This is one of my favorite G-Shocks. It wears very small on the wrist without looking tiny. Super comfy. I love the white outer dial on yours, but I don't really like the tan bezel and band... Then again, I have the ugly olive drab version :)

Back when I used to wear a watch, I found that it did, and I preferred to remove the watch whilst typing.

I take off my watch when I'm at home. No need to wear one as there are several devices displaying time around me already, don't need something on my arm as well.
Although going outside without a watch feels weird, not so much when I used my Casio watch, but the ME watch is pretty heavy, so if I forget to put it on the absence of weight feels weird. Even if I'm just going down to pick up a package or something.

I stopped wearing a watch years ago partly due to the weight imbalance it was causing while typing, and also because I started carrying around other devices with time on them - a pen, a PDA, iPod touch and so on.

There was a period where I didn't wear a watch because I was using my phone, but sometime during winter I found it too much hassle to dig into my pockets to find my phone, so I started wearing a watch again, and since then I've worn one every time I leave the flat.

I also find that analogue clock faces are better for me; it takes me a tiny bit longer to tell what time it is, but when the time is laid out like that it makes it far easier to grasp how long for instance 10 or 15 minutes is, which makes it easier to plan ahead.

That's a good observation about the layout - with an analog watch or clock I guess you can better see time moving away and value it more.

I notice that the good majority of watches in this thread are analog :)

In all honesty, I only wear my watch as a fashion accessory in about 98% of situations. The only time it really come in handy on a regular basis is when I'm on my bike and can't get to my pockets to check my phone.

Rubber is more comfortable IMO but metal is really convenient in that it's already on my ideal length setting and it's a little faster to put on.

I usually take my watches off when I am at the desk. It is also more comfortable this way during the hotter months with bracelets. Straps isn't for me during hotter months, since they don't balance on the wrist well with heavier watch heads, and flops a bit if you don't wear them tight enough. Tight + heat = sweat = no thanks :) No specific preferences in the winter... except metal band is awfully cold in the morning.

1 thing I never understood is NATO straps. Way to make your expensive watches look like a 5 dollar Walmart special. May be it is just me.

Rubber or leather. I really don't like metal straps!
Title: Re: Post your watch!
Post by: bexleycorona on Mon, 26 May 2014, 02:51:08
I like all three for different reasons.

Rubber: Straps like the Isofrane are great since they conform to your wrist, don't gather dust and work well for swimming. The problem is they don't breathe well so it gets all sticky and yucky during summer.

Leather: Looks great under the cuff and a nice croc or alligator works well with the suit. Unfortunately you have to be careful because it can offend some people who are against wearing leather.

Metal: It's a bit more flashy and rugged. Easy to change links and you can use a diver's extension.

Nato/Zulu: Very comfortable, breathes, and security if you're diving. If one lug breaks you still have the watch head.

If I buy a watch and it doesn't have a metal band that gets replaced before I even wear it.  I have tried Nato, rubber, and leather.  I just don't like my watch fitting that tight. 

I have one of these with a third party black metal band


Also a swatch I bought in England during a port visit in the Navy.  Though that one needs a new band and to find somewhere that can polish the scratches out of the crystal on the face.

I generally prefer the feel and fit of metal, but it really depends on how the watch housing looks. Even though all my current watches are metal I generally don't like the oval shape the watch housing gets with metal straps, with nato straps the housing usually looks a lot more circular.

So most of my future watches will probably have nato straps, possibly leather, but I mostly prefer the nato look.

Just to be a trendy contrarian, I am wearing a strappy watch today: BN0000. Pix later.

[attach=1]
What has been seen cannot be unseen. Someone noted the phallic looking hour and minute hands... Those asses.

[attach=2]
The reason I bought it. Monolithic case = win.

This is one of my "smaller" watches @ 41mm diameter. The thick bezel + the chapter ring makes the actual dial very small at 22mm. It looks tiny on the wrist despite 41mm should make it a medium sized watch. It is thin but have a very deep looking dial. I just wish it was a 43mm-44mm watch. It would look just right on the wrist. Bezel action is really nice for a Citizen 60 click bezel.

I probably wear it more than I should, but it's my only watch, so.... At least I know it's good quality and it will last. There's also some history attached to the watch, it means quite a lot to me.

@laffindude, from the keycaps visible in the pic you can probably tell I like black and orange, too  ;)

Sure!

The Bulova is a Bulova 46981 Diver's watch. It's basically a copy homage of Rolex's iconic Submariner II.
It's my daily beater watch which is why the bezel is so scratched up, the date cyclops is chipped, and so on... I don't have any nicer watches yet LOL

The Omas is, as you've seen,  a Milord. Specifically, it's a 90s version (slightly newer ones have a roller wheel at the clip, and the current models are much larger, heavier, and made of other materials). The nib is an extra fine that can flex quite decently; one of my favorite pens in the bunch.

I love Seiko Divers. They have this quirky charm. Most importantly, they mostly come with drilled through lugs.
Love almost everything about the Sumo, except that bezel insert. Need to overcome that mental blockage before adding one to the stable. I love the semi shrouded look on divers.

Edit:
watch setting day of the week. My G-9000 is still <1 sec off since setting it 3 months ago... my most inexpensive watch is the time reference. Rest of the quartz are doing about +1s/week.

Orient Star diver or the dressier ones? I prefer Orient dressier watches, as the divers have this old school look that doesn't suit my style (they do look great though, especially with the deep blue sunburst dial).

New to me Blumo is running -1s/8h off the wrist dial up, and -2s/12h on the wrist. Not bad :)
G-9000, still <1 second off after almost 4 months now...

That's really nice. A shame you don't wear it more often :)

And it wasn't that expensive: go it a -30% on amazon.co.jp when the Yen was kinda low, so it was about 550 Euros / 750 USD. Which I think is a good price seen the quality of the dials etc. My model lacks the anti-reflective coating on the sapphire glass (the newer model has it if I'm not mistaken).

I could wear it more often but I already have a "daily" and... The Orient has a deployant clasp / buckle (is that how you call that in english?  it's "boucle déployante" in french) and the problem of these buckle when you're a programmer is that you do really damage the clasp by wearing it all day long: it keeps touching the desk.  The PVD plating is supposed to be good, but there's a limit and I don't want to damage it too much: I did already damage the buckle a bit.

It's the same reason I did put a NATO strap on my diver: otherwise I'm damaging the diver's deployant clasp. And a NATO strap is $20 or so so I can afford to change it once in a while  :)
Title: Re: Post your watch!
Post by: laffindude on Sun, 06 July 2014, 00:32:19
For me, it really isn't about the price, but giving some loving to all your watches.
Ahh, those coated deployant clasps. Stainless ones are easy enough to clean up. I just give it a few light drags with 3m sanding sponges (ultra-fine, ~320grit) and most of the light scratches comes out. I'll go over it with some polish if I took too much sheen off the buckle.

^It'll most likely keep going for awhile. However, after so many years, there will be a ton of tiny metal shavings and particles suspended in the lube. If the watch is a memento or heirloom worthy, it is probably a good idea to get it serviced. Otherwise, I am a use it until it die type of guy as well, especially my Japanese mass produced watches. Spare parts and movements are plentiful. For the most part, it is cheaper to swap movement than to service them.

It's no Bell & Ross, but it's a helluva lot cheaper and the aesthetic is similar, so I'm happy.

Wanting to get a new strap, but for some reason they chose to use 23mm instead of something more common like 22 or 24. I've heard 24mm NATO straps fit fine on 23mm tho, so I'll probably give that a go.

Haven't posted my watches in awhile, so here is one.

[attach=1]
I hate the nickname for this one so I won't mention it.
Sapphire crystal on a Seiko diver, MM300 clasp, 44mm diameter without crown protrusions, textured dial, unique hands, TiCN bezel, great looking 3 piece oyster style bracelet with solid end links, etc.

Only bad thing I'll say about it is the mickey mouse ears like long lugs (56mm lug to lug, barely fit my wrist). Basically no choices in getting after market replacement bracelet, at least the stock bracelet is made of win. It will look weird on straps as well. NATO/Zulu may be the only thing that will look remotely OK on this.

I've been on my large watch rotation, and I snuck in the BN0000 on bracelet yesterday. Wow did it feel tiny on the wrist after a bunch of ginormous watches. I got the bracelet recently thanks to a forum buddy ;D

It's no Bell & Ross, but it's a helluva lot cheaper and the aesthetic is similar, so I'm happy.

Wanting to get a new strap, but for some reason they chose to use 23mm instead of something more common like 22 or 24. I've heard 24mm NATO straps fit fine on 23mm tho, so I'll probably give that a go.

What is it?? When I first looked I almost skipped a beat... B&R make some super nice watches, but dem prices...

After months of hesitance, I finally decided to make my initial dive into getting some functioning mechanical watches.  I'll probably have my local horologist clean and lube them up and get them in top running condition, or at least as good as watches of their age can run.

I got this 1940's Era Hamilton (I think) with a 987s movement off Craigslist:

I [attach=1][attach=2]

Then this one, that my dad gave it to me last night when I brought home the Hamilton.  It's a family heirloom, may have been my great grandfather's or even great-great grandfather's.  The serial number dates it back to 1896 or 1897.  I really love the design on the movement.

Here are some quick thoughts after a few days:

This watch has some serious heft and seems to be built like a tank. So far I really like it and have no regrets. As an added bonus, I called them with a question and they were very helpful and pleasant to talk to.
Here's the one that I am thinking about getting as birthday present to myself (only need to see if amazon will take clacks as payments  :p  :)) ) http://www.amazon.com/REACTOR-52011-Gamma-Titanium-Bracelet/dp/B0039R5C5E

New watch time: Orient Flight.
Mini review:
Good:
Classic B-Uhr Type B dial (ish, could do without the automatic and water resist labeling or the date).
MMMM all black. good contrast with the white markings
sunburst dial in the hour region, and concentric rings for the minute/second area
white lume that glows bright enough. The hands are as bright as my brightest divers but the lume on the markers doesn't compare at all.
not horrible leather for a lower priced watch

Meh:
A bit small at 42mm diameter. Wish it was a 44mm.
No lume on second hand
Typical clunky winding sound of orient movement.

Eh:
screw down crown. No handwinding on the 487 caliber so I guess it doesn't matter that much.
Flat hardlex crystal. I'll put in a thick sapphire if I do scratch it.
No drilled through lugs. Every watch should have it.
Piqued my interest enough that I'll probably get something more authentic. Laco and Steinhart are on the top of my list.

Think that you could open up the back of the case and take a look at the movement inside?  For most vintage American watches, there are online databases that can give more information about the model and production date, based on the serial number.

Is it my eyes or does the minute and hour hands have some rust on it? If it is rusted, I would not run the watch again until you get it looked at by a watchmaker and make sure the movement hasn't rusted as well.
It looks like an acrylic crystal, so you can try some headlight buffing compound on it to make it clearer, but i would not try to take out all the scratches since it does have quite a bit of character. You'll probably want some new bracelet/strap that is better fitted to the lugs. Those look 2mm too small.

Be careful with the strap/bracelet: these kind of straps were very common decades ago but they tend to create chemical reaction (?) with the watch itself.  First thing I'd do would be to remove the strap and see if it's all green everywhere (bad) or not: I've had the issue with two watches coming from my uncle.

I'll be posting a few more watches over the coming week(s? Depending on how lazy I feel).

Today it'll be one of my few dressier pieces:
Seiko SRN035
See pix below.
It is another Kinetic, and it does require a bit of TLC to keep the battery in good shape. I would have preferred a basic quartz or solar movement, but alas I've only seen this case on this watch (including different dial colors). It has a rounded bezel on a rounded case. Both are fully polished. There are few other watches with roman numerals and retrograde day, but nothing is quite stylish as this. It just looks great with its silver hands on the black sunburst dial. The fake alligator look calf leather strap is decent enough. The watch has an exhibition case back, which is kind of odd since the movement is neither decorated nor anything special to look at.

It is a 40mm watch. This feels tiny on the wrist, but it is reasonably large for a dress piece. It really only come out of the drawer to get charged. As little as I wear it, it is nice to have in the collection.

PS, this watch has no lume. The lumaholic in me is screaming but the watch is almost perfect as it is. Lume will probably kill the look.

Green is brightest initially bar none. But it has this cream/snot color in daylight.

There are some lume that looks orange that glows green.

/r/watches is just people fawning over Rolexes and Hamiltons mainly, and where I like Hamilton watches, I can't stand 99% of Rolex watches. I don't know why, I just really dislike them.
I think they are a bit flashy.

What is up with that little window? Along with the small face, and that bracelet with so many links, I just think they look cheap. It's only the name and that crown that make them flashy.

Are those lined with Tritium?

Most decent lume used now is strontium aluminate based (Lumibrite, Super Luminova, etc). They glow brighter than tritium for the first 30 minutes or so after light exposure. They also do not degrade with age unlike tritium. If I really need high visibility, I'll go for something electronic (LED or EL).

I generally agree that most Rolex are forgettable. I do like the new Submariner with the ceramic bezel (no date of course), and the Deepsea Sea Dweller. I really can't see myself spending that much for a tool watch. Watch collecting is about having fun. People will stare at you with a blank face if you tell them about Pateks, Audemars Piquets, etc. The nice thing about Rolex is that if you bought one, they do keep the value pretty good on the 2nd hand market thanks to the strong Rolex marketing. Don't be put off by Rolex because of the pricks that wear them. They're good watches. (Whether or I think they're worth the money is another issue all together ;))

Edit: Bonus picture. Put my baby tuna on Z22 strap. I only wore that thing 2x. May be the strap will help make it into my rotation more often. Looks much better on straps IMO.

Haha, Pateks are a bit too gentlemanly for me.


Here are my aviator looking field watches with the Orient Flight.
These watches do look great when fresh. I generally don't like beadblasted finish as it is something I can't refinish myself. Then again, the Seiko + Timex = <100 bucks.
There are some bad things I can say about the Timex Military Field, but it is really not bad for the price (~40 bucks). I'll just mention how much I hate the Timex's loud ticking.
Seiko is 37mm and looks funny when I have it on. I did take it diving one time. Oh no you need a diving watch. Not.

Any RGM fans here?  Basically, the only watchmaker in America making their own movements.  I admire their classic styling, rather than trying to keep up with the latest fashions.  I've read some grumblings that they are not as American-made as they claim to be, but at least they are attempting to do it, rather than grumble about it.

The specifications of RGM says RGM/ETA movement. So it is likely it is just a modified ETA movement done in house. Who built the base ebache only have some effect on the final assembled movement. It is up to their marketing to call it an American movement. It is swiss tradition to use ebauches. In house movement movement (;)) is a recent marketing fad.

It reminds me of car manufacturers and coachbuilders.

I was under the impression that these offerings were not ebauches, with design and manufacturing done in the USA:

Ah, I see the American made movements now. That Tourbillon is made of win. http://rgmwatches.com/collections/American%20Made/Pennsylvania_Tourbillon.php It has a very artisan feel. I guess now that I read more about them, the more I like them as a company (their watches don't speak to me). Seems like they're passionate about watches and will service several high end brands. Can build custom watches with them too. Like!

My Precisionist.

I'll edit and add text later.

Edit:

So, I got another chrono. I wanted another chrono and I been swayed by the smooth gliding precisionist movement. Well here it is. I haven't seen any mechanical chronos I like, but I'll add one eventually.

Right off the bat, this watch is huge. 18mm thick, and 62mm from the tip of the endlink to endlink. It is weighing down the wrist at 260g. I knew it would be big from the specs, but DAMN is it big on the wrist. I'll spare the jokes. It is comical enough on the wrist.

Mini review:
Good:
- Tough industrial looking design
- Great silver, blue, carbon, yellow color mix.
- carbon fiber dial
- fish scale finished ring on the other edge of the dial
- Interesting hour and minute hands
- lovely twisted fluting on the crown.
- chunky bracelet that balances well, and has diver's extension hidden in the clasp
- Lovely tactile feeling on the chrono pushers, though a bit on the heavy side.
- pretty smooooooooth second hand. You can still see the steps when looking closely enough, since it is only 16hz.
- Biggest pins in a pin and collar bracelet I've seen yet.
- Takes common CR2016 battery
- Your arm doubles as a flail in an emergency

Meh:
- No sapphire. Doubtful if there will ever be compatible aftermarket option either.
- comically big. 10% reduction in all measurements would be perfect.
- Wish the second hand would reset faster in chrono mode
- Lume, so weak that it may as well not have it.
- the allen screws on the top is over the top.
- Clasp feels chinzy.

Eh:
- Screw down crown. But not screw down pushers?......
- While rated for 300m, I highly doubt I want this boat anchor on my arm when I go diving.
- wish the hour subdial can display 2nd time zone in watch mode.
- No more tuning fork logo :( I guess it is only on Accutron II now.
- The Precisionist logo on the second hands looks like bawls.


I have very few watches left on my to-buy list, and a Bulova Accutron II Snorkel is one of them. Torn between PVD and the stainless and blue model. The Precisionist does make a good impression, but if the build quality is similar I do not think I want to pay 400 for the Snorkel. May be around 300 or so.
I'll time it for awhile. I'll see if the B5 build date (2015) holds better accuracy than before. Older ones doesn't come close to holding the +/-10seconds a year claim. Then again, I don't really care that much if it is not. I set my quartz watches every time there is a short month anyways.

New watch day ;D
Can't see in the picture but this is a MIJ one  :thumb:

+lubly deep blue sunburst dial.
+Love the polished hands and markers.
+Polished ring between the crystal and bezel looks awesome (even if it makes a dial looks a bit small).
+Domed crystal
+Hardlex covered bezel insert (120click unidirectional bezel).
+brushed rehaut
+homage of Blancpain Fifty Fathom, but not a blantant copy.

-Diver "look" watch
-folded endlink
-lume of the hour markers are so small that it may as well not be there.
-I.hate.Seiko.5.badges.

~Push pull crown. uh ya. diver LOOK. I do prefer push pull crown on non-divers though.
~Wish there was a real ISO diver version.
~Day date. Would prefer just date or nothing at all.
~It is summer so I'll probably keep this on the bracelet for now. This will probably look too small on the wrist with leathers though.


Edit: extra potato pix. As usual, didn't clean the watch ;o

There's green and yellow glass available on other models too. Not that i really care but it would have been nice if they matched the green on the watch and used the green bottom glass as well.

I found a good deal on the black on black, and a honey-brown Horween strap for it. So in the end I will have the light brown strap on black body. I think it looks classy, but my wife liked the silver a bit better (of course it was over $100 more).

Anyhow, dressy Orients always make me instantly want to hit the buy now button. Here is one (Orient Millennium). I'll post other ones when I get around to it... whenever that is. :p



Edit: Just noticed it has been about 3 months since I got my Precisionist. Accuracy update: Running just over 1second faster than time.is. Summer is here so it should slow down a bit. I'll check back in another 3 months.

Nice.  Does it use their own movement?  Any comments on their in-house vs. Miyota vs. Swiss?

I've heard rumors of Orient's black coating being significantly less durable.  Have either of you seen that happen?

Foreword: I don't follow the hype of in-house movements. Some of the most prestigious brands uses ebauchs from other companies.

Orients use in-house movement. AFAIAA, the base Orient movement design of all Orient auto movements are based on a Seiko movement (this was before Seiko became the owner of Orient). Orients are generally much better regulated out of the factory than most Seikos. The worst of my inexpensive Orients runs -6seconds a day. My more refined Orients runs better than that. I can usually keep them running for a month and be less than a second off just by setting it down dial up or crown up. Orient winding rotor is a bit clunky, but they seem to be more efficient at winding than the Seiko rotors. One thing I really don't like about Orient movements is the day change button. Uh. Just UH. Other than that, I love my Orients. I think they're easily the best bang for the buck in the watch world (too bad their low end "diver's" are not ISO divers).

I am not a big fan of Myota auto movements. Even their mid range auto movements are a bit clunky and only have single direction winding. Don't get me started on the date change. It is really grindy. The Myota movements in my Citizens are better regulated than my lower end Seikos (7S, 4R). I only own a few Myota powered watches (other than my analog Casios) so my experience is limited.

ETA movements are good work horse movements. They're a bit more refined than the Japanese counterparts, but they're also more complicated. There are a lot of really fine Swiss movements. You should probably go to watch snob sites and get more details on them if that tickles your fancy.

In regards to the PVD coating... well, Orient and Seiko share many technologies. I don't see much difference in durability compared to my Seikos. Most of mine have held up fine except my baby monster's bracelet, which has a chip in the coating on the clasp. TiCN coating is pretty tough IME. I've hit my PVD BFK (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=54506.msg1334735#msg1334735) hard on the bezel, and all it got was a dinged bezel. Coating is still there.

Yeah i'm not too well versed in watches other than g-shocks (or was, not really anymore) so i didn't actually know anything about Orient but the brand sounded familiar so the fact that my wife literally chose this on her own for me surprised the hell out of me and i'm so extremely happy with it. (i'm a sucker for Japanese made things too)
I kinda wish this black disk one had the rainbow colors on it XD

Whoa that Millennium is pretty nice! i look forward to seeing the other ones!

Edit: Also laffindude, your avatar is pretty noticeable but i only see it here, do you literally only check/post in this thread?
Do you have a picture of your entire collection?

@Evo_Spec
One thing I love about Orients is that they're still assembled/cased in Japan. If lower end Orients impresses you... wait 'til you try on an Orient Star or Royal Orient. Overall, they're really a cut above their Seiko Cousins. I still love my Seikos of course ;)

I like taking pictures of what I am wearing at the time rather than photographing the entire collection. Time to savor each one ;) Some in the collection have only been wear may be 1 or 2 times, and they're back into the original box until I just have to wear it again (I have a pretty set watch rotation, and only squeeze in some other watches occasionally). It'll be a grand undertaking to do the entire collection.
I don't do G-Shocks anymore as well. Resin rot :( I only buy them if I just have to have it in the collection. You know like if it is orange ;)

PS, I don't venture outside of this particular thread much any more. I still like keyboards but I think I've own all that I want to own for now ;)

Yeah apparently that's one of the reasons my wife got this one because she knows that love to buy Japanese made things when possible and the guy at the watch place told her that this is the only one completely made in Japan as Seiko's cases are now made in China or something like that.

Well i guess that makes sense, i just remembered that i can go see your past posts so i'll definitely have to check that out to see the watches that you've already posted!

Judging by your watch taste and knowing how expensive watches get, i guess that's a good thing that you don't feel the need to purchase more keyboards and such on top of your watch addiction XD

Also i wanted to ask: should i get a watch winder? 
Reason i ask is because i'm kind of a rough guy from day to day as i randomly sometimes do things like work on my car such and just kind of randomly end up in situations where i'm trying to shove my hand in small places (insert dirty joke here) so that's why i've been rocking the G-shock up onto now and although this is a low end watch it's actually one of my nicer watches i've ever had (quality as well as style) so i don't really know if i'm wanting to wear it day to day but more on the weekends type idea.

I'd put on a G-Shock when working on the car. The finish and the Hardlex crystal won't stand up to that kind of abuse. That is if you want to keep it looking new of course. Gift from the wife... I think it is better keeping it looking presentable ;)

I do have a watch winder that I rarely use, since I don't wear most of my watches that much. Keeping them running is just extra wear and tear. If you're going to wear it everyday, and only taking it off on the weekends.... I'd say a watch winder is fine so you don't need to worry about setting your watch on monday mornings. Other way around... I would skip the winder. Just set it when you put it on. I don't bother with setting day/dates/AM/PM. Set the time and go. Unless of course, you need precise day/dates on the weekend.

I believe Seiko cases are cast and stamped out in China, and final finishing at the place of assembly (Japan or Malaysia). Most of the work is done by same machines, so I am not particularly obsessed with MIJ label. I have had QC problems with MIJ watches too.

Yeah it's not even that i "put on" the watch to work on the car it's just that i randomly decide it's a good idea to shove my hand in the engine bay to do some random **** that doesn't really need to be done lol

I never thought about it being extra wear and tear but it does make sense so i'll just set it on the weekends =)

It's not even necessarily QC issues i'm concerned with when buying MIJ it's more supporting businesses/economy since everyone makes a mistake and there'll always be QC issues.

Thanks for the info!

Here is what I was wearing today. Dial have most of the specs on it...
42mm
This thing is as light as a plastic toy watch.
The coating is likely to be TiC based on the color. It is really durable. Not a scratch on the polished parts.

This one has been hanging out by the window for the past 6-7 months. Kinda forgot it was there.

Back around 1990 my father (who owns one of the largest restorers of vintage clocks and watches) bought a significant amount of parts from a company that foreclosed on one of Tissot's old factories. They separate much of the parts into a kind of "blind box" and auction/sell them to make some small profits. Being in the business of repairing vintage time pieces, having old parts straight from the factory is much more preferable to machining new parts or using somewhat new condition used parts. After buying a few lots, one of our watch makers noticed the cloth sack which contained the fully assembled chronograph inside. After opening it up it became apparent it had never been run and was probably intended to be sold before the factory closed. Since then it sat in our safe for a few decades. After me happening upon it, my father decided to give it to me (after a hasn't-been-used-in-50-years tune up). He gave it to me for my 21st birthday and told me that there was nothing better a watchmaker could give his own son.

The new software update makes the watch a lot more useful, but after playing with the Apple watch it leaves a lot to be desired. Looking forward to the 2nd model though. Only paid $150 so I think I got a decent deal.

I had moto 360 for a week before returning it. I'll be replacing it with a pebble at some point.

The new software update makes the watch a lot more useful, but after playing with the Apple watch it leaves a lot to be desired. Looking forward to the 2nd model though. Only paid $150 so I think I got a decent deal.
I got the metal one for $200 so the price was OK. My biggest issue with Apple's watch is the price but other than that its really comfy and pretty useful.

Whats useful about the apple watch? I found it to be incredibly slow, unintuitive and astronomically expensive, for one that looks nice, it costs more than my 120gb iPhone 6, which it needs to work anyway... madness

You could get the Apple sports watch (£399), and then get a different wristband (£129) for a total of £468. That is still a lot cheaper than a £699 128GB iPhone. But I can understand that you would want nothing but the best (we are mechanical keyboard users) and could only settle for the £12000 model  ;)

I have pretty average sized wrist but pretty wide (17.5cm circumference, 6.5cm across). I generally prefer ~42-43mm case sizes with ~55-60 lug to lug.
50mm would look like a clown watch on my wrist as well. Though, some watches are supposed to look a bit weird on the wrist, like the ecozilla :D

I have the Jawbone Up app, which tracks my activity - sadly, when using activity, the battery last 4 days. It's not bad, but it's not 7 days.

Do post here once you got it. we can exchange notes on which watch face is nice. I am particularly pleased with "Shades of Time" and DIN Time - they are both just so beautifully designed.

I love it, it's a lot more practical than I first thought it would be. The battery life is unreal, at the end of the day on normal use I am usually only at 60%. I could easily go two full days wearing it and not having it die on me. I have been testing the Watch OS 2 betas and that has affected the battery life, but I'm sure that will get squared away before the public release.

Since I have the sport, I only have the ION X Glass and not the sapphire. I use mine everywhere I go and don't baby it, I treat it like any other watch. That being said, I only have one noticeable scratch from scraping it across a wall.

The fitness aspect of the watch was the deciding factor for me, and it has not let me down at all. It is truly one awesome device.

I've posted pictures of the watch before, but here it is again. Excuse the potato pictures. They're out of my Note4 so not too horrible. My cousin asked me about this watch (the red one) the other day. He is a watch guy as well, and we both got a chuckle out of this particular model. If you know your Seiko's, you'd know that the Sportura line is their motorsports watch line. The Lightsaber (i hate this nickname) is obviously an ISO diver. I guess since I started, I'll do a mini review.

+Sapphire crystal on a Seiko diver's watch
+great bracelet with solid endlinks
+ratcheting diver's extension (titanium!)
+unique looking hand sets
+no day. Hate them with a passion on divers.
+waffle dial
+awesome bezel action.
+polished ring around the crystal...

-polished ring makes the dial size smaller.
-Feels smaller than 44mm bezel diameter should.
-lume is typical Seiko diver, but the area is too small. It is not as legible at night as I would like.
-21mm lugs, and way too long. good luck finding alterative bracelets.
-the long lugs makes it stupid long lug to lug. 56mm lug to lug is really huge.

~One piece bezel. Looks great but need to replace the whole thing if you ding it.
~Kinetic. Wish it was solar...
~kinda rare. Don't know many people that own one, and not popular on watch forums.
Title: Re: Post your watch!
Post by: keshley on Mon, 14 September 2015, 08:50:55
~Kinetic. Wish it was solar...

I still have a Citizen Eco drive Titanium, albeit with a dead battery, and at least one kinetic watch in recent history, I always preferred the kinetic. Curious to why you prefer solar?

Kinetic watches require adjustment every few years, depending on the brand/caliber of the movement. But solar watches still have batteries, so they need regular service as well, granted not to the same degree. Kinetic watches do feel a bit odd I suppose when they're winding up after some big arm movements. That's about the only differences I can think of that might influence somebody one direction or the other.
Title: Re: Post your watch!
Post by: laffindude on Mon, 14 September 2015, 20:10:19
I have too many watches to keep kinetic charged. Solar, I'd just leave them by the window for a day every couple of months and they're charged. Haven't had to replace a battery in my solars yet.
Title: Re: Post your watch!
Post by: keshley on Tue, 15 September 2015, 07:20:27

Brand new watch + scotchbrite + steady hands + big bawls + 5 minutes =

Hated the polished raised center part of the bracelet so I put a new finish on it ;o

Edit:
[attach=2]
Currently loving this watch.
Kinda wish the 24hour dial is independent of the main time display, so I could set it to UTC like my GMTs.
They really plopped on the lume. It is better than the SKX009. It is comparable to other good lumes like monsters and sumo.
50mm lug to lug, and kinda tall. It wears funny, but in a good way. Wears big for its size.

Not sure what I want to do yet. keep it on bracelet or stick it on rubber?

That looks pretty good. I'm not a watch movement aficionado, so I couldn't tell if you if what's inside is good or bad. Something I will mention is 45mm for a case diameter is on the larger side of things. So just be aware. If you have a small wrist, it may look a bit out of place. But ultimately, it's your call.

I am really good at losing things though. I keep all my watches in the same place in my home. If I take it off, it's back in its place. I have lost quite a lot of running watches when I was younger just because I'd take them off wherever in the house or out-and-about. I lost one of my favorite watches that way.

A year ago I'd say "no" to a diver with any face that wasn't black, but anymore, I kinda want a silver faced diver. The MDV would be a great choice too. It has just enough vintage flavor for me, without being too retro.

That 40th Anniversary looks great! I have my other Casio on my wrist today.

Ohhh, I do like those. I'm really bad at picking out good straps/leathers to go with different watches. I'm decent with Speedmaster/Flieger/Military watches, but not too great at pairing divers with NATOS or leather. I think the simple black face lets me try and get away with a bit more instead of strictly picking specific colors for a strap.

Diver with leather is a bit funky, so it is a lot easier when you start with a funky color. Though, some watches are just weird on leather. I tried my orange monster on leather, and took it off immediately. I can't picture it on anything but bracelets and isofrane.

Whew. That Damasko is clean. I'm longing for a Flieger style watch so bad too. I bet it's fun to wear and look at in person!

Yeah it looks awesome. Lines are so clean. I wear it at work most days and it gets banged around quite a bit but the case hasn't got a single scratch on it yet. Next watch is the NOMOS tangomat GMT or Tudor Black Bay blue

That's really good to hear on the staying clean part. My favorite watch I own (Citizen BM6400-00e) is just about my daily driver, but it's showing some of its wear. As much as I enjoy that Tudor, I think that NOMOS looks magnificent. At this point, I think the Rolex Explorer II is my dream watch, largely for its GMT function and classic design. I definitely want a GMT watch, so that's a large reason why I suggest the NOMOS.

I've been perusing for another watch. I would really enjoy a Casio EF-503D-7AVDF - WW and put it on one of my leather straps, but I think I'm going for a Seiko SNK795 this Christmas. I've been looking into modding it to fit into the Flieger style. Plan on going with a domed crystal and either hands similar to your Damasko, or those with distinct arrows at the end. My only problem is finding an aftermarket Flieger style dial I enjoy. I'm holding out hope for my first real watch either for my college graduation or save for it with my new job, but we'll see when we get there.

I tried the NOMOS on in Bangkok a couple of weeks ago and was so damn close to whipping out the credit card. Actually it was already out but I could tell my partner was not too happy haha.

The seiko 5 series watches look great and are very affordable. I've wanted one for a while but i have too many watches already. The explorer is definitely an amazing watch and you should be able to find a good as new one for an alright price. I'd defs be jelly if you got one

Haha, that's too bad on the NOMOS. Someone in my extended family won a Rolex in a raffle and sold it. He used the money to buy a car. My whole family proceeded to talk about how stupid expensive watches are, meanwhile I sat silent. Stupidly expensive, I agree, but I also want to own one of those someday. I'd love to get the Omega Speedmaster (Professional, most likely) and an Omega Railmaster first. I just love how both of those look. The Seiko is more in my price range, plus I don't own a Seiko, and I feel like I need one. Whether moded or not, they still look great.

The explorer does just look so darn good though. I apologize, I continue to mix the explorer up with the GMT Master II. The GMT Master II in pepsi and red/black dials are two of my favorite watches ever made, but I could own several Speedmasters for the cost of one GMT Master II.

The speedmaster is and always will be a classic. THey have kept their value so well and look perfect IMO. My dream watch would be the black Dark side of the moon but i don't think dropping 13k on a watch at the moment is a good idea haha. I reckon you should go with a nice used speedmaster professional for your graduation. Can't ever go wrong with that.

I was thinking a used Pro would be the way to go for sure. I simply can't justify $5k on a single watch so far. I do love the Speedmaster's simplistic design, while still featuring a chronograph. It is the watch I compare every chronograph to for quality and cleanliness. Their Dark Side of the Moon Speedmasters are incredible. I really enjoy the Pitch Black offering. A bit less classy than the others, but I like the luminescence it has as compared with others. The vintage one looks marvelous as well. $13k is a lot though, haha. If I had that kinda cash I'd have to consider the GMT Master II too. Maybe someday. In the meantime, I'm keeping my eyes looking for used Pros. ;D

If you have 500 spare to drop on a watch I would recommend a corniche. Very well made and imo one of the nicest looking classic watches around. It's still a quartz movement but doesn't have a seconds hand so you can't even tell. Plus there's nothing wrong with a nice quartz movement anyways.

So cool for a fake to still be working after all these years!  I've got a real Submariner (posted a pic on a NATO on a keyboard in the beginning of this thread), bought used, but I would like to get a nice fake: there are insane chinese replica, with saphire glass etc.  Some of these replicas are so good that some parts (like the band) can be used on the real ones!  Apparently the recent chinese replicas were so good that it partly prompted Rolex to add lots of "anti-counterfeit" features to the newer submarines (newer model which I don't like at all btw: the new ones are way too large and there's too many "Rolex" everywhere IMHO).

These replicas are not allowed in many countries though: they can be seized/confiscated at airports etc.  The issue is so bad that some people who own a real Rolex do always carry a copy of their certificate of authenticity (where you can see the serial number) in their wallet / smartphone, just in case their watch is mistaken for a fake at the airport (I'm not making that up: I read that on watches forums).

Ah ah, offtopic but I can't resist, here's the toy I bought one year ago or so (it was basically the only "affordable" V8 two-seater Ferrari)... Since then the price skyrocketted so I'm glad I pulled the trigger and so far no issue. Handling is not that great, it's not that powerful at all (only 300 bhp), kinda heavy and it's already 25 years old.  But it's IMHO one of the most beautiful car ever created (and it doesn't look anything like these modern supercars without any soul, which basically all look the same due to aerodynamics). I also don't understand why they don't make cars with retractable headlights anymore: it just looks soooooo much better that way...

Lovely :D I love the look of the older Ferrari models, usually better than the newer supercars.
And I totally agree with you on the headlights, that does look much much better. But I guess that's part of the charm of the older models...

The 355 is a better car: better handling, more powerful, more beautiful sound... But the 348 is quite cheaper, a bit less expensive to maintain and more reliable than the F355 :)

Nice watch but I'm more interested in the receiver in the background -- do tell?
The receiver?  What about that microphone!

To me, that looks like a Marantz or a MCS series receiver.  (Just a guess...)

I'm not a watch guy because I don't have any watches.  But with that in mind, I think I know what would get me going. :)

What are watches that are inspired by the dials, gauges, and materials from cars?  Pics and links would be great!

Took this earlier this week. Find this watch incredibly attractive, whether you consider the price point or not. I hope to get the white/blue version over the Holidays. The dark one piece Lake House Leather strap really sets it off too.

Does anyone have experience with the super cheap smart watches? Example: http://www.amazon.com/Smart-watch-Sweatproof-bluetooth-connection-SmartPhones/dp/B015MHLKWM/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1447704878&sr=8-3&keywords=smartwatch

I'm interested in trying one of these out - for such a low price I wouldn't expect much, but as long as it shows your texts and incoming calls (and the time), I feel like it's worth a shot for $45. Thoughts?

I REALLY like Skagens, I've been thinking about getting one for my next watch.

My dad broke it to me and my brother this weekend, his dad gives him £1500 every April which he sometimes spends on a new watch. He's decided to split that between me and my brother next year, so we both get £750 to spend on a watch :3 I have no idea what I'm going to get, don't know if I should save up and try and get like £2k together and buy a Tag Heur Monaco...

Bought it of eBay for 160 euros a few years ago. I just can't stand wrist watches. As much as I love them, my wrist is thin with a slightly protruding  articulation bone ... wearing a wrist watch is just a nightmare and is not comfy for me.

I also like mechanical watches, the tic-toc, all those small gears living their own lives. Stories ? I wish old watches could talk (just like old house).

Awesome shots man, the blue really pops, but still looks modest. I particularly like the final shot, that gold frame is really nice.

Also, anyone with an alligator strapped watch, does the leather crack at the grooves quickly? Or is it stronger than regular leather? I'm kinda worried that it will split

I think it will depend on the leather treatment, if the coloring process and treatment is proper, it would last you a long time

Even though I'm not a fan of watch faces that cover the entire wrist, these were remarkably well-balanced on the hand and the titanium on the mp4-12c was a very masculine matte finish with still some texture to it.  A very nice piece.  I had no idea how much these type of watches cost at the time.  Imagine my sticker shock when he told me how much!

That's real pretty. I'm liking simple watches at the moment. That strap is really cool though. What is it made of?

A classic Timex my mother in law gave me to wear at an event here in India.  It's not gold, but stainless steel, which I found quite interesting.

I have a Seiko Kinetic SKA557.  I got it fairly cheap since its discontinued and a lot of vendors still have some stock left.

It's my daily driver, then i have a cheap timex expedition for a beater watch that i acctually like quite a bit.

Love the basic face on this! How does that strap feel after a long day? I only use leather right now but have seen that tweedy material being used on a lot of minimalist watches lately, am afraid to take my chances and hate the strap :p

Well on the underside it's leather. I have very very skinny wrists so I can't get a perfect fit and keep it a little loose. But overall I don't mind wearing it all day

I have two friends and a co-coach with a Fenix. They are HUGE. That's the main reason I wouldn't get one. One of my friends is getting a Forerunner 630. I can't wait to see that. If it's a reasonable size, I might consider it.

The Fenix is incredible though. So many cool features. I could really use it for my trekking/hiking, keeping GPS tabs on my running (my Forerunner 610 broke), and getting phone updates. I just couldn't see myself wearing it on my small wrist all day. It looks like I'm wearing the watch from Spy Kids....

The issue is I don't think I'll be using them, they're both 45mm MVMTs. I should be wearing 38-40mm so the 45mm looks HUGE on my wrist.

Hmm yeah MVMT watches can be a big large depending on how big your wrist/person is. They'll also be hard to offload too but no harm in putting them up on Craigslist if you really want to try get rid of them.

39 to 42mm watches are just right for me.

Not the craziest watch collection but I've been trying to start one up.

The color is off by a bit so I'll explain the bands. The left leather strap is an alligator print brown leather strap that came with my Hamilton Jassmaster Open Heart and the strap to the right of it is a very dark red leather strap from worn and wound and then the metal band that came with my Seiko SARB033. The other 4 are a purple, red and black, yellow, and fuchsia nato/braided nylon straps.

I'm not a watch enthusiast or anything, but I spotted this watch on a cruise and started looking into it when I got back. The Invicta Subaqua Noma IV. I bought it because it looked purty. It was my first big purchase after having started working part-time. It's quite heavy (weighs a pound!) and sometimes catches my arm hair in the links, but I appreciate every little detail of it since I bought it myself.

(http://i.imgur.com/0HfjFOy.jpg)

I got this watch for my birthday. I think I was in sixth grade? I only know it as the G-Shock, but I wear it every single day. It's sturdy, light, lights-up, and synchronizes itself to an atomic clock in Nevada whenever the signal is strong enough. I hope this watch lasts me forever.

Big Ferrari fan, and I just love how it looks ^^

Ah ah, offtopic but I can't resist, here's the toy I bought one year ago or so (it was basically the only "affordable" V8 two-seater Ferrari)... Since then the price skyrocketted so I'm glad I pulled the trigger and so far no issue. Handling is not that great, it's not that powerful at all (only 300 bhp), kinda heavy and it's already 25 years old.  But it's IMHO one of the most beautiful car ever created (and it doesn't look anything like these modern supercars without any soul, which basically all look the same due to aerodynamics). I also don't understand why they don't make cars with retractable headlights anymore: it just looks soooooo much better that way...

So that's what the French programmers drive? I am moving to France.

Thanks! The Hamilton is awesome but I'm not in love with the strap it came with. It could be my tiny wrists or the fact the strap hasn't been broken in but the padding makes it stiff/ uncomfortable. Either way I still love how the skeleton portion is asymmetrical, keeps it mechanical without being in your face about it.

Nah, there are quite a few issues with accurate replication, not counting the usual hallmarks of a fauxlex.
Milgauss, Chronometer labeling, Swiss made = wrong font and wrong size. Even ROLEX is in the wrong font.
Silk screen for the second index number is not correctly indexed
All 3 hands are wrong.

Will do some wrist shots when I get home. Though I'm not sure you want to see my hairy arms :o

Time for another episode of "Have I ever told you I love orange?"

I bought a Z3c in orange of course. Didn't NEED another phone (S6 and Note4 as main and work phones), but want something smaller to tote around every once in awhile,also another play thing.
Ran out of room on my mousepad so that's all the orange watches you get today ;D

Been looking around for a nice diver watch recently, Squale has caught my eye and so has Orient. I can dream for now, might have to wait a couple of years to get what I want.

Massive undertaking today,
I set all my quartz watches' date and timed each one.

Being the recorder keeper that I am, some interesting stuff:
My G9000 went through the year at +6 seconds. I did not wear it a single time, and it sped up during the winter.
Precisionist that claims <10SPY. Well, almost double that. +17seconds. Again I didn't wear it much and it mostly sped up during winter as well. It was +7seconds at November.
1 of my G-Shock went ridiculously fast. Since I set it in end of Nov. +87seconds!
1 of my Solar stopped for 1 day. Oops :p I guess I didn't notice the double ticking when I picked it up 2 days ago.
My kinetic only stays at 1-3month charge in the winter ;( Hard to get it in the 4-6month range.
All but 2 of my quartz ran in the positive SPD since Nov.

Average time differential is 18seconds. ~6seconds per month.

:)

Not quartz but my Hamilton is +-1/3 day and my seiko is kinda all over the place at +6/12 day.
Title: Re: Post your watch!
Post by: laffindude on Tue, 01 March 2016, 04:30:13
Seikos aren't very well adjusted out of the box. ETA in the Hamilton is a better movement regarding time keeping. However, it is also a much more complicated and fragile movement. There are a few Hamilton field watches I'd love to own, but i am not sure about the movement taking on rough outdoor activities.

I haven't updated my SPD chart for my mechanical watches. It is a lot of effort, since you'd want to run a watches for a few days for the SPD to settle down after sitting for awhile. Too many watches and not enough time ;(

Edit: post look boring without a picture, so I dug up a pix of my King Diver reissue.

My Tissot was about two or three MINUTES out per day when I first got it. I had to send it back after arguing with the woman over the phone that even though it was an automatic watch, it shouldn't be minutes out.

Ya, not even my 7S movements go beyond a minute out. May be it was dropped during shipment?

steinhearth ocean one 500 might be worth giving a shot, or a glycene combat sub, if you don't like the sporty ness of the squale (or sport watches in general)

Not the craziest watch collection but I've been trying to start one up.

The color is off by a bit so I'll explain the bands. The left leather strap is an alligator print brown leather strap that came with my Hamilton Jassmaster Open Heart and the strap to the right of it is a very dark red leather strap from worn and wound and then the metal band that came with my Seiko SARB033. The other 4 are a purple, red and black, yellow, and fuchsia nato/braided nylon straps.

All my NATO straps are from crown and buckle, they have a pretty huge selection. Deluca straps also has a bunch but their straps use thick nylon, heavier hardware, and cost way more.

Btw those straps are bright purple and fuchsia. The best burgundy strap I have is the color 8 2-piece leather strap from Worn & Wound.

And i'm not sure how you guys feel about fakes, but my brother bought me a pretty good replica of a Milgauss

Nice fake

I bought one of these in Thailand a few years ago and got really upset when it stopped ticking the following morning

Took me a day to realise that it was actually such a good fake that it had the self winding movement and it had just run out from not being worn  :D

That is a damn accurate fake.
They just flubbed up on the minute hand.

Yeah, it's still a wind up. It's just the face colour that lets it down really.

Good thing you tried it on and liked it.  I tried it on and just didn't like it but then again, I already have a 16570 (that's the previous version of the Explorer II at 40mm) and it fits perfectly.

Nice Omega Seamaster!  I really like that new model since it has the vintage feel to it.
Would gladly swap for a Daytona =P My next one will be the newer white face explorer 2. Still a while to go though

Haha I'm the complete opposite. I tried the 40mm and it looked a bit too small for me but I like bigger watches. Also not having solid endlinks and the heftiness kinda put me off.

I don't mind the heft but find smaller diameter watches fit my wrist better.  :)   The biggest I'd go is 41mm which is the Tudor Black Bay.

Yup, Subs and Datejusts are everywhere plus cyclops just scream Rolex!   I usually try to pick ones that fly under the radar (without cyclops, no polished center links, etc).

Seikos are excellent watches for the price. The SARB033/035 or SARB017 are great slightly above entry level watches. The Seiko 5 line is good if you want a cheap first mechanical watch. A lot of people really like their dive watches too.

Nafs_asp has some good recommendations with the Seiko Sarb line.  The Sarb033 and the Sarb035 are the same watch but the 033 is a black dial and the 035 is an off-white dial.  Photos of the 017 are in this thread. 

If you want divers there is the Seiko SKX007 and the Seiko Monster,  I have a photo in this thread of my Monster. 

There is also Orient watches which are another Japanese manufacture and all their movements are in house as well, I have a photo of mine earlier in this thread.

google good independent watch makers in your area and get it to them.
they might just demagnetize it, or even regulate it.
it doesn't look broken since its still ticking :)

After a while deciding what introductory luxury watch I wanted for my 20th birthday I decided to buy a 35mm Nomos Tangente. Found a perfect condition Wempe 125th anniversary edition with box, papers, and service history on WUS.

(http://i.imgur.com/fRnErxM.jpg)

The silver dial is hard to photograph, it has a matte finish but reacts to light like it has a sunburst effect. The dial changes from bright slightly metallic white to a medium grey depending on the light.

(http://i.imgur.com/hrh2Lmc.jpg)

I didn't think I'd like the gold movement as much as the normal movement but in the end I prefer the finishing on the gold movement.

I couldn't be more thrilled with the purchase, I'd highly recommend the brand to anyone. I'm surprised the watches don't retail for more. If something like the NC meetup happens again I'll make sure to bring the Tangente with me. :)

wife made me go to the outlet mall today....GOOD TIMES... nothing I like more than an outlet mall  :D

but went to the Fossil store and got a couple NATO straps for $5~ ea..  a little bit thin but fairly long so that I can actually tuck the ends in fairly easily with my 8" wrists..  here is one of the one's I bought on my SKXA35

Until then I'll have to settle for 40mm divers and 35-37mm dress watches.

Nice watch. How's the Ti finish holding up?

I caught and released a red Black Bay last year. I think I want the Blue one more. Just have to wait for another one to pop up... I think I only bought like 3 watches in 2016, breaking free of the addiction!

@Rayoui
Ya I really like the new Turtles. I am tempted to get a blue lagoon turtle, but i am leaning toward the samurai. I don't want to own 4 of the same watch, since I'll pick up a gold turtle eventually. I fell asleep last night with the blue one on, and put on my SKX today. SKX felt taller despite being smaller. It just felt weird having it on. SKX is simply unbeatable. A real ISO diver under 200 bucks. Makos/Rays are nice but they're not ISO divers.


Seiko diver lume test time.

There are a lot of FUD about lume and how certain watches glows like a torch, such as the gen1 monster and the SKX. They're only great when compared to other brands ;) Picture = 2 hours after charging each with a 100k CCD flashlight for about 30 seconds. It is too dark to focus correctly so.... :rolleyes:

List of watches
gen1 monster, gen2 monster, gen2 baby tuna, Orient Kingdiver, ?.
SKX009, Turtle, Sunfish the current lume king, Stargate, Sumo
The Sunfish was tossed in there as the benchmark, and king diver for ****s and giggle.

Best lume in person =
Sunfish
Sumo
Gen2 monster (although slightly less bright than the Sumo, it is more visible due to the larger surface area)
Gen2 canned monster / turtle. about the same
Stargate 2
Gen1 monster
SKX (this one is built in 2015, so it is not the lume composition or age).

That crown guard though. Wish it was integrated into the case.

It looks a lot less obtrusive when you are holding the watch than when you are looking at a photo all zoomed into it. I agree though, it could have been a little better integrated.

My biggest complaint is the bracelet. It looks great and is comfortable enough, but it is very light and has a fair amount of lateral flex to it. It's a bit squeaky too. It feels like a Seiko 5 bracelet but looks a lot nicer. I expected a little more at this price point but it's not too bad and I'll probably leave it on.
Title: Re: Post your watch!
Post by: laffindude on Thu, 16 February 2017, 21:42:28
Uh squeaky bracelets. Usually, I just take it to the sink and use some dish washing soap on it, and rinse. It takes care of the squeak for me.

I am probably the only person that like flexible bracelets. Too stiff of bracelet makes me have to size it a bit loose so I can move my hand freely. The only bracelet I don't need to resize for summer is my SKX009 on jubilee. It just flex itself out of the way. I do wear my watch right on the wrist joint, where it does impede wrist action when it is too tight. It just feels weird to wear it anywhere else.

After a recent conversation with a friend, I was lusting for a new timepiece. I love my Nixon Rotolog, but I wanted to get something a little more traditional that I could also use with a NATO strap. After a couple weeks of searching online, I found the Timex Waterbury and fell in love with it. I went for the chronograph version and found a strap on Amazon. A few days later (thanks, Prime) I had this beauty.

Ahh a semi forgotten watch that sat in the back of the drawer in one of my watch boxes.

[attach=1]

NY0040 Mini Review:

TL;DR
Nice beater diver, get a SKX007 unless you have to have a lume dial.

+ISO diver for ~150bucks
+Applied indices
+Lume dial version
+Lovely blackened hands and indices on the lume dial version
+Lume is just as good as the SKX
+Timing bezel clicks into place solidly and very little play
+Interesting bezel grip
+I am a sucker for the Promaster logo... especially in orange.
+Dark day/date wheels
+Looks much less ridiculous on rubber than SKX due to the lugs being higher.
+Better rubber strap than the Z20/Z22
+2mm Promaster line springbars (1.2mm at the tip). Seiko 2.5mm (1.1mm tip) flangeless bars can be a pain to remove without drilled through lugs. I bought a few of these bars in 20 and 22mm for use on my Seikos when I want them on straps. They're easier to squeeze into leathers than the 2.5mm bars as well as easier to remove.

-Good luck finding a compatible bracelet. I have one, but I have it on my BN0000, where it needs it more than this watch (too small on rubber). It is an old style bracelet with folded links that will probably aggravate anyone who've gotten used to solid links.
-Uh, clunky Myota movement. Single direction autowinding. Both winding and free spin opposite of winding make some really loud noises. I still like 7S more than this, despite this has hand winding (no hacking). Crown action is not well dampened and feels chintzy.
-Really grindy and clunky day/date change.
-Case back polishing and stamping looks like it was done by a disabled 6 year old doped up on sugar. Case itself is fine though.

~Wears small for a 42mm watch. However, it is only 1mm thinner than the SKX but wears much thinner. Very sensibly sized on the wrist.
~20mm lugs. Some of my favorite straps are only available in 22mm...
~Lollipop at the opposite end of second hand.
~Better dial alignment to the chapter rings than you get on the K code Seikos. This particular example has about 1° off in the 6o'clock marker. Rest are dead on. Giving this a pass due to the low price.
~Aside from the aforementioned clunky movement, it feels like a higher quality watch than the SKX.
~Lefty crown. I am a clusterpluck of handedness due to semi unsuccessful attempt to correct my evil lefty ways as a kid. I usually wear watches on the left wrist, unless the watch has lefty or 2o'clock crown.

I want to hate this watch but really struggling to do so. It has this almost retro charm without actually being retro. I've been tempted by the blue dial version (NY0045 I believe), and thankfully it sold before I made my decision. These are getting a bit harder to find now. It is really too bad, since just some minor changes with a better movement would make this a superior watch to the SKX. SKX just has less annoyances and has tons more aftermarket parts to correct them.

Blue dial divers. SKX almost never look blue unless it is next to a black dial... Blurtle ran +1sec over the past 3 days... Not bad.

This hasn't been a good year for me. I just noticed I put a deep scratch on the crystal of one of my monsters (don't know when or how), and a small ding on my red lightsaber (this i remember, hand under the table as I stood up in a hurry). I went over 2 years without doing a single damage to my watches... :( Semi glad I didn't do it to my expensive watches ;o

I was in a panic for about a month.  I actually LOST the Caravelle after the battery died again.  I put it "somewhere" so I could replace the battery and used the good 'ol $8 gift shop watch in the meantime.  The other day I stumbled on it when I was rearranging the nightstand.  Eureka! Brought it back to the jeweler and had the new battery put in!
Great watch!

I think the busy dial is big part of the appeal to me. Vast majority of my collection is boring black dialed divers. This is a bit of an antithesis to that along with my ugliest watch of all time: SKA425 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=54506.msg1514755#msg1514755).

I've been trying to add a bit more colors to the collection; mainly blue and orange divers. I'll add a few more pilots watch along with some field watches (SARB017 has been calling my name). My new rule for the year is unless it is some special edition, or has something special about it, I can't add it to the collection.

Regardless, if anyone wants to buy propper nato's this model (there are like 4 other colors) is what is worth spending extra on.

The movement is a technological masterpiece! I just love the sweeping seconds hand and the craftsmanship of Grand Seiko's are second to none.

The Rolex is still in the picture but i moved it down the line cos i know i will get it eventually. Nice Nomos btw, I was so close to getting a Nomos Tangomat GMT (Bangkok ltd etd) and now its gone up in price by $2000aud

The Rolex is still in the picture but i moved it down the line cos i know i will get it eventually. Nice Nomos btw, I was so close to getting a Nomos Tangomat GMT (Bangkok ltd etd) and now its gone up in price by $2000aud

Grand Seikos are something I've yet to see in person but I've heard the craftsmanship is insane, back when I owned a SARB033 I was amazed at how clean it was for a $200 watch.

Thanks! I'm a freak for Nomos, there are quite a few watches from them I want to buy. Right now the mint Tetra with power reserve (I know it's small and a woman's watch but I still want one), Dark Navy Ahoi, and Navy Zurich GMT are my top 3 but there are a few ltd edition Tangentes I want.

For the time being my focus is finding a blue linen dial 1601 or 1603 for my 21st birthday.

Edit: What GMT Master II were you looking at? I personally prefer the vintage GMT Master Is but the new ones are still awesome.

Oh those are all nice especially the Navy Zurich. You've got a damn nice collection and you're not even 21! I think my best watch at your age was a swatch haha.

I'm in line for a Batman GMT Master ii but i don't think i can afford that one anymore after last weeks purchase. I guess it depends how long it's going to take for them to find me one. Last i heard, it was going to be a 1.5 year wait =_="

Damn, that's pretty crazy. Due to the limited availability of the GMT Master IIs is there a lot of dealer mark up?

Btw you can't go wrong with the new GMTs, the ceramic bezels are gorgeous in person. The last time I stopped by a local watch shop to chat about the new Nomos Neomatiks I tried on the WG Pepsi GMT Master II just because I could, sadly they wouldn't open up the FP Journe case for me to take a look.  :(

I think Rolex rrp on the batman as well as all SS gmt master ii's are around $10500aud but the dealers have marked it up by about 1k. You won't be able to find one brand new for less than 11.5k

The WG pepsi GMT is stunning! If i had a spare 40k i wouldn't hesitate on getting it. I wish they made it in SS though so it's more affordable for people like me. Affordable lol

That sucks but they know they can still find buyers, I heard the new ceramic Daytonas are also a pain to find.

Agreed, the WG is cool but totally unnecessary.  :))
For Pepsis my favorites are the vintage GMT Master Is that have the magenta cyan faded bezels and chocolate dials, not that those would be any cheaper than a new WG Pepsi...

Yeah i have heard dealers marking up the ceramic Daytonas by 10k. That is ridiculous.

I think the 1980-1990 Pepsi GMT master ii's are still manageable atm. If you're looking at getting one of those then i would suggest buying fairly soon because they are guaranteed to go up in value in the not to distant future. I think i've seen some for the same price as a new ceramic one.

@superbia Oh that strap look nice. Interesting features. Is it some sort of resin/plastic material?

@bevo. Nice snowflake. Grand Seiko dials are AMAZING.


I've always taken the mind over matter approach in collecting: If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. Now I really own too many and some of my favorite watches sits in a box for months at a time before working my way around the rotation. So I guess I've slimmed down my future buy list to the following (in no particular order):

Black Bay in blue. Not sure how this one fits into my current directive though. May be swap for a blue Pelagos?
Doxa 1500T
Oris Aquis Date, grey dial with orange markers. Because orange.
Laco Friedrichshafen
Grand Seiko GMT in cream (http://www.grand-seiko.com/collection/9s86/images/top_img.png). dat dial :eek:
Green alpinist

May be more pending Baselworld

Hi, Since you asked for it, here are some photos.
I would say it's a multi-layered high-tech rubber/synthetic.
Here are black (carbonish), and brown (burgondyish), and there are also a green and blue one, so in total 4 colors.
By far the best natos for what their current asking price, they might raise the price to 3 figures if they start getting ton of orders, so keep it within the keyboard community  :D

Anyone been keeping up with Baselworld this year?

Overall I'm pretty split on the releases.
I love where Tudor is going with the Black Bay line by using steel bezels and the riveted style bracelets.

I hate what Rolex decided to do with the Sea-dweller, sure the red text is cool but now the watch is just a larger Submariner. They also added a new dial/ metal option for the Yacht Master but overall I think they're getting more and more generic as a company. The new Cellini Moonphase is cool but the moonphase is about as useless as it could possibly be (I know it's a poetic complication that isn't very useful normally but still). The new Daytonas look cool but aren't anything crazy. I'm hoping that the Swiss watch market turns around so Rolex can start making some cool watches again, I'd love to see another triple date chrono or moonphase from them. A 6236 remake would be perfect!

The Omega 1957 Trilogy is a pretty cool set but again, nothing that crazy.

Last but not least, Nomos. The new Campus Club does make me more interested in the Club line (they look much better in person than in pictures) and the new dial colors for the regular Club are nice but don't make me want one. The new Ahoi dial colors are awesome and have solidified my decision to eventually add one to my collection, especially since they updated it to their newer neomatik movement.

@superbia. I'll see about getting one. Not the biggest fan of natos nor canvas. Rubber may be better than the nylon/perlon I've tried and disliked. Then again, I'd prefer 3ring zulus if I were to wear a retention style strap, but you'll usually find me nubbing it out with a bracelet. I like my metal bracelets more than I'd like to admit ;D

@Joey  I am used to gargantuan sized watches. 50mm lug to lug is long but quite a few watches in my regular rotation are longer. Larger watches does feel less refined, especially when when dropping 5k on a watch. That stainless steel bezel Black Bay does kinda hit the spot. Though, another black dial watch... ah. I am more tempted by the Black Bay 41. That is excellent. I loved the 36mm but it is small for me (18cm/ 66mm across). If anything needs a gilt dial, this is it. I kinda wish they up sized the hour markers. They don't look as proportional as the 36mm. May be it is just me, I think they wrongly sized this watch. It would probably work better ~39mm.

Not feeling too much on the new Rolex and Omegas. Datejust 41mm is a bit blasphemous, but does it look great with the blue dial. Sea Dweller has been meh since Deep Sea came out. They definitely should have made it more unique instead of just being the middle brother. Yacht Master got worst. My cousin had the old silver dial one, and that one is excellent. New one looks like cheap toys.

Omega's 60anniv Planet Ocean in blue ceramic and orange accent is something right up my alley... except the gaudy look doesn't really suit the brand. I'd buy one if it was a more affordable brand. May be like a G-Shock in that color scheme.

Seiko. I like they're doing more Grand Seiko divers, but man are they ugly and look out of place in the Grand Seiko line. 62MAS reissue is interesting but stupidly made it limited edition.

Casio, meh at all the offerings. They're trying too hard to move up market and missing all the marks. More classic affordables please.

Oris, I like some of the new colorways for the Aquis or at least I haven't seen it before. Though I think I am gonna hold steady on the tungsten bezel version.

Nomos, I've heard they're really nice watches... but I am one of those weirdos that wear divers everywhere, or the occasional aviators. Club Campus does look a bit more beefy than the gentlemanly watches before. I am on a reversing trend of watch sizes, so may be I'll get one eventually.


Edit: post look boring without a picture: My Bravo. 52mm lug to lug, 45mm diameter. When I heard it was gargantuan, I just had to have it. Was a bit disappointed when it didn't wear that big. Loving it now since it fits just right. Slightly disappointed at the lume. This is slightly better than the SKX (dig a few post back for the lume comparison, SKX's lume is pretty pedestrian compared to other Seiko divers). Considering how good the lume is in the OS300 (old lume king, and probably still the 2nd best), I really expected more. I'll write a mini review later.

I totally agree on the Datejust 41mm, sure it looks good in photos but in person it's way too big.

I also forgot that they started making the Sky-Dweller in SS which I guess could be good as a business decision will probably piss off some customers. Before we know it they'll be making SS day dates...

Seiko. I like they're doing more Grand Seiko divers, but man are they ugly and look out of place in the Grand Seiko line. 62MAS reissue is interesting but stupidly made it limited edition.

Yeah, I've always thought the GS divers look out of place. The new dress watches in the GS line do look pretty perfect though.

Oris, I like some of the new colorways for the Aquis or at least I haven't seen it before. Though I think I am gonna hold steady on the tungsten bezel version.

Oris seems to be one of the few companies still trying new designs instead of rereleasing exact copies of old watches, at some point I'll probably own one but they aren't near the top of my collection checklist.

As much as I enjoy wearing my modded Squale 1545 I'm usually wearing my Nomos Tangente if I know I won't be doing anything too active.

Love the wabi on the Squale. However, it always irks me to see missing lume pip on the bezel. Drives me nuts. Rough side out purp leather really give the watch some character. Love it.

Your Nomos is really nice. Love flame blued hands on white dials. Love the almost all dial look.

Out of all the newish Rolex, I still think Air King is the one to get. Most other ones were fine the size they were. New dial options are welcome of course.

Grand Seikos, I honestly don't mind the quartz diver. It is boring and perfectly fit the line, and white dial version looks yummy. (seems to be missing on the Grand Seiko page. Discontinued?) The other divers are all too gaudy. Seems like they only have the spring drive 200 and the new hi-beat 600m divers left. I would have dropped the hi-beat movement in the quartz diver's case. And use the boring dateless dial.

Large holdings company swallowed up too many brands. Richmont group is less bad than the soulless Swatch group, but the brand identities are still dying in Richmont. Luckily Oris have not been caught in that. Speaking of Swiss watches though. Man I am really hating the death of ETA ebauche. ETA movements were cheap to service and replace parts. Now buying Swiss watches is a minefield. You'll never know if you'll be able to source movement parts in a couple of decades (and lets not even think about the cost if you can). Selitas Oris is using is kinda ok, but no where as consistently made as the ETA it is based on. ETA had the manufacturing down to a science.

I had a squale 50 atmos originale opaco but decided to sell it. Ended up getting more than what I paid. I was just a but annoyed with the lume application inconsistency.

Lume inconsistency is another pet peeve. The first watch I ever flipped (I've only flipped 3) is a MM300. It really is no wonder it is one of the most flipped watch on the forums. One can say whatever they want about a master craftsman hand painting it. It is uneven. I would prefer evenly done by a machine than unevenly done by a craftsman.

I was at a high end watch boutique and spent maybe 45min looking at and talking about the Journes they had (the shop was empty). Sadly I couldn't convince them to let me try one on but I wasn't expecting that plan to work.

The finishing on the dials and movements is absolutely gorgeous whether you're spending 25k or 100k+. Truly one of my grail companies along with ALS, hopefully my choice of engineering as a major will eventually pay off so I can afford one. The Chrono Bleu has what has to be one of the best dials in the watch world.

Haha, we have a GS boutique here ;) Played with many (including Credors mmmm!). Since I am not allergic to quartz like many snobs enthusiasts are, I found the GS quartz to be an absolute steal. Same high quality dial and finishing. I haven't seen something in this price range that has this level of quality.
Was going through the Rolex site earlier, and man Oyster Perpetual 39 in rhodium dial is yummy AF (the blue is good too). Wish it had fluted bezel option.


[attach=1]
Mini Orient Bravo Review:
45mm diameter, 52mm lug to lug, ~14mm thick, 24mm lug width, 22mm clasp.
I paid less for this than for my Turtle. It is an absolute steal at this price.

+Sapphire crystal
+ISO diver
+Solid clicking bezel. Has a bit of back play, and a bit on the stiff side.
+Brushed slab side case
+Signed crown (with a band that show you if it is not screwed down).
+Solid end links. Fits almost perfectly with no play.
+Chunky bracelet (I don't mind pin and collar on the outside link, but would prefer the collar on the center link)
+Drilled through lugs. Screw any manufacture too cheap to do this.
+2.5mm springbars like the Seiko divers.
+I love power reserve complication. It is lumed too.
+No day. Date fits neatly long the 4o'clock index.
+Applied indices
+seconds lume pip on the correct end
+Ahem, aligned chapter ring. LOOKING AT YOU SEIKO. 12o'clock index, chapter ring, and bezel line up perfectly. As it should for a ~800 MSRP watch.
+Good movement. Not a clunky low end movement. Same movement as OS300. Runs about the same ~ +/-2 SPD.
+Orange is yummy

-The indices doesn't have blackened border like the hands.
-Typical overly busy dial texts. M-Force logo is ugly AF.
-Lume is so so for a diver
-Not sure about only have a mini crown guard on 1 side of the crown.
-Crap clasp.
-Signed crown indexes almost perfectly... except it is upside down when tightened. Tried many times but I don't think there is another engagement point for the crown.
-Hand winding mechanism doesn't disengage cleanly when screwing down as the OS300 for some reason. Almost think I broke it the first time I set the watch.
-Crown doesn't pop when unscrewed. It kinda just hangs around the engagement point and a bit stiff to push in.
-Stiff bezel. May be it'll break in.

~24mm lug width. Would have preferred 22mm for more strap options.
~1piece PVD bezel. You're stuck with the bezel if you don't like how it look. Good luck finding aftermarket parts since it is not a SKX or Mako.
~Black chapter ring on an orange dial. Not sure if I would want orange there or not. Kinda looks ok as it is now.

Same high quality dial and finishing. I haven't seen something in this price range that has this level of quality.

I'm not allergic to quartz but I for sure prefer a mechanical movement to a quartz movement. My real issue with high end quartz watches is you're still paying a good amount for a watch where the movement isn't too different than a $200 or $300 quartz watch. Like why buy a $2k GS quartz when you can get a SARB033 or 035 for sub $200? Sure you get a but higher quality finishing but the SARB033 I owned looked like a much more expensive watch than it was.

Was going through the Rolex site earlier, and man Oyster Perpetual 39 in rhodium dial is yummy AF (the blue is good too). Wish it had fluted bezel option.

Fluted is for sure the way to go for Datejusts, Oyster Perpetuals, and Day Dates but IMO any one of those watches over 36mm is larger than it should be. Speaking of blue dials, I'm currently saving up for a blue linen dial 1601 or 1603 for my 21st birthday.  :)

Well, temperature compensation and pre-aged crystal aren't something you get on cheaper quartz. For other brands I may agree about the quartz thing, but not so much 9F movement in GS.

SARB033 is nice and looks more expensive than it is. Though, for the price bracket, I am going Orient.
That's a pretty dial on the Rolex. Love textured dials.

Damn do they know how to finish a watch! I've never seen one in person but I imagine pictures don't fully capture the beauty.

Note to self, figure out where I can see a Lange in person.

Until then this'll have to hold me over.

Awesome, NOMOS has a really good thing going, and they're in good company. It's about a 2 minute drive between the Lange and NOMOS buildings in Glashutte.

Love the S2K, too!

I love my Wempe Tangente and after a few interactions with Nomos I love the company, at some point I plan to add a few more pieces from them to my collection. I've been eyeing the Tetra Kleene (I really like small watches) but I have a few more things to check off before I circle back to Nomos.

If I'm ever in Europe I plan to visit a few manufacturers, Lange and Nomos included. I don't think I'll ever do it myself but watch design and manufacturing fascinates me, especially some of the design choices FP Journe makes (both movement and aesthetic). Have you ever had the chance to see a Journe in person? I was at a boutique and saw a few Octas through the glass and was blown away. Something like a Chrono Bleu or an mop dial Chronomètre à Résonance are IMO about as pretty as watches get. Watches like the Philippe Dufour Simplicity are also at the top of my list but Journes feel much more accessible.

The AP1 belongs to my dad but I get a ton of seat time during the summer, they aren't fast but are an absolute blast to drive.

You've got some fine taste. I do a lot of work in the watch industry and am very familiar with Journe/Dufour and their ilk. Pictures do them no justice, so I'm glad you had the chance to handle one in the flesh, they are truly special watches. I would highly recommend a visit to Glashutte if you ever get the chance (maybe stay in Dresden and make the drive to the valley). The people I've met at Lange, Wempe, and NOMOS are among the best I've encountered, truly kind folks.

If you ever need any suggestions on where to stay drop me a PM.

Thanks! My taste has been cultivated by spending countless hours on instagram, youtube, and reading watch articles non stop + some limited experience seeing pieces in person. When I turn 21 later this summer I'm going to see if I can maybe make it to a few redbar meetings to see more watches I read about in person.

You work for the 'dink right?

I visited Glashutte, toured Glashutte Original, and it's a wild experience.  They let you visit every single part of the factory, give you champagne and lunch, etc.  I'm sure it's the same with ALS and Nomos.  Dresden is a beautiful city too, be sure to visit VW's "Glass Factory" if you're interested in cars.

Got this from a jewelry store that had been closed for 35 years. After the owner died, his daughter went through everything and found tons of "new" old stock just sitting there. I bought this about ten years back. Well... to be honest... I bought 15 of them. :D   It's made like a tank - solid chunk of stainless steel.

I own a few watches, but I have always wanted a watch (case, band) made out of tungsten carbide, mostly because I have seen how durable it is with my wedding band (does not scratch).

I was only aware of a few really cheap quartz watches made from it, and one Swiss Legend model.

But in the past few weeks I randomly read about some TC watches from Android Watches USA in FL (now renamed Aragon), which caught my interest.

Anyway, one ebay auction later I am now the proud owner of an Android AD726 Hercules watch.  44mm black dial, luminous indexes/ hands, exhibition caseback, sapphire crystals, SII NH35A movement with date.

Now being made from TC, I knew it would be heavy - but this thing tips the scales at 10.5oz (it is awesome!).

I think in the past 3 years I've spent an entire total of 48 hours without a watch on my wrist. I plan my day to the minute, I can GPS myself when I'm lost hiking and I can trust it to motivate me to try new sports. This one is my currently daily drive, and I've had it since I want to say March (?) and just switched its band today.

BN0191 mini review
So it is around that time of the year that I reward myself with a watch. Been pretty good at resisting getting new watches lately, but alas got another one ;) I mean, just look at it: blue dial with orange second hand. I just had to have it. This is a new release here, and the store just got it on the shelf over the weekend I believe. Being my usual ******* self, I made sure all the markers lined up with the indices, and all the second ticks hit the indices as well.

Kinda new to me so no tl;dr.

+Beefy 44mm watch, but only ~48mm lug to lug. Wears medium large for its size due to the shorter lugs.
+ISO diver
+Blue dial, and sexy concentric circle pattern, with slight sunburst look.
+Orange second hand. Lume on the hand is on the correct end. Take note, Seiko...
+High polish hour and minute hands. Love the Washington monument style hands.
+High polish applied hour markers.
+Blue lume and it is pretty good.
+60click unidirectional bezel. Very solid satisfying clicks with very little play. It doesn't feel well dampened like Seikos, but it also has less play and feels more mechanical.
+Sloped bezel insert. Looks great.
+Beveled cutout for the date window, and thankfully no day.
+2mm fat Promaster springbars.
+Pretty solid bracelet with solid endlinks (looks like 22mm, too lazy to measure). It is of the pin and collar with collar in the center link construction. This is my preferred bracelet link attachment style. Somehow it feels a little more loose than my BN0150 (I actually have the MIJ version with different model number), and BN0100. They also cheaped out on the clasp, which doesn't have the ratcheting diver's extension. Typical squeak. I'll take it and rinse it down with dish watching liquid to kill the squeak later.

-No diver's extension. The clasp is cheap, and not up to the level of the other watches mentioned above.
-Usually like polished ring around the crystal, but this is indexed. It just looks a bit busy.
-Bezel grip is not very grippy. Prefer sharper cuts on the edge
-Second hand is skinny, and could use a bigger lume dot.
-Mineral crystal
-Big watch with 3 o'clock crown. I haven't worn it enough, but I just know it'll annoy the poop out of me by digging into back of my hand.
-Reverse beveled crown. It sticks out under the crown guard. Another reason it'll dig into the hand.
-Cheap lasered signed crown. If they are going to go cost down, I would have preferred just plain polished. It doesn't line up correctly, so it is just extra ugliness.

~Ecodrive. Would have preferred an auto, but solar is fine-ish since I hate the clunky Miyota mechanical movements. Going to be a great grab and go watch.
~E168 movement. No complaints. Own a ton, all works fine.
~While I like the promaster logo, it does look a bit cluttered. At least it is not stupid as the Prospex PS logo.


Over all, it is a nice companion to my other Ecodrive divers (all my other Ecodrive divers are black dials). Though, there are a few cost down things compared to the older watches. The styling remind me of the Citizen Signature Grand Touring (I love the handsets on this), but actual ISO divers. I think my favorite of the BN line of divers is still the BN0000 with the monocoque case, even if it is a little small. That one needs an update. The BN0100 and 0150 are both a bit on the boring end. BN0191 is a lot more festive. Love the way all the dial and polished parts catches the light. This should have came out before the summer months so I could have taken it under the sea.

Lately, I been dying for one of these:
[attach=1]
The Citizen AQ1030. I like the band on the titanium AQ1020, but prefer stainless, the 40mm size, thinner, and the dial on the 1030. 1020 does have double domed sapphire to the flat in the 1030. Should cost ~2k after the standard discounts. Ouch.


Oh Lordy, this graphite dial version is excellent too:

From left to right...the first watch my wife bought me when we had only been dating a few months...it was very cheap, maybe $30, but it was bought with love.
Middle is my second watch that she bought me, a Fossil that I still love wearing to this day. Rose gold is the way to my heart!
And finally is my Oris Big Crown ProPilot. Absolutely love this watch....can’t say I love how much my wife spent on it, but it will last a lifetime.

hi gaiz, I got more Seiko divers incoming.
I'll post a recent acquisition meanwhile:
SBDC055, or more commonly known in the west as SPB071. Mine is a JDM version with awesome JDM hang tags  :)) Ya, there is no difference.

Love the mixed lume color. Wish Seiko was a little less stingy with the red on this PADI edition, but that wave textured dial is loooovely. 3 words: Domed. Sapphire. Crystal. This is enough to put it on your list of Seiko to buy. Perhaps in another colorway if this is too gaudy. Highly recommend this version for the dial though. It is just a little bit on the too shiny side. It is also very reasonably sized @ 42.5mm diameter and 50mm lug to lug. For divers of oceans instead of desks, the strap is not that long. If you have tree trunks for wrists, you'll want an extender or put it on NATO/zulu. This isn't the hard PU strap, but a nicely satin finish silicone strap. Very pliable and stretchy. Feels better than the silicone from the past few years as well.

LAWL. I been collection watches for about a decade. Ya... It definitely is the most expensive hobby I ever took up. Well surpassing my cars, Leicas, tools, etc. These are mostly gone, but watches are just too personal to let go :o

I have tried seiko silicone on some gigantic kinetic diver, and it was uber good.
Recently I wear a non-seiko silicone nato (cheapestnatostraps) on my 7a28, and it's the best non-metal strap I have ever tried.

One of these? or the black and orange version?
[attach=1]
The silicone is slightly more pliable and less springy to bounce back to original shape compared to the lume king. The satin texture is also slightly softer. I have a twiggy 17.25cm wrist*. The lume king's strap is just way too long for normal use, and the extra flops a bit after the keeper.

*6.5cm wide, so I could wear larger watches without looking ridiculous.

Most of my watches are on bracelets. I only wear leather when I want to be contrarian or have to be in a monkey suit. Straps... only when I don't have any other choice :))

Yes, but it was a PADI, and even with small hands, that 'pig' wears comfortable.

Ya I like it. I have the black dial on bracelet version too. That thing is more unwieldy than on the silicone strap. The PADI version is nice with that blue sunburst dial, but I am trying to limit buying kinetic watches. They're a bit of a pain to keep charged when you have a lot of watches.

Well, approaching end of the weekend. Ya... I'll do a mini review in 2-3 weeks once I get a little more wrist time on these.

Sneak peek picture  :-*
Title: Re: Post your watch!
Post by: laffindude on Sun, 18 March 2018, 00:46:18
If you zoomed in on the sneak peek picture, you may already seen that the mystery watch has a green dial. It is the SBDC059.
[attach=1]

It is the limited edition of the larger non-limited edition version of the 62MAS reissue SBDC051 (small limited edition is SLA017, which has nicer movement). I've talked a bit about this series of watches last time, but I'll go over it again. 50mm lug to lug with 42.5" diameter. It is nice Seiko is back at making more reasonably sized diver's watches again. This particular version has a lovely blue green sunburst dial. The indices and hands are gilded. This has the hand set from the Marinemaster 1000 (emperor tuna). Big bold hour hand with a Washington monument minute hand. Lug width is 20mm that tapers down to 18mm at the clasp. Clasp has the familiar pop-open diver's extension. It also has machined extension in the main folding part. However, it still have the el-cheapo stamped and folded outer clasp. This watch is not for you if you like chunkier watches. It feels slightly bigger on the wrist than an SKX007, but flatter. May be somewhere between stargate and the 007 in feel.

The watch is coated with Diashield (the bracelet feels coated too). Based on the color of the coating, I am guessing it TiC based. It has kept my watches looking pretty new, however don't expect miracles if you're rough on your equipments. It is still going to scratch if you rub it against concrete and such. Afterall, the coating is microns thick. Also, as I've previously mentioned, it has a domed sapphire crystal. The bezel insert is shiny, with the numbers and indices printed on it. It doesn't feel quite cold to the touch like metal. Not entirely sure the material, or it is just some coating.

+domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on the inside
+lubly sunburst blue green dial. more blue or more green depends on lighting.
+medium sized.
+ever reliable 6R15 movement. 50+ hour power reserve.
+great handset and applied indices.
+ISO diver
+lovely layers of brushed and polished surfaces. It has a lot of pop on the wrist.
+diashield = no fine microscratches
+120click bezel, dampened with o-ring. Pretty standard affair on Seiko divers.
+grippy coin-edge bezel
+no day. gimme no date version please.
+less wide bracelet.
+beefy crown, with nice smooth crown action.
+beefy 2.5mm springbars
+drilled through lugs


-again, Seiko place the lume on the wrong end of the second hand
-still hate the PS prospex logo.
-not sure about white texts on the dial, but completely gilded may look worse? Not sure.
-pricy for a 6R15 powered watch
-don't like how the solid endlink integrates into the watch. Feels tacked on.

~3 o'clock crown... would have been a negative if it was a larger watch. medium watch... it doesn't dig into the back of my wrist.
~unsigned crown, it is polished at the end. See my previous mini reviews to see this is what I would do if they can't make the signed crown line up correctly.
~no squeaky bracelet. it is probably the slipperiness of the coating that prevented it.

Currently really tempted to add the standard black version (or blue version on bracelet), and make it one of my primary daily driver. It really is that good to make me want 3 different colorways :))

Picked it up on the MD group buy.  Model FAC00005W0.  Second gen Bambino classic.  Also my first automatic (last several were all quartz movements).  Thought I was going to drop the brown band for a black one butthe brown is dark enough that it doesn't clash with anything I wear.

Only thing is I need to get used to winding it if I don't wear it for a little while!  I go to a buncha concerts and don't like taking a watch in case it gets damaged but that means it'll sit a lot on weekends and it's power reserve can't get it through the weekend.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180319/5d9167760ab47e4e06963ad24f87f923.jpg)

Was wearing my PADI today. Figure I do a family portrait:
[attach=1]
3 Generations. Edit: that is 3rd gen, 2nd gen, then 1st gen. put 3rd gen on the left, closest to light source, to get the dial color.
I think I've posted the first gen. I don't think I posted the other 2. Yellow on black 2nd gen is my favorite of the particular gen. PADI is obviously a stand-out for 3rd gen.

Went from PU > stainless steel > ceramic shroud. I think the stainless 2nd gen's shroud feels the least tacked on. it is well integrated with rest of the case, where as the 3rd gen feels like it sits on top. First gen is even better integrated, but PU :( 3rd gen measures about the same as other 2, but wears bigger. I didn't measure it, but feels like the shroud may have bigger diameter on the face side of the watch.
EDIT: measured @ 52 north to south, and east to west. There are points where it measures 54mm, not including the crown. It is a big watch. 1st and 2nd gen only measures about 48 diameter. 3rd gen is borderline clown watch. At least I got it in festive colors.

I guess since I started, may as well talk more about it.

hands and markers
1: pretty unique looking hands that is bifurcated. Seconds hand is from the Sumo. Has needle points on the tips of the hands. It may help with reading the finest marks on the chapter ring... but if you want that much accuracy, get a radio controlled G-Shock.
2: Hand set from monsters. Wish it had a more unique looking handset. I like the updated markers.
3: I know I've seen the hour hands before somewhere, but can't remember exactly. Minute hand looks the same as 2nd gen at first glance, but the 2 angles near the tip are rounded. As the picture show, it has the most 3d markers. The rounded look with triangles is really nice. Note that this the only one in the series that has seconds lume pip on the wrong end.
EDIT: The handset I've seen on the Transocean. I think this series came out before that.

Dial and chapter ring:
1: has the finest graduations on the chapter ring.
2: Boring matte black, but boring is good.
3: Sunburst dial that is slightly matted over. Very interesting under spot lights.

Bezel:
Mostly the same, just different colors. 1st gen has the boldest engravings, and numbers are curved along the circle.
EDIT: I keep forgetting things when I make edits. I measured the bezel and it 4mm bigger on the 3rd gen.

Lugs:
First gen had the longest, and 3rd gen is shortest. 2nd gen is a happy medium.

straps:
1: this actually came on the bracelet I put on the 2nd gen.
2&3: bracelet is a upsized version of the monster's bracelet. I prefer the one from 1st gen. My 3rd gen is obviously on the silicone strap. Not the latest formulation. Not sure if I like this more or the newest silicone more.

Lume:
3>2>1

They all use the same 4R36 movement. Not much there to talk about.
I picked the most eye catching of each generation. If it wasn't for the PADI edition, I would have easily picked 2nd gen as my favorite. Now it is a toss up between 2 and 3.

PS, I still refuse to call these baby tunas.
PS2, 3rd gen PADI is VERY loud. Great if you want the attention. Not so good if you want to fly under the radar.
PS3, I should do a proper review of these 3 together -___-

Here is a post repair shot of my Seiko SNZF17. One of the hands was sticking and just needed opening and reseating.

Who doesn't wear a watch?!  :confused:
Honestly I feel naked without mine!  I went a while where the only one I had had a broken strap and damn Skagen had to be weird and use a non-standard fastening style so I never got it replaced.  Probably a year or so with no watch and it felt sooooo awkward.  Now I have a new one (we I've had it a few months now) that's also my first automatic (all others were quartz) and its great to just have one on my wrist again.

Just bought this, yes, it's used but has been re-conditioned like new, and it ain't cheap either. I fell in love with Rolex Oyster since my dad bought me one a long time ago.

Here's my old Rolex next to the one I'd just gotten (yes, the very same one my dad had gotten me decades ago), I might get an all steel Rolex in the future.....pardon the slight time difference between them. I'm in the habit of setting my watch 2-3 mins ahead.

Bought a watch winder box to ensure that, when I wear one (and thus wind it automatically), my other two watches don't stop on me due to my not wearing them. That circular platter thing that seats my two Rolex is constantly rotating/spinning relatively slowly to ensure my watches are being wound.

No. The whole point of a beater is you don't care when it gets dinged or scratched. It has nothing to do with the watch but instead it's all about your OCD level.

Sorry guys/gals, I think I have failed to use my words in a way that communicates my thoughts.

I totally agree that any watch can be a beater/daily, that is spot on.

What I meant was I generally only like automatics. I have always viewed G Shocks as work/sport/physical activity watches and nothing more. So when I saw that they had taken the square digital one (which I see as kinda the standard, poster child for good value for money and ready to take some serious abuse) and added some classiness (subjective use of the word), I really like what they have done. In my opinion it seems like a contradiction to what I view a G Shock to be and this is what I like about it.

Does this make sense?

Oh and to clarify, I am using this as a beater. I don't baby watches.

+Sapphire crystal
+Milled folding part of the clasp
+3D looking dial
+Sunburst dial
+power reserve meter
+Date only
+Decorated movement (just go look up Orient Star Classic, the movement is pretty much the same but updated for 50hour reserve. too lazy to dig mine out).

-... there are no minuses.

I've seen the Orient Star IRL and it looks much nicer than on photos.
But I'd rather wear a SARB035 (which you could get for $275 brand new just a few years ago).

The SARB035 was the last good budget Seiko IMHO, but now I'd have to say that Orient Star took its place.

I too have a few Seiko and Orients, and IMHO the Orient Stars are usually a notch above the Seiko SARB line at least. Their equivalent would be the current Presage line, with the OS being more affordable and having their signature power reserve indicator on almost everything. Also some models have zero equivalent in the Seiko lineup like the Retrograde or the World Timer..
I am strongly considering getting one of the newer OS Titanium (like the darker one with blue accents), or that blue/cyan faced open heart limited edition (cant access the photos here but i'll post later if asked)

Aye the newer Presage "baby snowflake" dials are truly amazing. Still the Orient Star are a good competitor in their own way for a lesser price... OS are more specialized in those complications like small seconds, power reserve, retrograde... and the open hearts / skeletons, all of which you dont get so much (or at all) with the Seiko Presage line. I think they have their own charm,  plus like Seiko they are entirely made in-house.
And yeah the new ceramic dial Presage is also very nice, so are the enamel and urushi laquer dials..

It looks much more expensive than it is in person. Orient Star + Royal Orients are cat's meow for me @ dressy watches. Definitely prefer it more than the Seiko/Grand Seiko cousins.

Edit: I do find the Orient Star's finishing really is a cut above the Seiko, even at 1/2 the price. Not that Seikos are shabby, just Orient really do put in the attention to detail better than Seiko. (Also better regulated *ahem*)

I know what you mean - I had the same thoughts but tried it on in person and fell in love with it.  I have average-to-small wrists (6.75") and I think it wears perfectly.  The lug-to-lug is rather long since the lugs are enormous, so if you're someone who typically wears ~36mm watches it will be way too large.  But, if you tend to wear 38" I do recommend trying it on if there's an AD around you.

My Christopher Ward C65 Trident GMT. I try to wear it as much as possible as it was a gift from my wife but sadly I work in construction and this wouldn’t last a day. So during the work hours I wear a series 3 apple watch.
