Rolex mines the precious metals used in their watch. Refines the ore. Smelts it. Makes every individual part by hand. Hand assembles the watch, they pressure test every watch all themselves. They go above and beyond to a ludicrous degree. Their workers are extremely well paid and receive great benefits. All in America n top of that. It isn't really a good deal still, but they definitely did their part so you get what you pay for. Many luxury brand watches are like this. Rolex still keeps shit time by comparison though. But they look good

Hi there!

You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!

Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!

No. That's their manufacturing process. You can easily Google it to verify, it's pretty pointless and inefficient. But it keeps hundreds of people gainfully employed. It's just what they do, so it's hard to say a product is over priced when they see the a-z of everything and other manufacturers outsource it all. If you don't like it fine, but you can't say it's over priced when the mark-up isnt even double the cost.

Your chink watch looks a bit less mall ninja and a bit more "I bought it at costco" dadcore.

But the chink one looks pretty cheaply made. At least with the real Bell and Ross the screws fit flush in their holes. Don't be suprised if that thing rattles as you move.

I can't imagine how the lume is going to be on that either, if it's only 15 dollars. It has a backlight though, right? That's probably the only way to read it in the dark.

Also, what are the random numbers just outside of the indices? Looks like it starts counting up from 1 at a quarter past 2 o'clock, is up to 35 at around 9:15 and then goes all the way to 95. What is that?

Also, keep in mind, at that price, even if they say 'stainless steel' china may or may not be lying. Only proceed if you don't have metal allergies.

>>55134385
Just because you see something posted here, doesn't mean it's necessarily liked any more than your Movado.

Movado was a company, like many other swiss companies, that made some interesting watches back in the day, but hasn't even bothered with trying to make anything with watch movements in quite a while now. Now all they do is package up some eta movements in some watch to sell at Macy's.

That model, your watch, in particular is a design they stole from Nathan Horwitt, and they had to pay out to him a legal settlement for it. They kinda stopped making it, but then when he died they ramped production big time and started to use his name again as a selling point because now they can get away with it. Hard for him to get angry and stop them again now that he's dead.

But at the end of the day, what's going to impress /g/? A watch with a unique or novel mechanism. A company that tries to inject some sort of unique technological improvement in the form of copper-sulfate capsules or graphite particle coatings. Or even silicon used for its unique mechanical properties. But what about movado, and your watch? They buy some movement from eta, they buy some case from China, they engrave their logo on it and sell it at the mall. They don't do anything, they just buy components. But /g/ could still like a watch and company that just buys components, if those components have some technological advancement or unique properties that that justify attention or admiration. But Movado has no use for that kind of shit, that's not their marketing, and we're not their market segment.

those markings on the inner chapter ring (between the hour indices and the chapter ring) it make it look sporty, but the rest of the watch is pretty dressy so it ends up as this bizarre sub-par hybrid design

i can't even begin to imagine why they decided on sub second markings on a quartz, it's baffling to me. just an unnecessary and nonfunctional ornamentation that just clutters up the face of what could have been perfectly fine.

I started with /co/ and /g/ but gradually replaced the former with /a/ as the SJWs moved in. That's actually where I first heard about the Komandirskie, since back in the old days /a/'s threads would usually derail into some other topic. I remember thinking how awesome it was that the Russians made mechanical watches, and I promptly bought one.

As far as watches go, everything here that is halfway decent and not a Vostok is pretty much unattainable by a NEET. I bought the Komandirskie as a College student with a part time job and the $40 cash outflow actually hurt. I can't imagine what it must be like for someone with absolutely zero income.

The SDGM is only a $600 watch though and the added cost over something like the SARX series is entirely finishing and the expensive diashield coating. Would a better movement be nice? Sure, but it will definitely cost you.

Somewhat, i think the Baby-g's or some older models are thinner.

For his intended purposes, as a casual day to day watch it's still relatively thick. If you want it as a sports watch (Or like me for usage in the army) sure it's alright. But even so after a while of it snagging on everything it switched to the Osama Casio.

It ends up being pretty much as thick as an Amphibia, but at the same time less comfy.

So i'm pretty sure someone here can help me.
Im torn between the seiko skx 007 and the Orient ray.
every review i read and every comparision video i watch puts them very close together and leans more to one or the other but there is never clearly a winner.
So heres the point: I like the design of the skx more because of the flat bezel and i think it has an overall more rugged look.
some revierwers write that it was "built to take a beating" which is quite good because i plan to wear the watch i buy every day and in numerous activities.
the ray is said to be more accurate than the seiko and also 50 euros cheaper than the seiko ( i can get a ray with metal bracelet for 149, cheapest price i found for the seiko is 210 as a japan import)
does anybody know how robust the ray is?
who owns these watches and can give some pros and cons for buying them?
And most importantly: which one should i take?

skx007 is better if you ask me

- crown at 4 doesn't dig into your wrist
- chapter ring is more readable
- lume is excellent on seiko divers, every orient I have has terrible lume. (this is flat out unforgivable, i think lume is very important on a diver watch)
- cursive writing on a tool watch triggers me
- white outlined markers look cleaner and bolder on the skx, compared to the silver tone rolex style outlines on the ray.
- a second crown on ray bothers the fuck out of me
- the hands on the orient bother the fuck out of me and look out of place, especially the hour hand.
- i believe the ray only has a 60 click bezel compared to 120 on the skx
- seiko divers have a history of their own
- mineral crystal compared to hardlex
- orients logo is hideous and looks like a bed sheet company or something. this is coming from a person who is a fan of the brand.
- more popular watch and movement in general, easier to find parts, aftermarket, servicing, etc

Down to personal preference familia. They're based off the same movement, but one thing to consider is if you're actually going diving the skx is ISO rated.

I personally think the Ray looks a little dressier than the SKX, so it is probably a little dressier and all-around more versatile if you're planning to wear it around an office. I find the lume is almost as good as Seiko's, you really cannot notice much of a difference in most applications. While it doesn't have the ISO rating, this really does not matter if you don't plan to rely on it for diving. 200M is still plenty beefy in terms of water resistance.

Keep in mind there is a new Ray which does away with the ancient 46943 movement and brings in a new one with hacking and hand-winding. Anyone's guess how reliable the new one is, but it's interesting that Orient is able to do their own in-house deal without borrowing from the 4R36.

Hey /g/

The three main styles of watches that I like are divers, flieger/military, and bauhaus.

I already have a diver (pic related - Orient Mako). I just ordered an SNZG15K for $120CAD that I will probably keep on a leather strap, so there goes the flieger/military category. Now I'm just looking for a bauhaus.

What is the best mechanical bauhaus that I can get for sub-$200 Canadian? I'd like to keep it $150 or below but if it's worth it I can stretch to $200.

I also own a Christopher Ward and I really like their straps, like this: https://www.christopherward.com/torro-brava-leather-strap-dress-clasp-20mm-d2707f

so that was my first thought, but I don't know if that strap will even fit. Advice?

That's a 57xx the ones they collect are the 52xx series made in a different factory.
The biggest problem with the 57xx iirc was the date wheel breaking so i guess if this one is cheap enough it's a good buy

As for taking care of it, don't wear it doing work the involves hammering or sit like that, don't smash it into anything.
Don't drop it. Don't dive with it.
Take it to a watch maker in 10 years for a clean and oil

But isn't Tangente the best "knockoff" of that design though? So a NOMOS would be the best choice for someone who likes the style.

Looks good, do you like the design? That's the most important thing.
It's got a miyota movement so when it needs a service in x years it won't cost an arm and a dick.
If it's as well made as described it is a good purchase.

>57xx

The 57 caliber was a range of movements running between 18,000 and 36,000 bets per hour, with the latter being as loud as the average gatling gun. They were all hand-winding. Think Lord Marvel.

The 56 caliber is the one you're thinking of and the one anon posted. It runs at a more leisurely 28,800 beats per hour and is quite a bit quieter. They are automatic with hand-winding. Think Lord Matic. And yes, aside from the shitty day-date mechanism, the 56 caliber is almost every bit as good as the 52 caliber. The only difference is the latter had a few minor tweaks that made regulation easier. And yes, since this is a 5601, it does not have a day-date mechanism and is thus good.

$300 invested in 1969 would be worth way more than 1950 today though.

Recommend me a good looking watch that is good for going out with, on a budget.

>56 caliber is 28,800!
>Just as good as the 52 caliber

I wish people would stop repeating this outright fucking LIE.

SOME 56xx movements were 28,800, and tended to be used in the King Seikos. Most of them, ie the 5601, 5605, 5606, and 5619, were standard 21,600. This was the vast majority of 56xx movements produced, and pretty much the only ones that went into the LM. Why do you think the Lord Matics with the 52xx were called "special"? Because of some caliber difference only autists would notice or care about? Because of the fucking Daini lighting bolt? No! It's because they were Hi-Beat Lord Matics and the 56xx ones were not!

I wish you fucking Suwa shills would go back to Seiko-Epson and expend your effort on designing shit that doesn't break.
