        You're paying for timekeeping accuracy

        My $100 watch has a GPS receiver for atomic-clock accuracy. Does this?

        • +9 votes

          No. But you don’t need to change the battery with this.

          How accurate is your $100 watch when the battery runs flat?

            @Eeples: Touche.

          • +3 votes

            @Eeples: I don't have to change the battery on my citizen eco drive, way cheaper than this! But then again, if I had the money I'd probably buy a Patek Phillipe just because I could.

              @spacemannn: some people buy theses types of watches because they appreciate the engineering, some people like the looks, the question is is this watch a deal based on normal prices rather than is it the cheapest way to tell the time.

              1/2 price omega or rolex would would get an interesting reception on ozbargain bargain.

              •  

                @garage sale: Very few appreciate here would appreciate the engineering of a watch caliber.

            •  

              @spacemannn: You have to replace the capacitor on the citizen eco every 6 years or so, which is expensive

              • +3 votes

                @jaclarkaus: my citizen has been going for over 14 years, no capacitor change.

            @Eeples: There are watches with solar charging as well as atomic time keeping. That is if you prefer function over form, though.

            •  

              @scoots: My Euro Ti Citizen Nighthawk blue on white dial is a very nice looking watch. Light and functional and a daily 24/7 driver.

              And relatively rare and appreciating too since it went out of production 15 years ago.

              And it has solar and atomic clock sync (but the atomic is in Germany so doesnt work here).

              So you can get both if you want.

              But if you want a peacocks tail then it has to be an expensive heavy basic mechanical Swiss watch, the more expensive the better. And you probably wont be wearing it 24/7 either.

      Same concept as jewellery because that's what it essentially is. The value isn't in its utility.

      • +3 votes

        Thats what I'm saying. The value is in the expense. Nobody would want a diamond ring if the stones cost $1.
        A cheap diamond is worthless.

        Lowering the price lowers the value. Such a product cannot by its nature be a bargain.

          Like that? Yeah but at the same time a lot of engineering does go into the watch. The input costs are high in terms of labour and machinery required to make the things. But then it only performs the same function as a 5 buck watch. Shrug!

          Anyway, I like watches.

            @gakko: Sorry about the $5 hyperbole. I just mean that telling the time costs $5, and the rest is the pretty case. Nobody wants a $5 watch.
            But $2700!!?

    Standard discount for an Oris. 25% off is a minimum for this brand from an AD. I get mine at 30% off no questions asked.

    •  

      Do you just ask for a discount from the salesperson?

    •  

      Yeah oris, rado and tag unfortunately do have 25% off time to time which does devalue some of them. As long as you buy them on sale you shouldnt get hit too much.

      Rolex dont, hence why they keep the value

        •  

          No.. Rolex is a marketing symbol.
          I personally have zero interest or desire for a Rolex. But I certainly wouldn't be paying $2500 on an Oris either…

      You don't buy mechanical watches to tell the time 😂

    pretty sure i under appreciate the quality and worksmanship behind the watch. but OMG that price tag. still, it is one damn fine looking watch

        Boy, I had never heard that name before. How many luxury watchmakers are there in Switzerland 🤔? Checked out the website and almost fainted! I will go back to admiring my Naviforce that I bought from one of the Ozb deals a few years ago 😋

        •  

          neither had i…just got into watches this year. VC are the oldest Swiss watchmaker. . saw this amazing VC watch with blue dial (probably the Overseas?) posted on reddit and fell in love.

          most i've ever spent on a watch so far was $299 (both Seiko Prospex SRPC31J and Citizen Promaster Titanium BN0200-81E), and that's only after discounts. so goes without saying, i'm into the cheaper stuff as well. there's nothing quite like a hidden gem off ali express

      Pilot watches are traditionally large. However it would likely be too large for me. 42mm is about the maximum I can pull off comfortably on a pilot watch

      •  

        the size of the pilot watch is one of the appeals.

    Wow ,it comes with 2 year warranty ( with option to extend)…

      Bit disappointing. Lots of watch houses have moved to 5 years

        That's what I meant, looking at price I thought it would have life time warranty…

          Don't know of any mechanical watch that has lifetime. I bought an Omega for a millstone birthday - 5 year warranty. Even Rolex is not lifetime.

    Do people who get these watches even need ozb?

      one could argue that ozbargain is how they manage to save enough to get a $2k watch.

        And 60k+ Tesla with triple digits upvotes? Dont think price point is relevant.

    Look up Jomashop or Ashford for better pricing with a caveat that the warranty is from them. Have bought a couple of Oris, Longines and Ball watches and so far they all have been genuine and working fine!

    All watches show time but some watches show your time.

  •  

    For these "automatic" watches - how much is servicing and how often do they need to be serviced???

    • +3 votes

      Generally every 5-10 years, but realistically only when you notice accuracy is out of spec (can be 20 years for some)

      Price depends on the movement. A basic modified ETA /sellita movement like this one wouldn't cost more than 500.

    This is just a flashy Timex Expedition Scout ($116) https://www.amazon.com.au/Timex-Mens-Expedition-Scout-Watch/...

    • +9 votes

      Another way to look at it is: the Timex Expedition Scout is a cheap knock off of an Oris Big Crown ProPilot TLP Limited Edition. :-)

    •  

      If you mean flashy in that it is automatic, looks to be a more aesthetically pleasing design, made with greater precision from superior materials, then yes it is.

        Might need to see a neurosurgeon or take Units 1/2 of English again. So if I spend $2,600 on this watch, what money LEFT would I have to buy for food? Get it? Need more help? Let me know. Happy to walk you through comprehension.
