My Max Bill fits the 'bill' as a watch that wears thin. Unobtrusive, goes under shirt cuffs nicely, great legibility and it's mechanical. OK, it's hardly a Piaget (saw a couple in Florence last week and fell in love) but it's definitely a keeper for me.

I happen to think that the Zenith Ultra Thin is one of the coolest looking watches on the Planet.

Just as well we're all different 'cos who would buy all the big watches if everyone was like me?

I also understand that there are people out there who don't like scooters!! :shock: What a weird world we live in.
