Have you seen it in person? I was torn between the Milgauss and the Explorer (i hate crown guards) and went to my local AD to check them out.

After trying out both, I decided to get the Explorer. The Milgauss is very heavy, presumably because of the anti-magnetic case and I felt the colors were too funky. For some reason the Explorer really grew on me while the Milgauss just seemed more like a memewatch.

Yeah, I've seen and worn both as well.
I helped my father out when he decided he wanted a watch (and of course he wanted a Rolex).
I didn't really notice the weight. They're like 25grams in between each other. It felt as heavy as any other watch with bracelet.
The funky colors are what I really like. It's a great everyday watch in my opinion. For classier event I'd wear a dress watch anyway.
But damn, I also do like the Explorer.

That's a fairy diverse collection. The Maison is a stunner and a very interesting piece. Orbis Morgan seems nice but they're all fuckhuge.

Mine isn't much better frankly. I've had many watches before but now consolidated down to the short hand memexplorer, junghans max bill and an alba (seiko) quartz field watch. Pic related from Seiya.

Currently looking at pilot watches. Really tempted to get an iwc mark xv. The new ones are nice but I don't feel like spending so much on a eta/sellita. Plus richemont is a huge jew.

I bought it for about 60 usd + 40 usd for that exact same expandable bracelet. They're both Titanium and are extremely light. The band pulled quite a bit of hair initially but is extremely comfortable now that I've worn it a few times. A nice piece for when I go cycling or hiking.

I never thought much about the price considering my top contender for a field beater watch is the Seiko SBCA001 which was discontinued and listed from anywhere between 140-200USD.

Look in all the dictionaries.

There is no word for what we do.

It's not 'tradition', though our craft is timeless.

'Limitless' is too limiting.

'Enduring' is not enduring enough.

'Innovation' can only begin to describe it.

We sculpt, paint and explore.

But explorers, sculptors, and painters we are not.

This is the only thing we make.

The only thing we will ever make.

There is no word for what we do.

There is only a way.

Second hand SKX that aren't some kind of Philipino rescues and in good shape hover in the 90~150 range depending on condition and extras while new one start 160+.

Where's that anon with the Seiko Spirit with the red 24hr dial? I really like that watch. Can you post some pics and tell me a bit about it? Specifically the straps, isn't the lug size 18mm but the dial size 40mm? Does that make it a bit awkward?

>> No.54308695

Yes I'd get the red too.
It may be safe, but that means it's good looking without weird details you have to make excuses for, and it's incredibly versatile - which would be a huge plus for me since I wouldn't be able to afford many expensive watches, and I would hate to leave one of those in a drawer if I owned it.

1. The watches you're referring to are resin not plastic, they look new much longer than steel and are much more shock resistant
2. They make many metal watches, from the MDV divers to the Lineage and Oceanus lines.
The Lineage watches come in either SS or titanium, and the oceanus line is all Titanium Carbide titanium, both case and bracelet. Impossible to scratch unless you try really fucking hard.

Yeah well, it would suck to take the watch to a watchmaker just after buying it, considering it wasn't especially a bargain in this case. I just wanted a used blue dial one and paid 90€ when I could have probably got a black one in a better for maybe even 20€ less.
I live in Germany and here watchmakers charge a lot for any simple shit, and I guess that if they remove the glas to fix the issue they will want to check the water resistance after, which would probably increase the cost of his service.

It technically isn't, you get a seiko 4r movement for less than half of what an SKX costs.
However, you're essentially wearing a fake Rolex, and they have to stamp INVICTA on everything to stop chinks from gutting the case and making a fake.

Titanium scratches a bit easier than SS (much easier to buff out scratches though). TiC treatment gives it a hardness of 9.5. It would actually be easier to scratch the sapphire crystal than the case or bracelet on an Oceanus.
>>54309191
Are you referring to Diashield? To my knowledge it's slightly worse than what Sinn uses, and that's slightly worse than TiC
Don't quote me on that though.
It's important to note though, that Seiko and Casio offer these high end alloys and treatments for less than a fraction of what Omega charges for a Titanium-5 alloy watch.

the seller says it's perfectly working, he just point out in the description that he can't guarantee its perfect function in the middle/long term but I guess that's a redundant statement if you are selling a vintage watch anyway.

Sub 150 euros shipped is a decent price for it. The 8110A movement is definitely worth the price. High beat and more robust that the Seiko 6139/6138.

Yesterday /wt/ was talking shit about my blue perlon strap. Truth be told I don't like it much either. I wanted to add a dash of flashy color but don't think it matches well with the style of watches I have.

If you really want to be anal, the correct name is Nato strap, not NATO strap. They also have no relation at all to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. If anything, the nylons straps that natos are based off of were invented by the British Ministry of Defense.

But also, if you put a Nato strap on a Vostok, does that turn it into a Warsaw strap?

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.

Left or right, and why

>> No.54312357

has there ever been discussion of fake watches? I was in another country and i picked up a fake omega for 10 bucks but the color on it is fading. Otherwise it hasnt lost time or anything like that. I love it because no one ive showed it to has been able to spot the difference. anyone know where I can get a nice fake for < 50 bucks which will be good quality?

Looks like the standard Nam-era disposable field watch. Problem is these are impossible to tell apart from a distance, since they all had to conform to standards in appearance, like strap, case, dial and such.

This one was made by Benrus, but you could only tell that by the wall of text on the caseback.

Their watches were garbage and got flooded or fell apart in the jungle so they started buying Seiko divers which were cheap and easily available in Asia and much more reliable. It probably helped popularize Seiko with Americans. You can thank Nixon for the SKX007 being such a meme.

Look at that thing I just got.
