This one from the late 60's, early 70's to start the day :D It's got a Lemania 873 movement, which is the same as an Omega 861 from the Speedy moon watch :D

Is that Speedy a new or old one?? I still fancy a Speedy, although with "the above" I've already kinda got one, soit would have to be an older 321 mov't piece, and they're expensive now, ora new one, and they're expensive too!! :shock: lol

It is a new ish one, 2001 with 1861 movement in it. I bought this specifically to change the dial and hands to this Image
I couldn't do it to a vintage watch, it would be sacrilege and the pre "72 moon watches have the nicest dials to start with

Pretty much the same movement then!! Nice panda dial........you don't see those very often!!

I'd like an early one with the dauphine hands, but they're rare and expensive, and you always run the risk it's been messed about with and not completely original, so I may just end up getting a new (ish) one?!!

That's gorgeous asqwerth.

I spent a few hours last night specifically looking at Nomos yet again.

Apparently you're not meant to call them 'bauhaus, but in my opinion that's fits exactly.

I have always been drawn to the Tangente Power Reserve but am now thinking of the Club Datum dunkel retailing around £1235 which at 38.5mm is perfect for me.

I'm sure you love yours.

The Club Datum looks great, and good value at that price. :thumbup:

New Year starts with my favourite watch...

I most certainly do! 8)

I find most of the Nomos models beautiful, although I would say that the Club series is not "Nomos-y" enough for me, if you know what I mean. They are still nice watches, though.

Gorgeous Nomos asqwerth. For me it has to be the Tangente or Tangomat. The narrow straight lugs define the Nomos look for me. One day...

I wasn't sure at first, but when I look at the standard Regattare compared to mine, I think the design is more balanced without the second hand. I'm happy with the choice that Dion made on this watch. So much so I'm starting the new year with it, after closing out 2011 with my C3 (first watch of 2011).
