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.

I'm trying to find a good dress / formal watch for desk jobs / events that is discrete and good looking. Sub 1k. I'm really autistic about accuracy, I usually wear multiband 6 gshock shitters.

In my 20s and a pathetic wristlet. I dont need old fart formality but something that doesnt look like total shit or makes me look like a bum. Even my 300$ gshock looks like ass.

Poorfaggot scum are always low class because of their poor mentality, not their lack of money. If they weren't mentally poor they'd realize they can go way further than they could ever think of if they actively search for a way around things. They also always get mad because they can't understand this. They're true plebeians.

You can always identify them because they only spout things about the five most shilled watches on the mainstream, they always exaggerate without corroboration and they never think of valuing things for anything else than retail price, which by the way they never question.

I was actually looking for a "medium-priced" daily beater.
I was initially going to buy a Tudor Pelagos, which is about 4k.

But after a lot of sperging I am now at the point where I am firmly convinced that the Seiko Tuna (price: 1k) has more horological merit than the Pelagos, or so many other watches in that category and ca. 5k price range.

The smallest real tunas are the 300m quartz ones; SBBN031, 033, and 035 iirc.

Like I said, I got into wristwatches because of the intricate workings of a mechanical movement, but this Tuna quartz movement has my brain by the balls for some reason.
I mean look at it, it fills the entire case and has 7 jewels and is all metal.
The movement is called 7c46, look it up. It's great.

The reason I'm not considering the spring drive or automatic tunas, is because those are bigger than the quartz ones by several mm in all directions.
>>
>>65565536
This entire thread is just shitty bait and samefagging.
>>
>>65565514
Nothing generic about Tunas, boyo.
If anything, the Tudor BB and Pelagos are generic copies of the Submariner aesthetic.

But anyway, congrats on being #BornToDare.

>Seiko's history is an independent brand that was involved in in house movement development, engineering, and chronometer trials that triggered the swiss so much they cancelled them.

Hmm really makes me think.

In Tudor's defense I am glad to see them coming into their own as a brand and developing inhouse movements and a name for themselves.

Say I wanted a similar example, should I just be keeping my eyes peeled for "vintage Vostok dress watch" or the like? Are those models as redialed and frankened as many vintage Vostoks I've seen commonly for sale?

Keep in mind usually half links are actually a bit bigger then half. So in your case just switch out a full for a half at your first step

personal preference
butterflies are satisfying because the clasp can sit directly in the middle of the whole watch shebang
in my experience singles are way easier to get on though so i like singles
>>
>>65567579
I'm leaning towards single because I know I like that type from the bracelets I have used. What are some good deployment clasps? Locally it looks like only ali express ones are available for 4 times the price. If I'm going to wait for one from them I may as well get a decent one.

>>
>>65567621
all of mine came preinstalled on their respective bands so I dont know much about buying the clasps by themselves. I assume that most of the no name shit for around the same price on ali express would be of similar quality.
one thing to note is that butterflies close up in 2 places obviously (one clasp on each side) and if the clasp isnt great quality you pretty much double your possible failure points. one of my bracelets has a dodgy butterfly on it and occasionally one side would pop off or not connect properly, which never happened on any of my singles.
>>
>>65567223
Is that as thick as it looks? That's a transitional electric movement to compete with digital quartz, right?

>>65567563
Fair enough. I think it looks great on the leather, I'm not a huge fan of bracelets anyway.
The style you chose is the most obvious and fitting one. I wonder if it would work on different straps (croc, suede, colored leather, perlon...)

>>65569257
I'm not the same guy you were talking to, and Bob's Watches is wrong. Dress watches do NOT have bracelets, nor do they have chunky cases with screw-down crowns.

Pic related is a dress watch, not a DD. It features a relative slim, polished case made in precious metals, a thin movement with handwinding a plus, usually a white dial with printed roman numerals, printed batons, or applied baton indices, dauphine or stick hands, ideally no complications but at most a date complication, and a leather strap.

A DD is a semi-formal sports watch made in precious metals instead of steel.

There is no single solid definition, so stop talking put your arse. Any watch that looks suitable in a dress situation is about as detailed as you can get before there are hundreds of people disagreeing with the definition.
