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!

Most of their watches are ugly. Looks aside they make decent mechanical movements with hacking/handwind and other features. ST2130 is a direct clone of 2824 as well but much cheaper. Their watches are meh, but their movements are very good value for price.

Not a factory photo, just an old one lying around. The seagull is a bit rougher than a real 2824 but overall pretty acceptable. There are other asian clones of the 2824 though and the Seagull one is by far the best.

There's a reason why ISO diver certification demands "legibility at 30cm in total darkness", and not "HAZ LOOM DOTS". Small dots of lume are not legible in total darkness because your eyes are constantly altering their focal length.

I bought it from a fellow diver, I'm second owner, the watch had a hard life over the 20 odd years before i bought it.
Had to replace the case because it had some nasty gouges.
Also first service for the watch so there were a few worn parts.
Dial was perfect and no leaks, once it was serviced completely i bought a NOS case and bracelet I got a deal on and had the crystal replaced.
Rolex was kind enough to assist with it all and gave me re issue certificate when they put the serial on the new case.
The watch had a adventurous life and i plan to keep up the tradition
$2500 and i got a -2 sec per day rolex that i can use as my dive/adventure watch

What a watch may gain one day, it could very lose the next, and at the end of the month, the watch may be a minute out. It doesn't get to be a problem unless you let it get to 5 minutes, then it can fuck with your plans if everything is 5 minutes awry.

So let's say a watch ticks 8 times a second, and it's fast by about 2.5 seconds per day. That's suppose to be 28,800 ticks every hour, but it's actually doing 28,800.83333. Literally less than one extra tick for nearly 15 thousand oscillations. In all, on the whole day, instead of 691,200 ticks it would be 691220.

After 5 days it would be up to 12.5 seconds fast. 100 extra ticks on the normal ~3.5 million. And if your watch hacks the solution would be to pull the crown for 12 seconds and then push it back in to put you back at sub-second precision. Basically no effort at all.

They're very accurate.

To buy anything simple because
>It's more expensive
Is such a bullshit line and should never relate to anything. Lord above no one in this thread is that far up their own ass as to buy something simply because it's expensive.

However, to buy something because it is more complicated, well, that depends on if you appreciate the engineering behind something.

If you're buying purely for accuracy, then just go digital, but a good looking digital is near impossible to come by.
A good looking Quartz isn't that hard to come across, but they're often sold cheap, as is a virtue of the quartz movement, and you can feel this in the quality of the materials used.

You can often tell the quality of something from how it feels in your hand, the weight, the materials, the build, these are things you can tell instantly on a good mechanical watch, and it is very easy to very quickly fall in love with those things, and frankly, those are things that are very hard to find, or simply do not exist in quartz watches.

ok, the meme has got to end.

/g/, I will level with you just this once. I've had a good upbringing and been fortunate to meet a lot of successful people. About 3 years ago I started getting interested in watches and paying attention to which kind of watch other people wore. This is my conclusion; those that really have money will often have many watches, but most of the time they will prefer a simple, easy on the wrist, discrete and practical watch over a big bling rolex or 20m WR patek. The reason is that they don't want or need the attention, and for them, being able to spend 15k on a watch is a proof of nothing. While sailing, I've noticed many times that the guy with the smaller/cheaper boat will wear the bigger/more expensive watch, while the converse is also generally true. Poor people tend to look up to Rolex, LV-bags and Hermes scarfs as a sign of "I have made it", but these items are so common nowadays that they have lost what little distinction they ever had in the first place. Heck, even a bmw x6 or range rover is getting common. 'Fake it till you make it' is not about wearing a watch that represents 5% of your net worth. Remember, the people you want to impress will not be impressed by a rolex while the sort of people you dont want to impress are planning where to relieve you of it.

ISO certification requires every single watch to be tested to 125% of its rated depth. This means you are going to get a watch that is far less likely to fail the first time you take it into the water. The same is true of COSC, does it make your watch more accurate? No, but it means every one was tested to meet a certain standard of accuracy instead of being a total crap shoot within the specs of the movement.

>> No.56097455

Sure. And it also means a watch can't be ISO certified because it doesn't have a bezel locking mechanism, even if it does survive 300% of its rated depth.

I also sail, and in my experience, the people with the more expensive boats aren't even wearing a watch, if they need the time, they ask the nearest person.

But actual sport sailors (who are also considerably wealthy), tend to wear tool-watches or G-shocks on rubber/NATO straps. A lot of chronographs too, for timing maneuvers etc.

If I were to buy a Rolex I would buy for me and not anyone else. Don't assume you can generalize everyone who ever wanted anything luxury. No I am not rich, however I am looking to buy a Submariner as a milestone to myself. That milestone is:

1. Graduate
2. Stable job
3. Buy a house in a decent neighborhood
4. Eliminate any debt

The explanation here is that the closer the frequency of the balance wheel is to the changes in motion of the watch (arms swinging while walking), the more this motion will affect the accuracy. The swinging of our arms when walking is a pretty low frequency, so the lower the frequency of the movement, the closer it is to the motion of swinging arms. If the watch is just sitting still all the time, it probably doesn't matter.
