Interesting but pricey watch, that Nautische Instrumente Mühle-Glashütte Seebataillon GMT. Which doesn't exactly roll off the tongue!

Madness takes its toll. Please have exact change.

Wedding anniversery present from my wife, winging it's way from Canada shortly.

It's different and will be a talking point no doubt. I'm looking forward to seeing how it'll sit on the wrist.
Tonneau dial, round case. Interesting. What's the story?
My wife spotted it on eBay and liked the look of it, as I did.

Apparently made by a canadian watch maker from NOS 1940's movement fitted into a modern case. I'm waiting for it to arrive, hopefully before our wedding anniversary.

Whilst firmly focused upon other watches, this one has somehow fallen into my sights:

I may even go for it unless sanity returns :shock:

Haha, I was hunting the blue one last month. The model number is A32350 I think, and they are very affordable on the pre-owned market, just wait for a good deal.

There's a Speedy for everyone, and I like this one, though probably not enough to buy one.

I stumbled upon this one via an article on Worn & Wound.

http://wornandwound.com/2015/08/21/intr ... 03-a-sa-b/

Limited edition of 500 pieces
• Case diameter (mm): 41.0
• Case thickness (mm): 17.0
• Case lug width (mm): 20
• Lug to lug (mm): 47.5
• Weight - head only (grams): 88
• Case back: Transparent
• Case finish: Polished
• Case metal: Stainless steel
• Dial color: Blue
• Winding: Automatic
• Inert gas: Filled
• Copper sulphate: Capsule
• Manufacturer's limited warranty: 3 years

So much to like about this watch. At a halfway decent price to boot. Case diameter is good, but man, 17mm tall? I might still take the plunge anyway. It's my birthday soon, after all.

Sinn 101 - don't know where to find one. Close design to Breguet Type XX.

Peteo, I think the quoted 17mm is due to the domed crystal. I'm sure it's a tall watch, but I reckon a couple of mm come from the crystal shape, so it may be more wearable than it sounds. For sure, it's a lovely watch.

Yup, you're right. :( Not surprising given the 500 piece count and the exposure they got on W&W, ABTW and other places. Oh well. Maybe another Sinn then for me then.
