Invicta Grand Diver 3049 Review

  In this post, I’m going to write about Invicta Grand Diver review, specifically the two-tone version with reference number 3049. The Grand Diver is part of the family of Invicta’s diver’s watch. I’m pretty sure most of you already know about the Submariner-like 8928/8926 diver’s watches right?     Those are inside the Pro Diver lineup and in fact, I’ve featured both of them in my list of the best automatic watches under $200 (which you can read HERE). The watches just have so much value for money, especially if you love that Rolex Submariner look but won’t or can’t afford to pay thousandsRead More →

Bulova Accutron II Review 96A155 Alpha

  Hi guys! Today I’m writing about the Bulova Accutron II review, specifically the 96A155 Alpha model. It’s actually as a homage to the famous 1960s Bulova Accutron Spaceview watches that featured an open dial showing its tuning fork movement.     Bulova Accutron – The First Electronic Watch During the 1960s, automatic and mechanical watches are the only option. It’s a great little timepiece but with one (major) flaw: it’s not keeping time accurately. The most accurate automatic watch, the chronometers, can be too expensive for most people. Soon enough, watchmakers and engineers tried to create a new type of movement that has aRead More →

What Is Spring Drive Watch-

  Somewhere along this horology hobby, you’ll be sure to hear about this “Spring Drive” thing from Seiko which purportedly is a something truly unique and on its own realm. In my honest opinion, yes, it truly is. Just like quartz watches, Seiko just seems to innovate and create great things one after another – and spring drive watch is one of the extraordinary creation in the horological world in recent times.   So what actually is spring drive watch? To be precise, spring drive ¬†refers to a new movement created by Seiko which combines elements from automatic and quartz movements. It’s powered by mechanicalRead More →

Seiko SNZF17 Review

  Hi guys. Today I’m writing about the Seiko SNZF17 review, or the so-called Seiko Sea Urchin watch (more on that later on). It’s also widely known as poor man’s Rolex Submariner – and no, I’m not talking about the Invicta 8926 here. While the Invicta blatantly copied the Submariner design, this Seiko SNZF17 injects Seiko’s own design characteristics (specifically Seiko 5 Sports design) into the well-loved Submariner.   Above is the Seiko SNZF17 – Sea urchin   And here is the Rolex Submariner   The end result is a watch that looks like the real thing but at a very affordable price (for anRead More →

What Is A Chronometer Watch-

  Someone is not a real watch fan if he does not know what a chronometer is all about. This horological jargon is indeed a bit overwhelming at first but as I can attest, it’ll become easier as we read more and more about the world of watches.   So what is a chronometer?   Chronometer, in the easiest explanation is an accurate watch. And by the way, the term is mostly used for automatic watches¬†only nowadays.   What differentiates a chronometer and a normal watch?   It is well known that automatic watch is not the best in terms of accuracy. Normal automatic watchesRead More →

And that’s the reason why it was named “Recraft” – a line-up of watches with styles re-manufacturedRead More →

Seiko SARZ005 Review

  Hi guys! Today, I’m going to write a review about the Seiko SARZ005, one of the models in the Seiko 5 Sports lineup. So, what’s so special about the Seiko SARZ005? For a start, it has a unique design (very different than the other Seikos out there) and is an affordable automatic watch. It’s also a Seiko JDM watch.     For Seiko fans, I’m pretty sure you guys are well aware about what JDM or Japan Domestic Model means. It’s basically a watch made in Japan and is regarded as having a higher quality than Seiko watches made elsewhere (China, Southeast Asia, etc.)Read More →
