I mean, if you buy more than one watch that's not quartz then you're bound to have to wind it if you alternate.

So if I buy an ETA I'm basically destroying it unless I wear it every day.

There's plenty of single watch winders that's just a box that holds 1 watch. But IMO they aren't worth it for the prices they come at. I got this 4 watch winder that doubles as a watch box for $76. It's almost what you have to pay for a single watch winder anyways.

That was me, I went to sleep before you replied

I bought it from Ebay, which is probably the best place to buy a similar watch. I can't give you a specific model and I think hunting for an exact copy would be hard, especially with a language barrier. It is hard to find specific Soviet watches in huge numbers besides a few makes and models, such as Vostok afibias, poljot de lux and raketa big zero

There are a few good people to buy from, it appears most of them make a living from selling ex Soviet watches. The leather strap that most come with will be pretty shitty,

Give the photos a close look to inspect any wear and tear. It is sometimes a thing to put together the movements from a couple of different watches, like building a watch out of parts, if this concerns you make sure there is a photo of the movement in the listing. Ask me anything mate, I always lurk these threads, usually post with this name on but I haven't been lately

I'm not sure what you are going to get up to with the watch, but if you are actually doing a bit of work, like on a shovel or something it might be a better idea to get a Quartz watch. The 7s26 movement isn't the best at taking a beating (don't take that as gospel)

The original rubber strap on my Citizen (pic related) got destroyed very rapidly despite a sedentary NEET lifestyle.
I replaced it with a very plain rubber strap that has lasted much better even though I'm no longer a NEET.

But I'd like to replace the rubber with something else, what should I get?

The Casio Oceanus is the nicest looking and best made solar charging radio controlled watch. As long as you live within range of one of the 6 signal broadcasters in the world, the Oceanus will automatically adjust itself every night for time, day of the month, and SAT.

This means the watch will remain correct to within less than a second for the entire 10-15+ years it takes for the solar charging battery to need replacement.

It is also one of less than five (all made by Casio) radio controlled watches that show time and date only in decent styling, unlike the plethora of hideous ana-digi or overly busy chronograph radio controlled wstches.

A cheaper option that meets all of the above criteria is the Casio Lineage LIW-130TDJ-1AJF

Not inherently, but the vast majority of quartz watches are dogshit. Casio's oceanus is a rare example of an excellent quartz watch.

There's piles of crap out there; gold-plated chronographs, brand knock-offs, fashion watches, etc. It's really nice when companies like Casio, Seiko, and Citizen make high-quality quartz watches which don't pretend to be something else.

There are watches without screw-down crowns which are rated to 200m.

10bar/100m is the minimum recommended rating to swim with. In my opinion, "sports" watches which can't be taken swimming are stupid.

Autodromo could change the caseback to a screw-in design, and properly seal the crown, but they choose not to. They're selling Miyota 9015 movements in splash-proof cases for ludicrous money.

The number of watches out there with push-in crowns, rated to 100m, is almost endless. Even my cheap quartz Seiko is rated to 100m.

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.

Besides water resistance standards to a minimum of 100 m depth rating ISO 6425 also provides minimum requirements for mechanical diver's watches (quartz and digital watches have slightly differing readability requirements) such as:[20]

The presence of a unidirectional bezel with at least at every 5 minutes elapsed minute markings and a pre-select marker to mark a specific minute marking.
The presence of clearly distinguishable minute markings on the watch face.
Adequate readability/visibility at 25 cm (9.8 in) in total darkness.
The presence of an indication that the watch is running in total darkness. This is usually indicated by a running second hand with a luminous tip or tail.
Magnetic resistance. This is tested by 3 expositions to a direct current magnetic field of 4,800 A/m. The watch must keep its accuracy to ± 30 seconds/day as measured before the test despite the magnetic field.
Shock resistance. This is tested by two shocks (one on the 9 o'clock side, and one to the crystal and perpendicular to the face). The shock is usually delivered by a hard plastic hammer mounted as a pendulum, so as to deliver a measured amount of energy, specifically, a 3 kg hammer with an impact velocity of 4.43 m/s. The change in rate allowed is ± 60 seconds/day.
Chemical resistance. This is tested by immersion in a 30 g/l NaCl solution for 24 hours to test its rust resistance. This test water solution has a salinity comparable to normal seawater.
Strap/band solidity. This is tested by applying a force of 200 N (45 lbf) to each spring bar (or attaching point) in opposite directions with no damage to the watch or attachment point.
The presence of an End Of Life (EOL) indicator on battery powered watches.
Testing diving watches for ISO 6425 compliance is voluntary and involves costs, so not every manufacturer present their watches for certification according to this standard.

>it's the same with "mil-spec"
No it isn't, because ISO have a battery of specific function tests which certify the watches to be useable in the conditions they're intended for.

The fact that you're railing against ISO tells me that you're not a qualified engineer in any speciality.

No, it's really not big talk at all. Anyone who's trained in an engineering field, of any kind, will have to complete courses on quality management, health and safety, and organization.

In the first few years of an engineer's career, they'll be made familiar with around 10 different ISO certifications. They have to be, or else the company they're working for won't be allowed to hold those certifications.

If you don't know how important ISO certs are, you're completely unemployable as an engineer.

>>56600230
anyone with half a fucking brain can look at the specs of a steinhart and figure it can probably pass ISO testing

and there's no official body that oversees watch testing, it's not like the company sends them off to be tested by anyone.

they are two separate specs (mil/commercial) with different part sizes, such as different buffer tubes

they fit in the same fucking threaded hole for one.

the thing that is different is the diameter and it has to do with the manufacturing method
NOBODY uses commercial tubes anymore
currently mostly all AR15 components are built to the same specs and are interchangeable including the military rifles, minus the full auto bits.

mill-spec means built to the TPD, not anything to do with quality

Well, you *did* ask for "something simple". If you wish to complicate matters, you could build the engines with the innards.
https://youtu.be/F3ao5SCedIk

Anyway, I did actually build a kit a long while ago, a Lancaster bomber.

Or how about that F-19 model? Funny thing is, it became one of the most popular ones ever. If SR-71 ever had kittens it would look like F-19.
