This thread is about the appreciation of watches, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that is required to make a fine watch.

Actually the name looks shorter than Waltham possibly. Maybe a maker like Benrus would be a better guess. They often has some sort of design or logo accompanying their name on the dial, but sometimes it was alone.

Without sounding too much like a shill while I do.

Steinhart Ocean Vintage Military.
-2824-2 Elaboré movement.
-Sapphire Crystal
-Screw down caseback and crown
-All solid bracelet and end-links
-120 point rotating bezel
-300m WR
-316L Stainless steel case
-Super Luminova hands + dial
-£315/€350/$400

That's the thing in a nutshell.

2 pet peeves about mine.
-The engraving on the caseback rips holy fuck out of my arm when I rotate the bezel.

-End-centre link is squared off, and produces an aesthetic flaw.

But otherwise it's nice enough, wears smaller than my Vostok by a notable margin, but a fair bit larger than my Orient Marshall.
Bezel has nice heavy clicks to it and locks in well.

The AR is near completely useless though. Sat in work the thing might as well be a mirror when I go to check the time, though I am right beneath a fair number of lights, which doesn't help the situation.

Really nice watch for the price though. Only thing that comes near is the Obris Morgan Explorer 2. Which I'm pretty sure is sold out on pre order for the next 5 batches. Wouldn't be surprised if not more.

It's got pushers for changing the dates and such. From my understanding though you're not really supposed to fuck with a perpetual calendar once it's set. There are certain times of the day where if you even try to change the date you can mess up the movement. The JLC has a little indicator on the dial that tells you the hours when you're not supposed to try and set anything.

He seems like a man who can appreciate quality engineering. So wouldn't be too difficult to think that perhaps he may have a hidden interest in watches.

Could also just be that he takes his watches off before a video as to more easily handle some of the weapons without rubbing off or scratching them against his watch causing damage to both.

Going on vacation soon and I want to make a good impression on my future in-laws. Ordered a custom pressed suit with initialed cuffs from Ralph Lauren, now I need a watch. I am trying to decide on these two because its the two I always wanted.

You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops!

I work at an american engineering firm and this is the trend I have noticed. The >$200 watches that young people between 20-30 year olds are basically all Tag Heurers. I've talked to some of them and they basically bought them for the brand and don't know anything about watches. They are also mainly Chinese or Indian that have been living here for most of their life (not FOBs). Some of them don't even know that their watch is mechanical and assume it's quartz. The older folks generally don't care about watches at all and just wear Seiko quartz, Casio G-Shocks, or random mall quartz watches like Michael Kors. The only older person I've seen with an expensive watch wears a Breitling chronograph.

It's based off of the ST2130 ebauche so it's technically Chinese. But yeah, it's an ETA clone with some upgrades: an extra jewel for the barrel arbor and a thinner mainspring which adds 6 hours on top of the 2824 power reserve.

Wtf, this watch suddenly started running fast while on the winder (no problems before on the same winder). The only possible explanation is slight magnetization, since the day before this started happening, I went up to the observation deck of the tallest building in my city (maybe the elevator or broadcasting equipment on the roof?). But why only on the winder? The other watches I put in the same winder didn't get this problem...

The only other alternative I can think of that has a similar design and close to your price range ($40 over) would be an Orient Automatic Aviator, but that would increase the size to 42mm.

If you want to preserve the size, but get a better movement, you'll have to get a SARB or something, but then it wouldn't have the aviator styling and you'd have to more than triple your budget.

Why would I even be remotely triggered by you buying the snakeoil of watches? People buying thousand dollar watches because its "swiss made" is no smarter than the average rich kid whose parents bought them a Tag. Also I heard from a good source that Sinn and Steinhart both German companies btw, get parts from the same suppliers. So you're full of shit when you say the OVM is a mirror, especially when every review on the internet says differently. Because unless you want to admit that Sinn watches are shit as well, then you have no argument. The only difference between Sinn and Steinhart is that Steinhart not overpriced.

So how about you take your shitty little "german" watch, shove it up your diseased ass and fuck off back to poo land?
The .0001 rupees you make per post really can't be worth the humiliation.

And for the record Stienshit is entirely chink derived, except for the movement. They get the bargin bin version of the 2824 then use chinese factory worker pussy sweat as a lubricant.

Their crystals are also from chink land, and when they do bother to use AR lest you burn your fucking retinas trying to read their bastardization of the Submariner dial, they use the shitty kind that barely even makes a difference in refraction- all so they can say "AR coated" on their shitty web 1.0 website.

Lets not even talk about the ceramic bezels that just "mysteriously" crack - but hey, anything to try and be like Rolex and Omega right?
Their bracelets are chink trash, pins with soft pot metal collars that can deform; literally fucking pathetic.

Even our cute little guido autist with lung failure couldn't keep one, they're THAT trash.

No because the magnetization doesn't affect the mainspring or other parts. It only affect the balance wheel, basically the magnet makes it so the balance wheel couldn't turn to its full range of movement. The balance wheel is basically a watch use to measure a full second. Making it so it can't move the full range makes the second go slightly faster.

The whole purpose of a spring-mass balance wheel is to separate driving force and amplitude from oscillation period. Magnetised parts obviously change the period but not through the amplitude.

I don't know the exact mechanism, but I vaguely remember reading somewhere that magnetising the balance spring changes its torque/angle characteristics which would change the period, and so non-metallic springs avoid this, as opposed to making anything else non-metallic.

I have a 6 or so automatics. I've built my own from parts too. I regulate the watches I have rate issues with.

I also used to have a Komandirskie that had a +50 s/d rate new. I adjusted it best I could and eventually gave it away. I've since bought a new Komandirskie and Amphibia and the rate from factory is a lot better than my first one. Pic is my new Amphibia. Average rate is decent but the isochronism is terrible and the rate wobbles around. Might have been due to the fact that when I got it, it wasn't even working and had a metal shaving stuck between two gears.

Bambino = tough as nails, might not be as accurate as the Eco-Drive forcing you to maybe adjust it once every 6 months. If you take care of it holds value pretty well.

Eco-Drive = More accurate, higher power reserve unless you're some sort of neet that stays in doors all day. Value drops to zero the moment you walk out of the store. If you don't plan on selling it the Eco is a better buy because its probably more accurate and more reliable than the Bambino.

Basically this, if you want to get into watch collection as well as the trading aspect of this hobby get the Bambino. Orient retains its value pretty well, yes you will take a hit but not as much as a hit with a Seiko/Citizen. Orient's resale pales in comparison to a Steinhart for some reason however.

I'll keep that in mind.

Honestly, I might just get the Bambino since I care more about the style/value over practicality, even though I may not sell it. Wear that everyday instead of buying two pieces.

But I'm just not sure about the size (over 40mm). I'm a sub40mmfag and it might be slightly big - 38 may be ideal. Any sub 40mm Bambino-like watches in the price range suitable for EDC?

No 3rd party as far as I'm aware makes bracelets with end links specifically molded for Vostoks. There are ones with straight end links that are meant to be universal but will leave a gap. Strapcode is a popular choice but there are others as well.

Yeah that was fine, there was a tiny spring that was bent that controlled the pressure from the barrel when winding, problem was when i took off the top cog it decided to evacuate the movement.
So I'm looking for a donor to get another

Second problem i had was the tensioner for the crown engage system decided that it was going to be made of put metal, it was also bent and as i tried to put it back it became 2 parts.
This was bent enough it didn't even flick off, it just mushed

Tiny ass movement crammed in there, that's for sure. So already dogshit from that.

Are those functional pushers either side of the crown, or just 'decorative' hex screws for no reason?

They are probably to change the GMT hand.

What is the best GMT watch that doesn't cost mega bucks?

Do you see how it says "since 1895" and not "made in germany" or "swiss made" or "Japan made"

That's not a very good sign

Probably.
Chinese seem to believe because they bought the name rights to a company and then resurrected it from the grave in guanjao that it has the same lineage it did in wherever it came from

Watch was supposed to have a 42 hour power reserve.
I think because that spring sometimes let the barrel tension slip it was the issue.
Which explains why sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't.
I'm going to look around for an old citizen 027x donor for parts.
I think that watch may have been the citizen young homer.
But pictures are fucking hard to come by for some reason

Uses a miyota 821a
Slow bph i think it was 22800
No hacking
Indirect drive seconds hand
Parashock jewel system, 21 jewel

It's a solid movement i guess, competes with the eta 2824-2 which is a bit better but not a huge amount.

If you like the dial and you can get it on sale then you won't be screwing yourself

If you can't recognize that the Miyota 821a is a piece of hot steaming garbage compared to even a base grade ETA 2824-2, maybe you should stop talking about mechanical movements as if you know the slightest thing about them.

Ok so that's a modified rhonda because the original gmt thingo was a 24 hour wheel.
It's a quartz, supposedly pretty solid reputation.
I've seen these for $229 usd
If you like them i don't see a reason not to get it.
Probably shop around and you might get one cheaper

Last i checked i was not in charge of picking eta's competitors.

Also you need to learn to read.

I stated the eta was better.
