For Sale: Junkers Bauhaus - Ref. 6086-5
Same watch: [link]
I purchased this watch new off Amazon in March 2017. I only wore it a few times before deciding it was too small for my wrist. The watch will come in the original box with the operating instructions. I am asking $275 shipped.
Please Read There are small nicks on the crystal. There are 2 at the top near the 12 and one in between the 12 and 1. I have tried to capture them, but I found it rather difficult.
Thank in advance.
I love bahaus designs. I'm currently looking at a chrono junkers as a birthday present.
I'm about to buy my first watch. Here are my preferences, measurements and my current buying plan; can I get some feedback?
Style: I'm looking for a more casual watch or just slightly dressy watch (my understanding of this: something I'd wear with rolled up sleeves with a plaid button-up shirt, or maybe a white dress shirt with a knitted tie at a semi-formal event). Something without too much going on design-wise. I've liked some Bauhaus watches I've looked at. Hard to describe, maybe just better to look at the linked watches below.
Strap: I don't like bracelets, so I'm planning on a leather (either suede, or a really nice soft leather) or fabric strap. So far I've been searching for a face/strap combo I like, but it occurs to me that I should maybe only look at the face with the idea that I could get a third party strap?
Movement: Being new to watches I'm not very confident in preferring a quartz vs mechanical vs automatic movement. I do like the smooth second-hand movement of automatic/mechanical watches, though.
Wrist size: 5.75–6 inches
Price range: I'm not 100% sure but probably $200–600.
Here are the top watches that I like:
40mm Rossling and Co Automatic Watch with a tweed strap.
44m Spirit of St Louis with leather strap. I like the face design of this watch but it's huge, far too big for me.
40mm Junkers Bauhaus watch
My current plan is to buy the Rossling and Co watch. Any other recommendations besides this? I've read the buying guides for the 0–250 and 250–500 ranges.
I'm also planning to get a third-party suede strap for the Rossling watch. (I think Rossling and Co used to have suede straps for their watches, but no longer sell them). Any recommendations on where to get a quality 20mm suede strap? I see good straps at Bas and Lokes and Hodinkee, but they're ~$160; are there cheaper but still quality options besides those out there?
I am looking to get my first watch, and am in need of some advice. My budget tops out at about $400. I checked out the buying guide, and these stood out to me:
I like these because they seem to have a more simple and minimal style, but are also seem to be a bit old fashioned, while still modern, if that makes any sense at all.
I also like the idea of a watch that I can eventually pass down perhaps, but either way I am looking for something that will last for the foreseeable future. I think mechanical watches are cool, however I think that a quartz watch may be more practical for my purposes. I like watches that are more slim, and don't have overly large faces. However, that being said, I am a decent sized guy and do not have dainty wrists.
I am also looking for a watch that I can wear casually, as well as to work (business casual - professional dress). I am looking for something with a leather strap as well.
Would anyone be able to provide me with suggestions, either specific or just brand suggestions? If there are any warnings or brands to stay away from, that would be appreciated also!
Hey, looking for a starter watch. Something that I can wear casually but also get away with formally. Waterproof would be cool but not necessary. Highest I can go is $400. I like to think I have simplistic tastes - not huge on the Seiko aesthetic. I'm in college.
Examples of watches I like:
>Junkers Bauhaus: [link]
This one has a bit going on and I'm not sure if it's quite what I'm looking for, still interested if people can comment on it though.
> Graf Zeppelin Hindenburg LZ129: [link]
A bit farther than the Junkers and a bit too expensive.
> Swatch Once Again: [link]
Had this watch for a while and enjoyed it, but I want to go to something a little bit higher up and classier. Ticking drove me crazy.
> Daniel Wellington Classic St Mawes: [link]
I've been told that this one is a bit 'basic' but I like the aesthetic. I think I want something near here.
Do you want a chronograph?
Otherwise if you don't want a chronograph, this is a good choice:
If you don't care about quartz, the Junkers Bauhaus is a sharp chrono in your price range.
I've been lurking on this subreddit and finally decided to buy this off the Christopher Ward website and it looks amazing! I was choosing between this watch and this Junkers watch but I settled on this one because the watch face looked so clean and I loved the small machined features on it like the digits. One thing I don't like though is how formal the alligator styled watch strap looks. I would like to wear this watch daily and I normally wear a t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers. Is there a watch strap that would fit better or should I just leave the watch at home for the casual occasions? I would love some suggestions for watch straps as well. My wrist size is about 6.7 inches (~170mm) if that helps. My budget is around $70 but no more than $100 ideally.
