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

Both use the same movement, but the casing is different. It's identical in terms of actual use. The 37mm is the recreation of the pilot's chrono, and the larger 41/42mm case was done because right now people like 'big' watches.

There is no practical difference. The 37mm can be found in acrylic or sapphire, and the larger ones are mineral glass. You can get both with transparent backs or solid, and there are a bunch of variants within.

Here's the original they based it off of.

>>65030928
The original watch had a movement with only 19 jewels; the movement was made using the tooling for the Venus 175 which Venus sold to China in the 50's or whenever they bought it. Seagull uses this movement, which is the ST19, for their recreation of the pilots watch. Someone on WUS broke down the movement to find that it indeed has 21 jewels, not 19, but for some of the recreations they've kept 19 zuan on the dial for closeness to the original.

There are lots of variations. Mine has 21 zuan on the top, and the two lines of text on the bottom. But it also has an unsigned crown, and I bought the exhibition back for it as well. Column-wheel chronograph for 300 bucks...easily the cheapest one on the market. Though I'm sure people here are tired of me talking about it.

I picked up the Suwa 7546 Type II a fellow watchmaker needed as a donor. He needed a new rotor and nobody in the country had a 754x movement, so I got a cheap one from Buyee. I think I'm keeping the Maruman bracelet though.

I got a huge advantage over the older watchmakers being Internet-savvy, I can get parts from barely known darknet sites such as Ebay, Cousins.uk or Yahoo.jp.

When they're done discussing horology Tristano likes to felch his cum out of Federico's asshole, but the final time Federico just ran off carrying the love of TGV in his lower intestine. This upset The Urban Guinea and made him feel insulted, mostly because the royal seed of a nobility of his caliber is too precious to remain in the bum of some lowly serf. On the other hand Fagerico is hurt from this treatment, he wants to carry The Urban Raul Julia Imitator's fecal child in his grossly inflated body.

Now TGV keeps harassing Pederico with wax-sealed pigeon mail demanding his royal seed back, while Fattyrico cries into his Governor dakimakura.

Yeah, unfortunately that 'aesthetic' comes with the territory. It's possible that the original does not have true heat bluing, as that might have been cost prohibitive for the Ch. Gov. in the early years. The whole point of the chrono was to provide the pilots with something that was reliable and competitive with the Swiss but 'made' by the Chinese. Their solution is in some ways a little less offensive than it is today; instead of just taking something, breaking it down, and copying it part by part, they at least had the good graces to buy the tooling that Venus was going to get rid of, so in many ways the ST19 movement is a Venus 175 movement...just 'updated' with things that the Chinese want.

Regarding the look, sadly the hour markers don't photograph well either...they tend to look like cheap plastic in pics (which they probably are). In person however the watch really looks surprisingly good, and it always gets compliments from people who don't know better or have never seen anything like it (which is the usual reason). The legibility of the dial and hands is superb in all situations except dead darkness; the dial is reflective, so in low light the look is of a watch with a 'white' face and 'black' hour markers and hands. This is the advantage, as an example, over the black dialed versions that have come out from HKED.

ARCHIE is same thing as the watch snob. He created a character for entertainment. There was one video I saw where he described creating the archy luxury persona. I think it's funny how people on WUS think these guys are real and get all bent out of shape about what they say. It's entertainment folks, and not that clever either. It's easier to get recognized when you say crazy $i!it than be a legit reviewer.

At least the watch snob actually knows a little bit about watches Archy just rants and tries to be obnoxious and say funny things.

My problem with Paul is that he only really thinks in terms of resale value. The main thing of interest to him is market value prestige. Not the actual watch itself or it's technical/individual merits. Hence the complete lack of any deep knowledge and constant circlejerk of the same watches over and over.

URBAN GENTRY, ARCHIE and Federico.. They all suck.
20 mins to say something that can be said in 2, and usually not that enlightening.
Federico sucks
Archie sucks
Urban Gentry sucks least

It's all social media advertising, which I don't mind too much if it was done well, but in these cases it's not.

- Archie is impossible to watch and his cursing gets old. He is better equipped to review escort sites than watches
- Federico has an annoying voice and drags on way too long without ever saying anything of substance. And yes, he looks like he is better suited to review food or restaurants
- Urban Gentry is the best of the bunch, but his slick hair is irritating and he too takes too long to get to the point. And all the top X lists get annoying, especially with no real criteria to them

With respect to Federico leaving WuW, it's usually not a good sign when people abruptly leave their job and everyone is all tight-lipped about said person's sudden departure. Couple this surprising development with the dead WuW channel for the past couple of weeks, and I have to ask if things aren't going too well for WuW? Perception matters for any business, so I hope they officially address what the hell is going on at WuW so no current or future customers lose confidence in them. I particularly feel back for Fed since he moved to Florida from NYC for WuW. I wonder what's on the horizon for him? I personally think that he's a cool guy, and I'd love to know about what he'll be doing next, whether it's returning to his own channel or something else entirely.

Holy shit, finished and I didn't totally fuck it up, my hands are way more shaky than when I last modded it a couple of years ago. Plus I need to go back and change the crystal, or at least properly clean the inside of the current one, worse than a poo in loo special. I need to pay attention to it though as I'm not totally sure I got the hands on perfectly. But that's it for today, I need a drink, stressful as fuck.

Actually, I'm not even looking at a watch, but an entirely different form of autism. It's got a day or so left at nearing $700. I'm only keen because the cheapest I can get this elsewhere is closer to $2k at the moment (they're kinda rare, and there's ebbs and flows as with any such market).

I didn't mean to give the impression of ambiguity. Some of my buys have been excellent, some have been merely acceptable, and some have been that I took a gamble on a watch that the seller listed as-is and it didn't start working when I put in a battery, leaving me out $25. As long as you do your research and have at least some sense of red flags for disreputable sellers, I wouldn't expect any issues.

Watch autists have this boner for precisely fitted, ultra-tight tolerance bracelets, usually with long, Oyster-style links, with no sideways play or twisting whatsoever.

Rolex makes a million watches a year that look better than any grand seiko, have more accurate movements, have more durable movements, have better bracelets, better bracelet fitment, maintain their value better, and can be serviced in any major city on earth. Rolex has a more storied and important history in terms of design, development, and notable wearers. Objectively Rolex makes better watches and that is why they are the larger brand. Not because "normies don't like seiko". You setting some arbitrary criteria for what makes something "better finished" and saying that the seiko meets that criteria doesn't mean shit. I am sure you can go online and cherry pick some fucked up rolex and show a zoomed picture of a grand seiko but it will not amount to anything.

Nice, they finally shifted the retarded date from the 3 position.
