I accidentally got a Izod shirt pink from an accident with laundry. :p My grandfather was an avid golfer and got several Izod shirts for my brother and me in the early eighties. We were also in Scouting at the time. Some of our red neckerchiefs got in the load of whites and out came pink shirts, socks, and skivvies. :D I was an early teen at the time.

Now in my fifties, I have had several pink shirts for decades. Only got my first pink watch in early ‘22. My mother strongly disliked pink anything; she’d been stuck with the color by her parents and resented it for her whole life.

I’ve always had a total aversion to pink and looking around me you still can’t see any pink in my world. But a pink watch? I’m not sure what has shifted, but yeah - i think a pink watch would suit me well. Perhaps it was the arrival of a few salmon watches on the scene that chipped away at my pink phobia. Salmon pink is a very classy colour on a watch. Barbie pink? I’d have never believed it! Looking forward to CW pink later today :thumbup:

I'm completely at home with pink: pink shirts, pink shorts, pink self-tie bowties. I'm sure I'd be fine with pink oh let's just call them slacks and not trousers or pants 'cos "pants" gets confusing. I can see four maybe five pink shirts from here. I can see a basically pink runner on the landing. Dang it, some of us are basically pink in the bath/shower.

I don't think that many supporters of Liverpool football club would thank a defunct watchmaker or us for suggesting their club red is actually pink but it's not a million miles away from the old C7 IRR which always looked a bit pale to my eyes. Pink crocs? Not for me though.

So a pink watch? Why ever not. I've got a partly pink strap somewhere.

And the Nomos club which is more of a raspberry than a barbie pink.

Assuming the Nomos that you've mentioned is this one, it's been in and out of my basket on three or four occasions. I really need to try one on to compare the 36mm and 38mm before I think about committing.

^^^ yes, that’s the one. I’d say raspberry but I had thought that ‘pink’ was going to cover all bases today - seems not :lol:

Kirsch? Cherry brandy? Vimto? Beeetroot juice? Some energy drink in a can which never sees the light of day?

Why'd you only put that sauce in a 36mm case? Would 39mm be just too much? I can see how it wouldn't go behind the orange of a GMT hand.

See? You say ‘Barbie Pink’ and everyone knows where they stand. Everyone is certain it’ll match their pink trousers and there will be no fashion faux-pas down the club. Today’s announcement throws all that in jeopardy. Mulberry just might not match the greyhound...

Depends very much on wrist size - far more than many brands, due to the length of the lugs.

I have tried on numerous Nomos models over the years, in all sizes.

I typically wear 36-38mm fixed bezel three handers. 39-42mm dive watches. 6.75-7.0” wrist.

For the my preference due to the legs is the 36mm models.

Yep try on before you decide. :thumbup:
