Bought a nice watch to flex in rehab.
2022-07-02 at 11:54 AM UTCIt's a Relic by Fossil. My first with automatic movement. For you proles who don't know what automatic movement is, you can do a lot of crack and not hear the ticking that is powered by quartz-battery powered modern models, rather it utilizes a complex set of gears and cogs that wind up through natural movement on the wrist, then release it through 6 ticks per second.
The resulting increase ticks are quieter and produce a sweeping movement classically associated with the Rolex brand in watch making, typically 6 ticks per second. I've never had an automatic watch my birthday is in three weeks so I decided to order it.
I always buy myself a birthday present and I'm proud of myself for not just spending it on drugs even if it was a little pricier than I'm used to spending on a watch (40 or so normally for Timex Expeditions, this was 80) but I wanted to treat myself.
Here's the watch I selected.

You really hurt my feelings, not gonna lie, I was really proud of myself for splurging on this and I didn't expect you just to shit on it Riptotse :/
I'm kinda feel embarrassed and ashamed that I was excited about a watch that isn't anything to be proud of.

2022-07-02 at 10:42 PM UTCtyvm. a lot of images don't display because we have a web enhancement. I want you all to konw if I disappear it's not because I fucked up, got drunk and got kicked out of rehab (which would result in me drunkenly posting from the library) but because the firewall has detected the word nigga in the URL and blocked it. Let's pray that doesn't happen, I have about 5 weeks left.
Yeah i've never owned an automatic and not sure if I have ever seen one.

Here's the video from Amazon let's see if i can do this right, one of the wheels spins while you move and oyu can see it gyrating to keep time.
It is unreliable in the manner that is off about +/- 50 seconds a week, which isn't IMO bad.
2022-07-02 at 10:45 PM UTCI hate watches.
Pocket watches are better than wrist watches if you're going to wear one
That's what those corner pockets are for on jeans and some slacks. People never knew this.

different watch, I really dind't want those huge numbers on the face, i think the style is "divers" watch so you can idk spin the dial or some gay shit
2022-07-02 at 10:53 PM UTCI also don't take my wristwatch off ever unless I'm incarcerated, so I really wanted to upgrade from these that i've had and left in wisconsin at my mom's house (i have 3, 1 is blue, 1 is black and the other is white face like an school clock growing up kinda look but a more minimalist style)
So it's an upgrade for me. I also don't like being really high or meditating and hearing the click click click of the second hand on quartz style watches
The one I have right now are a 15$ watch that has different colors like a rainbow of colors and no brand and is super cheap and makes me FEEL gay with a plastic black band and a baby blue colored minute hand, a pink hour hand and a purple minute hand, with no numbers at all just different color | for the hours and || for the quarter hours and ya it's SHIT!
I only wear black leather bands too. So that's on all 3 + this one of my watches.
I think I have a metal one too with a metal wrist uh... band I guess they're called. too tacky looking and I had that much metal around my wrist.
2022-07-02 at 10:55 PM UTCi have done the dark dark brown black leather colour you see in picture 1 tho like a dark olive black ish colour, that's ok with me.
I treat my watches like I treat my knives, they're a tool to me and I keep them and use them and when they break, I bury them and mourn and get new ones I'm drawn too, I am in love with most of my weapons and believe they have some kinda like the Japanese Shintoism practices a form of a soul in them.
I'm weird as fuck I know
