>>15729597>2020>not getting a chink shitteri shiggy diggy dog poo
Imo wearing a watch outside of business settings is giga cringe. It shows you're obsessed with time, a penny pinching miser. It makes women dry like the desert.
>>15729671That's a retarded opinion of a simpleminded fool.
>>15729660I really want a watch in that style, really liking Bertuccis but having a hard time finding any close to me
>>15729671This is dumb. My job is dominated by whatever time our laptops give especially now we're all working from home. I think if I actually used my watch in a business setting I'd be late for shit.
>>15729671i wear my watches to sleep to bond with them.
Anyone reccomend a small quartz dive watch with numbered hours?
>>15729585looking at picking up a Fifty Fathoms for daily wear, 7.5 in wrist. y/n
>>15729721I fall asleep hearing watch ticking near my ear, only reason I still have mechanical watch
>youtube faggot reviews watch>doesn't start the chronograph onceFUCKING
>>15729597The Forester is nuke proof
>>15729671Where you do come up with such stupid ideas? I can literally walk down any street at any time of the day and see people wearing watches.
>order watch from Belarus>"thank you for your order! oh its okay, shipping is FREE ">its been 2 months without any updatesany day now......
>>15729726It's quite a large watch but 7.5 should be more than large enough to wear one.
Monster autist here, got this little fucker back after a beadblasting and and bezel repainting job. He’ll fit in with the 7 other Monsters in the family
>>15729765post collection pl0x
>>15729765That looks really nice. Please post collection.
My wrist is 3.5 inches, rec me a good but cheap watch.
>>15729773No, I’m too autistic and preoccupied with separating the individual components that make up the chili I cooked for dinner. I need to do this while playing the MGSV “Sins of the Father” theme on loop. These things take too much time and I may not be in the mood to look at my watches. I’m not joking about any of this
Why why why do I want another digital shitter
>>15729781kinograph autist herewhat the fuck is wrong with you
>>15729780I hope it's not too big for you
>>15729587the cut 6 and 12 look like absolute asscheeks
>>15729789For once I agree with cut numerals autist.
>>15729743we're all gonna make it
>>15729743I ordered a luch one hand from Amazon - surprised no one really talks about them since they're pretty interesting as far as cheap shitters go
>>15729743It took me a little over 2 and a half months before I got my Vostok from Russia.
>>15729795I want to get the one that looks like a speedometer
>>15729802This would make me anxious anytime the hand in in the red portion

>>15729802It looks a bit weird - like the wearer attaches some odd significance to 9pm-midnight- Take medication in this window or you die- Ideal bedtime- Start thinking about lunch- 'It's turbo time'
>>15729721This, but wearing them as a cock ring
>>15729585Is there a poorfag (sub $300) rolex explorer type watch? By that I mean a rugged tank watch that wouldn't look out of place under a suit sleeve?
>>15729598I like the blue dial but how does the dial look empty yet cluttered?
>>15729818yeah that's the mood I'm going for
>>15729617Remind us of your autism?
>>15729607Imagine having such a shitty credit line a casio purchase matters
>>15729809I'm gonna SNOOOZE
>>15729827What makes it so /tv/ ?
>>15729782Because they're the best for reliability, reputation and respect. And they handle anything you can throw at them.
>>15729781Based. Remember to take a pic when you feel like looking at ur watches
>>15729872But i already have so many. F91, f91, w86, w800, royale, basic calculator, db611, db380, dw5610, ga2100. I don't need more BUT I WANT IT
>>15729886I've got an a168 coming and thinking of adding the royale.
>>15729913I was thinking about getting a gold a700 to go with my >>15729608 Also wanted to get one of these >>15729872After he posted in in a previous thread but fug as another anon said I dont neeeed them i want them
>>15729928Get a square and then get a gold aliexpress bezel and bracelet to match your other watches. But really you should consider buying the citizen ana digi temp reissue.
Was I baited?
>>15729944if you live in EU you should be aware of how expensive (((VAT))) is
>>15729940They make a gold a700 already and I got a gold bracelet
>>15729954Yea, its on everything. Who even thinks of vat, its on the invoice.... like every invoice my whole life. I'm talking about the watch.
>>15729944I don't think so. It looks good if nothing else.
>>15729956I would get something more interesting. A gold dw5600 or citizen anadigitemp would be a nicer adition than an a700. You already have a watch that has the same functions as the a700, get something for some variety.
>>15729944A fucking fifth of the price of the thing20%How do you euros stand it?
SMAEL shitter is as good as nutnfancy claimed it was, a steal for a 12$ watch
>>15729993Free healthcare. (Almost) Free University education. Working infrastructure. I'd take that over having to pay no VAT.
Are vertical subdial layouts based or cringe?
>>1572997212mm thick, pretty hyped>>15729993You should see a car invoice lol>>15730000£10k starting stand fee for Uni, I wouldnt call that almost free vs USA okay but your prices are retarded.
>>15730000all that stuff isn't "free" you foolit's subsidized by stuff like VAT
>>15729944yoooooooooooo this nigga actually fell for the shilling and got a BALLStic lmao
>>15730005Compare £10k to around $60+k per year for a US uni. Other European countries its actually free.>>15730006> it's subsidized by stuff like VATNo shit sherlock. That was the point. VAT is a 'fair' tax because richer people buy more things and end up paying more tax.
>>15730006no shit genius
>>15730015>>15730016why are you proud to pay 20% extra on literally everything?
>>15729991That's just casios I'm interested in. I already have a field watch, looking at divers like lorier, and chronos with the seagull handwind movement.
>>15730017I like not having to pay $250k to get an xray taken.
>>15730017from one american to another, you're fucking retarded
>>15730020We have private insurance. You are only able to have that option because America fronts the bill for NATO defending most of the western world.
>>15729289>I wanted a gshock but I think that almost every other one except this GA2100 looks absolutely like shit or like a watch for kidsJust get an Edifice Black Label.
>>15729944The fact that the crosshairs and the logo are printed on little raised sections makes the watch literally ascended tier
>>15730018Then get a dw5600 and get the gold aliexpress bezel.
>>15730000University shouldn't be free. Our infrastructure is a joke. Still undecided on healthcare.t. britbong
>>15730024Best current Calatrava though I'm more partial to the brown rose gold version.
>>15730034Idk i dig the all black i like mixing up wearing gold and silver
>>15730035> Our infrastructure is a jokeAs a tea-drinking brit who worked in the us for many years I can say that as bad as you think the UK is in that regard, it's certainly worse than some places in Europe, it is still a mile better than most places in the US. No one wants to make anyone pay taxes to afford to do anything, arguments between city and state who pays or does basic shit like fix holes in freeways or roads etc. For the so called richest country in the world you'd be amazed how much of it is a shithole.
The Casio A700 really does seem like the perfect minimalist watch>b-b-but muh bauhaus pope watchThat thing is trash
>>15730054I rather the a1000. Metal case and often the mother of pearl face isn't as bad as in pictures.
>>15730051How's those freedom of speech and right to bear arms laws treating you over there?
>>15730051>For the so called richest country in the world you'd be amazed how much of it is a shithole.America has problems but the UK is experiencing 1984 right now. You already have Twitter police, I look forward to when the thought police show up over the next decade.
>>15730080Hyper combo finish
what watch represents D-Day the best?
>>15730074The gun culture is kind of surreal. You can meet the most chill hippy tree hugging left-wing vegans then when you go to their home you find out they have a floor to ceiling gun safe full of hand guns and assault rifles and they do not see the problem with that.>>15730077kek. stop reading /pol/. it's melting you're brain. that isn't even close to reflecting reality.
>>15729944nice double priced seagull LMAO
>>15730092same guy but i wish the hands on this were just a little bit longer
>>15730093They have automatic rifles? And yes its that bad people are fined and jailed for saying "the wrong thing"
>>15730093People have not gotten arrested for their Twitter comments in Britain? You are so cucked it's beyond belief.
Tell me more about how the UK is doing just fine.>A British man was arrested Saturday after he was found walking the streets of Dunfermline, Scotland, with a potato peeler.>Scott Walker, 39, appeared before the Dunfermline Sheriff Court Monday, where he was charged under Criminal Law Act 1995 for carrying “an article which had a blade or which was sharply pointed, namely a potato peeler,” the Dunfermline Press reported.>The man faces up to four years in prison for carrying the kitchen utensil in public without good reason.kek best of luck britbro, I'm sure it'll all work out
>>15729944I know of someone who resold theirs dor double the price on ebayHis comments were it is worth the money, the quality is fantastic. The st19 movement is nothing to sniff at it was my own personal most accurate watch beating my eta2824-2
>>15730112>cherry picking outrageous statements from tabloidsYou aren't pursuading anyone
>>15730118It's ok mate enjoy your not freedoms. At least you can buy watches but god forbid you get caught outside with a small knife.
Tell me more about how the US is doing just fine.>45,000 people die annually because they cant afford healthcare
>>15730119Jesus christ this is pathetic.
>>15730119>the metal file
>>15730123>get destroyed on why the UK is a dystopian shithole>b-b-but what about the US?>muh healthcareobsessed. Don't try and shitpost with the big boys
>>15730129>living in the USI wouldn't live in the US if you paid me to. "Land of the free" got me kekking
>>15730119>>15730129You do realise most of those posts are the police having a laugh. They just stop some spotty teenage mobs and take their shit off them and embarrass them on twitter. If you did the same in the US the kids would have guns and shoot the cops dead. Think I'm more than okay being brit.
>>15730121I have explained this a few times but I guess one more won't hurt.The UK has for many years had a lot of city knife crime. It's basically entirely niggers stabbing niggers. It got seriously bad in around 2005-2010 until the police finally got permission to enact a controversial stop and search where they basically targeted black young men and got a lot of knife crime levels down.But that stop and search got stopped because of politics even though it was fantastic, and now knife murders in English cities are higher than ever. These silly little public displays of police very clearly not doing a correct job is an unspoken protest by the police that the police are unable to take on the true criminals because they don't have the laws to do so.
>>15730123Healthcare isn't a right you cannot compell someone to treat you because the gobment. >>15730132Can't hear you over this freedom to buy ar15s and .357 magnums.
So anyways. I thought this was a watch thread. Post watches.
Ah of course, all the incompetence of the UK "police" is just a joke. Now I understand.
Goddamn the UK police are based
>>15730137healthcare should be a right though
I'm tired of these fashion watch brands commissioning artists I like to draw these shitters.
Gonna get a Gucci watch like pic related. Specifically the bumble bee with the green striped band. Would this be a nice f-you flex? I think any watch more than a grand is kinda retarded
>>15730147Time to commission them yourself.
>>15730146How is forcing someone to provide you medical services a right? It violates the non aggression principal
Well I sold my SMP. Next up the explorer!
>>15730149Are you gay?
>>15730123We already give poor people Medicaid you dumb nigger
>>15730163That was a mistake.
>>15730149A watch from a real watch company is a better flex than a gucci watch.
>>15730153Wearing what though?
>>15730157???nobody is forced to do anything. healthcare should be payed through taxes. thats how it works in every other developed country
>>15730135Yes silent protest lets fuck over some dude carrying a potato peeler.
>>15730185If it were me it'd be one of the independents like roger smith or dufour.
>>1573017745,000 people in the US still die anually because they cant afford healthcare, also racism is bad
What kind of life expectancy can I get out of a 4r36 movement assuming an easy life for the watch but no servicing? It's crunch time between the only mechanical I can afford and a quartz. If life expectancy is the sole buying criteria what should I do? You /wt/ anons have given me a boner for an automatic with that smooth second hand movement but I don't want to buy a white elephant.
>>15730187Nonono you or a different anon made the assertion it should be a right. Now you are being forced to pay more taxes to not have the choice or a health care provider because I wub my gobment.
>>15730206like 10 years, maybe more
>>15730208yesalso nobody would have to pay more taxes if we just cut back our spending on the military and bailing out corporations
>>15730017Americans have tips...
Invictas are pretty nice and somewhat affordable based on the type
>>15730222> a courtesy is the same as a non optional tax>>15730214So you are pro forcing people to provide services. I simply don't agree with that philosophy. My mind is not changed. Thank you for your time.
>>15730225us dutch are just like the better germans. we dont holocaust people either
>>15730220>>15730224What material is the yellow parts made of?
>>15730220complicated shitter movement is prettier than 3 hander luxury movement
>>15730232Who else do you have apart from the Gronefeld? They do make some of the best watches you can get right now but they are the only Dutch watch makers I know.
>>15730231public school teachers arent forced to work, and there are plenty of those. in most countries with public healthcare, the same applies. slavery is wrong, if thats what youre sayingalso, movement
>>15730242thats it. But our rivalry with the germans is eternal
Datograph still best chronograph.
what kind of idiot would commission a machinist to make a metal spacer ring to replace the OEM plastic one instead of just getting a good watch in the first place
>>15730220quartz movement with a soul
>>15730255I know guys who have put like $300-1000 into $300 shitters because they had the shitter for a long time
>>15730228Invictas are future classics. First they'll go entirely out of fashion and many mechanical ones will get discarded as getting them repaired won't be economical but a few decades later they will be regarded as the most iconic watches of the first quarter of the 21st century. They'll be highly collectable, especially amongst a new generation of SEA watch collectors, with the most obscene and morbidly oversized limited edition models fetching exorbitant prices. Unironically the best long term investment pieces in the market.
>>15730288I think I'm gonna be sick
thanks to whoever is posting movement with me
>>15730284Has zenith put this movement in something that isn't a skeleton dial limited edition yet?
>>15730295My work here is done
>>15730298Np bro. Just glad to see someone getting the thread back on track.
why arent micro rotors more common?
>>15730309You need a thick piece of dense metal to produce the same torque as the thinner full rotors. So a good chunk of expensive precious metals is always needed which is expensive. It also requires a movement built around it. You can't simply modify an existing movement.
>>15730288They do totally encapsulate everything wrong with the modern watch industry. Amazing really.
Can someone comment on my bullshit blacked out obsession and persuade me into it or dissuade me entirely. I feel something like this would be a great "one watch collection" for me - it's not $20k so it can be a beater, it's a respectable brand that people actually know, so it's a "nice watch", and it's a military looking watch which is the style I like.The only problem is that the bullshit coating gets worn and scratched in like a week, so all the used ones look terrible.What do?
>>15730352learn to refinish it yourself every week
>>15730347tungsten is pretty dense too, but i suppose that makes sense
I hope this isn't shilling but I'd like to mention that cwsellors.co.uk have very quick and helpful customer service. I queried the details of a particular watch I was thinking of buying and they went and took a pic of it and emailed it to me within 24 hours and some subsequent questions were answered within an hour. They aren't the kind of store you can haggle with unless you have leverage but I think good service (even for someone who hasn't bought anything) should be recognised.
what is the dark souls of watches?
>>15730364go back to r*ddit you utter faggot
>>15730303I have angina
>>15730366eat my shit nigger dark souls is more 4chan culture than your shitty watch thread faggot
>>15730370back to r/greentext you go zoomer trash
>>15730352I have a Seiko Monster with PVD coating. It has moderate plating loss on the hard corners of the bezel, case, and bracelet. Despite all of this, I think it looks great, because the toolishness of the design lends itself to wear and tear. Pic related isn't PVD, but you get the point. Your Breitling Avenger is DLC coated, which is much more durable than Seiko's PVD. The bold design of the bezel, with its angles and use of engraving for notches and numbers, can handle some wear and tear. Get it, it'll look good. Also, this guy >>15730353 is probably joking, but refinishing DLC for watches can get costly.
>>15730373i wouldnt even know thats a subreddit you fucking tourist. ive been here longer than you have
>>15730375totally you filthy nigger. go back to comparing things to videogames on r*ddit
>>15730354> tungsten is pretty densetrue but I'm not sure how easy it is to work with also there is the aesthetics to consider. an engraved gold rotor looks damn good.
>>15730381>videogames are redditholy shit hownu.ru
>>15730390>phoneposter is a touristcolor me surprised. now fuck off to your shitty site.
What watch would yugi wear?
>>15730396tf do you want?
>>15730392this just in. not everyone that browses 4chan is a neet constantly sitting at their desk with their gaming pc trying to compare everything to a video game. now fuck off now. you clearly don’t know shit about watches
>>15730364Well darksouls is thought of as the hardest, toughest game right? >laughs in original xbox ninja gaidenSo how about a dive watch rated to 12,000M?
>>15730398Expensive led/lcd watch
>>15730406clearly a normalnigger, you can fuck off>>15730407dark souls is piss easy and im not saying this to win internet points. i dislike how its branded the way it is. anyway >a dive watch rated to 12,000Myou can go harder
>>15730415Have you beaten ds1 low soul level with no spells?
>>15730398don't duel disks have a built in watch?
>>15730416i never did any of those kinda challenges, never appealed to me. im always just pure strength and i dislike magic. you saying that is just artificially making the game harder, anyone on their first playthrough wouldnt do that. that can probably be used for any game, "have you tried x or y to make the game harder"pic related is apparently the lowest a watch can go
>>15730415this is a watch thread nigger. you clearly don’t know shit about watches. back to the dark souls thread on vg you go
>>15730425>pic related is apparently the lowest a watch can goat 15,000 M*>>15730426>/vg/lol.
>>15730415Well since the watch is oil filled (and therefore incompressible) the true depth rating is "any reachable depth"
racism is bad imo
>>15730434that sounds really cool, kinda curious to run some DIY oil filling on my vostok
why are gmts so expensive
>>15730445I admire your enthusiasm (isn't it just the most perfect pressure resistance solution?) but there are 2 things you should consider. Can you fill the watch with oil leaving absolutely zero air? Can the movement in your watch run in a fluid medium?
>>15729743That's a halftone print not texture, right? Love it.
>>15730445You will kill it. Not a joke.
>>15730425The game is as easy or hard as you want it to be. Don't complain it's too ez if you were over sl 45 when you fight drake and Josh or sl200 end game.
>>15730456thats fair but thats the great thing about vostok, theyre cheap. doing some light browsing its possible to DIY it. im sure after some videos itll be possible. i honestly wasnt expecting this kinda answer about water resistance >>15730467maybe but sounds fun>>15730470i dont farm in souls game, literally every run i just kill every enemy i know of and play the game how its supposed to be played. or are you implying by playing the game normally youll eventually be overleveled? because this is actually true. killing one lord will result in you being overleveled for the other 3 lord levels since they dont actually scale with your character which is retarded
>>15730454because seagull hasnt made a gmt watch yet
this is a mechanical watch
>>15730364>Guys tell me what product to consume based off of my interest in another unrelated product that I currently consume
>>15730489i am just having fun you spurg. anyway im satisfied with the result i got. >currentlyi have been playing this since 2011, not to mention demons souls
>>15730476Sounds like a fun experiment. I look forward to your "I depth-proofed a Vostok" post.
>>15729997>15729997>breaks in MUD
>>15730163No micro adjustable clasp, the bezels to wide, looks shit in strap. You really wanted a sub.
>>15730503i will, going to look through some of my local hardware stores and the like for some needed materials
>>15730495Thank you for your service true gamer veteran, but you shouldn’t justify a purchase based off of some person saying that X watch is closest thing to the watch form of a video game, because they are both two completely different things.
Rate my collection.
>>15730517>but you shouldn’t justify a purchase thats just your opinion. and anyway its not like i bought a new watch
>>15730519needs more color and less gshock
>>15730519boring as a collection but each piece is very nice
>>15730525I will say when I wear the Speedmaster it's usually on a NATO strap with a bit of color. I could see a need for a little more pop though. As for less G-Shock, you're wrong about that. I feel like everybody should have at least one. That is a full-metal one though, it's pretty nice.
>>15730530Yeah I never really thought about how boring it really is all together.
>>15730483always thought these were sick especially with the oil temp gauge
>>15730519Needs color, kinda boring. It's just a bunch of memes and no personal taste.
>>15730519Do you actually own these, or is this what your ideal collection would look like?
>>15730525>needs (...) less gshockHow can you be so wrong in so few words.
>>15730539I own them, the only one I'm looking to change out is the JLC, and maybe the G-Shock if every ever come out with a fully brushed finish version.
>>15730519Speedy is great, whatever the retards here say. Just so good looking in person. Get the upgraded clasp.Errr the Tudor pelagos, I personally don't like it, thick but light, feel cheap in hand maybe I would get over it in time, id rather a Sub (retarded pricing) or seamasters (one brand, go with the speedy) i can see why you have went with it. I like Laco, underrated, I think their higher end watches are better than Stowas for quality and a bit cheaper. I'd rather have an A dial.JLC love it! Great brand, id probably go with a reverso but master is great too. I would like more contrast in the hand vs dial but its a dress watch so its not so bad.Drop the gshock, I know I know its for cutting the grass, at the gym whatever, just use your phone.Timeless collection, will look good in 10 years. Swatch the Tudor pelagos for a blue 58 thats all I can can really. Grand seiko sbgw231 is another option for the JLC, the JLC is probably better.
>>15730149>wants to flex>I think any watch more than a grand is kinda retardedI think it's you who is retarded
>>15730512>>15730503>>15730476It literally isn't possible to work. You're wasting time and money.>>15730483There is a reason the movement in this watch is separated from the oil filled dial.
>>15730547>Drop the gshock, I know I know its for cutting the grass, at the gym whatever, just use your phone.>just use your phoneAre you lost? Did you forget where u are? Also there's literally nothing wrong with having a gshock, you're just being a snobby faggot.
>>15730374>Your Breitling Avenger is DLC coated, which is much more durable than Seiko's PVD.Yeah I guess it depends on what you're doing with it - this guy's Avenger is from 2018 for example, and it looks like this, some are much worse, some are much better, from how many I've seen I would say that this is on the better end of average. Do you think this is acceptable? >Also, this guy >>15730353 is probably joking, but refinishing DLC for watches can get costly.I know, supposedly they can do it when you send it for a full service though.
>>15730530>>15730534Boring collection is a term thrown around way to much, ah it boring, saw all these before. When you drop £10k on watches a lot of guy play it safe, so they can wear the watches year in year out, watches that don't ages or fall out of fashion are also classed as boring.
>>15730547Wow, I've never had somebody get the "one brand" thing before, good shit. Yeah with a small collection I didn't want to have multiple from one brand. Ironically, the whole time I was saving for my diver I had the Seamaster in-mind. It wasn't until I was ready to purchase and I went to an AD and tried on both watches that I bought the Pelagos. The Seamaster was very nice, probably a better watch, but it ended up just looking so flashy. With that reflective ceramic dial, the polished hour markers, glossy bezel, it just shimmered like a disco ball, and the Pelagos was so the opposite that I just absolutely loved it.
>>15730558When all your watches are black and white memes it's boring. It's the equivalent of dressed by the internet but for watches.
>>15730240Is that a ring shaped winding weight? Pretty neat, looks nicer than a microrotor.
>>15730547As for the rest, I didn't know there was an upgraded Speedy clasp I'll have to look into that. I do normally wear it on a NATO or a leather anyways though, it's a strap-monster! Laco I appreciate that you like it, I was also between this ans Stowa but the case shape just sold me on it. I was aiming for the A dial, but I decided I wanted to see how the B dial was for daily use with the minutes having more focus, and I actually really dig it. Plus it looks more like an actual dial in a cockpit. The JLC was actually sort of a compromise, I'd like to get something hand-wound and with a little more personality, but I got it for a great price. The G-Shock doesn't get much wrist time admittedly, but there's something charming and humbling about the $40 watch that people put just as high as luxury brands in terms of respect. As far as the Blue BB58, as much as I love the style of that watch, my diver tends to be my daily, and my daily needs a date window, no exceptions.
>>15730552100% not a snob,I have had 3, g shocks, square, king (picked up in tokyo) and metal square. Oh and that metal square it so top heavy its ridiculous, its unwearable, braclets light so I has no counter. You just end up wear the gshock to much, so like and comfy. You end up wearing your nice watches less, I moved to wering £300-900 watches instead of a gshock for around the house.
>>15730563>black and white memesI don't understand why something being known automatically makes it a "meme". You wear Red Wings for the heritage and durability and people call them "meme boots", you wear a Speedmaster because of the attachment to the Apollo missions and the history and it's a "meme watch". People like it so you shouldn't like it. I didn't buy the watches because they were popular, but it turns out people like a cool story or a nicely made watch.
>>15730570I have an a dw5610 with a chink metal bezel and bracelet and don't find it to be top heavy at all, very comfy watch.
>>15730576>because something is popular that makes it a meme You aren't very bright, are you?
>>15730519Sell the speedy reduced and buy a modern 38mm sneedmaster.Sell the g-shock and get the black titanium model.Otherwise fantastic.
>>15730576reddit wings are meme boots because they masquerade as quality boots when they're bottom of the barrel quality wise that only sell as they're marketed as heritage """work""".buying reddit wings essentially tells me that you put in about 30 seconds of research to find the first thing above made in china boots that had all the feel good buzzwords that you can spout off to your friends to justify buying $300 boots that are factory seconds of factory seconds when compared to other MiUSA brands
>>15730586Not him but that is the literal definition of a meme anon.
>>15730576Non of your watches indicate any personal taste.
>>15730592I think if you knew me you'd think they fit my "personal taste" perfectly. If anything my friends are surprised that I like the blued hands on the Laco.
>>15730590No, that's half of what makes a meme. If that were the real definition, then everything that is popular would be a meme and that simply isn't true.
>>15730590Yeah, that's because he misquoted it.
>>15730554I really want to like the avenger lineup but they're all so big, they looks like invictas.
>>15730589To be fair I also own a pair of Thursdays and a pair of Danners, but yes, I wasn't looking to spend a ton, just get some nice enough boots with a Goodyear welt that will last longer than how insanely fast I was burning through sneakers.
>>15730606Also the other two don't get called "meme boots".
>>15730596>everything that is popular would be a memeYes, that is by definition what a meme is.
>>15730543Fuck off richfag.
>>15730616u r jealous
>>15730561>>15730567Yea I get the 1 brand thing, I struggle with it as well, I see the seamaster as a placeholder for a sub if I ever get a call? Happy to get on the list honestly, they were not taking anyone for a year there at my ad. Maybe they put my apacation in the bin? Either way placeholder or fuck you to Rolex, seamaster a nice watch. Most of the guys here at /wt/ don't get it, they call it boring, I can see its a well thought out collection, colourful dial watch get old fast and the blue need to be just right. Gets expensive quick running after dial colours and you rarely wear them because they are hard to match with outfits and a lot if the time can look tacky. Just change your strap colours.....Good collection, you know what your doing, add as you see fit. I'm going to add a Reverso in the next year most likely.>>15730588>reducedLike I said they know nothing here.
>>15730616I mean I didn't impulse-buy all of them yesterday, I've been collecting for years now, and I've had to save up for every one of them. Hell, even that G-Shock that's like $600.
>>15730626Oh I realize I never addressed the Submariner, either. So like I said for the Black Bay I need a date window, and I absolutely cannot stand the Rolex cyclops date magnifier. I like that collection as well, I've thought about one of those Sea-Gull "vintage" watches. They always just look so nice.
>>15730612Now show me in that screencap where it says that in order to be a meme something must be popular. Memes can forced, they can be about something unpopular or hated, they can be completely empty and without significant meaning or substance. Memes are spread mindlessly by people who are copying others in their culture; it doesn't mean the meme is popular or has any significance. They're a product of groupthink and tribalism. Things like consumer products aren't necessarily memes because they're popular, they're memes because people mindlessly consume them out of a desire to be part of an accepted group. In turn, another group becomes contrarian and dislikes a product because they are popular with a group they don't like. Then their unpopularity becomes a negative meme about them. Tl;dr: memes are about group identity and tribalism, not popularity
>>15730585The real one is a brick, its 30g heavier than a speedy and 70% of the weight is in the head vs the speedy perfect head to braclets ratio.
>>15730627I said fuck off not fuck on.
>>15730604>I really want to like the avenger lineup but they're all so big, they looks like invictas.This one is 44, so within the limits still.
>>15730638It definitely is heavy, and top-heavy to boot, but it doesn't seem to bother me any. I got it sized pretty well so it doesn't slide side-to-side too much.
>>15729587Here is your 6k watch, bro.
>>15730585>>I have an a dw5610 with a chink metal bezel and braceletPics?
>>15730640u r still jealous
>>15730632I want the no date, I hate it as well. I change my watch everyday so dates are a pain for me. They wear well, look great, as long as you know what you're getting yourself in for they are great but I think of them as a bit of fun, I have had issues with them to be honest but I've had 4 and 1 was just problematic (chrono button not as crisp as it should have been) and and another had chrono sec off by a 10th of a sec but they are cheap.
>>15730664Imagine the other guys with you getting a JLC or an omega and you get a shitty eterna.
>>15730206Get a citizen or seiko solar powered, radio-adjusted quartz piece with 100m WR and you will practically never have to take it off.
>>15730664You will be very have a full set, the grana is impossible to find
>>15730236>sol do re miwhat model is this and what chime does it make?
>>15730664which of these is the original?
>>15730244My grandma had a soviet hand-wound the size of half a finger digit. I sure it was woefully inaccurate, but still interesting engineering.
>>15730682are those cufflinks??
>>15730407>the ultimate dive watch is a quartz piece filled with oilmechanifags seething
>>15730654iwc have to be the most overpriced shitboxes. Some of them look ok, but then you dig into the specs and they're an instant no. Even if someone gave me one, I'd sell it and get two better watches.
>>15730519Looks like someone with new money and zero horological knowledge read a GQ article and bought "the perfect 5 watch collection" over a weekend.
>>15730626This yours? How is the Cuxhaven? Does it feel huge?
>>15730302shame one with 8 day power reserve doesn't look as interesting
>>15730698Not OP but just googled Tourby. Seem great value at a glace. I just hate how big they are. Fully admit to being a wristlet but who wants a 45mm 18th century inspired dress watch? The customer pictures look like they've strapped dinner plates to their wrists. Do you know any other small brands with a similar aesthetic and pricepoint in traditional sizes?
>>15729587Nice Parnis homage bro.
>>15730035>still undecided on healthcare If you'd rather pay tens or hundreds of thousands for basic healthcare costs then fuck of to the USA you absolute cunt.
>>15730698I know you meant that as an insult, but I honestly take it as quite a compliment. In basically all of my hobbies I like to keep my collections pretty small while still covering as many categories as I can. Sound like you think I should have gone for more sleeper companies with all of that "horological knowledge", but it also sounds like I did that well. Also if you count when I started saving for the first one, this collection is like six years in the making, definitely not a weekend.
>>15730220Panerai have the sexiest movements.
>>15730705Yea, errr not going to lie its pretty big, 42mm no bezel white dial, feels like a 44mm but the lug to lug is 49mm so it wears fine, it can be a bit dinner plate is but I fucking love the looks and the unitas is amazing to wind.
every man needs a ROWLECKS!
>>15730680All of them.
>>15731320Is that a 36mm stowa?Nice collection bro
>>15731356The Stowa is 40mm, laco is 42mm and nomos 38mm for ref, thanks!
