Pretty much my thoughts, Iain, having acquired four watches in the last few months! I put on my Ulysse Nardin on Saturday to give me an excuse to play with the independent hour hand! Still wearing it three days later and thinking what a lucky boy I am.

You're absolutely right Paul.
I actually prefer that "old style" Aston Martin British Racing Green.

Well spotted Gary.

Same for me too :-s

Just come across Ochs und Junior. I could see architects and designers wearing their watches. And maybe me. :D

watching you fail in your quest for a “one watch” has been great entertainment

As a lover of functional, complicated and in particular pilot watches, the Reservoir Airfight Jet keeps me awake at night.
A mechanical regulator with jumping minutes, jumping hour, date and a power reserve indicator (like a fuel gauge) :D

But whoever designed it, he forgot the lume on the hours indicator :shock: Completely useless at night.
And for me, a second hand is also missing in order to read exact time.
Better sleep on and save the €5000 :D

^^ Reservoir definitely has cool stuff. But, the oversight or decision on the hour lume is pretty bad. I didn't realize that was an issue.

Dam it, that’s good.

Seriously though, Pete, you have been a member of this forum long enough to know all about clowns and jokers.

Just announced. Non-limited 40mm versions with loads of permutations of all the normal Doxa colours, straps/bracelets and steel or ceramic bezels.

No uk pricing yet but about $1450 (c. £1100) which is a very keen price IMO.

As Many of you may recall, I have been and continue to muse over a “proper” gold watch as a retirement gift to myself. I’m actually glad, in some respect that it’s still a few years off. More time to shop. :D I just assumed it would be in yellow gold. But then this. :shock: Oh…my… goodness….

Did someone say “left field”?
I like this brand more all the time.
