It's a basic principal of design that should clue anyone to the fact it's not a Seiko model. So now he'll be aware of it, and may take a closer look at the watches to start to pick up on these details.

So I fell for the King Seiko meme and got this 5246-6010. Paid around $500. I was hoping the case wouldn't be polished to shit, but it looks like it might be, compared to the pictures I found. Other than that and the slightly stained dial, everything seems fine. Gotta take it to the watchmaker to inspect the movement later today. Opinions?

"A russle" as in prone to failure? Or a pain to set? The day date sets like any ETA automatic. I thought it was the 56xx series that has a date wheel failure issues.

On another note, the I thought this movement is supposed to be hacking. The second hand doesn't stop when I pull the crown out to the 2nd position. It stops though when I turn the crown clockwise (adjusting time backward), which counts as hacking???

A pretty generic Orient, and F-91W for sports and shit. I want to step up to the next tier of watches and going above ~$1500 isn't going to be a "comfortable" option for years.

Club seems to be pretty versatile when it comes to straps and I really like that in a daily wearer. Sinn 556 is the other big competitor for me right now, although it's starting to feel a bit too plain after looking at Nomos dials.

Some other guy asked two days ago when will it be available again and the answer was "The next month."

I personally prefer the old second hand, but I have no qualms with the new one. They're both light years ahead of the fugly arrow-shaped one on standard models. The other difference between old and new neptunes are thicker lume indices.

Does anyone here know something about the vintage Swiss Sicura?
I've just seen a neat piece going for 90€, and it used, are as far as I've just read, the same company as Breitling.
Would consider getting one and put it on a nice Bond nato, too bad it's chrome plated.
It uses a BFG 158 automatic movement, maybe someone knows it already.

>My comparison was not rooted in the argument but the presentation and tone of it. You do raise a good point though. Its why I prefer vintages. Watches were usually purpose-built before The Quartz Crisis. Now more effort is spent in branding rather than the engineering and design behind watches. This is apparent with the proliferation of "fashion" brands.
Well, my tone was an attempt at least of self irony. An art that takes a lot of practice I see. Nevertheless we do seem to be in general agreement.

>As for what I want a watch to be. I prefer old fashion mechanical timekeeping purely for aesthetic reasons. I like a sweeping second hand. If somehow Citizen could somehow combine the smooth sweep of its precisionist movements with the solar charging of its eco drives and most importantly place it in a watch that did not look like complete ass I would be a happy man.
A sweeping had is also aesthetic to me and also advantageous mechanically when carrying a relatively heavy tritium tube. A fully mechanical movement would be elegant though I would prefer the precision of quartz.

>The flightmaster 910 is probably my favorite omega design. It would be what I would buy if I found myself in need of a chronograph. If I had a chance to buy a relatively unmolested example in person I would surely snap it up.
That is also a favourite of mine and it intrigues me how they managed to make a rather busy face become eminently readable. A reimagination of this design is well overdue.

It has its quirks but if you can make use of its functions then it's an ideal and very accurate watch, especially for travel. Water resistance is a minor concern but it isn't a diving watch.

>>54990538

That was the first-generation one like mine here. This one though got fitted with the gen2 pushers and bezel and crown by whomever had it before me. Some people have had their all-original first-generation X-33s for nearly 20 years without any parts needing replaced or repaired.

The "Skywalker" is the third-gen X-33 and it's an all-new design instead of the minor revision of the gen1 design making the gen2.
