Seagull 1963 'Panda'.

Probably the most expensive watch I'll ever own. Bought it a few years ago on a total whim, had a little bit of cash and fell in love with the design immediately.

Unfortunately I've worn it... maybe twice. Most of my wardrobe is full of holes and covered in stains since I work an industrial job. I usually wear an cheap resin Casio. I feel pretentious wearing anything else. Anyone else in the same situation?

Agreed 100%, its basically supply and demand thing. Anyone who says its not worth the price of admission($7k new, $4.5-5k used depending on condition) they are welcome to:

a. not buy it

b. make something to compete with it

Right now a Rolex of the few luxury watch that is durable enough that it can be worn everyday, this alone makes it one of the most desirable time pieces around. No there is nothing around that is similar to a Rolex for $1k, $2k or even $3k, if you think so then you are being delusional. A $1500 ORIS is a great watch and a better buy than anything in its price range but its still not even close to a Rolex, and its not trying to be.

In this world there are people that criticizes Rolex, and people that own Rolexes.

Tudor doesn't have the polish a Rolex would have it also doesn't utilize 904L(85-95HRB) found only in Rolex but the more common 316L(<85HRB) stainless steel which is found in more common watches from Seikos, Movado and Citizen.

Sorry but you are wrong in every conceivable way. The 316L is better because of corrosion resistance, sure the 904L is more scratch resistant but this is a fucking tool watch.

Yeah what makes it suitable to a reactor liner, is not suitable for a watch.
Don´t quote me on this but I think that stuff might even be porous.
As for the 904 vs 316 discussion. hardness only partially matters, the yield and tensile strenght are a big factor. Machining also becomes more difficult, this would cause the prices to rise even more.

And hey 904 is shit compared to any nickel alloy or duplexSS. The only downside is that it would take 10 times as long to make a single case.

To be a gentleman you need these 4 things in your life:

1. Box of Cubans(can be Nicaraguan/DR/etc.) with a nice stainless/gold(just no plastic shit) cutter and torch(Dupont pref. Zippo "okay") lighter.

2. a custom made suit not by the fucking Mens Warehouse or Hans Zimmer or whatever the fuck his name is. Not by fucking suit broker or that other cheapo brand. Armani okay, Ralph Lauren, okay, you get the picture.

3. a 1911, most of you hippies don't know what this is but trust me its good and won't go down in value like the above two. Nothing RIA piece of shit, nothing Kimber, nothing fucking Rugers and God forbid nothing Sigs they make other good things but 1911 they are shit at. Springfield is kinda close to that line of shit, well you know when you get to the right line.

4. Watch: Rolex, AP, Omega Speedmaster, etc. however Rolex is a good start and its basically the jack-of-all-trades of watches. Stainless or gold.

Well there you have it folks, 2/4 will not go down in value unless you genuinely fucked up in their care. And you will get compliments and accolades helping you boost whatever shit ego you have.

For Rolex do you guys buy new or used? There's a Submariner I have my eyes on for around $4k I really liked the exposed lugs compared to the newer version. However the newer version has a better Caliber the 3130, blue Super Luminova and Ceramic bezel. Price difference is around $3-4k.

One thing I do love about buying used is I don't care about keeping it pristine as much as if I were to buy it new. Therefore I can wear the watch as it was meant to be worn.

Will be headed to HQ Milton on my lunch break to take a good look at her in real life. Anybody want to come along? Maybe have lunch this monday in downtown SF?

Hi /wtg/, I want a little purchase advice
pic related is all I got. The one on the right just died a few days ago, and I need a replacement for it, but this time I'd like something a little nicer.

What is a good watch that comes with either leather or nato straps, has more elegance, no digital face, and I wouldn't have to worry about losing or scratching it as much as the one on the left? Also, I would like for it to blend in with just about anything.

Left watch was a gift for nineteenth birthday a little while ago, but I don't wear it yet because I need to take a single band off, its too loose.
is it worth it to learn to place/remove bands yourself? I'm on /g/ so obviously I am not a retard, I did my own thermal pasting on my thinkpad, built my own PC, etc

Well shit, now that I've started looking and found another model with world time that I kinda like. Do you know anything about pic related? The vibe alarm feature seems pretty neat, provided the vibration is aggressive enough to actually draw attention. The only problem is that you lose the classic styling and start moving closer to the modern fuckhuge size.

Why not? My family loses a lot of money daily knowing that we are headed into 2017 with two of the worst presidential contenders since Jimmy Carter. Also everything except for the shitty Seven Friday does not go down in value.

That's not even a lot of money compared to the cars we buy, I mean the shitty 2015 EClass that I am driving right now is worth 44k, it went down 11k in 1 year. The watches and gun on the other hand doesn't depreciate.

You mean to tell me Sinn managed to build a new metal composition that is better than 316L? Do tell.

Say what you want, Steinhart is still a much better value than Sinn and a much much much much much much much much(infinity...) better value than a Rolex.
