Seriously, I really really like this. Wish it had the display back.
I can see the attraction of the Railmaster, gorgeous watch....sorry, that's not really helping is it? :lol:
I agree it looks good. Often thought of buying one.

If I was still randomly buying I would have bought one last week. BNIB a week old. A decent price, 34% off RRP at £2,750.

Of course a really nice example on Ebay right now, at a very reasonable price. Came to my senses yesterday tho. I will have to see that dial in the metal first.
Time and money? I’ve spent most of mine on booze and women. The rest I just wasted…

Is that a PR indicator on the back in the upper left corner?

I believe it's just a partial view of the stopwork.

The lamba has a power reserve *indicator* below 12 ...

This PR model also has the same detail you queried ...

I've had a hankering for a Ventura for years and it won't go away. It doesn't help that the bracelet looks so fantastic.
I'd probably even have a quartz!

It’s certainly a very unique looking watch. I’m not sure I could go for the triangular case personally but I do agree the bracelet looks fantastic.

It's definitely an acquired taste. Whilst the unique case design makes it a no goer for every day wear i can't help but be drawn to it, and I do like the history that zones with it.

Nout wrong with that swap.

Not sure if you're aware Ant, but the 701 and 703 have been discontinued by Nomos. Club Campus and the Neomatiks are still going, but they've ceased production of this particular model.

Really?! :shock: That's not what I want to hear.

...just went on the Nomos site, and they're still listed...
