The perfect Chronograph - El Primero | VARIO

The perfect Chronograph - El Primero | VARIO

How hard is to find the perfect chronograph? Well very, it has to be manual for the thinness and big for legibility, but does it really works? I would argue that automatic and 38mm would be perfection but then if the chronograph is not integrated and has a module on top of a base movement, then thickness arrives, then with a small canvas under 42mm like the beloved Omega Speedmaster, everything becomes cluttered, just to close together, but not with the El Primero. I decided that if I was going to add a chronograph to my collection it had to...

A Submariner replacement or a great diver? The Bremont Supermarine S301 | VARIO

A Submariner replacement or a great diver? The Bremont Supermarine S301 | VARIO

I sold my Rolex Submariner, there I said it. It was not an easy choice and I have to say that prices in the secondary market really helped me to make the decision but was it the right one? And if it was, what can I replace this beast with? It was not an easy task to be honest, I loved my Sub and I really believe is the most iconic watch a person can own but if we overlook the hype of one of the coolest watches out there, we will see that is a bit big, cumbersome and...

A great vintage collaboration: The Yema Superman by Worn and Wound | VARIO

A great vintage collaboration: The Yema Superman by Worn and Wound | VARIO

Yema is often a brand that we forget about when we talk about vintage and modern watches, they have done a monumental re launch over the last years and many of their products are really incredible, I visit them in World Time UK and their in-house caliber alongside with the great and unique Superman diver were very refreshing. The French brand has launched a new collaboration with Worn and Wound and I have to say it is one of the most good-looking additions to their catalogue, they do offer a blue version as a non-limited edition but I think the...

Some Watches Are Meant To Be Gold, The Seiko Alpinist I VARIO

Some Watches Are Meant To Be Gold, The Seiko Alpinist  I VARIO

There are many things that change and the one that does more often is taste. I could attribute that to knowledge, but in reality, is that age pays a big part as well (as much as we hate to admit it). Age is the key factor why I like more muted watches, when I started this hobby it was all about open backs (or fronts) to see the mechanism, big bold pieces dominated my wrist at beginning but on the other hand gold watches seemed somehow old, conservative, and more for let say the older gentlemen. Time past by and...

Give Your Casio Royale AE1200WH A Whole New Look | VARIO

Give Your Casio Royale AE1200WH A Whole New Look | VARIO

Casio’s AE1200 is one of those series that watch lovers will have a hard time not purchasing. Averaging a $25 price tag depending on the specific model, they’re insanely affordable. Plus, with 100m water resistance, world time, a 10-year battery life, and LED functionality, you get everything you paid for and more – even after its plastic casing has been knocked around for a bit. The biggest ‘issue’ owners may have with these watches is that out of the box, they look like they’re worth $25. Maybe $30. But Vario has found a way to up the elegance, and best of all, you can do it...
