Snap! I really like that dial arrangement - something I've not seen before.

The -ish time, though, would play havoc with my OCD, especially when trying to set it!

Some interesting looking watches being offered by Svalbard, but I think the NORDLYS BB14 could test one's eyes and patience.

For anyone interested in the MK3 jumping hour, it appears there is a 43mm with bracelet on CW's site for 51% off. You have to type in the search bar to find it.

Not a true single hander, but thought worth a post!

Close to similar, but different:
Defakto dial is simple printed and with standard hand, Svalbard dial with a pressed pattern and with other hand style

Recently filled a gap in my watch winder with a Meistersinger and I love it. Simple, clean and after a day, you get used to the single hand. I'd been looking for a while and a local store became an official dealer, tried a few on and was sold.

The JH is still 51% off - shame it's the 43mm version :(

In fact upon closer inspection it says '43mm version' but all of the codes and sizes everywhere else state 40mm :? :shock:
