Watch Thread Already

ninja goof

soon becomes ninja life

:waynestare:


#307

What’s this? My first watch part? OwO

Some tinkering commences… Replacing the click spring, lubing the bezel o-ring with silicone grease, putting the whole contraption face down on a book and pressing, and shortly…

It turns! Job well done.

this Erika’s Original MN strap is just beautiful. $60 for a watch strap made out of 1970s Marine Nationale parachute webbing, woof

and

lack that magic bit that makes a watch evoke that wanna have feeling, i kinda feel meh about them…


#312

yeah the sports chrono market is dime a dozen for stuff like that imo, granted it’s not my style to begin with, but i’d rather have something more along the lines of


#313

Yeah, or why not go batshit insane and turn up with this GS:


#314

(yeah, 4 hands. Took me a while to realize what was off, too)


#315

It’s a GMT I assume? Plus chrono, small seconds, power reserve, date


#316

:thinking:


#317

it’s like the klok-01 but not ugly


#318

yeah, and it’s an automatic, not a quartz

don’t like the “60” at the 00 mark tho


#319

i quite like the 60 actually! it works w/ the font imo

not in love with the case finishing, altho that might just be the pic. also my bias against satinized finishing on non-tool watches, altho that’s not a hard and fast rule. a polished beveled edge would do a lot for it


#320

knifemaking has biased me toward satin finishes only finishes :waynestare:


#321

Yupp, exactly.
That’s what I call a watch face…


#322

I saw this at the store and felt like a magnetic pull to it but its sixty dollars oh no


#323

black LCD G-Shocks though


#324

I had one in the past but the screen was hard to read without engaging the backlight. The gray LCD ones might be uglier, but they’re way more practical!

Hehe
