Why does it have such good printing, but Daytona fakes have shitty blurry 2D shit.
>>
>>14471011
It's not good printing, it's the biggest tell in my opinion. It's a few shades too dark and flat rather than raised, very obvious in person when the two are side by side.
>>
>>14471021
Oh shit, so it's the same issue then? Looks perfectly fine in that pic to me.

What if you got the original dial, how much is it?

Daytona's is.... 1.5k

if you genuinely like the watch, wear it and don't worry about it. If you don't love it, sell it and buy and several watches you do like and keep the left over cash.

I really love my Barknand Jack NATO bit imega sellntje best NATOs in the world if you want to spend.

With rubber, is go with a waffle style, vintage one as it dresses it down even more. The Rolex ones looks pretty classy and expensive still. Or google zulu diver.
>>
>>14472178
Why would you want a field watch beater and a beater chrono when you already have a g-shock? Just get a diver, a fancy chrono and a rolex op, use the g-shock as a beater that's what it's for.

I can’t type. Omega make the best NATOs.
>>
>>
>>14472366
>Why would you want a field watch beater and a beater chrono when you already have a g-shock?
Because it's embarrassing for an adult to be seen with a g-shock in public, unless it's specifically a rough setting like paintball or dirt biking or some shit like that.
>>
>>14472371

Yes, that's what beaters are for. In everyday life you can wear one of your expensive watches.

Prices are all over the map, there's a lot of people trying to sell the same model I just bought for $800+. I've only ever seen a few stainless/black dial models for sale, though, so I'd jump on the next one you see that isn't crazy overpriced. I plan on buying a stainless/blue dial model if I like the gold one because they're very attractive watches and they're only getting rarer

Why not just get a replica daydate at this point?

>>14472448
Bulova is owned by the nips thougg
>>
>>14472439
Because I find 80s Bulovas charming, even outside of their status as a daydate homage. I can't quite explain it. I like that the tuning fork logo is prominent.

>>
>>14472459
Like it or not, that watch is a fake daydate.
>>
>>14472464
It's a daydate rip-off but it's not a "fake." It's design may pretend to be a Rolex, but the watch itself is not trying to hide that it's a Bulova and neither would I. I don't know, I like them for what they are, they're affordable, and I don't feel bad about wearing them.

This shit is why I am buying an IWC tourbillon replica. The tourbillon is real. Its a really close replica. The real watch is 50k.

Look at completed and sold listings on eBay. use advanced search, its in there.

Also a lot of scams on eBay that newbies can fall for.

I suggest you look at chrono24 instead until you get a rough feel for the prices of things.

then once you've done that come to the dark side and buy a AAA+ super replica of a Rolex Oyster Perpetual for $700

PS regarding watches I think I will just wear a bright orange casio for now, then buy a patek phillipe for around 6k when I can be arsed

No. its a ladies watch.

either join dark side or if you want a genuine swiss watch for around 1k I got some recommenadtions . But no normie will have heard of the brands and neither will watch enthusiasts. But they are solid nice looking swiss watches.

Its not two genuine. One is honestly a rep. Its most of the most accurate reps ever made

>>14473720
If you 'dont care for brands' then why do you need a patek or rolex? Come on now.

Some of us just want great bang for our buck.

I am buying a $700 replica tourbillon IWC right now. Its a *real* tourbillon. It looks just like the real watch (a 50k watch). I want a real tourbillon but they are all 30k-50k with one exception by hublot at 10k which looks ugly.

Many of the rolexs and pateks you see at the low end of pricing (5k) might be franken watches or partly reps or modified or cleaned. You will not be getting true authenticity unless you go to a dealer. Then the minute you buy the watch it loses 20% of its value in most cases (with only a FEW noticeable exceptions, and even those exceptions are lies as you have to pay for duds before you get those exceptions)
>>
>>14473727

$700 is LESS than the depreciation of a genuine Rolex Oyster Perpetual watch you will experience in the 10 seconds you buy it and walk out of the Approved Dealer. Really makes you think!

>>14473767

That app is Huawei Health app and you need a compatible smart watch / fitness tracker.

These accurate sleep trackers come with fitness trackers / smart watches. There's also now a ring called an oura ring that people are trying.

I use the honor magic watch. Its $100 on aliexpress. Some people use Garmin/Polar but I am really impressed by this honor magic watch. Its got a 5 day battery, takes 1 hour to charge fully, really nice screen and features. And importantly its small enough as many alternatives are really large on the wrist.

They don't actually wear that big lug-to-lug if you use a different strap. The springbar sits pretty close to the case, so using something with a thinner profile like a bonetto cinturini, a tropic or a nato would make the case conform to a medium-sized wrist no problem.

The 53 case is more reminiscent of the 62MAS, and like that vintage vibe. It's a 200m diver that almost has all-rounder qualities because of that shape.

Then again, the 63 shares a vibe with the Marine Master, and looks great as well. I think they both come with Diashield and Sapphire, so they should both be quite indestructible.

I can't think of any watch that is 300m water resistant and bauhaus and light and subtle.

In fact, the only 300m watch that comes to mind as somewhat bauhaus-like is the Longines Legend Diver. But it isn't exactly light. It also costs over a thousand.

This said, I think Walter Gropius would have enjoyed the G-Shock in pic related. That one is light and cheap and water resistant enough.
