This thread is about the appreciation of watches, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that are required to make a fine watch.

Is there anything in particular to pay attention to when buying vintage watches on eBay?

So what does everyone think about the quality of modern Seiko watch movements (I say this because I have no idea if the quality has changed)? All I can find on the internet is about how good Swis movements are but I feel that may be more of a prestige thing more than anything else, or am I missing something important here?

What movement are you talking about in particular? Personally the only one I own is 7s26 and that thing is generally considered as a tank.The accuracy is variable, but it's cheap and sturdy. No idea about any of the other Seiko movements

I'd say their movements are pretty damn good in general. The cheap ones are well designed and relatively sturdy, the midrange ones are similar but made to a higher standard, and then some for the high end.
No real crazy complications or originality, apart from the spring drive, which some people don't care about and others love.
They just realeased their first tourbillon...
The quartz movements in the Grand Seikos are really nice for what they are though.

But yeah. Nothing unexpected, but always well made. And Spring Drive.
The movements aren't the main attraction in Seiko watches for me, to be honest.

If you have to ask us, you shouldn't be buying vintage watches online.

The resources exist to teach yourself well enough about any vintage watch model to be able to judge for yourself which are worth bidding on and which to avoid.

I went from not knowing anything about vintage Seikos to having my local watchmaker start referring people TO ME for information on the subject.

How? Google. Reading. Participating in forums where the models I was interested in were being discussed.

The Omega that had the heritage died when Swatch bought them, ended Omega's internal movement design and manufacturing, and turned them into just another Swatch marketing brand casing ETA movements.

Also, in not knowing just how much heritage Seiko has as a watchmaker you're doing nothing but broadcasting your own horological ignorance.

Reminder that you don't really own the watch if the manufacturer restricts you from servicing it yourself.

Well basically what I found out is there really are few producers of NATO straps.

Because they've been continuously gaining popularity, there are more and more sellers yet no additional diversity of straps, and the fact they all sell the same 10 or so types of straps became all the more obvious. Despite some of the more reputed sellers having claimed for years to produce their straps themselves, you now find their own "original" straps up for sale much cheaper from other sellers.

But I have transcended nylon, and I am now reaching the final frontier: I'll be opening my own NATO strap store where I'll be actually open and honest about what I sell, because seriously, a perfect high-end NATO doesn't have to cost more than $10. I'm contacting the best manufacturers out there and I'll have them make the dankest straps ever.

Not exactly, they merged with the original supplier. And then it's not like the originals were great anyway, military equipment is always contracted to the lowest bidder. And then the spec isn't perfect, and it's not like a piece of nylon with steel buckles is a complicated thing to do, albeit chinks certainly do rip you off on countless points.

Something along the lines of Seiko SARB-series. (I'm kind of a noob at this).

Any as long as it's not too big. I work at a desk and wear suits every day so pref 32-38mm. In terms of style I'd say.. "Anything" except for military/digital-types. Classical/Divers are fine.

I need advice /wt/. I'm going to further mod my slavshit Amphibia, this time by giving it fully lumed numerals by reluming a stock dial.
I kinda like 3/6/9/12 dials so I'll be using one of those, but I need to find a perfect balance between the most lume surface area (i.e. large numerals and indeces) and the least autism (some Vostok dials as we know can be very neckbeard-tier). I prefer blue dials, but some designs like the 6-9-12 scubadude and the one in the upper-right only come in black. Mine in it's current state is in the lower left, for reference.

So give me your opinions.

People hate fashion watches because they often have busy and ugly dials, while being flashy and oversized as hell. Also for putting in cheap quartz movements and thus not being "haute horologie." In my opinion as long as the watch looks good and is not hugely overpriced there is nothing wrong with adding a cheap quartz. It will still hold time better than any mechanical and should last a decent time. And people being cunts on 4chan is just banter

Upper left would have the most lume surface area, but isn't it a bit outlandish/neckbeard-tier? Anyone own that dial?

Upper right might be the most balanced in appearance, but it only comes in black.

Strontium aluminate and europium are the most important ingredients but adding trace amounts of other dopants is what change both the frequency and intensity of the emitted light.

the reasons normies like rolex is because of marketing.
the reason people who like watches like rolex is because of the quality. they're not impressive on a spec sheet; they're just really, really well-made. you can wear them every day, unlike many other "luxury" watches.
the "timeless" designs are also part of it, I suppose. like it or not, a daytona, sub or day date are instantly recognizable as a nice watch, and it does count for something.
vintage rolex is another bag of chips altogether though. those guys are just mentally ill.

The subject of non-watch bracelets belongs to /fa/, even if you're intending to use a watch bracelet.

Hey guys, I came up with this new idea. You hook all your nato watch straps together and you make a belt. It looks cool and you'll definitely get compliments for your cool, multicoloured belt.
