its a certain kind of strap made of nylon (usually, there are leather and such variants but if one only says nato, it is probably nylon)

The sentiment that watches did not really advance or change much will ring even more true when it comes to Rolexes I feel.
100 years ago, yes it'll be considered a very advanced timepiece, 50 years ago, the Submariner and Explorers were more or less introduced, so perhaps not so much anymore.

nah man, they would be amazed at the scale of production for mass produced watches. Modern production of any kind would blow someones mind from 100 years ago. They would be more willing to accept the quality loss of mass production because they arent spoiled/jaded by it like we are.

>> No.49101318

>>49101211
they do stack up pretty well but it does sorta depend on which watches you compare

your SARB would be in the upper tier when it comes to water resistance (for a dressy piece) and accuracy/reliability, but nothing "AMAZING HOW DID THEY DO THIS" to them, if we're talking about 50 years anyway.
100 and it'd be quite a marvel to them, but probably not unimaginable besides for being so small and automatic yet so good.

but really, the first rolex submariner was introduced over 60 years ago. that had 100m water resistance and probably a relatively decent accuracy (I actually can't quickly find info on that right now)
had no date complication tho.
so well, your SARB would beat a sub 60 years ago, technically, in some ways.

yeah, give them a rangeman with all the things it does and they'll think you're magic

works with a lot of other things really, the people of the past would respect the things we take for a given or even frown upon
while the things we think are exquisite might seem a bit disappointing to them
go show some "soulless" (according to some) 3D animation to the people who animated all the classic disney movies and they'd cream their pants, etc

All the watches belong to the same family in its large offering variety. The three-dimensional feature of the dials is a reminder of the layers of space and time between the present and 2075.

I can't remember what hoops you need to jump through but I know it costs a small fortune to be a member and they are limited at like 450 members, however apparently people will steal all the specially branded club 33 shit from the exclusive restaurant or buy the exclusive items and resell them (cause they get 2-4 times what they paid if they paid at all) which is all a big no-no and if Disney finds out they revoke your membership.

Its all over the top and totally excessive, but you get cool shit like getting a tour guide that doubles as a fast-pass for everything and free tickets to take friends and family to the park with.

My first "real" watch was a Seiko SKX007, given to me by my watchfag cousin back in 2009 after I graduated high school. It hasn't spent a day off my wrist except for servicing earlier this year. I really love this watch and I figured a JDM Seiko would be a natural progression for me; I was originally thinking of the SARB033/35.

That being said, ever since I came across the Orient Star Classic I've been really conflicted. I personally prefer the domed crystal and the triangular applied indices on the Orient, and I think a power reserve indicator would be really neat, especially when I'm juggling two automatics. I also find most of the SARB designs (except for the Alpinist) to be kind of staid and a bit boring. But then again, the Seiko's crystal is sapphire, and it has a higher water resistance rating (10 ATM vs 5 ATM for the Orient). I know NineBall shills a lot for Orients and the rest of /g/ shills for Seiko. I don't know which I should go with.

That's been one of the things holding me back. At $600 I was kind of fucking expecting it to be sapphire.

Although, after 6 years of daily use, my SKX007 has just a few very minor scuffs. And considering the Orient will not be subject to the same kind of abuse (ie outdoor activities and physical labour jobs before I was qualified to work in an office), would the mineral crystal really be that big a deal?

OK, the crystal code is 300V05GNS0. That's a 30mm hardlex crystal that has a silver ring in it. CousinsUK has that exact part for £15.95, which is pretty expensive but it's a Seiko part rather than a third party copy. I'm not sure what they charge for postage to Finland.

I'm conflicted /g/.

I really like handwinding watches, i love my dad's Unitas 6497 movement and I would wind it up everyday while I was still living with him.

I love the clickly sound it makes while being handwounded and it looks nice.

The problem is, handwinding watches are kinda expensive and my budget is only 500$.

I'm thinking of buying a steinhart nav b uhr handwinding but it's kinda big and thick. I think I can pull it off with my 7 inch wrist but I don't know.

On the other hand, I absolutely love the look of hamilton jazzmaster day/date. But the movement is kinda boring. Yes I know you can handwind an ETA 2824 but it doesnt feel the same. It's too smooth and not clicky at all.

You might find this pic useful for reference.

The Seiko 5 is 37mm, the Orient Defender is 42mm, and the Steinhart is 47mm. I think you might want to stick to the 44mm. The only reason I decided on the 47mm is because I have 8.5" wrists, so it looks almost normal on me. The automatic versions are less expensive and also have hand winding.

b) Wont need winding often, as its a pain in the ass, and I always forget to do it
c) Is below $200

Well, that. But as far as just the looks go, I probably wouldn't wear full gold but two tone watches are often fucking neat.

Not like most people can afford either if we're talking about real gold and luxury brands, so...wouldn't even be too shameful.

Smart watches are actually cool but have yet to get to a level where most people here would want one. They have practically no water resistance, and need to be charged typically once a day, which causes a lot of people in /wt/ to frown upon them, however not everyone does as evidenced by the GWR users in this thread.

Only the apple watch triggers me slightly cause its overpriced as shit. Even the Urbane, arguably the best looking smartwatch out right now, is $100 cheaper

This may be how it is with plebs, but not necessarily normalfags in general. There are plenty of normies who can figure out that Patek or Audermans Piguet are both a whole level above Rolex (though they might not recognize Lange). Even among the cellphone-as-a-timepiece crowd in my office, everyone knows and parrots "Patek is #1".

Frankly, you should not be worried about the opinions of anyone who would rank a Patek Phillippe below a Rolex. They are clearly not important enough to impress.

How do they manage to keep the interval between each tick of the gears and such constant in mechanical watches? Don't they run off a coiled spring?

pass the energy from the coiled spring into another spring on a wheel that oscillates back and forth and locks the main spring at certain points to create a driven oscillation.

http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/oscdr.html

relevant simplified physics. hooke's law applies to main spring but the delta from fully wound to unwound is a fairly minimal degree of force. this means the force driving the oscillation is practically a constant as it unwinds.
