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!

honestly steinharts pilots comapred to their divers are overpriced, they have no pressure testing, no depthrating, no added elegance (proper crown, polished dial markers etc) so it should be cheaper. It doesnt even adhere to the retro beadblasting, straight lugs or anything noteworthy which I could pay for.

Is it bad to let an automatic watch stop spinning for an extended length of time? I have two 10-year old 7s26 seikos that I let this happen to and they both are running 10s to 20s fast per day. In contrast, a brand new 7s26 I just got is running +/- 5s per day. I can't remember of the 2 old ones were this accurate when I first for them.

attracting attention to yourself is never a good idea, and these two particular watches look nice while still being unassuming.

i've not been mugged before, but as someone who has been in rough places before, i can attest to less being better. my parents criticize me for wearing simple clothing all the time, but i don't stand out at all.

wear black and dark simple clothing. most of my clothes are dark, and they don't have meme shit on them - i don't dress edgy, i dress simple.

also, keep your hair cut short, and go unshaven a few days. the more unkempt you look, the better. when you look like a prissy white boy you will be a target.

i would sometimes wear a dark flannel jacket, jeans , and steel toe brown work boots to the hick town when i go to walmart, but i dress casual when i am in the town i live in.

What, they ran out of 7750 Valjuoxs?
I can foresee a rehash of this...Hopefully being thinner.

I mean, I know the 7750 is by no means a thin movement, but the Racetimer sits 16mm tall, is this modified 2824 really so much thicker?

Still, atleast it's a top grade 2824 they modded.

Alongside my skx009 it still gets a good bit of wear. I like the 106 case less. The material is okay but the design is worse as far as comfort and style. The bezel is also more clicky in a cheap kind of way. Also, the dial markers are a lot worse on the Casio, as well as the lume. The glossy dial is different, but not necessarily bad. I've treated it like shit and it only has a little knick on the bezel. Pretty sturdy. Not certified, but insane value overall.

Quartz movements are inherently insanely cheap to produce, they're often used in just cheap throw away watches, which by virtue of the fact that they are exactly that, often have poorly designed dials.

quartz in and of itself doesn't necessarily mean a watch is cheap, but it's no surprise when a cheap watch uses quartz.

you can do far better for $300, that much can be said. You can get Accutron Spaceviews for about $300.

i'm sorry, but it's not a nice looking field watch.
there is a reason it costs $70.
seiko are like any other business.
They aren't going to sell a watch at $70 which looks better or even close to as good as anything more expensive that they sell, like an snzg for example. Or they'd collar sales of other watches with a higher mark-up. That would be bad business.

>mechanical is seen as art, there are few high end quartz watches compared to mechanical
>skeletonize movements/ exhibition case backs are gorgeous in high end movements
>the act of winding and setting a watch feels more "involved", i.e, the interaction makes the watch feel more like a tool than a piece of jewelry.
>mechanical movements tend to be heavier. the weight is equated to worth.

cons:

>expect around +/-15 sec a day in modern mechanical. vintage is around +/-45 sec.
>service is recommended every 5ish years. shits expensive.
>generally more pricey than quartz.


Quartz pros:

>cheap. miyota movements are 7$ a pop.
>incredible accurate, +/-5seconds a month.
>a battery change is usually enough. most quartz watches arent worth a service. When it stops working, the movement is replaced. Much cheaper.
>no winding/ little hand setting due to accuracy.
>japs almost killed the swiss because of quartz. those smug fucks had it coming.

cons:

>cheap. nothing cool about having quartz. there is nothing prestigious about having a little circuit board on your wrist.
>can't """"really""""" be serviced. Nobody will waste their time re soldering an electronic module when its busted. This means less connection as an heirloom and less emotion attachment when it has to be replaced. Unless you don't care and are willing to pay 5 times the value of the component.


If you want a simple tool to tell time and don't really care about brand/ mechanics or whatever, get a cheap quartz. whatever. If you're a colossal autist and wants a piece of mechanical engineering on your wrist, then get a seiko 5.
