Watches - another passion of ours, it seems...post your pics! - Page 483

post #7231 of 7705

Funny story my roommate told me today. So his teacher, one that I had last year, he saw was wearing a nice watch so he went over to him and asked him about it and he said it was a Cartier watch. Then he told him that it cost $17k. He was dumbfounded at the price. Then he said that it was not the one he wanted because he got it as a gift from his wife. The watch that he wanted was $1,000.... He must have been a little upset when he checked his bank account.

I've been wanting one of these for a while.

 

Finally decided to get one because I needed a beater to wear while I work outside.

 

It's a classic, I hope it doesn't look too nerdy.

Has anyone got any experience with Seiko EPD watches from SDGA, SBFG, SBGA series? I have been thinking about getting a good digital watch for a while and these seem to tick a lot of boxes.

Any other recommendations for solar/ atomic watches on the higher end of the spectrum?

They're so much fun! I have this one: 

 

 

Man, I always forget to update this thread with my new watches! Spend too much time on Watchuseek and am hardly on Head-Fi anymore. Since my last update I've bought a Wenger Expedition Grey, a Sottomarino Strumento Gauge, a Vostok Amphibia, a Vostok Komandirskie and a vintage Alexander Hi-Tek.

I like them. They're kind of Bauhaus. Given druthers, I'd go for the black face.

G-Shock

Gotta love 'em.

Its a Raketa(Rocket) soviet, fully mechanical and with a 24 hour movement and rotating bezel I am extremely fond of.

I like Russian watches much better than Swiss, I think they are less overblown

Same problem here. I kind of lost it with the watches when I got one for birthday present three months ago. cool.gif

 

What model is this g-shock? It looks cool, simple and no rainbow colors like many of them have.

Its the military version of the stock gshock.

 

I like it, but it's double the price of the standard model.

post #7241 of 7705
anyone else have an interest in Russian-made watches?

those by companies like Vostok, Maktime, Volmax, and what used to be Poljot?


I cant wait for my Vostok Komandirskie 431186 to ship in for the next couple weeks.

I read up they are military style, inexpensive watches.

usually novelty watches, but i like how they're from Russia, which Russian items arent what you call common in America.

It's the Casio G-Shock DW5600bb-1JF. I didn't mind paying a little more, since it was the only G-shock I'd consider wearing. :) I paid about $80 for mine on Ebay but it seems they've risen in price a fair bit since then. 

 

Someone mentioned Vostok? Here are mine!

Fossil Blue BQ9165

I was passed to me by a close cousin, who said it doesnt fit him and he doesnt want it anymore, only needing a new battery.
I am not sure of Waterproofing. but this watch HAS seen better days..

quite a few scratches (not by me) but otherwise would be considered my first watch at the age of 15.

i really like the face design, the flaw i can say about this watch that it is not very luminous.. really hard to read in the dark.

and it keeps track of time very well. as expected of a watch.

Adidas Candy (black and gold) watch.
Not really a fan of this one, among the other watches that were given to me out of family having no use of them.

Im not a fan of the perky childish term: "swag" watch.

I have no idea but it feels uncomfortable on my wrist, hence it doesnt get alot of wrist time.

and of course it has seen better days, really scratched up by the previous owner.

I am trying to get some profit out of it though.. I have no use for it, but otherwise i can always keep it to my collection.


is it normal that i like Analogue watches more than Digitals?
