>>14001613daytona or submariner lads?
>>14001621Hard to choose between two reds, a 6263 or a 1680.
>>14001621submariner if you want to fit in at the watercooler
>>14001621Daytona is a meme chronographGet a Sub and a Speedy Man on the fucking Moon
Should’ve made this a vintage edition. Here’s a vintage Aquanaut, ref. 5065.
>>14001649These were very good value (relatively) even a few years ago. That was until everyone went crazy for steel sports watches.
>>14001613For me, it's the Rolex Submariner refernece 116610LV "Hulk".

One of my better vintage purchases IMO.
if you see a guy wearing a shitty fashion quartz what does it do to your opinion of him?
What is everyone looking forward to from SIHH this year?
>>14001747Depends if it's ugly or not. 99% of people aren't watch nerds and simply buy watches for fashion reasons.
>>14001747"This person doesn't care to research what a good watch, even at that price point, would be" is about it, really.
What do you guys think of picrel?
>>14001747same opinion i get when i someone wearing a swatchhe thinks a watch is no better than a fancy bracelet
>>14001788Wrong pic>>14001747You could turn that person into a friend, maybe he’d like to get into watches but was misguided by fashion watch adverts.
>>14001802I think the bracelet is nice. Very reminiscent of the RO. The open worked dial version looks like a car’s rim though.
>>14001649>date window is not all the way to the right so that numbers are in a rowThat's a slap straight to the goys face. But they will eat up any shit as long as pateks (((marketing))) makes them seem rare.
>>14001898shut up /pol/faggotyou cant afford it
>>14001898Careful anon. You don't want everyone realising you're both poor and an idiot.
>>14001682How much was it? That looks really nice, I like Polerouters and Universal chronos.
>>14001962$2.2k but that also includes a recent service and full set.
>>14001613Seriously people that wear watches are mentally retarted just look at your phone lmao
>>14001991Thanks for contributing. See you again in the next thread.
90% for 100$ or 100% for 20000$?
>>14002035If you think that's 90% you are delusional.
>>14001802>>14001814I actually really like this Zenith but for only a little more you could get a Rolex with ajubilee bracelet
>>14001802I just wish zenith would make one of these in <=39mm with the new silicon oscillator & a non skeleton dial.
whats your opinion on homages vs replicas?
>>14002258>replicaYou mean fake. That said a watch that takes some design cues from another is far more respectable than a fake.
>>14002275what about the alpha explorer
What's a good first mechanical watch?
>>14002275I have fa fake royal oak A-series thin Edition. its been working flawlessly for 3 years now for $80
>>14002309Better than a fake at least.
>>14002331rolex explorer 14720
>>14002331anything seiko if youre a poorfagotherwise stick to your gshock and save up for a sub.
I bought this at roadside vendor today for $4thoughts? was it okay?
>>14002379At least you only wasted $4.
>>14002367Why pick a 14270 when a 114270 is upgraded and visually identical?
I cant fucking make up my mind.!blue dials or black dials? I wanted blue. but it seems too common.what's pleasing to look at? especially toward girls. I'm in a class that's mostly girls. women 70 females 5 males.
>>14002691if you wear more muted colors go black. if you wear more colors go blue
>>14002691Depends on the overall design, but typically blue stands out more, pic related.The white dial yachtmater is known for being a typical gold digger magnet though.
>>14001912And neither can you or your wifes son. >>14001922Explain why criticizing a bad design choice is dumb, go on, goyem.
Ok /wt/ you're forced to pick a bambino, which version do you get? Personally I would pick a version 4.
>>14002892Finally some relateable question instead of the same silly söys, sucking swiss shitters. I'd get the 5th gen, small seconds in gold. If they made them without a date i'd love it even more.
>>14002918The 2nd gen has also some amazing ones, i like this one. Also read that orient produces their movements in-house. If orient were swiss, their watches would be priced at 1k and more. And the marketing would be super gay about the in-house thing and praise it like the second coming of christ and demand even more money for it.
What color strap to put on Blue Moon? Please help
Someone had talked about an elastic (I think zulu) strap like two days ago in the thread. Anyone know which one he was talking about?
>>14002933>Also read that orient produces their movements in-house. If orient were swiss, their watches would be priced at 1k and more. And the marketing would be super gay about the in-house thing and praise it like the second coming of christ and demand even more money for it.Orient's "in house" is really Seiko designs. Almost all of the orient calibers have a Seiko sibling.
Would you lads rather drop £2400 on a brand new BB58 or a Rolex 16030 from 1982?
>>14003050I'm honestly confused as to why I would care that it's a Swiss movement if it's a quartz. Why the fuck do mushroom brands make a big deal of having swiss quartz movements?
>>14003050>dead>rolex had a revenue of 4.7 billion usd in 2016Dont think so timothy
>>14003019Orient literally is Seiko...dumbass
>>14002379stick a mvmt sticker on the dial and sell it for 100 dollars
>>14003050I don't think theres anything that could make you look more of a basedboy cuck than 'swiss mov't' on the dial
>>14003055Depends. What is your style? Do you like vintage watches? The 16030 would be better in my opinion.
>>14003050No self respecting watchmaker would be using emojis. I guess Patek, Vacheron, Lange, AP, and etc. are all FINISHED!!!! because some dropshipping nigger who bought 100 moq said so.
>>14003055The BB58, no question. If it were a linen dial 1601 then that would be a more difficult choice.
>>14001621Seamaster 300 2018
>>14003019That's not a bad thing at all.
>>14001802this is why urban gentry hate is overrated albeit the memes are worth it
>>14001802what size wrist do i need to comfortably wear a bracelet like this/audemars piguet royal oak
New line by Audemars Piguet, the Code 11.59! What do you think?
>>14003575Wait, this is their big announcement? They all look like mediocre shit, the kind of chinese crap YouTubers keep trying to shill.
>>14003575They look like chinkshit.
>>14003055the rolex is more appealing imo>>14003575just make more royal oaksthese look like shit
>>14003674>>14003756>>14003764I agree with you, they all have milquetoast faces. The three-piece construction case and the „double dome” dial is interesting. They’re all using three new calibres. I don’t really like the typography used for the numbers except for the caseback engravings.
>>14003779Caseback engravings + new movement.
>>14003784i agree, the back and case are much betterthe sideways date, the pointless numeral indication of sections and the font ruin the entire dial
>>14003784Excuse me, they’re calling it „double curved”. It’s curved from 12-6 vertically on the face and spherically dimes underneath.
What is the best micro brand?
>>14003795Here’s the white face. All the dials are lacquered, using about 8-12 layers. They had trouble with the „Audemars Piguet” on the dial and it took them „2 years to develop the technique”. They were having problems with it sinking into the lacquer and the thin lines of the letters disappearing. If you look at the applied logo, it looks enlarged and they had to do that because of the problems stated, my assumption is, to balance the entire face, they used thicker numbers. In turn, it cheapened the look of the watch.
>>14003575The dials look really cheap, not even at JLC level but priced the same as Vacheron. Yes the case and lugs are interesting but holy fuck those dials are terrible.
>>14003813I’m not into micro brands that much but I like what Halios is doing, specifically the Seaforth. >>14003827It definitely needs a redesign but I doubt they’d do anything. The white face is the best of the bunch. Here’s the video introduction and more information the Code 11.59 line:https://vimeo.com/310584685
I love this Datejust. The little flash of gold on the markers and hands is perfect. Classy but not gaudy. Trying to get the seller down to £1800...
What are your guys thoughts on single pass straps?
>>14003839someone said in the hodinkee forums that they looked like some armani shitterstook a look and they were spot on
>>14003863Correct, the dials are really disappointing. Everything else is great though.
I don't know shit about watches but I want one for some reason. A friend of mine recommended either a Seiko Series 5 or an Orient Diver Ray II. Are they both shit? If they're good, which one is better?
Are watches by fashion brands (Tommy Hilfiger, Hugo Boss, Armani...) absolute trash? I'd imagine they are.
>>14003953What is your budget? Both are basic entry-level non-European watches.
>>14003946They're so bad it must be true.
>>14001624How does all the dirt get inside? If dirt gets inside, it can't be waterproof right?
>>14003956Chinese made watches with 0,50$ garbage Chinese movements prettied up with a fashion label’s name on the dial.
>>14003962Do you own a watch? Particles do get in when you adjust the time and unscrew the crown.
>>14003953Seiko is good.
>>14003958Preferably under $200 (Both of those are pretty cheap on Jomashop) but I can go up to $300. I'm a poor grad student.
>>14001747I actually noticed a guy I really respect was wearing a Daniel Wellington. I couldn't get myself to tell him he made a shitty purchase so I just gave a a half hearted compliment about how thin it isI wanna get him to grow his tastes, how do?
Can anyone please tell me is dhgate the best bet to get a tissot replica?
>>14003993The Junghans Max Bill Hand-Wound would be a great first watch. It comes in at 500€, a little pricier than your budget but at least it’s not a Seiko. German design, with a Swiss ETA movement. It’ll hold value, if you want to sell it you’ll get your money back, it looks nicer and something you can pass down.
>>14004006Wow anon, that's absolutely beautiful. I'll have to save for a bit to get it but that certainly seems like the right choice. What's the issue with Seiko?
>>14004004noif you are really set on a replica, which most people here would not recommend, check the rep forums and find which chinese seller is best then buy it directly from them. They will send you QC pics too
>>14004016Anyone you recommend? I like the PRC but I don't want to spend 600 dollars on one.
>>14004011It is. The domed crystal is really nice. Well, a Seiko, in this instance the Seiko 5, is an extremely basic, entry-level automatic mechanical watch. It’s like a Honda Civic. Cheap, gets you to point a-b, but it’s not that good-looking at all, and it’s a Japanese watch.
>>14004025The Max Bill is extremely versatile, you can wear it casually or dress it up. You can’t do this with a Seiko 5.
>>14004022That's the thing it's either going to be shit or you spend a very significant fraction of the price of the real one. You can get a used visodate for under $600
>>14004025What's wrong with stuff that is made in Japan?
>>14004029Is there a PRC quartz homage? I know this is sacrilege,but I don't like the lack of precision of automatic watches and the fact that the lower end don't have stopwatch and the dials are used for calendar.
The Max Bill Date, a little less Bauhaus. >>14004037I’m a snob. I don’t like Japanese watches, specially from a brand that tried to kill the art of watchmaking.
looking for a classic watchchronograph would be niceI live in central europe so I get the european brands a bit cheaperbudget 1000€should I even bother looking at that pricetag?
>>14003847I like 'em. Cleaner-looking and slightly lower profile than generic G10 ("NATO") style straps with their useless extra bit.
Hey /fa/, I received a Tissot quickster from my brother for Christmas. Is it an okay watch?
>>14002379the "1" must be the pricetag
>>14004046Actually, Seiko making the Swiss piss in their pants is the best thing about Seiko.
>>14004057you don't see successful people wearing seiko
>>14004040There's plenty for under $600. If you like it just get ithttps://www.chrono24.com/tissot/prc-200--mod1102.htm?man=tissot&modelId=1102&showpage=&sortorder=1
>>14003575Can we ban AP from the big three now?
>>14004046>calls other cheap while wearing a Max BillIts not a jap shitter but still
>>14004061Thanks for the link bro,but I am gonna be honest. I work in a law firm with a lot of brand snobs. I am very well paid,but they come from well off families so they wear branded everything. I just wanted to get a knockoff that can pass for a brand that I can afford like Tissot, I don't want to buy it.
>>14001613check this beauty out
>>14004075Calls others cheap where?
>>14004079Patek Philippe Calatrava it is. But seriously, a replica Tissot? Don’t bother. Go to Puretime.io and browse reps you like. Maybe get an IWC?
>>14003821The minute markers around the edge make it look shit too.
>>14004094That's the thing,I only get replicas of things I could realistically afford. I know that I can get a killer replica for 300 dollars,but no one is going to believe a 28 year old can afford this. That's why I am looking into replicas of Tissot and Longines. People would be suspicious of the young guy from legal wearing the same watch as the CEO.
New Bulbasaur video, you nasty cheap fuckers!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EP2bynqRHJE
>>14004049Classic? There’s something about vintage chronographs. Here’s a vintage Lemania on chrono24 for 1500€. Have a search look https://www.chrono24.com/search/index.htm?dosearch=true&maxAgeInDays=0&pageSize=60&priceFrom=0&priceTo=1500&query=Chronograph&redirectToSearchIndex=true&sortorder=15
>>14004049see >>14003959poljot strella, soviet space watchThis one was ~$600
Hey /wt/, I need your help to know if there exists a watch with a design I thought of.The dial would rotate counter clockwise, so the hour is always at the top, but the minutes hand would rotate clockwise, though slower to compensate. The minutes are the same as on a regular watch, but with a changing dial, so at 3 o clock, the minues would be at what would be 9 in another watch, at 8 when it's 4, etc.
>>14004125Sounds pretty fucking autistic
>>14004102Rep Nomos maybe? The Chinese that makes nice replicas don’t really bother with unpopular watches leaving you with terrible quality replicas for them. https://chazingtime04.co/shop-brands/nomos>>14004102
>>14004125Here, I drew it so it's easier to visualize.>>14004126We're talking about watches here.
>>14004132I appreciate your help man,I really do, you are great guy for giving all those links and information. It's just that I am trying to subtly blend in with those Patrick Batemans at work and I am only looking into brands that are famous here in balkans but not too famous like rolex or breitling. I am willing to bet cash money that none of them know about Nomos or Junghans,hell if I showed up with a genuine Vacheron,they would think it's some japanese brand.
>>14004143As far as I know, there are no watches out there with an entire dial that moves. It’s a pretty autistic idea and the fact that you drew it out too makes it even more so.
>>14004151Stuff like this exists, it's pretty similar. And drawing the watch took me like a minute.
>>14004147Something like an Omega then? There’s lower end Omegas, chazingtime has Longines too, look at the site and go through the brands, I’m not familiar with what’s recognisable in the Balkans
>>14004147If you really want to go for aliexpress or dhgate, check the reviews/feedback, they have photos
>>14004176Omega is definitely recognizable. Balkan is basic as fuck. These are the main brands of watches>longines>tissot>nautica>sector>designer watches (armani,lacoste,diesel)They all know about famous brands like rolex and breitling and if you think calling out someone is bad in the states,you haven't been called out in the balkans. Oh and,they scoff at casios and seikos even though they are great brands.>>14004181I have a few watches from aliexpress but the brandings are a turn off (chenxi,skmei, etc).
>>14004184Omega is spread out with their price points that a “non-hyped” model would be subtle enough. I don’t know what else to recommend to you
>>14004213No worries man,I appreciate the help.
>>14004004Replica Dogshit At the joke shop bro
>>14004037The only thing wrong with Japanese watches is that they don't usually have interesting styles. Mosr other complaints either also apply to the Swiss or are irrational.

>>14004521Post a close up of the dial big boy, you’re taking photos of it like a space observatory. It’s not a moon watch.
>>14003575I typically love dials with one or a few oversized numerals, but I hate these.
>>14004557what are you even talking about
>>14004496When your watch cost the same as your car
>>14004584Low iq detected. You’re teasing photos of your fake RM with faraway shots, a real owner would’ve posted a close up of the dial already but you can’t because you’d get called out.

In a couple paychecks time I'm planning on buying myself a Junkers 6072M-5 Series Bauhaus.Just Quartz because I honestly cannot be fucked with "muh Swiss" mechanautism.
>>14004843Most auto Junkers have Japanese Miyota movements.
>>14004855Yeah I still don't care. If I lived in an urban area and had some white collar jobs with prospects where I could get away with wearing the watch every day, I'd go automatic.As it is, I live rural, most of my work is outdoor blue collar shit where you really don't want to be wearing anything expensive, and I don't have a social life and spent practically all non-working hours indoors at home.So how tf can I justify paying what, twice the price, for a mechanism I can't even take advantage of or appreciate?The Quartz is goood enough. Looks after itself, and I can just whack it on when I'm dressing for special occasions, eg weddings.
is this a good watch?
>>14004923Yeah it's fucking awesome, stealthy as fuck.
>>14004929It looks like a poor man's SARB.
>>14004929It's a watch dude why are you asking the cunts on this board for advice, nobody but paranoid effays and spoilt trust fund kids actually give a fuck.
>>14004935I mean for example compared to the snk or skx
>>14004929I'm not sure I like the sunburst dial, haven't seen it in person though.
>>14004875everytime you look at it though you'll know you cheaped outsave a little more and get the proper one
>>14004974I'm not someone who cheaps out often, if I do it's because I honestly don't feel I'd benefit from the supposedly "better" option.
going for about $540 which is pretty steep but I'm considering pic relatedcop?
>>14005091it's alright but don't they have a version without the weird rusty camo effect on the face?
>>14005091Moldy dial. Get a >>14004028 instead
>>14005101they do. plain silver dial and it's actually significantly cheaper.I like the mido commander I too but they're hard to find
>>14005121I'd go with the plain silver. you might think the one you posted is "special", but you want something with longevity and versatility
>>14005132>>14005121here's the silver
AP really messed up with the Code 11.59. I photoshopped a slight fix for the dial. AP wanted an lacquered dial, the problem is, the lacquer layers made their applied logos sink into the lacquer, to counter-act this they „developed a technique for two years” which basically boils down to enlarging their logo. Now the logo is too big and the indices look too small and unbalanced, let’s enlarge everything else! They were too focused on the enamel dial that they forgot about nice design. Everything is too large and it really looks like a mall watch.
>>14005141I mean if you like it, go for it, I'm just not a huge fan of the colour options for the powermatic 80.
>>14005156I can go full autist and redo the markers and the sub dials but I don’t think it’s worth it. Is the 11.59 a butterface of the watch world?
>>14005156Even with your improvements it still looks like a Polaris.
>>14004843Damn, they make it in gold now.. looks very nice. Got mine a few years ago and put it on a comfy boomer bracelet. Looks mich nicer than the original leather bracelet. Do the same, get some nice gold or two tone stretchy bracelet, they are nice to wear but a bot annoying to adjust. Dont wear it to work, the domed glass gets micro scratches fast from clothing. >>14004974I got the eta auto and it does not matter at all. Would be equally happy with the quartz.This board is full of autistic, mechanical spergs, stop being one.>>14004988No anon, you need to get a mecha or else people will be foaming out of their mouths each time you post. Plz post it often.
>>14005170Maybe that’s the real reason why the AP text is so big. I’M NOT A JLC POLARIS! I AM AN AUDEMARS PIGUET!
>>14005172this is the exact one I've had my eye on. intended to get for specific outfits where I have other gold/brass accessories to match it with.I'll be sure to pop in routinely to express how happy and content I am with a quartz timepiece.
>>14005181>to express how happy and content I am with a quartz timepieceDon't you dare!
>>14005156WTF were AP thinking? I haven't seen a positive comment anywhere about the new collection except for the perpetual calendar which is okay. So of course it's limited to only 100 watches.
>>14005230The nicest one out of the bunch. Looking at the entire line, the Michael Kors look is all because of the lacquered dial. The sub-dials have an outer rim to them because you can’t have recessed sub-dials with an lacquered dial. The obnoxiously large text is because it kept sinking. I wonder why they forced it.
>>14005181fucking ugly watch with a fucking ugly logo
>>14005241All the lacquer work, the crystal, the case and new movements are all technically impressive. No denying that but they forgot about the most important part, the damn dial!No wonder they are getting such hate, they are all generic as fuck.
>>14005241>The sub-dials have an outer rim to them because you can’t have recessed sub-dials with an lacquered dial.Why not just make a multi part dial then? The sub seconds dial on a chronometre bleu is a separate piece, for example.
Is my Tuna /fa/?
Anybody know anything about Timex Marlin? Is it a good watch?
TFW you will never own a Grand Seiko
My current daily wear: Vostok Amphibia with a Zuludiver NATO strap and new Bezel. It's a really good daily beater; keeps the time well, is pretty unique and I'm not shitting myself about damaging it.A downside is it scrathes very easily, however those scrathches come off just as easily with some toothpaste and a micro-fibre wipe.
>>14005534>good watchthat is so vague and meaningless you boring milquetoast bastard
>>14005666is it better than seiko snk? hate the way the snk watches look. also, if you don't own it why are you even commenting, fuckface
>>14005674oh I get it, you are a retarded child. I am sorry for engaging you I'll stop now
>>14003065That's like saying Omega is Swatch. They're two differently organized companies under Seiko Group.
>>14005825Omega is Swatch.
>>14004929It has a solid but very utilitarian movement. Also I'm pretty sure all the 5's are non hacking/non hand winding. So if you're ok with that sure.
>>14005534It has a seagul movement which some people will tell you makes it a shitter, but it's fairly solid. If you like it go for it but honestly if I were you I would look at the Orient Bambino.
>>14004929I love everything about it except the case. It sits proudly and is too thick from my research back when I was obsessed with the SNXS.
>>14004967what is a sunburst dial?
>>14006104Hard to explain. Google sunburst dial or sunburst effect.. It's a visual effect where the light is reflected from the centre of the dial outwards like sunbeams. If you see an example this will immediate make sense. Without an example maybe not so much.
>>14006161Thanks for the reply brother.
Don't really know where else to ask, so let it be here.I bought an automatic Seiko for my grandfather at Christmas, but it seems to stop during the day or at night while he sleeps.Is there a way to keep it from stopping ?
>>14006169Your grandfather probably doesn't move much, or he doesn't wear the watch all day. Get him a quartz.
>>14006169>>14006206Would be kind of rude to replace a gift, maybe a night stand winder?
>>14006214Sure. That will fix it.
>>14004929The dial is exceptional for the price, looks just like a Rolex Oyster perpetual, the quality is good only marred by its affordable bracelet which you will replace with a leather one anyway.
>>14006206>>14006214That what I supposed, because I tried wearing it and it didn't stop.Wouldn't want to replace it, because he said to me that he really like the looks of it despite it stopping.Thanks you for the confirmation, and the suggestion.Can you guys recommend me a wind stand that isn't too expensive ?I'm broke at the moment.
I'm looking for an automatic with a Moon phase dial and preferably nothing else. Dial has to be easy to read with a nice typeface for the numbers. I'd love it to be comfy to look at, refined but not minimalist and definitely not gaudy and overly fancy with its look. Under $1000 would be ideal but I'm open to more, brands don't matter, I'm really just looking for quality. Thanks for the help anons :)
>>14006371Frederique Constant. Automatic, Swiss, and clean designs. A little bit more though at 2k+. Jomashop has small discounts on them but here’s the line https://frederiqueconstant.com/collections/manufacture/slimline-moonphase/
>>14006397This would be lovely if there was an option for arabic numbers. Too bad it's not available in Australia though
>>14006285They're all pretty expensive from what I know, can't help you on that sorry :/
Why do people who know nothing about watches always assume Rolex is garbage?
>>14006401Baume & Mercier. Swiss, Arabic numerals, gold and blued hands, calendar chronograph. There’s a brand new one on a steel bracelet up for sale for 1800$ put it on a nice strap and you’re golden. Oz oz oz oi oi oi
This is my grail. Currently have a Speedy MOTM and a few other seikos.
>>14006444Checked, will certainly put that on the list.
>>14006444Chrono24 is good. I doubt you’ll find this in Oz land at this price. If you want, you can call up ADs locally and see if they can order it for you, also sticker price isn’t always final price at ADs. https://www.chrono24.com/baumemercier/clifton-complete-calendar-moonphase-43mm-m0a10328-new-2018--id8403875.htm
>>14006430Because they can't afford one.
Spring bar recommendation lads? Need something reliable.
What watch fits best with a palewave/comfycore aesthetic bros? I wanna have a nice watch that doesn't glare out against my laidback fits
>>14006481You're right, that is super comfy
What do you guys think can you wear this with business casual? I am considering this as my first watch. Really like divers.
Shinola HQ insider here. please DO NOT buy our piece of shit timex copies. Shinola is purely a marketing scam. This company will be dead soon, trust me. AMA
>>14006459Always use fresh ones for each bracelet change, unelss you change them often then maybe once in a month. Buy from a well rated source
>>14004143thats actually pretty cool
What’s the nicest vintage omega watch going? Is there an omega equivalent to the Datejust? I’m looking for a watch with presence like the Datejust. Most vintage omegas are a little subtle.

>>14006608Take a look at what points each thread is made and you will get a clue who is the fucking sperg here
>>14006615I did, you made yours while this shitpost one that wasn't even used for a week was up (the casio bin laden one) and another one that was actually being used was up.
>mfw some retard is gonna make a second new thread or more when this post also reaches its limitperpetual hell
>>14006599The equivalent Omega is a gold cal 564 constellation pie-pan.
What is the comfiest ?this
>>14001613What kinds of bracelets could a guy wear with a watch? Should it be on the same arm or not?
Which one of these fucking threads am I supposed to post in?
>>14006668A bracelet that holds the watch or none.
GOD DAMN IT GUYS! I FINALLY GET A GOOD PAYING JOB AND NOW I CAN'T RATIONALIZE A WATCH CUS THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE
>>14006727Swiss mechanical - stay hereEverything else - the other thread
>>14006741>trying to divvy up the watch threads on a fucking fashion board dependent on what kind of watch they are even though they're all FUCKING WATCHESholy SHIT
I’m trying to like Seiko but so far it has no appeal to me. Anyone else?
>>14006757That’s not the op, that’s some troll. Retards just keep threadsplitting. Have a read through this thread nothing is being divided lmao
>>14006757sounds like you don't belong here, faggot
>>14006760No one's forcing you. I personally like the monsters but they don't make them anymore
>>14006771Fuck man delete that photo. Reminding me of my ex’s cat.
>>14006771Can you put your watch on your cat please, anon?
>>14006777Don’t make him post more please
>>14006767Sounds like you’re the troll
>>14006778But anon's cat is cute, anon. You shouldn't think of your ex anon
>>14006767>>trying to split a thread about watches with no good reasonyou shouldn't sling faggot if your groundwork is something as gay as that
>>14006781First love. 10/10 Swede. I fucking miss her constantly.
>>14006779>>14006784"yeah, I'll just accuse him of being the troll, that'll surely work!"
>>14006785Good watch, cute cat>>14006786I've been there man, you have to realize you can love again
>>14006786Well I'm sure jerking off to her pics and posting about her for years will help your psyche
>>14006790I mean, it's not like it's wrong.
>>14006793Please don't bully anon, we're all watch frens
How did the diver aesthetic become so popular to just wear every day even if you've never even put a toe in the water? Are people just attracted to oversized watches?
>>14006802The shape is very eye catching, I'm just starting to get into watches but the shape and style already looks appealing
>>14006603It's scratched. My Casio isn't
>>14006799He needs to hear it from someone
>>14006798Is that red and blue ring rotatable or what's the deal with it?
>>14006823True but don't be too harshFucking hell cats such goofy fuck, too cute
>>14006823A sincere fuck you and your cat man
>>14006826Yes you align it with the minute hand to easily time up to an hour
>>14006844That's pretty neat
>>14006850I suppose you could align it to the hour hand to time up to 12 hours if you remember which hand you aligned it to
>>14006841You'll thank me one day. Here you can roast my shitters and get me back
>>14003061I am also unironically confused by this
>>14006868There was a diamond and future plans involved so it’s not that fucking easy
Daily reminder my $100 quartz Seiko is more accurate than your $6000 mechanical Breitling
>>14003959Post small penis you’re compensating for while you’re at it
>>14006869It's normie bait
>>14006872That's like saying there are more calories in a Big Mac and Shake than in a 3 Michelin Star meal.An utterly meaningless comparison.
>>14006871Well just think about the dumb fucking chumps who get married and then have a kid and then get divorced. I get it nothing destroys the ego like unrequited love but still
>>14006872my wacko watch can survive in a fish tank AND be hit with a hammer, bitch

Anyone ever had a zodiac watch, anyone know what type Arthur Lee Allen had and what they go for?
>>14006924Let him have his containment thread
>>14006930What kind of watch thread doesn’t even acknowledge SIHH? Fucking plebs
>>14006934Everything doesn't need to be in the op, the op is just a front page to the content of the thread
>>14006786I had a 9/10 carrot once
>>14006603looks pretty similar to vintage poljot, quality of built too *fake shitter*?
>>14002331Don't bother with the Seiko 5, the 7s26 movement is a joke. Get an Orient Bambino or save up and get a watch with a eta 2824 or a 4rXX/NH35 movement which should be ~500USD. You can also get a Vostok amphibian but they take time to ship from Russia and they are kinda a joke watch.
