    They are pretty big, got it mainly for the thick rubber strap. There are a ton of little features but I am not sure how accurate they all are.

    Someone's got to make up for all hairless Asian wrists in this thread!

    The watch has gained/lost zero seconds since the turn of the month, so I'm a happy man The month before that it had gained about a second or two. The genuine article must perform very well

    Just at my watchmaker buddies house last night for some brewskies.

    LOL its funny having him in the luxury watch business, he handed me a couple Rolex's and some Hublots. After seeing one I really liked I asked on the price; $45,000.....
    Oh... uh.... cool....

    He lent me the very first watch he ever built. I thought that was pretty damn cool. Obviously it means a lot to him so Im quite worried about wearing it, I have such big wrists (being single sucks lol) jk. That I have to wear it on its biggest setting; which is almost falling off.






    (shitty iphone pics)
    So used to these perpetual movement watches, Im not used to having to wind a watch. Every second day I have to fully wind it.



    EDIT: Just watching these two on ebay. I want to see what they eventually go for.

    ^Its a joke buddy, relax. I think its pretty safe to say Im not into any of the above.

    I think the only people that take it seriously are the dads that have daughters roughly around that age.... even then.

    Graham, that's a gorgeous caseback. Is that a Unitas 6498? It looks a tad different than what I've seen before...

    ^ I'll ask my buddy; he built it. When I find out tomorrow I'll edit this post with the details.

    Looks like a Unitas 6498 hand wound movement to me.

    No doubt, that's what I imagine. This one just looks ever so slightly more decorated. But as we know, this kind of thing is done to movements all the time!

    Great piece, nonetheless

    Its because he ¨skeletonized¨ it himself.

    Holy fuck you guys are good. I didn`t even know that. I think thats what he said, but I dont remember; as we were well into the green beer at that point.

    Yeah looking at this, I think it is the 6497. Its about one third the way down.

    Strictly speaking, the 6497 has the subdial at the 6 o'clock position and the 6498 has the subdial at 9 o'clock, but they're essentially the same movement Your friend definitely did a nice job with the decoration!

    I think it's the other way around, 7 has subdial at 9, and 8 has it at 6, so Graham_A_M is right that it's a 6497. But ya, it's the same thing anyways apart from seconds subdial location.

    The 6498 is very recognizable. It's even been copied by the asian manufacturers (all the fake manual wind watches use them). Even TAG Heuer uses a decorated version (Calibre 1).
