropriate choice
