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!

The Casio you posted is actually pretty decent as a beater. Very shock resistance and has a functional bezel
Timex is dogshit. If the shitty movement doesn't turn you off then avoid them because they use the worst press casebacks in the industry.
It's impossible to change the battery on your own basically.
If you want a steel watch then MDV106 is easily the best cheap quartz you can get.
Diving WR, pretty nice bezel and it has standard lugs if you want to change the strap later on.

It's a cheap Seiko 5 that I bought 4 years ago. I replaced the shitty metal bracelet with a nice leather one. My other watch is a Casio G-Shock.

So last night I posted because a gear fell out and the hands weren't turning when I was fucking around with an ST17 movement.
The gear turned out to be the part responsible for hand-winding the watch, and after cleaning the movement and tightening a screw or two it started running fine again (as much a seagull movement can).

After modifying the dial and getting it all put back together I might see about regulating it, but only time will tell.

Hello /wt/, I'm looking for a watch with this kind of style but a little bit smaller, something like 36-39mm (this one's 44mm) and way more cheaper than this one wich is €349.
I prefer mechanicals but if you have Quartz in mind I guess that would work too.
I also don't mind if is a pre-owned vintage, that would be sweet too, just suggest model names and I'll start searching.

I was offered this as a présent, it's a very old family watch (prob 19th century), and I think it's gold.

Tried to wind it with no luck.

So when is Omega going to reinvent this into something better? The Buzz Aldrin Mars watch project seems pretty dead.

Something like that is really specific to your experience. Depends on how deep the scratches are and how many scratches you've gotten.

And in fact a hypothetical "earthphase" is even more useless as the earth is either 100% visible or completely unable to be seen thanks to the moon being tide locked. The other issue is the shadow the moon casts on the earth is miniscule and in fact only rarely crosses the planet (in the form of a solar eclipse).

Actually never mind the second point, I mixed up the new moon and a lunar eclipse. The point is still true that you can't really have an earth phase because if the moonphase measures one solar day on the moon an earth phase is just a regular 24 hour clock.
