Already got rid of the green semi working LM special and the black resin block. And my consideration is between a used black NY0040, brand new Orient GMT or a cheap Poljot automatic.

Well, assuming were going by the 2k euroshekels budget i'd get one of the newer 240 or perhaps a more traditional/Military styled chronograph like the 144 St Sa.

Also, pic related for said Orient GMT. I'd love to invest in decent chronograph as well, but for the next two years or so beaters is all i can wear.

Liam Moore

A SKX007 mememaster.

They use Vostok movements that are better regulate and less prone to QC issues in interesting designs that are either modern, vintage esque or fashion tier with "historical" names.

Also they use Seiko movements, particularly being the first to use the SII NE88 movement.

Anyone happen to know some good shops in Vancouver?

Looks wise, I'm interested in SRP315, SRP581K1 and SRP311J1

Nathaniel Jackson

As much as I like looking at it, they screwed up the steppings. Or rather: It would really grind my oats if I were to spend a few thousand bucks on it.

I mean the fact that Berlin sits at the 0:30 mark but is in fact 1 hour ahead of London. They didn't screw up, but the radial distance on the watch doesn't mesh with the difference in timezone.

Nathan Walker
Nathan Walker

Was poorer quality
No it was not. Don't get your facts for YT and documentarist television. The Soviets were way ahead of the Germans in metallurgy, mostly because of the American technological boost they got in the 30's. They could mass produce cast armor, superior electroslag welding allowed use of heavily sloped armor, superior diesel engines (the Germans never got diesel to work on anything armored), superior tank suspensions, not to mention higher production runs of almost everything.

TL;DR: Soviet steel was better than anything the germans could come up with. The Germans had the advantage in radios and optics.

Seiko is the best meme I've fallen for. Absolutely beautiful and it might as well be a Quartz movement in terms of accuracy.

P.D It was almost the same price as an SKX on Ebay and it has hacking and HW, before you say anything.

The lume looks like precisely applied drops of semen. However, I wouldn't have gotten the gold color unless I was 40+ years old.

Jonathan Garcia
Jonathan Garcia

I'll spell it out for you
It's a very specific movement
An independent without schematics WILL fuck something up, and then your Seiko service will go from 300 to 600+
That's assuming he can even get to the fucking movement anyway
You don't know anything, stop regurgitating /wt/ memes without understanding them you dumb fuck.

Having Tissot service your shitty 2824 and overpaying is stupid, not having Seiko service your GS movement in a monoblock case is even more stupid.

This hobby isn't for you bud
Seiko's lume compound isn't as good as luminova on its own, but when piled up really high like that it shines like a torch.
Notice that a sub will have similar or better lume than a Seiko will a thinner layer of compound. Still, it's great that you can get swiss quality lume for so cheap.
Orient is excellent with this as well. Really have my eyes on a Ray II

Levi Stewart
Levi Stewart

It's a very specific movement
without schematics
It's a Swiss lever-escapement three-hander, with central second hand, date and an automatic complication. Like every other fucking dive watch.

Unscrew the left-hand threaded crystal retainer ring. Boom, you're done.

Thinking about getting a smartwatch.
Had a garmin vivosmart till now.

My main reasons for a smartwatch are not those meme tracking features but simple notifications of incoming calls and alarms. I guess I'm too much of an autist to feel my smartphone vibrating in my pocket or having volume turned on.

Also battery life should be very good.

Found these:

Cogito Classic

Steinharts making a chrono thats a speedmaster/daytona homage.

Do you think it will be an OVM succes story?

Andrew Gutierrez
Andrew Gutierrez

Depends.
New Daytona, or classic?

The dome looks fairly solid, bracelet seems similar if not identical in construction to the OVM, so that's solid in itself.

Though, frankly, it all looks to sit a bit high, if they managed to slim it down a little, so the tach ring sat flush with the case top, and the dome was shallower, sitting flush with the tach ring again, then I think we'd see some success.

Anthony Stewart
Anthony Stewart

Probably daytona homage based on the cased but you really never know with cases Steinahrt has made before, might be packing a speedy dial. But the case looks like a daytona one and so the bezel.

William Ross

It will use a 7750 valjoux which is a fuck huge movement, it will sit high. Classic obviously if you look at and the giant dome

It's a quartz movement, it's a nato strap and the design is underwhelming.

James Brown

7750 valjoux

I assumed it would be some, while not cheap ass, but not exactly, decent quartz chrono movement. But that's quite pleasantly surprising that they're going auto.

Although you do have a point. The bracelet is pretty much make or break on the aquis because of the lugs.

are Tissot worth it?

Luke Lopez
Luke Lopez

Not really, at least I don't like them.

They're so tasteless these days, and it begins with the logo on every watch. The ugly font, and contemporary styling, combined with the year of Tissot's founding.

Tissot didn't used to put "1853" on every watch, in fact they put it on ZERO watches until recently. It's inclusion is not an aged Tissot tradition, and hence runs entirely counter to what it tries to imply.

And on the styling front, let's take the watch you posted as an illustration of just how small the imagination of the designers must be. What in fuck's name do those grey, textured shapes adorning 48 of the 60 minute indices do? Why on Earth are they there?

Modern Tissot, in my opinion, is a disaster. They made very few watches worth considering.

William Gomez

They are both in the "watches you should buy" not in the same quality category. FFS you guys should work on your reading comprehension.

Like I've said, this meme is not mine, cunt.

Eli Garcia

Not exatly I guess, the older Tudors were actually made by rolex except the movement. Newer ones have the same quality as Rolex ones but dont think they are made at the same plant if I remember correctly, but Tudor also now has inhouse movements so the prestige in WiS circles should be the same since Tudor movements are high quality (but fat)

I've been eyeing the gear S3 since it was announced, 4 odd days battery life, meters out the ass and IP68. Tizen is the only real drawback from what I've seen, but for me personally it isn't really an issue, dont plan on tinkering with the software. No hard date or price yet, estimated to be around £250-300 and the end of octoberish.

Fuck Tissot, but if the movement is jeweled and lubed it should last for decades man.
Quartz movements don't exactly need servicing like mechanicals do.

Nathaniel Gray

You hit the nail on the head. They're just as good as any other high end luxury watch for the most part. Amazing craftsmanship and quality. Only downsides are IMO it carries the Seiko name and most of their designs are dull (totally subjective obviously)

Jaxon Green

They heavily modify the 7750, so its cool until you need to service it.
Also the only unique chrono they make is their pulsometer.

I would have thought dual time zones and a GMT hand would be a minimum but mane lack both,

Jacob Thompson

Sadly, there are quite a few watches with lovely face design that look splendid straight on. Yet from the side they are practically chimneys. Like pic. related. It is like a toad on your wrist.

Sebastian Williams

Really, many things which aren't "pilot" watches could be effective as them.

The only special complication I'd want, were I a pilot, is a GMT hand to set to UTC.

Why do people still try yo categorize a whole universe of watches by ranking the brands??
Honestly, this is useless.

These are IMO sound design principles that watch designers should pay more attention to. And that means readability both during the day as well as during the night. For instance I know of no watches that are lumed to make date readable in darkness.

Photo-lithographically defined and dry etched refractory parts should have been standard by now about would eliminate much of the re-balancing and magnetism issues. The technology is about 40 years old.

The only special complication I'd want, were I a pilot, is a GMT hand to set to UTC.
We seem to be on the same wavelength here.

Sebastian Cook

Yeah, it was genuinely painful to wear. It even fucked up the balance of my arm, as I tend to bend my arm to the inside when walking.

Shill son.

It's an extremely reliable movement. I abuse it a lot, as it is a true beater for me and haven't had any problems with it for almost ten years now. If you buy it wear it in confidence.

Hi there!

You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of Cred Forums are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!

Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!

(The answer is transparent dials. See: Lange Lumen)

Well, even with a regular dial the current day would be just as charged as anything else on the dial. It would just be when the day switches that you'd be lacking.

No one even recognizes a Sub without the crown and "ROLEX". You can put a Rolex logo on a 090 Amphibia and people will believe it.

Source: people regularly bring in $3 chinkshit with Omega and Rolex on the dial, ten times worse than any poo2loo curry watch seriously asking if it's real.

Noah Robinson

Depends.

Some do because they're idiots.

Others because, why not, it's a cheap throwaway watch.

Owner of a toyshop in the town where I work owns several nice watches, A '91 sub, an '08 GMT, and a Tag HueHue AquaRacer.

When in Thailand, he grabbed a back-street copy of the Tag, just so he could wear it without worry of losing or damaging it.

Only real problem is after midnight when the display in the apertures change over. Many possibilities:
- uncover also tomorrows fields to allow for recharge
- cover in something that only passes blue/UV to charge lume - more complicated but far tidier
- illuminate with tritium, for illumination and/or charging lume.

Julian Peterson

I had people coming into the sotre I worked at with fake watches all the time. Still they bought expensive shit at the store, but nothing in luxury watch range though. Loled my ass off since they were real shitty knock offs that I would expect nobody would assume is real. Guess nonwatch people are that retarded, but what it really is, nobody gives a shit about a watch.

Andrew James
Andrew James

The truth is once it's got normal wear it becomes harder to tell a real and a fake apart. A few weeks ago a 90's Submariner came in for service and my watchmaker sensei wrote it up as a rep (we do this by default though, every Rolex, Omega, TAG, Breitling, etc. that comes in is automatically considered a rep unless proven otherwise), only after opening it did it turn out to be genuine. Only by being a bit worn, with hairline scratches from regular wear it fooled us. So I don't see the how the opposite can't happen either, a really old rep being mistaken as a genuine vintage piece at first.

It's not an advancement since it is highly unrelaible and requires very regular service, this is what the mountain jews want you to believe. It has to do with that the watch movement requires extremely precise oiling or it will fail, no regular watchmaker can service an co-axial
