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...

Lorier Hyperion -The Black Bay GMT we have been waiting for? I VARIO

Lorier Hyperion -The Black Bay GMT we have been waiting for? I VARIO

GMT watches or complications are one of the most useful features on a watch, yes with the pandemic at its peak we lost the ability to travel but that doesn’t mean the functionality won't be popular again, tracking a 2nd time zone at a glance despite of the 'true' GMT discussion its less gimmicky than a diver's bezel, that said it has to be done right, a bit too thick or a bit too big and people start losing their interest, at the end it's all about ergonomics and how a watch feels on your wrist. I have been on...

High end watchmaking - The Vacheron Constatin Fifity Six Day date | VARIO

Being a watch lover has its drawbacks, these things are expensive! In the back of your head you always have that unicorn watch which can cost as much a car, not always but if you are going to dream, dream big. For me when I started this hobby, Tag Heuer was the brand to have, I am not talking the whole spectrum of watch enthusiast, but in the 90s if you were under 20 years old a plastic bezel Tag Heuer Formula 1 was the equivalent of having a Patek Philippe Nautilus 5711 today. My dad gave me one for...

Timeless HMS | VARIO Review

Timeless HMS | VARIO Review

I got to know Jonathan Kopp from Watch Is This when he reviewed my Empire dress watch. We stayed in touch and recently he told me he got his hands on a cool Swiss microbrand Timeless  Watch and asked if I would like to check out their maiden watch, the HMS. Intrigued by the Art Deco influence in the design, I said yes and Jonathan sent the watch to me via La Poste. It reached my hands in 3-4 days which is impressively fast given the pandemic. My first impression of the HMS watch is very positive. There are lots...

Why bronze and why now? The Tudor Black Bay Bronze | VARIO

Why bronze and why now? The Tudor Black Bay Bronze | VARIO

Bronze has been that kind of material that took the world like a storm, yes everyone was fixated (still is) with steel, but why? Well with a good finishing, steel it can mimic white gold (I think this is why white gold is not the most popular material now) and also the price is almost half, but again we are here for the bronze. Bronze has encountered the heart of collector because is different, is not as shiny and flashy as steel, looks utilitarian and it also ages with grace in no time. When we think about a bronze watch...
