Titanium case, weighs 24 grams

Verdict : it overpriced shit

That's a 300$ vise. The molds have to be retired, the casting is damaged. Bergeon is becoming lazy.

The Bergeon vise is THE better vise. It's the original watchmaker's vise with a quick release system that has copied by a couple of companies. Older Bergeon 2021 vises look better, they're just really slipping up on the quality.

Is this a good worldtimer/gmt in the sub 5k range?

I know
>nomos
but I think this one is actually not bad.

I would be wearing it casually and almost daily.

>>14337533
Yea, classic don't become dated, what's so hard to understand

>caring about resale value

literally keking at my keyboard at u right now.
>>
>>14337775
There are decent grey market listings for this one. Around 4k when it retails for 6.

I'm also cant afford many watches with good resale value so I dont care too much, I'd prefer to like it and keep it for a while.

Any comments on the actual watch?

Well with that mindset no wonder you're looking at Nomos and not a Rolex GMT. Buy the nomos, in 10 years time it will be worth £1500, not very Luxury....Rolex GMT in 10?... you think its cool not to careing about resale. Fine waste you're money and be forever be middleclass.

>>14337786

White hand on a white dial, come on. I give you 2 weeks and you'll hate wearing it. Put it in a drawn, put you're seiko back on and sell it for a 2k lost
>>
>>14337776
His point isn't so much about resale value as it is about getting the watch at a better price.
>>
>caring about resale

shit it must be hard to buy a car for a lot of you if you're hellbent on reselling it.
>>
>>14337786
Errrr 4k I'd buy any omega gmt. I wouldn't want to explain who nomos is all the time.
>>
>>14337789
If I cared about my resale value I would invest the money instead. What does the value matter to me if I keep it?

>>14337793
There's a blue dial version and also a limited edition white with blue hands that looks the best. But its limited.

Guess I'll just look around more.
>>
>>14337800
You are being trolled by the resident /wt/ trolls. That Nomos is fine.

>>14337803
Black Bay GMT
Planet Ocean GMT Used
Aqua Terra GMT Used
Rolex Explorer 2 Used white or black dail

All better than Nomos
>>
>>14337768
Honestly sounds like you first good watch. I'd go with a Rolex OP or something you can daily. Also nomos movements are sort of fragile.

My car is 13 years old. Why do people insist on debt slavery? They finance a car, have it for a few years and then trade it in for something newer, then have it for a few years and then something newer again. It's a constant state of owing money.

Anyway, get a watch and love it. Don't worry about reselling it

No no, life is excellent; I'm passionate about my work, and my work makes me happy. It's just that at the end of a productive day, I don't spend as much time admiring my watches as I did when I was working less. So, it's a tradeoff: I work a lot now, I can afford watches I want now, but I don't have the time or energy to enjoy them when I was working less and couldn't afford as much. However I'll consider your advice about not wearing one for a while, to see what happens. Though in truth, I use the date of the Seamaster a lot...

>>14336963
>>14336981
I do, though it's not my primary. The Suunto is my primary, the Seamaster is my secondary. There are lots of people who use Rolexes to dive with, but again, as a secondary, not a primary.

>>14337183
No, but we attach meaning to them because of what we've been through with them and the memories we have to them. They're like musical instruments...or cars.

>>14337206
Yes, that's why my next will probably be one from 1967. The perfect chronograph.

>>14337978
No. Their internal engineering is excellent, their movements easy to service, and their holding value better than most. They mass-manufacture watches at a higher quality than anyone else in the world. Re-read that sentence carefully before responding.

>>14337979
No. Omegas don't hold their resale value unless they are historically significant (Speedy Cal. 321, Original Ploprof, etc.). Other than that, they drop like most modern watches.
>>
>>14337970
>>14338054

As stated buy omega used, get a good ish price, you'll not lose money, will hold better than Nomos anyway. Rolex, AP, Pat, VC will hold better ofcourse but a used omega is the most watch u can get for 4k ish

The seller's an "authorized dealer" and has hundreds of positive reviews on the actual site, can't find anything about them anywhere else though, and I've read not to really trust the certification on the site.

The escrow thing seems promising though, the fact that they don't get payment until I actually get/accept the item? Any experience with this? How long do I usually have to "accept" it, is it something I have to discuss with the seller?

Thanks for all the help guys, I think I'm going to get the white dialed AT.

I'm really torn because I like the rubber strap with its orange accents, but I understand bands are more ubiquitous. Maybe I'll buy the strap separately.

I'm looking at some new/unworn listings on the grey market, looks like I can get for 3.5k. Let me know if I'm making a mistake.

>Chrono24 is better
Chrono24 is basically as unsafe as Ebay is, but worse since they charge more to advertise on there and as a result the watches tend to be more expensive.

I've bought from both, and just make sure you do your research and KNOW exactly what your specific reference should/could have. Also don't be afraid of asking for movement pics etc (if it's a jeweller or watch shop they should be able to show you, if not pass).

As you said though, BUY THE SELLER then the watch. There's a difference between a bargain/good deal and too good to be true.

Yea Zenith is probably above Omega as far finishing but not in history, yet zenith have a great history. Zeniths are at a far higher price point on average, let's be honest, they are all about the el primo and it's a far higher price point than a speedy (retail).

They whore that el primo out just as much as the speedy but no one cares because know one knows who Zenith is.

>>14338611

GS make great watch but all there models are to thick and a little dated looking. They offer the same design style in there 5k watchs as their seiko $400 watch. Yes they have very nice finishing. After owning a few you will realise their watchs are just to thick vs the rolex and omega.

Sekio fucking fanboy, GS this and GS that and have never owned one or only even owned a GS.

How much can you charge for something with a cheap black and white painted dial a "good enough" movement a case that takes on water if you look at it funny?

I said they are above Omega but they cost like x2 as much. What hard to understand.

Omg it's got better specs than a speedy, only cost another 4k wow how do they do it?

do research yourself, it's not hard to find
for example he once pretended he was in a villa he owned in italy or some shit. someone looks it up and finds out its in his mother's name. he says that his mother is dead (she isn't) and she left it to him. people call him out again and the video is deleted
a more recent example is when he disappeared at the start of the year. it came out he was stealing people's watch photos on youtube and using them in his videos with his watermark over the top. the owners contact him, ask if he can give them credit in the description. he refuses and gets hit with a copyright ban. this is all over the internet, everyone knows why he hasn't posted for three months. he comes back and says he stopped posting because he was at the side stroking the hand of a dying family member

Maybe I should have been more clear, I didn't realise the GS autisms were here. I said a number of time now yea okay Zenith is above Omega but then you started shifting on speedmaster for not being as good as a watch that costs more, co e the fuck on, read back what I said.

And honesty know one knows who the fuck Zenith is theres no prestige with them. You have to explain oh there are on Rolex level every fucking time. They spent the last 20 year in a pit somewhere. People know Omega it goes a long way, enjoy your skx and oversized GS if you can ever afford one.

It looks very very nice. The price is a bit steep for a quartz, 180$. On the other hand there is no other watch like this currently on the market.

Just saw it on their website, i love the small size and the domed glass. The colors are great and the proportions very nice. Thank fuck they did not have chrome around the indices and didn't du this faggy mercedes hand.
Timex really upped their game with their designs recently.

Are there any good watches below 2-3k that don't just leave you with "I should've bought the 2-5k version instead"? I just want to buy one watch and forget about the whole dumb "hobby" since it's a massive money sink.

I just want something outdoorsy/army that preferably has a chrono that I can wear with casual clothes and motorcycle gear since I don't even have a suit, but not a "training watch" or a "toy watch" like a Seiko or a GShock because I'm 30+.

I got the perfect one for you. Take a look at the MWC site to find the perfect one for you. I git the desert edition one for 42€ but with a black strap, the beige strap is harder to find in europe, but they are sold more in japan.

Super comfy little field watch, domed plastic lookes awesome and the coating held up so far with no problems, keeps time well, so the movement is not utter shit. But it's only a 35mm dial, maybe it will be a problem for you.
