Just got this citizen from carousell. Nice polished finish, except the bezel.

congrats! the 64 kuroshio.

can take closer up of the dial in brighter setting?

change to a matching strap will make this watch standout. :D

Here we go. A bit difficult to take clear picture because the double domed crystal is very reflective.

Any idea of leather strap color to match this? :)

blue leather with side white stitching will look good i feel.

i like straps from a strapmaker called seventhcreation, bought a couple of straps from him before, v comfortable to wear. u can take a look at his instagram.

if u want local no frills and popular one is nomadwatchworks.

Interesting, looks a bit like cocktail time, but definitely a lot more subtle.

yah the double doom crystal makes it abit hard to capture the dial nicely. but its ok u done it quite good already, very nice dial. just felt that the thickness is abit thin, other than that its all quite good.

Maybe i will get from barton, they have blue leather with white stitching. Else just get from nomad, they have few choice of navy color leather.

Btw, where do you get your green leather for the orient kingdiver?

my green strap is from delugs straps, he's a local strapmaker. check out his ig/fb.

yah nomad is not bad, i got few straps from them as well. else can consider colareb also not bad.

straps is super poisonous, too many nice strapmakers in instagram, abit addictive.

So far the whole watch felt great. finishing, bracelet, clasp very well made. lug to lug about 50. Very comfortable to wear. While there is no micro adjustment but comes with half link. AR is fantastic. best part, as its discontinue , brand new from AD (US) is 50% off.

Hi guys... New here. I've been wearing a sovil et Titus automatic watch (I know not in your league of brands) for more than 5 years and recently I've been asked me to consider upgrading for professional image... Also cause my current watch mechanism is a little faulty.

Current watch looks something like that: https://images.app.goo.gl/AL1AoHmKQCu64JcB7

I went watch shopping before CB and I couldn't find nice automatic watches for female.
Was wondering if you guys could recommend me? I probably looking at a budget of not more than $2k (is it possible? Of course I'd prefer if it's much cheaper like a few hundreds :s12:)

Thanks. :s12:

Nice but try not to get get your watch wet. You will roughly know what happens when you mix wood and water, basically a ugly ending on your wrist. :(

I presume u want a time only or time/date only watch
If u don’t mind Japanese, Seiko or Citizen plenty of choices
If u want Swiss, u can consider Longines, Mido, Rado, Tissot

do not buy truwood.

i bought it before. The strap broke within 5 wears on the wrist (office environment) (bought less than 1 month) and the company will NOT send you any replacement for the strap.

hard to find "aftermarket" watch strap because of the overall design..

novelty watches nia, see is nice but dont spend your money on it..

I wouldn't suggest ladies to wear an automatic watch. Too much of a hassle if the person is just treating it as a watch and has no interest in horology. Just wear a quartz, wear and forget

If you're female, I recommend add a couple of hundreds and get a pre-owned Cartier.


Although quick check Carousell there are some pre-owned Cartier less than $2000.
