> Am looking into getting a Spring Drive soon. But a thought I had is that while the movement and technology is great, I wonder about the long term life and serviceability of this style of movement. Specifically the electronic components
I think it's fair to say no one truly knows for sure at this point, but 8 can tell you anecdotally as a collector of electric movements of various kinds from the 60s-80s, in my experience, the electrical parts are the last to go -either they failed in the first two years, or they last forever. All the issues I've ever had with 10+ year old electric watches have been mechanical problems, which don't really present any kind of service problems beyond what you'd find in a traditional mechanical.

Not that anon from last thread but as someone who actually does work at GS - this isn't rocket science. Making some super simple assumptions, you should be saving about 20-25% of your pretax income, ideally. After your fixed expenses (rent/mortgage, food, insurance, whatever), you can spend the rest of your money on whatever. If you want to buy something that costs more than your monthly discretionary income, don't spend (some or all of) your discretionary income for one month, and then you can roll it over to the next month.

Buyee/Zenmarket anon:
Sorry to bother you with more questions, but searching is leading me to answers that don't quite answer my specific questions and I've only got about 18hrs left to decide whether or not I want to go for this shit.

What I was wondering was how buyee or zenmark for example handle seller feedback? I mean, do they leave it at all? Under your instruction? Can you choose whether it is good or bad? Or do they default to one, the other or just don't leave any?

What I'm looking at is kinda a costly thing, and would've required specialised knowledge in order to service and bring into the condition the seller is presenting it as (breddy good).
I'd kinda want to be able to leave good feedback for that effort (providing the goods are legit, of course) in the case I actually won the auction.

Secondly, and more pertinent as it would determine whether I go buyee or zenmarkt: with buyee and auctions you apparently just need to get your card/paypal authorised and you can bid. They debit from your shit if and when you win an auction.

With zenmarket, apparently you have to deposit some money into your account first? Huh? I don't really want to be depositing a grand or more into some digital nipponese wallet only to not win, and what? Move the money back again? Do you have to deposit a guestimate of how much you think you'll have to spend to win? Or is it just some token amount?

Zen does seem to have a price advantage, and with buyee adding on 10%, kinda makes a good deal less of one in the end (though by how much that remains to be seen).

I'm afraid I don't have a lot of good answers.

I don't see any way to leave feedback; I checked an auction I won a while ago.

You have to deposit funds to cover your bid. As you describe, if you don't win, or win for less than you deposited, you can simply have zenmarket return the money to you. 10% sounds pretty steep. The only risk is that your money, when it's at Zenmarket, is held in JPY, so you have exposure to currency rates.

I remember reading in one of these threads years ago (or maybe it was on some other board on this heinous site) about the advice some anon's wealthy eastern euro grandpa gave him about money and buying frivolities. The old man was self-made, worked-up-from-nothing kinda money, and he stipulated that you should never buy anything useless, or non-essential (like a luxury wristwatch) unless you could easily buy 10 of the same thing with it not making the slightest dent in your finances. Additionally, you must be capable of losing them all suddenly without giving a shit (financially). If you can satisfy these criteria, then go buy that trinket.

I think about this advice from time to time, whilst I ruminate over the state of my bank book.

(might've been 10, might've been 20. I can't remember. Might not even been eastern european - whatever)

I see.
Yeah all that moving around kinda makes me uneasy.
At least with buyee, apparently, it's just a "we'll take it when we need it" kinda deal.
Still, it's at 700 now. If it doesn't suddenly double in the next 18hrs it'll still be a decent deal, even with a 10% ++postage bullshit add on.

The feedback thing's not really such an issue, I mean, it'd be nice, of course. There's only a handful of people in the west capable doing what this seller has done, and of them only 3 are true masters. This japanese seems to have done a decent job (hopefully). Not "i'll just make this 70 year old thing function and look like brand spanking new with my supply of period accurate materials and decades of expertise" like those 3 other guys, but a good job all the same.
I would have liked to have acknowledged that for the benefit of any others interested in their wares.

pre quartz crisis a watchmaker was like a plumber, electrician or TV repair man. every town had one. with so much competition and "Lower watch prices" everyone tried to pump out jobs as quickly and cheaply as possible. leave a big scratch on the bridge? who cares you cant see it. we had this watch rattling around in our stock. date says 1970 i think.

kinda glad watchmaking is a rarer trade now. less competition and higher wages. the job pays for me to take my time and preserve the movement.

Literally no idea. i'd look up "GP" tech sheet or service manual and pray theres an old document to pdf floating somewhere. unless i have a bizarre ass movement i need special instructions on, i dont need them. why do you need this one?

It's an Accurist celestial, a rebrand of the movement in the citizen astrodea (also present in their campanola line). It is a standard quartz watch with an additional gear train that tracks sidereal time, so it displays the current positions of stars in the sky -the whole dial rotates under the hands once every 23 hours and 56 minutes. It is generally easily available and comes in a 35N latitude and a 50N latitude.

>> No.65053063

Perhaps a better way to describe this is it shows sun time (solar time, though not exactly, as it tracks mean solar time and does not compensate for the equation of time) and space time (sidereal time, which tracks the motion of the background stars).

I think Daniels has some solar/sidereal pieces as well that that anon with the 1963 might post in here.

Vager Hauers Shi Chen watch. Chinese microbrand with a Miyota 8217 movement. Left subdial is a slaved 24-hour dial showing an old chinese timekeeping system that divides the day into 12 two-hour periods.

Decent watch for the price - turns the slaved 24-hour subdial into something somewhat interesting, and dial and hands are quite respectable for the price. Case is merely okay. I bought it after seeing another wt regular post it.

Ok thanks. I suppose natos can be cheap enough so that I can always have several on standby while one is in a washing machine.

Do the thinner straps feel less secure than a thicker strap, especially if the watch is heavy? The only potential problem I see with NATO straps is that they are usually too long, and wearing them involves double tucking and stuff.
