So you won't be buying a Laco Erbstuck any time soon, Steve.

One word too many in there, Guy. You didn’t need “soon”.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

What I have in mind is: Old Radium (Caramac) lume; faux-patina on bronze cases; distressed straps.
I agree. Faux patination of the lume is a sin! I mean a Sinn. :D

I like curvy flowing lugs, and chamfers on lugs. This a characteristic shared by the two most iconic watches, atleast the older versions - Submariners and Speedmasters.

I am not big on cushion cases usually, or lugs like this -

Or like the ones on Nomos watches.

Title has a typo - "where" -> "were"

Hi as regards to fingers or hands on watches. I was under the impression that hands were on clocks. Fingers were on watches. But I have no idea where the impression came from.

But what would the golf playing pensioners then do when they need to check the date to write on the score card?

^^^^^ Fair comment Bjorn - perhaps Rolex could compromise by just leaving the cyclops on the mixed steel/gold versions, that should cover most of the Rolex wearing golf playing pensioners.... :)

I know of no golf playing pensioner who wears a Rolex on the course, but I do know plenty with amazing watch collections. :wink:
