Name a more laughable and overpriced brand than Girard Perregaux? Glashutte Original maybe? Blancpain might be a good candidate too.>that date windowLMAO
anybody own a Ulysse Nardin
congratulations you guys have trolled me into liking JLC. This watch is pure class.

Finally got a bespoke strap for one of my favorite vintage shitters. Life is good anons
I've got to say, this thing arrived earlier today and it's absolutely stunning in person. It looks nice in photos but they don't entirely do the surface finishing justice. I have absolutely no idea how Casio can make the base Oceanus models to the price they do. It's a real shame they're JDM only.
Pick one for my wrist fashion illiterate ass anons
>>17092413I give up on trying to work out when this phone does and doesn't rotate the actual file.
>>17092405Looks really tasteful
>>17092415they're all awful, the two tone submariner homage is especially nasty. get a seiko or a rolex if you have money
>>17092393Can't afford a Patek?
>>17092415None of those holy shit anon.
>>17092428JLC is cope for VC.Get it straight.
>>17092393They’re the only brand making good dress watches until you get to VC and Patek although I don’t know why they insist on making each generation of watch larger.
>>17092374>Name a more laughable and overpriced brand than Girard Perregaux? That’s easy, Patek Philippe.
>>17092482>I don’t know why they insist on making each generation of watch larger.Their customers* demand it.* Screechy nerds on the internet who will never actually buy a JLC one way or the other do not count as customers.
>>17092488I am literally a customer. I would buy a Polaris if it wasn’t 42mm. I won’t buy a Master Control because it’s 40mm. Even my watch would be better if it was 37mm but I realize that you will always be making serious concessions with any watch under $10k, unfortunately.
Had this watch for years and never wear it because I think it looks too feminine, what do you guys think?
>>17092498it's not feminine, just fucking ugly desu
>>17092498That logo at the top is tacky as all hell, jesus.At least it's not just a direct Submariner clone, I guess?
>>17092500Yeah I might just sell it to be fair.
>>17092495I think if i were to get a master control i would go for the older 39mm models having half the power reserve doesn't seem that bad because its an automatic you could just get a winder if you cared that much
>>17092413I'd definitely get one of these if they weren't so big, 38mm case and it would be perfect.
>>17092475VC is cope for Patek
>>17092495You have one (1) watch that you bought used.No, JLC will not listen to you.
>>17092495L2L on a Polaris is 47.6 so still relatively compact
>>17092515It wears on the wrist a little smaller than you'd expect but yeah, obviously the sizing isn't going to be right for everyone. In person it looks fine on mine but if it was even a little bigger I'd be having issues.
>>17092521He doesn't care. It's literally just a number that is making him upset. Hell, if they changed nothing and just SAID it's 39mm, he'd get one and wouldn't even notice.
My late grandfather’s watch. He died a couple of years ago, but I only just found out about it.Bought a new battery and it works.The bracelet and clasp was beyond saving, but I’ll get a new one and I shall cherish the watch.
>>17092549A simple Seiko. It's no grand heirloom but it's a nice, simple piece and the connection is what makes it matter. Hope you enjoy it anon.
>>17092549Very nice anon. I have my grandfather's watch from the 1960s and, even though I don't wear it, I will always treasure it.

Don’t you guys get tired of coping endlessly?
>>17092636Ah, Cartier. It's like Pride Month on your wrist, every day.
>>17092636Guess the gold Reverso was a little too spendy for you, hmm?
>>17092636It’s all they have.
>>17092636>Don’t you guys get tired of coping endlessly?I dunno, man. Posting pictures of your watches to seek validation from anonymous posters on an anime imageboard doesn't seem like the healthiest coping mechanism. I mean, what if they don't like your watch? Worse, what if they don't care? The pain you're running from would probably only get worse.
>>17092651>Ah, Cartier. It's like Pride Month on your wrist, every day.kek
>>17092636It’s easier to cope than to make money. I’d wager 90% of posters ITT do not have a watch better than an Omega, which is hilarious considering how opinionated everyone is ITT about high end watches.
>>17092693>I’d wager 90% of posters ITT do not have a watch better than an Omega,Post yours.
Thoughts on this watch /fa/m? I like the green one but also like the grey one on bracelet.
Thoughts on this watch /fa/m? I like the green one but also like the dark grey one on bracelet.
Just got this Omega 14774. Don’t know much about it but I like it.
>>17092693I have a Tudor and a Grand Seiko, which goes to show you how wrong you are
>>17092636I don't get it, I literally don't understand this watch, when would I ever wear it? I don't go to any black tie events, and wearing it as a casual daily watch looks bizarre.
>>17092709Those are both significantly worse than Omega.
>>17092711Wanna know how I know you’re poor?
>>17092719Better than a swatch? Talk about cope
>>17092711It's a Cartier. You wear them to show other gay men you're interested in fucking. Wearing a Santos means you're a top. Wearing a Tank means you're a bottom.
>>17092724The Japs have never made a good watch and Tudor is Rolex cope, nothing more.
>>17092636>this caused so much cope it derailed the threadkek
>>17092731I bought the Tudor, and then upgraded to a quartz 9f. I have ascended far above your understanding.
>>17092730lmao what a shit tier opinion shows that you don't know shit about watches
>>17092744Oh, it's not an opinion, but the fact that it makes you mad tells us a lot about you.
Ahh another thread of seething poors. It’s better than morning coffee. Why don’t you guys just get a job?
>>17092709>I have a Tudor and a Grand SeikoCan't afford a Rolex?
>>17092783I just bought 10k in I-bonds and I'll buy another gold coin this week when I get paid. If I wanted one. I would buy one
>>17092708Nice brick wall, gay hipster. What are you a gay artist painter?
>>17092787So you can't afford a Rolex. Got it. Don't need your life story champ.
>>17092595Very sexy, except for the crownAnd like you said, Automatic is a huge meme. Never getting one of those again.
>>17092822It's a good looking watch, I approve
>>17092794>>17092783>Wagie larping as a trust fund kidDaddie still won't love you
>>17092851Seething just because you can't afford a Rolex. Sad! Many such cases.
when is Glock gonna make a watch so I can make absolutely everyone seethe
>>17092879>tell me I’m american without sucking my dick cause I’m a homo
>>17092881hell yeah brother
I want to see Amy Lee naked.Also rec me a watch pls.
I want to signal that I'm not a homo so I'll buy this manly watch.
>>17092900Based. Good anti faggot choice. Lgbtqpedos will frown at you for wearing this.
>>17092900It has a built-in gaydar. It seems to be pointing at the wearer now
>>17092910Watches are dick magnets, by all means go ahead and wear a manly rough and rugged tool and watch all the fairy bottoms flock to you like flies to honey
>>17092900Do you think having a big ugly watch compensates for your tiny penis?
dabs on all of /wt/
>>17092968I'm sorry, you were saying?
>>17092950My penis is average, nobody care about it's size.
>>17092977Can I get a reference number?
Even though my omegay has boogers on the dial, I still love it
>>17092972looks shit, way too big.
>>17092707I’m liking the green. Does that have a bracelet option or just the leather strap?
>>17092972>>17092984Looks great when it's not on the wrist. I'm not sure if everyone is just buying the models that are too big or what but it looks terrible.
>>17092978Of course, chief!W216H-1AV
>>17092990yeah tank watches all look great alone mostly, but they have to be kind of small on the wrist or they look dumb.
>>1709299215 bucks?! That's really decent.Thanks, anon!
>>17092367didn't know this was the big bulky ugly watch general
>>17092990People do tend to buy a large when they should get a medium. (And sometimes the interesting combinations are only available in larger case sizes.)I think in the example you posted, the guy was actually comparing sizes, rather than showing a wrist shot of his own watch.But regardless of the wearer, when comparing watch to watch, the Reverso is superior to the Tank.
>>17092990The LC tank wears a lot smaller because of the "lugs" being integrated the way they are, whereas JLC has more normal lugs. You need to size way, way, WAY down on a Reverso for it not to overtake your wrist unless you have pretty big wrists.
>>17092999We tried Piaget Altiplano general, but it got no replies.
>>17093000The bulk hurts. I have a small-ish sized wrist (~6.75in) and every Reverso except for a medium monoface felt like an unstable block of steel when I tried them on. It's just a really weird watch on the wrist that will just flat out not work for certain people depending on their wrist shape. I agree that the Reverso is a better watch but you can still get tanks that have JLC movements or Piaget ultra-thin movements. That's good shit.
>>17092997Yep. A great price. It's a nice size, not tiny like the terrorist watch, and not big and chunky. Lightweight. Strong, durable, and nice and clean looking. It's my fav casio.
>>17093012>you can still get tanks that have JLC movements or Piaget ultra-thin movements. That's good shit.I know you used to but I'm not sure if that's the case anymore.The Tank LC I used to have had an F. Piguet movement in it but it was from the late 70s.The only Cartier I can think of that uses a Piaget movement is the Drive Extra Flat which uses a 430P (manual wind, two-hand) which is also used in some Altiplano models.
>>17093012The new Reversos have a curved baseplate. The lugs don't jut straight out anymore and it has improved wearability immensely.
>>17092707I wish green on bracelet was an option
>>17093071You can always do it yourself. Buy two, swap the bracelet and strap, sell the one you don't want.
>>17092853Will this logic ever be defeated?
>>17092900>fuck off huge GMT hand>compass bezel
>>17093143>Will this logic ever be defeated?It's self-reinforcing, so no.
>>17093032>I know you used to but I'm not sure if that's the case anymore.It's a little confusing because of branding reasons I suppose, but pic related which I consider the best tank currently on offer uses an "8971 MC" movement, which is actually just a JLC 846 used in some Reversos.
>>17093158Lol, that is confusing indeed. In the old days, Cartier freely copped to using outside movements. Hell, they even boasted about how good the movements they sourced were.Now, everything has to be in-house, which means they simply lie about doing the thing that they've always done.
>>17093162It’s just standard Richemont obfuscation. I don’t know why they do it because a JLC movement is a selling point. They even do it with the Vacheron Fiftysix which has a movement based on…a Cartier 1904. When there are plants like ValFleurier churning out movements, distinctions like “in-house” lose all meaning unfortunately.
>>17093143It’s undefeatable, that’s why people still get so upset by it.
>>17093165There's also a lot of instances where the overlap is inevitable. All ALS's movements are made in Glashuette and all JLC's movements are made in Le Sentier, but for all the other brands (VC, Cartier, Panerai, IWC, Piaget, etc) they have their movements made to varying degrees by ValFleurier or each other.If it goes through ValFleurier, though, it will be made along a specific architecture that will be easily traceable.Piaget, for instance, makes their own movements, but also sources movements from JLC and Cartier via ValFleurier. Piaget then turns around and sends other movements to Cartier. Cartier makes some of their own movements but also gets some movements from ValFleurier.To mapit all out would require a lot of red string.
Is the B640WB /fa/ approved? or is it to faggy?
>>17093178How is it legal to say a watch has an in-house movement if it was designed, produced and potentially assembled and decorated by a totally different company? Am I going insane or does this shit make no sense?
>>1709316556's movement was used by cartier, but it wasn't developed for them. the vc is assembled, finished and regulated by them. AP even uses movements by JLC. 56 is a cool watch, btw its caught my eye before, i like sector dials
>>17093190the swiss are nasty cunts
>>17093190The watch industry is one big scam and the Swiss are the worst.
>>17093165>obfuscationwhat does this mean?(i'm a Rolex owner btw)
>>17093181I saw a girl wearing one once....she was a jogger if that helps
>>17092709lmao why would you post 2 brands worse than Omega.
>>17092707The Ginza ia the best, shame it was limited. Then new patterned ones aren't bad either.
What is the price range above which returns rapidly diminish wrt finishing, movement, etc?
>>17092708I like it as well, the dial looks nice.
>>17092636I know they must look better irl but the dial of tanks in pictures always look so fucking flat and plain. Like a $5 watch with a print on it.
WAYWT /wt/ bros?>>17092405Where did you get this from? I love the second hand, the whole thing has loads of character.>>17092549Really nice watch Anon, wear it in good health and take good care of it. I really dig those older quartz Seikos, have a couple myself.
>>17092415the one in the leather is the most innoffensive but I bet its 41mm+ the diver could look ok on a nato or a mesh but I bet its not an auto and it is only 100m so it also fails on being a respectable watch
any other protrek chads here?
Let me guess, you need more?
Flieger-B watches with a champagne/cream dial?
What do you guys think of this Chinese beauty? I'm addicted to shitters, but it does look nice

What kind of impression does wearing a casio give off if it's combined with £1000 sports jackets?
>>17093677That the wearer doesn't belong in a 1k sports jacket, or perhaps they forgot what they had on their wrist before they headed out
>>17093674>t. off to the AD to see where he is on the waiting list.
>>17093677That the wearer is trying to affect a look of being more middle- or working-class.
>>17093677that they cant afford a Rolex and bought their jacket at a thrift shop
>>17093653>Batmanthr AD didnt let you on the waiting list for a Pepsi, big boy?
>>17093690That's a good point. If that £1000 jacket is not tailored to the wearer, then it shouldn't count as being worth that much. They probably got it second-hand or off the rack at some bargain place.
>>17093692>coping so hardIt's OK, anon. It really is. It's just a watch. It doesn't mean you're not a good person because you can't afford one.
I bought a Citizen BN0150 for 130 euro, but it turns out it has a bit of vertical bezel play (tiny amount but it's there and it will causes a click when you press on it).I'm planning to return it, but still debating internally whether I should keep it. It's beautiful otherwise, and I got it for a pretty good price. I'm also sure I won't pay attention to the play too much. But I'm also not 100% in love with the aesthetics to ignore it easily.
>>17093701It's out of production. If you put vintage Rolexes on that tier list, then any modern Rolex caps out at D-tier.
>>17093698>i-its basically a Pepsi
>>17093709Anon. We get it. You can't afford one.
Did >>17093653 just give /wt/ a seizure? Surely others have posted nice watches before. It can't all be poorfags fuming, can it?

>>17092374More like Retard Shiteraux.
My alpinist came in. Very happy with it
>>17093718Understand that, no, we aren't used to people posting Rolexes, despite it being the largest Swiss brand. Certainly not Daytonas, Day Dates or GMTs, just some DJs and Subs. The posters who actually post expensive watches, like lawyer anon and vintage chrono anon, don't post Rolexes.Years of "can't afford a Rolex" has completely melted /wt/'s collective mind and the thought of anyone here having one causes irrational anger.

>>17093765He’s a chubby tabby who likes to sleep under the covers. He’s a good boy.>>17093767That’s for inner compass bezel rotation. It doesn’t have an escape valve. The crown is screw down which is nice considering it’s a field watch. Probably wouldn’t do more than jump in a lake with it while /out/
>>17093732Yeah ultimately as long as someone's posting in good faith it's not an issue, it's just so rare to see Rolex discussed as anything other than a worn out way to try and bait people.
>>17093804>it's just so rare to see Rolex discussed as anything other than a worn out way to try and bait people.Frankly, that goes with anything.You can't talk about Omega or basically any other brand without the thread getting spammed with "Rolex cope"
It's ALL about cope. If i ever start making watches the brand name will be COPE.
>>17093833What watch is that, anon?COPE!
>>17093833The rehaut will be engraved just like RolexCOPECOPECOPECOPECOPE
COPE GMT LORD XIV
>>17093840With a patented perpetual copelender complication.
>>17093701excellent taste anon
>>17093845I'd like it more without the cyclops but that's real nice either way.Mechanicals are nice but it's also cool to see companies try out different mechanisms.
>>17093856>It's also cool to see companies try out different mechanisms.Past tense. Those have been discontinued for a while now. At one point, quartz movements were hyped as the next frontier in luxury watches (So thin! So accurate! Batteries last years!) but once the Asians started making them for pennies, then mechanical movements went back to being king in the luxury segment.
>>17093858Yeah I'm aware unfortunately.Thing is there's more you can do than 'just' a quartz timepiece. I recently picked up an Oceanus that's basically just pretending to be a dumb watch. Time sync to BT or radio, auto hand alignment adjustment, independently driven hands that park the seconds hand to save battery in the dark and spring it back to perfect time when you pick it up again, all that stuff. The amount of under the hood cleverness going on reminds me of why I like mechanicals, it's that same feeling of wonder at the elegant execution of some complex under the hood sophistication to deliver something seamless.If Casio can do that for a few hundred with super nice finishing I'd love to see what crazy shit could be done going further in the real luxury bracket. A quartz watch doesn't have to be 'just' a quartz watch.But I think I'm off topic at this point anyway.
>>17093858Too bad really. In my opinion quartz with sweeping seconds hand like Bulova precisionist, GS spring drive, or one of the rare few others like those hand full of Casio's and Citizen's should have been the next step. Batteries have slowly become better and with solar or eco-drive I really can't see reduced battery life being such a huge drawback.Not to mention it's much easier and cheaper to add fancy looking complications and like >>17093858 said there's smart stuff you can do with quartz that can't be done on mechanical watches.
tried out pic related today, why did it look so much smaller than a 37mm military-style Seiko 5?
Are there any fitness/outdoors use case watches which aren’t Bluetooth smartwatches? Not sure if I’m being retarded trying to distance myself from smartwatches.
>>17093878I swear pic related looked more like a 39mm piece on my wrist and I don't have enough of an eye for proportions to understand why
>>17093878>why did it look so much smaller than a 37mm military-style Seiko 5?Because it's a smaller watch. It's got a 19mm bracelet and very short lug to lug length.It's also slightly smaller than 36mm diameter. Rolex just rounded up in their specs.
>>17093861>>17093866It is too bad, but it's kind of a moot point now since "no one needs a watch anymore". Of course, your phone can do anything that any watch can do. The watch is a luxury piece now and one of luxury's hallmarks is hand-craft.ALS is revered for what it is in large part because of the wonderful hand finishing of the case and movement. Does any ALS owner really care that much about a difference in accuracy of 3 sec/day vs 6 sec/day?
>>17093856i didn't like the cyclops at first either having worn it for over a year now i miss it when wearing a different watch. the legibility in general is extremely good which cam to me at least as a surprise given the gold hands on gold dial>>17093858and now the asians make mechanical movements for pennies
>>17093886>The watch is a luxury piece now and one of luxury's hallmarks is hand-craft.This is true but also kind of dumb given that machines are capable of much better precision. Just imagine watches with microscopic details on the dial, for instance it wouldn't be impossible to inscribe words that would only be seen as texture with the naked eye but could be read when putting it under a microscope. It's pointless sure, but I'd also call products with such small details luxury.
>>17093861>I'd love to see what crazy shit could be done going further in the real luxury brackeWell there is Grand Seikos 9F Series and Citizens a060 and 0100 movements.
>>17093896>and now the asians make mechanical movements for penniesThat's true, but along the lines of what >>17093886 said, it's the finishing that counts. Cranking out movements is easy. Taking the time to perfect them is harder.
>>17093029the real screws are nice too
I want a datejust.
>>17093810>You can't talk about Omega or basically any other brand without the thread getting spammed with "Rolex cope"Yeah I wonder why
>>17093942Great set. I really liked the mid size version of that Seiko quartz, too bad they stopped making them.
>>17093955I have to say, from those pictures I prefer the dial on the Omega for the red/orange and beige/cream/champagne/silver or whatever you want to call them. The date on the bottom also creates more symmetry than on with the DJ having it on the right. The look of the case, bracelet, hands and indices still looks better on the OP imo, but still I can see someone who wants a date complication buying that red dial Seamaster over a DJ.
Thoughts on this watch?
>>17093988Can't afford a Nomos?Also, the subseconds is way too close to the center of the dial.
>>17093988>it's a Nomos with none of the redeeming qualitiesDon't.
>>17093955omega really fucked up the proportions on this one
>>17094016The dumbest thing was to switch from teak dial to sunburst dial.

>>17094039Gm2100 for the working man w a sex life
>>17093988It tells the timeIt looks alright
>>17094136Messer also means measurer, the one who measures. So 'time measurer' or 'the one who measures time'.
can anyone ID this watch? first impression seiko 5 but not sure
>>17094149My first impression was a 5 also, but upon closer inspection you'll notice that the '5' isn't actually where it's supposed to be (under the Seiko logo) but on the bottom. It's not a 5 but it could be an LM, Lord Matic, so it could be this one.
Looking to buy a vintage Omega. Does anyone have any tips or guides on buying one without getting ripped off?I have my eye on a vintage Seamaster, but not sure what to look for.
>>17094161Probably this case but with a black dial. I'm almost certain it's a Lord Matic of some sort.
>>17092405You had a strap made for that nice watch and this is what you came up with? Fuck this place.
>>17094136Literally german transation of Chronometer
hey /wt/, is the invicta pro diver a good entry level choice?
>>17094171What decade is this from?I wouldn't buy it just because of the bracelet (it's molded) that screams 80/90s to me aka the worst period for Omega.IMO only 50s/60s Omega have SOVL, but they sell around 2 or 3k now.
>>17094211You can always get another strapDoes look kinda of that era, but it is still fairly timeless
So sugess now has an el primo homage. For a moment I thought that this watch would be the most desirable budget mechanical chrono, since it has a 12h totalizer for the chrono. I have never been more wrong, because sugess has added to this watch something I did not think is possible, they added a subdial that's even more useless than the 24h subdial. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the 12h subdial.
>>17094171Is that seller called Closer? If it is run away, not sure what the scam is but I think money laundering. Had a bad experience with him, check the reviews.
>>17094250Those saw blade minute marks are awful enough to pass on it
>>17094250>a subdial that's even more useless than the 24h subdialI'm still waiting for a 24-minute subdial...
>>17094209Is there a quartz movement that doesn't hold up to chronometer specifications?
>>17094279>Is there a quartz movement that doesn't hold up to chronometer specifications?Yes, plenty.You do realize that quartz and mechanical movements have different standards right?
>>17094285No I did not know that, interesting.
>>17094289Fair enough.The main difference between quartz and mechanical movements in terms of their accuracy is that mechanical movements are susceptible to rate changes based on position (face up, face down, crown up, crown down, and so forth) while quartz movements are susceptible to rate changes based on temperature. So quartz movements aren't tested in various positions, while mechanical movements don't need to be tested in as many temperatures. It goes without saying the standard for quartz is tighter than for mechanical. (+/- 15 sec/month vs -6/+4 sec/day, respectively)You may have heard the term "thermocompensated" before when talking about quartz movements. That is required for a quartz chronometer. Basically the movement checks the temperature and slows itself down or speeds itself up accordingly.
>>17092393I like it
This watch is so gorgeous it nearly makes me reconsider my aversion for wooden watches. Also, are Orient Bambinos pretty good? I've seen good reviews, and since I'm strapped for cash I might make it my next addition.
For me, personally, its R O L E X
>>17094250>the 12h subdialwhat movement is that even?
>>17094252>vintage watch>not getting ripped offpick one. if you want a cool vintage but not actually vintage Omega you can get them on aliexpress.
>>17094316The crown is too small, the date window frame is too thin and the indices look a bit cheap. At least the case is made of metal and not wood, so it's not actually a wooden watch. It's still a shitter though. I was eyeing their watches a few years ago, i liked the idea of a marble dial, but i decided to buy myself a Seiko and i'm glad i did so now.
>>17094326>got the tattoo>still only has an entry-level model.thanks for the laugh anon. where'd you find that gem?
>>17094345It's funny because that's what the poors do, they buy the cheapest shitter with the logo and turn it into a totem. Same poorfags will try and pimp out a base level Mercedes with decals and bullshit
>>17094345>>17094352the explorer is still the best looking rolex though
casio/gshock brosWhat’s the best, smallest square watch which has solar and is not bluetooth? Also not sure if I need anything better than resin desu.
>>17094362>the explorer is still the best looking rolex thoughDebatable. It's not as gaudy as the Yacht-master II or as boring as the Sub, though. That's for sure.
>>17094399Casio G-Shock GWM5610Standard, square size, nice and thin, Solar, MB6, no BT.>Also not sure if I need anything better than resin desu.You don't. Resin is fine.
>>17094399imagine owning a digital watch like a fucking child LMAO
>>17094362the only reason the explorer is popular is so people can pretend they didn't just buy the cheapest rolex. OP's look way better
>>17094417Is he the guy who makes those depressing hatsune mike songs?
>>17094209that makes no sense. what does measuring have to do with knives. silly germans.
>>17094416You're the childish one here. What Susie says of Sally says more of Susie than of Sally.
>>17094444"Messen" is "to measure""Messer" is both "knife" and "thing that measures". You have to know contextually which is which.
>>17094417Which model is this? I really dislike the straps, it’s a shame they don’t have silicon or NATO on those.
>>17094450>contexti'm starting to understand why it took you guys 14 years to build a regional airport
>>17094460>build a regional airportwait...when did we do this?
looking to buy a new watch, which one boys?
Talk me out of a digital Frogman they look so FUNCTIONAL
>>17094492I really like them but they are fucking huge. Hope you have big wrists.
>>17094483TudorOmega is a shit brand
>>17094483Do you travel to different timezones more than you time things or vice versa?
>>17094483>moonwatch cope vs Rolex copeWhy on earth would you limit yourself to these despicable choices?
Parents bought me a Tag Heuer Formula 1 for university graduation, not sure I would be a fan of a quartz watch but definitely nice to not have to set it every time I wear it, especially as it's not my daily. Fit and finish is nice.
>>17094492They look bad compared to any square watch, otherwise I’d agree if you actually needed all of that.
>>17094508what would u suggest?
Watches that give a high taste but secret operator vibe?
>>17094508Every. Single. Time.
>>17094483That's a really weird Speedmaster. Still better than the Great Wall of China Tudor Slabside GMT.
FUCK I have Covid, bros.What whatch to get for the lengthy two weeks isolation?
>>17092415Jesus no. Those Swiss military things are fucking terrible. Victorinox isn't even that expensive and is genuinely a great swiss brand, just go for actual victorinox instead of whatever knock off garbage that is.There's nicer divers out there too.
>>17094539Something that has a proper calendar and not just three hands.
>>17094539Where still has 2 week isolation rules?
>>17094211the cal 565 would be mid-late 60s. no idea if the bracelet is original but i think they did come on them sometimes
>>17092415just don't wear a watch
