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

those are retarded and they look cheap because seiko basically sells the same watch as a seiko 5 for 1/4 the price.
>>
>>64129504
I owned a Seiko 5 and decided to get a SARB next as I hated not being able to hand wind my watch. The difference in quality is clearly apparent and I ended up selling my 5. SARB is not a perfect watch by any means, but it is way better then Seiko 5's

What's the best budget Casio?

>>64129504
True, except for the dial, hands, case, and movement.
>>
>>64129583
>>64129734

Yeah but to an outside viewer it looks almost the same and is it really worth four times the price? I mean what do you get for that slightly better finishing and what is basically the same movement but with with some different materials and extra parts? I would be a lot more into Seiko as a company if they made something like in the OP's photo.
>>
>>64129791
So because of some dumb outside viewer's opinion I should not bother getting a nicer watch for myself? Nah fuck that.

> wish instead of $100 useful watches that are reliable and good, I wish seiko would make $25,000 hand made gold watches as their main product

yeah ok

and I wish Chevy pickup trucks were more like Lambroginis
>>
>>64130121
Yes

I would like it

>>64130121
Does he have a watch collection? Many automatics? Diver watches?

Most likely he would like it anyway. Its a solid watch for travelling, vacation, sea stuff, hard use etc.
>>
>>64130214
cool thanks
>>64130215
I guess he has what you would call a small watch collection, nothing worth more than about $100 dollars though and most of them worth less than that. I know he likes steel watches with the rotating ring on them and he swaps out watches so he does not like the ones you have to wind every day or they stop

Is AU$285 a good price for a SKX013 (1 month old) with documentation, rubber strap, and strapcode super oyster included? Thinking of treating myself for my birthday. Can be had new for AU$247 from skywatches with jubilee.

>>64130298
No, get a Club. The 'wire' lugs on the Metro look shit.
>>
>>64131324
Yes, now just fucking buy it already!

Wire lugs are underrated. Fuck you.

Neither that nor the Nomos have actual wire lugs though. Both ate fake wire lugs that use spring pins.

I have a g shock and a field style seiko 5. Do I get a diver or a dress watch now? Budget is $3-500.

I don't really like skx007's to be honest.

Got this 1975 Oysterdate today. Absolutely in love with it. I've posted pictures of my Air-King-Date, Tudor Oyster, and two-tone Oysterdate here in the past. Can repost old pictures if anyone wants.

Vintage dress watch.

Almost all divers under $3k have little weird irritating attributes that will make you regret buying them.

I'd love to get a SARB035 but as a working poorfag feeding a family of 4 by myself i cant afford it now so i sorta agree with the above statement cos this is my daily beater. But like what the guy said it's got to be a better watch product wise then my 5.

Talk me out of a sarb033. It has all of the features I would like. I do like pencil or syringe hands better.

$300-500 budget
Decent bracelet
Lume
Decent movement
Not fuck huge dial size
