Q. Dear Gonzo, I am anything but an expert in this particular domain; maybe slightly above being completely ignorant. I look for a watch to own and become knowledgeable about why I bought it and not another. I intend to repeat the process in future and acquire the right pieces without spending tons. A decent – if possible more than that – craftsmanship is my priority lookout and then, excellent aesthetics. I specifically ask you about skeleton watches and what might be good within a thousand dollars.
Q. Gonzo my man! I have witnessed a few more Springs than you have, so bear no grudge to my endearing greet. That’s to say, I’m elder than you are. I sure am. I can bet you are not even five decades old. I’ve seen those many and another and a half. Though mainsprings and hairsprings and all other sorts of springs I’ve witnessed less. That’s what brings me here. I come to the point straight. My grandson loves the few (I’m also sure you are going to snarl at me the moment you see a couple of them) I got and now wants one of his own.
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. […]
The Tissot Heritage Petite seconde evolved over two consecutive weeks; in the sense, following a release, a re-edition was introduced to the market at a week-long gap. Last year i.e. in 2018, this Swiss brand in Baselworld showed. The dial design changes a bit in the re-edition but the basics of the Tissot Heritage Petite Seconde remains. The Petite Seconde name is for a sub-second white dial. This is done in dress watches commonly.
You could be a watch connoisseur, a collector or you might even be a snob; whatever it might – fact remains you’ll need a piece that you can mistreat, manhandle and abuse at will. Yes, of course; what could be better than G-Shocks? Or, a Seiko maybe? That’s good if you want a digital or an ana/digi combo but they go well above a hundred dollars. Here, we talk about less than hundred dollars.
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 […]

A great Mother’s Day idea is something to accompany her year round. Watches fit just right! Mother’s Day is happy time for the fortunate who received motherly love from anyone; not just from the lady who bore you in its literal sense. Or, it could be about anyone whose motherly instincts you admire. It’s about […]
There are Powermatics and there ARE Powermatics. Today, I intend to speak about the latter. The Tissot T-Classic Powermatic 80 T099 series! Why, you might ask. Simply, because I like them! I find them the most likeable among the entire Powermatic range. De gustibus non est disputandum! Not just about the esthetics; it also applies […]
You have already heard about Tissot, so let’s not waste any time telling you about that. Chances are that you haven’t heard about Tissot Women’s watches much, so here’s something which gives us some reason to chew the fat. The perfect way to describe the Tissot T-Lady Bella Ora is a work of genius; they […]
