Tell me about it. Megasonics in this case style almost never come up for sale. One of the recent ones I've seen had the index rotor broken off from the tuning fork. Tragic really. There's another one similar to mine (albeit less clean) up on ebay right now for about 1200 syrupdollars more than I paid.

But if you really want to: a watch with white or cream dial, simple, like 3 hands with or without date. Leather strap that matches shoes and belt.

I'm a NEET that watches the watches threads, and I would like to buy a temp starter until my skillz needed for another job that pays big and can get something really nice (thinking of getting a Nomos later and researching vintage stuff more - I like vintage fountain pens and razors and will probably prefer a vintage watch collection later).

So, I was thinking something simple with just decent materials for the price. Are either of these ok? Thoughts?

Kickstarter watches are all shit made by the same 3 Chinese companies from the Guangzhou/Hong kong area and overpriced to sell. Theyre a dimr a dozen and th attrition of the brands in 10 years will be 90℅ because at the end of the day none of them got the Daniel Wellington business model down: create hype over nothing, sell worthless products at 1300℅ markup, reinvest profits into social media marketing to normie, rinse repeat. Can't really be done with mechanicals because they're not as cheap or popular, not recognizable to normies, and there's far too much competition.

The only company to do this successfully has been Autodromo whose marketing is so good they can sell obviously Chinese made Motors powered or even quartz watches for for $600-1000 all based on marketing and muh classic designs/vaguely Italian sounding name. And nothing else. They have beat all the competition based on time and probably the purchase of hype via friendships with authors of popular watch blogs alone.

Goddamn I hate Kickstarter and the watch blogosphere. I hate to admit it because the Seiko shitposting here is too damn high but /wt/ is legitimately a superior resource to msot. Ironically the only other good one is Replica Watch Info (yes, not just for fakes) because its users generally hate the hipster pastel shaded blogs as much as the rest of us and want deals without marketing hype.

-10 C: no problems, just put on more clothes. Your cell phone might die of it was Nokia.
-20 C: still no probs: just put on more clothes and be careful. Nature has no mercy.
-30 C: this is painful, you don't want to be outdoors. Use lots of winter clothing, beware of sweating, adjust continuously. We are approaching dangerous territory. Many cell phones will die. Military radio gear is still fine
-40 C: dangerous but bearable as long as you are careful. Foreign soldiers on winter training underestimate the dangers, a few were sent home, frozen solid, no fridge needed for preservation. Only the careless and ignorants will even think of exposing themselves. No dump. Whatsoever.
-50 C: very dangerous, avoid going out. Foreign pseudoheroes will quickly be in dire need of rescue, seriously.

Hello /wt/, first time poster.

My first and only real watch that I own is a Seiko SKX007K and since it looks like I can afford a new watch soon I'm asking you guys for advice.

I'd like a more dressy watch, considering the only watch I have is a diver.
White dial preferred but I'm open for suggestions.
Budget: about 400-500€, I'm kinda flexible.

So far I've been looking at the Tissot Visodate and the Hamilton Khaki.

Well I was hoping to steal it once in awhile. Girls wear big watches these days, and that watch is not inherently masculine (especially the cute moon thing on the second hand) other than the size. I was also considering pic related (37mm). While she liked both, she doesn't trust herself to not lose it (has a history of losing hand/wrist jewelry).

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!

the second hand functions as a power reserve indicator, I assume. you press the button and the second hand moves to a position on the dial relative to the remaininggpower in the battery/capacitor, then hopefully goes back to where it was plus the amount of seconds it shows the power

If you have bigger wrists then 42 is the one for you, if average/smaller I'd stick to 16570. The new one has a much nicer bracelet but that's really the only thing I liked about it.

What is the consensus on IWC anyways, is it basically Breitling but not as gaudy? I.e. banking on heritage rather than quality to justify it's price point?
Sinn and Damasko are much more honest watches, offering their own unique technologies (inert gas filled, diapal, tegiment/ice hardened, copper-sulfite capsules, etc.) and design which provides value despite the movements (btw Damasko have models with in house movements), at 2/3 or lower prices.

>> No.55744634

>>5574444
IWC have a rich and vibrant history however their line up has a lot of eta pseudo-horology which isn't doing them much favours. Rather like Girard Perregaux.

I wouldn't be so quick to knock Breitling. I've had a Superocean 42 for a few days and I really couldn't knock the quality, the thing felt just as solid as the Sub. And given the fact it can be bought for less than 3k I'd consider it good value. I can't say I'm a big fan of their oversized shit but that was their style for a while - they're for flashy blokes who want to make a statement.

Yeah let's do strap changing while in full dive gear. If it's a dive tool it can't have a leather strap, if it's an aesthetical choice there's absolutely no need for rating beyond skin diver nor functionalities like huge bezel or crown. I can accept and kind of even want a supercompressor, 60-70s divers in general, AP ROO Diver or non-diver series Panerai.

Sounds convenient, getting out your tools and a different strap every time you want to go to the beach or something. Or not forgetting to pack that shit when you're going on a holiday. Leather strap belongs on a dress watch.

After saving up some extra money, I have decided to get a watch that will probably be my personal watch.

The Grand Seiko SBGJ001.

Talk me out of it.

Oh just a heads up, I am not the one wearing the watch, its just a picture I found on google images. But the watch itself is correct.

I'd like to know too, but I didn't find much.
They're possibly chinese bracelets with just a vostok stamping added on the clasp, which wouldn't surprise me. They aren't made in chistopol at least.

It's not my favourite GS, but if you like it go for it.

So how many times have you gotten completely surprised with having to do a dive?

That watch looks small for a 500m diver.

It's actually 43.5mm wide and 49mm lug to lug.

It's a terrific watch.
I wouldn't pay the $500 they're asking for it, though. I got it through Massdrop, too.
