kek

Though if you're referring to the kind of piece i'm looking to buy, i've been trying to take the Seiko to get serviced for quite a while and much before i was considering that.

Yup.

>>55024723
Now you see, you said you wanted to avoid Skagen-tier scams, but then you post one.

Vintage and handwound watches are easily sub-100 even sub 75$ easily for great pieces.

>>55024796
Clever boy.

But the prices are rising for good pieces.

Now a couple of anons might be assblasted, but with dat wristbone i had to wear it a lil off.

Simple gold/steel case, with a white dial can work with a lot of things. Or you can pull of interesting shit with vintage funky Seiko's like the Vanac and Advan models.

Hamilton Thin-o-matic, vintage models should be around 34 or 35mm.

Or a shitload of other vintage watches that can be there, for much cheaper.

Mine are about 7.2~

But some watches wear very oddly and somewhat uncomfy on me because of the large wristbone, so i wear them on it or slightly below it.

To start with, vintage slav watches like Poljot,Slava and Raketa. Will usually work without servicing for a good number of years. Vintage swiss pieces are another option. Most of them come with 18mm lugs, Soviet watches rarely come with anything but 18mm.

Maybe you could get a decent looking Poljot 3133 for slightly above the 200$ mark.

And not all vintage watches need to be serviced immediately.

Seems like an 80's design.

But as far as the size is concerned that's the point of watches in the past, they are smaller and the don't get in your way.

1) Cheap automatic chronographs, or cheap mechanical chrono's in general. Interesting complication at a moderately affordable prices. Cheaper and new watches with smooth sweeps like Accutrons,Cosmotrons, Elenix, high beats, and SD.

Make movements and watches that more slim small to be more akin to older watches. (For example, my LM special is close half the thickness of a Seiko 5)

2) Simple, nice looking designs instead of Richard Mille instrument master tier.

Follow simple elegant design lines, some vintage some new and make not too overly complicated watches. (Why do you think normies like DW? shit looks nice a simple)


A)As a continuation of 1), crowns that support multiple functions like a single crown (No extra pushers) single register chronograph.

B)too wide of a question, but have more manufacturers use solid or hollow endlinks instead of curved and use proper fucking lugs.

There's a reason they are recommended.

Now it's time to consider what kind of slav watch do i want next.
