The more I think about it the more convient it is to have music controls/fitness garbage and shit on your wrist. But I like my mechanical watches too much not to wear them.
So hipster faggots can wear 60 armbands on each wrist and I can't wear a watch on each?
The only smartwatch I would be interested in though is the pebble classic.

>Seiko and PADI share a passion for the safety and enjoyment of divers and the marine environment through the support of Project AWARE™. Now, PADI and Seiko have partnered to release two PADI Special Edition diver’s watches this autumn.

>The Seiko Prospex PADI Special Edition Kinetic GMT Diver’s SUN065 uses Seiko’s Kinetic technology. The Seiko unique movement uses a rotor, powered only by body movement, to charge the battery. This watch features a modern version of the legendary two-layer case first seen in 1975 and affectionately nicknamed for it’s superficial resemblance to a can of “Tuna.” The build quality is excellent with clear dial printing, a smooth bezel and a solid crown.

>The Seiko Prospex PADI Special Edition Automatic Diver’s SRPA21 pays homage to a true classic: the 1970’s Seiko 150m mechanical diver’s watch. Its unique case and dial design led divers to nickname this model the “Turtle.” The watch features Seiko’s trademark easy-to-read, wide, clear hands. It’s a clean and simple diver’s watch, destined to become a trusted friend.

>Both special edition models gracefully feature PADI’s characteristic red and blue color on the dials and the bezels, and the PADI logo on the dials.

>Already, those digital airwaves are buzzing about these new analog watches; don’t miss the opportunity to own a piece of watch making and dive training history.

You should have bought it, for whatever price, then when it arrived taken clear photos of the scratches and submitted a "not as described" complaint. You even have the reassurance from him that they were *not* scratches, so he would have literally forced himself to give you a full or partial (like the $5 you wanted) refund, when complaints are already nearly guaranteed to be met regardless. Then when it was over you could have told him to not be a smug asshole next time, forcing your hand. Then just polish off your new watch with some toothpaste and loathe in self-satisfaction.

The dial is pretty beat and the 3/6/9 indexes are probably a custom job, because the FAGGOT who did it likely used superglue and marked the dial at 9 (also 9 is crooked), but those are real tiny diamonds set in the middle of indexes.

The caseback pick is of the inner side, the outer is scratched the fuck up. Movement is fine, I only had to replace three parts, the cannon pinion, the stem and the intermediate wheel for the date mechanism.

The mark at 9 is probably glue. The mark at 8 is probably moisture or dirt ingress. See the crack on the crystal at 2? I believe that crack was originally at 8, but I have taken the crystal off once.

I'm not sure if I can restore the original 12atm WR, the original crown is lost, and I believe the acrylic crystal is proprietary to Super Compressor cases, a normal domed acrylic won't do.

What's the cheapest price for a watch with the movement one step above the 6R15?
What movement is it, is it a luxury one (decorated, regulated etc.)?

>> No.56126053

>>56125916
All depends.
Usually more accurate movements/ higher grade movements tend to have more decoration simply to set it apart aesthetically from the less accurate variants.

Miyota 9015, 6R15, and ETA 2824 are all on par at the base level.

2824-2 Elaboré is present in the OVM, priced at about £315/$400

6R15 is present in the Obris Morgan Explorer 2, priced at about £280, when actually available.

And the 9015 gets around so much I can't even think of a decent example.

6R15 has the longest running life, and is probably the most reliable.

2824 blows them both out of the water at the top grade though, even a push at Elaboré in terms of accuracy.

If you're looking for something "One step up" from the 6R15, then you're really going to be looking at something toting a Top Grade 2824.

Sell your smart watch and buy yourself something nice, or save a bit more money on to of that, and get yourself something even nicer.

As far as fake watches go, they're all shit. Some franken-watches are nice (ETA/ETA clone movements, real cases, real dials, hands, etc), but I wouldn't buy one myself.

Too much negative space on the dial. The 24 hour scale in the white version is basically invisible, and there's absolutely no texture or reflective surface for light to interact with, so the whole thing looks boring, unlike the JLC Master Control it's imitating.

So the lugs on my Casio gshock rangeman broke. Guess that's what I get for using 3d printed NATO strap adapters. Casio won't replace it as a defect because it's considered external. And my 2 year Amazon warranty ended the beginning of the month. Initially I thought the adapter broke so I had bought 2 metal adapters for $40 and a metal faceplate bezel to match for $80. Only to find the internals broke this morning.
Fuck me right. Can't return the faceplate to China and I can't return the 3d printed parts to shapeways.
Oh well, guess I have to buy a completely new watch to use these new parts.

How about Orient Bambino. You can get it off creation watches or longisland watches. There may also be other sellers that have a decent deal on them but those two generally do.

As a general rule with less expensive watches, things that are 'gold' are plated, and may look worse with wear.

Something like a ER24005W from Creation would be great on it's own for like $130~, or if you want to push towards that 250 dollar mark you could include something with the watch. Like silver cufflinks or a silver tie clip or money clip.

Buzz Aldrin has been working on developing and arguing for a Martian mission since like the 1970s.

There is even a potential Martian trajectory method and transit vehicle named after him, that he helped devise.

That old 90+ pilot knows more about what it takes to get to Mars than most. I would say his input is valuable.

I have that exact model. If you're not above a little niggering then you can get a new one for dirt cheap.

>Buy a fucked up one on CL for $20-50
>Buy a new one from target
>Return the shitty one a couple days later
>New watch for cheap

I literally have no morals when it comes to big business so call me a dirty nigger all you want.

I'll take your word for it. Why wouldn't I?

Why are they so much cheaper?

the pebble was and always will be garbage. it's not even in the same category as other smart watches. more like a 'barely passed high school' watch.

>Tudor now uses their own in house movement
Only in the Black Bay, Pelagos, and North Flag. The Black Bay 36, the entire Style line, the entire Glamour line, the Ranger, all the chronographs, the entire Advisor line, the entire Clair De Rose line, and entire Classic line still use ETA movements.

So i like the look of the alpinist, and I'm a hiker/mountain climber.
What are some other watches that share a similar aesthetic?
What are some better automatics for a long range trek?
Price is not really a consideration i just want people's opinions on options

Both Elabore and Top are considered to be dogshit in the horologic world. The 2824 in the BB is Chronometre class. There is not much difference besides the incabloc(besides glucydur balance which is just a differen color, no performance improvements) which if you notice on the clear back Steinhart is present. So yea until Sinn started using Chronometre class ETA then its still the same shit as Steinhart.

The Black Bay was not COSC certified until they got the new inhouse movement.

They only ship Sinns and some other brands they carry within EU. So double check. If you're in EU then you're fine of course.

They're all fucking toys
Literally the only thing that made the plebble worth the 30 bucks was syncing with my phone calender with vibe alerts and maybe the music control.
You literally can't even replace the batteries on these things. What a joke

Good choice
Now avoid all the low end shit and save for a speedy or something
