I have a jap-only Seiko that has the day and date. It looks like a datejust kinda.

I have a Orient dive watch that's the USA special. I got it in blue, and dig it.

I *want* a datejust, but can't decide if I should get 36mm for my girlish wrists and lower price, or the datejust II for modern look. I can't afford the datejust 41 and I don't like two tone on me anyway.

The subject brings up concerns about whether a datejust is too dresssy for the clothes I wear on the daily, which are something around chinos and polo shirts.

I just like that fucking watch, tho

Guessing from your reactions I'm right then. Working class people don't wear watches at all, let alone obscure brand divers watches, too busy spunking their money on baby clothes for their multiple offspring. For anyone who would actually spend more than £100 on a watch (aside from footballers or whatever) something that chunky would completely stick out as lacking any sort of subtlety and look like an impulsive teenager trying to stand out too hard.

It's the best case if you are bitchwristed like me. Pic related is my franken Amphibirskie "50 slavthoms" Ukrainian special with the 420 case.

That scuba dude dial is nice and much better than the black version, I also got one myself but with the ministry case. Nevertheless it's pretty boring looking if you compare it to the older version which had some kind of sunburst effect. I've even been thinking about getting an old blue dial for my Amphibia.

You could get a Daniel Wellington off of Amazon, but you probably don't want to because /wt/ would tell you to kill yourself. I found this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B0044D0SVK/ref=mp_s_a_1_38?ie=UTF8&qid=1489517376&sr=1-38&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&dpPl=1&dpID=41nFywMJlYL&ref=plSrch# which is probably just as bad...

Honestly just get an SNK803 for 50 bucks and save until you can buy something from the £250-300 range. That's where you start to find dressy automatics and such

I'm not sure I understand what you mean?

Dani Seikosha made the LM Special line from ~1971-1975 and the movement they used in this line (the Seiko 52xx) is one of the best production automatic movements of the 1970s, comparable to the ETA 2892-A2, Omega 56x/75x and Rolex 3035. The movement was so good that it was also used in King Seikos and resurrected by Seiko in the 1990s as the 4s15, which is now only used in Credors.

They can often be had for less than $100 USD off Yahoo! Japan Auctions, though they will require a full service on the movement. I paid a fair bit more for the blue dialed one, but that's because it's the single rarest dial variant of any LM Special.

Swatch quartz watches are widely panned as overpriced, cheap quartz watches, though as weird fashion pieces they certainly have a more varied, and in some cases, better design.

Are compass bezels actually useful or useless in your experience?

Hi beater watch. What strap are you wearing?

>> No.59413089

if you need a compass use a compass
if you don't have a compass, having the bezel really won't be helping that much, it's still a pain in the ass

Some random strap that came with a Timex. The strap is higher quality than the Timex itself.

Is that yours? Does the quick-set for the day and date work on it? If so, I would recommend selling it before the quick-set breaks.

The Suwa Seikosha produced 56xx caliber has a plastic gear in the quick-set mechanism that tends to shrink and crack due to age. As a result, the quick-set on every 56xx caliber is likely to eventually fail.
