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!

>i have not heard of tisell
Of course, since it's a korean microbrand assembling chinese parts into 'homages' of popular designs.
The Orient Flight should be decent like most Orient watches. The coating on the black models probably isn't that great though, and may flake off after a while, depending on use. Making a good black steel case is actually quite expensive...

So I got my Mako XL yesterday and its a really nice looking watch. It looks better in person than pictures online.

I like the watch a lot, but I feel it just sits a bit too high on my aushwitz wrists. The length and the width are okay on my 16.2 cm wrist, but its so fucking THICC.

anyways, not sure if I'll keep it 2bh.

I'm thinking on picking up that cheap casio diver they have for 40 bucks or drop a little more for a vostok amphibian/komandirskie. any experience with either of these divers /g/?

this would be for daily wear btw

It's the mother of all franken watches, so obvious the seller had to disclose it openly. Also, the rotor is faaaaar from original. Even if (IF) some parts of the movement and/or case are original (like the balance, apparently), PP won't sell you a screw to restore it as it should have been, and neither any AD or watchmakers.
IMHO that watch is nothing but money down the toilet. For that price I would prefer to buy a Speedy reduced.

You should fly to Japan so you can look for a vintage King Seiko 52xx in person. The accuracy these things are capable of is just silly.

Hi the watch is a great little timepiece, it's very accurate and the power reserve is 6 months when fully charged.

They are scratches that were caused by me putting it in a drawer unprotected and forgetting about it first about 5 years. As soon as it hit the light it started working though.

I took a look at these, they have a few models I like. Are these generally solid brands or do the specific series (not sure how to call it, a line? e.g. the Weekender) differ in quality?

You mentioned getting a new strap, I noticed they all have some weird fabric or rubber straps. I take that's why I should get either a metal or leather strap?

I really like this one. It's a shame it doesn't have a date indicator.

The MDV106 is pretty damn big. If you care at all about mechanical movement, an Amphibia is a good step up from that. They also have that weird russian styling while the MDV is more of a classic diver.
Also, the engineering behind the Amphibia is pretty neat. It's the reason I got mine. The flat gasket, clutch in the crown, and increased WR with pressure on the crystal are ingenious ways of dealing simply with the problems of a diving watch.

Go with white. Put a perlon on it, or just leave the stock strap. After it breaks in it should be pretty nice.

Tried the tangente 35mm and the metro 38mm.

The lugs on Nomos watches are no joke. They reach the very edges of my wrist and I usually wear 42mm watches.

The metro has better lugs, but those extra 3mm make it seem so much bigger because of the design. It's alot of white on your wrist.

Going to have to try them on again before making a decision.

The Casio is full stainless steel and is heavy and sturdy as fuck.
Put it in the tub and it stayed airtight just fine.
The crown is a little small, but it screws and catches the threads very nicely.
The lume is better than the ampbibias, but thats not saying much. At full charge it'll stay bright for around 30 minutes, so I guess thats fine for diving.
I honestly think this is the best watch under $100, and certainly the best quartz diver.

The resin strap that it comes with is decent, not very flexible but still comfy and water proof. It has standard 22mm lugs though, and it's indented to help fit a one piece strap better. Also standard springbars, so replacing the bracelet isn't an issue like it is on Seiko divers.

Oh and the movement is dead silent. The only way to hear it is to press your ears against the case back and you'll hear a very faint ticking.
You can't hear it even when it's the middle of the night and all is quiet.
Meanwhile you can hear my chink wellington in a box across the room, I usually keep the crown pulled out.

Dumb question time.

How do I set a Seiko 5 back an hour?

Back pressure on the crown stops the second hand, turning backwards moves the second hand backwards with some resistance.

Feels so wrong, but the instructions have no warnings against turning backwards.

Then again the instructions only say how to set it from scratch, set the date the day before, then turn forwards to midnight, then set [by going forwards].

Do you really have to go through all 30 days and 6 days of the week just to set it back 1 hour?

Noob here, what is the difference between good quartz movement and a cheap quartz movement?

>> No.57314185

>>57314141
Accuracy, longevity, the likeliness to encounter problems, decoration and craftsmanship. Depends what price bracket.

There are good cheap quartz movements and shit cheap quartz movement.

Shit will be any chink 6,75x8 ligne movement that's in a $10 Ebay-special. Plastic everything, can't be taken apart, can't be serviced, once something happens with it it's fucked forever.

A good cheap quartz movement would be a Miyota 2035, no jewels, also 6,75x8 ligne in size, but it's good quality, sane design, and most importantly serviceable. It's around $5.

skx007 or skx013. True to the spirit of a half century of seiko divers and overall just nice looking with good quality.

Mako/Ray II are both rated for -15/+25, which is better than the +/-25 a day that the 7s26 is rated for. So there's something already I guess.

Personally, I prefer the look of the Mako to the skx series, comparing these 3 watches, they really aren't all that different in quality, they're all at a price point where you're not meant to expect perfect finishing or a plethora of features and design considerations. So ultimately, it's just down to what you prefer the look of.
They're all rated for 200m. Granted the skx007/09 are both ISO6425 rated. For what it's worth, which is. Fuck all unless you're actually diving, or are severely autistic.

70 max desu. I feel if I go over I might just find an orient diver for less than a hundred or might as well splash on a new mako II, but for daily use a 180 dollar watch is just too much.

I paid 40 + tax for the casio, I doubt that can be beat.

It'll look smaller on a nato. This really is the best cheapo diver though.

how big are your wrists? I feel it my lack of forarms makes this watch look even bigger on my wrists.

I like the watch a lot. I'm waiting on a stainless steel band I ordered for it. Looks good with a mesh one. Was thinking on buying one of those myself. How did you remove the original bands btw?

Thats not a stump I promise....
>>57318548
Somewhere around 17cm. I dont really remember sorry.
The resin strap has little indents on the inside where you can fit a small flathead or spring bar tool. Depress the little ridge in the bar inward and the strap should pop off.
It's a 22mm lug width, and the mesh I have is just a cheapo from ali.

Yea it really is. Vostoks are a bit more expensive. The casio can't be beat for 40 so far. Only thing that sucks is the shit lume.

>>57318584
ah, fellow /csg/'er? lel I just ordered a 9 dollar one from amazon since it would get here faster than ordering from ali. If I decide to keep the watch, I'll order extras from there.

How is the band btw? Is it holding okay? How long have you had it for?

>> No.57318697

>>57318639
Just 3 days actually.
The band is the same as all other casios. So comfy and pretty durable. If you're talking about the mesh I've had it for a year on various watches. Really nice.
If you're gonna buy a mesh of ali just make sure it's 316L and you should be good.
The lume isn't really that shit if you're just charging it for a dive.
