Calibre 9S86 in something very elegant, robust and traditional

Whoever has known about Seiko’s earlier high-beat watches must also know a thing or two about the Calibre 9S85; its superior accuracy came with an enhanced resistance to external shocks. So, when Seiko stepped up a level introducing the Calibre 9S86, you can pretty well anticipate their glee! The difference this time was an incorporated

Prospex soars higher with the most desirable combinations

For quite some time, watch nerds all over the world were wondering if it’s at all possible to get everything within a single package. By everything, they meant radio-sync, solar-powered movement, world-time, chronograph and a whiz wheel, which is a rotary slide rule bezel to allow easy calculations and conversions. They can be distance, fuel

Gonzo goes SOLAR!

Readers, Let’s start on a simple note. ‘Tis Watch Gonzo who writes for this blog; not Watch-Guru! Occasionally, people ask for his opinion but his replies are just his own realisations and not the verdict. It’s true that his pen gets exceedingly sharp with few but don’t blame him for that. Some queries just don’t deserve a better response. He welcomes varied perceptions, thoughts

Citizen Caliber F900: A bit more push over the edge

Part- II Let me finish this one off! I was quite astonished to see people still stuck in the past, considering GPS-watches good enough only for adjusting to a time-zone that you’ve selected manually. Nay, my friend; the F900 is tad brainier than that! It is able to update and shift to the time-zone that

Citizen Caliber F900: A bit more push over the edge

Part- I Folks, Let me apologise first about disappearing without a notice; about the long absence from the MAW blog. Life hasn’t been easy for the past few days and it reminded there are more things in the heaven and earth than watches alone. However, on the brighter side, this French leave allowed a comeback

Smart or Simple – Who wins the game?

This again happens to be another futile attempt at covering the occasional – now a bit old – dire warnings of modern electronics sucking out the lifeblood off watch-crafting as we mostly know it today. If that’s a little hard to understand, it is the chewed-dry remnants of the smart versus classic watches debate. The

Ask Gonzo ’bout watches – XXXV

Again, it’s Gonzo! Sorry guys, I mean no ‘j’ business, but this whole AGAW session gives our friend a trip that lasts for at least a few hours post answering buyer/reader queries. We enjoy his (sometimes) thoroughly interesting replies and (occasional) columns but not the trip he takes on us. The only way to keep

Expensive watch wearing….revisited

Some of you who are kind enough to bear through the rumblings every week or twice often hold a grudge against Gonzo that he is averse to the use of plastics, circuit boards and batteries! True. If they belong to irresponsible, disposable watches. Else, he values them for almost the same reasons you value them

GPS Time Correction: Who does it best?

Each of the big three Japanese watch-giants (Citizen, Seiko & Casio) offers something or the other that directly connects to GPS satellites to make your perception of time as accurate as possible. They sync to the GPS signal to tell you the correct time. But, the way each of them work is different; are very

Cost: From a vegan perspective

“Hamesha itnie kimti ghadiya kaheko lagaata?” – “Why do you put on such costly watches every time?” Things are not much different in India. Here, too, the craft of watch-making comes under siege at times. Stepping into the battleground thus created is a matter of choice; to defend it; plain, cold logic is enough. Their

Fit, finish, fervour – As close to flawless

The Spring Drive is not quite your usual thing. The seconds-hand is its giveaway; despite its relation with quartz, it makes small, multiple jumps, instead of one every second. It gives the Spring Drive a mechanical glide; completely smooth, totally silent. How does that go? Spring Drive, at its core, is mechanical every bit. There’s

Casio G-Shock Steel: A more grown-up G-Shock faired to fit a day-to-day wearing

The Baseline: G-Shock is not always about loud colours and lewd sizes; now it’s also about simple stainless steel cases and bracelets. There’s some protective black urethane surrounding the case sides and lugs, but it is steel that rules for the most of it. There are times even the most ardent, professional-standard Casio G Shock
