You're broke and you crave a small chronograph.

What do you pick?

Finding balance

Since getting my Alpinist, I haven't been wearing my "Kexplorer" (K for "Korean") much. Being a clomage is a minor thing; more important to me is the...

A joke,

that isn't strictly watch-related, but it sure does remind me of a certain brand founded in Switzerland by a Pole and a Frenchman. 😀

I wonder how would a bronze bezel look on a steel watch, since the bezel is transformed most by the patina. But the colour effect with steel would be definitely novel.

I never got extended date windows, but I do get it here. It's a smiley face!

Ya, first G deffo Square or Casioak.

Square:

  • For small medium wrists

  • Classic shape

  • Basic G has basic functions and some quirks like a recessed A button, but there are many variants with solar, bluetooth, radio, and combinations thereof

Casioak

  • Noticeably bigger, but not too big for a medium wrist

  • Analogue legibility (if you pick one with a good contrast

  • Back light can be used as an improvised torch

  • Doesn't have the Square's quirks and gains a few more functions, but sports a miniscule, usually negative auxiliary display

  • Also available with bluetooth and solar

Flieger crown, field case, divee dial, rally strap. It really is four watches in one. 😀

A niche watch, but if Swatch approximated it with a quartz movement and sold it for 200 €, it would perhaps be more popular than Thrifty Fathoms. I love the case and the strap. The dial is a nice bonus.

I finally got my Timex badge.

It took me longer than I thought... apparently they're not as popular as Casio, despite having some really cool offerings. Worse production value and...

Linear and circular logos - what are your favourites?

There have been posts about disliked brand names, I think it's time we appreciated good logos. There are linear ones, which are elongated, mostly for...

Which Casio World Time do you prefer?

The most basic Casio digitals have one thing that G-Shocks lack: Under-sleeve wearability. From the other side, they have just one alarm, only 1h stop watch, no timer and usually lousy back light. I h...

Who makes the best affordable dive watches?

Citizens are brutish, Seiko have QC problems, Orient lack ISO certification. And AR. And they could do something about the small crowns on some models. But they're all great. Who is the best, though?...

Swiss watch expert Jose Pereztroika (yes, that is a real name) is known to all who are interested in vintage swiss watches at even marginal level. And...
