This and a sub and I think I could be good for a while (I mean for daily wear, I'd have to keep the vintage and special pieces, never mind)

Love this. A black dressy watch like this or an equivalent GSq could be next on my list.

Nomos for me (old pic) for an interesting day out at the Tilbury Docks Festival – art, culture, history, and a tour of the docks by boat

Thanks Mark, the finish on this is, dare I say, a smudge of a league above a GS !!
The equivalent nearest option from Grand Seiko is the SBGX069 Ti. It's on my future radar......

Non CW of the Day

Post by gaf1958 »

SQ today ... and a little experiment. I've expressed my dislike of NATOs any number of times on the forum. Part of it has been the "cheap and cheerful" look - which I've admittedly gotten over - but also its the double thickness of strap running under the watch head that makes it sit up so damned high. The solution is of course a two part NATO - otherwise known as "a strap"! Threw one on this to see how it goes regarding comfort and practicality and after a day or so it seems like it's going to work. I've ordered a few others in different colours and sizes to use with watches I wear at the coast.

I had an alert set up on eBay for one of these (either generation) for a while but there hard to find in good condition.

Yours looks great.

James, I used to own an almost identical one (silver hands and bezel font, not gold) back in the day, this NOS one popped up recently, so it would have been almost rude not to buy it. ;)

Don't see many "modern" Komandiskie in the field: how do you rate it? Why? Is it a Seiko movement?

Of course its powered by the Inhouse movement 2416b. Like the modern Amfibia(not the usual Amphibias) and the K65 series this K34 is very well built.
The movement is slightly decorated and accuratly regulated(about -1,5s/d).
Dial and hands finish is very nice, the lume(on hands and the applied indizes/numbers) could be better but we know that problem from the CW watches ;)
The case finish is very good, the bezel lines up perfectly(120 clicks) and turns without play, but the grip could be better. A flaw is the mineral crystal, but we are talking about a 150€ watch.
The bracelet is well made, the solid endlinks are ok too. The clasp could be better but is still ok.

I would say it is comparable to mid priced Seikos like the new Turtles or my Orientstar Classic. Built quality of the Vostok is a bit better, at least compared to the Turtle i had.
Thanks for all that. A bezel with clicks? This I must have haha
