    So ignoring price (kind of), Which would you buy? And if not one of the three which other would you buy. Must meet the criteria: 1. Must be water resistant/proof to 100m minimum (Wear it in the shower, to bed etc.). 2. Must not have a bezel. 3. Must have only a hour, minute and second hand...
  3. Casio G-Shock
    Hi, I was wondering why that feature vanished. The ancient DW-5600 has had it, more recent models with a "Ralley-Timer" have it as well, even if limited to that mode, it cannot be a matter of battery-issues. We are may not be representative for Casio's entire target-group of customers, but...
  4. Pens & Writing instruments
    Lately, I have been acquiring flex nibs from Japanese makers such as Namiki and Platinum. I would add these are purchased on the pen as opposed to special order. But if I get a regular nib, I have it modified to add character to the writing. What do you do?

    Given the choice, do you prefer a strap or a bracelet on your watch? ie. which would you *generally* prefer to wear? Essentially, are you a strap man or a bracelet man? (Or woman, as the case may be! ):-d And why? I favour bracelets, personally. Not only do I think they generally look best...

    Hello all, out at the mall today and stopped into one of the "Jewelers" and took a look at the Casio Edifices. Aftee reviewing their specifications I formed an opinion, but am looking to my fellow Horophiles for an informed census of opinion. All input is welcome, don't censure yourself! Also if...
  8. Seiko
    I've been reading and wondering a bit about this as I shop for my first automatic. The information that I've found out there is patchy at best. Now I'm curious, how many of you out there force-hack your non hacking movements, such as the 7s26 in the OM? An official poll.
  9. Russian watches
    Hi guys, (comrades, I must say) It's been a while since my last Russian piece, and since I've made some extra money this month, I'm now willing to add a new watch into my Russian collection. The problem is I can't decide which one I would go for among these following three: Chronograph...
  10. Chinese Mechanical watches
    So, it would be very interesting to see how many of 1963s or D304s that have ended up in the hands of WUS members. 1963s I know that there are quite a few different 1963s models/batches so I have taken the info from gigfy's knowledge of the ones: jtbold sourced the first batch (19 zuan...

    I wonder what the view is on two-tone watches. I'm very split on the subject. There are two things I think of, usefulness and esthetics. I then think of men's and women's models. For women I find a two-tone both useful and esthetically pleasing or at least not offensive. It is useful because a...

    This is NOT a debate which one is better! This is just to get a feel for how the WUS collections are made up. For example, do you have clearly more mechanicals than quartz, or the other way around? Or is it half-half? Pick the ratio that's closest. I think for me it's quite exactly 2/3 quartz...

    Simple question: When you buy a watch, what's more important for you, the movement or the looks? I recognize that there is also a point about functionality. But the way I see it we can handily integrate that into either category. Example: You like divers. A diver's function depends largely on...

    Do you like to hear the rotor in an automatic watch when you shake the watch close to your ear? I actually like that whizzing sound and appreciate the subtle differences there are. I saw a guy once who could tell the car make and model by the sound of the door closing. I wonder if people can do...
  15. Casio G-Shock
    Hey guys, for those who rarely stray into the public forum, I just made a poll there asking the general membership who owns a G-Shock. There might be many who own one but don't post here. Here is the link: https://www.watchuseek.com/f2/g-shock-real-must-watch-who-owns-one-440192.html Have a...

    We get tons of threads asking for people who are looking for a good watch for sports that will take a beating, has certain sports related function, is accurate and won't cost much, so that if it gets lost or destroyed the loss is not so big. The standard answer is to buy a Casio G-Shock. And I...
  17. Rolex & Tudor
    What do you think about the new Rolex Rehaut? I mean the repeated engraving (etching probably) of the word Rolex all around the chapter ring. I personally find it ugly and very distracting. I also find it somehow boastful. I mean nobody but you can really see it but it's like people need to be...
  18. Casio G-Shock
    What's your preference? The four button models a la 5600 series or the five button a la 66/6900 series with the extra fat light switch. Or would you even like to see something like a six button or seven button solution as we can see it on some PAWs or Timex watches? You get TWO choices. So...
  19. Straps & Bracelets
    The title says it all. There are tons of options available to attach a watch to your hand. One choice might be too restrictive so I ask your top two. There are also all kinds of reasons to consider like looks, price, durability, comfort, fashion, ethical (no leather), function (diving). So...

    I'm a complete newbie when it comes to watches. In fact, I've never owned a "nice" watch in my life. I've been browsing through a bunch of watches and the two that appeal to me most (at my price range) are (in alphabetical order): Citizen BJ7010-59E [flickr.com] Tissot PRC 200 T17.1.586.52...
