Lord Marvel is running a little slow, about -20s per day. May need to either degauss or adjust. Despite the slight inaccuracy, there's nothing quite like watching a 36000 bph sweep.

Help me out watch nerds :^)
Looking to spend some birthday money on a decent watch, and thought you could suggest or help me pick.
Prefer a metal strap, plain silver. No coloured watch face either, prefer white or close.
I really like the ones where strap is kinda thin compared to the watch itself, not the massively chunky ones.
Noice clean design really, and I'm looking to spend less than £150. If I don't get one or find one I really like with that kinda style I'll get pic related - thanks!

The WUS review that shilled this thing said that the PVD is really high quality, since this is actually a $200 watch that is being sold for pennies for some reason.
I had a PVD timex and abused the fuck out of it with none of the coating scratching off, so I think people scratch up their chink watches and then apply that to everything.

The SKX has the same movement as the Seiko 5's, so about equally robust.

Amphibia's are a real gem as even if you hit it with enough force to snap the fucking rotor (highly unlikely) off it'll likely keep working as the base mechanism is basically a Soviet workhouse movement produced nowdays on old Soviet tooling.

Plus, with proper regulation they can easily do +5/-5 secs per day since they are somewhat unaffected by different positions, a trait that both ChChz and 1MWF watches share.

That being said under the assumption you didn't get one that missed Dimity and Ivan's drunken QC process.

I have a couple of working handwound watches, along with a couple of busted Raketa's that i'm saving as "when i get bored enough" plaything. I'll combine them into a working one out of them". One was a gift i got today and somebody both put and incorrect bridge on it and also nigger rigged the pallet fork, should be fun to toy with.

Though handwound watches aren't always thin. I just received my great grandfathers old Type-1 from my grandfather, as it was just lying about in his house.

And it's pretty darn thick. About as thick a Seiko Monster not including the domed acrylic crystal. Movement shot and explanation in the next post.

I've tried working with the WUS autists for a bit but they are also divided as to what exactly were looking at.

What it appears to be is a 1942 ChChz movement, with civilian hands that were repainted with luminous material during the war and an aftermarket dial made somewhere between 1946-1952. Case also appears to be ChChz.

Movement is keeping time surprisingly well.

>>56954164
Maybe a lil bit, i bought a couple of Poljots automatics on somewhat of a binge and i expect to sell one of them. Another options is taking pretty pictures and selling them on WUS for instant shekels.

This is really sad, try not dating a girl who keeps in contact with her exes. The probable scenario in your situation is that he dumped her and she's waiting to somehow someday get back with him. It's rare to find a girl who goes out of their way to coment on an ex;s purchases on facebook if this isn't the case. Meanwhile you are an emotional if not physical cuck , she will never bond with you and will leave you some day in the future. No one in this scenario respects you, not her, not anyone on facebook that is witness to this cucking

Anyway my advise is to not buy a ripoff of his watch and also break up with your gf , go to the gym then find someone who isn't a whore

The amount of crap some photographers go through to make a shitty watch look less shitty.

Also, 99.9% of all watches are gaudy pieces of shit. I have the most boring watch taste on the planet, yet there are basically no minimalist watches with clean, neat looks, which have arabic numbers, but don't drown the watch face in a million billion bells and whistles.

In short, watches fucking suck.

Your type of collection is exactly what I'm trying to avoid doing.

I have one real nice watch and it seems like a bad idea to spend money on lesser pieces. I'd rather just save up for a Rolex.

Well I think of it like I have several different colors and styles to go with several types of outfits. You can have different straps too and change it up when you feel like. That way it never feels like I'm wearing the same thing every day

I like leather in general but a while ago some anon posted a picture of the watch on what I think was this strap and it was very sexy. I wish I saved the pic.
