Second time lucky hopefully? Wonder who are the competitors. I guess a few nomos are in the lineup.

There's a huge choice, which makes it all rather random - there's no way 99.9% people will have a clue what most of those watches actually look like.
Anyway, the C900 photo is well chosen, which is a good start!

The list does contain some real shockers and a lot of boring, over-priced yawns, but having said that there are several that look well worth investigation.
Regards,
Mark

Well, I struggled between the leopard print Hublot or the gargantuan Aspen. I mean, everyone has to have something as classy as those in their collections, don't they? :shock: actually, the piece that made me chortle out loud was the Fortis jump hour. Truly awful.

What is with the carpet bombing approach of the big boys? Shouldn't something like this be limited to one watch per manufacturer?

My vote went for the mono pusher but I tell you, it was a close run thing between that and the Montblanc chrono. When that piece came on the scene, I was instantly smitten.

I believe these watches are all the nominated ones and are not broken down by category. They have just been lumped together for the readers poll.

Got my vote. Shame these type of polls only factor in the look of one watch and not the many other factors that results in a great watch and exeprience.

Some truly horrible looking watches have been nominated, with a few good ones - CW and Nomos.

Voted for CW - fingers crossed.

Lots of beautiful watches in the contest; quite a number misguided designs; and a few absolutely hideous ones.

Take a look at that Fortis Flieger Chrono. Do you think anyone can tell the time on that one? Or discover what other functions it has? I can make heads nor tails of it.
