So I picked this up over the weekend on a whim because it pushed a couple of different buttons for me. Not really a pilot design and not really a marine chronometer. Nice piece so far, it's keeping excellent time.

That's gorgeous. :clap: More of an Aviator than anything else IMHO.

Aiming to look at some Hanharts myself on tomorrow's visit to Page and Cooper. Particularly this Primus Pilot, which I saw several months ago when I finished up buying my Damasko DK15.

Looking very good indeed IAJ. :thumbup:

A tad larger than your norm I believe. Is this a new direction for you?

Guy
Not really a new direction, I just realised I was limiting myself and can actually pull off larger watches without looking ridiculous. That said, this is only 41.5mm but still hefty because of the 7750 inside. And no rotor wobble yet, which annoyed me on the Longines 1954.

It was trying on the Bremont ALT1 that got me thinking because at 43mm I was surprised how reasonably it fitted. But I can't buy a Bremont because Greg won't talk to me if I do :(
Comments appreciated. :thumbup:

Interesting to hear your thoughts on Bremonts. I saw a gent wearing a Supermarine recently and felt that it looked small; got to be the shape and curve of the lugs.

Thanks Guy, for some reason I have been attracted to German's lately, although I keep buying CWL's. Those Damasko's are on my list for this year.

This watch is nicely finished but the movement is fairly plain compared to my two Nomos. I think it's on a par with the C9's at least as far as case quality.
CWL:C30,C5FLE,C60(2),C60GMT(2),C8(2),C9JH,C11Tit Ext,C11MSL,C9SS,C95D,C9GMT,C9FLE Proto, C60 Chrono

Question: How hard can it be to take a lume shot with an iPhone?
Answer: Much harder than expected. This is a crop of the original shot.
I am not a collector of watches. I used to be able to say that and know I was telling the truth.

I find importing it into instagram then using the filters to enhance the lume works best.
