Eh, it's not a design I like, but it's not a bad price if you do.

Keep in mind they have it on a bracelet for a dollar cheaper. You can always switch to an aftermarket strap whenever you desire, aftermarket bracelets are more of a capshoot if they're available, especially for non-iconic models.

The reason is indeed as explained in >>55507022 though I would point the GMT at the sun and 12 o'clock would then be south. This assumes that the sun is south at 12 o'clock so you have to remember not to mess up with daylight saving.

For astrolabe type watches like the Ulysse Nardin there is also a lunar hand yo can use the same way which comes in handy at night with (near) full moon.

I'm imagining you decided sex and sexuality was disgusting as a way to make yourself feel better about having no girls want you, and it evolved into a superiority thing.

As for the grand seiko, they are absolutely superb watches. they may not have the prestige with normies as the swiss brands, but the quality, technology and history is wonderful. Don't discount them so quickly unless you just want to show off.

What do you guys think of the 9F quartz Grand Seiko?
I'm interested in it for the luxury, hand made build quality and finishing; but I don't want to get jewed with servicing and what not. I especially don't like leaving my expensive things in the hands of other people for extended periods of time.
Is it worth the ~2k for a new one?

I think if you're going to spend a sizeable chunk of money on a watch it should be mechanical but that's just me mang. Service on a quartz movement isn't required frequently enough for it to be a huge concern, every 10 years or so should be fine and I wouldn't expect it to be hard to find someone to do it.

The 9F has a theoretical oil life of 50 years. But that's not what the intended service interval is.

Certainly if you wanted to minimize how often you send your watch for service the 9F would be the prime candidate.

The one you have is a bit simpler than mine. It only have a databank function, so it's lacking the scheduler. Also you can't put funny memes on the home display and you don't have world time.

best deals for new rolex will probably be found far away, in Bangkok, HongKong, Japan, Mexico. many of the places I would never buy a watch from without being able to inspect internals

In the window they have an 8 year old Submariner, with no service history, and scratches all across the glass. They're selling this for £5800. Give or take £60-ish, probably give.

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.
