I tried to apple watch today, stupid store demo. The build quality and screen were nicer than I expected. The stupid heartbeat function was a lot more powerful than a vibrating alarm. It felt close to a dual shock controller.

I would buy if I did cardio, seems like a nice device and a step towards the future.

They do good low and very high end quartz.
And good movements in general.

15450 in steel is definitely one of APs best contemporary watches. Though it and the 15202 are pretty much the only contemporary APs worth a damn.
Pretty gaudy in gold and anyone who tries to pass a 15400 in gold as a dress watch is clearly the ROO demographic.

>> No.53813944


Yup, I'm a poorfag, but there are a lot of watches that are a lot more expensive than this one that I respect and admire, and would like to have.

Just cause your shit royal oak is expensive doesnt make it not tasteless or nice. Its ugly as fuck bro, and tacky. If a less respected company had put out that same design first, it would have been rightly shunned.

An ugly and gaudy watch is an ugly and gaudy watch no matter who designed it.

And you're proving my point. If it didn't have that history behind it, or was of a different brand, you would probably agree with me. But you're judgement is so clouded by what you deem to be horologically significant, that you can't see an ugly watch for what it is.

We can all appreciate what's important about that watch, but only little fags like you who crave the acceptance of other "watch afficianados" will actually walk around with such an ugly watch

It's a gorgeous watch you miserable chimpanzee. The case is finished to perfection. The dial and bezel are perfectly symmetrical. The lugs are sized to prevent the bracelet from having a bad taper. Pictures don't do it justice. But you wouldn't know because you've never even seen one in person.

ROOs are pretty hard to look at in my opinion. They mostly exist for the new money shitters that want something flashier and bigger. The 41mm case is already oversized for all but the largest wrists. The complications aren't even made in house, as I understand it.

That watch seems a bit too big for you anon :^)

Look at pic related. Notice how well the lugs curve with the wrist to make a snug and comfortable fit.
Notice how low profile the watch is to his wrist so he can easily pull his shirt over if need be but always has the convenience and class of a watch at his disposal.
Notice how the watch doesn't smother his wrist unlike yours which reminds you of that really fat girlfriend you met in college who you had sex with twice and then didn't talk to again.

The crystal you can definitely replace, take it to a watchmaker instead of a store. Even if the original Citizen crystal is unavailable a generic replacement would work fine. The scratches you really probably can't do much about especially if they're really deep, but just a new crystal would make a big difference.

I doubt it can be polished easily unlikely acrylic crystals. As far the scratches on the bracelet go, those on the steel can be treated, on the gold plated part i don't think you should attempt that.

One option is to try and figure out the model from an old Citizen catalog, or find a generic crystal that fits as >>53828118 said (Wasn't yours fixed by watchmaker anon?)

rate my watch

the background display seconds and there are a bunch of different animations to choose from

probably going to wear that thing until smartwatches become useful for more than notifications

(obviously I have an other watch for formal occasions, but those only come up once or twice per month for me)

name of model?

Not a fan of the LED display. A seconds hand would have been much more tasteful.

I don't like the big leather strap, and the square body adds a lot more bulk than is really necessary.

Love the colors though.

It's shit

A speedmaster is the absolute maximum and stretching it even then. Subs and speedmasters are business casual at most not dress.

>> No.53832041

yes. If you want to do it yourself be careful and measure 5 times

So what would be wrong with wearing a 40mm pilot watch with a black face on black leather with a suit?

Do as you please. You'll look like a used car dealer though

>If subs and speedmasters are considered dressy nowadays
But that's wrong you fucking idiot

So much for "muh gears" and "lel batteries".

Cool, I didn't know Quake was popular back then

Dude this isnt some 54mm diesel with a bunch of useless subdials.
Its a very normal size and everything on there is there for a reason.

>> No.53832449

It's barely readable and every feature there that you aren't actually going to use is by definition "useless" - which is 90% of them.

>> No.53832462

Careful that doesn't magnetize your shit

>> No.53832489

I can read it just fine. I also know how to use a slide rule and a tach.
Actually this is one of the more legible pilot watches because the hands stand out so much.

>> No.53832524

I've worn a speedmaster for the last 3 months and have never needed to use the tachymetre. I don't know how the fuck you'd ever actually get benefit from it in 2016

>> No.53832540


>> No.53832591

Nothing at all, if it's a flight suit.

Good that you learned what a slide rule is :^)

It is for when you have a watch that does not handwind that you do not wear very often that you want to keep running. Most of my watches are handwind only, which I prefer to automatics now. I just have one automatic watch.

>> No.53832766

How common is that?

Literally hublot.

I think watch winders are waste unless you've got like a moonphase or annual/perpetual calendar or something. As long as you aren't ignoring it for months and months at a time it's not going to hurt to let it sit dead for a little while.
