I think that Nomos is amazing too, but perhaps it only looks nice if your wrist is significantly larger than the watch.

My wrist is under 7" and I went for the 40mm Club Automat and couldn't be happier.

For the future I'm looking at three watches - Rolex Datejust 2, Nomos Orion and Nomos Tangente. Unfortunately for me they are well in the future :(

Looks good on that thick strap, too.

Sorry, I think both the Clubs (Serlo and Sabbath) are on the edge of too large with the lugs overhanging (could be its just the picture angle). The Nomos Zurich has shorter lugs. The Atlantik is too big for everyone it seems.

It is the angle, because whenever I take pictures of this watch, I have to tilt my wrist so as not to have the camera reflected on the dial. My Nomos club is the small 36mm and it fits perfectly.

That looks pretty much perfect.

Edit: That goes for Serlo too.

I was guessing that you were referring to Dancematt's picture, and your're right!!! It looks perfect!

Today I had a look at four watches in the flesh: the Glashütte Original Panomatic Lunar and Seventies, the IWC Portofino and the JLC Reverso Duoface. All of them are very nice watches, however the Glashütte Panomatic Lunar builds too high in my opinion, the Seventies and the Portofino are fine but on the verge of "one milimeter more and it would be too big". I must admit that the decoration of the movement is fantastic! However, how often do you see it?

So here it is, the watch of my dreams that has passed the reality check: the Reverso is so different to all of my watches. You really have to see it in the flesh to appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into the details on the dials.

Today I really were able to wear the watch, i.e. the strap was fastened to determine whether the watch really fits (last time I only had it loosely on my wrist and wasn't sure whether it really is the "perfect" fit). Lo and behold, it is the perfect size. This means: no more watches for me until Christmas time, but I fear that another Nomos is going to destroy this plan :D. I also don't think that I can justify spending that much on just one watch :oops:.

I'm day dreaming about my two Makos, in about 6 weeks time, by a pool somewhere warm and sunny! 8)

The Hamilton Pan Europ blue 3-hander still haunts me. I think I may prefer having that to my Tropik SS.

.......... but I fear that another Nomos is going to destroy this plan :D.

i'm calling Downer's Rule #6 on you here Andreas - accept no substitutes..........
that Reverso is worthy of a dream - and a year spent saving and passing on another (another?) Nomos........

you know it makes sense :D
watching you fail in your quest for a “one watch” has been great entertainment

The Rolex Sea Dwellers have been on my mind for years. I prefer watches with date but am not a big fan of the cyclops. So the SD is a perfect fit. The new model has got some good upgrades but, unfortunately, the price has also been upgraded. I like the old discontinued model too. This would be my first Rolex if I can ever save up for it. One day... Hopefully :)
