Those Benrus/Omegas being sold via eBay from Guyana are pretty obviously being used for money laundering imo, the same guy has all kinds of preposterous items listed at such values. Clearly criminal associates of the 100% authentic Nigerian Prince variety are bidding on these items which have the same pictures, paying him, and he's then forwarding the money on their behalf

As it turns out, I paid too much. I originally won the auction for a little over 28,000 yen or $330 Canadabux, but then Buyee inexplicably charged me in British Pounds, I had to pay their fees, I had to pay shipping, and then I got keked by Canadian customs. So in the end I'm into it for a lot more than I originally anticipated. Still a good deal compared to the ~$650 you'd be paying on eBay, but not a screaming bargain by any stretch.

Seconds can go offf sync sometimes.

Buttons are not easily accessible. Light button is hard to press with gloves.

Sides of the casing are not screwed, so they end up widening and leaving a gaping hole on both sides you have to superglue.

relax I'm just breaking balls

the bracelet feels really cheap and hollow, a lot of rattling when your wrist moves. dropped it a few times its like there are bent links now if that makes sense, the clasp area was bent too so you have to sort of bend it back to close the clasp and it's prone to fly open on you. also scuffs ridiculously easily as well.

sort of hard to see in the pic but you can see it doesn't sit flush at rest

The syllabus said that he curves the class avg to a 75. Which is actually very low for the 2nd hardest undergrad class. A 40 in Yale is an A in their orgo classes.
What the syllabus doesn't say is that he fucking drops the low end of the curve. So if the class avg is a 50 he inflates it to a fucking 70, avoiding having to give us a curve.
After the first exam 2/3rds of the class dropped dispute the avg being a "75".

I earn fuck all, but have ample money for watches, but I usually spend my money on clothes. Just don't have kids, don't go on lavish holidays, don't buy assets that decrease in value substansially (cars) and don't get loans (House is an exception) and you will have heaps of disposable income

Investment is a decent way to obtain money for watches imo. Obviously you would have to look at the market but buying real estate can net you a $10000 increases in a matter of months. Stock , bonds and securities, I won't go into those

Not that applicable to someone in your line of work, but I know tradesmen who do cash jobs on the weekends and buy stupid stuff with the money, they get a few mates around and shout them beers and make $1000 in a day

SRP701 or SRP703.

Gold on a casual watch is never a good idea.

It's a side lever with a single banking pin through a hole in the lever.

This doesn't seem to be common though. I've disassembled some slav movements in the past and they didn't have any of this sort.

Or i'm just getting blind.

Thanks anon. I was considering these.
I'm not looking for gold, just the overall design.

But now I realise that it's simply the gold's aesthetic value that makes PP look so gorgeous in the first place.

It's from a 70's Jap Ricoh. Soviet watches are pretty conservative though, with the most unusual thing I can think of being the double mainspring barreled Slavas. They also have a weird pallet fork though.

I'm aware of Ricoh, but never quite delved into their movement(s ?).

SARY055 is also a nice option.Though If you had a little bit of a bigger budget the SDGM001 is far better.

Personally i'm saving up for either an SDGM003 or for a Citizen grand classic.

The grand classic is awesome, I'm wearing mine now.

I like the black dialed version.

The nicely decorated and higher beat movement is a plus. Hows the overall feel on the bracelet, and does it have solid endlinks?

>> No.54790934

The bracelet is pure sex. Every link is made of multiple milled pieces with different finishes, even the endlinks. Extremely comfortable, although there is no microadjust, just a half link. Mine is the silver version, the dial is incredible.

Alright, shame about the lack of micro-adjustments.

But it's going to be a quite while till i get it with all the shit i got going on, so plenty of time to decide.

Depends on what you want. Seiyajapan would be for seikos and other nip watches.
