    Re: Photo Album of 24 hour watches......

    Ok I'll bite: what makes a real/true 24 hour watch?

    Off the top of my head, I can think of the following:
    1) It must show the hour on a 24 hour scale at all times (no pressing a button)
    But what about these:
    2) The 24 hour scale makes up one complete circle (no 2x12)
    3) The 24 hour scale should be the primary one (no subdials)

    I'm sure (1) is acceptable to all. But what about 2 and 3? And where does this leave the many watches with both 12- and 24-hour hands at the center? Personally I'd prefer a subdial to an exercise in trying to figure out which hour hand is the right one to look at. And what about a watch with both 12-hour and 24-hour subdials? There are lots of odd complications out there.

    I'm not trying to get legalistic. Just trying to figure out what a 24 hour watch is!

    But if you are looking for true 24h Seikos, then try 7F38 movement, also called Seiko Levante. In this forums you can find for sure some pictures of these watches.

    Another search would be 8M15. Very original watches, where the main hour hand can be switched between 12h and 24h modes.
    Hi Afka,

    Besides the Levante, are aware of any other models that would have 24h dial? All the one i find have 24h subdial. Any mechanical ones?

    No, I haven't ever seen a true 24h mechanical watch from Seiko.

    I have 2 of the Levantes (men's and women's). As a 24 hour watch it's also a bit of an oddity in that the minute hand only goes fully around the dial every 120 minutes (it's double sided though, with 60 minutes marked out on each half of the dial).

    A "true" 24 hour watch is a watch were the main hour hand goes around the dial once every 24 hours.

    I really like this watch...requires you to not get hung up on the exact minutes within the hour - which I think is fine. Very cool paradigm shift to have just one arm on the watch. I am tempted to get one of these...very tempted.

    Recently acquired Airnautic AN-24 submarine with vintage Yantar design. I put a stainless black PVD bracelet on it. Looks much better in person than in these photos. Lume is very good. I love the design of this watch! The face is very well thought out. Note how the hour hand goes all the way to the edge of the inner hours circle, and the minute hand goes all the way out to the edge of the outer ring (makes it easier to read). Personally I prefer the 12 noon to be at the top of the dial - feels more intuitive to me. The top half of the dial is lighter color to represent daytime, the black bottom half represents night. I really like the cylindrical shape of the watch case. You can find these on the OCEAN7 website.
