That's really nice. I know I might be in the minority but normally Nomos doesn't really float my boat but that one i do like a lot. :thumbup:
Agree totally. Nomos does absolutely nothing for me whatsoever....

And that may be the nub of the problem. It may be just a bit too 'pretty' for me or my current lifestyle, which is very much seven-day weekends. If I return to work, I am sure it will get worn more, but otherwise, it will either remain a rarely used watch or become a casualty whenever the urge to buy another watch becomes too strong. :D

And in Cambridge today.... The place is heaving with tourists and freshers. Went into the Fitzwilliam Museum for a bit of peace but why do some people think it necessary to stand 13 inches away from a small artwork so that no bu&&er else can see it. Felt a bit like Basil Fawlty.

As a fellow 7 day weekender I also seem to wear some of my former 'work' watches less and my 'casual/holiday' watches more. However I have decided that going back to the 6:30am commute just to wear them more is a step too far! :lol:

^^ Yes, I am looking for a job where I work for 1 day every fortnight. This would allow me to rotate the formal watches. :D
