the 3 o'clock/date window/still putting the fucking military time and ruining that whole circle is the real dealbreaker for me. i like to think of the apple-like font more as an armitron-like font but i don't have anything against apple and their products that just twerk. the strap would be in the trash as quickly as i could get it off. i was also toying with the idea of a coward c5 slimline but wish it were 37-38mm instead of 40

https://www.christopherward.com/watches/dress/c5-malvern-slimline-range

also not a huge fan of their marketing but it's a cheap handwound that would be better than the only hw i currently have, a curry hmt

I used to have a parnis, the finish was actually really good. The only down side was the movement they used was massive and the watch was too bulky for me so I gave it away. A parnis with a miyota might be interesting, get the parnis finish but not the usual parnis bulk.

So I'm looking to get one of these badboys, since it's all operator as fuck, and I'm just enough of a faggot to want something like that. Got a couple of questions to anyone who's got/had a G-Shock watch before, since this would be my first one.

Are they really as cartoonishly fuckhuge as people make them out to be? This one in particular is 17.5mm thick, and that sounds kinda extreme.

I've heard that putting on nato/zulu straps on these can be quite a bitch, and sometimes nearly impossible, how's it actually?

And finally, how useful is the 6-band atomic timekeeping thing? I get what it does, and it sounds cool in theory, but is it really worth paying an extra 150 bucks just for it?

Alright watchfags this looks like the place to go.

My poorfag Seiko 5 has fucked up and the face now turns freely in the case. Went to see low-level watch guy and he said that some pillar or something had broken and I'd have to send it off. Movement seems to work fine.

I want to know how fucked it is and how much it'd cost to send off and fix.

The dial attaches to the movement by way of essentially, plugs. One of these has snapped, and now it moves freely, as you have said. It'll be a cheap job, just fish out the pegs from the broken dial, and put a new one in.

It just means that you won't need to set the watch's time due to error if you're in range of one of the 6 atomic radios it's able to sync with, because it'll generally be correct to about 1 ms slow for every 100 miles away you are from the signal. You'll still need to adjust it every time you change timezones.

So it saves you a couple time adjusts per year.

I was afraid of that. I still like the way it looks and all, but why the fuck couldn't they make it a bit smaller. Then again, I've seen actual soldiers wear those in various photos from war zones and shit, so I guess it's not so big as to be impractical.

>>56355911
Thanks. So basically I could just skip the top of the line versions and go for cheaper ones that are identical in every way except for not having the timekeeping thing. I assume the watches are good enough to keep the time reliably enough with the occasional manual adjustment by using an online atomic clock?

Yes. It's only a couple times a year you would adjust it unless you're trying to maintain sub-second accuracy. And if you're in Asia or middle East outside if the China band, Canada too far away from Colorado, or anywhere in the southern hemisphere it will not work.

Mostly the blocky nature of said model is the biggest issue with it, plenty use the 6900 series Gshocks and the 8900 series are relatively common.

Though the bulk are regular Casio's, which are very abundant, and other simple quartz watches. (along with the local SKX clone)

I walk around with either a Seiko diver (Monster, SKX, soon a Neo-turtle) or an Amphibia. And a good buddy of mine occasionally wears a soviet era Dirskie that i cleaned up and regulated.

But wow, a watch with a bit of the romance and serviceability of a mechanical watch with the accuracy of a quartz. And no need for a battery, yet electricity is generated through spring tension?
What are the downsides?

G-Shocks really are overengineered, and I don't think you really care about knowing your watch would survive things that would kill you. You're essentially paying more just to give the guy that guy will loot it off your dead body.

Goddamn that is truly fucked. Welcome to the world of water damaged dial and full disassemble required.

It's gonna be pricey. HOWEVER, even if you're traveling the cost will pretty much depend of the amount of time you let it marinate like that before a watchmaker can clean it.

If I were you I'd either take it to a local watchmaker right now or send it back home and ask someone the favor to take it to a watchmaker where you live, depending on how much time you're going to remain where you actually are.

After that, get drunk and forget about it.

P.s DON'T try to dry it exposing it to the sun or to another source of heat, or you'll damage the dial furtherly.

Over three years, I've been sent on over a hundred operations under a variety of climates to search and rescue missing travelers in the remotest places of the planet. My daily life was crawling in the mud, climbing snowy peaks, crossing frozen rivers, wading through jungles, jumping from waterfalls, running through thick forests, diving to the ground, and felling on just about anything that exists. I also got caught in an avalanche on the slope of a volcano, I jumped from and crashed in all kinds of vehicles including trains and planes, I've been into countless fights, shot at, mortared at, and I've been exposed to corrosive chemicals more than once.

My terrorist watch only died a week before I retired, and that was only the battery. The strap had to be replaced four times though, yet it saved me from injuries every single time. I actually wore a Timex as my main watch, with the terrorist Casio on my right arm serving as a GMT and date reference, and both are still ticking.

G-Shocks are just overengineered, and considering the design of standard Casios has continuously improved, modern ones are now just as overengineered.

Operators with G-Shocks are just cringeworthy, especially how they always look so brand new while everyone else has beat up F91Ws.

Odd question, might one of you be the same Tasmanian guy who wanted the Green LM special?

Thanks, my watchmaker is very fond of Universal Geneve's movements, he'll be able to service it just fine.

That's funny, are you a watchmaker-student? Do you study at Schoonhoven? I want to go to that school too next year.

At the open days I did hear alot about the building being completely renovated. I also love old clocks so that isn't a issue.

I'm really looking foward to it next year.

>It's bulky
An understatement. It looks like a chimney from the side.

>and not exactly pretty.
I like the face, especially the GMT hand. Regrettably no date. Also the profile ruins it completely.

I just ordered a new stopwatch because mine broke a few months ago. This time I got one with cyrillic on the dial. I think it has the same movement.

I am not sure what happened to my old one. I kept it in my pocket every day and used it a couple times every week. One day it just stopped resetting. I liked it a lot before it broke, the winding was very satisfying and it made a nice ticking noise.

What movement?

I wouldn't
You can get a black bay and a speedy for the price of one. I didn't mention service costs

"cool" and "nice" are two different metrics.

I think a Pagani Zonda looks "cool" but is by no means "nice".

Where something you feel to be visually appealing if that is all you want to wear a watch for, but by no means buy and wear something because it looks edgy and "cool"
