unless youre getting that one, get a rolex.

>If you want a steel chrono on a bracelet you’re stuck with a Speedy or a Grand Seiko (but their chrono designs are hideous IMO). A Speedmaster is not a good “single watch” either. Hesalite gets scratched if you look at it wrong, virtually no water resistance, and it’s manual wind.
Obviously I'd get the sapphire version, but the other two factors are worrying.
>Why not look at a nice Rolex Explorer I or Explorer II? The Explorer I is the perfect single watch IMO. Good size, can be dressed up or down, timeless simple design and rugged as hell. Explorer II is much more sporty but you’ll get a nice GMT complication and a cool look if you go for the white dial.

I'm starting to get increasingly disillusioned by the watch world - so very few models that tick all the boxes. So I want to ask you guys, could you please name your favorite model design-wise. Just the perfect watch looks-wise. Try not to err on the side of perceived brand value or retarded larps like "in-house movement" that much. But respectable watches nonetheless, something a man would wear.

Currently trying out a "vintage tropic 2.0" with a Casio W-216H. The black is a little light after a couple weeks of use, compared to the duplicate I haven't worn, but this might be due to showering with the watch. The strap would probably look better on a watch that isn't "rugged-styled" like this. I would also like to note that the taper is pretty aggressive, going from 18mm to 14mm at the buckle (over 68mm), and tapering down to 10mm at the other free end of the strap (over 118mm).

As far as construction goes, I think the pin on the buckle misaligns too easily, but the rubber itself is fine. If it fails, it'll probably crack at the watch lugs first.

You might be surprised about what you learn bout ol Bill here sonny jim. As my father used to say "someone who keeps looking back at the past never sees what's in front of him"

I like all kinds of watches, and nobody should be discriminated against for what they like. I hope you continue to wear the ones you have in good health, son.

Hi there! Worry not friend, all is well. You know ol' Billy Bob, always keeps his coffers full so he doesn't have to worry! thanks for the concern!!

Archie says that to cope with your extremely bad decisions in life it's mandatory to get into credit card debt in order to purchase a Rowwwlex. Yet he isn't happy with just a Rowlex, and now has around twelve luxury watches from different brands. And considering a Grand Seiko for his next purchase. And he also says that the whole Archie Luxury character is a parody of someone with bad taste trying to project their sense of self-worth onto these uncomfortable hunks of metal. Are the ladyboys also part of the parody? I can't tell. But I would advise you not to model your life according to any of these ridiculous horology youtubers. They all come off as sickly bumbling imbeciles.

>>
>>14558055
Wow. There's the central seconds model for under 1000€, for those who don't place additional value on that Unitas movement.
>>14558045
I've been thinking about a Marine to complement my Stowa Flieger, as the dressier counterpart. All in all, I'm really happy with the razor sharp finishing of the case, dial and hands on the flieger, it really is worth its price. I just can't decide on the model of Marine. Central seconds is beautiful because of the big flame blued seconds hand, but the Unitas is a classic and the small seconds is a different, more classic look. I can't help you decide, as I'm on the fence myself. Now, if the Unitas-version was close in price, I'd take that one. And also, if they brought back an enamel dial version with a red 12, like one of the limited editions back in the day, I'd be all over that. Fucking fantastic, that one.
>>
>>14558097
Personally I would take the one without the subdial as I dislike them, but these plain retro fliegers aren't that good looking to me in general, so I'm not exactly someone to speak on the matter in the first place, I have no idea what you'd even wear that with except a steampunk three piece suit and goggles.

I don't know, it just looks like you'd have to wear it with fancy clothes of the type that another dressier watch would look better with.

Divers go with any sporty or outdoorsy outfit as well as pretty much everything else though, since their design is practically synonymous with "modern watch", whereas flieger is an "oldtimey watch" if you get what I'm trying to say.

There is no such thing as a modern watch. The technology, the designs, they are all obsolete. All of them are worn as an homage to a different era. Some may be more old-timey than others because of changing trends,but look at how bauhaus and vintage divers made a strong comeback in the recent years. It's all subjective.

Does anyone even make handsome quartz watches? I know the big swiss brands had some, but their prices were/are still steep.

Bauhaus style is my favourite, I love the max bill junghans.
I also love the grand Seiko 9943 (one of these with the Japanese day of the week would be my dream cop desu I'm just dumb and can't justify that much on an old watch).

No problem with quartz but I'm a fan of the way a mechanical second hand moves so I'd prefer it unless I'm losing a lot of quality elsewhere for that.

Really though I need something that I can wear somewhat casually but wouldn't look out of place in a somewhat formal setting (I work for an events company and a lot of our stuff is black tie)

Thanks friends

A couple months ago you would find interesting content in these threads at least once a day, now it's like once in 2weeks. These days I usually just open the thread and scroll through it when it hits bump limit.
I don't understand how you can post the same fucking shit every single fucking thread and manage to enjoy it. Do you all fucking have alzheimers? Do you forget what you posted 2 hours ago for god's sake
I hate this tudorfaggot making these stupid threads and posting his fucking replica mixed with low quality bait, I also hate the other two or three of you for being a fedora reddit monglers, animeposters, even that anime hating underage faggot who occasionally shits up the thread posting dumb shit completely unrelated, and those who feel the need to remind us that they are epic "normies" and describe how their gf looks like every day while posting a dozen pictures of their mall watches.

The 44mm advertised measurement does not include the crown guard, which adds between 5 and 6 extra mm. This means there are 3 options:
1. He is Andre the Giant sized
2. He is wearing a small Panerai (extremely unlikely because they’re significantly more expensive)
3. It’s fake (extremely likely)

>>14559147

If you have to go for something similar and still being under 1k you have to sacrifice the watch being automatic for sure.

>Bulova Lunar Pilot
>Certina DS-2 Chronograph Flyback
>Seiko SSB031
>Seiko SBPY119
>Seiko SSB097

That being said, I don't particularly like any of the watches I just said. If this is your first watch and you want to get into watches buy something innocuous, something plain and simple that looks good, it's well made (for its price) and can be dressed up and down.

Look up Tissot, Hamilton, Seiko, Orient, Certina or maybe look into some microbrands but tread carefully.
