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!

Different anon chiming in.

The on-board hardware ages quickly (Not necessarily planned obsolescence) with each software update making it less and less usable (especially on earlier models), the screens at times are not legible enough in conditions of harsh sunlight (Depends on the model), subpar battery life leading to both it failing to be a reliable time keeper and daily charging and the limited to no existent waterproofing is a big nope.

Now, the subpar battery life that lasts between 24~48hours at most depending on usage is the biggest obstacle here. Since they must be constantly connected to a mobile phone to receive alerts on emails, messages, call and etc the battery life will drain quickly. 3G supporting models are an interesting idea, but don't quite nullify that issue.

As they sit right now they aren't quite mature enough, with loads of space to improve. Though it seems that most companies have slowed down on this lately.

>>56287297
I understand that these are more guidelines than anything, but they do explain as to how a watch strap is held in place (more or less)

Guess i ought to add a few lines for dummies when i release the next update of it. Updated version with is somewhere on my laptop, which i can't seem to find after moving (Which i hoped i didn't forget at the base).

trouble with Apple products is that before new hardware comes they push out OS upgrades that cripple old machines to provide a more dramatic """improvement""" for new hardware. I would not put past them that they even slowed the clock.

Anyways the hardware is way overkill. A 1 GHz Snapdragon is only used because the programmers for these watches are the equivalent of the frankenwatch "repairmen". The result is more bad programmers and hardware that sucks batteries dry in a day.

It is strange to think that the first spreadsheet ran in 48 KB on a 1 MHz 8-bit processors but then again that was a different class of programmers.

It's a cool watch, keep in mind those indices and hands are polished metal, and not actually black, just look black at certain angles.

It's 41mm across, 47.5mm lug to lug. Not small, but not gigantic. just keep that in mind if you are small-wristed.

What can anybody tell me about this? Got it as a gift a few years back, never found much about it or the brand, and the site has long since failed. If it is just unknown, how is the accuracy? Been testing it out all today, it appeared to be running alright until a sudden huge deviation. Could that be from lack of winding? Its an automatic, but I like to wind it once a day at least, if not 2-3 times. Is that bad?
Any help would be appreciated.

The most likely answer is because it's a """""quality""""" chink movement. Also you shouldn't need to hand wind an automatic watch at all except for when first putting it on after not having worn it for a couple days or more.

Are you referring to the Amphibia? Since that's an automatic.

Otherwise, the modern Komandirskies (2414A movements) are pretty good and the slightly older ones that have both older 2414A and 2409 movements are as well.

The much older 22XX based Komandirskies are alright in most cases, but being older they are much prone to being in shit shape.

Batterymonkey anon here. Every time a Timex comes in for a battery change I shudder knowing 60% of the times they don't start up, because they're busted and I'll have to go through the song and dance again that I wasn't the one that fucked it up.

Their internals are garbage, the movement is to cheap to be even made in China, it was thrown together in the Philippines, and the whole design is poorly thought out, putting them together is a pain in the ass, and like I said a lot of times they're just dead.

Both are more or less equally reliable, but has their own advantages.

The Komandirskie (or Amphibia) is much more rugged and can take a beating, can easily achieve good accuracy when regulated, and the scratches can be buffed out. Also, much cheaper.

The Seiko 5 has a better accuracy out of the box, mineral crystal compared to acrylic, display caseback, and a slightly higher beat movement (21600 vs 19800, not like it really makes that big of difference). All models are automatic.

Both can survive a long time without servicing, Seiko 5's were shown to run 10~20 years, while Vostoks are advertised (rightfully so) to have a 10 year service interval.

Waterproofing wise they are both rated the same but i'd trust the Dirskie more, since they were shown to survive up to 5ATM in some cases.

It could be magnetized to start with, and you need to do a few modifications to fit a 4R36 (clearance for the movement, being different dimensions).

Just swap the movement yourself.

What you need:
-caseback wrench
-hand remover tool
-plastic dial protector (you can just use any kind of plastic lying around)
-tweezers (preferably brass, non-magnetic and can't scratch steel)
-movement holder
-rodico
-hand setters

Steps to replace movement:
-unscrew caseback
-use a toothpick or brass tweezers to push in a button that releases the crown
-pull out crown while crown release button is pressed
-remove the entire movement from the watch case
-put movement in movement holder dial up
-remove hands using hand remover with dial protector
-disengage dial latches on the side of the movement using a small screwedriver
-remove dial
-install dial on new movement and lock into place by engaging the latches with a screwdriver on the sides of the movement
-install hands using rodico (stick hands to rodico and then stick-em to the pins), and then push them on firmly with hand setters
-install new movement into the case
-screw in caseback, make sure gasket is in place

The old ones aren't great quality (including my first). The newer ones are much better, but they are overpriced. If you can get them for half off what Fossil wants to charge, they aren't bad.

At least they are making an attempt to making things that are a step above fashion watches. No doubt they have a big hole to dig themselves out of.

On a related note, they now have swiss made stuff that starts at around $500 I think, some of it looks cool... some is just weird.

I think part of the reason they went nuts starting other brands (Michael Kors, Burberry, etc) is so that they could still make fashion watches but use Fossil to try to get into 'real' watches. In the end, they probably should have just chosen a different brand name, but in the end it is what it is. It's a budget mechanical watch they are charging a little too much for.

The quality has very slightly improved over time, but that's the quality of the Chinese manufacturers that has improved. Not necessarily the movements nor the pricing. They still do produce the same disgusting Tag huehue tier models along with more plain looking models which are both overpriced for what they offer.

And the so called Swiss line usually has the same Ronda/ETA quartz as lower grade Swiss watches (which are inferior to Jap quartz) and automatics with clones of the 2824 (STP1-11). The automatics aren't too bad but charging 400~500$ for a base grade 2824-2 is too much.

Tough choice.
What movements do they each use?

>> No.56316054

>>56315966
Both automatic.

Tissot is ETA 2824-2

Not sure on exactly what movement the seiko uses other than "japanese automatic"

You should consider a sea-gull. The movement is a clone of the 2824 and the guilloche is nicer than the tissot imo.

Frederique Constant makes excellent guilloche dials as well. Sea-gull's guilloche dials are quite comparable in quality.

I'm so angry because there was a nice FC watch that was over $130 cheaper yesterday than it is today on amazon.

Seems like an overpriced lower quality Orient.

The one in that pic is $99 from long island watch.

I don't like its back, the fact that you can pop it off with a knife makes it feel cheap. Also I doubt other parts of it is higher quality as well. For a 39mm you can probably get a Seiko 5 Canvas or a Timex Explorer(Military) if you don't like mechanicals.
