I will unironically buy a casio edifice with 50000 functions, fuck obsessing about these little pieces of shit, I'm getting watch burnout.
>>17013239Continuing from last thread, what's a good alternative for a 41mm perpetual. Want something with a big face that's not ostentatious and could be for everyday use. Already own a Datejust, so would getting a Perpetual be redundant?
>>17013318What size DJ? An OP would probably be very redundant with a DJ unless there are some days where you don't want to know what day it is. That's the problem with really versatile watches. They end up being the daily go-to and everything else ends up sitting in the drawer. Since a DJ is so versatile, to avoid redundancy, I would pick something that's completely different like a full-on sports watch, a luxury sports watch, or a complicated dressy piece.
>>17013318Get a casio edifice you nigger
>>17013327Get a casio edifice, you nigger
>>17013317It's a good first watch for an Indian school kid.
>>17013239who is this autist?
>>17013345Get a casio edifice, you nigger
>>17013323Looking for something similar to this. It's a Gucci Pantheon automatic Swiss-made and my first watch purchase when I was young and didn't know Gucci watches were shit. I really liked the design of it though, I've misplaced it somewhere and I have the money to get something a bit better. Any suggestions for a similar style?
>>17013351Another pic for reference.
>>17013351Get a casio edifice, you nigger
>>17013328They don't give me a chub
I like to collect old Seikos. Here is my collection.
>>17013351The Zenith Defy has a similar shape, as does the older, discontinued IWC Ingenieur 3239.Depending on your spending level, the Bvlgari Octo Finissimo takes that angular look and ramps it up to 10.
r8 my upgrade from tag link calibre 6akamy cope for a rollie datejust/op 41like just fucking sell me one god damn it
>>17013353That watch looks ugly, is downmarket, and cheap. Why would I get a watch that's worse than my original one when I'm in a position to get something luxury?
>>17013363Thanks for the suggestions fren. Not really into the octagonal shape of the Zenith. The IWC looks nice but I prefer my Gucci. Bvlgari one isn't quite my cup of tea.
>>17013368Octagonal? Oh, that must be an older model.I'm talking about reference 95.9000.670/51.m9000
>>17013367I think it’s an Hamilton pioneer day date
>wife just gave birth to my first kid>its a fucking boy I'm so happyBelieve it or not I managed to knocked someone up! I've always worn either Seikos SKX or Gshocks all my life but now I kinda want something that I can pass onto my son on my deathbed. Something that he can use to sell/barter to get him out of a sticky situation. But also something that I can wear everyday or at least on days I am not working.I am thinking either Railmaster or Pelagos FXD, I know I want something without a date with a strap.
>>17013364>my cope for a rollie datejust/op 41>like just fucking sell me one god damn itNeither the OP41 or the DJ41 are particularly rare watches. Unless you're looking for an extremely unusual dial color or bezel/bracelet configuration, you're going to be waiting a couple of months, tops.The long-ass waiting lists are for the popular sports models. Rolex makes hundreds of thousands of DJs per year. It's their single best-selling model.
>>17013374Don't take this the wrong way, but if you leave your son anything, it should be a Rolex or a Patek. Omegas aren't really heirloom quality and Tudors especially aren't.
>>17013370Not OP but I think the Gucci one looks better than that. Cleaner face.
>>17013352>I know, we'll put the name at 3 o'clock, not 12 o'clock like everyone else. That will look cool and modern>What about the date window? That normally goes at 3?>Fuck...put it at 4.
Are Invictas frowned upon here? I want a watch that can take a beating and look all right>>17013374>my son on my deathbedI read it as my son my denthead
>>17013386To be fair, it's a pretty clean looking watch, especially for Gucci.
>>17013381Anon believe me I agree 100% but right now Rolex as a brand is incredibly overinflated. If I can get a 114060 at MSRP I'd jump on it, but right now only brands like Tudor/Omega/Tags can be had for MSRP.
>>17013388Sure. There are minimalist watches that are way worse. Personally, I would have either gone no-date or put the name at 9 and the date at 3 so the dial has some symmetry.
>>17013374>Something that he can use to sell/barter to get him out of a sticky situation.You're retarded dude. Nothing gets you out of a sticky situation because you can't fucking tell a fake from a real watch in a Vietnamese snake pit, and in every other situation, you just give people actual money.
>>17013393Yeah, but your kid isn't going to be born for a while yet and you'll have plenty of time for him to get old enough for you to pass something onto him.Go to the AD and put yourself on the list for something.
>>17013395>fake from a real watch in a Vietnamese snake pit, and in every other situation, you just give people actual money.The fuck are you going on about? If my first born is stupid enough to get his ass captured in some Deer Hunter like Vietnamese prison then chances are he's fucked and I can't help him. I'm talking about him falling on hard times and needing money for food/rent/car repairs.
>>17013396Thanks anon, I think I might just do that. I was honestly close to buying the Omega/Tudor since you can basically buy it online, but now I think if I were to spend money might as well spend a bit more and make it a Rolex.
Meh, I'll just try to find my Gucci automatic watch than get a Perpetual. It's served me well even if it's probably disrespected by watch elitists.
>>17013398Why the fuck would you even have a kid if you can't provide him with a good life lmfao? Dumb mingers.
>>17013374Get a solid gold Rolex and make a very deliberate show of taking it off every time you're about to beat him
>>17013381>heirloom qualityI honestly can't tell anymore which rolexposters are genuine or satire
>>17013351That's pretty nice for Gucci.
>>17013441Rolex posters are just like their watches. You can't tell if it's a quality piece or a rehashed shitpost
>>17013359Lol You could have bought a ROLEX with what you spent in all those shitters.
>>17013387>I want a watch that can take a beating and look all rightget a geeshawk
>>17013460Already have a datejust
>>17013395could I barter my way out of the jungle hell of Vietnam using this? is this a heirloom quality piece?
>>17013469That's beautiful. Similar watches with illustrations like that on the dial?
Orient is a based poorfag brand. Got the bambino for a wedding to complete the shitter collection. Post your collection. I wanna see some watches, not just shitty arguments

>>17013351Dior Chiffre Rouge
>>17013485I wish there was a way to filter out poorfags, A system like /pol/ where everyone gets an id.
>>17013481Why so many coomer illustrations?
>>17013483That's a downgrade
>>17013486Eh, don't like the black face and the band.
>>17013485I like how you listed the three most obvious brands that middle class larpers buy to try to flex
>>17013496>implying owning a home>nice cars>nice computers>nice watches >is bad...You must be a miserable, I feel sorry for people like you. I mean if I were worried about what other people do with their money I'd be miserable as well.
>>17013481So, nothing affordable.
>>17013492Idk why, but coomer watches had been a haute horlogerie thing since the times of Breguet.
>>17013485don't forget iPhone haters, women haters and nonwhite haters
>>17013501Yeah, that was what I was considering, but I already have a Datejust and I think the Gucci looks cleaner.
>>17013505What's your budget? Do you like a more busy or minimal face? Wrist size?
>>17013239tell me who this guy is already you fucking dogs
>>17013499some microbrands started producing decent vitreous enamel dials in the 1-2k range, it's a step up from there but we'll probably have affordable cloisonné/lacquer dials in a few years
>>17013508any examples of the brands?
>>17013499Russian artisan manufacture, hope they survive the sanctions: https://www.vsdial.com/
>>17013514Nice enough watches, pretty much what I was looking for, but shitty website and Russian so I don't trust it.
>>17013517Sigh, looks like I'll have to settle for the coomer one or save up for the Vacheron
>>17013511I want to say BVLGARI but you're looking at some depreciation. However that is the closest I can think of to the Gucci that is below 20k. I'm sure you looked at the Nautilus and Royal Oaks, however those are way above your budget.Why not just get the Gucci service and enjoy it?
>>17013523>>17013511now im not trying to be a faggot here, but arent gucci watches kinda like fashion watches and not even remotely compareable to something like Rolex?
>>17013524He already regretted buying the Gucci, I'd say he should just enjoy it and chalk it up as a lesson learnt. If he buys something else and regret that then that's more money down the drain.
>>17013524They are much, much cooler than Rolex ever was.
>>17013529That looks pretty horrible.>>17013351This looks okay though but I've seen microbrands that looks better.
>>17013529absolute insanity & derangement
>>17013536Who are they trying to appeal to? Broke skaters, graffiti artists or hipsters?
>>17013537fascists>>17013534for me it's the Mystic Cat diver
I kinda want this lads...
>>17013529>>17013539pretty impressive soulless nu-money chinkcore
>>17013529How dare you buy something that isn't worthless the moment you click "submit order."
this or gold and black faced you fucking niggersgive me an answer pl0xreal niggas only
>>17013549That definitely over black faced.
>>17013527I bought it second hand for $400, don't regret it one bit. Girls complimented it all the time through my college years.
>>17013529Gucci jewelry is pretty underrated desu. People here and on 4chan in general and just contrarian,
>>17013540Do you actually or are you just buying into the jewtube/reddit "watch community" hype train?
>>17013551agreedwhat rollie would you get?
>>17013549Black face is $2k more because of diamond and makes you look like an even bigger nigger. You know the obvious choice.
I'm impressed by Gucci's new high horology collection, ngl: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUNEE6sf8Aohttps://www.hodinkee.com/articles/bees-and-tourbillons-building-watchmaking-buzz-at-gucci
>>17013540Rolex GMT Pepsi ripoff
>>17013558I got the one that you posted first, the Datejust with the goldface.
>>17013559>yfw bateman actually wore a seiko in the movie
>>17013562Yeah, Gucci is actually good despite the memes.
>>17013567so he was a poorfag all along
>>17013559>>17013566fuark bros I want oneHow long is the wait?
>>17013572Seeing that they are the most produced Rolex with the highest profit margins you might not even have to get on a list.
>>17013572I got it in store in NYC. This was back in Jan 2021 though.
>>17013573>>17013574ok bros 41 or 36this is a seamaster 400 on me
>>17013571Supposedly rolex just didn't want their watch featured in the film. So they found something that looked close enough.
Man I want a fucking black bay pro so bad. I hate the retarded watch market.
>>17013589No >>17013567 is a shop, Rolex just didn't want him say the name Rolex. He wore a Ref 16013 and it was mentioned several times in the book. The line, "don't touch the watch," was supposed to be "don't touch the Rolex." But Rolex had a hissyfit and forced them to change the script.
>>17013591Enjoy your thick slab of steel, looks cool at least
>>17013593>in the bookYea, but that's not the movie. In the movie he had a seiko. You can see even in this screenshot that the crown is at 4:00.
>>17013598And just to cement the point, you can see how there isn't a cyclops on the crystal here, and how wide the window is for the day & date just like the seiko.
>>17013588cool thanks anon. I'm goia0jhjng to a local store soondo the sales associates also give blow jobs?
>>17013507>>17013347its a forced unfunny meme
>>17013603Asian massage places are more common than Starbucks.
>>17013564what a stupid fucking comment. it’s obviously a Rolex Pepsi ripoff you subhuman dipshit, did you think you’d applied your watch skills to unveil a hidden truth? go jam your inadequate dick in a Pepsi bottle you potato
>>17013471are you the anon with a entire box full of orients?anyway heres mine small collection, already posted it a couple times so i wont do it again anytime soon
>>17013595Thanks anon, I tried it on and the thickness isn't really that much of an issue, some of it is in the domed crystal so it's nowhere near as bad as my khaki auto chrono. I just hope I can fucking ever get one, people don't even seem to like it that much, definitely nowhere near as much as the bb58 or chrono, but for some reason second hand is already going over retail and there are none available at the AD.
>>17013593They’d probably welcome it now they play up to narcissists with all their AD bollocks, since the Apple Watch took most of their OK CIAO customers and have been left with customers who are desperately trying to signal their superiority to others just like Patrick Bateman and anons on /wt/.
>>17013471orient is legitimately a S tier brand when it comes to shitterseven their "worst" offerings cannot be hated, because its so unique looking
>>17013652It’s just scalping anon, it happens to anything that gets remotely hyped these days, dickheads even tried it with the MoonSwatch.
>>17013540oh looks like they upgraded it to applied indices>$300 for a quartz timexeh
Do people in this thread know that Orient is just Seiko?
>>17013677>just Seiko?thats like saying hamilton is just swatchorient is pretty independent from seiko seiko, it can be argued even more so than the swatch brands because its common for orient to regularly undermine seiko when it comes to value (kamasu vs turtle)they arent even under the same branch in the main parent company
>>17013603>do the sales associates also give blow jobs?you have to give them a blowjob to get on the waiting list
How many straps do you have? Do you switch them up, do you regret buying some?
>>17013318>Already own a Datejust, so would getting a Perpetual be redundant?yes it would, they look very similar>Want something with a big face that's not ostentatious and could be for everyday useif you don't want to be ostentatious or risk getting mugged, don't get a rolex. get a Grand Seiko or something
A while back I posted about getting my great grandpas watch fixed, and it's finally working now. Late 30s/Early 40s Hamilton Endicott. It's all gold but I got leather band in the mail that I can swap too for a less "shiny" look
>>17013727very cool, looks good
>>17013695like 30++a lot of those are cheap colourful natos or leather leather straps with some flaws in them>regretits fine, they are cheap
/wt/, what watch would this man wear?
>>17013745A BALL Engineer Watch
Alternatives to the Royal Oak that you can actually buy without sucking the AD's cock and buying a Jules AP for each one of his 6 wives locked away in Mehmet's Harem?
>>17013359A few nice chronos in there, and that world timer is also cool. But it's pretty one dimensional, no dressy or everyday watches in there, no iconic Kings or Grands either, why?
>>17013752Maurice Lacroix Aikon
>>17013722>get a Grand SeikoBut what if he ISN'T a loser soiboy?
>>17013374I like that strap very much.
>>17013374Get him a Rolex. My dad gave me one when I was 18, and I inherited his when he passed. I'm 36 now, recently sold both to get a down payment on my own apartment. I'm in EU in a country where owning your own house is a big deal. Thanks dad.
>>17013486My god that's so ugly.
>>17013763then he should get a fossil or some armani, don't kid yourself that (You) are not a loser, a rolex won't change that
>>17013695I have like 12, 5 19mm ones for my Weekdater that i switch every few days depending on the mood and clothes i wear, 5 18mm ones for the Penisquartz and the two little dress Seikos and 3 20mm ones for the Cocktail time. I also have 2 more 19mm ones but they are padded and don't fit any of them so they just sit in the box. When i ordered the first batch the guys at cheapestnatostraps got a few of the sizes mixed up so they gave me another order for free after i complained about it.
>>17013775But a Grand S O Y K O will make him a faggot, tho.
>>17013763idk, he can pick something else. but if he doesn't want to be ostentatious or get mugged and he feels like his datejust is too much, he should simply pick anything that isn't a rolex
>>17013801should get a Rolex Basedster Perpetual instead
>>17013752>that you can actually buy without sucking the AD's cockyou want a COPE watch?
>>17013804>Rolex Basedster PerpetualMisfired, boy?
Hello /fa/ im looking to buy a watch:>300-500€>Automatic and open heart>5 atm water resistance>42-44 mm I have found Ingersoll The Jazz (pic rel) that fits the requirements but i don't know much about the brand. Shoud I get that one or do you have any recomendatios?
>>17013818With those requirements and based on your liking this watch i don't think we can find anything better for you, so i'd say go for it. Have you worn big watches before? What is your wrist size?
>>17013809Yes, should have been the S oyster
> You have to wind automatics once the power reserve wears out and it will wear out in a few daysOHNONONONO hahahaha wtf? How is anyone still buying and wearing autos?
>>17013821Yup, had a few fossils that were those sizes. My wrist is 18cm.
>>17013359prices when you bought them compared to now?
>>17013752why is it so ugly bros
>>17013823>What's a winder.duh
>>17013838You mean your mom?
>€37 for a bit of leather with a micron of canvas on topMan, RIOS is a scam, and my wristlet ass needs to use the second-last hole to fit.
>>17013840imagine dickriding for an overrated watch you'll never come close to wearing in your life
so I am contemplating between these 3, I tend to prefer the SUR309, its basically dark blue\black when not under the sun\light and turn blue when its under light and I kinda prefer it that way desu. it costs 200$ (40$ more than the other two).
>>17013860Should be a decent watch. Bought my wife one of the lady SURs and it's been fine. Finish is pretty darn good given how inexpensive it is.
bros when you first started wearing a watch did it take a while to adjust to having it on?i think i have sensory autism. i can't stop being conscious of it on my wrist it's literally like consciously walking except i am consciously wrist wearing
>>17013818if you like it, go for itbut dont be fooled by the German sounding name, this is 100% made in China
>>17013823They work if you wear them, i don't see a problem.
>>17013891You get used to it, so much so that it you will experience the opposite soon, something will be off when you wont be wearing one.
>>17013860Either black or blue, both are nice.
which color of the Casio A700 should I get?I hear the bracelet on the grey one is nicer, is that true?
>>17013921figure out your skin tone. if you have warm undertones you want yellower/goldish. if you're more cool you want silver.black looks like shit unless it's deep winter on a cold outfit
>>17013921Right looks much better and proper retro. Left looks like a faggot watch
Shame the right one has a worse bracelet
>>17013823imagine being too weak to turn a tiny crown around a few times
>>17013300no one cares
>>17013600>you can see No I fucking can't, it's tiny as fuck and out of focus
>>17013374Just get the watch you want to wear. Think of it as a gift to yourself to commemorate your son’s birth and nothing more. And over the years invest in real estate or a business, something more practical than a watch if you want something to hand down to your kid. The Railmaster is cool imo.
>>17013974>The Railmaster is cool imo.Except, like most Omegas, it's too fucking thick. 12.6mm for a no-date watch with only 150m water resistance is just lazy, especially when a little company like Nomos can make a 200m WR no-date watch that's 9.2mm thick.What's worse, they fitted it with the inferior 8806 movement instead of the 8912 that you can find in the Seamaster 300. The 8912 has an independently adjustable hour hand, which is one of the best features you can get in a no-date watch, since it turns it into a handy travel watch.

I know, I know, who would want functional currency worth 100% of its current market value when you can have an old beat up sentimental watch that you have to sell at a loss because it's an emergency? Crazy I know.
>>17014024>99% of Casio owners are now throwing their watches in the bin.why?
How como almost nobody on these threads buy vintages???There are lots of very interesting vintage watches, in very good conditions, and distinctive, for the price of an expensive Seiko.
>>17014008>>17013239Who is this guy?
>>17014008>>17013239who even is this guy?this person has nothing to do with watches or the hobby of watchesstop reposting this image over and overthis is even more unfunny than craigposting, at least that guy actually sells watches
Ah yes the eternal buttblasted and now disgustingly ugly poorfag. sorry it’s not some fag meme like chestergay from your furry porno or whatever shit you redditors watch.
>>17013367Sell that boring schitter and buy a GS desu
>>17014057Yes hello sir would like to buy vintage mubai 15 latkes thank you sir
>>17014057only patricians appreciate vintagesbut thats kinda an ugly vintage
Finally got round to trying this on, think it's just about not too big for me.
>>17014082Good call on the size. It fits well. It's not too big, nor is it the Rolex you actually want.
>>17014074>buy a GSNEVER go Grand S O Y K O
>>17014057That's beautiful. How much is it?
>>17014075Then, don't buy from India, faggot.
>>17014031If it makes you upset, that's on you, friend. Maybe you need to lighten up and stop taking things so seriously. They're just watches.
>>17014075cool it with the antisemitic remarks
>>17013471looking good, id?
>>17014113>They're just watches.its not and thats the problemits literally one autist spamming unrelated images over and over
>>17014103Better than an entry level Breitling lol
>>17014129Grand Seikos are getting expensive. Any GS you can get for the price of that Breitling is not going to have any nice dial work or neat complications.
>>17014142I'm gonna loooooooooom.
>>17014145Buy a vintage one then, while you still can.
>>17014165I'm not going to buy a watch just because of the name on the dial. That watch is objectively boring as fuck.

>>17014177I think in this case he's still be screwed. I mean, he probably paid about 600 dollars in total for those shitters. This isn't like some guy who buys a diaper-full of Omegas when he could have had a Patek or a Rolex (or both).

>>17014177based>>17014188>some guy who buys a diaper-full of OmegasLiteral shitters?
>>17013239so what are we watching?
>>17014196typical casio fan in native environment
>>17013486Damn i've seen some ugly watches in my life and this is probably one of the worst ever.
>>17014188>Rolex or patekWhy is this phrase so common in this thread? The cheapest patek costs double most rolexes, is it because of resale? A base aquanut costs 10x a sub secondhand. They occupy wildly different tiers of watches. Rolex belongs with omega, breitling, iwc, cartier, GO, and entry level jlc.
>>17014209Those brands are both obscenely expensive and unobtainium to the guys in this thread who harp on about them.
>>17014209>Why is this phrase so common in this thread?It's short-hand for either the de facto "best" watch in the entry-level luxury sphere or the "best" watch in the high-end sphere and it covers a really wide range of spending.It's not meant to be taken literally that someone should buy one of those two watch brands' pieces.>Rolex belongs with omega, breitling, iwc, cartier, GO, and entry level jlc.Rolex is the standard, they belong only with themselves. Think about it: when a new Seamaster comes out, the first question is "How does it compare to the Submariner?" but when a new Submariner comes out, the first question is "Is it an improvement over the old Submariner?"
I need San Martin to make a tank clone so I can customize the dial with "SHARTIER"
>>17014209The phrase should probably be >Rolex or Patek or anything in betweensince pretty much anything in that range would be better than a bunch of Omegas.
>>17014209>They occupy wildly different tiers of watches>conflating price with qualityI shiggity diggity
Datejust or OPI want something flashy
>>17014221holy shitrent free!!!rich chads keep winning while the poor eternally seething

>>17014239Get a load of this retard.
>>17014241you're not getting my load you disgusting homosexual poor faggotmy load is exclusive to 9/10 and above girl only
Anyone here actually own a watch, or is it just endless Rolex LARP? The days of /g/ feel like a long time ago now.
>>17014242Nice third world ESL shitpost, I give it -7/10.
>>17014281so around same point as your miserable life?
>>17014280Just have to wade through a sea of tardposting to get to them.
>>17014280>The days of /g/ feel like a long time ago now.The /g/ days were just as retarded, just a different kind of retarded.
>>17014221>I need San Martin to make a tank clone so I can customize the dial with "SHARTIER"holy shit guys i just made a memei'll never ever be able to buy luxury watches ever in my life because i'm a poor jealous retard but at least i made a meme to mock them
I have been obsessed with this thing since I tried it on. I think I am going to take a weekend trip to somewhere where ADs actually have it in stock.
>>17014240but I love the gold dialwhat dial do you suggest?
>>17014294>doesn't realize anon is mocking san martin and not cartierYou're akshually retarded. Legitimately.
>>17014295Buy it anon, the complaints about the thickness seem overblown, it looks fantastic. The quality is there, the price is right. I wouldn't 0ay a cent over msrp but it's worth a qiuck flight to grab one now
>>17014128Should've banned him back when he was spamming My Watches, but nooo, hurr durr you're just jealous of My Watch-Sama just leave him he's a good poster he dindu nuffin. And now you have this.
>>17014209A Calatrava is 30k, the same as a GMT Master and cheaper than a Day Date or Daytona
>>17014209>The cheapest patek costs double most rolexesSo what, cost doesn't determine tier
>>17014339>I wouldn't 0ay a cent over msrp but it's worth a qiuck flight to grab one nowNo, not at all.Wait a year, once the hype subsides. Even at MSRP, the Tudor is expensive. You can get Black Bay GMTs for under 3k USD now. Those things had waiting lists less than two years ago.
>>17014209>Rolex belongs with omega, breitling, iwc, cartier, GO, and entry level jlc.That's just price-wise, though.Rolex, Omega and Breitling certainly occupy the same "Tough watches for tough men" LARP market segment. Cartier unapologetically makes jewelry and doesn't care about Rolex. IWC doesn't know what the fuck it's doing.GO and JLC don't compete with Rolex either. Their niche seems to be more for people who like the engineering of haute horlogerie but don't care about precious metals.
>>17014366>You can get Black Bay GMTs for under 3k USD now.Used?The purchasing power of the USD is evaporating overnight, smoke me if you got em
>>17014295I love this one. Wish it came in a white dial version though.
>>17014373JLC's entire market is autists who cant handle any amount of detailing or decoration and people that went to the wrong boutique accidentally when they meant to buy a VC.
>>17014378*smoke em if ya got em
>>17014383>people that went to the wrong boutique accidentally when they meant to buy a VC.That's kind of funny because VC's reputation has always been them selling gussied-up JLCs at three times the price.
>>17014192What's the name/code of this one
>>17014378Of course used. With hype watches like this, the market floods with inventory pretty predictably and you'll always easily be able to find an example that some guy bought because Instagram told him to and realized he didn't actually like the watch so he sells it at a loss.>Week 1: It's basically brand new, so I'll ask a couple hundred less than MSRP>Week 2: Will listen to all _reasonable_ offers, no lowballers please.>Week 3:Willing to trade up for any steel Rolex plus cash>Week 4:This is where they start to get desperate and realize they've made a huge mistake when they check eBay and C24 and realize the Japs are selling the same watch in the same condition for half MSRP. The seller lowers his price to the Japanese sale price. Here's where you wait a week and offer him 10% off what he's asking. He'll say yes every time.
>>17014339>>17014366Thanks anons.I'm certainly not going to wait a year just so I can hope to save a few bucks lmao. But I will wait probably a month or two to see if my AD gets any in stock. Hopefully this is just a few scalpers trying to cash in on the new release, I doubt it will be anything like the black bay 58 (which is still not available at my local ad) given how much more polarizing it seems to be.
Just got this beauty
>>17014406>But I will wait probably a month or two to see if my AD gets any in stockSee if he will really tell you what his list looks like and what kind of shipments he expects. When the bb58 hype train got going even that had a waiting list for the bracelet version. Maybe with the economy cooling off things will back off a bit but it seems to be on it's way to being one of the most hyped tudor releases ever. Then again rolex doesn't really limit production on tudor, so there is a good chance demand will slow eventually
>>17014408Excellent choice, I liked mine so much I autistically upgraded to the GW-5000 12 months later.
>>17014423Very nice, anon
>>17014408Get some sunlight god dammit, your battery is not full
>>17014456He just got it, it'll have been sitting in a box for the past 6 months and they don't fully charge the battery when making the watch. Also, you'd think LMH would correspond with a third each of the battery's capacity but it's more like L less than 10%, M 10-80%, H more than 80%
>>17014423What is upgraded on it?
>>17014466I know, was just messing with him.
>>17014545Softer rubber, inner case is solid metal, traditional screwback like you see on stainless steel watches. Functionally its identical, same module
>>17013921I have the gold one with the mesh Its great
>>17014545>>17014549>Functionally its identical, same moduleThis. If you're a collector or an enthusiast, it's great. If you're not, it's waste of money.Personally, I found the added weight and thickness annoying. I put the 5000's strap on the titanium-backed S5600 and ended up with a watch that was thin and superlight, but still had the softer, high-quality strap.
>>17014545Like other anon said >>17014549 the rubber is a lot more pliant and comfortable, the inner case and screwback case are steel and DLC coated, "made" in Japan. But apart from that it's functionally identical, slightly bigger and noticeably heavier than the GWM5610
>>17014423>>17014547So is solar worth getting over the regular battery version?Does the solar battery not eventually need replacing?
>>17013239Video basically confirms the reason you can't find fucking Rolex's is because ADs are selling them out the backdoor to their Saudi friendshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkT6cKfXCw8
>>17014584>So is solar worth getting over the regular battery version?>Does the solar battery not eventually need replacing?Solar batteries do need replacing, but whether or not they die depends on how they are charged. If they are kept at H all the time they will last longer than if you let them drain to almost-empty and recharge back to high.They are considerably more expensive to replace than a regular battery.It also depends on how you use the watch. For example, I never use the backlight so I have a G-Shock with a "10 year" battery that's currently on its 14th year of running.Personally, the increased cost of the solar models doesn't really make it worth it.
God I’m hungover. I need a morning beer.
I you had to buy a ~200 euros watch to go with a blue suit at a wedding, what would you pick?
>>17013268>NOOOOOOOOOOO YOU HAVE TO SPEND YOUR LIFE SAVINGS ON A ROLEX >I'M GOING INSAAAAAANE
>>17014655You OK anon?
>>17014655>your life savingskek
>>17013359Damn they're all crapY u do dis?
>>17014598>If they are kept at H all the time they will last longerWell that depends on what kind of battery is in. Back when mobile phones were new tech their early Li-ion batteries were said to be best kept at 40% charge to last the longest. I'm sure the tech has advanced since then so i doubt that still holds true but still it's not as simple as that.
>>17013745None because he's not a sissy
>>17014660If you replaced "Rolex" with "a gold chain" people would appreciate how silly it seems. It's just jewelry. If you have to save up for it, you can't afford it in either case.
>>17014584It's a capacitor, so yes, it does theoretically need replacing eventually. But at the same time solar appeals to me much more than battery, it's technologically quite interesting, and how a solar G-Shock conserves its power is pretty nifty. I've also had an AL-180 for about 10 years now and it's a very basic solar model but it still keeps its charge without any issues.
>>17014671The rechargeable batteries that solar Casios use are pretty primitive. There's no sophisticated power management beyond going to sleep if it's dark. You need to keep them topped up.
>>17014648Orient Maestro. There are other color variants as well.
>>17014662Not all of them. The Bullhead chronos are cool, there is a couple other cool ones as well (the actual first automatic chrono ever made for example) and that World Timer is legit rare.
>>17014691>chronos are*chrono is
>>17014683That's not quite right, they also use the tilt sensor to keep the display on or to wake it after going into power saving mode
75$, should I?
>>17014000Right? It's only a quartz movement but it's designed after the big clock on the front of the building. Look up Union Terminal it's an icon of art deco design and is one of the last remaining buildings kept in such good condition.
>>17014698Looks cool, quartz I assume?
>>17014073based Michel Sardou poster
>>17014687looking sweet thanks
>>17014702I thott it was the gay bassist from queen
>>17014706you mean the who got AIDS or the one who's dead?
>>17014691This is /wt/, we're not here to discuss interesting watches, just LARP.There's a quite a few decent things in that box, a bullhead, a jumbo, a UFO. I've only got one 6139, I can't imagine how much it costs to keep all of those 6138s and 6139s in working order, plus it looks like they've all been reset, which isn't recommended.
this or a rolex?
>>17014722you know the answer
>>17014648Why the fuck would you spend 200 euros on a watch just for a wedding?
>>17014736I wanted to buy one in that price range for a while now, now I just have a specific reason to buy it.
>>17014740Just get a casio
>>17014648Buy a real watch rtard.
>>17014648Tissot PRX, PR100, Courtier, or generic Powermatic. But no shut up and spend $550 on a fucking Hamilton.
What is the best-looking gold casio?
It's so bright and fugly that I like it.
>>17014648Some basic Seiko Quartz
>>17014593>because ADs are selling them out the backdoor to their Saudi friends*Chinese
>>17014683My Lineage has 2 different power saving modes, first it just stops the seconds hand and turns off the display, and after a day or two it stops the other hands at 12 o'clock as well. It still keeps time internally and as soon as it gets some light the hands will whizz around back to the correct time.
>>17014716>it looks like they've all been resetCan you explain what you mean by that?
>>17014707This gives off Daniel Wellington vibes.
