Love the Visodate, it's on the shortlist. Currently wearing a Tissot myself, a PRS 200 that my grandfather wore as a beater that I inherited. Oddly enough I think the lume on the hour and minute hands are upside down. The ones on the dial markers are fine,but I always see the green part of the hour and minute shine under them, but not on them.

Thats fun xD. However id go check it at your local workshop and get the hands right man.

Pic related is the Orient my dad used as a beater for 40 years. My grandad bought it for him as a present for his 18th birthday. I just copped a new strap for it last week.

Thats a good looking watch, Orient is another brand on my shortlist. Im between a few models but wont get a Mako since i just copped a SKX 007 and probably wont do another diver for a while.

And yeah Im currently back at school but once finals are done and Im back home for break I'm gonna take it to the local watchmaker and see whats up with it. Honestly it's not a big deal to me since I dont sleep in a watch and the lume is kinda trash to begin with (I mean it's a decently old watch) but still, worth a look.

Some people might feel more secure having things this expensive at a professionally secured building rather than a safe in the closet at home.

Not so easy. In any casy, owning things to keep them in a bank safe is pretty sad.

Also, he could have taken the pic at a Patek dealer... you never know.

@BlogWobbles
Security at home goes further than your regulsr Gruber safe in the closet, specially for the kind of wealth you are talking about.

But in any case, its true that it is not easy to keep high security levels at home and daily life in general all the time.

pretty pathetic if he actually arranged a meeting with a private seller just to get a photo to show on an anonymous Korean strip searching forum.

given that he already owned something else expensive based on the other posts, it's less of a stretch that he actually could afford a 5970 patek.

RGM is basically the only real one today and they're very expensive and limited production and most of them are very nice watches and all but they're ass ugly. If you want to look at vintage stuff then there's lots of American brands, and even more so for pocket watches if you're into that. Timex, Bulova, Waltham, Elgin, and Hamilton were all once major American manufacturers and each one was important and interesting in its own way, but all those have been sold off and outsourced or are completely dead.

I like the "vintage" petit-bourgeoisie look of watches like this one I found in a recommendations list, but I'd like one in the $40-50 quartz automatic range that actually works well.

Agree.

But its true that for example a similar Vacheron Constantin vintage is always cheaper and a bit less known (so even better).

I am even considering buying a formal Patek Quartz for full "zero fucks given" core.

They are not worth it, but thats the joke after all, and for sure look nice.

And the small/medium old ones are pretty affordable even not being good value.

The intelligent move for high end quartz is obviously a Grand Seiko, but who cares?

Are there any good flashy looking watches that are black and gold for under $100? I tend to like diamond watches I can't afford and I'm looking for something exceptionally nice on a budget. I'd be willing to increase my budge some if need be. I'd also be willing to drop the black and gold scheme for an equally flashy look.

and im not expecting diamonds in my price range

@w8t4u
If you're looking for 'flashy' go for an Invicta or some other shit. This watch is plenty flashy but also refined. You can usually find them for as low as $120 to $200.

Do not EVER buy from one of these new minimalist brands (eg: fossil, MVMT, Daniel Wellingshit, etc). They use exactly the same movement and materials that you can find on a $15 minimalist watch on aliexpress. If you want a decent looking cheap watch go for Seiko or other Japanese automatic watches

@farquit
Fossil is trying, has some decent stuff regarding quality both sold as Fossil brand "swiss made" range or Skagen etc. But those are not cheap, so you can as well buy something more reputable.

Their cheap stuff is... cheap, and by all means worse than similarly priced traditional japanese brand stuff (casio, orient, citizen or seiko). Better than other "fashion brand watches"? Maybe in some cases. Most of them are made in China with who knows what movements.

Wouldnt cop.

How does the quality of Tudor compare to Rolex?

massdebater
massdebater

@Sir_Gallonhead
Tudor has had different eras.

Todays Yudors are very very good, their in hpuse movements are in some aspects quite similar to Rolexs and cosc certified. In past times they have used generic etasa movements, not bad but a bit less apealing.

There are a few videos comparing them at Youtube.

IMO, id never buy a modern Datejust or Submariner having the option of the equivalent Tudors for half the price. But if you "need" a Rolex Crown on your wrist i would not blame you either.
