A reply to >>52370087 from previous thread about flat Komandirskie casebacks;
You could, in theory, remove the winding rotor and the pin holding it and get enough space to put the flat Dirskie caseback. Now, the reason why Amfibia has such a 'deep' caseback is the waterproofing method used; the deeper you dive, the more the front side (plexi)-back side (caseback) sandwich presses against the movement, making it more and more waterproof. Opposed to that, the Komandirskie never was really waterproof.

What the fuck did you just fucking type about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class at MIT, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids with Anonymous, and I have over 300 confirmed DDoSes. I am trained in online trolling and I’m the top hacker in the entire world. You are nothing to me but just another virus host. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on the Internet, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with typing that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we chat over IRC I am tracing your IP with my damn bare hands so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your computer. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can hack into your files in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in hacking, but I have access to the entire arsenal of every piece of malware ever created and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the world wide web, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking fingers. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit code all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

Reduced is basically a 38mm speedmaster. Different movement though, and the subdial placement isn't as pretty as the 42mm speedy. It's an automatic, and if I'm not mistaken it only comes with a sapphire crystal. It's cheaper because demand for it is lower, basically.

Canadabux man, shit has been dropping recently. That 7000 figure is from a local grand seiko AD. Although, it would actually be cheaper since 7000CAD is around 4900USD.

I always hated that on the larger one, the reduced is way more readable in that sense that they are well separated.

Literally a really undervalued speedmaster if you get the reduced with hessalite (less than 1000$ in some cases), and its AUTOMATIC which means you dont have to wind like a pleb everyday... And let me inform you, that shit does get tedious. Just like shaving is a chore so is winding.

Ok I seemed to have found out after putting on some reading glasses, most stems I've worked with required to be pulled out before finding the lever, on this watch they need to be pushed inside revealing a tiny dot where circled on pic, and the 2nd moonphase stem just requires a tiny push after the first one since the mechanism of the first holds it down

I sort of want to buy this Fossil to be honest. But I'm not sure; I know I'm going to buy some non-digital quartz watch, though.

I love my mechanicals but sometimes it just feels euphoric to wear a worry free quartz, my current g-shocks and ironic gold casios aren't very neutral though so some normal looking one will it be.

Are those bluish purple hues caused by that dial acting as a diffraction grating? If so neat.

>>52374277
Hype is justified imo since for a mechanical watch it is actually pretty cheap compared to swiss with a dial that puts most swiss watches in the $500 range to shame. The only thing swiss watches have over it is 28000bps but to me that isn't really important.

Yeah, I recall a post when you weren't using a pseudonym. Where would be the best place to sell some of my watches? I've got a orient Ray with a shitty bezel and a curry seiko with the 12 o'clock Indice currently rattling around the dial
>>
>>52377768
The curry Seiko isn't worth more then some shit.

The Orient though, put it up on eBay or something and expect to get about 100$.

It should definitely be a 2609, it would just be nice if they had taken a photo of it. Looking at photos of other 2609s online based on the shit finishing it looks like it would be just barely a cut above a poo in loo HMT movement, but the feature list is actually kind of impressive. It has direct drive seconds, incabloc-type shock protection, an overcoiled hairpsring, and a screw balance which all seem like surprisingly high-end features and definitely better than the Vostok 2416 in the amphibias. I bet you could regulate it to be really accurate if you actually knew how to adjust all the little weights and stuff.

>>52377795
I know there value would probably be able to get $10 australian for the seiko and maybe $100 a australian for the orient

Sadly a college budget doesn't have room for that sort of thing.

I have needed a wrist watch in two sections of my life; before i got my first mobile phone and in army.

Do people actually need to check the time so often that checking it on phone or other clocks is not enough or tedious? Or is it mostly for showing off? Not mocking anyone here as showing off is 99% of todays extroverted culture and a nice watch is a classy way to do it.
>>
>>52380121
To be honest with you a phone is the best way to tell time. Unless you are in a situation where you can't use a phone I.e. The army or in a meeting a phone is pretty good, it has a stop watch, calendar, world time

Watches are more then telling the time, they are about the craftmenship and history of the movements inside them, the innovative designs amd how they have progressed and for a lot of people they are jewellery. A watch is the only piece of jewellery a man can wesr besides a wedding ring

I like to wear watches that I find aesthetically pleasing or otherwise interesting.
But I would rather wear the shittiest digital than no watch at all. Checking time on your wrist is just infinitely more convenient than taking your phone out (which is why wrist watches were invented in the first place).
Most of the time, I don't *need* it. It's just comfort.
I also sometimes do first response and have to check a pulse, in which case I actually need a watch.

How much do I have to pay for something like this with a swiping movement at minimum? I really love everything about this watch but the second hand movement kills it completely for me.

>I think you meant sweeping right?

yes lol
>>
>>52381749
Get an Orient Bambino instead.

>>52381753
So you want a chronograph with a sweeping seconds hand.
>>
>>52381706
For what that watch costs you'd be able to afford a Seiko 6139/6138 which are automatic chronographs from the 1970s, but buying a new mechanical chronograph will cost a lot more unless you want to risk buying something Chinese.
Why are you so bothered by the ticking seconds anyway? It's barely noticeable since it's on a sub dial, or does the chrono hand tick? Though be very cautious when buying a PRC200, there's a lot of fakes about. You might want to look at the Seiko SSB line, mecaquartz is preferable when you've got a relatively tight budget.
>>
>>52380752
Its quarz right?
>>
>>52381794
>>52381772
Well besides the 6138/6139, other options can be obviously the SSB mechaquartz, Poljot Shturmaskie (or 3133 based chrono), Citizen 8110, or a reduced jap speedmaster if you're small wristed.
>>
>>52381772
what makes the bambino better in your opinion?
>>
>>52381885
Better overall design.

The two with the textured dials have really day windows, which kinda ruined the whole dress-watch aesthetic. As far as the 3rd one goes, the gold colored plating will scratch and flake off really fast and the hands look meh.

Id rather either get a ER24005W Bambino or the newer ER2400MW.
>>
>>52381794

The Chrono hand ticks. This kills the watch.
>>
>>52382002

so you would not get the gold coloured orient ones too or is it just a problem with the seikos?
>>
>>52382037
I wouldn't get them on the account i dislike gold colored watches (That aren't actual gold).

But sure, go for them. Nothing wrong with them really.
>>
>>52382002
>>52382037
also what is /g/s verdict on the orient disk watches?
they arent that dressy as the bambino ones but you could pull them off with a suit
>>
>>52382030
Utter shit then, especially for the cost. As I mentioned look into the Seiko SSB line, or any micro brand that uses the Seiko VK64 movement, Autodromo and Helgray both make very distinctive watches that use this movement.

Does anyone think Martian watches are good? It's basically an analog watch with a small led screen and some bluetooth capabilities.

A year ago a colleague who worked for the company tried to sell me one of these for around $175. It looked okay in the picture, but when I saw it in person the material looked shitty so I declined. I figure if I was going to spend that kind of money on an analog watch I would rather save more money on one with better material.

Last December I saw it being sold for only around $30 and am wondering what happened? Can anyone vouch for this watch?

The Citizen chronos are the fucking bomb, they're the ones to get. All the classic Seiko chronographs had serious long-term durability issue because of the weird spring-clutch design, which essentially removed a component from the movement and gradually fucked shit up over time if the chronograph wasn't engaged and running. Which means you pretty much need the chrono running all the time. The 8110 never really had that issue.

Probably not. If you're paranoid and it hasn't been serviced in many years, you could do that. Probably won't make it quieter though.
>>
>>52385984
A movement ticks at, basically, whatever volume it's going to tick at. A watch that is made to be waterproof but has had that degraded may also have some form of sound proofing degraded, but that's not a big issue.

The main concern is most watches are underserviced. A movement, if not service, will eventually grind itself away.
>>
>>52377768
like the other poster said ebay is your best bet, also unless your Indian Seiko is in good 'running' condition it could easily fetch 10-20 depending on the condition though and model, there have been occasions where they get divers so unless it's just the usual Seiko 5 it'll be 10-20 USD the Orient Ray depending on the condition and your urgency to let it go can go between 70-100

Tbh it's great. It feels pretty darm premium and keeps time perfectly. I think it's a Seagul movement inside and the chrono works and everything.

Poor ratio between bracelet and case size, faux diamonds look tacky. Mother of pearl can be nice on smaller watches but it almost looks like that one is rather large - which would futher make the bracelet look like a string holding the case. The hands are not very well suited for this specific watch.

If it's around 28-32mm, available without the faux diamonds and very cheap I'd consider it for my gf.

Hey /wt/ would you consider the 1st gen. Amphibia good looking? How would you feel if this is what they'd base the 2017 anniversary Amphibia on?

>>52388018

I don't have it on me right now, but I'll see if I can take a picture tomorrow.

either way I like it, my mom got it for me as a present.

recommend some ladies watches if you know any. I love men's watches they are so elegant, but they look horrible on small wrists.

Unless you have extremely cute wrists, Casio LTP-1274D-1A is an option. Available both at Walmart as well as Ebay / Amazon / Creationwatches. Get a springbar tool and a decent leather strap and you're still under $40.

If you have more money, the Junghans Max Bill ladies exists. As well as the cutest versions of the JLC Reverso.

Everyone likes it besides the guy who bought a Damasko. The several people who post here who own one obviously like it.
Sinn 656 was one of the watches that made me interested in them, though I'm not likely to buy one soon.
Personally I find almost all their chronographs poor looking. If I was looking to buy mid-range watches, 556 and U200 would be very high on the list.

I really like their watches, especially the chronograph that i posted. Even though am not the biggest fan of chronographs, i do enjoy the look so Sinn's chronograph especially when you can see the movement through the clear back. I would like Breitling, but i feel that their dials are too chaotic for my liking (too much shit, i understand they're for pilots but i feel that it makes the watch look worse).

Listen Moe, Larry and Curly, maybe if The Three Neckbeards would leave the basement once in a while you'd get more familiar with the concept of outside, and wearing rugged watches for actual work. It's fucking too cold outside for actual work, hiking or other physical activities so no need to wear a G-Shock.

my experiences w/ casio neg displays (the ones with dark background):

on digi only models they're quite good. they're basically more easily readable than normal when you're in very bright light conditions, but slightly harder to read in dark situations (for which you have the backlight)

on ana-digi models though, I've seen them as pig disgusting. they're so far back behind the crystal and so on that they're sometimes nearly unreadable.
there might be models where it does work out, though.

so that watch should be fine

Well that's certainly not a good quartz movement or anything, it's just some no-name shit for the also-ran version of the watch for people who were too cheap to get the real mechanical version. That's all quartz is for Swatch these days.

So many of these watches are just cluttered messes. If you have a K-Mart or SEARS nearby, check the website. They have Casio Digital Basics for $9 as part of an inventory purge because they're horrible at business.

Also have some Timex Ironmans on sale. The big prominently featured time and date make them more usable than the faux tech shit Casio pulls. I don't understand what the hell half the things on Casio faces are supposed to even represent.

I have a couple Orient open hearts. They're pretty good. I'd recommend the ones released back in feb last year. WV0411DB, WV0401DB, WV0391DB. The bracelet is pretty comfortable and solid for a watch of that price. That being said, it isn't the normal lug design, so you're not going to be able to throw it on just any strap if that's your thing.
