No real man wears a watch.
Working with shit around your wrist or fingers is a recipe for losing skin.
You seriously look like a douchebag whipping out your phone to tell time.
Have to agree with this, LEDs are for amateur PC builders.
>pleb doesn't understand status symbols
phones aren't powered by the kinetic energy of your wrist either autistic virgin
Personally I'm looking for something cheap, functional, easy to read and eye-catching, because whipping out my phone to tell time at work is really unprofessional. Anyone got some ideas? I'm on a budget of $100.
How is that any different from someone who buys a $700 iPhone or something? Something like this isn't fashion, it's function.
How much do those run for?
If your working in a scenario that involves the potential of getting your finger caught your or body part caught your doing something wrong. You should have eliminated the risk to begin with. If you did not, you're probably under trained for the task.
Ring or watch tears your skin off, you fucked up.
Man, I love the Nixons, but having no numbers or lines on it seems like it'd be hard to read at a glance. Do you have one of those?
It's not just harder than lifting your wrist, you also look like a huge tool.
First of all the iPhone is a ripoff too.
Second, even if it wasn't, the iPhone and other smart phones have a myriad of functions that expand communication, knowledge, and entertainment.
Watches just tell you the time and look nice.
Coming from someone who had a flip phone until last year and still has never watched a video or listened to music on their smartphone, I can tell you that living without that technology is just fine.
If you have a job in customer service you can't take out your phone to check the time. And if you do it on a date you look like a knob.
It moves in real time so they can't put pluto on it. Literally moves in scale to the actual planets. Which is why it's so damn expensive.
I'll take a look and see if I can find one I like. I'd been looking at the Timeteller P watches.
Consider the following
>Doctors use watches
>Soldiers use watches
>Pilots use watches
>Drivers use watches
>Police use watches
Because it's easier to look at your wrist than pull out your phone and look at the time.
They're pretty cheap at around $60. I like the Nixon series, it's probably gonna be a toss-up, but I'm debating between solid black or something
Classier binary watch that's less obtrusive and flashy.
>mfw you get all butthurt because i talked shit about a time telling device
>mfw you get all butthurt because I talked shit about a time telling device
>mfw double edged sword
Yeah but I kinda wanted something with a lime or purple. It's lame but they're my favorite colors.
sweet watch op. Here is what I wear.
Spec. Ops, it is rechargeable. has a blue led for light and red led for map reading. I got some other watches but this is my fave.
Best fucking thread ever.. Watch Lover here.. Anything below $1,000 gtfo.. Shitty nixons and g shocks fuck right off
Imagine how much pussy you're gonna get when word gets out that you spent thousands on a gimmicky piece of shit. If possible, try to buy the steampunk version no matter how much more expensive it may be.
Oh hell, I don't have that watch up top, that thing's like $17,000.
Dude, I would never spend $1000 on ANYTHING I owned. Sorry, but that's scary.
I wear gray and black at work, so anything works. In my normal clothes, eh, whatever.
I have an Omega Speedmaster 3573.50. I bought straight from the Omega factory in Biel, Switzerland with a handsome discount through a friend who works there in sales. It's a classic watch that can be worn with jeans and a t-shirt or dressed up with a suit.
Maybe like five years ago?
insult kinda loses it's punch when you reveal you were interested enough to look into it far enough to find out there's a steampunk version
really just screams 'i'm mad jelly i can't afford this.'
Like this one the best right now. Nixon rubber player, $175 but it's on sale right now on Watchismo.
Every nigger in this thread bashing watches has one of them queer phone watches on their crimbo list. Go back to yahoo chat faggots, adults are talking here.
Fucking forgot again
Y'know, I almost thought about getting one of those but I don't need something that tells me facebook notifications or emails or any of that shit so what's the point...
This thread was hand crafted for me by the gods.
Are Movados nice watches? I never used to wear wrist watches, but I received pic related as a gift and rarely wear it.
INVICTA MODEL 1516
My Dad has an Omega Speedmaster (astronaut watch, if i got the name correct)
Fucking awesome watch
This Casio is all you need if you have to wear a watch. Fuck off with all this feminine bullshit. Don't let the Jews win.
Dad just gave me this yesterday. Seiko World time '67
>implying there is a 100% safety record in every place with machinery ever for those who train right
Shit happens you inexperienced retard, no matter how good you are.
F1 drivers die from crashes, special forces soldiers die in combat, and even the best captains can lose their ships.
The only thing that is certain in this world is death.
I love aviation watches.
i wish I could find the company that sells different watches based on the look and style of specific WW2 planes, and uses actual metal from the actual plane. I think they have a B-17 one, a P-51, a Spitfire, and a couple more. AND they're actually affordable.
Wait.. You WANT, you LOSE thread.. Well.. I lose to this every fuckin time then..
Take all of my goddamn caps right now.
Those who lack it cannot comprehend it.
I would pay someone money for them to tell me where I could buy this
But that price... Can't justify $500 for a watch right now.
I wonder how hard it'd be to make one myself...
Except not all of us have burger-flipping jobs that are lax on looking at one's cell for the time. It's called professionalism, and a lot of customer service jobs and even blue collar jobs (in the sake of maintaining productivity) state no cells on the floor.
community college business major detected
also lots of blue collar jobs require that you dont wear any jewelry because it increases your risk of injury and secondly jewelry is for faggots and women
i hate shit on my wrists anyways, id rather have a pocket watch but my phone is in my pocket and has the time so why be a fucking insecure attention begging faggot
what about us guys that are real men and are working in places where machinery and stuff smashes into our legs, or we have to crouch and climb and bend into places where phones could get broken or bent? Plus we're getting doused with water and mud and we don't want our phones getting coated with mud? And we need to count down a 5 minute time delay on a pump motor? It's alot easier to look at my tough, durable, classy yet functional watch on my wrist than dig my damn phone out of my pocket like a teenage girl or go get it out of the truck.
no you dont look like a tool because people understand when you glance at your phone and put it right back in your pocket you're just checking the time. you are too fucking self conscious faggot
I'm a doctor and wear a watch, but many of my counterparts don't. We do it either for status/style or because some of us (like me) would also use it for discretely checking pulse and counting respirations. Now I just wear them because it looks bad to check time with a cell phone in front of attending physicians and patients.
....or try to hit the button with my muddy ass gloved hands or swipe the screen with gloves on. I see people all the time doing that, fumbling trying to get the time and I just look down slightly and shout out the time.
Personally I'm in customer service, I'm not rich, but I like having something besides a phone bulging out of my pocket to tell the time. In fact, I usually leave my phone in the back.
Almost degloved my finger wearing a ring, trying to slow down a roll of 1'' thick cables spinning.
Also, just take it off during work IF YOU WORK IN A WAREHOUSE LIKE A PEDESTRIAN.
Get a better job shit sticks.
worked for years in these conditions. Amongst many.
>mfw never had a limb ripped off by a watch
>mfw broken phone screens are everywhere
>mfw never had watch's function damaged by smashing it into machinery
>mfw seen 3 guys in one day drop their phones out of their trucks and break them, two of them were in their pockets moments before
ur a dumb sumbitch
The problem with a nixie watch is that it will need fucking many battery changes.
My next purchase will be a diver. I've got my eye on the titanium one.
watches, rings, and shiny things.
Of course, when I DO worry about catching jewelry on machinery, I remove it, and in the very rare case I remove my watch, I just prop it up or hang it from a clip so I can still see it
Actually no, since it only comes on when you hold your wrist a certain way like a smartwatch does.
It's still significantly less than your average watch though. But not as little as you think
>before cellphones and wrist watches
>what time is it..pulls out pocket watch
>after pocket watches and before cellphones
>looks at wrist
>after wrist watches and with current cellphones
>pulls phone out of pocket
it seems society is going into retrograde
nigger you just disproved your own point, phones broke from being dropped not from working conditions
fuck you're stupid no wonder you're an insecure pleb and not working in an office like a real man
I don't get these. Why do you need a watch made of titanium adamantium super space alloy 3000? You aren't climbing everest you fucking desk jockey, just means it'll rip your arm off well before it breaks if you get it caught on something.
This was given to me and my other watch broke so I'm currently wearing this. Thoughts? I'm curious what you all think. I like to wear a nice rolex when I'm not at work and a shitty $20 walmart watch when I am, and this one is too nice for work and not cool enough for dates and what not I think. Meh.
Some men like having a job where they get hands-on and dirty. It's rewarding when you come home sweaty and stinking like hell, having moved over 2,000 pounds of gravel with your bare hands or operated a machine that weighs as much as your home. Someone's gotta do that job and hell, that man's gonna take the $20 an hour it pays.
Is it waterproof?
Dude I'd fuck that up within days. First rain, it's dead.
they still got broke at work. Dumbass. Why are you so mad about people wearing watches?
Always had a love of the Ulysse Nardin Beast, and this Freak is the closest current equivalent. Look at the movement on that thing - it's so unique... nothing like it in the world.
I'll never be able to afford this. Its not only beautiful but crazy engineering.
idiot they didnt get broken by work conditions they could've broke that shit at any time by dropping their phone, your point was work conditions and you can't logic so keep doing the pleb work its all you can manage anyway
i just use my phone
seeing people who wear watches is weird. i haven't seen a person wearing a watch that wasn't an old man wearing a gold watch in forever.
oh except all the basement dwelling losers that have't realized watches are for fedora wearing faggots
itt: pic related
Lmao. nigga you mad. Curb your autism. It's just titanium...
Why would I, or anyone climb Everest with a dive watch? Don't be a fucking idiot here. I know you're struggling, but holy shit. If someone is wearing a time piece worth a shit, the will likely have the common sense to take it off their wrist before they work with any kind of tooling or equipment. God damn. Taking it off as an option didn't even cross your feeble mind.
they had their phone in FR rated overalls required for the job. If they'd been getting out of their car to go to their wall mart job like you they wouldn't have fallen out. You're caught up on some dumb shit. Go look at a cell phone thread or something.
Doesn't change the fact that it makes you look like a nigger or a try hard old ass man. Just wear leather
I don't wear a nice watch to work. I wear the nice watch out when I'm on the town in whatever town we're working in and all the women are eyeing me and the crew because we look like cleaned up barbarians that just stumbled out of the woods from a hard day of killing snakes with machetes and hooking up miles of water lines. They mentally blow us from across the bar.
>not the Casio tv remote watch
You had one job.
I think you'll have better chances building one yourself. I'm on my way building one, but my current project is using 2 Analogue voltmeters, a simple digital clock and DACs for a vintage Multimeter clock. Technically like this, but a far better design.
Harry Winston Opus 12
Still want it though
This shall be mine in the near future
Wanna get this smp bond so bad but saving for the ploprof white bezel/dial 1200m
Top fucking kek! Fat construction faggot detected. I seriously hope you're not over 25 years old.
So, if I'm reading it right, that watch is saying it's 11:23?
Why wear a watch that's obtuse? It defeats the whole purpose because even the world's sharpest person would take longer to work out the sum of the numbers than to just look at two hands that point exactly to what time it is.
Simple, classy, and cheap. And useful for timezone hopping.
This one, meanwhile, is my new daily driver. Again, simple, easy to read, and has character.
I apologize for knowing how to tear down an engine block, and not knowing how to build ashe. Go wash your fedora, faggot.
Have the chrono version, amazing watch. Where the royal oaks at
liquidmetal watch is the only way to go
This from my personal collection
Fuck forgot pic
>casios are ugly but these are sexy
Also from my collection it's a poor mans Tag Heuer Monaco
Winding key. To quote from Daniels' book "Watchmaking" (which you should get if you're into horological porn at all), "The watches illustrated in this book are all wound with a key. The reason for this is that keyless, or stem-wound, watches are generally neat in appearance but difficult to wind." and then goes on about aesthetics and whatnot.
