My first Seiko: SBDJ057

The last one reminds me of my Casio Duro

commented on Rado: Luxury or Fashion watch brand? ยท

Rado is (was) known for unique designs with different materials, especially ceramic. The Diastar comes to mind.

And some of them like the captain Cook have a neat spinning logo which never fails to amuse.

They're the quirky alternative in the Swatch entry luxury category.

commented on Catch or Release ยท

There's some overlap but I would keep both:

Green vs blue

Integrated vs quick release bracelet

Date vs no date

Tool/GADA vibe vs dressier vibe

Both watches are on my wish list so I might be a little biased :)

commented on How many? ยท

I can't vote, my watchbox has four empty spots out of twelve

Rejected by a poll ๐Ÿ˜ญ

commented on I found a mechanical chronograph which I like the look of - anyone have knowledge about the movement? ยท

A 7753 is a variation of the ETA/Valjoux 7750.

They are in use since the 80s, but are based on even older designs. A stock 7753 can be serviced by any watchmaker worth leaving your watch with.

However.. Tissot made several modifications to up the power reserve and make it handwound., I can't tell you how much that impacts serviceability.

It's a good looking watch for sure.

commented on Addiction to WatchCrunch ยท

It's part of the bigger watch addiction for sure.

But it's the healthiest part for me. No scrolling through listings on ebay out of boredom but mostly seeing people being enthousiastic with an occasional amusing rant as palate cleanser.

Between B and C

When we're going to a party or a restaurant she might ask me which watch I'll be wearing, just like I might ask which clothes/jewelry/shoes she'll pick. It makes everything more fun showing such interest.

Then at random times I'll show her something watch related on my phone and she'll go "uhuh cool" , "wow hideous", "that is HOW much??" or even "not now I have a headache".

I wouldn't mind more involvement but I'm happy already.
