Someone once said that the Speedy looks like a Swatch Watch...

I wanted to ask why not the BB58? Then I realised that you already have a Tudor.
Speedy... like a Swatch watch?!?! Seriously... then I am sure APROC/ROO should be like. G-shock lolx

Nah....I sold me diamond Tudor about 2 years ago...

To a fine gentleman who works around Tanjong Pagar

Sure. Can intro me?

In life there are winners and losers lah.

Having been a loser before holding all these worthless watches from fugged up brands, I don't want to repeat my mistake.

You can go bring all the newbies here to horlan ba. At the same time, you can console them "dont sell, no lose!" "Watch collection is a hobby, not investment!"

You all can sit together staring at your fools gold equivalent of watches bought for passion and w@nk each other off and cum ba.
Wah sure boh, you say yourself until such a loser by holding so many watches from fugged brands. I only hold one fugged up tissot in the past. Spoilt within months. After that i decided to look for better brands for better quality and quite surprisingly i think tudor quality is good enough. Ofcos tudor much more expensive than my spoilt tissot and other brands i have like aries gold, citizen and casio g shock. But i think by paying much more we are also getting better quality stuff. Although admit that price and quality not proportional. Have to pay a lot more to get a decent quality. I mean its like you cant expect to pay a few hundred dollars to expect a good quality great finishing mechanical watch like tudor right?

I have been a loser buying other stuff in life but have learnt my mistakes as well. Now i try to save $ and only buy stuff that i really like.

I had apologized to him.

Intermittent brain fart at that moment. Too engrossed in admiring the pristine case.

If I’m not wrong, the bluetooth is mainly for time sync and setting of functions (alarms, world time etc). It’s not really for phone notifications.
Cheers for the info

It's fun lor. No one really needs it one la, just like no one needs automatic watch.

Android 9 seems to have problem with auto sync but Casio knows, so hopefully fix will come soon.

Anyways this piece cheap, just buy for fun. After all same module as the full metal G shock but much lower entry price. If lose job it is good for venting anger cos can never sell one. Can throw from top of building many times.

Anyways, I guess Bluetooth is a bit more practical than GPS or multiband,when it comes to time sync. When go overseas, the first thing most of us do is to insert local SIM prebought or data roam, you can cheap thrill and sync on the spot.

Multiband and GPS need you to find good spot to sync, so doesn't really work haha. That's why I sold my MTG.
Hahaha. Buy this, play abit of mods can be the similar to the "real deal" and also have the BT function.

Thanks so much for the input. Maybe next month pull the trigger!

Im in university haha. looking for something that can dress up or down, no need automatic.
Btw modded seiko only for diver watches?
U want up n down can consider orient bambino. Can versatile with metal bracelet, leather (by default) and also dress down with NATO straps.
Gshock is good for sports or sturdy enuff but not good for suiting up.
Seiko SKX is versatile too.

u need to see the dial color, the dial design (eg clean, messy, symmetry), the hands and many more considerations.

when it comes to Omega, which watch is more worth while to buy?

Speedmaster?
Seamaster?

btw, looking to watch as a dailybeater, don't intend to flip
Seamaster? It can be found for the same price as Black Bay 58.
