#147

regatta timer is the best gauche complication

#148

Only watch I own is this $10 one from bottom tier aussie jewelry store Lovisa. It’s a mirror! Then you press the button and it’s a watch for a few seconds! It’s also available with a black band

today i read this for the second time and finally understood the bit at the end about the ‘magic lever’ winding system. cool thing that winds the watch no matter which way the rotor spins


#151

aw sick! how much do movements differ anyway? like, within their ‘categories’ or w/e


#152

they vary a lot – the main ‘off the shelf’ ones are ETA, Sellita, Miyota, which you will see in a lot of brands
it’s the sign of a big manufacture to have their movements developed in-house. usually signifies a more expensive watch or a big-name brand

i’m not really a movement geek yet but i like reading about their features. like how the seiko 7s26 (above) uses a bunch of plastic parts and various utilitarian engineering solutions to keep costs low and improve durability

spring drive is the coolest imo. mechanical movement but the gears are regulated by an electromagnetic brake wired to a quartz crystal. perfectly smooth and accurate second hand


#153

oh yeah there’s a big nerd wiki for this i’ve been meaning to check out

#154

oo

what t heck this is a calendar. the little arrow shows the month. there’s a leap year indicator on the back


#155

o fuck this arabic dial cartier tank cintree

goddamn… it speaks 2 me…

it hurts me that this is not only the typical price of a luxury watch, but also an insanely rare version of a rare model to begin with… i’m guessing this watch is worth more than my lifetime high net worth


#157

this owns so hard


#158

wut


#159

more like perpetual spelunker!!!


#160

I dig this but it’s maybe the size of the moon?!

could be that’s just a baby’s wrist idk


#161

shrug you are such a meaty man, clearly that gardensnake wrist can’t hold a literal candle next to your tree trunk of a forearm


#162

OK I looked it up and it’s about the same size as my seiko solar so uh yeah I guess it is a baby’s wrist after all


#163

ya if the arrow points to 1 o’clock it’s january, etc. crazy

that aevig is cool, looks like a marathon but cheaper and more nordic

tritium tho :eyes:


#164
