Nomos has found its own niche within the world of watches. It is easy to see why they have gained such a strong reputation by providing unique, Bauhaus-inspired designs and quality in-house movements at relatively affordable prices. In Raman Kalra’s opinion, the Nomos Club Neomatik is one of the best watches in their collection. A perfect balance of what Nomos is all about.

It is the old age question – Rolex vs. Omega. Which brand should I buy from? Which brand produces better watches? Should I buy an Omega Seamaster Professional 300M or Rolex Submariner? Through their histories, the two brands have been going head-to-head whether it’s on design or technology. Raman Kalra explores how Omega compares to Rolex.
Until recently, Raman Kalra appreciated the Santos from afar, but lately, something has clicked, and this watch has jumped up towards the top of his wish list. By sharing his impressions and feelings, he is hoping that it may do the same for you.
Not many brands have the same depth of history as Breguet. It is one of the oldest watchmaking brands surviving today, established in 1775 by Abraham-Louis Breguet. Raman Kalra reflects on why the brand hasn’t kept up with its peers and what they can do to bounce back.
Not everyone wants to own an iconic watch. Some want to stand out for their individuality or even go under the radar. Ramon Kalra shares his thoughts on collections from some of the largest watch brands that he doesn’t feel get as much attention as they deserve.
G-Shock is a sub-brand of Casio that is designed to withstand mechanical stress, vibrations, and shocks. It’s a great affordable watch, but is it still worth buying? Raman Kalra certainly thinks so and explains why.
IWC is one of the most recognizable names in the luxury watch market. They have multiple iconic models – one of them being the Pilot’s Watch Mark collection. The Mark series began with the Mark X in 1944 and has remained somewhat constant since then. The latest in the lineup is the Mark XVIII, released in 2016. While not the newest watch from IWC, the range is iconic enough to be still talked about.
In recent years, several factors have come together resulting in the exponential rise of microbrand watches. This new microbrand wave is one of the biggest developments in the broader watch market. I would mention here that not all microbrands are equal. There are many watches out there that, to be honest, are not worth your time. However, some microbrands are getting it right as Raman Kalra highlights here.
The Rolex Milgauss, despite being one of the longest-standing offerings by Rolex, remains one of Rolex’s more under-appreciated models. Having owned a black dial 116400GV since 2016, Raman Kalra shares his thoughts on why it’s worth your consideration.
The Omega Planet Ocean launched in 2005, and in less than 20 years has gained an iconic status. Raman Kalra takes a deep dive into the Omega Planet Ocean.
