this one certainly won't look shrinking on your wrist. it's definitely your sized.

Tried one of these today (new GO AD in Munich airport)...

Very nice, and good to see a touch of lume on the hands.

I so want to like these, but the utterly classic design is stunning and then the "noddy" font just grates on me.

Richard did you try any other GOs? Having tried on a Lange One a few weeks ago, I keep thinking about the "budget" alternative.

Nick what you really need is one of these as a companion for your DSSD.

Comes highly recommended. Lovely detail and very slim. I think of it as a playful dress watch. Don't let the 36mm size put you off either, the lugs make it wear a touch bigger and would suit most wrists i think.
Thanks its my top pick at the moment. I've got smaller wrists so think the size would work well. Need to find somewhere to try one on

It was a bit of a rush job. I had a very quick look at the display and asked to handle the Sixties as that was the one I've been thinking about for a while.

They did have a good selection, although I did not notice any of the Panamatics. Hopefully I'll have a bit more time next week.

Wise words. The big date looks great, although in the 60's model, it's also in a bigger case. As for the thickness, it was a very light and thin case, with a nicely domed crystal. Not sure about the overall height, but it was a very nicely proportioned watch.

Overall though, probably a bit dressy for me. Might try the Seventies next - although it's a big old unit.

I have been tempted with these Neil, but as part of the ongoing journey the next purchase is really for a beater.

The Sinn ticks all the boxes and whilst there is a bit of crossover with the Bremonts the simplicity of the Sinn does appeal.

The yachtmaster 2 could be found a home though!! :)

Ungainly, big and butch and will be hated by most in here, but ooooh mamma.

Guilty as charged :thumbup:

Not sure about the 'Frankfurt' version, I prefer the regular one, but the black with vintage lume takes some beating. Like the UX sword hands too.
