Where is the compass? cool though it does technically need one and the latitude adjustment amazon has them with both for $20 or $30 lots taller than this though

I calculated my new Seiko (Tuna 033) diver watch’s accuracy. It’s minus 5 seconds a month. I wish it was plus 5 seconds a month instead. Makes it easier to correct. Oh well, it’s light years better than all my automatics. I’m extremely happy with this watch.

Have you tried regulating it, by that i mean simply leaving dial up(or down) to correct the time. Not sure which way on seiko, or even if it matters or auto’s generally work the same. Winding button down to loose a few seconds etc kind of thing. Just thoughts, but -5 seconds a month seems pretty damn awesome!!!!!!

Thanks, ven!

I would like to pick up a white dial/black bezel one, too, but Orient prices have gone up significantly in recent years.

I have nearly bit a few times here in the UK in the last 12 months!

This time(no pun intended) i have decided to try out a g shock. Its been years…………..decades!Maybe even late 80’s, you know calculator watch era lol. Hopefully i will add a few pics next week, fancy getting maybe 2 or 3 of them to swap about.

Well that seemed quick, G shock GDF100BB .

Not easy to get! had to be fast as back light only lasts a second!

So far i like it, I wanted was a digital watch to bring back some 80’s memories. Also a change from hands and to digital display as until now i had none!. Next is a mudmaster, only reason i got the BB first was simply due to being rare and all digital. Mudmasters are easier to find(well i have seen plenty so far anyway).

Watch this space! pun intended Smile

Hopefully i can stop at just 2 Facepalm

Edit- figured the back light, can change it from 1s to 3s………….job done!

Ven! sorry for the delayed response!. I haven’t tried that, but I don’t think it would make a difference on a quartz watch. I could be wrong though.

Not really because I live on the east coast (Long Island, NY) where there’s a very weak signal. I have a satellite wall clock that almost always never connects. I think it might have connected twice in the 6 months I’ve owned it

Sometimes the older ‘atomic clocks’ just quit working.
I’ve never known why.
But plenty of other atomic clocks in the same place, resync every night.
So, just because one clock quit, doesn’t mean the signal is weak or changed.

Can anyone explain the different grading of replica watch?

I have seen grading of JF, N8, AAA, A, V9, V7 etc but don’t know what is the difference between them.

As I know there’s a difference between traditional radio controlled watches and satellite / GPS controlled ones like the Seiko Astron for example. You can sync your GPS controlled watch anywhere in the world while the syncing of the radio controlled ones are limited to the reach of the emitters.

Hi.
Tried cheap watches in younger days.
I spend too much time IN water and rough on construction sites.

This watch Citizen Solar screen, Rolex basic copy. 15\16 yrs. never touched it. keeps perfect time according to my GPS. $470 Tax free in Germany. (Passing through, at jewellers)
Prev. A Seiko Went for 18 yrs. AUTOmatic. Adjusted around every 12 months by several seconds. Around $240. Then.
Shook it apart when working a big Jackhammer breaking some concrete for a coupla days. (Forgot about it)

Prev. An Omega Seamaster. Had from 18 yrs old, Bought in Germany while in Army, back in late ’50’s.
Would still have it but Wrist strap pin went while out night sailing and it didn’t float. Bummer.
Personally. I reckon a decent watch. Bought once. works well. Gives no problems, and Usually. Lasts forever.

3 in 50odd yrs. Used daily. Never a problem (usage wise)
is great value for money.

I have an Omega “dress Watch” for around 45\46 yrs. That fine
for going out dressed up..
But normally I always use the 200mtr divers watches
They worth the extra.
Basically 77yrs old next month on 3 watches.
Ain’t too bad hey.

I love Nixie Tubes! I have a Nixie Tube Clock. I purchased this one back in 2003. Still works like a champ. The flickering isn’t visible to the naked eye.
