posting image again. I really like the look of this. I guess it's called 'pilot' or 'aviation' style?

I haven't found anything with the seconds as a complication like this one. The orient wingman isn't bad, but doesn't look as nice as this one IMO.

I'm open to alternative suggestions, but for $99 this doesn't seem too bad. I can't find any hate for the brand online.

Holy shit you can't even fucking get your shilling right. It's not a fucking close of anything Unitas is ETA. Unitas was a movement manufacturer who through various mergers and buyouts and such eventually became part of ETA. Some people just like to use the old name to refer to specific movements.

Want to sell my G-Shock GW-6900 Tough Solar Atomic matte black watch for a solid hand winding watch. Is there anything a little more simplistic looking than the Vostok Komandirskie with similar accuracy and overall build quality (willing to negotiate on ruggedness as long as it is well made) in the below $70 price range? I'd be willing to go to $100 if necessary but would like to just spend the $70 I hope to make when selling the GW-6900. Thanks for any and all input.

So this came today and I followed the instructions - place watch on top then hold red button and slowly lift watch upward. Am I doing it correctly? It doesn't seem to make a noticeable difference before and after with the compass test (watch moves the phone compass by about 10-20 degrees). However, it wasn't significantly magnetized to begin with (started gaining ~10 sec a day composted to losing ~2 previously), so hopefully whatever minimal magnetism affecting the movement is neutralized now.

I also did it to my other watches just in case. It has no chance of magnetizing an un- magnetized watch if I don't do it properly, right?

Despite being used in entry/mid grade watches of the time, the 754X series of quartz movements were quite well built in comparison to later models (Like the 7C4X movements, which had many plastic parts that were prone to deteriorate), being made mostly out of metal and were known to be very robust and long living..

I have that exact watch, first watch I bought when getting into the hobby. Had one for 2 years now, pic related.

The strap, despite being cheap, is really good. It breaks in quickly, it's comfortable, it doesn't fray, and the notches don't fray either. Also, it's not that green in person, more olive green than grass green. My picture is fairly colour accurate.

It's a great watch, the styling of the case hasn't grown on me, but it's worth every bit of $120.

Very flat caseback with slightly turned-down lugs, I forget it's there, it's very comfortable.

It's generic polished stainless steel, it'll get scratches, and you'll most likely not care. The glass didn't get scratched until I ground it against a stone wall when moving furniture, and even then only a hairline.

I will say this; if I was going to buy a solar-powered quartz watch again, knowing what I now know, I would have gone for something like a Citizen "excalibur" promaster diver. I don't regret buying the Seiko one bit though.

Oh absolutely.

The Submariner has had so much 'homage' paid by every watch brand going that it's just insulting at this point.

The OVM is what a homage should by in my opinion, a recreation of a rare vintage piece with a great design. And should be done properly, not end up being sold for $15 in walmart. Like any Michael Kors watch should be.

Well so do I but that's because it's so exotic looking. Very retro futuristic, it would look completely at home with a pocket protector and thick glasses.

I'm wondering this too. Especially how Laco, Stowa, MkII, Archimede, and Steinshit compare.

Saved an entire life, for Omega?? They are way more affordable than that, especially used.

Rado for neckbeards?? Now this is getting weird.

It is far from awesome, it's downright repulsing.

I'm buying one of those Indian wind ups for parts.
Every time i bid on one that's had no bids for a week someone bids above my limit.
Then after the auction ends the watch magically reappears in the listings.

Going to fuck with the asshole and find one with no bids, wait until the last 10 seconds and bid 10 cents.
Free shipping and fuck you mr pooloo
