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!

Alright fämälams. For those who give a shit, here's my shitty review of the SARX019, as promised.

What I liked:
- The enamel dial is beautiful. Better than expected. The surface has a subtle wavy and sprinkle-y texture which doesn't really show in the pics. The Glorious Nipponese folded 200x handiwork by Yokozawasan did not disappoint (except for the date window).
For your weaboo masturbatory pleasure:
http://www.seikowatches.com/world/tokinowaza/yokozawa/
- Heat blued hands looks almost as good as those on an IWC or Ulysses Nardin. Almost but not quite, as those watches have more rounded finish of the edges.
-The quality of dial markings is superb.
- No eaten numbers. The III is shrunk to fit the date window, rather than cut off.
- Subtly domed sapphire crystal.

What I did not like:
- Mediocre crocodile strap, looks and feels cheap - way too glossy and the keeper stitchings are a bit rough. The deployant clasp is also finicky and hard to properly click into place.
- The date window border and finishing could be better.
- Sub-second indices are inappropriate for this type of watch.
- Huge "SEIKO" text and unnecessary "Automatic 23 jewels" text. The former's font size should be half of what it is, and in italics.
- It's fuckhuge for a dress watch. 40.5mm wide and 12.9mm thick. Almost as thick as my Valjew chronos.
- The bezel/case interface is very prominent - I'd prefer it to be as seamless as possible.
- Polished case finish always looks worse in person than in pictures, imo. Attracts lint/dust/fingerprints like no other. I'd prefer satinized brushed.

Overall, the design of this watch is much more like a deck watch (such the Stowa Marine) than a dress watch, which is not immediately apparent from the pictures. Case finishing is decent, but still noticeably inferior to my Sinns and Tutima. Worth what I paid for it ($470) but not full retail ($700-$800), imo. 7/10 for the price I paid. Should serve me well until I get a Nomos next year.

Its actually smaller than my current 40mm ym. The bracelet is hanging as it wasn't adjusted yet. So it might seem looser and big from that perspective.
But I am unlucky to have small wrists and big hands and forearms. No amount of working out is going to really add much to my wrists haha.

When they're actually available, and if you're able to get one, then they're nice enough.

Though I fail to see the point of a gas escape valve in a diver only rated for 200m.

9015 runs at a factory states maximum of -10/+30 if I'm not mistaken.

OVM totes a 2824-2 Elaboré, with a daily average of +/-7, with a maximum of +/-30.

I'm not able to find any documentation stating the factory expectations of average accuracy for the 9015, perhaps you may have more luck.

I guess a lot depends on the construction of the watch and how secure the crystal and how helium-tight the seals might be. A 1000m Seiko Marinemaster won't have a HE valve due to the design of the seals. A 300m Rolex won't have one because how tough it is.

HMT actually made some decent looking (and dare I say well-built) watches. Problem is, they were all built in a dirty shithole factory in India. They're already dirty when they're new. They're useful if you need parts for Citizen movements though, as a few of the parts are cross-compatible.

Shame, really.

Oh fuck. Now that's just not right. What kind of Chinese place closes on a Thursday.

I live in heaven, the 2 good chinese places have their close days coordinated to where you can always get good chinese food. The other 4 are complete trash. Then there is 1 okay-ish place.

Even better, the 2 good places are both located 2 minutes from the cheapest pub in town.

Here is my Seiko SARY055, it's the JDM model, though I know there is a similar international Presage model floating around out there, SRQ's? Too lazy, regardless, beautiful watch, beautiful finish and casing. Just gorgeous in person. Couldn't be happier, though I know someone at some point will bring up the Sarb and it's 6R15, this 4R has done just as well, with a beautiful caseback and rotor btw. With an average gain/loss of 3 seconds per day, I don't think I could be any happier.

Let me begin by commending you on your fine taste, anon.

My family has one. the anchor makes a turn and back in one minute and you can just stand there and behold the amazing mechanical wonder of the clock.

Cryogenic grade coolness is obtained from the bellows that drives the main spring. Old design used variations in the atmospheric pressure (hence the name) while newer ones use variations in temperature. That is a problem if the room is regulated by thermostat without lowering temperature at night.

I hear that Atmos clocks are used in official gifts by the Swiss government, a stately gift that should impress any head of state.

Serious suggestion: make a device to polish 3D printed wheels. The texture from 3D printing is sufficiently rough to halt the entire movement so there is a real need for a device to polish and finish the teeth on the wheels.

Credor has gone thru a lot. Was once much more 'cartier-wannabe.' turns out Cartier is not what a company should emulate and they've gone on to do a lot more in finding Credor its own identity instead of copying someone else's. The Eichi II will, hopefully, serve as a centerpiece for what they can be and will be, rather than watches like either chrono, moving forward.

I'm selling Pebble Steel with leather band for $90, some dude what to trade for replica of tag heuer Pendulum, he's will send pics later. If it's going to be not bad looking watch should I trade and wear it/scam someone and sell as real one?

How? I don't have the tools to open it, and I can't see how I would stop it using the crown.

Just let it run down by itself and don't mess with it until you can get it to a watchmaker.

>need one for traveling
Get something similar to pic related. It's padded and holds 8 watches or a gorillion straps. Search for "zippered watch travel box" on Amazon and buy the cheapest one - they're all made by the same chinese factory. Just don't pull the elastic straps too hard because the glue that secures them to the sides is weak as shit (I had to super glue them back in).

That was one of my few gripes, I was surprised who ever designed the watch wasn't as OCD about the date display. My other complaint is the word titanium engraved on the side.

I see it differently. For a $100 more I got titanium with a PVD coating. Since it's my daily driver for a long time (I saved up to buy it), those were necessary in my decision.
