Stunning watch Andreas. What is the lug to lug measurement?

Neil, I think it is 50mm, so actually a watch that should be too big for me and my 16.5 cm wrist. Well, at 40mm it definitely is my biggest Nomos, but I just fell in love with the bluegold dial. It is one of those watches that are very difficult to photograph. Most pictures don't do them justice and you really have to see it in the flesh yourself to get an idea of the complexity of the dial that can look like black, dark blue or bright blue in different light. It is also the watch that kind of stopped my yearning/looking for other watches (also due to the fact that I banged it onto a paper cutting machine after two weeks of owning it; the first ding is the deepest, in fact so deep that you cannot possibly polish it without losing the razor like edge of the bezel... but now it's my watch 8)).

Thanks. At 50mm that is probably the largest I could get away with. I think I may try one on at an AD.
