I also bought one of the Bagels. For $31, why the fuck not give it a shot. Even if it turns out to be unacceptably shitty, I can always just pass it off as a gift to an acquaintance. Alibaba does seem very sketchy compared to eBay, Amazon and the like, but I chalk that down to the fact that it's Chinese, and everything that's Chinese is sketchy.

But seriously, we can stop shitposting about this.

On a watch related note I'll probably be buying a g-shock to use when I'm riding the motorcycle, I hope it comes with a fairly long strap, I'd probably put it on over my jacket's sleeve if I can. 5600 series because most other gshocks look awful.

Well, mine's an SM with 17 inch wheels and more street oriented tires, so while I can do some offroad pretty well, jumping over curbs, going thru ditches, random walking paths and whatnot, it's not super off-road oriented. Some other DRZ with the standard dirt bike bike forks and wheels would do better offroad but then start to lack more on-road. I personally love the setup I have, but I'm not out there doing lots of trail riding or something, I'm more interested in twisty roads and just also using it as point A to point B transport that's more fun than a car.

I just don't want to use my gs while riding.

I have the Caravelle in the pic, well the same model, mine is a '71 and the pic is a '69.

Very similar looking condition, though mine has no crack and no water marks.

Here's my issue, after a few tests on a full wind wearing it around the watch jams, and jams often. But leaving it on a table for the same amount of time it runs smooth and accurate.

Anyone know what's wrong, costly to fix, etc...?

This is the closest that I could find to your case number, and it definitely has a slightly different crystal number than the one you found on ebay.

Could be some sort of debris floating around inside of the watch or a burr hanging off of something, or even some debris in a jewel. I'm willing to bet that a regular service would fix up the problem, probably not much more than $30 if its a manual wind, which I'm assuming it is.

Is there a watch /g/uide?

Looking for an analog, preferably minimalist, the simpler the better. No stopwatch/alarm/day of the month, it just needs to tell me the time.

Anything <$500 is fine, preferably around $200. But hey, if there's one out there that's $10 and is good, share it too. I'm not buying this for the prestige or brand.

There was a chrono posted here a while ago which has subdials with no markings. There's also some artist or something who makes very high end watches that are supposed to be kinetic sculptures. There's one which is just an escapement with no hands attached and there's another that has a dial and hands but they're underneath a completely opaque crystal so you can't actually see them.

dagazwatch.com and yobokies (he's got a photobucket, you contract him for prices and stuff)
I used a dagaz dial and hands for my mod, they're a little pricey but the quality is fairly good, especially for the price.
Since I presume you're only changing the dial and hands for your mod you'll just need a case back opener, a small flat head screwdriver, watchmaker tweezers, a hands puller and ideally a movement holder. They all be bought on eBay for next to nothing.

I have one watch and it's blasted with blue dial and blue bezel. If you want something different then you know what it looks like as well as I do, get what you want. Blasted is a more dull smooth finish which almost looks like titanium if you've seen that. It has more of a tough look in my opinion which is funny because it actually gets visibly damaged more easily and is pretty much impossible to fix up unlike brushed finish which can be touched up.

The dial is in no way original in design. Nothing was ever produced close to that. Those sellers specialize in redialed watches that will appeal to the unassuming foreigner because no one else would buy them otherwise. There might be a Soviet movement inside, but that's it.

maybe in inflation-adjusted prices from 50 years ago. it's just a mechanical watch done with non-shit materials and tuned individually by non-slave wage workers.

A tension ring is just a slightly different way of making sure that the crystal stays in place. Sometimes they just serve to add some outwards tension to the crystal and sometimes the case has a second little step that the tension ring fits in to. All in all, just another way of keeping the crystal put, and even if a watch comes with a tension ring in the crystal, there's usually a way of jurry-rigging in a regular crystal.

>>48405191
Well I don't know if I have any sort of very interesting insight as I'm still just a student, but I can tell you what I know. I decided to get in to watchmaking because I've always been very good at tinkering with any sort of mechanical thing and have always been fascinated by small mechanical items, watches being one of them. In terms of getting in to the business, I would definitely recommend going to a school first rather than just apprenticing with someone, unless that someone is really well established and known to do good work. Unfortunately there are just a lot of watchmakers out there right now who never really got a proper education and don't do a lot of things the proper way. Plus, a school is going to give you a lot of connections and references that you can use later, you'll get at least some sort of certifications through a school, which are required for some jobs, and a lot of pretty large companies come to schools to recruit. All in all, if you've got some mechanical aptitude, I think its a really awesome field to get in to.

No, it's actually probably a little more. I would estimate the cost of assembling a Milgauss is in the $1900 range once you factor in the cost of direct overhead and the like, although direct materials are probably around $1400. The thing is, Rolex sells to its local distributors at a markup of around 50%, so then your $1900 Milgauss becomes $2850 as soon as it's in the country. Then the local distributors will take another 50% and resell it to jewellers. Now the cost is up around $4275. Then the jewellers will sell it to you at a MINIMUM 50% markup, often even more, so now the cost of the watch is around $6,400. And that would be a good deal for a Milgauss. In the end, the watch in this example has been marked up over 330%.

This is not so surprising; actually for a luxury brand, this is almost downright reasonable. But what really gets me is when Rolex fans scratch their heads and wring their hands trying to figure out how Seiko can sell you a Grand Seiko for ~$6000 when the quality of construction is similar to a Rolex selling for twice as much. They almost always come to the conclusion that "Seiko must be selling them at a huge loss! To promote the brand! There is no way they can sell a watch with this kind of quality at such a low price!" Of course, the idea that maybe Seiko doesn't have every line of their distribution chain with their snouts in the trough never... really occurred to them.

So you got from Aliexpress? I've been thinking of messaging the seller, but then again I don't know how good their English is.

I'm not him but i placed an order recently for a fake 4$ Daniel Welligton and some shitty Clubmaster copies.
afaik you can message the seller instantly if he's only, just go to your orders and leave a message asking on the status.

I got mine from http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Top-Grade-Brand-BAGEL-Simple-Waterproof-Mechanical-Stainless-Steel-Automatic-Men-Business-Wrist-Watch-Time-Wathes/32338488058.html
I may take a few days for it to ship, don't worry.

Looks like we ordered from the same dude- cheapest Bagelsport around (confirmed by other anon to have the mineral crystal and DG28 movement). The one thing is that I'm having mine shipped to my workplace since I've previously had packages stolen out of my mailbox by local truants. Obviously the effect is that the shipping address is different from the mailing address. Normally this is not a problem for eBay or Amazon, so hopefully it won't be a problem for Alibaba.

You could order a Uzi to give to a 12 year old instead.

I already have mine, btw. Also, the seller seems to be accumulating feedback now.

Shameless request here. My bud was talking to me the other day about gifs/webms of the watch (internals?) Being taken out of the case and all the gears pivoting to expand into a line and then back together. Kinda like a protein I suppose. Anyone?

No doubt all from watchfa/g/s who ordered Bagelsport watches from him.

Somewhere in Shenzen, there's a dude thinking "why the fuck are all these gwailos so enamoured with this watch?"

Thanks for the try, but not quite. It sounded like a specific gear set which did this. Or I completely misunderstood.

I don't know but I think you'd be a lot happier with a Citizen Eco-drive than a Rotary. They're probably comparative, price-wise.

I saw you do this to a strap before and for the life of my I could not figure out how you managed to fuck it up so bad? How do you get a NATO strap on in such a way that the holes are on the lugs?

Disgusting, the only time you can wear anything gold coloured is when it's really gold
