I needed some cash for an improvised trip to Paris with my gf back then, now ex, so I sold it for 280€ on eBay quite fast. It was a mint condition beautiful 31659 if I recall correctly, but the hacking didn't work and the hairspring did a really annoying noice all the time. I thought it was a good idea to get rid of it before the movement exploded in my own hands.

What do you guys think of Girard Perregaux?
On this pic I'm wearing my dad's.
I remember when we traveled together all the way from Spain to NYC in 2008 just to buy it from some Jewish premium watch merchant in Brooklyn. It was a cool experience, first time I saw an Orthodox Jew with the funny hair and stuff.
Nowadays I think he should have gotten a Patek instead but he got this for $10000 and it was apparently a very good deal.

maybe it's difficult to believe for Americans, but there is a lot of rich people in Spain. Europe's richest man, Amancio Ortega, is a Spaniard for example.
You could say the wealth in my country is quite inequally distributed compared to other EU countries.
Anyway my parents are just upper-middle class, maybe upper in my region. My dad was the regional manager of a national bank, now retired and my mum is a plastic surgeon.

Yes luxury time pieces are a scam, the omega speedmaster I bought? Worth tops 800$ in real value for materials and quality. That Rolex I own? I guess a little more than that Omega since it isn't china made kek

But god damn watches are like art, nobody will understand why you would pay so and so much for some stupid painting (I used to have dealings with art collectors, and people paid over 50k for stupid pencil sketches my 3 year old niece could do better)

Even if one were to grant the idea that your speedmaster is worth vastly less than what you paid for it in "real value for materials and quality" that doesn't make it a scam.

If I advertised oranges for sale for 150 bucks each, it wouldn't be a scam either, it would just be really fucking overpriced oranges. The people who buy them were not 'scammed out of 150 bucks,' they simply made a choice to overpay.

Expensive watches do derive a lot of their price from things like water resistance, excellent case finishing, movement decorating etc -- which do not show you the time any better -- but they often do have higher quality crystals that are more clear with more effective anti-reflective coatings and higher quality lume or tritium. Both of which do literally effect how the watch shows the wearer time.

Just saying.

I've heard from some people that the 45xx is pretty finicky about frequent servicing and can eat itself if not kept super maintained, but I have never been able to substantiate those reports myself.

Myself, I'd go for a 45xx as it is the caliber that Daini used to crush the souls of the Swiss in the Chronometer trials and thus has particular historical significance.

The 45KS and 45GS also probably represent the peak of the 'Grammer of Design' styling era at Seiko.

To me, that might be a slight issue since i can't exactly go and visit Mr.Shane down in Toronto.

Which leaves me with the option of sending it off to either Spencer Klein or to god knows where to get it serviced. And i trust Spencer, him servicing a friends 6619 Sportsmatic (that has an incredible history behind it), and doing both a great job and also wonderful customer service in the process.

The big issue is that it's going to take between two to three months until he receives and services it.

My local watchmaker does a decent job when given a cheap Seiko or a Slavwatch, but when shown a 5206 cal he said he'd rather not risk it as he's unsure on both how to properly service it and where to get parts. (Despite them being rather easily found)

So i guess a 5740C is the way to go.

Most Orient sun and moon directly take a moonphase aperture and put a day/night indicator under it.

The one you linked actually doesn't use an exact moonphase aperture and is a little bit more 'honest' in that way. But really it should be just be completely flat on the "bottom."

Then go get a job, or if you cannot go outside without issues, look for state social-security therapy. If you even get to flip burgers, eventually you can buy a way nicer watch than what you'll get for less than 10 bucks, and lot's of extra quality of life, self-reliance and satisfaction.

Yes, you're right, specially at the toothpick part, and it seems that you know what you are doing, but telling some noob to JUST open it with whatever you can open it with it's bad advice, it will give some scratching to that watch and/or fuck up the water resistance.

Even getting some cheap tools from ebay is way better than noobs improvising their own tools at home with only lack of knowledge as tutor.

I'm going away for grad school soon, and I don't think it's a good idea to take my watches with me, or even to take an expensive watch.
So far I'm taking my X201 and clothes, plus a coffee maker and rice cooker.
All that's left is the watch,
I was thinking a turtle, but I would love it too much to abuse it, and would feel really fucking bad if I lost it/if it got stolen.
That brings me to the MDV106. Diver + quartz means its completely resistant to daily activities, and I won't have to take it off even when showering and whatnot. It's cheap, has a bezel for timing and looks it it would look great on a nice perlon.
My only problem is the shitty lume.
Is there another cheap and reliable diver like this, or do I have to put up with the shitty lume and get this one?
Also as you probably guessed, I'm broke (just applying to schools was 700 bucks) and would like to keep costs down because I'll be spending a fuck ton of money this year and won't be able to have anything close to a steady job once I move.

The final thing is that $320-370 is the price of an SSD and a redmi (things I'll definitely need), as much as I love watches I don't really NEED one, y'know.

My Brand new Citizen Promaster NY0040 just came in the mail and it feel a much more solid than the 10 year old one I sold a few days ago ( bezel, crown feeling).

You are confusing the Seiko 4r35, based on the 7s26, with the 4s15 which is a modern update of the Seiko 52xx series from the 70s.

It is 28,800 bph movement with a micro-adjuster for the regulation and is directly comparable in quality and inherent accuracy to an ETA 2892-A2.
