Noted. Got a recommendation for a dress watch other than the Cocktail? And in your opinion, why not the Cocktail for a dress watch?

>cool enough
I'm here, aren't I?
So, no.
But I regularly wear my vintage Accutron, which is part green and has a very different look. I wouldn't imagine the Alpinist being any different.

Fuck, really? How much longer is it running and how much longer does the Alpinist have?

>How would it look with a button down or a tshirt?
Should be fine.

Given the shiny silver case and dial, it will only look out of place in grungy clothes.

>what's not to like about the Cocktail Time?
It is pretty big. people who buy it without larger wrists sometimes are disappointed.

>why not the Cocktail for a dress watch?
It's pretty ornate. Dress watches are not ornate, they are simple. This watch is made to shine and glimmer, you can catch eyes from across the room. That's not in line with dress watches.

Also, in regards to the "investment" talk. If you wanted to try the cocktail time as an investment (bad idea most likely) you'd probably want to pick up all the cocktail time models. I believe there is 3, SARB065, SARB066 and SARB068. Sarb068 there was only 300 made, and they were all designed along with Ishigaki Shinobu.

>> No.59255885

Also, if anyone is interested in the sarb068, they're going to be hard to get hold of.

You could ask if this guy still has his

If you don't have a flexible measuring tape, use a string wrapped around your wrist and then measure the string.

It's probably over 7 inches.

18cm I assume? That's a 7.2in wrist (wrist circumferences are typically measured in inches). That's pretty decently big, so shouldn't be any issue with a cocktail time, which is 40mmx13.1mm

Can a regular joe learn to service a watch? Do any of you do it yourself?

From what I gather, the cost of getting a Seiko or Orient shitter serviced would probably be greater than or equal to the cost of the watch. I also see that parts are hard to get for regular people. Is most servicing just cleaning and oiling or are parts usually needed? Do you just hope you can just buy a replacement movement for $50 on ebay in 5-10 years?

I almost got shilled into watches. Then I took a long step back. I realized all these things do is tell the time. The value is heavily inflated by an artificially manufactured following.

Even in that bleak scenario, mechanical watches still need to be serviced every few years. That doesn't make a distinction between the price of a 100k watch and a "cheap" Seiko, which does the job nearly as well (albeit still overpriced).

Jewelry has its own issues too but compared to watches, jewelry holds value better because of more actual precious materials in the construction. They also have more artistic value. They don't chase two hares with trying to be ornaments as well as instruments. It's just art. With watches, it's really "well engineered" (not really).

Depends. Are you Seiko designing a tri-synchro regulator to generate power from mechanical movement, use that to operate a quartz crystal for timing and then apply an electromagnetic braking force to the geartrain to create a smooth unwinding of the mainspring that tries to correctly show the passage of time, or are you just a company redesigning the looks of bridges for a unique look on an established movement design like 6497?

Are you in a department in Honda, utilizing the already developed honda asset to design a small car with minimal technology for emerging markets? Or are you on Honda's F1 team, pushing the very limits of what can be done within the rules and regulations of Formula 1 racing?

At the end of the day, some companies are taking part of their effort to try and achieve what was once believed to be unbelievable. If you can not appreciate the notion of engineering accomplishments, and simply want to say "well, the complexity derived from the sum of all parts is the only thing that matters" why would anyone talk about a fucking car when the international space station or datacenters exist?

Really fits her well, and while other women are often wearing large dogshit watches, her very small watch really fits her small wrist well. Looks nice on her.

Pic related- the best SARG model.

However I think pretty much every SARG is in consideration for my favorite Seiko.


The problem with GS is that they cost as much as a watch that would likely get you actual (You)'s in real life like a MOTFM, regular Speedy Professional, a Black Bay.

I know it's not a bout setting an image or showing off but it is kind of ridiculous to buy what looks like a super upgraded seiko 5, no matter how impressive the pieces are.


I have an SARG007 I never wore becuase I got it for a song with my SARG005. I don't know if I'll miss it if I sell it but I am holding it for now. The watch is now worth over $600 becuase they're not available. With modern Seiko's it's few and very very far between for money making opportunities.

Jesus, I never noticed that about the Suwa King Seikos. That's hideous.

The Daini KS chronometers have proper dauphine hands.

It was the first automatic chronograph in space which is pretty cool. As far as I know only the MOTFM & the Bulova Moonwatch went to the moon.

Accurist celestial, a rebrand of the citizen astrodea, which is also found in the campanola cosmosign.

Beautifully detailed dial with star chart with sidereal time and sunrise/sunset time.

about 75% of the watches posted in these threads are seikos.

don't seikos get a litttttttttttle old?

look, I get the cost:quality ratio. great value.

do you really want a dial that says 'seiko'? it looks cheap. even the GS. 'seiko' right on the dial, like a cheap $2 watch.

Yeah, I wish people had a bit more variety here. Even amongst shitters they could stand to mix it up a bit. I mean fuck people hate on Rolex for being so ubiquitous but if you go by this thread only a handful of people have them even amongst watch enthusiasts.

Because Daini Seikosha was so good that they single-handedly BTFO'd the entire Swiss watchmaking industry so bad that the Swiss went crying to the government to shut down all Swiss Chronometer Trials because they were so bootyblasted that Daini Seikosha took the top 6 places awarded to mechanical movements with a production caliber competing against the Swiss companies specially built ringers?

Actually the Swiss are still so terrified of Seiko that when they recently created new chronometer trials they specifically wrote the rules to exclude Seiko, knowing that they would once again get their shit pushed in otherwise.

By the way, I finally scored one of these and it's currently being serviced and the dial+movement are getting swapped into the 5206-6061 case I have.

Hey I have a 40 year old seiko watch.
Is it worth anything? Looks comfy though.

Its at home so I don't know the model, is this worth anything? (Atleast $20? )
Thanks (new on /wt/ btw)

post a picture of it front and caseback

it happened. Seiko btfo swiss watches in their own chronometer competition so hard they shut it down and banned Seiko from ever competing lest superior Asians finally kill the swiss meme once and for all.

fun fact: Grand Seikos are inherently more accurate then swiss chronometers and are tested to more positions/temperatures with stricter standard

that's a rare case.

look, modern seikos look like trash. the reason they look like trash? SEIKO plastered right on the front.

again. looks like a $2 watch. at least the credor line has a sexy name.

You wanna look cheap? Pop a Seiko logo on your GS.
