roman numerals or bar indices
left has nicer lugs but is 13mm thick right is 12mm
both are 40mm diameter
left has nicer lugs, right is more legible as a chrono and better subdials markings but left has better moonphase markings. I'm not sure which crown I like more.

no its just watch autism

>This way, the dial features the following numerals: I, II, III, IIII, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII. With this combination, you obtain three identical areas on the dial, each of them using the same kind of numerals. The first third only uses I, the second third is the only one using the V and finally, the last third is the only one featuring numerals with X. This way, you’re balancing the dial with three distinct areas, creating a more elegant and harmonious dial.

A Suwa logo would never appear on a modern mechanical Grand Seiko because mechanical Grand Seikos are made by Seiko Instruments Incorporated, which is the modern day name of Daini Seikosha.


Also, all modern Grand Seiko, Seiko and Credor mechanical movements that have a design lineage dating back to the 1970s are all Daini movement designs. This includes the 7xxx which led to the 7Sxx family, the 52xx which led to the 4Sxx family now used in Credors, and the 68xx family which was recently turned into the Credor micro-artist studio's first tourbillon model.

Suwa is now Seiko Epson and makes quartz and spring drive Grand Seikos.

The idea that Suwa was more important is therefore also quite flawed.

Because they prefer to stick to jerking themselves off about the nature inspirations for their various dials. Don't get me wrong, Suwa does lots of nice dial patterns and textures, but the pretentiousness of the natural world inspiration explanations they give make me laugh.

Also I don't think we should be discounting Suwa in their place of Seikos history. They were the ones that brought the Astron and the quartz crisis (regardless of its fame /infamous). They were Grand Seiko. Daini was not Grand Seiko at the time (though not that it mattered as King was just as good).
And ofc the introduction of Spring Drive.

>> No.15746017

>>15746012
Of course you can't discount Suwa, but Daini were, overall, the better mechanical movement designers and manufacturers. I think Suwa's direction post-quartz itself confirms that this was recognized internally.

I don't think you can really say either side is more important than the other as a result. Also, Daini made what is arguably the best pre-quartz Grand Seiko model in the form of the 45xx.

>> No.15746026

>>15746012
The 35 was a prototype watch that was horribly unreliable and rushed to market in super limited quantity, with the only goal being to be offivially first to market, as CEH was nearly ready to release theirs. The 35 was so bad Seiko had to change the quartz oscillator and circuit board design after the initial batch, and didn't even do a revision number bump when they did it. The first actual commercial Seiko quartz watch was the 38.

Saying Suwa "was" Grand Seiko is incoherent. Both Suwa and Daini made GS branded watches (and both made KS branded watches as well).

this is the only tolerable style of power reserve indicator on a dial. unfortunately, they wrote "power reserve" on it, as if you need to constantly be reminded of what it is at the expense of having a clean dial.

>Daini were, overall, the better mechanical movement designers and manufacturers.
Maybe eventually, but Suwa did all the mainstrean stuff, and Daini did what they did because they were pretty much always trying to catch up. KS in general was a response to GS, 51 series to 83 series, 52 series to 56 series etc, and at the same time Suwa had 62 and then 61 that were in the large majority of Seiko watches from cheapest Seikomatics to GS, and Daini had nothing comparable. It could be argued that starting from Suwa Marvel and Daini Chronos, Daini were always one step behind, only catching up and surpassing Suwa with their last designs before the quartz crisis.
They also always had some weird shit going on in their designs. 45 is brilliant yes, but 52 is half great and half awful (wtf is with the hand winding, just do it normally, it feels like shit and stays engaged when quicksetting the date). 51 is even weirder inside. The brilliance of the 7000 series, on the other hand, is the simplicity and suitability for automated production, which is part of the reason why it kept going and even expanded to mid range watches these days.

>> No.15746172

>>15746146
Both were brilliant, in my opinion. 56 has the unfortunate aging problems, but as I said above, 52 has some bad qualities too. 56 just feels very good to work with and to use, if the calendar quickset and drive wheel pinion are fine. 52 is technically more impressive.

There's something I don't get. On a lot of watches to regulate there's one arm that you aren't supposed to touch unless you have a timegrapher and a second arm you move around for little adjustments. But on some movements like the ETA 2824 and some GS movements, they have both arms and a place to use a screwdriver. What's the deal with that?

Daini were slower in developing new designs, but those designs ended up being better than the Suwa equivalents. Just look at how large a proportion of Suwa mechanical movements all have long term wear issues that make them such pains in the ass as vintage watches, while the Daini equivalent movements have tended to survive much better.

The 52xx has the weird hand-winding thing, but it also doesn't have the long term wear issues the 56xx does, and was generally offered in better adjusted form than the 56xxs were.

The 701x again avoids the long term wear issues of the 613x as well as having flyback functionality in a mass production chronograph movement.

Daini also tended to be even more fanatical about adjusting movements to high accuracy standards than Suwa was, from the Astronomical Observatory Chronometers to often adjusting Daini KS models to GS standards.

I think doing things right is more valuable than doing them first, and I think the well established long term reliability advantage of Daini movement designs is a significant part of why only Daini designs were carried forward into post-quartz Seiko mechanical movements.

This watch is really cool; I feel like it's gonna be the next big thing. Now that people basically can't get a Nautilus or a Royal Oak this might be the next hype watch. It is on the dressy side of thing so I might just be paranoid but I keep seeing these more often in print media already and once John Mayer or somebody like him posts a pic of this it's gonna skyrocket in price. Reminds me a bit of how the (also rather dressy) FP Journe is now three times the price it was just a few years ago.

It is currently my favourite option for about a year now. Every time i go back to the bracelet i start missing the contrast of the black strap and silver case. Also love the lug gaps and dispise these straps that fill them in, looks disgusting and makes the watch disproportionally chunky on the top. Now

That is a whole different category of comfy. I also make sure to propagate leather on divers so i can get more into this cult.

Wow they have really stepped up the metal cases for the casioaks. Now they have a properly integrated bracelet.
It's only attached with the 4 case screws so probably not as robust but it looks good.
Search for 2100 case gen 3

not him but damn these are pretty nice.
I like the I like the cream one on their website.
"In-House Calibre" not too sure how I feel about that. Can't imagine sending this to Glashutte is fun.

It’s no big deal. I sent in my Tangente for service and it cost me around $350 and the whole process took about 5 weeks including shipping to and from Germany. Service interval is approx. 5 years so nothing out of the ordinary.

Well okay ya that's not too bad then. Guess the idea of having to send it to only one place (across the ocean to Germany) is hard to swallow.
But glad to hear it's not bad.

That one not so bad. The negative display on my res casioak is death. Even in daytime. But one press of the light and its fine.

Poorfag here.

I am looking for a Casio watch that has an alarm function. But the alarm should only go on on weekdays.

Does anyone have a recommendation?
