Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on October 13, 2021, 10:35:37 PMNice. Been meaning to look for a raketa, chrono24 is legit is it? Wasn't sure tbh.Also is that a cloth face? What's going on there?
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on October 14, 2021, 10:29:11 AMIt's cloth-like but just a matte finish I think.
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on October 14, 2021, 10:29:11 AMIt's cloth-like but just a matte finish I think.Chrono24 seems ok, they hold the cash in escrow until the stuff turns up, and I got tracking although it was spotty, I think that's down to the carrier.The movement seems to be decent, the watch was apparently serviced and so far appears to be more accurate than the seiko 5 I bought new.
Quote from: Blinder Data on November 11, 2021, 01:54:07 PMWhat's the most you've spent on a watch? I'm looking at a Sturamnskie which would be around £400. Insane, really, but they look great (and peanuts compared to what some people spend!).
Quote from: FerriswheelBueller on November 11, 2021, 01:57:04 PMThe Raketa at 60 quid is the most I've ever spent, but most watches I have are Casio/Swatch, and the rest have been gifts. I'd love one of these but at 80 quid I'm struggling to justify it. Maybe Christmas or something.

Quote from: Blue Jam on November 15, 2021, 11:47:34 AMIsn't £80 cheap for a Raketa? Anyway, just ThInK hOw MuCh YoU'lL sAVe On BaTtErIeSI like this one:https://raketa.com/w/en/product/raketa-polyarnie-0241/Looks like it's from Thunderbirds or off someone with eyebrows in The Spy Who Loved Me. Got enough watches tho.
Quote from: touchingcloth on November 19, 2021, 10:25:31 PMPlanes, right. Why do they sell watches alongside Pringles and tiny little blocks of cheese on flights? Who's the market for those? Has anyone ever bought one? Is it a code for drugs or handjobs like when the ice cream van comes round in January?
Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on November 19, 2021, 10:31:27 PMBecause back in the day (and still to a certain extent now) you were only allowed to carry a certain amount of currency out the country so rich fuckers would buy a bit of jewellery and wear it on their wrist and cash it in at the destination.
Quote from: Claude the Racecar Driving Rockstar Super Sleuth on November 19, 2021, 09:25:56 PMAnd which arm should a watch be worn on? I've always worn mine on the right, but I read that it should go on the left, so you can use the dial without taking it off. I tried wearing it on my left wrist but it felt wrong and it didn't make the dial any easier to use.
Quote from: Blinder Data on November 19, 2021, 10:42:31 PMTraditionally it's on the arm you use the least, so for most people's it's left. But only bellends really care about that sort of stuff.
Quote from: touchingcloth on November 19, 2021, 11:05:11 PMOh, yeah. Awful habit. I sometimes do it when on a long drive as it's easier to see with hands on a wheel. But cars have clocks so I got bored of this quickly.

Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on November 19, 2021, 11:31:09 PMThis raises an interesting (or tedious) point, I found when I drive (which I don't do often nowadays) it's generally my dominant hand doing the work, so generally don't bother with my left at all. When I've driven on holiday I've tried to naturally 'mirror image' my driving with my arm resting on the door half the time and nah, just doesn't work, have to right-hand it. I know you're in Portugal and with time I'm sure it becomes natural.
