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.

I guess we're posting collections.

For 2017 I'm looking to swap out the awful leather band that came with the orient for something nicer, probably sailcloth. I also want to pick up a bit of a nicer watch to wear with a metal strap. I am pretty keen on accutrons and I'll probably look to pick up something from the accutron 2 collection by the end of the year.


Vostok without strap is amphibia with komandirskie watch face.

Accurist celestial, a rebrand of the citizen astrodea, which movement is also found in the campanola cosmosign. Quartz movement with sidereal time that rotates the background stellar disk once every 23 hours 56 minutes 4 seconds (or so, I forget how accurate it is. I think it's within 5 s/d of correct sidereal time) was a huge pain to track down, a huge pain to set correctly, and a huge pain to read, but very cool movement and attractive, detailed dial.

Are you the person from the previous thread?

Honestly if you find a sistem 51 design you like and have to have a Swiss mechanical watch, go for it, but understand it is a disposable toy (which to be honest isn't that different from a seiko 5, though the seiko will probably have a longer life, given that the swatch doesn't even have a jeweled fork, last I checked) and think hard about what you really want out of a watch - if you double your budget you can easily pick up a used Hamilton which would be much much better.

Happy New Year, dear anons!!!!

A few weeks ago, one of you m8s was kind enough to give me a link for a very rare Seiko that I have interest in, and in return asked me if I could show a pic of my collection.

As some of you know, my watch collection sleeps in a bank's vault so it's nowhere easy to take pics of it, starting by the fact that photographs are not allowed in that place.

However, a couple of months ago I moved from my old apartment to a place closer to my new offices and had also to move the collection to another bank's vault too, as the former one was now to far to go on a dayly basis.

So, long story short, during a weekend I had a bit more that two-thirds of my collection at home and I managed to take a nice pic of them. (Still missing, several high end and vintage, but anyway.)

Enjoy it.

For anyone who doesn't yet know, the Ulysse Nardin anchor escapement, and Girard-Perregaux constant force escapement both attempt to use thin strips of silicon that snap back and forth to try and smooth out and better utilize the varying power provided by a watch mainspring.

I don't rationalize spending +50k on a watch very much, or else I'd probably feel guilty as fuck and snuff myself away.

Last month I visited Africa and although I gave a 10k donation and also gifted almost all my clothes by the end of the journey, I uderstand there is so much need in this world and that it is not normal for a single person to have or spend that much money in something like a watch.

You gotta make a list of all your vintage pieces at some point, you have a lot of neat ones.

The GP 36,000 is a great movement, as are the Omega 56x/75xs, and the Citizen Bullheads you have.

I'm going to have to see if I can get my hands on an Omega 56x/75x this year.

I got so lucky with my King Seiko Special that I'm pretty much done with vintage Seikos short of finding a good deal on a 45xx KS or a blue sunburst 5146.

When you chance upon a vintage watch that can go 14+ days running +0.0s/d, you don't part with it.

I do have a 1971 Seiko LM Special 5206 that runs ~+2s/d with a charcoal sunburst dial that I don't wear that much because it's a bit small for my tastes at 35mm, however.

The left one is the normal dial and the right is the rare racing one.

It took me a bit to find a pic of the correct dial. As you can see, the minutes subdial has blue and white stripes and the inner ring has marked seconds, no tachymeter.
The main problem is that most of these dials are aftermaket (fake) so it's quite difficult to find an original one. For example, in pic related the chronograph's seconds hand is yellow, but it should be white or metal with an orange tip also, the day and date rings should be black and the date is japanese-english; this is clearly an aftermarket dial.
Btw, Citizen never realesed that dial with an octagonal case. If you find one, that's -again- an aftermarket (fake) dial.

That was me.

There are a few snags though, like this one does not account for years with 53 weeks. There are actually some rather weird rules about when week 1 starts. It is NOT necessarily the week having the 1st of January. Instead it is the week with the first Thursday of the new year.

Btw cool to see another knife guy- just picked up my first classic slipjoint, a case peanut. Love it after a quick reprofile and waterstone sharpening. Was more of a Becker guy up till now

Let's avoid turning into those cucks in the battlestation thread, who feel the need to include either/and or guns or dildos in every picture. Which then no doubt gets reposted every thread for 6 months until some fucker moves a tissue box.
