Do Rolex and Porsche (cars) share the same design team / philosophy? Both, imo, don't want to change the basic initial design.

And both companies are right to stick with their iconic designs!

The Omega Seamaster 120m Automatic Chronograph , AKA the big blue , a vintage watch . Never actually ever seen one in the flesh /metal , but still a great looking watch IMO .

There must be a Rolex out there somewhere that you would like; what about this one - gold, manual wind on a strap and comes with a Rolex silk handkerchief? :wink:

I know it's another Omega - but I rather like the look of this:

I really like the new Nomos Metro Stadtschwarz (town black?)

But at 38mm it might be too big for me (we all know that this is going to wear like a 40 or 42mm watch due to the lugs).

So I am dreaming about this one as well:

I know that the Minimatik was designed for women, but I like the blue numbers in combination with the red hands and the golden and black dots. I have to see this in the flesh!
