/wt/ watch thread:

Watches and horology represent a long tradition of some of the finest made objects in human history.

This thread is about the appreciation of watches, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that is required to make a fine watch.

Any good auto chrono under 1.5k with seconds subdial and between 38-40mm?

>> No.50671994

Fortis makes one- 38mm 630.10.12 M "Official Cosmonauts" , you can get it on the grey market for around $1500. There's also the Momentum Men's 1M-CD90S2 for around the same price.

If you bump up your case size to 42mm, you get a bunch more options. As long as the lug-to-lug length isn't excessive, you'll be alright.

My eBay purchase arrived today, a Seiko 7A28-7040. The 7A28 is legitimately of horological significance as it was the first analogue quartz chronograph ever made. This one isn't in too bad condition, though the hour indices are fairly grimy, so cleaning them should be fun. The movement is fairly interesting as it's decorated with 15 jewels and made to be repaired rather than replaced. The chrono is neat, once started the pusher at 10 can be pushed for a split time, the hands will stop but the chronograph is still running and when the pusher is pushed again the hands will catch up to the correct timing. The bracelet is nice too, it's folded crap but I love how it looks.

So this arrived today. A product of the Bagelmeme a few months back; I actually forgot that I ordered it. Seems to be keeping time OK, ie better than +60 minutes per day. The seconds hand makes the standard "Miyota jumping" look like child's play.

The quality is pretty terrible, so I'm not sure if I want to keep the watch. Debating whether I should sell it or keep it around as a gift.

Resposting the strap that I made. 22mm and tapers down to 20mm, natural veg-tan coated in neatsfoot oil.

To the anon who asked if I would sell: Yeah, I'd probably sell this style because I made it and I feel comfortable with making it again. I don't think I'd do padded, or multiple layers just yet because I don't know how to get a really good, finished product.

No, what he's saying is that a $2k watch is capable of being exceptionally well made - Grand Seiko only made chronometer grade watches for a short while - because they found the chronometer grading to be lacking.

>> No.50686025

Trying to keep this short:

1) Typical quartz movements are so cheap to produce that they seriously incentivize cheapening the rest of the watch to match, very quickly leading to massively overpriced dogshit.

2) While eco-drives aren't inherently utter trash, Citizen very clearly does not put any effort into the designs for their eco-drives models and they often have aspects that are off-putting to people familiar with the design language of quality watches.

3) We had an eco-drive shilling troll on these threads for a while who succeeded in turning the consensus opinion to utterly despising them.
