They used to, but they moved to elabore which they upgraded like a madman than back to top, nowadays it's random what you get in a 556. But some dudes say they would prefer the upgraded elabore because it's more accurate.
I wonder if it's possible to make a Venus-rated watch. Pressure requirement should be a bit under 1000m WR, so that's definitely doable, but surface temperature is going to be about 460°C, which means traditional gaskets will be destroyed, steel parts will heat way beyond the temperature for bluing, and springs will completely lose their tension. For quartz watches electronics will burn, plastics will melt, soldering will melt (even the melting point of silver solder is around the surface Venus temperature) and probably a lot of other nasty shit.
can you think of any materials that can withstand those temperatures while still take on the function of every component of a watch?
Will wearing your automatic watches while golfing fuck up their movements? Went golfing with a few higher ups last weekend and a few of them of were wearing nice watches. I know they have money but still.
Only if you fuck up the swing or hit something hard to cause sufficient shock. Most mid tier movements will even have sufficient shock resistance to be fine with playing golf.
Forgive me my rudeness, you are the hero we deserve.
>you will never take a digital casino watch face and all the internals and put it in the Shell of your real but broken watch after gutting all the mechanics out
Nice I wish mine looked as nice as yours. I got mine on a used auction from ebay for 55 dollars.
Damn, mine was 23 € with 16 € mail. Listing was all french and I found it pretty much accidentally. The only fault is that the piezo is not working, but I never use it anyways, I disabled it on the a158 I have.
I guess that happens a lot because my light doesn't work either.
My grandfather bought this Swatch for 1$ in 1989. It's still running and he still wears it occasionally. The strap broke multiple times, so he glued some random one on as a fix. He's a real handyman.
It's probably doable If we put an oil-filled watch that's built like a tank in something like pic related, it would work, I bet. Weakest point would be the dial side.
I've been keeping an eye out for old casiotrons on ebay. They can go for under $50 if suuupper lucky
So a thermocompensated, oil filled Casio F91W made out of iridium or tungsten. Display and PCB made of synthetic diamond with tungsten traces. Radioactive diamond battery for power. To hell with the strap, make it magnetic to stick on the outside of a pressure suit wherever is convenient.
besides some divers seikos are trash, even the grand seikos
Basically, but the magnetic solution to replace the straps won't work, because magnets don't work over 80 C
Watches aren't worth buying unless it's at least 3k. That's a cutoff point for a shitter.
you replied me because you are one of those glorified seiko 5 users
want me to post the "technologies" from the catalogue ? they have: >dehumidifying (very expensive meme) >lubrication free anchor escapement >oil-filled meme >magnetic field protection >temperature resistance >tegimented steal >SUG cases >meme pvd coating >meme bezel >testaf, dnv gl standards
And there are other "technologies" not worthy of mentioning, but those are included within every sinn (556, 104 too) Those are: >sinn's special oil in the movement >some secret stuff they do with the etas >low pressure resistance >better heat resistance than other watches in the same league >their stainless steal is kinda good too
