But why was the dial gold?
after spending a few hundreds on Seiko's and a Bambino, this $15 watch ended up being my favorite
>>16643037There are a bunch that go for over 800$
Really tempted to get a Tudor Black Bay 58, thoughts on it friends?. Been lookin at an Explorer 36mm or an Air King but the prices are retarded and there's 0 chance I'm getting it at retail.
>>16643076I know the BB58 is a great watch on paper and i really like the blue. But fuck, I have such a major case of vintage diver fatigue. I find it hard to get overly excited about another vintage-inspired-over-sized-crown-faux-rivet offering.It doesn't have fauxtina which is a massive plus.I don't really have anything bad to say about it, but its so fucking safe and pedestrian that u struggle to give a shit. Id definitely struggle to give 3,000 pounds sterling worth of shits. That's just my jaded opinion.
Can't decide if I should splurge on a GS snowflake, or get this nice and 1/5 cost SARX055.
>>16643120Wow nice asbestos.
>>16643120Compromise and buy 2.5 SARX055
>>16643120Your choices are either a cope, or a cope of a cope.
>>16643118Yeah I feel ya. You made me realize I'll be getting another watch the kinda looks like my current one (Tag Aquaracer 5, got it from my dad as a grad gift). I tried looking at a Cartier Tank but that just fit my lifestyle, I work from home and I'm very casual. Tank looks too dressy for me
>>16643139I could see a tank working casual with a really simple strap maybe on a grey seude or something.You could always grab a super cheap tank quartz homage and see if can make it work before taking the plunge.Didn't want to shit on your watch dreams anon, I'm just dead inside.
>>16643076Go for it, it has a lot of nice finishing touches that rolex doesn't do anymore.
>>16643149All good, I appreciate it my man.>>16643156Might check out the store again this weekend, we'll see,
Any other watches with a Sand dial?
Givin' it some juice
Anyone know why my GShock has stopped receiving the radio time signal? I think I might have accidentally turned it off but I didn't turn on Power-save mode.
What watch signals that I like to fuck older women?
>>16643118>>16643076Get a Seamaster instead. It's a much better watch.
>>16643249Where did you leave it at night? Maybe try a manual sync see if it works. You might have to leave it by a window or something to rec the signal
>>16643252Wouldn't it be chraper if you would just print a t-shirt that says 'looking for a m/gilf'?
>>16643268It used to receive no matter where it was in my house. Is a manual receive just hold bottom-right button?
>>16643275Try pic rel
>>16643277Thanks anon, I realised that when I changed my watch for DST I had just changed the timezone to UTC instead of UK time which disables the receive functions. I changed it to LDN and now doing a manual receive.
how does this thing wear with the rubber strap? I have never worn a rubber strap but im guessing its more comfortable than a bracelet? My only point of reference is the skx007 which tires my wrist like a motherfucker with the jubilee bracelet.
>>16643291It'll be much lighter, more comfortable and just be better shaped to your wrist. Looks cool as well.
>>16643303cheers. I have smallish but a very flat wrist so I reckon I can make it work.
>>16642872>no stickerpardon my poverty/ignorance but is it normal for rolex owners to never remove the caseback stickers?>>16643032nice dude>>16643192
>>16642752>Does anyone just start to feel like watches are almost pointless? Like why am I spending so much money on a stupid chunk of metal when I could be spending the same money on things that would enrich my life?i have this problem very badly i admire the craftsmanship & engineering but when i actually spend a decent amount of money I start getting thoughts of "did you seriously pay that much money for no functional purpose" after a few daysi try to tell myself it's like an art piece or treating myself or whatever but I still get these thoughts really badly i think it's because I grew up poor it's impossible for me to spend money on something purely for enjoyment, even though i can easily afford it now I can't bring myself to do it. probably not everyone's like me though i think this is some kind of mild mental illness
I buy replicas.
>>16643352Watches are not a hobby and are barely recognised as a fashion item especially among women. This is why I only have fakes and gauche shitters in my collections and others that I am hoping that will go up in value.
>>16643368>no speedy>no sub>no moonmanCope and seethe
Do you /fa/ggots wear your watches at home?
Is this based or cringe?
thoughts on tag heuer? any similar watches?love the aesthetics of this watch
This watch speaks to me
And so does this one
>>16643424I like it, but I prefer a metal strap, I think it looks too sporty for leather
>>16643385i just love when the hands go all the way to the edge of the dial like that
>>16643385This leans more on the based side.Far better than the SMP30 at least.
>>16643373Speedys are ugly and look like generic mall citizens
>>16643374I wear my watch at all times minus shower>>16643389
>>16643527guy slimmed down. Good for him.
>>16643531Noticeably, yes. So much so that someone suggested he make a new intro.
>>16643432>5>25>31I get it that it's supposed to be a fun watch, but they could have done without that 31. Unless it's for showing the date in which case i'd accept it.
>>16643330Its a big deal enough that "rolex guys" make threads on forums about peeling them off. It devalues that watch and is usually considered bad taste.
>>16643430I like, but the case budge is a bitmuch
>positive display>negative indiglo (digits brighter than background)Is this common? I've only noticed it on my timex
>>16643562pretty sure only ironmans do that "quirk"
Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving
how do i dress down a dress watch that came with a black croc strapsomething to make it a bit "warmer" i guess
I bought a used watch that has some dirt and gunk on it.What's the best way to clean it?
>>16643631Just swap the strap, if you can't do it yourself any shop that does basic watch repairs should be able to do it cheaply and should have a few straps to pick from if you haven't gotten a new one yet.
>>16643120just go for the snowflakesounds like it's what you really want
>>16643635to make it clearer, i was asking for strap reccsblack dial if that matters
>>16643647Post the watch, I like Fluco straps personally.
>>16643192what watch is that
>>16643662I don't know I just took it from google because it has the same gunk on the watch I got. Probably russian.
>>16643037nice, what model?
>>16643662Dude, can you not read? It's a Seiko SBDL089.
>>16643687>solaroh wellno I can't read what isnt there
>>16643385Beautiful color. No date, sold case back, and if it actually fit my wrist I would consider it.
>>16643647>>16643631please don't put it on a nato
what's the best replica store?
>>16643694it's in the file name.. anon pls.
>>16643699What do you want a replica store for you wont be able to buy anything, you need a real store.
>>16643562There are a couple of G-Shocks that have it, it's amazing. I call it mirror negative. On the G-Shock DW-5035E at least the display looks very reflective and the digits look sunken in depending on the angle. My best guess is that there it has a polarizer that is very reflective so it's technically a negative display but it looks positive until you use the backlight. I think some cheaper G-Shocks have it but I can't be sure and it's not advertised. It's the best display I have seen on low end G-Shocks.
I want to get the classic Casio F-91W for workouts/casual wear, in addition tothe F91W I want to get one of pic related, I can get the G Shock on sale for 62$ brand new. so which one should I get?
>>16643718Get a DW-5600E for under $50. The F91W is great but the strap might not last if you work out with it. The negative display on the G-Shock you posted will be hard to see. The whole watch has poor legibility. If you really need something other than the DW-5600, maybe something a bit dressier get the A168 or look for an MDV106 for under $50. If you are in the US you can get the watches I mentioned cheap right now.
>>16643076If you want the Rolex, save up and buy grey market. The black bay is a poor substitute, and you won't be happy unless it's actually the watch you dream about.>>16643352I understand it, and I agree with you, but the mental illness part of it is down to simple genetics and biology. Humans always want 'more'. Watches are luxury; if you're bombarded by them, then you want to be part of the club. If you didn't come to /wt/ or see pics anywhere on the net, you wouldn't care about watches. >>16643368Watches are a luxury, pure and simple. The 'hobby' aspect is just attempting to justify consumption of luxury goods. I hope your fakes go up in value.>>16643385It has been both. When they first came out, they were huge, so people wearing them were at first the 'big watch' crowd. Now, that fad has gone, but Omega still produces it, so you tend to see it on people who are in the water a lot.>>16643508Try not to cut yourself on them edges, son...>>16643555Dealers do this now, so you don't have a choice if you buy it from an AD. Also, stickers have been forged, so it's not a failsafe.>>16643619You too.>>16643699Your local Tudor boutique.
>>16643555>It devalues that watch and is usually considered bad taste.Why is it considered bad taste? I understand people keeping it on but why do people care if I remove stickers meant to be removed from my watch. Sounds like the people who keep stickers on their hats.
>>16643735If someone is obsessing over the sticker it's because they don't actually know much about the watches, anyone can reproduce a sticker and put it on the back of a watch.
>>16643729>I understand it, and I agree with you, but the mental illness part of it is down to simple genetics and biology. Humans always want 'more'. Watches are luxury; if you're bombarded by them, then you want to be part of the club. If you didn't come to /wt/ or see pics anywhere on the net, you wouldn't care about watches.i meant mental illness not really as in "more" but as in inability to spend money on myself for pure hedonistic enjoymenti have no problem spending on an expensive shoe for example because I can write it off as "well this is going to last much longer than a cheap one and make my life better"if it's a watch i can't tell myself these things, my only rationale is "i like it" so i feel guilted and unable to spend on it, it feels like mental illness because it's like a compulsion to me
>>16643723I am not concerned about the stra of the F91W because I won't wear it when I workout because I prefer not to wear a watch while I workout, I just need it to time my rests so I will just put it aside when I am done resting and starting the set.I might get the A168, heard good things about it, very durable and I can get it+the F91W for 34$.where can I get an original DW-5600E for under 50$?
>>16643352>when I could be spending the same money on things that would enrich my life?If I had something else to spend my money on I would. Watches enrich my life more than anything right now. I have no problem spending $1000 on a watch but when my friends want to take a trip that will probably cost $500 I don't want to do it. Heck my PC is old as fuck I need to update it but I don't want to spend $800+ when I'm not going to do much more than I do now.If watches are not making you happy don't buy them. I literally wear my watches and feel so happy I would pay even more for them. "This watch makes me $XXXX happy."
>watchgecko just putting clearing items on salei just want to cop a nice suede strap
>>16643752amazon has a sale right now for only 36 dollars >>16643754even if i have nothing else to spend money on i still just sit on my money and put it in the banki think its because of growing up in poverty and constant anxiety about paying the bills, i have an irrational fear of losing my job or economy going bad and suddenly not being able to pay my bills so i just hoard my money
>>16643766>amazon has a sale right now for only 36 dollarsis it actually original?
>>16643745>>16643735>>16643555seems kind of eccentric to me and reminds me of pic related
>>16643770yes, it's shipped and sold from amazon.comfakes and counterfeits are only a problem on amazon when you select a third party vendors at least in my experience and from everything i've ever read maybe someone else can confirm but i've never heard or seen someone else have a problem with amazon.com direct
>>16643752https://www.kohls.com/product/prd-674220/casio-g-shock-illuminator-chronograph-digital-sports-watch-men.jsp?prdPV=13You can also check walmart.>>16643770>>16643776People get fake stuff direct from Amazon all the time. It should be real but they have a good return policy. They have a problem with fakes because they have no way to check, everything gets dumped together. It doesn't matter to them because their volume of sales is so big that less than 1% being fake and the buyer being able to tell is not worth the expense to check for fakes.
>>16643771Yeah they don't even do it any more because the people making fakes just started reproducing them because it's just a sticker, the whole thing is stupid and not a good way to determine if a watch is real.
>>16643766I'm pretty lucky that I have family to mooch off of if everything goes to shit. I have small saving in the bank and only spend "disposable" money. I'm not wasteful on other stuff. I basically have one hobby at a time I rotate between. I'm also very picky so I'm selective what I spend my money on.Sitting on your money is perfectly fine. It can cause stress when you don't have it.
Why do people be like, yeah I'm gonna spend thousands on a watch then cheap out when buying aftermarket straps?
>>16643793>It can cause stress when you don't have it.yeah exactly i remember how stressful it was when i was young, didn't know if we were going to be able to pay rent, is electricity or internet going to get shut off today, getting evicted at one point, it was a horrific feeling now i have quite alot of money available whenever i need it feels like i can actually breathe easy, i never want to spend any of it because it enables me to feel free>>16643789>People get fake stuff direct from Amazon all the time. It should be real but they have a good return policywell there you go me personally i never had an issue and i've ordered tons of stuff from amazon, and like this anon said it's like 1%if i were you i would just order because it's almost guaranteed to be genuine, and this is the lowest they've had it in over 6 months, and you can return it for free in case it's not genuine which is probably not going to happen (or if you change your mind even)and also i would hurry up about it because amazon will probably increase the price very soon
>>16643805i think maybe people struggle to see the value in a strap, compared to a watch where you can see all the craftsmanship, it's easier for people to just write it off as "it's just a strap"also for leather straps specifically people will sometimes use the rationale of "well belts are much more product and the same price so i'm obviously being taken for a ride here" but fail to realize it takes just as much effort to create leather band as a belt, i think it might take even more. i forgot i watched a video or article about it a few weeks ago
>>16643555Keeping a sticker on is pleb tier just like keeping a tag on your boots or a sticker on your baseball cap.At this point, the Rolex tagline should be "You never actually OWN a Rolex, you merely look after it for the next flipper"
>>16643120What a pretty watch that is, fuck me oblong and roll me down a flat tabletop>>16643249Radio weather does quite a lot of things to very-long-wave transmissions, such as DCF in Germany. So you might not receive it if it's foggy, or the watch isn't on a window sill. Source: located in a marginal reach of said signal, oceAnus catches it almost every night on a southwest-facing fourth-floor window.
>>16643076Get a pelagos instead
You think this dial would look blingier irl than something like a GS White Birch?
>>16643912It's the lighting.That pic was taken in a watchbox.
>>16643928I'd prefer black or gold numerals
>>16643928>>16643907Somehow it looks.. cheap.
>>16643928What is that button for?
>>16643930The whole point is that the dial is cared away around the indices.>>16643939sure haha>>16643940When you pull out the crown to stop and set the movement, the crown snaps right back.You then push the button to start the movement again; akin to pushing the crown back in on normal movements.
>>16643930>>16643942>cared away*carved away
>>16643942Are you setting the time with the crown in or out?
Just copped lads, what we feelin
>>16643961I feel repulsed. That's just me though, if you like it that's fine.
>>16643808Not sure how amazon goes about it, but ebay takes counterfeiting pretty seriously - there us no way they'll ask you to send the item back. I bought an skx that turned out to be fake, contacted the seller and ebay, explained why I though it was fake and got a full reimbursement from ebay, who asked me not to send it back
>>16643961There are worse Richard Milles
>>16643958The crown is always in.You pull it out and let it snap back; and now you're in hacked time setting mode.When you're done setting the time, you push the button and the movement starts again.This helps keep dust etc. from entering the case during setting, is less stressful on the crown stem and connected parts, and is more accurate since you're less likely to nudge the hands out of alignment as you push in the crown.
>>16643961It's hilarious how mad you are
>>16643972Yeah i thought so, makes more sense. Interesting and useful feature i must say, especially the nudging part happens quite often on 'normal' watches. Thanx for the clarification, anon.
>>16643977Yeah, on regular mechanical watches, pushing the crown back in after setting the time is always one of those occasions where you have to hold your nose right.
>>16643972>nudge the hands out of alignment as you push in the crown.fucking hate it when this happens.that button ought to be standard on all watches
I'm looking for a new watch to replace my Timex Expedition, I got it several years ago and it was a great watch but it's very worn down and something finally died or something as it was loosing about a half hour a day before it stopped working entirely. I'd like something relatively similar in terms of overall design, maybe a little bit nicer. I'd like a date function, and the water resistance and indiglo function where both quite nice though I could make do without the latter as it died a year back. The glowing hands where nice as well. I'd like to keep it under 100 bucks but I could go a little bit more. The one i had before was a 40mm outer diameter with a 20mm band size and that seemed to fit my wrist well. Is there something on sale for BF?
Since this is banned on R*eddit discussions does that make it THE 4chan budget watch?
>>16644040Why is it banned?
>>16644040THE budget watch would still be the F-91W or, if your budget is a bit bigger, one of the Tough Solar radio controlled Casios like picrel.
>>16643019Guys we have smartphones and you are trying to be older because you eat wrong.
>>16644040I'm liking the newer bauhaus stuff.
>>16643961>that date windowPure art
>>16643352Ya I hear you man. Like if I told some of my friends or coworkers that I spent a grand canadian on a watch (60s seamaster after service cost) they be like what??? It does seem silly from the outside looking in but people spend money on all kinds of silly shit like tattoos and sneaker so i wouldnt beat yourself over it and just dont go overboard.
>>16643619>hour indices are machined sloppy, no consistent angles or edges>etched crown is inconstant and jagged>Case back sticker is missingPost your prop money again.
how tf is this a black friday sale
>>16644055No idea they probably seethe at replicasJust search for it on /r/watches theres nothing new Comments try to censor the name to remove the filter>>16644070Oh true i forgot to mention budget automatic
>>16644075That looks really nice and clean. They could have done without that 'china made' though.
>>16644121wow very nice picture did you buy that online or from a dealer
>>16644177>how tf is this a black friday saleit's black friday and it's on sale = black friday saleit's also buy one get oneyou buy one and then you get the one that you just paid forsick deals
>>16644177Now THIS is a Black Friday sale. Gonna pick up a couple of these for gifts, or sell them later for 900% profit
>>16644217>99Is that how much it should cost in dollars or what the discount should be?
>>1664422499 percent copied design elements from Rolex
>>16644231Is the remaining 1% the "99" at nine o'clock?
>>16644217>99 Gretzky/Invicta collab?
>>16644007if you're trying to stay under 100 it's tough to top what you already had, I will assume you had the expedition scout version as that one is 40mm with a 20mm band (pictured)casio marlin (MDV106-1AV) or citizen BI1041-22L are nice option and fit your needs. citizen bm8180-03e is a higher quality piece but is a bit more expensive but you might find it on sale for black friday or cyber mondaythe new gshock GA2100-1a is not as offensive as most gshocks and even has a backlight similiar to indiglo but you have to be ok with that style. it's essentially unbreakable thoughif you want automatic it's hard, most models under 100 are too small like snk809 or annoying to purchase and have terrible lume like vostok amphibia. invicta 8926 is your best choice if you don't have moral objections to an obvious rolex ripoffall of these will have lume (glowing hands) but none have indiglo, that's a timex proprietary technology, if you really loved that feature then another timex is your best choice
>>16644204Ty. Bought it locally from guy. It was nice because it got to see it in person and check and see how authentic it was. I've been looking at vintage seamaster for a while but this is my first time taking a plunge on a vintage watch besides my grandpa's old seiko. Pic unrelated but I want one
>>16644308>my grandpa's old seikoDo you have a photo of it that you could share with us? I have a couple as well and i'm interested in what you have.
>>16644308how much research/educating yourself did you do before you were comfortable enough to inspect the watchi always wanted a vintage piece but i don't know shit about telling a fake so i'm afraid ill just buy a fake or franken
>>16644070Why did make this 30m WR?Casio, why??
>>1664435130m means at least 100m desu not like you're ever going to need it, scuba steve
>>16644007>>16644263>citizen bm8180-03e is a higher quality piece but is a bit more expensive but you might find it on sale for black friday or cyber mondayyeah, check those. I copped mine on prime day for only $80. at the time, they were on jomashop for $130 so not much more than budget but iunno what they go for now. great watch.
quick wistwash check
>>16644130Man you must be mad to be making stuff up
>>16644413What accent is that?
Wore this while playing sly 2
>>16644130>Hour indices match every Daytona picture but you posted a different watch because you're seething over the idea that someone could have a real DaytonaSure seems like you're having trouble proving your point
>>16644428Its a fake
>>16643019https://youtu.be/D9BBN9UU5QcIs Greg Anderson the shitter king?Also pretty fucking comfy
>>16644432So it matches all the indicators of a real Daytona but it's fake, got it. I'm guessing you still can't post any watches you own?
>>16643249Depends where you are
>>16643619Since anon is having trouble, it does actually match the proper lec
>>16643368where do I get such good looking fakes though?
>I'm guessing you still can't post any watches you own?Sold the sneedy man on the coom to a boomer on ebay for 5K, so this is all you get.
>>16644433do you know how difficult it is to get the lec to become visible? probably not because youve never even held a rolex, but if you don't have a special lens theyre incredibly difficult to see. I don't know why your so mad that anon has nicer things than you.
>>16644447>freaking out that someone posted some nice watches and obsessing over it for days moving goalposts and ignoring every legitimate indicator>n-n-no, youre mad bro your watch is fakepottery
>>16644454> but if you don't have a special lens theyre incredibly difficult to see. "Special lenses" holy fuck lol
>>16644457Why is the dial gold?
>you will never own a DLC coated fake Daytona with dust under the dial >Your submariner will never have a gold dial>You will never have a case sticker.
>>16644462>doesnt match the fake watchpottery. anon is so mad hes making stuff up and refusing to acknowledge legitimate indicators, and im not even the guy who posted the watch. seeing you freak out this hard is hilarious
>another edition filled with this shit cause one wasn't enoughstop ruining our humble bread with this shit already
>>16644467>no idea what the inside of anons watch looks like>keeps posting some random fake movement off one of the first google results for identifying a fake rolexah yeah you're such an expert from 15 minutes of googling, why cant you post your watches anon? why are you so mad?
>>16644475>and im not even the guy who posted the watchYou have been defending yourself in the thrid person since you posted it, since you are obviously still here reading his posts and posting more pictures. If you weren't worried about your grimey frakenwatches you wouldn't have spent the last two days defending yourself in this thread.Also what the fuck is that black coating? It looks like some nigga painted it with black varnish. It sure as fuck isn't dlc or vapor deposition.
>>16644023Out of all their straps these are your choices? Anon, I...
>>16644467At least that fake is actually dlc coated and not just painted black by some nigga in his garage.
>>16644477sorry anon is way too filled with jealousy and rage, hes gotta keep reaching and trying to prove that its a fake rolex to make him feel better about himself
>>16644481ah yeah your so smart there's definitely not 57 different people posting here, you got me
>>16644351Because only retards or literal scuba divers will ever need more than 30M of water resistance.If you think a 30M watch is going to break swimming in 1 M of water you're absolutely stupid
>>16644492It might if it's a swiss 30m watch and not a casio
>>16644007>>16644263here is another ok one you might like https://smile.amazon.com/Casio-Stainless-Steel-Quartz-Casual/dp/B07T85L1TJ/changing the straps on any of these is pretty easy btw>>16644492i think 30m of water resistance is just barely splashproof cause they only test it in completely still water, in real life with water that's actually flowing and rushing the water pressure exceeds the resistance at much shallower depths than 30m
>>16644497You can't exert more than a couple of meters worth in pressure by moving your arms superman. You are propagandized
Anyone else temped to buy the seestern doxa now that they have a black dial option?
anyone here have experience with borealis straps?a shame they aren't running a sale
>>16644505I don't buy chinese watches
>>16644505I'm married to my Seiko SRPE35 and titanium-kitted Casio DW-5600E.
>>16644320It's nothing crazy. My dad and aunt bought it for him in the 70s sometime. 7006 movement. Bracelet feels very chintzy but I actually like it. Very comfortable. I'll prob put it on leather once my gold pvd buckle gets to me from ali>>16644333I did quite a bit but I found it fun and pretty easy for seamasters. Seamasters and seikos are good places to start for vintage because theres lots of info about them, spare parts are still relatively easy to come by and they arent crazy expensive. Id stay away from vintage constellations and tudors since those are way more of shitshow when it comes to frankens and old tudors in particular are hard to find parts for since they often have rolex winding systems on old ass fleurier movements. The eta based ones are less problematic. Stay away from chronos too because they hard to find parts for and expensive to service. It can turn into a money pit quick so save those until you're more experienced. The vintage watch forum on omega forums is a really great resource if your looking at seamasters but I havent really looked for seikos. Hope this helps
>>16644492Casio 30m = Swiss 200m
>>16644505Yes, doxa watches are crappy so i see no reason not to get a Chinese homage, and the seastern ones seen to have a bezel that functions properly unlike the tactical frog one.
>>16644541>Hope this helpsit definitely does i'll start lurking over there a bit as I really have always wanted a vintage piecefunny you mention seikos ive been keeping an eye out on ebay as I like alot of the vintage seikos quite a bit it's just hard with so many of them having crystals or cases that are completely shot
Which would you choose? Or should I go second-hand and look at Speedmaster Reduced?
>>16644434He is the based king. Watching him talk for 15+ minutes about EL vs LCD backlights is the best use of my time. He has a nice video about his grandfather clock.
>>16644584>buying an eta with a shitty chronograph module
>>16644584Damasko, it's the thinnest valjoux 7750 movement chronograph i have found. Also their bracelets are expensive but probably the best made in the business,
>>16644569This>>16644571Are they actually? I know somebody who has one but I dont know what year. Seemed solid.>>16644575Ya man lurking is the key. Once read a bit about how to spot fakes and frankens then I would look at pictures that guys would post of watches they were unsure of and try and guess what was off about them before scrolling through the thread and confirming. Kind of a fun game.>>16644584Damasko is kino and I want one
>>16644615Ceramic ball bearings for retention
>>16644619That is pretty typical for male endlink bracelets on watches that size.Its a tool watch, also the bracelet drops straight fucking down at the lug.As you can see the chrono wears totally fone on a normal wrist>>16644609
>>16644600It's so fucking cringe and at the same time I want the guy to keep going
>>16644434I wouldn't wear most of the stuff he talks about but I have respect for him since he doesn't come off as some larping faggot salesman like virtually every other watch youtuber. My man just loves Casio
>>16644617>>16644615This looks cool but I imagine it would a be massive chore to resize
>>16644638Dont fear the torx
>>16644628It's not cringe. Sounds like you are cringe.
>>16644638They include a special tool they made for resizing it that holds onto the screws so you don't have to worry about them rolling of the table and escaping. It's probably easier to resize than those pin and collar shitters seiko loves so much.
>>16644631There's kind of something to his purity I admire. Really want him to succeed
well I got called autistic for when someone asked for proof of something and used my watch as a timestamp..?
>>1664449730m of static water resistance is the equivalent of over 40 lbs of pressure per square inch. There is no way you'll create that much pressure splashing around or swimming and I guarantee you aren't strong enough to move fast enough under water at sea level to create that much pressure either, so no worries
Hey guys do you like my Long Jeans? I still have to break in this shitty off brand sailcloth.
>>16644750Nicelove the penis shovel tip hour hand
>>16644742>using the timestamp feature on your watchbased>taking a picture of your watch at a specific timeautistic
>>16643368based 1016 haver
>>16644773He doesn't though, it's a fake.
But why is the dial on the submariner gold?
>>16644776yeah, I know
>>16644750I like the look of the watch, but it's way too overpriced IMO. So long as you enjoy it, that's all that matters. It looks good on that strap.
>>16644800The thing loses like half its value the moment you take it out of the box, but that's why I bought it second hand. I'll probably wear this for at least a few years, don't expect to flip it any time soon.
go grope some homeless people you anime nigger
>>16644809how much did you pay for it?
>>16644817All said and done, about 2k canuck pesos, after import fees had their way with me. I probably could have shopped around but I wanted the 36mm for my babby wrists which was harder to find.
>>16644798It was coated gold, sorry if that wasn't clear the first time I said it. Hope you have a great day!
>>16644818Looks like it fits you well
>>16643368w2c good fake 1016?
>>16644826DHgate, but you're going to end up with a shitty DG movement. Getting a decent fake isn't easy right now, you used to be able to get them with Miyotas and ETAs but now its all chink shit unless you feel like getting overly personal with some commie triads and spending $500.00+.Getting it through customs can be a process too. If they bust you, you get your watch confiscated - or the make you pay import duties on a real Rolex.

>>16644837whats dg movementi thought dhgate was absolute garbage tier according to reptime faq
>>16644820So you're telling me someone took a gloss black submariner dial, took all of the applied indices off, stripped the factory finish and text off - then "coated" it in gold (while somehow achieving a sun-burst effect, which an only be done via machining), applied new text, then reapplied all the indices? You're a bad liar Pajeet - how the weather in Mumbai these days?
>>16644263>>16644384I’m checking out the BM8180-03E as I think I could reasonably spend that much especially with the perpetual battery. Thank you both very much for the help.
>>16644861no problemo post a pic when you get it hope you like it
>>16644842A DG2813 movement is a shitty Chinese clone of a Mioyta 8215.Those reptime faggots like to pay thousands for their shitters - if you get a Noob factory or some other "well known" faker, even if its a DHgate factory second (rejected due to some minor flaw) you can swap the DG movement out for a real Mioyta and get a passable fake for under $500.00Luckily for you, explorers are easy to fake because they don't have date windows (no need for a custom rolex datewheel) and they don't have a complicated bezel mechanism. Those rep time guys try to apply the Rolex elitism to fakes, its really sad.
im sorry but I can't understand your meaning here:>get a Noob factory or some other "well known" faker, even if its a DHgate factory second (rejected due to some minor flaw) and then change the movementshould you get noob factory then movement swap, or dhgate or dhgate second? i dont get it.
>>16644868sorry forgot to (you) here >>16644901
>>16644575Thanx! It has a nice linen dial! I love linen dials, i hope of owning a watch with one one day
>>16644575Here is one i have, i'll post the others when i get to my pc.
Since everyone seems to be doing it, can someone explain to me what exactly do I have to do with crypto to get free money? Thanks.
Lads, recommend me a watch for a wristlet. It's black friday and there are a ton of sales on amazon. Must be:>Mechanical, dont like digital shit>Metalthanks
>>16644995mechanical as in an automatic watch or do you mean analog with handsbecause you said "not digital" it can mean either
>>16644998Jesus fucking Christ just recommend a watch to the man. It’s not like he’s actually gonna buy it ffs.How fucking hard is it?
>>16645002have it your way:hublot big bang
>>16644998Dont want "smart" or digital display. Dont recommend me a Rolex or shit like that. Recommend me the Red Wings/Levis (made in america) of watches. I'll do my homework
>>16645006timex weekender or expedition and their variants
>>16644955You're on the wrong board, go to /biz.
>>16645013>constant vague and cryptic posts of "if you can't afford it then put money into crypto until you can dont buy shitters">refusal to elaborate whenever anyone asks for even a small amount of detail to get startedbunch of bitches istg
>>16644853very warm thank u how is your mom
just copped this bad boy, how we feelin lads
>>16645023Here or on biz? I'm as poor as a church mouse and know next to nothing about crypto so i really can't help you.
don't visit fa but I'm gonna post my 2 watches thanks for reading my b l o g
>>16645060here, people say "just buy crypto instead of shitters lolz" and then whenever anyone asks them to elaborate it's just crickets
>>16645087thank u it is my favourite. I do not like the new top time though and this probably makes me a hypocrite
>>16644995Depends how you define digital anon, can any watch truly be analogue
>>16645085Learn how to photoshop and then start designing unique wristwatches as digital NFTs and become a millionaire in a day
New purchase, Grand Seiko sbge255. Removed the bracelet as I prefer to not worry about marks on the clasp when sitting down. Give me some recommendations for straps. Been thinking about maybe a blue and white cashmere would be work and be unique
>>16645119>Removed the bracelet as I prefer to not worry about marks on the clasp when sitting down.probably for the best to avoid removing your watch to avoid scratching your laptop while waiting in an airport terminal and then forgetting it there
>>16643309Consider ordering the small strap from Omega or another 3rd party. I have a similar wrist and the strap that comes with the watch didn't work out. Something to do with the design of the clasp and buckle.
>>16645126Whoopsie just forgotsies my $10k watchie
>>16645113I was thinking about doing this but i feel like the nft market is all a twitter scam. You need to be in their circle to get any sales
>>16643752>>16643766>>16643770>>16643776>>16643808if you still haven't ordered because you are uncomfortable with amazon and the miniscule chance of a counterfeit gshock, i managed to find this for youeven cheaper for only 32.50 and from a retail store no less: https://www.jcpenney.com/p/casio-g-shock-mens-multi-function-digital-black-strap-watch-dw5600e-1v/pp5004820393you're welcome
>>16645149also it's free shipping if you select ship to store just a heads up just buy the thing 32.50 is an obscene pricei hate gshocks they look like happy meal toys to me and even i am tempted to buy one at this price
Like my new gshock square , only owned a 5600 before so its my first solar/multiband model.I think i got a JDM color/model, same module as the updated 5610 but the strap design and resin seem slightly different from my old 5600 and GA-2100.I think i prefer the old green-EL backlight to the new white LED, but I'm sure its more energy efficient or some bollocks.Paid 135 shipped from japan, could have gotten the regular red model locally for probably £50 cheaper. Not exactly the best value for a solar square.Thanks for reading my blog.
>>16645126If he had removed his bracelet this wouldn’t be a concern and he wouldn’t have to show his shame on reddit.This grey crocodile strap I think is decent although it takes away attention from the watch. I think a chocolate brown would be best.
>>16645126What are the odds he is a prissy Mac soiboi. Think wouldn't have been an issue if he here a Thinkpad chad.
>>16645172honestly this is my first visit to /fa/ and I thought you guys having no taste was a meme. how wrong I was. you should never ever wear a watch. you make watch wearing look like fedora wearing or awkward review brah suit wearing. God. I'm genuinely so angry at how little you seem to understand about the basics of what looks good. this is not a pasta. fucking kill yourself.
>>16645179Of course, the basics would call for a gmt sports watch to be on a nato strap. Much better
>>16643037is that a painted housing or did these come from the factory also in all black? i have only seen them in silver. great looking watch btw
>>16645209u make ur watches look like cheap tat. which, I guess, is what they are, but still
All I do for fun anymore is look at watches.
>>16645228I feel bad for you. Considering shopping and buying things is not a real hobby
Thinking of buying a GS Snowflake and then together with the Speedy and Sub I'll be done with watches forever.
>>16645231I don't buy, just look.
>>16645234That's even worse
>>16645226Show me your fashionable collection so that I can inspired :)
>>16645147>I was thinking about doing this but i feel like the nft market is all a twitter scam. You need to be in their circle to get any salesFrom what I understand you get free money for a NFT only if you're already internet famous so it's like opening a Patreon basically, it's not something an anonymous can do.
anon when are you going to tell us the story of being raped by a rolex owner
My granddad gave me his SARB035, feelsgoodman.
>>16645003recommending hublot to new people should be a bannable offense
>>16645099What have i done lol
>>16645119>blue and white cashmereYou obviously have better ideas than anyone here so just go and do it.
>>16643357what's your go-to site
come on balticrestock your shit already
>>16645239I already posted my watches
I buy real watches and tell everyone they are fake
>>16643120you look like an old lady either way
>>16643904>8 lines of text
I got this from intime I think. Was like £150 which isn’t that good a deal when you consider the modern explorers are £200 and are insanely good quality for the price. The 1016 rep seems pretty gnarly but saying that I’ve never held a real one. I aged it myself by scratching it and staining the dial and hands with coffee. It runs a bit fast too.
what does she wear?
I’d buy this and wear it every day if it was 38mm or smaller. Hamilton are useless and make watches for obese Americans.
>>16645316do you guys really have discussions on "aging" your fake rolexes?
kinda kino desu ngl
>>16645338Agreed. Fuck simple 3 handers that are 42mm.
>>16645327a rope around the neck
>>16645346Looks as good as a current year rolex. I wish they would drop the tag branding. They aren't even owned by them anymore.
>>16644351It's 50m though.
>>16645126Didn't someone post a reddit post in the last thread of someone claiming he found that same watch.
>>16645258Just reply to your pic then so we can see. It's not that hard
>>16645149>>16645153thanks, but pic related
>>16645119Fuck me thats nice
>>16645119Even at this distance, the dial furniture looks like a fucking render lol.Really nice.
>>16645219not him but they come in black as well
>>16644861>perpetual batterylike any watch, there is still a service interval for an ecodrive movement. apparently, there is a capacitor that burns out eventually. but it is still a far greater interval than replacing batteries every couple years.changing the strap is cheap and easy. most owners of bm8180, including myself, do this because the stock strap has really dorky-looking grommets on it.
>>16645052if you wear that in public, you really are brave
>>16643076I just bought a BB58 about a week ago. Original (black) on the bracelet. It's an awesome watch and absolutely beautiful. I have 6.75" wrists and the 39mm size looks great.
>>16645817Hmm. Definitely something to consider. What did you replace yours with?
Can anyone give info on this watch? type of movement, how much its worth? etc Seller gave no info other than 10k gold rolled plated and that its automatic / he didnt even take photo of inside
