^^^ I think there’s two things important about the length of hands (for me!) - one is that at reading distance they should look ‘just right’ - and that just means there’s nothing that makes you double take because your brain thinks there’s a problem... and two - I like it when you look closely at a dial and there are nice little examples of how things line up. In your case it would be lovely to me if the hour hand *just* touched on the marker rather than crossing its border.

IMHO of course :D

I've been after one of these for a long time but can't find the right example. That looks perfect :thumbup:

If you ever decide to sell … :D

Haven't posted on this thread for a while, but into the early evening I've had this one on today. Still wow after quite some time.

In my opinion one of the best watches you can buy for £400 new. Gets so many comments when I wear it. Automatic movement, lovely black and red strap and amazingly accurate,
