Wats wrong wit a iced out rollie nigguh? If a nigga on the street and makes bank, if a nigga works his way out of da community he needs a piece of bling on his wrist, know what I'm saying?
Does anyone know what is up with seiyajapan? I checked their website yesterday and it says they will be back on the 16th jan, now it's almost 18th jan in japan and the website still says same
I have pic related (quartz) and would like an automatic. Is the SARB033 the closest looking automatic I will find? I would really like a weekday indicator (preferably in white) and it should also be around 38mm.
Either the SARB033 or the SARY057 (pic) are the closest I've found, though the SARY057 doesn't have a lume and is too big (and the date is in black but I can get over that).
6139-7070, an early version. Later versions have yellow chrono seconds and minutes hands.
Is the only mechanical chronographs worth getting for fairly cheap going to have seagull movements?
The alpha Daytona homages and seagull 1963s all look okay but I just want to know if there are any other options
Only one left in stock. Buy now before it's gone!
Also, pic related - buy or not?
So I'm thinking of buying a speedy pro. I love the look of the watch and its heritage but I have 2 concerns.
>1 is the WR.
I'm the kind of guy that loves wearing my watch 24/7 and I hate the idea of a watch that I have to take off if I want to shower or swim. Seems like a stupid minor complaint but it's just how I am.
>2 not sure how winding mechanicals are
Only ever owned quartz or autos. Do they get anoying to have to wind every day or so?
As far as the handwinding part goes, it's just like a nice morning ritual.
Wake up, windup the watch and go on about your day, then before going to sleep wind it up a little more.
More like the entire thing is fake.
I saw the "62 reviews" and knew dis gon be good. I was not disappointed on the reviews page.
But seriously it's shit for 100k you could have A Lange and Sohne and thus do an even bigger pretentious dick wave.
I haven't seen that particular watch before but it's quite nice. Basically a Bambino though, which is about the same price and I'd rather have the Orient than that.
>I want to buy a Speedy Pro
Whilst many here will encourage you, I simply can't. This watch is the biggest piece of overhyped, overpriced, overmarketed watch "heritage" targeted at the WIS audience ever made. End of the day, you're paying, used, minimum 2.5k for a workhorse watch with a basic fucking 17 jewel manual chrono. If you buy new, it's easily 5k or something in that range. That's robbery in my opinion. And for what? To have "heritage" and be like every other WISer? I hate to bring it up, but it is also basically a reddit/WUS watch: the plebs and richfags at r/watches and WUS can't circlejerk to this watch (or to the shit-tier company that is Omega, either) nearly enough.
As for mechanical movements it really depends on what you value. I don't find them too annoying, in fact it's part of my morning ritual to wind my watches as I wake up.
For the WR: again, for the price and intended use, it's pretty junk. You should be able to confidently swim with it but with the "50m" label I wouldn't want to take it in the pool, especially if buying vintage.
However don't let me discourage you. If you like it, purchase what you want. I'd just take my 2.5k elsewhere, for those kinds of prices I could have an actual justfuckmyshitup.jpg-proof tool chronograph (probably with an automatic movement) with ease. And still have $700 left over to buy a new-made Russian Strela, the first Chrono in space period
My preferred companies to buy from for those would be Sinn, Damasko, Muehle Glashutte (all German) or Seiko itself, probably their higher-end line with the NE88,
You almost had me going for a second.
Take your watch off while you bathe you fucking heathen.
I was in the same boat as you a year ago, then I ultimately went for a Sinn 144 automatic which has 20bar water resistance. More peace of mind too.
I just realized, I yave no range watch but a slew of office watches.
Haven't been to the range in a year finally going tomorrow and realized I dont want to fuck up a watch.
Does a terrorist have enough shock resistance to ratatatat 1000~ rounds or should I go for a cheap gshock?
haven't bought it yet, and apologies for not knowing model numbers from looking at the watch alone, ad is kinda bad so that alone is off-putting
condition doesn't look bad though
Those look great, and I like the bagel-shaped pushers. I only had one "modern" 3133, an Aviator from the early 2000s and I was pleasantly surprised with its accuracy and variance relative to my early to mid 80s 3133 and derivatives.
My love of old eastern bloc surplus and revolvers has killed my skx013 more times than I care to admit.
I don't THINK I've ever killed a terrorist casio, and I've put mine through a beating.
I'm 90% positive that watch uses a 2609 movement, which is pretty bullet proof.
No signs of water damage and the dial has that nice CCCP stamp along with correct text.
Though imo that dial is god awful, there are much nicer looking Raketas.
>This watch is the biggest piece of overhyped, overpriced, overmarketed watch "heritage" targeted at the WIS audience ever made.
Show me another mechanical chronograph with a clean, perfectly proportioned, high contrast dial, recessed subdials and not a Valjoux 7750 movement for under 2.5k
It's just a perfect design. And 2.5k isn't that much when it comes to watches. IMO the Speedmaster Professional is well worth it.
thanks, i'm just looking for something new and that i'm more okay with it being used everyday than what i'm wearing right now
also looking at a 1980s seiko 5 that looks quite nice.
Is Bulova's Precision series any good? I'm looking for a chronograph that isn't dogshit and doesn't cost four digits. I'm too sceptical about Seagull's 1963 in the long term. I think that leaves mechanicals out of my reach then.
I don't know where I got the 100m figure, looking at some pictures they seem to be 3atm resistant, worse than the speedy
For shame, maybe I'll hold off on a chrono or get a quartz, I don't know what I expected with non screwing pushers anyway
>The Seagull 1963 Militar
>b-but it's Chinese
Still a better deal, and it's well-proportioned. Also only about 400 USD, with an original design and good manual movement. And many dial options available.
More importantly, it's not over-marketed garbage. Many of the components on the Omega are made in China anyways and the movement is very basic for the price, yes despite its ubiquity the Valjoux is a better deal and movement.
Sorry, but the Speedy Pro is all marketing without much to back it up except for muh heritage and muh design, which Omega have milked into oblivion to sell to WIS.
Did you look at my post, then?
I wouldn't buy reissued Strelas. They may have Russian movements but I'm certain it's Chinese casing+marketing hype, that old strategy.
Buy what you want but for $2500 you'll get a much better deal with Sinn or Damasko than the Omega Speedy (and you won't be another redditor wearing a redditcore watch)
But it doesn't have recessed subdials. Plus the movement isn't reliable I heard.
Also who cares if it's is overmarketed. You are buying it used anyways.
We are talking about mechanical watches here. If you really care about getting the most for your money then you would just get yourself a cheap quartz.
Yeah the sinn looks nice, though I'd have plenty of options at that price range, a chronograph wouldn't be my first choice to be honest.
Chronos are neat but ultimately don't speak to me like divers or other designs.
>find me a watch that is the Omega Speedmaster and looks exactly like it and has its design features but isn't an Omega Speedmaster
I agree with you we're talking mechanicals, and as I said: if you like the Speedmaster, go for it. But it's still overhyped and way overpriced, even used, especially for the price. And yes, a Valjoux based mechanical chrono with interesting tech is still better than this watch.
I'll agree with you the ST19 chrono movement isn't the best, but that's a problem often of the factory: being chinkshit there's no QC of which to speak. If it was made to a decent standard most problems would evaporate.
Anyways to each his own but if I have to hear another "heritage" story about how "great" the Speedmaster is I'm gonna lose it
Well there is the Heuer Carrera.
The re-edition of it is a bit cheaper than the Speedmaster Professional I think. Watches with a design like these were quite common back then but finding them in good condition now isn't easy.
Well, i have a few nice ones that i'm watching that it'll be a shame to let them go.
Have a look.
Will post the next one in a follow up post.
Not really, it's very dead.
Wonder if Dale will reply to me.
This is my first time visiting /wt/, but my old seiko watch has completely stopped. It started stopping at random times around a month ago, but today it completely stopped.
It's a mechanical watch, so it isn't a battery problem.
Make the hours green, enlarge the clovers and emboss them a bit, so they're noticeable just in the right conditions.
Green shining clock hands in the night would be the final touch (eventually making a green ">" sign.)
Come on, put a little thought in it and make one yourself!
But anon I made these from scratch myself.
Embossing would probably add a lot of cost to the dial. The other dial maker had the >maymay but I thought it'd be a bit too meme-intensive. Think blue won the strawpolls we had, or I just prefer it :^)
Fair points though.
Junghans Max Bill Automatic
>convex hard Plexiglass with SICRALAN coating
Make it stop.
>whatever the ref of the picture is (1942/3)
>Panerai 249 (2012)
How does this make you feel?
Feels weird, I think. I'm used to whatever mineral crystal glass my current watch has.
I wonder how easily it scratches, that's all.
And for some reason I have the thought that it would feel "softer" to touch - which would probably make it harder to scratch.
If I had the money for the Junghans I posted above, I'd probably see if I could find it in a store.
I think it looks nice.
>minimal amount of logo
>not some China shit
kek ignore that one, I found a cheaper one with out even trying
Acrylic is easy to mold into a thick dome shape like the crystal on that watch. Sapphire crystals have to be cut and polished from a block instead so carving out a dome rather than a thin flat crystal wastes a lot of material and is expensive.
I think plastic crystals look slightly different in person than glass or sapphire would but I'm not sure how to describe it, I guess it looks more old fashioned. It also feels warmer to the touch and doesn't really get fingerprint smudges on it. It's very soft and will inevitably get scratched, but polishing it is very easy and you can just polish it a bit every once in a while to keep it looking new.
Carreras suffer from the same problem. The reissue isn't so bad, one of the only good things TAG has done in years, but it doesn't stop that the vintages are fucking $8k for a domed plexi used watch that wasn't even that great to begin with.
Of course this is because watch luxury lifestyle blogs like Hodinkee are obviously in bed with many dealers and so use hype to up the price of vintage watches.
I actually quite love many vintage watches, but the price on them is ridiculous when one considers the maintenance costs for models years out of production. And when everything has to be replaced with aftermarket parts, how much is it "muh heritage vintage watch" anymore?
Hey there, sorry to say buddy but you'd probably do best to get a new one. Unless the sentimental value is worth it to you to get repaired, a new one for lower-end models is usually a better deal. If it's a unique or rare model then disregard.
The reason is it probably needs a service, which is expensive in our lands.
Price on the old one again is muh vintage heritage puting the price up. It is cool, though, to have a watch from when the entire world was busy killing each other and it's still ticking.
The 15k new reference is just Panerai being shekelmeisters, which we all knew they were especially after the Brooklyn Bridge scandal.
Personally I love acrylic crystals, I like the look and the durablity. Even if they scratch it can be easily fixed. If anything I'd want more, especially military-style, watches to come with plexiglass rather than sapphire. Also makes replacement easier, sapphire is pricey.
Well, I guess there are pros and cons to both types.
I'd have to see it for myself in a store as I mentioned.
Ordering €700 worth of watch without even looking at it in natural light through my own eyes just seems absurd.
Hello /wt/! I'm looking for a watch around 100£ on amazon. Need a fairly sturdy watch for daily use. Thinking about a diver like orient mako or something, what do you guys recommend? I'm vague because I don't really know much about watches. Been browsing /wt/ for awhile now.
Stop wasting your money impressing people who don't even care about watches and see how good replicas are nowadays fuckers https://www.replica-watch.info/
Why would I try impressing other people with my watch, I didn't make it or anything it's just a fucking mass produced toy I bought, buying it isn't some tremendous accomplishment. If anything maybe they would be impressed by the watch manufacturer. Buying shit to try to impress others is pretty pathetic anon, I guess the only thing more pathetic is buying fake shit to try to impress others.
You don't have to like watches but if you don't like them then why are you buying them, anon? I can even respect if you really just like fake watches for some reason and choose to buy them to make yourself happy, but buying anything fake or real or otherwise because you think it'll affect what others think is top fucking good goy.
No, those are literally all the decent watches that exist.
More seriously, consider if you want a mechanical watch or not. They have some drawbacks, namely the relative inaccuracy and the need to keep them wound (or worn in the case of automatics).
>buying fake shit to try to impress others.
You only buy fakes to impress yourself. The smugness of looking at your wrist and going YA'LL RIPOFF COMPANIES SURE GOT TOLD, all while still having a pocket full of money for other stuff.
Fuck I'd buy it.
I've never bought any of the collabs that actually manage to materialize from efforts on this cesspool of a website, but I'd buy the fuck out of a watch.
Get /fa/ in on it and you'll have a pool of extra thirsty fuccbois to add to the pre-order ranks.
Probably need Hiroshima-sama's approval or someshit though.
You can identify it, the reference number will probably be on the inside of the caseback. If you're too much of a vagina to open it up yourself then take it to a watchmaker, it'll take like 10 seconds.
I love handwinding, it is fun and satisfying.
Also, I can not imagine wearing a watch in the shower. To me it feels wrong, like showering with socks. I also use leather bands most of the time, so that is part of the reason.
>but it doesn't stop that the vintages are fucking $8k for a domed plexi used watch that wasn't even that great to begin with.
But the problem is that I don't see many new watches that appeal to me.
I don't want a watch over 40mm. I don't want a watch with a shiny metallic dial. I don't want a watch with an overloaded dial. I don't want a chrono with the Valjoux 7750 subdial alignment. I don't want a watch with a flat face. I don't want a dressy watch.
Thread seems to be alive, so might as well go and ask.
I currently have a 420 case'd Amphibia with classic scuba dude dial. Now i kind want to change it and i'm at somewhat of a stalemate.
I'm wondering if i should get a new Amphibia with a blue scuba dude (710059), or should i just get either a 090 or 710 case and implant the movement into it.
A replacement case off Ebay is between half and two-thirds of a whole Amphibia in price, so only go for it if you definitely don't want another Amphibia.
Swapping the case should be easy, you just remove the caseback, take out the winding crown, drop out the movement and put it in the other case.
Would this be a good watch, i never owned one.
Posted this in the thread on effay. Any recommendations for a band on this? I'm thinking brown like the Timex Easy Reader with the blue face but I'm not sure yet.
I can't wear linked bands. I got it as a present and don't want to just leave it sitting in my desk drawer forever.
>mfw waiting for my new strap in the mail
I'm well versed in the process of how to do it. And i do have do have pic related.
Though Amphibia i want will cost 70~75$.
So basically it's either i get a new Amphibia, or replace the case and also get a new aftermarket bezel.
Decent choice i guess.
Reliable and a very nice size. Strap will probably be shit though.
Brown leather strap.
fug now that you're reminding me i oughtta get back to working on that.
Anybody wants the ver 0.12 of the guide?
>mfw not waiting for my gs spring drive because I'm a poorfag
What's a good, minimalistic, simple watch with a decent movement for 200 usd or less?
Does such a thing exist?
Orient Symphony (White dial dial, with clean hands).
Orient Bambino is also well loved.
A lighter shade of brown would work fine, but as long as it isn't too dark it'll work fine.
Bonus, get a brown lizard skin strap like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cinturini-Lucertola-slim-in-vera-pelle-16-18-20mm-Lizard-strap-ENTRATE-/261692975763?hash=item3cee1dea93:g:Cy4AAOSwAL9Uhbor
Just posting a watch in the watch thread.
>implying it isn't
>not knowing the leather is of extremely high quality
Stay mad poorfag.
shouldn't you clean the rust?
in communist russia, time tells you
not bad, kind of old-man like
also what does /g/ think of this australian meme watch I got for christmas?
stop throwing the word "fake" around so much, please
there are practically no fakes of the likes of vostok
frankenwatches and other dubious modifications, however, do exist
it wouldn't be a problem otherwise but some dumbasses take the "fake" literally and go all OHH ALL THE AMPHIBIAS ARE FAKES MADE IN CHINA
Right? I went out to the Apple Store the other day to check out new bands and knew that the brown leather loop was the one the second I put it on the watch. Looks really fucking clean.
There are counterfeit Komandirskies. They're not extremely common but they do exist.
Fake is also synonymous with franken, but that watch is not just franken when literally the dial (admittedly), hands, and possibly the crown and bezel are all aftermarket and/or inappropriate for the model. Anyone who pays that much for it is an idiot, and does create legitimate concern for potential buyers.
>vintage throwback designs made largely in Asia with only final finishing in Switzerland and yet sold for thousands of dollars
Modern Swatch Omega is pretty much just Chinese homages to what Omega used to be, why not just buy vintage instead?
Oh and I forgot, ETA movements modified to have some fancy escapement that does nothing and a few extra Geneva stripes to make it MUH INHOUSE.
It's one of my favorite designs but I am not sure if can deal with the lack of the seconds hand. It makes the design cleaner but I like being able to tell if the watch runs.
This used to be common knowledge here, I guess it wasn't discussed for a while now, so the new kids don't know yet.
Who's wearing their watch in the shower tho. Sure you CAN, kind of like you CAN bring your galaxy s5 in the shower with you. For what purpose
>diving in the ocean
>5 min the shower
get real. Water is bad for watches period. If it has been designed to handle the water, a shower isnt going to bother it. Obviously, you dont shower with a Patek minute repeater. But if you have a dive watch, 007, or Orient Mako/Ray, Sub etc..there is nothing wrong with it.
I wouldn't do it with a watch that's hundreds of dollars, but I would with a $15 watch.
This exact watch lasted me for 3 years. I was very rough on it. It went in the pool and the shower frequently. The only reason why I need a new watch is because the strap snapped.
>stop wasting money to impress people
>buy a fucking replica to impress people because they will think that you have a rolex or some other shit
Fakes are the lowest of the low, I'd rather use my fucking phone than a fake
Well for example the 1967 explodes if it goes NEAR a shower. Not into one, near one.
No it isn't
Anyway, the whole water and water pressure thing isn't that big of a deal. It's the very sudden temperature change to a ridiculous level and it's the chemicals that will come in to contact with your watch have potential fuck up the gasket. If the gasket gets fucked up the water resistance drops, which could be a problem because you need every piece of water resistance you can get because youre showering with it
>Dynamic pressure is a myth.
Somebody didn't pay attention in fluid mechanics class.
But I agree with your sentiment, I don't get why you people buy water resistant watches and then baby them and think a little water is going to wreck them instantly. But I also don't understand why you want to shower with a watch on, I'm normally naked in the shower but maybe that's just me. In fact the first thing I do when I get home is take off my watch and I don't put one on again until I'm going out the door.
Is there a digital watch lie that cheap casio that's a little more plain looking? Like without a bunch of writing all over it? A countdown timer and stopwatch would be nice. About the same size too.
>It's not literally a myth
>But it's also not very important
Shut the fuck up then if you're agreeing with me.
hahah you fat cunt. check my smart watch out which blows your faggot piece out of the water. Also got a SARB065 incoming, so suck a dick son.

What's a nice small watch for people who can do pic related?
Anyone here with an Alpinist and a 007 or Seiko 5 willing to post some side-by-side pics? I really want an Alpinist, but I worry it may be too small for me.
Isn't the owl penis like 40mm? That's not too small for anyone, even on the most tree trunk slavwrists it'll look ok. I don't have one but I do have an 007 and some 38mm and 40mm watches to compare it again, hope this helps.
It is similar to the Orient Bambino, true. I like the subdial though, and the Chinese one is slightly smaller and thinner. Worth a shot I figured, so I ordered it. Will post pictures when it comes in a few days.
I must have 5 ~$150 watches at this point. I really should just stop buying them and buy one good one, but it's nice to have a rotation too.
looks more like a copy of this
I think they're all pretty different, different enough for me anyway. The only ones that are really similar are the two white penisquartzes but I can't decide which one to get rid of because the KQ is in better condition and looks nicer but the GQ is a twin quartz and it lets me claim that I own a GS.
Alright, then. Thanks. It was just that most of the descriptions I've seen of the Alpinist say 38mm. And going by my Seiko 5, I just don't like that size. I was hoping to see if the Alpinist wears bigger.
sorry, not too great of a pic
It's a rodina, so although I don't know which specific watch it's copying it's almost definitely gonna be a near exact aethetic clone of some expensive watch
That is still analog.
Now, all jokes aside, please don't post that ugly pile of dogshit here.
I like how a lange felt the need to have that trashy looking screw in the middle. The small ones are ok tho.
>a lange design reminds me of this
>1. displaying a readout in numerical digits rather than by a pointer or hands on a dial: a digital speedometer; a digital watch.

PS a 7-segment LCD display like what you're thinking of does not have pixels either.
The watch case is I think 38mm, and my wrist in >>52480852 and pic related is 6.5". Hope that helps.
Well, if you put on a trip code and timstamp of it Im very interested in purchasing either one. Thats quite a cheap price, I'm assuming you aren't being serious or it isn't the original poster
This one is 34mm and looks better than most on this thread.
No that's not me god damn. I don't really want to sell either of them right now.
Well, smartass, presumably when someone is talking about gold in the context of jewelry they are talking about commonly used gold-containing alloys which exist in a wide range of colors rather than elemental gold. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colored_gold
If you were to sell one how much do you think you would want for one? I would be very interested depending on price, if the time comes you could cut out the eBay commission and Any potential fuckery by the buyer
Still have this guy on standby till he gets an LM special.
newfag, those go for 100$ usually.
Sometimes a bit less for the type II.
Why is nobody talking about the new IWC Marks at SIHH 2016?
Personally I think they did a decent job by not releasing a fuck-up like the Mark XVII.
Reducing the case-size, even by 1mm is much welcomed. The matching date column and dial is nice. Bringing back the 6-9 numerals is also a good move. I just hope they lume all the numerals but I doubt this is the case. They also reduced the price of the watches by a a couple hundred of bucks which is nice I guess.
This is the Le Petit Prince edition of the Mark XVIII. It has a nice blue sunburst dial which is quite nice. I can accept the contrasting date column because of the blue dial but honestly would have preferred a no date version.
If this version came with a bracelet I would probably get it. But so far I think only the normal edition marks will get offered with bracelet.
This is the 36mm version of the Mark pilot watches. I think the gray version is quite nice. The gold version looks a bit feminine and the blue version looks a bit off.
It doesnt matter what they usually for it matters what he wants for either of them. He can request a price much more or much less then market value
I quite like the grey, Iwc have already made a cracker of a pilot watch if I recall correctly
36mm huh. I've been developing kind of a thing for smaller, more elegant watches lately, but I wonder if that'd be too tiny.
Image better now.
Sorry for the late reply. It's a Steinhart Nav B-Uhr B-Type in 47mm.
This looks fairly nice with the coffin link bracelet. Bezel seems a bit oversized though, and I'm not sure about the numerals
The bezel size looks fine. The real missed opportunities though are the missing GMT hand and the missing rotating 24 hour bezel.
Sorry, meant to say Carlton. Heres a pic.
Has a mecha-quartz movement that runs at 5bps,
What do you guys think of it?
>complication shitting up the dial that does nothing except tell you what position the crown is in

what the fuck?
Oh and I forgot to mention my very favorite part
>"stop second" function
>no seconds hand
Finally an incredibly accurate tourbillon movement that allows you to hack it to set the time down to the exact second and then does not display the seconds anyway.
Well then I guess I'm the retard after all. Still, that crown position thing is the most useless complication since whoever invented the flying seconds subdial.
The GW-M5610 is only 40mm, Baby G are women's watches.
Fug I can't decide where my next $200 go.

inb4 too crowded. I know how to use a slide-rule.
I guess you never know when you might need to pull out your magnifying glass to estimate a log using the tiny ass cramped numbers printed on your watch. It'll be very useful when you need to make engineering calculations after an EMP pulse kills your phone and all your calculators.

Well, it doesn't look too bad.
But i still like the leather zulu more.

Can anyone explain it to me?
Mfw paying for rolex while you can get this masterpiece discounted to sixty dolla from over 2k
Jewels are kind of like washes and spacers, they are hard so they don't wear down, moving parts are mounted on them, watches are quite complex, use google for a better explanation, I havent given you a great one
Slide rule. Simple but clever, I imagine you could get pretty damn fast with practice
If that's how bad it looks in a retouched studio photo imagine how shit it looks in person.
It's about as close as you're going to get for under $200.
It's not gigantic (Steinhart has a bit of a weight problem).
Bezel is ceramic.
Cyclops has decent magnification.
God tier bracelet and clasp (doesn't apply if your wrists are over 8" - not the greatest option for our resident fat Canadians.)
>marketing fluff brags about having a hacking second hand and acts like that is a complication
It's actually quite hard on a tourbillon. Most tourbillons, including ultra high end watches, don't hack.
>ultra high accuracy balance
>eliminates positional variance on an object that is carried around by a human all day long
>super accurate but it doesn't matter since it doesn't hack, so you can't set it to atomic time
