Spring Drive has an electronic circuit to regulate accuracy. Technically its more accurate but a lot more things can go wrong. Overall a Rolex will only lose 1-2sec a day, spring drive brings it down to maybe 0.75 sec. It's up to you if the trade off is worth it.

>> No.56184554

Digital and quartz are two different things.

Quartz is like 1minute per month for absolute dogshit chinese 1 dollar movements. Sometimes worse. That is around Rolex accuracy or worse.

+-30 seconds a month for something like a F91W, one of Casio's least accurate watches. About the same or slightly worse than some very high end expensive watches.

Meanwhile most any quartz more expensive than that will be around twice as accurate or better, +-15 seconds a month. So like your 40 dollar g-shock is there. That's the same as a Spring Drive, +-15 seconds a month.

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.

>Is Victorinox a liked brand around here?
They have some decent pieces, but are nothing special by any means, some of their stuff is just a little pricey considering they're pretty basic. Their cheapest mechanical is priced at near as makes no difference €650. No where I can find is the movement listed on their website, the sites that tell us the movement (Turns out to be the good old go-to, 2824-2) but fail to tell us the grade. I am by no means an expert on identifying this stuff, so could someone, from the basis of movement decoration or any markings that may be visible, tell us the grade in pic related?

That and I kind of get the vibe that they're a brand more known for their pocket knives.

Why on Earth would you spend so much on an old watch that plain and boring. If it were say a Royalite, Bubbleback, Observatory or any combination of the three I'd say get it for 3k, but that's literally a Seiko 5.

>> No.56195347

It should top out at around 5k-6.5k. It has the original Rolex bevel meaning its almost completely unpolished which means the owner kept it in a safe and never wore it. Sadly not wearing a Rolex will tend to cause it to have mechanical problems, and there is no service history. If there was a service history the watch could have easily caught $7k.

Are you fucking kidding me? That Bubbleback looks great! Only thing it has is a bit of fading on the dial (I think 13 to 24 was originally red), blackened numerals and a bit of radium burn.

Also an expensive watch will last longer, since it'll likely be better designed in overall, steel cased, screwdown back, higher quality dial, better movement, non-retarded crystal/lugs, no gluing, etc.

the battery change isn't even simple like other cheapo Invicta watches. They were showing this at this years Baselworld, you basically need to unscrewed the 4 locking screw for each watches. Afterward there's a gasket that you need to be aware of and the face is fully exposed so you don't want to touch that either. You have the remove the entire movement by pressing the divet and removing the 4 screw down crown. The mainwatch is easiest to change the battery for, and they should just make it so all 5 batteries are linked. However they want to make this crap unnecessarily complicated. Also good luck trying to sell an Invicta POS for $1000.

No idea why there is even an Invicta booth, they should never have been invited.

Pretty much up there with the Pelagos in terms of sheer quality. However at an affordable price. The Ocean One T 500 comes with Steinhart's proprietary SWISS MADE Soprod movement. The watch houses a domed Sapphire crystal specially pressurized to withstand 500m verified by DIN. The dial is matte black with blue accents complimented with Super Luminova blue Lume. The Bezel is ceramic and has lume applied as well protected by sapphire for maximum scratch resistance. All of this for around $500 shipped this watch is hard to beat.

You should just get it over with and start tripfagging, it's obvious you want to build a reputation here.

>The Ocean One T 500 comes with Steinhart's proprietary SWISS MADE Soprod movement
You mean another ETA-2824 clone.

>The watch houses a domed Sapphire crystal specially pressurized to withstand 500m verified by DIN
Crystals with non-domed surfaces can withstand depths of 2000m, and the fucking crystal isn't "pressurized", you have no fucking clue what you're talking about, you're just saying words.

>Steinhart also has one of the best if not best resale value out of any watch, so buy with confidence.

>> No.56203801

ok so what's wrong with the watch?

>> No.56203813

It's faked, by the way. Not worth more than $20.

No, he personally collects and restores mainly Raketas.

>Steinhart's proprietary SWISS MADE Soprod movement

You're literally making shit up. Steinhart has nothing to do with Soprod. Soprod is a movement manufacterer that's been around since 1966 and is currently owned by the Festina Group.

No I don't think so.
Have had good service from him in the past. Even took a watch off auction for me when requested and invoiced me for it.
Haven't gotten one fake yet, bought 4 so far and received 2 so far went back and bought 2 others

Some of the steinhart stuff is OK, in the same way that some dicks OK.
But if you keep ramming it down people's throats they will probably not like you very much

im looking at Samun_povt as you suggested but fuck if he doesnt slap 100+ on anything as soon as its 24h

>> No.56203995

Yeah, he knows what he has so he knows how to price things. You can at least know what you're getting is all original and recently serviced. You can of course buy elsewhere but it's riddled with franken watches and those with fake parts if you don't know what to look for.

Fair enough. I ended up buying this fucking meme because it was 35$. he's got some nice watches.

Literally an idiot.

Okay sounds good.

It only tells you when you have a message etc doesn't it? If so a £12 chink fitness tracker can manage that so I imagine it's fine.
