How fucked is this movement?
This is why nobody likes assholes like you.
Honestly, it looks pretty fucked.
Got that shit right. Reposting my Amfibia 100115
Bought this an hour ago. An Archimede 42h automatic.
The blue hands are so nice.
What do you think about Hublot ?
I kinda like the classic steel Big Bang and I think that whether you like the brand or not, it is one of the iconic modern high-end sport watches with the Nautilus and the RO
Perfect for when you just have too much money and too much melanin and not much taste. Do they put as much effort into making the movement as they do into making sure all the screws are aligned?
I got a 5,000 dollar raise this year and I'm looking to upgrade my old Seiko quartz, since I want to get a mechanical how will a second hand Grand Seiko hold time? Or shall I just stick to quartz and get a King Quartz
A better pic that isn't taken with a phone.
Plan of my next couple of watches, feel free to give thoughts and suggestions.
Seiko Alpinist (in around 5-6 months time)
Maison Celadon Imperial (near the end of the year)
After them next purchases i may look into purchasing either another Seiko, Orient or go big and look into getting either a Rolex or Omega, but i haven't planned that far ahead after the Alpinist and Imperial, any suggestions?

>tfw I imagine Ivan working on a Sunday manhandling my package
I put a new crystal and a commie bund strap on grandpa's old Vostok. Too bad he died this morning. So I guess it's mine now. He got a look at it a few days ago when I mentioned it, but I'm not sure how much he got of that (Alzheimer's + TBI surgery). Also have his beat to shit Poljot in pieces on my workbench, but I'm not sure how I'll replace the balance without a staking tool nor an anvil.
No need for sympathy, or "I feel 4u bro ;_;", "my condiments" Facebook-tier replies, just telling the story of the watch and how it's now a permanent part of the collection.
>tfw living abroad for a few months because of work
>tfw missing the Ruskie babies
>tfw just took a Tissot T-Touch with me because of its functionality and compass function
On a lighter note: got two 50's Cornavins, both running, one in beautiful condition, and another that's so beat it's more like a parts donor, my guess is it was involved in a fall off a motorbike. Pic is of course the better one.
The other watch is a Ruhla digital, I also got two of those. This red one has a good movement so it's a donor for the orange one (in pieces) that is better looking externally. I'll have both running once they teach how to repair/replace/calibrate balance springs. Movement is an atrocious pin-pallet monstrosity, and they're chunky and heavy as fuck, but I have to repair at least one since both parents unironically want to wear them.
There he is. There he goes again. Look, everyone! He posted it once again! Isn't he just the funniest guy around?! Oh my God.
I can almost see your pathetic overweight frame glowing in the dark, lit by your computer screen which is the only source of light in your room, giggling like a like girl as you once again type your mfw waiting for watch reply up and fill in the captcha. Or maybe you don't even fill in the captcha. Maybe you're such a disgusting NEET that you actually paid for a 4chan pass, so you just choose the picture. Oh, and we all know the picture. The "epic" happy Akari, isn't it? I imagine you little shit laughing so hard as you click it that you drop your Doritos on the floor, but it's ok, your mother will clean it up in the morning. Oh, that's right. Did I fail to mention? You live with your mother. You are a fat fucking fuckup, she's probably so sick of you already. So sick of having to do everything for you all goddamn day, every day, for a grown man who spends all his time on 4chan posting about waiting for his watch. Just imagine this. She had you, and then she thought you were gonna be a scientist or an astronaut or something grand, and then you became a NEET. A pathetic Akari posting NEET. She probably cries herself to sleep everyday thinking about how bad it is and how she wishes she could just disappear. She can't even try to talk with you because all you say is ">mfw waiting for my new watch in the mail" You've become a parody of your own self. And that's all you are. A sad little man laughing in the dark by himself as he prepares to indulge in the same old post that he's done a million times now. And that's all you'll ever be.
Why didn't you bring all of them? I only went to Turkey for a week, but I brought my Amphi with a nato and a perlon and an F-91W as a theft-proof watch. Of course I wore the Amphibia for flying.
which GS movement do you wish to adquire?
A spring drive will keep perfect time while Hi-beat and other mechanicals will have some slight deviation.
bear in mind that GS is known for their incredible precision, even compared to most swiss brand at the same price point. So unless you are a maniac about a watch being late one second per day you shall be fine.
If second hand check when it has last been checked by a competent watchmaker though.
Because I'm paranoid as fuck and don't want to get them scratched. I am a civil engineer and have to visit some construction sites, therefore I need a shock/water-resistant and functional watch.
I use the chronometer function a lot and those Poljot chronographs can just count up to 30 minutes.
but i make the same face when i forget i'm wearing my new watch and lift my coat cuff to look at the time
>expecting my old watch
>instead it's the surprise new hotness
feels good every time
I'll probably be looking for a Spring Drive http://www.grand-seiko.com/movement/springdrive.php
I've found a couple on eBay but I'm considering getting a brand new one now since I'm a watch freak and want this to be my final high end watch ever
Just that one. They've been doing textured dials for a long time but they don't really repeat patterns.
there are vintage seikos with all kinds of cool dials, but not the exact same really
Recommend for me a watch /g/
Budget is $1000-$600
No more than two dials on it, only want hour, minute, potentially seconds, and maybe date
Either dashes or Roman Numerals
In House Movements
Looks professional, will mostly be worn with a suit.
Buy vintage, fuck modern dress watches they're big and ugly.
Ebay, but you have to sift through piles of shit. You read and research a lot to make sure you're buying something good.
depending a bit on where he lives, watch forums might be a better place to be frank
hobbyists tend to be pretty trustworthy and the watches usually haven't spent decades without maintenance
What's the consensus on Frederique Constant?
They seem like pretty good watches for the value, but it seems like most reviewers just say "meh".
WUS is the biggest one but they're a bunch of sperglords who won't sell shit until you prove yourself by being a member for 10 years and posting "wear it in good health" on their shit forum a thousand times.
Unless you're rich (and a $5000 raise being a big deal means you are definitely not rich), I'd be careful with secondhand King/Grand Seikos, parts are going to be a bitch to obtain, especially anything hi-beat, good luck finding replacement parts for that unless you speak fluent technical Japanese or just want to buy a bunch of donor watches on ebay.
Vintage swiss and american is always a much safer bet when it comes to affordable long term maintenance.
Did you just copy paste that out of a TAG brochure or something? Making it in house doesn't mean shit in and of itself especially when brands like TAG will buy movements off of Seiko and hype them up and make a bunch of noise about it being in-house. Or when Omega has ETA build movements for them but it's OK when Omega does it it still counts as in-house for them because they're all just Swatch in the end anyway.
yeah, I live in a small european country so I can utilize our own forums where I can usually go pick the watch up myself and so on
if you live in a place where you'd be buying online w/ postage from WUS sperglords then it isn't as good
I know ppl are gonna give me shit for dumping 9k on a rolex But I really like the cellini.
Smooth motion of the second hand is sexy
Good thing that type of dial was done with a lot of watches of the time, kinda like how nowadays almost every manufacturer has a diver with a Submariner dial.
Current example would be the MWC Kampfschwimmer, which I think is based on the Royal Navy issued dive watches, which are in turn inspired by the RN issue Seamaster 300's, that were like the ones I posted.
I bought pic related immediately after registering an account. 0 posts, no profile editing.
Don't be so stingy, regardless of how shitty WUS forum-culture is.
Took this in the shop. Getting it soon.
Well the Semenmaster Pro has sort of arrow like hands, which imo look pretty good.
I rate the blue omegas. But anything with orange on is just a pointless buy. Unless, you already have a collection and buy it to go with certain things. I have a friend who has one expensive watch and its an orange omega. Fucking vile for a first watch.
I just fucking shot my brains on the keyboard sorry
Nah srsly why didn't you just get a datejust you fucker, it doesn't have any classical provenance. Dogshit/10
Movements are much harder to fake than cases/dials.
If an eBay seller shows the movement, and lists it's specifications, it's less likely to be fake than if the seller is vague and doesn't show the movement.
Plus it's nice to know the condition of the movement, which can often fare worse than the dial or case
Im not an asshole for telling the guy that nobody can tell him anything useable just from sight. Even if, he needs to take it to the service anyway, so what's the point of him getting the info?
Great uncle olds shop and know the guy. Getting a discount
First expensive watch
Goes with everything
Leather strap so I don't get the links scratched when I'm out
Will hold its value
Seems like a good buy.
Was debating getting one. I'm getting a superocean heritage which is the complete opposite from the colt but I don't know. I still like the colt. For you it has sentimental value. I'm sure it'll treat you well.
Honestly, if you are going to be a sperg for 100% original parts, you have no business buying on eBay on the grounds that "they had a picture of the movement"
Anyone can slap together a frankenwatch with 100% of the parts from the same brand, or even the same model, but if you are a sperg for authenticity you're not going to accept a rotor or crown or some such thing that came from the wrong model, even though it fits.
For a $1000 second hand omega, who gives a shit honestly. If it's sold in working condition and it's a 50+ year old watch it's almost guaranteed not to be 100% original, so just buy something that runs well, keeps good time, and looks good.
Yeah I like those too, mainly because of the tiny strips of lume that go along them. I was talking about the hands that are used on the planet oceans.
Hey fellow Apple friends. I've purchased an Apple Watch on Friday which should hopefully arrive tomorrow (wishful thinking).
What applications or watch faces would you recommend? I'm coming from a Pebble Time so any voice based application may be appreciated.
Quartz will require less intensive maintainance.
You can have a nice mechanical watch for generations with the occasional tuning and oiling. Which you can have done for you for a nominal fee, or learn to do it yourself.
Quartz only needs batteries unless it is kinetic or solar. But they can lose accuracy over long periods. Probably last at least a decade without losing or gaining more than a few seconds.
eBay. Was a bit of a gamble but the guy had like 12 photos, stated that he had no documentation and that the crown isn't original. I don't care though; I love this thing.
>a nominal fee
You mean a fee that could either be more than the value of the watch (see: your average seiko/orient) or not (see: your average ALS). It really depends on the multiple of $100-500 (depending on the movement) the watch is valued at.
The other problem with mechanicals is that they really don't like magnets or impacts. Not a big deal for some people but if you have an active lifestyle or you work in IT or engineering, it is a big deal. Enjoy taking your watch to the watchmaker for degaussing because you accidentally set your watch on top of a stack of hard drives.
Who said I was being a sperg for a 100% original piece? I only like to see that isn't a two bit Chink movement inside the case.
You are right of course, but I didn't mean to imply that a correct movement meant an original one
I dunno, some guys (particularly Rolex guys) are really autistic about originality which I can totally understand if you're dropping a quarter million on an ALS Double Split in stainless steel, but not on the kind of vintage watches that your average /g/tard can afford.
Yes, that is correct. I was trying to be facetious and poke fun at the automatic watch crowd, even though I love my cheap dogshit autos.
A modern quartz is largely superior in many ways, objectively speaking, including price, cost of ownership, and durability in most cases.
There's something about a mechanical watch though
I agree, if I'm spending 500-1000 on a vintage watch, I want it to work well and look nice.
If it's movement has been repaired and had a couple parts replaced, fine, as long as it works and has most of its parts of the right brand.
iTranslate is pretty good and useful if you live in a rather diverse area like I do.
Lifeline is a pretty neat little text adventure to kill time
Shazam is another good app on the watch
Calcbot is also useful for quick calculations
Dark sky is good for hyper accurate weather.
There's really not a whole lot of apps out there that are really worth anything for it. As far as watch faces go I like the Mickey face because I used to have a bunch of Lorus Mickey Mouse watches that I ended up having to sell off a few years back when cash was tight.
here though I think we should differentiate between cheap mechanicals and high end ones
an amphibia or seiko 5 isn't really more expensive than a quartz watch, even in the long term, if we assume that one doesn't abuse it to death.
it'll last years and when the movements shit out, you throw it away and get a new one. $50 every 5-15 years isn't very expensive and arguably your quartz watch won't last forever either
high end ones on the other hand really are jewelry, collectibles and so on, rather than something you buy for the usefulness, so comparing them to quartz in that way isn't very wise
the point mostly stands for the cheap-but-not-quite-that-cheap level where you'd have good quartz seikos competing with SARBs, Steinharts and I don't know, something else in the sub-$600 or maybe $1000 range.
there the point really stands, the cheap-ish mid tier is the awkward spot for mechanical watches imo
they don't keep their value very well, probably won't be worth the cost of maintenance in the long term, yet they aren't all that cheap. one buys them if one likes them, but they're a bad purchase in most ways that can be argued
yeah but your usual decent quartz watch will still deviate ~15 seconds a month, which is indeed a lot better than nearly any mechanical but still isnt "a decade without losing or gaining more than a few seconds"
Forgive my ignorance then. I was under the impression that cheap quartz still kept a little better time than that but that's hardly noticiable compared to a few seconds a day that a comparably priced mechanical.
I didn't wear a watch for years and then I got it in my head that I wanted a mechanical one. Then another. And I still want more.
I shouldn't pretend to know dick about them though I guess.
Oh sure, its "you need to reset your watch a few times a year" (quartz) rather than "at least once a month" (average mechanical)
(this assuming you want to keep it relatively on time)
You only need to reset it when however much time it's off by actually bothers you.
Just an anecdote, but my mechanical watch has stayed consistently in sync with time.gov since I got it in november. At most it'll be 2 or 3 seconds off in a given day, so I'll let it rest in a certain position to correct for that error overnight. Maybe I just got lucky with this movement, who knows.
Vostok made some weird shit.
For €30, I'm kind of tempted to get it just because why the fuck not.
Damnit, I really think I have an addiction, 3 new watches in less than a week (ok I had been eyeing this for years on and of already but still). Just couldnt pass up on the custom Getat Watch I selected, fuck me. But hey 178$ with shipping is cheap as fuck anyway....
Got in this style without GMT and Date, and sapphire ofc.
Not a watch but I'd figured you guys would like to see the analog display on my camera, too bad the date is digital.
Nikon Ti35 or something, right? I always thought those were weird little cameras.
Or, for the same price, there's this Raketa which I expect to be about as good as the picture taken of it.
I think I want to finally get something Russian, what should I get? I'm not a big fan of bocktoks, most of them look really tacky unless you mod them to replace the hideous stock bezels and stuff. Some of the vintage Raketas are pretty cool though, should I get a Big Zero or a Copernic or one of those 24 hour ones, or is there anything else I should look at? I know there's a shitload of frankenwatches and shitty fakes and stuff, is there any specific site I should use as a reference for what the watches should look like?
This one's pretty nice if you want to stretch a bit above $100. This is the poor people version of the SARB which is the poor people version of a Grand Seiko. There may well be a cheaper alternative if you look at Pulsar or Lorus instead which are sub-brands of Seiko.
Buy a Vostok, let the Soviets occupy your wrist.
>he doesn't like beautiful blue watches
>Is it possible for a vintage watch to be a good deal
Of course. The caveat is that you should do your best to know what you're looking for. As in, make sure it doesn't have a repainted dial, that the movement is original, etc.
Then don't get a made in Russia one, go vintage and get a cдeлaнo в CCCP model.
Vintage watches often represent some of the greatest, and worst, deals in watches. As a general rule vintage rolex are way too fucking expensive.
>As a general rule vintage rolex are way too fucking expensive.
God damn you got that right ninegag. I've been hunting for a nice Oysterdate for months but every goddamn Tudor sells for way more than it's worth just because >muh poorfag rollie
Too bad I didn't inherit watchmakeranon's (RIP) when he disappeared.
By the way here's a real gem I found during my hunt. This could be yours for $625 with free shipping from Hong Kong! Special limited edition handpainted poo in the loo dial!
Somebody actually bought this one, holy shit.
What could I upgrade to? I have had this watch for almost three years now and when the battery dies I'll replace it and keep it as a backup, but I would like a better looking replacement. Any recommendations?
Anyone have good pocket watch recommendations? I bought a chinese piece for $20 and it seems to work well enough but I'm thinking I should get something with a little more class.
Go vintage or go home.
You're probably baiting anyway but lets pretend that you have a legitimate reason to want a pocket watch (I heard some years ago that they were still popular for golfers at least)
Honest question here, how do people avoid scratching their watch glass? It seems rather worrying that you could briefly brush against a wall and wreck your glass.
>take care of your items
You can't bruh, take it off if you are doing anything that will scratch it. I hammered one of mine on a door frame when I was drunk. If you get sapphire crystal you can rest a bit easier
If reccomend vintage, don't take this as gospel, but I think due to the large size of the mechanism prices aren't as high for services amd repairs
1. I don't care when it comes to my everyday watches (and they all have acrylic crystals so I can just polish out small scratches which do appear all the time, I basically polish my main watches crystal once a month or something)
2. For the watches I care for, I just don't wear them when doing risky activities
also helps that most of the time my watch will be under a shirt sleeve
tl;dr have a beater watch for when you can't avoid scratches
Ruhlas are from ancient master watchmaker who just pointed to a bunch of boxed and said "take some". Got a Baoshihua too from him, a grade-1 70's Chinese standard movement watch.
The Cornavins are from family.
Nice. Had a Ruhla, sold it. Trying to get a chronograf eventually.
Just ordered this for approximately corresponding 60 us dollars. What do you think?
At 60 I'd honestly rather pay either the same for a DW-5600 or a bit more for some other G-Shock, but I can see that one could prefer that one for aesthetic reasons. The case not being steel is a big minus in my eyes but its prices quite right for a plastic case.
Pretty good I guess?
Why havent you bought an Perpetual Regulator for 200$? Are you racist?
I want to get my first Russian watch. I'm generally not a huge fan of Boctoks except for maybe some modded Amphibias with the horrible bezels replaced, so I think I want some cheap vintage fun Raketa instead. Should I get a Big Zero, a Copernic, a 24hr, or some other model? Is there some site where I can get information on what these watches are supposed to look like so I don't end up with a shitty franken?
Too bad modern Raketa doesn't seem to be that popular. I guess they priced their watches too high for some remakes of old commie watches. I'd consider an Avtomat if it weren't 800€ or an Amphibia if it weren't 975€.
Is this a good watch for $185? The guy I'm giving it to isn't into a specific brand, but he wants something this style. I'm asking because I don't buy or wear watches, I'd appreciate some help.
its worth more than 5 though
I'd guess 50 would be an ok price
but I don't really know about giving fakes as presents and legit MINIMALIST watches tend to cost more than $50
to be honest, its probably not a bad choice in this case. the plebs don't care, that'll probably make him happy.
The problem with minimalist watches is that they get boring really fast. On a watch like a G-Shock, Zeppelin or a wacky dial Amphibia there's always something to look at.
How big are your wrists?
That specific dial text looks retarded, get a sterile from Jackson Tse or Getat (expect to wait a long time though).
If you like the bracelet that's your thing but it's a massive hunk of steel you'd have on your wrist.
Since they apparently don't hack I'd get one without seconds all together.
The radiomir cases wear a lot smaller, worth noting.
>pig disgusting panerai design
Panerai is nor for everybody
You mean quality or looks? I like the looks since I have so many boring oysters, but I'll be buying a strap if I get it.
I admit it looks retarded, but I like some form of warranty and not gambling. Also my autism triggers from sterile dials, thats the worst you can do to a watch, even STEEL BAGELSPORT is better imo...
Consider a sarb035. You can get them for a good price from that website atm. All of the seikos they have for sale there are half decent, get whatever you like
Watches are technology. Watches use to have rivalries similar to that of Microsoft and Apple today. Consider filtering watch threads if you don't like them
Sup watchfags, my SOKI is ticking too fast(like 3 minutes per day fast), is it worth getting it adjusted? I don't own my own caseback opener, should I just quit being a betamax and get me set of tools to work with watches instead?(I own other watches, perhaps getting more in future)
Just buy an case opener for 3$ and adjust it with a screwdriver, thats how easy it is. Also if it has rolex caseback you can open it by knife if rest it against the lugs and stick it in the engraved part of the casback.
And who the fuck stol emy pick from instagram?
They're like $74 though and not really worth it unless you REALLY want a nautilus homage and not a rep.
Seemingly use the same movement as the early bagels for that price.
The Osama special has been the thinkpad of watches for years.
every time someone brings this up someone freaks out and starts screaming about how these threads are about watch movements and other mechanical, tech things.
nobody's willing to cop to the fact that this is just how people who should be visiting /fa/ once in a while can avoid doing something uncomfortable like meeting new people on the internet.
no, but these threads only seem to bring up movements and such after being called out for circlejerking over the sapphire crystal faces, watch design, wrist strap type, etc...
so odds are that most of the people that participate in these threads would have a better time on /fa/ if they could just get over the silo'ing trend that has plagued 4chan in general and turned each board into a bunch of instances of reddit with themes.
Just how much of a newfriend are you?
If you'd been here for more than 5 minutes, you'd know the SARB033/035 is probably the most shilled watch on /wt/
I want to get an open heart orient at some point
Just found this, obviously fake but I'm not even sure what design it fakes.
Hey, I didn't say *I* liked it, I said it was the most shilled watch on /wt/.
>Being new enough to this Singaporean shadow puppet sounding-board that you think "new friend" originated elsewhere.
just found this on hackaday
he even printed the spring
and because you're all autists i shotted the article and here's the video in the link.
You can buy really high quality seikos or rotary watches for £100 with a similar look that will last decades.
That brathwait is just a ripoff of a different well known brand but they're not even charging less for it.
I bought a Pebble Steel, and found that it was STILL too bulky for me to really enjoy.
I was hoping you guys could direct me towards a watch that's light, functional, and a little stylish, but not casio terrorist style. Bluetooth is a maybe.
Not sure what watch to get.
Currently on the fence between the following:
Steinhart Ocean One Vintage
Steinhart Ocean One Vintage DLC
Really can't decide between them. The DLC one has this matte coating which might seem tacky, but it's pretty much scratch proof and mite b cool with a different strap.
Can't wait for pic related, it was between this and a rolex explorer 2 but I just felt the komandirskie had a certain charm about it.
I just bought a terrorist watch on Amazon for 8 bucks and some accompanying NATO straps.
Pic isn't mine, but similar.
Black nato is nice for that watch, I wore it like that fore a while. Went to a green nato for a militaristic Aliens look, even though the Colonial Marines wore Seiko Pulsemeters.
I bought this watch specifically for backpacking and camping. I'm excited to get down and dirty in the field while still remembering to beat my wife every 8 hours. Women need to know their place.
That's a common sentiment I hear when posters say that watches should be on /fa/. It's also not true, movements are discussed even when not "called out". You can look through the archives if you don't believe me.
The watch threads on /fa/ have a much different character than the ones on /g/ which are oriented more to the technology and user interface of the watch.
I have an older Grand Seiko that hasn't been serviced in years probably 1969-1970s, it still works and keeps time but I don't feel like shelling out 626.00 USD to get it fully serviced,polished, , replaced movement how much can I get for it selling it in used 'as-is' condition?
The problem is /fa/ has next to no appreciation for the engineering side, and will just as likely tell you to buy some chink movement watch as a decent one because of how it looks. Watches are purely an accessory to go with your outfit so they care very little about what's inside it. The only time I've seen them really talk about movements in /wt/ on /fa/ is when someone has no clue what the difference is in movements.
It's a Hi-Beat 36000 GS early 1970s
No clue haven't taken it to a shop yet but I wouldn't trust anyone with a GS that isn't Seiko I saw this post http://forums.watchuseek.com/f30/sold-grand-seiko-hi-beat-6146-8000-day-date-1899362.html
and saw the price and almost shit myself, last service I did was in 2004 but it cost me 150 USD, pretty sure it's due for another of that caliber by now
pic related mine has the crystal scratched and minor nicks on the case
I wouldn't polish the case, and unless the crystal is compromised leave it alone. There's nothing wrong with a bit of patina. As for servicing, it could just need a few parts replaced and a cleaning and oiling.
What watch is this? Pic/vid related https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O9x169LJq_Y
It probably just does need a cleaning and oiling, but reading about Seiko not keeping parts after 10 years is a load of malarkey kinda thinking that I have a dead weight here I've never had any parts replaced so thinking one could shit itself any moment isn't comfy for me anymore
In that case, get it cleaned and oiled now, before any parts go. I'm sure someone could fabricate replacements if necessary, or find some somewhere, but cleaning and oiling will delay that need.
why would you say they r shit?
you wont find sapphire glas in seiko or rotary watches for ~180 bucks
Im rather intruiged, show some a bit similar watches for a smiliar price you would say are superior in quality
Looks like this annual calendar to me, but not quite.
I'm not sure why this rotary meme keeps coming up, they don't make the watches they sell.
And you can get an Orient sapphire for the same price, if you consider that to be pretty close to Seiko
So the Timegrapher 1000 I ordered arrived today. MFW my unserviced Seiko 5206 was between -4 and +6 in all six positions, with a beat error between 0.0ms and 0.3ms across all six positions.
Is it bad that I like the caseback on this watch more than the front?
For the week i've had it, not really.
Neither does any of my 4 Seiko's or Orient.
If only you knew anon...
yah vostoks have pretty neat casebacks
seriously this is far better than those orients or seikos that have a display caseback for their ugly utilitarian movements (personal preference, of course, I tend to not like display casebacks on cheap automatics, manuals can be ok as they often look better due to no rotor)
What the fuck are you doing Ivan? The worst part is that the watch actually sold.
GWR is my only smartwatch and I don't shill it unless someone specifically asks about what smartwatch to get.
I'd adjust it in Watchmaker to stretch out the second hand but it has like 5 layers not including the line and I'm too lazy to resize everything properly. Its the same with all the faces that guy releases for some reason. I really want to get back into making more watch faces myself but I don't know what watches to recreate.
Jesus Christ what the fuck
That's the official 4chan watch face. All the colors (except the second hand) are all based on the same colors used in the tomorrow theme (at least i think so, i typically just use stock colors) for 4chan. The arrow is >>52371639 while the 11 changes to post link blue when it is 11 AM or PM so you can adequately check em.
Only thing you can't really see is the /k/ murder cube background from when we were originally trying to get a custom set of Vostoks or something similar for other anons to buy but last I recall they never replied to the people who emailed about it.
