Gook watches are inferior to genuine Swiss, American, Swedish and Danish watches.
I'm sure you do grampa. Pic unrelated, a watch that isn't worn by old dustfarts. Get with the times!

Thinking about getting a good watch, for the first time
Problems: kinda poorfag , looking for a cheap (1k euromoney max) good looking watch , any tips/advice/why shouldn't i buy a tissot?
I'm just going to buy what I like, not what some shill wants me to like
But anon, that watch looks like shit (especially on that manlet wrist of yours, or is it fucking big?)
New Amphibia SE, very military styled. Hands look like they're the same as on the Neptune.
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.
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.
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.
This is pretty much the only one I wear any more. Sometimes I wear a slightly better terrorist with NATO but only for situations where this one could easily get damaged.
Recently found this watch helping an uncle move. As someone who doesn't know much about this shit, can anyone tell me how I did?
I was at a mall yesterday and I found an Invicta boutique.
The entire fucking store was painted in that disgusting shade of yellow. Also they were selling their watches at basically twice what Amazon has them for. What a shitty brand.
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.
Servicing a mechanical chronograph is always very expensive.
>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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Everytime i get along with a girl something always gets fucked up, one time it's my watch, the other i break my phone and now my feelings. Fuck this shit.
So i came across a Casio Titanium MTH-1020, and is this thing really worth that money?
the band broke on this recently, I really need to get it fixed
I'm too shy and sjw to rape girls senpai.
The phone broke as it fell from my pocket while i was getting along with a girl and the watch got beaten against a wall on another time.
Do it faggot it's pretty nice
>Omega invented stripes
I'm pretty sure a lot of watches fit that description.
Hows the build quality of Tiger watches?
The dial reminds me of this Fortis, only for way less.
The problem with that one, (if the case is the same as the H32515135) is the lug to lug size, 50 mm. I have cute wrists so the lug to lug matters a lot for me. Thanks anyway it looks really good actually.
mmm the Orient Symphony or Bambino don't have any lume, but they fit the rest of the bill.
Guess some nice Orient Start with these requirements might exist, but i haven't the faintest idea what model.
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).
she didn't fucked up my watch, i managed to do that myself while fucking her shit up though.
anyway it just sucks now because on new years eve she told me she was getting back with her ex.
But he wasn't dating her at the time. But yeah thanks anon. I need a new bezel, miss using the Seiko.
I bought this for my wife when she had my son. Pic related.
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.
Is there a brand that has a reputation for being tough or should I just buy shit tier Casios and replace them when they break?
here it is again a little closer
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
If you're so affluent and she's left handed why didn't you get her a left handed watch?
I guess you don't know how to use a chronograph. You use the pushers to start and stop it not the crown you twat
>unwind the crown
>to use the chronograph pushers
You have no fucking idea what you are talking about. Please stop embarrassing yourself.
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.
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.
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.
Ok so I guess he wants a dressy sports watch that he can wear with a suit. No need to be so anal.
You can try to find a used Lew & Huey Riccardo. They have a modified ST-19 seagull chrono that they made into an automatic. QC on the Riccardos is pretty good (there were plenty of bad ones but they were basically all replaced under warranty) and it's a Venus movement so still possible to get watchmakers to service them.
Looking for a watch that looks like the Nomos Club, looks like a Timex weekender done right.
Thinking about getting the meme watch after i get my first watch, thoughts?
I have a komandirskie and a strap on the way, had a casio on the way too but I backed out of it because I don't really need a third digital watch. What is something cool I can get for $36.75 or under shipped? I'm looking at shit on ebay and watchrecon
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?
>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
Cant wait to be dissappointed in my orient, probably 15th watch im going to own, but seller is slow as fuck...
Date is must but it should be centered above 6 o clock. I like the orient crest, adds flair, like rolex logo. Water resist should be on the back of the case. Yes I ignore nazi guide line to type b design
Seiya is a good place to buy from. If you don't mind waiting a bit, the Alpinist also comes up on Massdrop every once in a while. I got mine for about 100CAD off the typical going price.
Just got this yesterday. Except it doesnt go up to 2012, only 2000.
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.
Just seems like a pretty damn shitty chrono, then. If you have to take it off your wrist to use the chronograph, you could
>just use your phone
at that point.
To be honest tho haven't ever thought of screw down pushers that way before.
Awesome! I really am admiring the green dial on this watch. After i get my first watch (a Hamilton) i think this will definitely be my second watch to the collection. But thats quite some time away since i refuse to buy a watch until 6 months after the previous watch i buy (just so i don't go spending all my money on watches and so i can appreciate the watch i had previously bought) But by the sounds of things this will probably be my next watch.
What color should I get? I'm going to pull the trigger on this bad boy

It's actually 4 bucks when you click on a color, only the weird triangle see through one is 2 bucks.
It is between the green and the black for me.
those places don't count
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.
Nevermind, I settled on a white C shock
>not getting an S shock
a bit pricey, with my leftover money I was able to afford these sick knife pens
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.
anything wrong with ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005FEYB2Y ) I do a lot of /out/ stuff, hiking and camping with dog mountain biking so looking for something that will last, any reason to avoid this?
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.
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.
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 like it!!
I hope you'll enjoy it.
Congrats!! Since the watch is not that valuable, you could open it and mod it yourself to display years currently. This is /g/ after all, isn't it?
I have traditional instruments to measure the rate of my watches. Could you explain how does this app works? Thanks.
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.
Started paying attention to fashion for the first time in my life, needed a starter watch or whatever to just wear around with most everything. how bad did I fuck up?
The INOX sounds cool but the "test videos" on Victorinox's website for this watch are hilarious. Why just drop the watch off a third-story railing when you can inflate a balloon to lift it, and then bring in a a guy with a vest, a feathered hat, and a bow and arrow to pop the balloon with an arrow?
For a starter, it's not bad. I'd look for better quality next time.
Best of luck with whatever choice you make. Keep us informed and please share pics.
Their publicity is kinda bollocks, but fun to watch.
That was precisely my question. Can a shitty micro inside a phone (mines are shitty at least), replicate the use of the ones of a (traditional) timegrapher? Honest question.
Then you have never seen a terrorist Seiko, the thing is horrid.
>We have different tastes m8. That been said, please do share YOUR beatiful watch, taste guru.
>Mfw almost no one knows this watch was designed like this for a particular reason and it fullfils it's intention greatly.
I really don't care about media scandals purposely manipulated by bad press. What I can tell you is that, like some others here, I'm going to courses of watchmaking and I had my watch opened and serviced in front of me by my teacher, a renowned watchmaker, and the components didn't looked unfinished at all, but quite nice actually.
>Can a shitty micro inside a phone (mines are shitty at least), replicate the use of the ones of a (traditional) timegrapher?
It's not the recommended solution, but yes it does work. See my other post. >>52222584
>Now I should solder a contact microphone, but I don't have a piezo nor a 4-pole audio plug.
I see now. Well, at least for me phones are not reliable even with a call hehehe. This app fever is strange for me. I also take photographs as a hobby and a freind of mine suggested ditching my exposimeter in order to use the one on his phone. Needless to say the pics were incorrectly expose and, since I was taking film that day, literally the whole set was useless.
>Rustic artisan movement
>how collectible the fucked up ones will be in a few years
>loosing faith in humanity here
I normally wouldn't overpay for an Invicta, but I got this one on the cheap, and I like it's design.
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 $150 from your local jeweler and you dun goofed tho.
I love my Vostoks. 420 cases are quite modest in size.
It really depends if the device your imitating with your phone contains specialized hardware or not. I can't imagine a phone's camera is as good as whatever your light meters have, nor is the internal mic as good as a contact microphone with preamp, but at least with the latter you can't really fuck up the sound of a ticking watch.
>I don't believe in buying cheap K-Mart crap
>buys cheap K-Mart crap
Was it "on sale" too?
This faggot again.
So how is your investment for 30 years doing?
Still wearing it and getting more scratches than there already are?
No no, i lik rolex and such, but this faggot knows why he deserves being laughed at.
And should cost about the same as one. Nomos looks like dogshit, exception is this model, but the price is silly.
I don't care about the inhouse shit. Just one of many marketing stunts to make a brand seem interesting.
Orient does things inhouse too, and? why are they not asking several K$ for their watches? Fuck nomos, they make watches for special little snowflakes.
But anon it's I N H O U S E
Never mind that it's an inhouse copy of an existing Peseux movement and that a handwinding subdial second movement is pretty much as basic and simple as it gets and there is absolutely nothing unique about it that necessitated building it themselves.
Well, new try since last post didn't come through.
So what do you guys think of Helgray? Canadian kickstarter company that make some nice watches.
I ordered mine during the summer and it has been my daily driver ever since. Quality is not bad, and it's not too flashy either.
Pic related, my Helgray Silverstone
If this are my shekels, why not?
>BTW I don´t like hommages more than I don't like replicas
>but at least with the latter you can't really fuck up the sound of a ticking watch
This is true, and it made me laugh. hehe
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.
I know have almost 20 high-end pieces and several more affordable ones. Some people call me paranoid but when your collection starts reaching the half a million bucks pricetag, you start taking precautions.
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.
Apparently, Nomos prices aren't a feature, but the consecuence of a better finishing of the movements and better materials overall. See this thread around the middle:
I remeber their Kickstarter. I was tempted to chip-in, but decided to wait further until reliability was put to test. I like your watch and is good to see others supporting the independants. Cheers!!!
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.
Congrats dude!! Hope you enjoy it greatly.
I'm curious m8. As a pal of yours, I'm genuinely curious to your watch collection, how do you afford it? Is you're law firm business venture serious that successful? Have you made your fortune in other investments? Or have you financed your collection with business capital
>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.
Oh, and btw I don't invest in other things, nor do I speculate with watches. I fear I'll fuck it up and loose shitloads.
I remember it too.
Another old fag with a question here, why exactly did you leave to /fa/ and why did you return?
My Amphi on an autist triggerer. I'll be going out to shovel snow, might switch to my terrorist on a nato for that, so I can wear it on the outside of the glove like an operator for tactical timekeeping.
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...
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.
How much can I be expected to spend for a slim medium-wide euro/american automatic with smooth movement and lume and a comfy wristband?
A timer or solar power is a bonus.
Don't need a brand rec, just a budget.
Hamilton guy here, hopfully will be unboxing the Hamilton later since when they delivered the watch, i wasn't home, so they gave it to my neighbor to look after and then to give it to me once i returned home. I just went to my neighbors but the old fucker isn't home. So once i see he's returned I'll go grab it off him and open it for you all.
The straps he sells on his site are great though, very good quality. The watches he sells look interesting too, though a bit of a gamble.
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. Am happy they gave the package to him instead of my other neighbour. I had a package delivered once with the same situation accept their 7 year old kid opened it, I wasn't happy.
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?
Well, it is. Go check by yourself m8, but don't say I didin't warn you.
>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.
get triggered bruh, also strap cost more than watch :^)
while I agree when it comes to, like, modern submariner (and lookalikes), I think leather just looks good on amphibias and some others
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
Good points, my the 5206 in my LM Special has shock protection as well, I was just curious as to whether greater resistance to minor shock induced regulator movement was a side bonus from the presence of a micro-adjuster.
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.
>mfw I'm actually encouraging a home invasion
Better have a good lawyer m8.
>strap cost more than watch
I'm currently eyeing the possibility of adding a second A.L&S, a first Patek or another independet, maybe Laurent Ferrier or Kari Voutilainen. I was already in a Laurent Ferrier waiting list, but I may sell my rights, only time will tell.
Not really, ti just makes the adjustment more precise, which is a plus.
Dude, NY is no playground. What if Tyrone decides to invite himself to my house?
No smartwatch pls
>If you like it, then fucking wear it.
Be sure to be aired in the six o'clock news, so I can keep track of you.

>090 on brown leather
According to Google it's not as bad.
I like you lawyerfag. You are rich and educated and altouh you could talk down any of us poorfags for our watches you never mock. Youre funny too.
Im gay btw. ;-)
Everyone shills the fuck out of Seiko but what about other brands. What about Oris? I am looking at their classic line something with a white face on leather strap. Brown maybe. Seems to be 750 or more US.
Look what i just got from my neighbour fellow anons. Also sorry i didn't open it from the box it was filled with packaging shit so i threw it away before i made a mess
Just took it out the main box and instructions manual fell out.
Just taken off the shitty glass cover, its a pretty nice watch, didn't expect the khaki to be so light weight and thin, am glad i got the mechanical version though
One last picture of the watch and strap, thinking about switching out the strap with a nice brown leather strap.
I went out to see if he got home and his car was there, he asked what it was and told him it was a watch i had ordered Friday. 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.
If you want the true story i climbed in through his window and threatened him with a bat to give me my watch back. Old fucker didn't expect a thing.
Forgot the pic but am sure you're familiar with the watch.

Jeez, Hamilton. Give us 10 bar or at least a display back.
My apartment is getting increasingly crammed with redundant shit. I have to clear something out at some point...
