Watches should be below a certain price and rugged, they are to be used and they'll get scratches and get knocked up. No way I'd invest money in the equivalent of having a fetus on my arm I've always got to be aware of and tip toeing around.
It's a tool for me, I'm not a tool for it.

I'm looking for my first mechanical watch and really like the skx013, what do you think guys is the movement too old/inaccurate to invest today? Also would it fit me well since I'm a 16.5cm/6.5 inch circumference wristlet?

>> No.61709533

Their dress watches are pretty and decently finished, but the watch overall is well overpriced for the movement it contains. While iwc isnt as bad as folks like panerai, they're part of the trend of making oversized "dress" watches with essentially the same movement as a $600 Hamilton and charging 10-20x as much. As a result they won't get much love here.

That said, their ultra high complications (like their recent astronomical watch) are decent - would love to see them do more of that.

Amphibias are made of stainless since they're built as tools for divers, but you need to remember that chromed brass/alloy is a lot cheaper than machining steel, and a lot more people in the Soviet Union are going to be buying Povedas and Poljots with what little they make.

Real shit though, what about the Jewish purges and forced migrations that Stalin did during his time in power? All these Masonic watches are definitely post WWII.

Very elegant, clear, even striking lume. Truly the mark of a proper heir to field watches.
I have always admired the subtle symmetry of a overly thick watch, the tower of a case combined with a petite wrist raises this style to a whole new level, to a level i would be proud of.
The classic design with Patek in-house momevent makes this watch a keeper in the dress watch section, what a wonderfull piece.
What a unique time piece, a bit eccentric even! Would work great with a dress in a business meeting or a formal celebration. Pure class!
A timeless timepiece with a solid horological track record. A classy man cannot go wrong with this piece. The piece speaks of true class, would love to see it on a nato.
Now this is a collection i could spend a day admiring and reviewing, i am in awe. The collection is well balanced, classy, very refined.. mmm.. what a collection! I would consider adding in a few nato straps though. Wear them in good health my friend!
A soviet pobeda watch has always been on my horological bucket list, very elegant design, the case shape makes it stand out from the crowd. What a bold timepiece! Love the dial, love the case and i love the nato strap.
Casio is a company with a long history in high end horology, their quartz watches, especially their digital quartzes, are among the best in the world. I love the retroesque design of these digital casios, they take me back in time. With a few bucks you get yourself a solid, quality piece of horological history!

It is C12 that is converted to C14 in reactors. Article is here:
>However, they are now working to significantly improve efficiency by utilising carbon-14, a radioactive version of carbon, which is generated in graphite blocks used to moderate the reaction in nuclear power plants. Research by academics at Bristol has shown that the radioactive carbon-14 is concentrated at the surface of these blocks, making it possible to process it to remove the majority of the radioactive material. The extracted carbon-14 is then incorporated into a diamond to produce a nuclear-powered battery.

Rather than electric power you could use it to stimulate a luminescent material. Or you could have a luminescent fully lumed face and electric converter on the reverse side.

People wear Speedmasters and racing chronographs even though they've never gone 15 over the speed limit, why should you be barred from owning a diver if you've never gone deeper than 15 feet? Dive watches are also generally built pretty damn rugged so you could say it's a tool watch.
As for dress codes; don't wear it with a suit (you're not James Bond), and don't put it on a leather strap.

I'm no corporate guy.
Actually I'm working for the government in Germany and the hierarchy is pretty shallow.
Quite frankly neither do I care about my subordinates nor will superiors care about my style.

>pointless 24 hour subdial
>date window cutting directly into the subidal instead of placing it somewhere between 4 and 5 o'clock
Also generally not following the subdial functions of the original. I kinda think the Giuigaro reissues are just a quick cash-grab from Seiko even if they didn't market the Aliens aspect of them at all. Pic related, these have $5 movements inside.

>> No.61726088

I generally agree. I really wish it didn't have the date window and I'd prefer an hour counter over the 24 hour dial. Its still a great looking watch though and I'm happy to be gaining money on it.

You'd rather get overcharged by some Chinese asshole for a watch that falls apart and is the opposite of luxury value? How cucked are you by Dong Peng Feng Industries? Do you even know their profit margins?!

Probably a G-shock or some sort of digital watch if you really want the most rugged watch possible. If you're not really hammering the shit out of your watch then probably any decent diver would be a good choice, quartz tends to be more shock resistant so maybe some sort of Casio. But honestly I've always hiked with my SKX007 even though it's mechanical and doesn't have any ABC shit or any of that, it's held up perfectly fine.
