Newbie from Indonesia

Postby noobsnoot » March 8th 2017, 11:20am

Hey guys, I'm new here and not so active in any forums until I got an email from the admin.

Anyway, I'm here to share and see what watch people do here have and how you guys perceive one to another.

Currently I own:
- DKNY fashion quartz watch
my first watch without any knowledge but assume it looked good on me - not seeing it that way anymore

- Movado Museum Quartz
Heard from colleague that movado is a respectable brand so bought it, again with very little knowledge of watch

- Corniche Mistral Forty quartz (a gift from my sister)

- invicta speedway (daytona look) with white dial
In love with Daytona but still cannot afford it so I bought this so cheap like $65. Nothing much to be proud off but yeah I still like the way it looks. I hate the bracelet as it's so sharp and sometime it hurts my fingernail just to open the clasp. Right now it's sitting on the green nylon nato. Love the way it looks now.

- Seiko Sea-Urchin SNZF17
My first automatic watch and it is a higher maintenance watch that dies if you don't wear it. Not the best accuracy as it gains more than 60 secs a day, yes A DAY. Love the way it looks and it fits on my hand and I have been changing the straps from the original bracelet - black real croco leather - nylon natos- leather nato. So far its best looks is with the real croco leather. Makes the watch looks so much more expensive than it really is. Definitely one of the best cheaper diver watch in the market. I like this watch better than the SKX due to the shape of the bezel.

- Seiko Flightmaster SNA411
I bought this watch after watching the TGV youtube channel and it is a beautiful watch. Too bad it's a quartz but hey, I really enjoy the courtesy of grab-n-go without worrying that the watch need to be adjusted or winding. A nice looking quartz is a must have indeed. I also change the strap right after it arrived to me. Right now it's sitting on the black leather nato (so handsome). A non-watch enthusiast said that it's a nicer looking watch compared to the Breitling Navitimer. I know I will make people disagree and mad by saying that and I do not deny i like the navitimer too.

Future wish to buy:
- Rolex GMT Batman
- Seiko Shogun SBDC029
- JLC Mastercontrol
- and many seiko's in the short future too.

This watch came up recently in another intro. I am a fan of this one but as of yet don't own it. Urban Gentry did a nice review.

Welcome! If those 60 seconds on Your Sea Urchin are consistent, in any position, this could easily be regulated.

How so? I did run test twice and it's accurate enough. How to regulate the accuracy? Any instructional video?

None taken. But why do you think so? I found nato is more comfortable than leather or bracelet especially when working with a laptop.

I am sure one could find instructions on youtube, though maybe not specific for this movement. Regulating a watch (to run even in all positions) is pretty tricky and involves a lot of experience and means changing / fiddling around with many components in the watch. But once that is done, the speed itself can be adjusted, typically by minor variations of the effective length of the balance spring.

This should be the movement, and You can see the little lever at the balance and the plus/minus scale:

However, if You have never done so, I suggest to go to a watchmaker. Even opening the case can be tricky, and fiddling around with such delicate parts of the movement can also mean accidentally destroying something.

Nothing wrong with Nato's, sometimes they fill a gap until you can find a strap that works and they are easy to clean. Everyone has their own thoughts on every thing about watches.

Since they are easy to clean, perhaps I should try one of these on my latest dress watch

Thanks, I think I will just service the seiko, I don't know how much will it cost me but I hope it's not much as the watch itself is quite cheap.
