Whilst this particular dial version isn't of interest, I am keen to try on the blue dial. The lug to lug is 49mm.

I tried these on as well. They wear really nice. The black ones are kind of dull but the blue one is very pretty. Price wise they don't seem worth it.
I miss all the great things that may never be.

I like the look of these but would have to try one on and save a bit

Does anyone else go round and round in circles with their watch decisions, or is it just me? ](*,)

I go round in circles and then round again

I think the Club is nicer than the Minimatik so it's between the Club and Datejust and I'd go club personally

I'm sure most of us do. I've wanted a Nomos for years, but I keep bouncing between the Ludwig, Orion, Ahoi, and that new Club Atlantik. When the time comes I'd like to walk into an AD with a trusted friend and try them all.

I would have if not for my wrecking ball toddler son. I can hardly wear them now for fear of jam smearing and duplo bashing. That's why the cwc's and animals have had so much wear probably I hardly wear anything new thats nor a beater.

Tried it on again today. Almost pulled the trigger.

That's about right I guess. Two sizes maybe. A lot of fans prefer the 35mm Ahoi against the 40mm version for that reason
Did you ever decide to go for this??

There may be one less in stock now............

As you can see Bern,.my reduction/consolidation plans are going extremely well! :lol:

You know me, I am a sucker for a Bremont. Also, as I don't seem to like any of their new stuff, I may as well get the old stuff, and while waxing lyrical about what a wonderful watch it was, the thought occurred that if it so good, why haven't I got one!

Snap, both of those are in my thoughts also and also unsure of dial colours....
would you go for the ceramic bezel Seamaster Diver? Seems a reasonable price at just under £3k rrp in ADs
I think I prefer the Seamaster 150 with the raised surround around the date.
