    That ALS movement, yes, it is absolutely beautiful, no question; a work of art and they keep time as well as many quartz movements, especially with the right watchmaker. But it costs a fortune and is quite fragile, not to mention cased in such a way as to make it very conspicous.
    The quartz movement is not the best-looking example either, but then that's the point isn't it? It's like a gay man putting up a picture of Denzel next to Olive Oil and saying "This is why I prefer men". It's a deliberately disingenuous comparison.
    I am not, repeat not trying to convert people to the side of quartz. I just get heartily sick of people who prefer mechanical watches pretending that quartz mvts have no value or cannot be made to an incredibly high standard worth paying a lot of money for.
    Hey, I own quartz watches, so no need to convert me. I just like the mechanical movements better, and would invest more money in those than a quartz. I think quartz has become a victim of it's own success in that regard. In the beginning, they were a new technology, and mechanical was the order of the day. For the majority of people, the quartz movement that has accuracy measured in seconds per year is more than adequate for their needs, and appears pedestrian in comparison to a mechanical.

    It should come as no surprise that on a forum loaded with guys that eschew modern shaving trappings there would be a bit of an affection of the old technology of mechanical watches. A can of shaving cream and a mach 3/fusion are more efficient shaving machines and you would have to try pretty hard to get a nick. We are still here enjoying the old ways though.

    I will admit I am lured by the Bulova Precisionist, but have seen some long term tests wherein the accuracy really starts to tank after the first year over at watchuseek.

    Gluttons for punishment. Nicks and cuts from sharp steel blades, watches that are off seconds per day. What will they think of next?
    Have a great shave!

    Finally picked up a decent Zulu strap for my trust old Seiko.
    Wore it today and it felt great on my wrist.

    I think it's safe to say Chris likes black NATOs Nice watches (in particular that Ti Eco-Drive that shows up once in a while) and photo skills.

    For the past few weeks, my new collection of HMT's haven't left my wrist. Once I get around to photographing them, I'll post a thread withj these unique, vintage-inspired cheap mechanicals. :)

    I love that Ocean 7. Does it have a model number? I have seen it here and on WUS a few times but only described as "Ocean 7".

    Thanks!

    The Ocean 7 looks very nice, I just don't have the wrist for it. Here's something similar from CW that it reminds me of:

    I have quartz and automatic watches. I like them both but the automatic watches have much more character than the quartz watches. Quartz works excellent and it's boring.

    Its the Ocean 7 LM-PC 'Pilot Chrono'

    http://www.ocean7watchco.com/Product...ductCode=LM-PC

    Its a pretty nice watch I must say. The decoration on the movement leaves something to be desired, but its very accurate (I believe I read somewhere that it has the same movement as some of the Breitling models), the lume is great, and it fits very nicely on my small wrist for being a large watch (44mm of all face). I love looking at the orange lume at night. I will post a pic of the lume in a few minutes for my post tomorrow.
