Now THAT is a proper CW. Understated looks, superb movement. It speaks for itself.

Many congratulations.

Very nice looking watch Chris.

I'm assuming that there is another hand underneath.

At the risk of igniting the clarity debate (of which I want no part) is the second hand a different colour? It is hard to see in the pictures.

Fantastic looking watch regardless.

Silver second hand, blue hour and minute. Easy to read even without my reading glasses! Even more so as the second hand is moving!

Many thanks. It was more of an aesthetics question as opposed to ergonomics. I thought that the hands were blue, but was not sure. I have never really thought that there would be a problem with the clarity, as there is one hand whizzing round faster than the other!

Oh dear, I've just spent 5 mins photographing this because I've been staring at it for too much today.
And I find that Chris is showing his as well.
But I think you just can't get too much of a good thing.

Some might say it's too big
Some might say it's got too much reflection
Some might say the hands aren't clear enough.
Frankly my Dear, I don't give a damn, I flippin love this watch.
It's elegant, and big. So there.

Here's my CW of the day.
It's got two 5's on the dial.
Today is the day of the 5 day Chronometer.
