What are the extra dials on all these watches with super crowded faces?
My watch only has the time and a tiny date counter.

Am I supposed to like the ones with all the extra crap? I really don't.

I only have two automatic mech watches. I feel that it would be a bit absurd to buy a winder for only two, so what do I do with them when they aren't in use?

should I just shake them for a few minutes once a day, or once every other day?

should I pull out the crown and leave it in that position?

It's symmetrical but has just enough asymmetry to not be boring.

Can anyone comment on the bracelet Hamilton uses on the Khaki Field?
This one in particular
>https://www.amazon.com/Hamilton-H70515137-Khaki-Field-Automatic/dp/B0009ZDP1W/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1473896107&sr=8-4&keywords=hamilton+khaki+field [-+]

I'm trying to decide whether to go with the khaki field or the SARG009.
I like the look of both, the 2824 and 6r15 both have pros and cons, and case finishing is comparable.
So it's down to the bracelet pretty much.
The thing is though, I think Hamilton is a completely garbage brand, and this is literally their only good watch. I even had them send me their catalog and each page was more pathetic than the last.
I like seiko but I do think their bracelets are trash. So it's a toss-up really.

While i do like the dial and caseback the watch case still feels/looks like ass, also it's too lightweight to the point it feels like a toy and the lack of brushed/polished details on the case make it look cheap, maybe i'm just used to my Mako case being brushed/polished but whatever.

I got my new stopwatch today. My other commie chronograph (the left one) stopped working after about a year. I opened it up and there was a wire/spring sticking out. I tried to fix it, but I really had no idea what I was doing. It was only $30 to replace it though. I made sure to get one with Cyrillic on the dial this time, and this one seems to be in better physical condition too. My old one had brass wearing through the chrome in some places, and the acrylic was a bit scratched.

The movement that is used in these has the most satisfying winding that I have ever experienced. The ticking sounds nice too.

Well your Mako is at least twice as expensive, right? Applying a single finish to something is a lot cheaper and easier if course.

Now you need to get your hands on a GS, where the polished surfaces are significantly more nicely polished, and then contrasted with a significantly nicer brushed finish.

Why /g/?

>> No.56634011

The Miyota has a higher beat rate. However I believe it only has an unidirectionally winding rotor, while the Seiko has the Magic Lever.

Also the NH35A has SII (Seiko Instruments, formerly Daini Seikosha) stamped on them as manufacturer, while the original 4R35 has Seiko Time Corp. Not sure if this means any difference in quality or even if they're made at different factories at all.

>> No.56634024

The high beat rate of the 9015 is a definite plus but I think overall they are of similar quality.

>> No.56634159


The Miyota is unidirectional winding, but it has the higher beat rate, it has a micro-adjuster for the regulator, and appears to have been designed ground up for greater accuracy.

If you know how to regulate your own movements or know a watchmaker to do it for you, the Miyota 9015 should.be much easier to get finely regulated and thus should be more accurate.

If you don't even own a case back opener and don't care about accuracy then buy a Vostok or a Seiko 5.

No day, no date.

Doesn't look that dressy to me, though tastes vary of course. Save up for a nice white faced Speedmaster, second hand once can be reasonable.

The Seiko SKX, the new SRP, the Monster and the Sumo and Shogun all have ISO certification as divers.

The steinshits just shamelessly copy the design of a dive watch, they aren't actually divers though. No ISO certification and random water resistance results in post-purchsse pressure testing by owners.

It's $212 for a while dial 28,800 hand-wind only watch:

The white dial version of >>56618381 doesn't seem to be available. That's probably why prices are inflated.

The white bambino with these hands are the best. If you buy another other version, you're doing it wrong.
