      Interested to know why it different to other watches. The citizen accutron took a bit of research until I discovered that it needed to held upside down for date change

      To set date and hour ,pull crown out advance hr to correct date and same for hour, push crown in for 3-5 secs release and push back in to advance minute hand, same for second hand hold to correct time and release. that's best I can explain. that's alot different to a normal watch.

      That's very interesting, Pete. Casio has some Analog and Ana-Digi watches that don't have a crown, and here's one example... https://www.timekeeper.co.nz/forum/w...r-wts-titanium ...The way the hands are set is similar to what you described of this Tissot. Tempus has a vintage G-Shock Analog that does a similar thing.

    Big week for me watch-wise this week. My work advised us earlier this month that they had been incorrectly paying for paid break times for years and would backpay what we were owed mid-month, gave me some spare change that I used to pick up something that had been on my mind for a long time, and am glad to share it with you all this Friday.

    The majority of the watches I have bought are ones that I love to wear, but don’t believe NZ watchmakers will work on them if issues arise unfortunately, so I thought to myself the next time I buy something I really want one that both looks good and can be worked on in the future without too much of a cost to myself. Might be a cliché choice but I think it’s popular for a good reason.

    Used an express shipping option to get it to me amid all the craziness at the moment. The case has great lines and a reserved size, a decent movement and versatile killer looks – the bracelet is fine for me even with its minor flaws, and I’m looking forward to trying all sorts of straps with this one, although I have luckily managed to get a great fit on the bracelet as well (which seems to be a complaint among a lot of owners). It’s not an expensive watch comparative to a lot of others, but it is easily the most I have ever spent on one in 2 or so years in this hobby and I hope to have it for a long time.

    Seiko SARB033

    Hope you all have a great weekend and stay safe during these uncertain times.

      +1 to all the above! ...SARB033 is, IMO, the quintessential Seiko mechanical gents watch--everything great about Seiko gents mechanical, including the essential value-for-money factor went into this piece. Having being discontinued in 2018, you are very wise to grab one while they can still be found, as I don't think any of the Presage that replaced the model hit the mark like the '033. I'd really love to read a review from you on this one when you find time, Gauss.

      what is it about these things, they just have so much character, this is a very cool looking piece Scouser 11/10

      Love the lume, the orange, the 'loads of pushers' and love the starburst case finish

      What H said... Has a real 1970s sci-fi retro-futuristic-dystopia vibe to it

      Rolex should definitely have offered the Yacht-Master with straps like these--brings out the head more, IMO.

      You must be keeping track of GMT+10? ...not many places on GMT-2, I don't think.

      Don I actually usually have it on GMT+7 as my brother lives in Jakarta, however it looks like this is actually on GMT+10 for AEST and hasn’t been adjusted since DST started here last spring. So it’s currently accurate for Queensland and that’s about it.

    Bronze Seaforth. Very happy with my final setup. Blue Eulit perlon with the OEM bronze buckle fitted. Have some more on order for a few other watches - I think a blue perlon will look awesome on the teal / blue Seiko Jumbo.

    Hard to believe but that is a blue metallic dial and blue Eulit perlon!

      The bronze is taking on a nice looking patina, cool watch!

      Contrast of the two textures on a common tone is pleasing.

    I'm hoping it will get the same patina as this one.

      Very nice showcasing today on previous posts

      I think I have the honour of the most inexpensive watch on this thread. You know it's crazy when one of your most favourite watches also happens to be the easiest on the pocket. When that happens, the dial usually has "Автоподзавод" (Automatic) on it

        Same here ...This is actually my first 170 Case, Gauss, though I still can't tell the difference between this and the 150 Case, apart from the brushed finish. I'm liking the sandwich dial a lot, and it makes the dial legible from a wider angle than conventional one-piece type. Great that Chistopol includes on this Vostok's signature paddle hands, and for some odd reason, I prefer its regular run-of-the-mill Amphibia case back to the Special Edition ones.

        I’m hoping they’ll release this dial in a 710 case... probably a good excuse for some lock down modding, but with Russian shipping times, be all over by then.

        @ kiwi.bloke ...Yeah, I think this dial would suit a 710 too. I do like the 710 Ministry case for the reason that it has more ties to historical Amphibia. Re Russian shipping time, I've found that it has a lot to do with the destination country. When I was in Auckland, 4 weeks transit time is the norm, but from Chistopol to Bangkok, only around 7 business days, so 1 1/2 weeks.
