Quite a bit of them on the Bay, 90% are indian specials though.

I guess you can ask the seller to add a movement pic, and worst case and or if it turns out not to be a 2824 (or a real 2824) just open a claim on ebay. Since right now they are going full asshole mode on the sellers with the new policies.

They were a good deal when you could get them for $30.
They're bottom of the barrel chinese fakes, made with the cheapest materials and no quality control. They just change the "Rolex" to "Bagelsport" so that it doesn't count as a fake.

I agree with you on the comfy part, smaller and thinner watches really feel nice on the arm. But i think 32mm is too small. 34~38mm is more or less the area you should be looking in.

Yes. Good build quality, decent looks, display caseback which is neat if it's your first mechanical.
The strap it comes on isn't super good, so it's worth changing it down the line (super easy to do yourself if you buy a strap online).

The thing with anti-reflective coatings is that the better they are the less you see it. That's why I hate that some shit companies like IWC use "AR" coatings that make themselves very visible because they are bright blue but actually barely diminish the reflections at all. It's like they're trying to show off the fact that the crystal is coated and by doing so they forget the whole point of why they're coating it to begin with.

Anti-reflective coatings are really cool, they've advanced a lot in both effectiveness and durability over the last few years for use in optics and I think some watch brands are using the same very high quality coatings. It's amazing when you look at a watch that has a really good coating on it and from some angles the crystal just disappears and it seems like you could reach out and touch the dial itself.

I think the bracelet is the safer choice, it looks really good on a bracelet. I think the right leather strap could work but even then the shape of the lugs makes it looks a little bit strange.

I haven't really checked in several months but definitely accurate enough that I don't notice. Last I checked it was about +5 s/day.

It seems like a lot of people complain about their 6R15 movements not being super accurate but I think it's just that Seiko is pretty lazy regulating it since their official stated specs are only +25/-15 s/day. I think it's easily capable of better than that so if you happen to get one that isn't that great from the factory you should be able to regulate it to be very accurate and it will stay there.

Isnt there a Sarb with a white textured dial as well?

>> No.53333978

Well both of those watches come in white and black dial variations, so there's a white dial SARX013. But I think you're probably thinking of the SARB065 cocktail time.

It's huge AND he used wide angle distortion to make it look even bigger

I want a kind of budget watch, now i have an SNK809 which i think is a bit small but i still like it. Now i want something good looking and im asking for something under $120. Is the one on the picture something to get? I do also like it to me automatic but its not a must be.

Bagels look nice from a distance but read reviews. Seems like really poor quality control and definitely don't look at it under a loupe.

I have a bagelnaut. It's alright I guess but the movement looks like shit and from up close there's lots of shitty finishing and little flaws. I would say it's definitely worse than a Seiko 5 overall, get it if you want a shitty chinkwatch for some variety, but don't get it if you expect it to actually be decent.

>> No.53334258

Im not recommending against it - some people have had great luck with them, just saying do research and buy from someone that will replace it for you if you get a lemon

I dont really like the round size. But it looks kind of good quality. How much does it cost and where can i get it.

Like $60-$80 on aliexpress. It's really bottom barrel shit though honestly, it looks decent enough if you don't look too closely but it's not what I would call quality.

/wt/, I love rotating bezel, but I hate the divers' look. Also I prefer thin, bezel, the thinner the better. What are my options for under 200 burgerbucks?

>> No.53334566

A rotating bezel basically defines the diver style, so you mean you just don't like some divers.

>> No.53334575

What about internal rotating bezels like supercompressor style divers or the Seiko Alpinist or that Sinn GMT watch with a 24 hour internal bezel or probably lots of other internal-bezel watches I can't think off offhand.

Indeed, it looks like bezel=divers in modern vernacular, but it really does not have to be. Lot's of komandirskies come with a bezel, but those just look horrendous.

Internal bezels would be fine, except they all fall out of 200 range.

Is the sarb035 cream dial closer to silverish or white?

>> No.53335600

Cream. It looks mostly white under some lighting and sort of yellowy under other lights.
Those photos should be pretty reasonably color-accurate and you can compare the dial color against the pure white paper in the background. Ignore the shitty product photos on Amazon that make the dial look disgusting bright yellow, it's a pretty subtle color and it looks good. Also this thread is going to 404.

>> No.53335693


Yeah see thats exactly the problem I was having. All those pictures on amazon and ebay appear to be super yellow and its gross

Does cream make it look more vintage?

I wouldn't call it vintage, when I think vintage I think of silver dials or more of a slightly brown white rather than cream. Stuff like pic related.
