^^ Me too, Ferg. I tried it on again yesterday evening, and even made some enquiries about the price. The AD in Munich Airport wasn't prepared to do much of a deal (new model etc), and the EUR:GBP is not too clever right now, so it didn't stack up.

I compared it to a blue Milgauss (I know they're not really similar) but I strongly preferred the Omega for its subtlety and timelessness.

Good to hear it's still good on second viewing Richard.
The exchange rate is good for me at the moment though ;)

Well I'm not sure if I've ever dreamt of a watch on this thread yet but I'm currently deciding between this:

A watch:

And this:

Not a watch:

One would be clearly easier to keep from the missus for a while

JS Watch is a very interesting watchmaker. I really like the 101 model.

They are very nice watches that I would be happy to own - however currently not at the expense of one of my collection. Both the blue and the white dials are lovely and have that something extra about them.

Unusually (for me) I much prefer the Globemaster on the strap. The bracelet end links are very square... I'm also surprised that I like the bezel.

Agreed. Mostly. Globemaster looks better on strap. Nice watch, not as nice as a vintage Connie though.

Want the Yachtmaster, love the quirkiness of the Proplof, probably end up with the Brietling - it's a blue and white thing for me at the moment......

+1 on the get the bike comment....it's amazing. The watch, while quite nice, isn't.

Front-runner at the moment, value for money being the biggest priority, is a Steinhart Nav B-Uhr Type B in 44mm size:

I realize it breaks my "no automatics" rule, but maybe I'll give them one last chance (Steinhart do handwound watches, but not of this particular model).
How about a Laco? Available in 42mm or 45mm, Automatic or Hand Wound

You're right, but that Laco costs twice as much as the Steinhart...
