Pretty much.
I love the Amphibia, though.
I'll probably sell/trade the Citizen soon to help fund some kinda' Seiko. Really like the SARX, SARB, SARG007, and Turtle. The SBPY133 is sweet, too, but hard to find.

Go for the regular display. From what I've heard, the negative one is a bitch to read in harsh light. Also, the negative one just looks kinda gay.

Sure, they look similar, but I'd hardly call it a clone. The similarities end at the generally rectangular shape and black color. On the Fossil, there's no date indicator, the crown is grooved and tapers, the crystal and case are angled at the top and bottom, the bracelet isn't at all flush with the case, and the hands and indices are entirely different.

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 2824 in your Steinhart is not found in Tudor or Sinn watches.

Steinhart Ocean 1's are trading at $400-500, and cost 380 Euroes from source, not including shipping.

>> No.56155452

That's the VAT pricing, people here in the US is exempt. And shipping is $30, it was free earlier when they updated the website. So total is like $350 for the Ocean one.

>The ETA 2824 is not found in Sinn watches
Okay I guess Sinn uses Miyota or some Hong Kong piece of shit movement which is worst. And yes the older BB uses ETA 2824. I highly doubt you know anything about watches if you think Sinn is better than Steinhart.

>> No.56155455

>Steinhart has better quality metal and movements
They use Elabore movements, which are the polished turds of ETA's offerings.

They also use 316L stainless, by no means a bad choice, but Sinn make far better steel, they're probably the current leaders in case technology for scratch resistance and resistance to moisture ingress.

>> No.56155466

You have no idea what you are talking about. Sinn uses the exact same Elabore movements, in their watches.

>> No.56155476

>Okay I guess Sinn uses Miyota or some Hong Kong piece of shit movement which is worst
No, they buy in Top or Chronometre-grade ETA movements, and some of them they heavily modify.

Their Diapal line all have lubricant-free escapements, and they modify 7750's with functions like central-counting minutes, and 24-hour subdials.

>> No.56155520

You do know that trucks use de-tuned mustang engines, right?

You know the difference between a standard ETA-2824, and one with a lubricant-free escapement kept in a non-humid environment is? About 4x the service interval, and a huge decrease in amplitude variation during those intervals.

It doesn't matter if the movements use the same mechanical systems, it's how well those systems function which matters.

By god. Grasping for those straws now eh shill?

Let me give you some advice.
Educate yourself.

As of the moment you just seem like a shitty troll.

>316L is better than Sinn Steel
316L is the base standard for cases, nothing special about it, but it's not some melted down pepsi cans either.

>Same movements
Same range, very different in practice.
2824-2 Elaboré will manage +/-7 seconds a day average.
2824-2 Top, +/-5 seconds average a day.
Chronometer. Which says it all for it's daily accuracy, within +/-2 seconds.

The only thing that remains the same with these movements is the layout of them, they all have varying quality components resulting in such margins between grades.

>Attacking Seiko so violently
Seiko is one of, if not the best loved watch brand in the world, and that doesn't change here. They make good watches, and they mark them correctly.

This is you.

And for the love of fucking god, stop telling people to buy a Steinhart that is nearly twice of what they're looking to spend already.
And SKX can be had for £180, an OVM will run you £315. Stop already. You're pathetic kid.

Oh, you mean the one that's an ETA 2824 with its best rate lowered to 21,600 bph, an overpowered mainspring that put too much torque on the movement, a bunch of parts replaced with cheap plastic, and a plastic escapement that cannot be regulated once it leaves the factory?

This is probably frowned upon in this thread, but I bought a watch from China for 30 bucks. It arrived and I really liked. However, it behaves a bit strange.
In the first week it would lose about 30 seconds of time a day, to the point that I was going to return it. However, in the second week I tuned it to time and left it on my table for a few days and it hasn't lose or gained a single second. Is this normal? I don't think it has anything to do with being left on the desk, it lost time before when I just left it alone to test its accuracy.

I really can't think of a bad thing to say about it aside from the bezel being a bit stiff for my liking. It's a nice and heavy piece. Wonderful bracelet, brilliant clasp, beautiful domed sapphire, great lume, nice accuracy.

Open the back of the watch, push the stem release look up what movement you own and how to do it, there should be a divot that you can push with your fine tweezers.

Steinhart is really not shit, only ignorant people who values watches by how much they pay would call them shit.



Here's two of the MOST respect watch reviewers in the world. These people between them have hundreds of thousand dollars worth of watches. Yet they put their name on the line praising Steinhart.

-2824-2 Elabore, great movement one of the best. Steinhart also added in an Incabloc and Dufour Balance
-Sapphire crystal on a watch this cheap, almost virtually impossible most watch in this price range use mineral or "HARDEX"
-316L stainless steel the same used in Tudor and Rolex
-their divers are tested for 300m by DIN
-their pilots are tested for impeccable accuracy
-most Steinharts retain its value, with the majority increasing in value

No Steinhart is not shit, not by a long shot. Sinn and Seiko shills call them shit because they are scared Steinhart would put them out of business. The most people find out about Steinhart the more of a threat it is to truly shit companies like Sinn and Seiko.

I personally do not think it is worth the current prices people are charging for it. For the ~$280 USD I payed to buy it when it came out I think it was an OK deal.

it looks cheaper than the calender/moon phase complication watches that I like but that's only because it is.

to me it just doesn't look as finished as a complicated watch should in my opinion

Hours, minutes, seconds, date, month, power reserve and either the deviation or even a regulator(?)
That's my educated guess

seems like a cop-out because even a triple calender is too much for them to make cheaply. I do remember some anon was looking for the week counter complication though. A Zeppelin quartz watch also does this if he is still around and looking.

Not sure. His real name is Paul Pluta and Archie is supposed to be a character, but I don't know how many of the real world he brings into the Archie character. Probably a lot.

Archie is supposed to be the Filthy Frank of horology.

the last one is an equation of time indicator, it shows the difference between apparent and mean solar time. the difference between when the sun goes down according to the clock and in real time. so at the time pictured the sun goes down 10 mins later then when the watch would indicate with the hours/minutes.

Fuck, is ETA really this hard to handwind or did I fuck something up with the oiling of the mainspring or reversing wheels? Or fucked up the crown? Rotor winding seems fine though.

>> No.56173981

Should be easy to hand wind.
Might be compressing one of the gears to the spring barrel, or the spring barrel.
Please don't try to force it, i was always warned about the crown stem breaking.
Could also be that the spring is fully wound already too, which would mean breaking the spring of over wound

These are my beaters for work, then I have the Seiko 5 sport which I also got earlier this week, and now the mako. Wanted to get a mechanical movement, and got the seiko, wasn't considering a dive watch but then copped the mako on a whim and am glad I did, I really like it so far.

Need some help /wt/. I contacted the owner of Celadon (Ben) a few months back to place a purchase for the third series Imperial. We talked about method of payment etc. and I was waiting for his response of when he'd want me to preform the transaction via PayPal. This was more than a few months back and he hasn't replied and I honestly don't know what to think.
Maybe am just looking for reassurance from another Imperial owner since I know a few people here are owners of some of the series. But did anyone else experience such long waiting times?

That's another concern, that somehow the greasing of the mainspring barrel wall is not good enough, and the mainspring doesn't slip soon enough.

A news paper around here brought to light that some of the major customer groups for high end watches were foreign prostitutes. They use watches as an easily transportable means for taking money out of the country. On returning to their home countries they convert the watches to cash and this fuels the second hand market.

It is therefore essential that they know a good watch from a fake.

Not surprisingly this is a market the watchmakers do not talk about.

There is something very wrong in the world when the best customer service comes from strippers. In case someone misunderstands: the problem is not that strippers provide service in addition to their "service", the problem rather is that few else cares enough to give good service or care about their fellow human.

Why do som many diving watches have blue faces? Considering that blue-green has the longest transmission in water this would provide worse contrast to the lume than a red face, even a red lumed face.

Very nice. Why is it that pocket watches typically are elegant and have a lot of information yet without being busy? Wrist watch designers have much to learn.

>counting weeks but not the month

> I do remember some anon was looking for the week counter complication though.
That would be me. Still looking.

>A Zeppelin quartz watch also does this if he is still around and looking.

Mmmmm, I will be looking for a while there. My tastes are rather specific. I feared I would have to program a smart watch even though they need daily recharge. Ugh.

Due to them all being hand made and precision tuned, it takes a long time for a watch to be complete. Thus their demand is exceedingly higher than supply compared to other brands. People just don't like waiting for a watch.

It looks old, but maybe not so cheap. It could be mid-range for the time. Nor much info about Mon Réve, the company seems to have existed at least into the early sixties, your seems earlier than that.
