New Amphibia SE, very military styled. Hands look like they're the same as on the Neptune.
>>
>>52211686
Because modern Tissot is basically the "I want to upgrade to an Omega" brand. Modern Visodates are okay, but you can get better for your shekels.


1K euroshekels are not quite poorfag tier but lets go on. Seiko SAR series are quite nice for the money (SARB033,SARB035,SARX015) or the much better SDGM series (SDGM01 and SDMG03 as examples). Orient Star is another option, some nice Hamiltons as well.

>>52211903
They seem to keep releasing some new SE model every couple of weeks or so. I really like the blue 120 case one they issued a while back.
>>
>>52211826

Please point out a single other similarity between the Seiko SARX015 and the Omega Aqua Terra other than a vertically striped guilloche dial. I'll wait.

I really want a speedy but I don't want to take the mountain jew's cock in my ass.
What are the service intervals on the hand wind movement in the hesalite version? Are services expensive?
Does the movement have the same problem as other column-wheel chronos where the chrono seconds can snap back to the wrong position and require a service to fix?

I like the box which is why I kept it. It is in fact much a much better quality box than the one my orient came in.

Seikos and casios cost around >150% the amazon price in stores too.

>>52212345
Servicing a mechanical chronograph is always very expensive.
>>
>>52212365
>Servicing a mechanical chronograph is always very expensive.
I'm considering just going with a seagull chrono, simply because it's cheap enough where I can run it into the ground without worrying about getting it serviced. I can probably do the service on my own without the worry of fucking it up.
But alas, Alpha has pretty awful QC.
>>
So who else is hyped as fuck for the Seiko turtle re-release?
I didn't like it at first, but the gold on black has really grown on me.
>>
>>52212345
Like >>52212365 said, servicing a mechanical chrono is always expensive, especially from a big brand like Omega. However, I fail to see the connection between it being a column wheel chrono and the second hand not resetting properly. If anything that'd be a problem with how the hand was broached or if something is messed up with the reset hammers.
>>
>>52212425
It seems to be a problem with column-wheel chronos for some reason.
The seagull chrono movement also has a pretty big problem with resetting

There is no way to avoid mechanical chronograph being fairly high-maintenance. All you can do is buy used so at least you aren't paying the massively inflated prices for a new one.
>>
>>52212422
Are they even out in the US?
>>
>>52212628
Am I correct in thinking that quartz chronos are vastly superior to mechanical ones?
Regular movements are one thing, but mechanical chronographs are inaccurate in their stopwatch function, are high maintenance and are fairy fragile. I know the speedmaster is pretty rugged but it's the exception.

Depends on the movement.

My Seiko 6138 hasn't been serviced in like 20 years and it still works great.
>>
>>52212675
Really I think the mechaquartz movements are the best of both worlds, I'd like to see traditional quartz chrono movements just die off. You get the same pusher feeling and snap back of a mecahnical with the low cost, maintenance requirements, and high accuracy of quartz.
>>
>>52212703
Yeah but the 6138/6139 has that retarded clutch related design flaw. Otherwise solid movements though.
>>
>>52212726
Mechaquartz still has the problem of resetting incorrectly. It's also pretty impossible to service on your own or have a watch maker do it for you, you'll be stuck sending it back to Seiko. It happens fairly often too; sometimes out of the box from shock during shipping.
>>
>>52212771
Why service it though? The movements are dirtass cheap seeing as they're in $100 watches.
>>
>>52212759
Yea, but you can minimize the risk by keeping the chronograph running until you need to use It. Doesn't remove it but should help extend life a bit
>>
>>52212818
Yup.

Still need to be careful with the resets as well.

Really not that expensive for what you're getting, a handwindable automatic movement with sapphire glass which isn't a Seiko.

But if you're going to get buttfucked by customs, some sellers might be willing to mark it as a gift or as a watch with no battery (That worked once to be fair).

Amphibia with original bezel, think I prefer it to the replacement Seiko bezel, the crystal stands out a lot more and the watch is fairly slimmer.

I'm looking for a durable watch that can take being smacked into stuff and is waterproof. I'm tired of pulling my giant phone out to look at the time but I don't want to end up destroying the watch either.

I use pushers just fine on my right hand, maybe she's fucking left handed moron.
>>
>>52215011
You can't use the pushers without unwinding the crown. You don't wind or unwind the crown while the watch is still on the wrist, or you stress the stem. If you had the slightest idea what you were talking about you would know this. Also, if you want to, you can do all of this while it's still on the wrist if you don't have any respect for the watch. You'd know that too if you could afford a proper watch. Finally, the chronograph doesn't actually get much use in real life. If you had life, you might know that too.>>52215011
>>
>>52215026

If you're so affluent and she's left handed why didn't you get her a left handed watch?

I got her a rolex daytona because they look good on a girl and it's what she wanted. I don't know how to use a chrono because I don't own one. It's hers. When she adjusts it she takes it off her wrist. I've never seen her time anything with it, or at least I haven't paid attention and I have better things to talk to her about. Find me a opposite-handed Daytona you embittered weirdo. Alternatively, explain why you think she would find it harder to use on her right wrist than on her left.
>>
>>52215140
In the UK, the market is so rigged that there is little or no depreciation, but a sub is a very sturdy watch; it'll last forever. So yes prepare your anus
>>
>>52214957
Casio G-Shock is good, any quartz Seiko with the 7n43 movement (get it with a hardlex crystal and 100m water resistance for the case), the Sinn UX series, any chrono with the Lemania 5100 movement (but as they are older make sure they get tested for water resistance). The other anon is right- a Rolex sub with no date is quite tough. The ETA 2824-2 and 2801-2 series are pretty tough for autos- I've banged mine about with no trouble (Longines Conquest) except for all the dings and dents on the case.

There's a guy on Watchuseek who's been torture testing his Seiko auto (I think it has a 4r36 movement) and it's stood up to all sorts of shit including chopping wood.
>>
>>52215214

crown/pushers. whatever. It's a 116523 and the chrono pushers are screw down. Like I said, it stresses the stem to use it on the wrist. If you had ever handled one without being thrown out of the shop you would know this.

You can try to find a used Lew & Huey Riccardo. They have a modified ST-19 seagull chrono that they made into an automatic.

So, here's a technological question for those of you who know something about mechanical movements:

Does the presence of a micro-adjuster for regulation on a mechanical movement tend to increase that movements ability to hold a state of regulation by holding the regulating arm more firmly in place than it would be held without one?

I.e. is it more resistant to accidental movement of the regulating arm because the arm itself becomes harder to move when a micro-adjuster is present?
>>
>>52219323

>>
>>52219427
>I.e. is it more resistant to accidental movement of the regulating arm because the arm itself becomes harder to move when a micro-adjuster is present?
If you're referring to a swan-neck regulator then yes, that's the intention. It doesn't work nearly as well in real life, but it does make regulation easier. Some seagull movements have it, check out the Marina Militare

I love it. Very unique and keeps generally good time. I say generally because it seems to fluctuate a lot, some days it gains only 1 or 2 seconds, others maybe 7 or 8 seconds, or more depending on how I lay it at night. But most of the time it averages to about +4s/24hrs, so overall really accurate.
The sapphire crystal, 200m water resistance, screw down crown, upgraded balance wheel spring, compass bezel, and distinctive looks make it stand out in the SARB line and a really solid watch for the money. My only real complaint is that the lume marker at 12o'clock isn't unique, which makes time-telling at night a little more difficult, but that's a minor gripe. Plus the stock strap is crap, but there's lots of other options.

There's a few. Clock Tuner I particularly noticed works very well while Wildspectra just reads noise. I believe Tickoprint uses the same implementation of beat detection, while Wildspectra was repurposed rather than purposefully built for it. There's a few more on iOS as well, fags.

Now I should solder a contact microphone, but I don't have a piezo nor a 4-pole audio plug.

Why don't companies make quality digital watches anymore?
It's either plastic chingchong shit or one ugly design out of a whole line. Life is suffering.

>>52223863
They're not "in" anymore in the same way they used to be.

People either want cheap watches, ironic retro watches or rugged utilitarian watches when it comes to digital.

G-Shock is still great at the last thing.

That said I'm sure someone still makes decent digitals with steel case etc.

This guys kinda have a point. With the exception of an iconic vintage piece given to me as a gift, digital watches are the one kind of timpiece I don't own, not do I want to own, in my entire collection. I respect other's appreciation on this watches and I'm sorry, but IMHO they are horrid crap.

In order to be at least "passable" they have to have a set of hands, wich are refered as hybrid (a digital display AND a set of traditional hands) but even then the design is reeeeally ugly.
>>
>>52224511
Just curious, but how much does your celadon imperial weigh? The weight isn't given on their site.
>>
>>52224244
If you are hunting for a truly resistant piece you should look into the Victorinox INOX line recently launched. I was invited to a demonstration of their resistance and I was greatly impressed; I got to keep the watch with me and abuse it for two more weeks after the testing and I couldn't manage to brake it, and believe me, I tried.

In my opinio the gratest quality of it i that it doesn't look like shit. Pic related.

The only problem is that it's worth 5 more times than the watch in your publication, but I think it's also worth the effort.

Cheers.

>>52224543
I'm sorry but I can't properly answer to your question right now, as the watch is in the bank's vault with almost the rest of my collection. Since I pass through practically everyday, I'll try to carry a weight and aswer you over this starting week. What I can tell you is that it's not heavy at all, I would say average for a medium steel piece. Again, sorry.

I have traditional instruments to measure the rate of my watches. Could you explain how does this app works? Thanks.

>>52219427
Theoretically speaking, devices to micro adjust the watch (like a swan neck or a regulating screw) can improve the resistance of a watch to shocks, but they'll also suffer more damage and, in the event of a contundent hit, will demand further (and more expensive) repair.

The proper way to protect the escapement and balance wheel modules from a shock is through shock absorving devices like the "incabloc" construction or with designs that keep the movement relatively isolated, like the rubber gaskets on the Glashutte Original Impact Chronograph. Pic related.

It's really fucking big though. Even for a chronograph. I plan on buying another watch that's more subtle. I'm looking at Timex or Vostok right now. I don't believe in buying cheap K-Mart crap, but I'm not exactly going to spend over $50 on a watch.

Well to be fair, what makes fashion watches _so_ bad is the overpricing. If you get an Invicta or a Fossil at $50, it ain't exactly a bad deal if you get one with a decent enough design (or at least one that you like)

Buy them at $150 from your local jeweler and you dun goofed tho.

It really depends if the device your imitating with your phone contains specialized hardware or not. I can't imagine a phone's camera is as good as whatever your light meters have, nor is the internal mic as good as a contact microphone with preamp, but at least with the latter you can't really fuck up the sound of a ticking watch.

Don't know who is that faggot but I concur watches are not good investements, but passion. It's almost imposible to predict whic watches will become sought after and the chances of doing mistakes are sky high.
That been said, one of my watches had doubled it's price since the moment I bought it and I didn't knew until a lovely watch executive (a girl, duh) pointed it out in a GIG. It was a nice surprise, but mute, since I don't plan of ever selling it.

It's a watch for the blind and low and weak sighted. The two spheres (one on the top and one on the sides) function as a set of hands and are tactil, thus one can "sense" the hour through the fingers.

Like most micro brands, Halios, Helgray, Lew&Huey and so on, I find them great looking and refreshing, but not for the price they're asking.

At more then half that price point I could just get a Seiko SSB line mechaquartz which will most likely be more reliable and has more versatile designs. True, most of'em looks pretty boring and traditional chronograph but for 100$~200$ I can't really complain.

imho ,all in all , loves the looks and design but not worth the price.

>Is you're law firm business venture that successful?

Well, thankfully yes, but not because of my sick legal moves. Here:

I once explained that I got an internship (for which I fought with all my being) for working under the management of a small oil company when I was very young, 21 yo. It was possible due to a special program sponsored by my university.

I felt for the work hard meme and dragged my balls for two fucking years as an unpaid intern (which is, actually, kinda illegal, but whatever) while living with the aid of my parents.

This attracted the attention of my boss who eventually found out I cut a deal with HR to extend my internship for another year (the kinda illegal part, remember) for the opportunity to be considered when a mid-level position that required far more experience opened (again, kinda illegal).

Instead of kicking my ass out, he allowed this and grow fund of me. When the position finally opened, he backed himself. That was 12 years ago.

He eventually became my mentor, and already long story, short I landed a regional director for legal affairs position, where I remain for eight years.

So, after spending two years as an unpaid intern, two and a half building up through minor positions and 8 years as director I talk to my boss and told him I wanted to do something else. He opposed to this, but later agreed and let me go.

I got a job at the District Attorney's Office but that wasn't really for me so I left almost immediately. I saved a lot of my wage when I was Director so money wasn't an excuse anymore to be adventurous and fund my own firm with a couple of colleagues.

To my surprise, my ex-boss, who I now consider a second father decided to send me a lot of work, by recommending me with his friends and other business associates.

So, now my firm lands some big cases every now and then that pay so well I get to stretch my luck and grab pro-bono cases in human right affairs, my true interest.

From the top of my head:
Two AP, two JLC, an A.L&S, a Roger Dubuis, an Ulysse Nardin, a F.P. Journe, a Paneral, two Zenith, a VC, a Corum, three Omegas, an IWC, a Record, a Maison Celadon, a Piaget, an Oris, some mid-level like Longiness, Frederique Constant, MontBlanc, and several affordable ones, like Tissot, Bulova, Accutron, Citizen, etc...

>>52228170
After a really hard case that involved an accusation against border authorities and police members for human rights violations, I decided to take a sabbatical and went exploring the world. I recently came back from a two months trip to India, which I loved.

/fa/ is more autistic than ever, and my old friends aren't there anymore so, after too many posts devoted to shitty "muh minimalist" watch and iShit I came lurking here again and liked the vibe, broh.

Kek he's too old to travel, am surprised he can leave his house. He's a good man, surprisingly nice and has been friends with my family for some time.

I'm open-minded. I want a good watch. I don't want to look like I'm 9yo and think Transformers t shirts with a tie is "smart casual".

The Sarb is approaching the style I'd lean towards.

Totally flat hands/faces bore me. I like a sense of depth.

Preferably the crown won't be plain sticking out the side.

No plating. The only other colours I want to see are on the face or the hands.

A slim outer bezel is nice.

Is something solid going to start at 300 yuros?
>>
>>52228398
Well, it is. Go check by yourself m8, but don't say I didin't warn you.

>>52228559
>automatic
>timer or solar power
It's one or the others m8, unless you're referring to an alarm, which if you do it will push up the price several thousands.

If not, a Hamilton automatic will set you back less than a grand, and there are several models to chose from that fullfil your requirements.

A Hamilton seems in the same range as a SARB.

That answers my question, thanks.

They can be had for under ~ $150 USD, but remember to do your research and choose models carefully, and expect to have to pay for a servicing after you get it.

SARB 035/033, 017 might be too much
But those don't fit your "american/euro" watches (lol american watches)
What I gather from your posts, you don't want a diver
SARX015 is very beautiful imo, but a little more expensive
Orient Bambino and Union don't have lume iirc
Someone could post the poorfag watch guide, that might be useful starting point
>>

I somewhat like the "field" watch look. Lume is a must. Prefer the SARX015. Not really comfortable with the first, the diamond/triangle hands strongly remind me of an imitation I bought as a kid. I'll never shake the feeling.

Slender hands, more parallel edges are preferable.

A lighter face is preferable but I don't imagine face colour or hand shape has any impact on budget.

He seemed pretty happy about it, he has this old quartz watch he shown me, god knows what brand it was but it has a nice pearl dial, other than that it looked shit. I just thanked him for keeping it safe, he probably thought it was drugs or some shit lel.
