Trying to talk something through, and I don't have any IRL watch nerd friends.
I currently have a Vostok 710557. It was my first dive watch and what I loved about it was the functionality of the timing bezel and that I absolutely did not care about what circumstances I'd be wearing it in. I knew it would be fine.
What I didn't count on was the amount of magnetism it would be subjected to in a day, with the cherry on top being that my better half wanted a flappy-screen thing on our back door that's held together with magnets. My poor Vostok went from +5 a day to +25 a day just like that. I find that I'm having to be conscious of where my wrist is as I'm exiting my house and that's just silly. The whole point of this watch was that I could wear it and not worry about it. I have plenty of fragile vintage pieces if I want to worry about what's on my wrist.
I also miss the date on occasion, but I have a phone for that if needed.
A Scurfa would be similar thickness and size, just as durable, and have the quartz movement less affected by minor magnetism. Bonus of drilled lug holes and sapphire crystal.
Is it crazy to spend roughly twice as much as the Vostok cost to get a quartz Scurfa?
Vostok for reference.
